Trump Goes Berserk on Twitter after U.S. Supreme Court Dismisses Texas Lawsuit Challenging the Election!

Dear Commons Community,

President Donald Trump shared his reaction to the Supreme Court dumping the Texas lawsuit challenging the election — and it wasn’t pretty (see tweets below).

He ranted after midnight last night about getting “screwed,” boasting he “got more votes than any other sitting president in history” — yet “purportedly lost” (because Joe Biden got 7 million more votes).

So Trump “intervened” on behalf of the Texas lawsuit seeking to toss all the votes in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, which happened to vote for Biden. The suit was backed by 17 other red states (“wonderful states,” the president noted in his tweet).

But the court tossed the suit Friday because Texas “lacked standing” to challenge votes in other states, it said in a brief, unsigned order.

In “a flash” the suit was “thrown out and gone, without even looking at the many reasons it was brought,” Trump angrily tweeted. “A Rigged Election, fight on!” he added.

He complained bitterly that no court has yet judged his complaints about election fraud on their “merits” — even though there is absolutely no evidence of election fraud. “It’s a “legal disgrace, an embarrassment to the USA!!!” he tweeted.

He grumbled that the Supreme Court “really let us down,” and has “no wisdom, no courage!”

Twitter marked the tweets about a rigged election “disputed.”

The president didn’t detail how he might “fight on.” But Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuiliani, the mastermind behind Trump’s failed legal assault on election results, told Newsmax yesterday that more suits will be filed.

Sorry, Donald, join Melania and start packing for your move to Mar-a-Lago!
