Sometimes I can’t bring myself to dive headlong into the swamp that is the misogynistic internet. So today I decided to take a look instead at a different sort of swamp — the Twitter hashtag #BidenWillNeverBePresident, where an assortment of Trumo dead-enders have decided to congregate and enjoy their collective delusions together.
You might think that, what with the Electoral College confirming Biden’s victory and all that, the MAGAs would have at least started to accept the reality of their situation, namely the fact that their God Emperor is a huge loser. Not a chance. It’s like they’re trying a sort of do-it-yourself version of The Big Lie — repeating their favorite lies about the elections endlessly and hoping this will transform them into the truth.
More than a few suggested that Biden’s alleged “treason” should be punished by a stay in Gitmo — or worse. Many thought that Biden’s supporters should also face jail, fantasizing about QAnon’s long-promised mass arrests.
Some called for Trump to declare martial law:
A few directed their wrath at, of all people, Mitch McConnell — for belatedly recognizing Biden as president-elect.
Others directed their ire at far-right “news” outlet Newsmax for its crime of accepting the results of the election.
Some worked their pet issues into their #BidenWillNeverBePresident rants.
Other Twitterers seemed to suggest that elections should be decided on the basis of who has the most Twitter followers — though if that were the case then Barack Obama, with more than 127 million followers, would easily push Trump out of the top spot.
And of course there were those who blamed the whole mess on — could it be? — SATAN.
It doesn’t matter if you “surrender” or not, MAGAs. Joe Biden was elected president fair and square and will be sworn in on January 20.
