Donald Trump has failed so badly, and so grotesquely, that some prominent Republicans now say they’re voting for Democratic nominee Joe Biden just to get rid of Trump. Today, 2016 Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina joined their ranks. This matters, because it gives anti-Trump conservatives permission to vote Democrat.
Suffice it to say, Trump wasn’t particularly happy about it, but his response was bizarre, even for him:
Why does Donald Trump think he beat Carly Fiorina twice in one campaign? He doesn’t really seem to understand how primaries work, making it all the more strange that he somehow won one. But when Trump has reached the point where prominent Republicans say they’re voting Democrat, and Trump’s spiteful response is that they “should” do precisely that, he’s not even trying to win, is he?
Of course we have to remain vigilant, because no matter how much Donald Trump tries to blow this election for himself, we’re all too aware that flukes can happen. We just need to keep working hard on important things like voter registration and turnout.
