Basically, he's arguing that the Democrats won by doing the thing they've done for decades: appealing to well-educated and urban voters.
But, according to him, those well-educated voters are the "less-informed people." Spoken by someone who must really believe his defeat "defies logic."

It's all a scam. They know their platform is toxic to suburban women and young, educated adults. They can't admit they are wrong so the only other tactic is to fling shit and incite the base.

Maybe if they weren’t running such an extreme right candidate/platform and instead tried a more moderate position that appealed to real Americans instead of only their chosen minority this wouldn’t have happened

Yeh, but it's been a mostly winning strategy since Gingrich, at least. White culture war wedge issues & FUD. Tell them they're being attacked!

Yup, pretty much the only reason why Gov. Kemp in Georgia is picking a woman against Trump’s wishes to fill the vacated Senate seat.

Oh he gets that. That's why he's saying that those people shouldn't be allowed to vote.
The problem wasn't that the People of Kenticky rejected his actions or his policies, the problem was that a nebulous leftist conspiracy encouraged people to exercise their Constitutional right to vote. Because that's leftist now apparently.

Just wait, they are eventually going to start claiming that the "wants the D" slang has brainwashed people into voting Democrat.

Irony of all ironies story today Trump is about to cut people off the food stamp program.

Meanwhile he's ok creating welfare for farmers, wasting tax $s investigating debunked conspiracy theories and breaking the bank on golf trips.

But they'll still vote for them. Can't fix stupid

I'm not sure I could afford anything that nice. I'm stuck here in an area where they can't keep the power on and people shit on the sidewalk. You first world guys have it made.

When was the last time you found a turd on your sidewalk, anyway? Probably never.

To be honest, I have to drive about 30 miles to see that. Around here people still have some small sense of sanitation and hygiene. The only fellow I know of that tried to relieve himself in public had a piss in the park about half a block away. Unfortunately there were kids nearby, he was arrested for exposing himself in front of children and ended up on the sex offenders list. He was JAR, but I never felt his actions were a danger to anyone.
