Former national security adviser John Bolton said on Sunday that Republican leaders need to explain to voters that President Trump has lost the election, even though the president has yet to concede.
Appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” Bolton was asked by host Martha Raddatz what could be done to convince Trump voters that President-elect Joe Biden had won the election legitimately and fairly.
“I think it’s very important for leaders in the Republican Party to explain to our voters, who are not as stupid as the Democrats think, that, in fact, Trump has lost the election and that his claims of election fraud are baseless,” said Bolton.
“The fact is that we’ve seen litigation in all the key battleground states, and it has failed consistently,” he added. “Right now, the Trump campaign is doing the legal equivalent of pinching pennies.”
Bolton noted that there has been no convincing evidence from the Trump campaign thus far, saying, “It’s clearer and clearer there isn’t any evidence.”
So once again we are so far down the rabbit hole that John Bolton sounds like a voice of reason.
The truth is that the Republicans were already dumbed down to an infantile state by the lies and manipulations of the Bush Administration, and Donald Trump just went ahead and stomped on all of their remaining brain cells.
The next GOP leader may be able to quite literally lead them over a cliff and they will gladly follow with no thought of the fall that awaits them.
Update: Maybe the Republicans should tell this guy first.
I WON THE ELECTION!

Damn! I have seen delusional before, but Trump takes it to a whole new level.
