Trump’s most dangerous ideas always start as ‘jokes’

At Tuesday’s State Department briefing, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo refused to acknowledge Joe Biden’s election victory, a not uncommon position among Republican lawmakers and officials right now. Yet, when asked about the Trump team’s delay in aiding a smooth transition to a Biden administration, Pompeo went even further, coyly responding, “There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration.” The line was greeted with stunned silence by the gathered reporters but quickly elicited fiery reactions on social media.

On Twitter, a few voices contended that Pompeo had been merely joking, pointing out the sly smirk on Pompeo’s face as he spoke, as if that should be reassuring.
