'Stop The Stupid': GOP Lawmaker Pleads With Trump To Drop Election Lies

A Republican House member from Michigan launched his own hashtag trend Sunday, pleading with President Donald Trump to “stop the stupid” and drop his bogus attempts to overturn the election. “Oh my God," Rep. Paul Mitchell (R-Mich.) tweeted about Trump’s latest false allegations, similar to the ones he’s been repeating without evidence since he lost to President-elect Joe Biden. “Please for the sake of our Nation please drop these argument without evidence of factual basis,” Mitchell wrote. Oh my God. .@realDonaldTrump Please for the sake of our Nation please drop these arguments without evidence or factual basis. #stopthestupid https://t.co/IMMImXrckV— Rep. Paul Mitchell (@RepPaulMitchell) November 30, 2020 Mitchell was responding to Trump’s Sunday evening tweet: “We have some big things happening in our various litigations on the Election hoax,” Trump wrote, byvoeging: “Everybody knows it was Rigged.” Mitchell earlier this month urged Trump acknowledge his loss and “deal with it” — for the “good of the nation.” As with nearly everything Trump now tweets about the election, Twitter marked his new claim as “disputed.” Trump and his campaign have lost dozens of lawsuits challenging election results. A perturbed federal judge in Philadelphia — appointed by the president — last week slapped down one of the suits as “without merit” or evidence. Many responding to Mitchell on Twitter praised his comment to Trump. He also got a shout-out from attorney George Conway, the never-Trump husband of former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway. But others considered the criticism too-little, too-late. Love this hashtag from a Republican member of Congress. #stopthestupid, indeed. https://t.co/Y3RRRdXzWZ— George Conway (@gtconway3d) November 30, 2020 so critical to have a rational Republican party for the health of the nation.
