Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, August 02, 2020

Paul Wallis: The Trump/GOP war against the US Postal Service has taken on an element of pettiness and stupidity. The very much underfunded USPS has had its overtime eliminated, and other services trashed by selective political fraud and fakery on a massive scale.

More from the op-ed...

Trump hasn't even been officially nominated as a candidate yet. (Or has he? It's not like anyone's said otherwise, but what's the official standing of his nomination?In recent news/Tweets, he has said that:

Postal votes will result in electoral fraud and corruption. Trump has voted by mail on several occasions.

"Lead to the end of our great Republican party." (Of which he, previously a Democrat, wasn't even a member until 2016.)

"Children will steal the mail." If so - Why has this never even been an issue for either party before? ... Or are America's children so presumably corrupt that this is their idea of fun? Or is the GOP now fearlessly defending America against its own children, too?

The pandemic is one of the reasons for the vast increase in applications for postal votes, which has put a huge strain on the obviously underfunded USPS. Postmaster Geeral and major Trump donor Louis DeJoy (an apt name) recently abolished overtime for couriers and postal deliveries to "increase efficiency and reduce costs".

Increased efficiency is apparently a synonym for slower deliveries at the expense of the time and patience of recipients, and reduced costs somehow mean delayed delivery is more cost-efficient for recipients. It would seem the idea of hiring more people to manage the electoral votes isn't being considered, either.
Um, idiots...

The fact that mail ballots will also include Republican voters apparently hasn't occurred to Mensa's illegitimate offspring in Washington.

The fact that representatives and senators need those votes also obviously isn't an issue...

What seems to be the real issue, in my eyes, is that Pres Trump is looking for ways to, and is actively trying to, delegitimatize the Election.

He currently does like what he currently sees as a likely outcome in November so, like other people and things that show him in a bad light,he wants to destroy it.

Expecting the Republic to survive Trump is like expecting gun makers to make a gun you can't shoot yourself in the head with.
