Even though he’s vowed not to concede the 2020 election to Joe Biden, President Donald Trump must have a sneaking feeling that he’s becoming more and more irrelevant with each passing hour.
For example, there was once a time when Trump could call anyone he wanted and be assured they would either answer or call him back in prompt fashion.
Now, however, Jon Cooper, former Majority Leader of the Suffolk County (NY) legislature, says sources are telling him that almost no one is returning the president’s calls:
Source at a major cable news network who works with the White House: “Trump, who prides himself as a marketing genius, can’t get others to call the media and reinforce false claims of the election being stolen. Most of Trump’s GOP friends are not returning his phone calls.”

Also, fewer and fewer Republicans are going on right-wing media to defend Trump and join him in his calls to stop counting votes in the six states where the election hasn’t yet been called.
Imagine it: You were once the most powerful man in the world, and now people are dodging you when you try to call and commiserate with them. That must be incredibly emasculating.
Here’s some of the reactions to Cooper’s tweet, with many noting that the GOP no longer has any use for Trump because he can’t do anything for them:
They got what they needed out of him he doesn’t realize but he’s been played Mitch McConnell treat him like a puppet who is Putin‘s puppet they got him to roll back everything on the environment regulations now they don’t need him for anything he doesn’t realize he’s been played

They’ve milked out their golden cow and no longer have any use for him. Goes to show you how easily he can get manipulated into thinking these people actually cared for him. Oh well. 🤦🏽♀️

They’re only his friend when he has the power to benefit them. Those days are over. Republicans in his administration are preparing for inevitable loss of election, are scrambling looking for jobs.

They like Presidents who don’t lose elections.

We can stop calling Trump “president” now and refer to him by his real title: A failed, one-term impeached little man who may well be headed to prison.
