Don’t you dare move on from 2020

He was several days late to the party, but it appears the former president has finally caught wind of some comments Mark Zuckerberg made during a Joe Rogan podcast that had conservatives up in arms last week.

Essentially, Zuckerberg told Rogan during an episode of his podcast last week that the FBI reached out to Facebook in the days leading up to the 2020 election and warned company executives that they should be on the lookout for “Russian propaganda.” and be “vigilant” about dealing with it.

Zuckerberg said federal agents did not identify Hunter Biden laptop stories shared on the platform as a source of disinformation, but said the company made a decision to limit the scope of a New York Post article on the computer. laptop while the company reviewed it. fact checkers

Trump and other conservatives, of course, have taken that small step to limit disinformation on the platform as undeniable evidence that the FBI tried to boost President Joe Biden’s campaign, using the news as a kind of justification to feign outrage and present a new argument. that the 2020 election was somehow stolen from him, which it was not. Trump followed a predictable path once he caught wind of Zuckerberg’s smooth comments, posting a long and unhinged statement on Truth Social. But this time he also called for the US to somehow, somehow, hold a new election “immediately!”

“So it now appears, conclusively, that the FBI BURIED THE HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY BEFORE THE ELECTION knowing that had they not done so, ‘Trump would have easily won the 2020 Presidential Election,’” he wrote. “This is massive ELECTION FRAUD AND INTERFERENCE on a level never before seen in our country. REMEDY: Declare the rightful winner or, and this would be the minimal solution, declare Election 2020 irreparably compromised and have a new Election, immediately!”

As Mo Brooks learned the hard way, Trump is completely uninterested in moving on to 2024 if he can still find new ways to shout about 2020. Perhaps that’s part of why he has yet to announce his long-awaited presidential bid: moving on is synonymous with admitting the defeat.
