The presidential election went perfectly, there was no fraud and Joe Biden won. So much for reality. Millions of votes in favor of Donald Trump have been eluded, justice is complicit, the outgoing president should have been reelected, and by and large. So much for the newsletter that has been running for several days in the rabbit hole, the rabbit hole, of the White House.
That the truth floats in a gaseous state is nothing new. The mandate of 45e President had started on January 21, 2017 with the assertion by his first spokesperson, Sean Spicer, that the crowd that came to attend his induction was the largest in the history of the swearing-in ceremony. The fourth spokesperson, Kayleigh McEnany, said she counted more than a million Trumpists in the streets of Washington, Saturday, November 14, and she also has a bridge for sale in Brooklyn at a price that will amaze you.
Yet there comes a moment when reality takes revenge with the implacability of a rising tide. Here we are. According to journalist Bob Woodward, the president’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner himself compared the White House universe to the 45e president to that of Alice by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, aka Lewis Carroll. Wanting to make sense of what didn’t have much, Jared Kushner took refuge behind an aphorism of Chester’s cat crossed by the heroine, according to which “If you don’t know where you are going, any path will take you there”.
The image of the rabbit hole in which Alice falls within the space of the mandate decided by its creator fits perfectly with the sequence which opened when Joe Biden was declared the winner on November 7. Donald Trump was playing golf at his club in Virginia. Imagine. He was bending down to retrieve the ball at the fifth hole when the news was broke, and he too fell into that uncertain vagueness and confusion. Since then, he refuses to recognize defeat.
The president is not the only one trapped. One of his loyal supporters who officiates on the conservative channel Fox News Pete Hegseth was presenting the Trumpist March in Washington on Saturday morning when he said the following: “Election officials did not report any irregularities that would affect the outcome of the vote, it was on the teleprompter, I read it but I don’t know if I agree with that, it happens sometimes. “ And the demonstrators on Saturday think no less.
