I was dumfounded to learn of one today who I worked with when he and I were part of the Scott Walker administration. I know he’s a staunch conservative. He also has, as I told him, temporarily lost his mind.
Earlier today he went on FB to proclaim:
Folks this is over. Biden is the President-Elect. WI and MI have flipped blue and the numbers simply aren’t there for Trump to overcome Biden’s lead in AZ and NV. Like in 2016 when Trump won, this was a fair election with only legal ballots counted. This is true no matter who tries to sell you that it is not. One thing that makes America truly amazing is the peaceful transition of power after the change in Presidency. In 2016, we saw a respectful President Obama reach out to President-Elect Trump to continue this tradition. Let us hope the President Trump will follow suit.
What’s that old expression: gag me with a spoon. He went on.
What I voted for was bringing decency and leadership back to the White House. Compare what Trump said last night to what Biden said a few hours ago. Trump continued to be a divisive, petulant child. Biden spoke of one country, being President for all Americans, etc.
I had to chime in.
You think Biden is decent? A leader? Very disappointing.
And the final comment my friend made that is beyond preposterous:
Compared to Trump he (Biden) is MLK and Reagan combined. Bar is not high to be more decent and more of a leader than Trump.
I’m not making that up.
Not easy reading a friend and former colleague melt into a ball of jelly.
