This is my response to your staff’s email to me. Might I suggest that when they cut and paste a response to use the same size font so it doesn’t look like they are cutting and pasting.
1. “I know that many of my constituents in South Carolina are concerned about the validity of our most recent election.”
Are you also aware that many of your constituents in South Carolina are concerned about the lies the former guy continues to fabricate about how the election was “stolen” from him without providing one shred of evidence? What evidence have you seen? There are also many of your constituents that were horrified by his call to “fight like hell” to “the unwashed” (his description of his base) against our constitution and democracy on January 6th? Have you spoken out against Trump and the role he played in this attempted and deadly uprising? Ask the families of the four DC police officers who responded to the US Capitol insurrection that have since taken their own lives. Ask those families who they blame for that horrible day.
2. “Any candidate in an election can challenge the results through legal processes. Our former President had every right to pursue legal avenues to investigate and challenge the results of the election.”
You are right and he did, and he lost repeatedly in courts across this country and rather than accepting his loss, leading a peaceful transition, and attending the inauguration of President Joe Biden like a grown-up he acted like a 3-year-old, threw a temper tantrum, and encouraged “the unwashed” to storm the castle and take what he couldn’t let go of. You, rather than protecting the interest of your constituents and the Constitution of the United States, sat in silence, too afraid to speak-up because “the unwashed” voted for you and you hope they will vote for you again.
3. “I believe that there is no constitutionally viable means for Congress to overturn an election where legal challenges have concluded, and states have certified their results.”
Funny, if you really believed that then why didn’t you yell it from the mountain tops on January 5th? Why didn’t you book time on Fox, Newsmax, or OANN and share your beliefs with the rest of the world? You know who would have really appreciated your perspective and your courage to make that proclamation? Mike Pence. Instead, “the unwashed” built a gallows for him in front of the Capital because their cult leader stated that “Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify. USA demands the truth!”
Read that statement. Is that what you believe? The majority spoke and the USA provided Trump with the truth, his services were no longer needed, or wanted….don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.
4. “Americans must remain united and committed to upholding the integrity of our institutions and the values they represent. Always know that I will do all that I can to address the concerns of my constituents and fellow Americans.”
“United”, “integrity”, and “values”. Those are important words. Would you say the former guy represents these words? Would you say that your defense of his actions represents these words? Make no mistake about it, your inaction is a defense of Trump’s madness. Mr. Scott, history will not be kind to the former guy, and it won’t be kind to people like yourself who had the power to shut his lunacy down. Everyday a new piece of evidence, story, observation is released that confirms the insanity of the Trump Whitehouse and we know there is more to come. It isn’t a drip, drip, it is a tidal wave. And the sad part is Trump’s recklessness continues and yours and the GOP’s silence allow it to happen.
Trump is like a third world dictator in exile planning to overthrow the government. You know, in your heart, that is a fair and factual representation of his actions and his current state of mind, with state of mind being a very subjective term. He has never cared about this country. He only cares about himself. Can you prove me wrong? Show me the evidence that Donald J. Trump made this country better in his four years in office. Show me the evidence that this country is better off because of a Donald Trump presidency. Trump won’t be satisfied until he has sucked every nickel and dime out of the pockets of “the unwashed”. Being president was all about grifting money and even in exile as a twice impeached, one term sore loser the Trump grift continues.
