It’s a tense moment in American politics.
Democrat Joe Biden won the presidential election, and it wasn’t especially close. Yet President Trump has not only refused to concede the election. He has repeatedly insisted, without evidence, that he won in a landslide that was denied to him and his supporters by systematic voter fraud. It would be one thing if these were the delusional rantings of a lone sociopath. When the village idiot proclaims himself to be Napoleon Bonaparte and no one recognizes him as such, he’s just a lunatic. But when a large faction of the village affirms that he is in fact a Corsican general, things get more complicated.
