Trump Commits Voter Fraud!
From the Department of Irony Department, a woman in Iowa has been arrested for voter fraud. She's a Trumpster!
You see how the mere hint of "rigged elections" can cause people to do ridiculous things? Take it from us — we Democrats are not impersonating people to vote multiple times, nor are we busing illegal immigrants to the polls. And Chicago legend notwithstanding, we are not recruiting people to show up to vote bearing the IDs of dead people.
But Donald Trump hammers the idea of rampant voter fraud, and this is what happens. Someone commits it! In his name! "I wasn't planning on doing it twice," the Trumpster said. "It was spur of the moment."
This is just the latest example of the chaos that Trump's lack of respect for the process can wreak. It ranks right up there with Trump's exultant bleatings about how the James Comey letter on the Weiner-Abedin emails is evidence of total, unequivocal Hillary criminality. WHUT?
Then again, that's okay. Let Trump and the Republicans overplay their hand — they're so good at it. But at the same time, we cats find it deeply disturbing that anyone would vote for a guy who has such contempt for the rule of law and for How Things Are Done.
The President — or a candidate for President — does not pronounce innocence or guilt. Not in America. Due process does that. That's why lynching is a no-no, right? But then, we don't expect Trump to understand that.
We do expect thoughtful voters to figure it out, though. And if they don't — hoo boy, the country's in trouble. We cats HISS.
