Starting from one month before the election, I had made a personal vow to abstain from weighing in on the election - regardless of the outcome. Oh sure, I took potshots and anti-maskers and COVID-deniers, but for the most part I tried to say nothing about the actual election. However, in light of the anarchy that took place today in Washington DC, I think it's time to break my silence. And with that in mind, here goes:
Dear President Trump,
It's time for you to go. There was an election - and you lost. You filed protests - and you lost. You were given your days in court - and you lost.
You were given every opportunity to present concrete evidence to back your claims that the election was a fraud - and you have failed to do so.
You have spent several weeks fanning the flames of conspiracy theories that have ALL been debunked by multiple sources from both sides of the aisle, and now your reckless hubris has embarrassed our nation and endangered the lives of thousands of its citizens.
And so, I say again - just go.
It's over. You lost.
Please pull your head out of wherever it's been buried these past few weeks and go. And go quickly, before anyone else gets hurt.
