Well, we knew this was not going to be easy.

The morning after he declared from the White House East Room that “all voting must stop,” President Donald Trump’s strategy of undermining the democratic process was coming into sharper focus, even as it failed to gain widespread traction among Republicans or even his own campaign.

With millions of ballots still being counted, Trump awoke in an agitated state, tweeting or retweeting messages that sought to undermine confidence in the vote counting process. At least three were labeled by Twitter as “disputed” or “misleading.”

Several top Republicans, including those close to Senate Republican leaders, were privately dismissive of Trump’s suggestion that ballots shouldn’t be counted after Election Day.

And even his own campaign said in a call with reporters that Trump’s remaining path to victory will rely on those still-uncounted ballots in places where the process of tabulating results has taken longer.

What emerged was a picture of a President intent on using all the tools at his disposal to force a victory, including wielding misinformation about the integrity of the vote and an onslaught of legal maneuvers, even as the results were still coming in and his advisers insisted the math would turn in his favor.

Trump is also trying to stop some of the ballots from being counted and asking for recounts.

The Trump campaign said it filed a lawsuit Wednesday in Michigan state court demanding access to locations where ballots are being counted in one of the undecided states that could determine whether President Donald Trump gets another four years in the White House.

The campaign said it is calling for a temporary halt in the counting until it is given “meaningful access” in numerous locations and allowed to review ballots that already have been opened and processed. Trump is running slightly behind Democratic nominee Joe Biden in Michigan.

The campaign also said it would ask for a recount in Wisconsin, a state The Associated Press called for Biden on Wednesday afternoon. Campaign manager Bill Stepien cited “irregularities in several Wisconsin counties.”

Yeah, the “irregularities” are that the ballots have the oval next to Biden’s name filled in. 

We all knew this was coming, Trump essentially told us as much, but I seriously doubt that it is going to do him any good. 

The people have spoken, and if he doesn’t like what we have to say he can just….

Yeah, that!
