Can’t have it both ways

The brilliant Ed Luce on the damage Trump is doing to American democracy:

“The limits to what Mr Trump can do lie not within himself but in the reactions of other people. So far, too many elected Republicans have acquiesced with the fraudulent postal ballot line, which makes no logical sense. The Republican party gained or held seats in many of the swing states that are in question. Many Republicans celebrating their wins are thus simultaneously questioning the ballots that pushed them over the finishing line. They cannot have it both ways.”

I disagree with Ed on that last point. The Republicans have shown us, time and time again, they can very much have it both ways. That’s what makes this whole farce so very alarming.
