And now we are transported to the alternate reality where Stacey Abrams believes she won last year’s Georgia gubernatorial election, even though she lost.
She believes the — get this — “success” she had in that election positions her to run for president.
"I think the success I had in our election… positions me to be just as capable of becoming the President of the United States as anyone running. My responsibility though, is to make sure I’m running for the right reasons and at the right time." — @staceyabrams on a 2020 run pic.twitter.com/8ZZq9wW0v2

Abrams was on CBS to promote her post-election memoir (yes, memoir) “Lead from the Outside.”
That’s an appropriate name given that her commentary about her election loss has been outside the reality of the actual vote count.

Did Webster's change the definition of "success" to "loss?" https://t.co/plhomrmecK

Wonder if we could come up with a campaign slogan for the Abrams / O’Rourke ticket.
Her memoir will be called “All of the glory of winning and none of the responsibility of governing” https://t.co/GvNxW0pX5S

Pretty soon Democrats are going to start falsely claiming that the Mueller report was terrible for Trump and is grounds for impeachment.
