Grifter’s gonna grift

David Allen Green makes a good point about the rationality of Trump’s refusal to concede that he has lost the election.

Of course, any decent person would have conceded in order to allow the incoming administration to start preparing for power and Trump’s refusal to do so is both dangerous and deeply undemocratic.

Trump, of course, is not a decent person and right now he has a thing — power — and sees no advantage in giving it up. Why would he? We all know that he’s only in it for himself and he has nothing to gain from stepping aside and everything to lose.

Trump’s going to milk the White House for as long as he can get away with it.
