In between spouting various fairy tales about election fraud, he got off some good lines.

So look. All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have because we won the state.
<snip>
So what are we going to do here folks? I only need 11,000 votes. Fellas, I need 11,000 votes. Give me a break.
<snip>
And everyone's going to look very good if the truth comes out. It's OK. It takes a little while but let the truth come out. And the real truth is I won by 400,000 votes. At least. That's the real truth.

For some reason, the following anecdote comes to mind:

Once upon a time, long long ago, I was reading a book about sourdough, and encountered a term for sourdough "starter" that electified me. That word was barm. My mind practically shouted, "So, that's where the word barmy comes from!"

I think Trump is going for the insanity plea at his upcoming trials. All this ridiculous current refusal to accept reality lays down the background work.

I'm waiting for Trump to resign (or for his own party to remove him from office) so that Pence can pardon him before inauguration day. =

Jason Miller doesn’t like being called out for allegedly being a deadbeat dad. The longtime Trump adviser and chief campaign strategist tried to run interference for his boss on Sunday, claiming that The Washington Post article on President Trump’s now-infamous phone call—in which he asked Georgia’s top elections official to “find” votes to win him the state—was deceptively edited. In response, CNN anchor Jake Tapper tweeted out, “The full call is here and while I have your attention pay your child support.

Default Trump: The All-Time Loser

I have always loved this song, It seems especially appropriate just now.
If you are unfamiliar with the song, be aware that there is a long intro with a great piano-guitar duet. The words are devastating.
Quote:
In the shuffling madness
Of the locomotive breath,
Runs the all-time loser,
Headlong to his death
He feels the piston scraping
Steam breaking on his brow
Old Charlie stole the handle and
The train it won't stop going
No way to slow down

He sees his children jumping off
At stations, one by one
His woman and his best friend
In bed and having fun
He's crawling down the corridor
On his hands and knees
Old Charlie stole the handle and
The train it won't stop going
No way to slow down

He hears the silence howling
Catches angels as they fall
And the all-time winner
Has got him by the balls
He picks up Gideons Bible
Open at page one
I think God He stole the handle and
The train won't stop going
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down

Trump has what he wanted, protesters attacking the US Capitol building to prevent certification of Biden. At least Fox News is condemning it, but Trump is not. I'm not certain where Newsmax and OAN stand because I won't watch them.
