Five full days and nights of silence from Donald Trump. The man who wants to hear his own voice more than anyone alive has not allowed you to hear his voice for five days and nights for the first time in the history of his political career.
Silence. The silence is the concession speech. The concession was never going to be words. Not from Donald Trump. The silence is the concession speech.
Take it for the gift that it is. Five full days and nights of your life without the sound of that voice. . . .
[D]on't be scared by Donald Trump's silence. It is the silence of a terrified man who is desperately trying to raise money online, on the lie that he has not yet lost the presidential election.
It is the silence of a man constantly sending out the neediest emails in political history, with pathetic subject lines like "I need you right now", all to trick gullible people out of their money.
It is the silence of a man who is terrified of what his life will become on January 20. He will spend next year as a defendant in important civil lawsuits against him and possibly as a criminal defendant in New York State.
