In the Aug. 1 editorial "Tweet about delaying vote inappropriate," the lede completely and utterly missed the more serious half of the story. I'm sure every election administrator cringed when they read Trump's follow-up tweet, "Must know Election results on the night of the Election, not days, months, or even years later!"


The first tweet got the spotlight, but the latter casts even more doubt on U.S. elections.


His first tweet was the "fake," a headline that can be simplistically tagged as Trump being Trump, saying two contradictory things at once: mail-in bad, but absentee ballots are good; however the mechanics of both are basically the same. His second tweet was the knockout punch of his survival strategy: You should take only the results of election night as serious, and anything counted after that can be discounted.


Congress certifies the electors Jan. 6, 2021. This is Trump's way of, once again, pretending the law doesn't exist and rallying his base to ignore existing law.


That behavior, dear editors, goes beyond "inappropriate."
