Americans got a taste last night of how gracefully Donald Trump might hand over the reins of power if he loses this election. A number of networks chose to cut off his remarks from the White House last night as Trump said that he had won the election if you count the “legal” votes. In Trump’s head, the votes legally cast by mail-in ballots by duly registered voters are “illegal.”
Trump’s remarks came as his lawyers both threatened to file and did file lawsuits attempting to stop the counting of mail-in ballots in states where the Trump campaign is contemplating a potential loss. No one in the Trump campaign has produced any evidence of fraud in the election despite Trump’s statement on Wednesday that a fraud is taking place.
Some of the threats have not been backed up with actual lawsuit filings and remain just threats. Not too many lawyers are going to be willing to put their license to practice law on the line by filing a frivolous lawsuit devoid of evidence of illegal voting. Judges have been known to sanction and fine lawyers over such actions.
