The election's over, but try telling that to the losers

As I write, it has been three weeks since New York business mogul and professional spoiled brat Donald Trump upset former Secretary of State and professional carpetbagger Hillary Clinton to become the next President. Unfortunately, while Trump played the jingoistic, xenophobic, pseudo-patriot and even went so far as to use misogyny in his campaign, and continues with his already stale act until he is sworn into office, the backlash is starting to look like a case of the pot calling the kettle black.

For all of Trump's accusations----with no evidence to support his claims----that the election was rigged, there are now charges that his campaign supposedly rigged the election. Trump's brainless dittoheads have accused billionaire philanthropist George Soros of being responsible for the anti-Trump protests across the country in the wake of the election. Again, there is no evidence to support those lame claims.

And, then, there is Jill Stein.

The Green Party candidate finished so far behind Trump---dead last in a field of four---that she could get a headstart on February's Daytona 500. However, Stein has embarrassed the Greens by filing lawsuits in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, and planning to do the same in Michigan, seeking a recount. Mrs. Clinton's camp has thrown its support behind Ms. Stein in Wisconsin. Which begs us to ask, of course, how much cheese do they want with their whine?

Trump, of course, can't resist getting his digs in, because of his addiction to attention. Consider:

"This is a scam by the Green Party for an election that has already been conceded, and the results of this election should be respected instead of being challenged and abused, which is exactly what Jill Stein is doing," ---Trump, quoted by CNBC's website, 11/27/16.

I've never known Green Party or any other independent party candidates to resort to litigation post-election. The independents have never been given a fair shake on the national stage, and if Ms. Stein wanted to file a suit, it should've been during the campaign in order to ensure she'd have an equal amount of time for herself and Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson during the debates. Independent candidates were given equal forums in localized debates here in New York, but why not on national television?

Digression aside, the ladies are fighting a losing battle trying to convince the Electoral College not to confirm Trump as our next President. Granted, he'd be the first one who'd have to have a psychologist in his cabinet without an official post, but this is what Trump's paranoid rhetoric during the campaign has spawned. The last time a Presidential election was disputed was, of course, in 2000, when GW Bush won his first term despite some issues in Florida. However, that shiznit-storm died down before the holidays, as I recall.

I didn't vote for Trump, but I accept the fact that he won the election. He's presenting himself to the American people as being prematurely senile, like his pal Vince McMahon did on WWE programming for several years. The man just turned 70, after all, but behaves like a spoiled child when someone speaks negatively of him.

Hmmmm, come to think of it, maybe he should call Dr. Phil.........
