Mark Steyn, while appearing on Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, recently likened the left’s accusation that Trump stole the 2016 presidential election to the “ducking chair” of olden day witchfinders, noting that the left believes the very fact Trump won the election is ipso facto proof he stole it.
The witchfinders’ gig went something like this: Strap a suspected conjurer into a chair and submerge her underwater for two minutes. If she happens to be alive when you pull her out, she must be a witch…and should then be burned. If, on the other hand, she is dead, she’s innocent. However, she’s also dead, which is not a problem for the witchfinders, but is inconvenient for the previously suspected—but now posthumously exonerated—pseudo sorcerer.
Similarly, Democrats now aver that the only way Trump can prove he isn’t cheating is by losing (the next election). If they can get away with this charade, they are the enchanters.
