President Trump has never been one to mute himself, or make moot points. He’s bombastic, to say the least, and obtusely ferocious at times. He’s like ballon that continues to fill up the room, pushing Americans ever further into their corners, likely in preparation for the coming fight against the Deep State.
But this conviction can, at times, be more akin to a cacophony. It’s chaos every now and again, and it keeps the President’s opponents on their toes.
This week was no exception, after the President took to Twitter to complain about a nasty electoral nuisance out in the Nevada desert.
President Trump on Monday morning threatened legal action over a bill passed by the Nevada legislature to send mail-in ballots to all voters ahead of the Nov. 3 presidential election.
The legislature on Sunday pushed through the bill despite objections from Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske, the only statewide Republican elected official, on a party-line vote. It would give Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak the power to command the secretary of state to adjust election procedures during a state of emergency.
The bill also expands who can turn in ballots, a provision many Republicans in the state said could open the door for ballot harvesting.
“In an illegal late night coup, Nevada’s clubhouse Governor made it impossible for Republicans to win the state,” Trump said in a tweet Monday. “Post Office could never handle the Traffic of Mail-In Votes without preparation. Using Covid to steal the state. See you in Court!”
This is just the latest in a long line of attacks that President Trump has leveled at the idea of mail-in voting, as the 2020 election seems destined to be impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
