Republicans play with Trump’s fire

As President Trump hunts for discrepancies in several states’ vote counts that will put him back in the White House for four more years, it is already apparent that there are discrepancies in the public case his supporters are making.

First, the lawyers arguing on behalf of Trump’s campaign under oath in court are making far more tentative claims about dead voters, banished poll watchers, and other fraudulent practices than those making their case in the court of public opinion, such as former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Second, and more importantly, Republican elected officials seem to be going through the motions in their defense of the president’s election lawsuits, almost as if they are humoring Trump, while vast swathes of the base are dead serious.
