Place your bets! — Trump argues he couldn’t have lost election because bookies had him winning

One would think that after bankrupting his casinos multiple times, Donald Trump would have soured on gambling.


One of his latest tweets, however, demonstrates that the lame-duck loser of a president still places an enormous amount of faith in the parimutuel oddsmakers who determine the betting line for casinos, sporting events, racetracks, and even political races.

Using the “so-called ‘bookies'”  — who determine their payout percentages by the number of bets placed on a given candidate — as the arbiter of election odds rather than the dedicated political pollsters who actually survey prospective voters without a financial interest in the outcome about their intentions shows just how low Trump is stooping to find some excuse, any excuse, to cast doubts on the results of an election that everyone except himself and those who fear his rapidly receding retaliatory powers have accepted as settled.

As one would expect, Trump’s tweet attracted an avalanche of derision on his favorite social media platform.

At this point, Trump is willing to say or do anything to convince people that he didn’t really lose so badly to Joe Biden.

What are the odds, one might ask, that Americans will tire of his ceaseless pity-party of denial and lies anytime soon?

One doesn’t need a “so-called ‘bookie'” to figure out that the time to place that bet is long past.
