“You can’t fondle the truth!”
I'm hoping that diehard Trumpers can honestly confront the question rather than desperately contrive diversions from it, irrationally lashing out at all those demonic forces they see everywhere. If they are true believers, let's accept the sniveling as a given, and cordially enjoin the devotees to proclaim their unshakable faith.
Consider the irrefutable record:
In 2016, Trump lost the popular vote by nearly 2.9 million, and claimed with no evidence that 3-5 million illegal votes were mysteriously all cast against him. He won the electoral college with 306 votes and call it a “Landslide!” When asked for evidence for his fake claim concerning the millions of clandestine bad people, he brayed that there would be “major investigation!”:
Trump repeated his lie during his first week in office, telling Congressional leaders in a 23 January meeting that “millions of unauthorized immigrants had robbed him of a popular vote majority!”
I will be asking for a major investigation into

Of course, there wasn’t any. Facts wreak havoc with the best of lies.
(File under Trump’s investigators looking into President Obama’s birth certificate in Hawaii.)
In 2020, Trump lost the popular vote by over 7 million votes, and claimed that he won in a “Landslide!” (See Trump’s previous reference to “Landslide!” - 306 electoral votes, such as President Biden received in 2020.)
In 2020, rather than pretending that 3-5 nefarious balloters had all been very, very mean to him, the Loser's paranoidal approach to democracy implicates Republican governors, Republican attorneys general, Republican secretaries of state, Republican auditors, and Republican judges who all dismissed frivolous challenges across America.
In the vast, pervasive caper, not a single suspect has yet been identified. (Those Hawaiian investigators may have to be redeployed.)
Rather than wee-wee up his goons…
… why not find the testicular fortitude to accept reality, democracy, and the obvious?
