Frustrated Trump met with Pence before holiday break

Source: CNN

Hours before President Donald Trump retweeted a message for his vice president to "act" in stopping the ratification of the Electoral College, he met for more than an hour in the Oval Office with Mike Pence, whom he has complained recently isn't doing enough to support his bid to overturn the election.

...snip...

Sources say Trump in recent days has brought the matter up to the vice president and has been "confused" as to why Pence can't overturn the results of the election on January 6.

Pence and White House aides have tried to explain to him that his role is more of a formality and he cannot unilaterally reject the Electoral College votes.

2. That's pretty much to be expected when he uses OAN and NewsMax as his sole advisors.

If he listened to anyone but the clown-car full of deplorables that tell him what he wants to hear, he *might* get a slight glimmer of reality in the soured oatmeal in his skull that passes for a brain. Instead he's on a constant diet of conspiracy theories and flawed legal theories and he's trying to push these out to the rest of his administration, no matter how much they try to push back.

It's not going to end well for him, and it couldn't happen to a nicer guy. I have zero sympathy for him, his family members, and all his other enablers.

6. Four fucking years of the machinery of government having to deal with a toddler in charge

There has been NO other president in history whose headlines are about "complaining", "confused", "frustrated" or to whom the aides "have tried to explain". Even when Reagan had early signs of dementia, he wasn't whining like a 3 year old. At least Reagan had a full life of being an adult before his decline. Trump has never got there. And over 70 million fuckers thought it was OK to give him another 4 years!

Fuck.

8. Trump, "... [Pence] isn't doing enough to support his bid to overturn the election"

Let that sink in all you alt-right, Freeper, lurkers.

Your President wants to over turn a clean, fair, and legal, election.

.... the election on January 6."

Good God in Butter is Trump stupid. Pence can't overturn the results of the election because that would
be illegal. End of story.
