It’s hard to say who is the biggest proponent of spreading Donald Trump’s Big Lie that he didn’t lose the 2024 as he fraudulently likes to claim.
Rudy Giuliani is certainly one of the contenders. He had his law license revoked in New York and District of Columbia for knowingly spreading Trump’s falsehoods. He’s also subject of a billion-dollar defamation lawsuit for baselessly claiming Dominion voting machines changed votes from Trump to Joe Biden.
There’s also Ted Cruz to consider. Cruz is one of Trump’s most vocal supporters in spreading lies about the 2020 election. Ironically Cruz was accused of voter fraud himself by Trump, just before he called Cruz’s wife ugly and his dad a criminal.
Disgraced conspiracy theorist attorney John Eastman makes a strong case for himself. Eastman is facing possible disbarment by the State Bar of California and is under investigation by the House Select Committee for his role brainstorming Trump’s plan to subvert the results of the 2020 election and install himself as a would-be dictator. Despite being under investigation, he has continued to campaign for the Wisconsin legislature to decertify Biden’s win in hopes that Trump will magically be put in office – 15 months into Biden’s first term.
And you can’t forget about Ginni Thomas, rightwing nutjob wife of ethically-challenged Supreme Court Judge and accused sex offender Clarence Thomas. Thanks to the lunatic text messages she sent to Chief of Staff Mike Meadows, we now know she used her position as wife of a Supreme Court judge to gain access to Trump’s inner circle and spread QAnon conspiracy theories and encourage illegal means for Trump to stay in power.
But when it comes down to it, nobody loves Trump in that special ass-kissing way, sausage swallowing way that he craves so much as MyPillow CEO and former crack-addict Mike Lindell. Lindell has spent millions of dollars trying to convince people that the 2020 election was stolen from Trump.
Beyond that, he has lost even more millions of dollars in potential sales because stores like Costco, Kohls, Bed Bath and Beyond, Mattress Firm, Fingerhut, and Dollar General have stopped carrying his products because they don’t want to be associated with his kind of crazy. He too is facing billion-dollar lawsuits by Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic – another voting system he slandered.
In fact, Lindell has a very specific set of skills that make him immensely valuable to Trump: he’s gullible enough to believe Trump’s lies without question and he is willing to spend millions of dollars on his idol’s whims. Oh yeah, and he doesn’t mind breaking the law to feed Trump’s ego. That’s pretty much ideal in Trump’s book.
Remember when bumbling fool Lindell went to visit Trump in the White House after he lost the 2020 election? Photographers captured proof Lindell was carrying a book on how to invoke martial law – one of the plots Trump and his enablers considered to try to remain in power after losing the election by 7 million votes. That’s the dedication to insanity that makes Lindell very attractive to Trump.
Mike Pence filled the duties of being Trump’s vice president almost exactly how Trump wanted. He stayed in the background, allowing Trump to be in the spotlight, and he backed almost everything that Trump said or did.
The only grievance that Trump had with Pence, is that he wouldn’t break the law to try to illegally overturn the results of the 2020 election. However, this is a pretty big failure in Trump’s book. Afterall, he did have his followers attack the Capitol, erect gallows, and try to hang his VP.
Now with Trump teasing a 2024 run for the White House, it appears he’ll need a new running mate. Pence is already campaigning for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination instead of Trump.
Mike Lindell may just be the ideal running mate for the world’s worst businessman. He’s stupid enough to do and say whatever Trump says without question. With Lindell in the VP spot, Trump would have someone to take the fall for all his criminal activities. And that’s all Trump wants at the end of the day – to be able to say and do whatever he wants with someone else there to take the blame and foot the bill.
Of course, Trump is only hinting at running in 2024 so he can bilk his naïve, hate-filled followers out of their money in the form of campaign contributions. He uses the money for his living expenses and other frivolities. He won’t actually run for president again. He lost the popular vote by millions in both elections he participated in. His ego can’t take being a three-time loser.
So, Trump will continue to hold rallies and sell Trump teddy bears and Trump membership cards. He’ll beg for donations, saying he needs the money so he can protect America from such atrocities as law enforcement, social workers, firefighters, teachers, food stamps, Medicaid, Social Security, freedom of the press, and housing assistance. But when it comes down to it, he won’t actually run.
While Trump is carrying on his fictitious third attempt at the White House, why not have Lindell along for the ride? Trump will still be the dumbest one on the ticket, but not by much. It’ll be like another Dumb and Dumber sequel.
Trump Lindell 2024 – the ring of stupidity is in the air.
Peace. Love. Trust.
