Democrats never learn although a few of them have weighed in on the banning of Trump from Colorado and Maine. These few are not happy with these attempts that up to now was reserved for third world counties. The problem for the Democrats is that whatever they do, the Republicans do also. As proof og that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis says that Florida is considering removing Joe Biden from the ballot. Do unto others………
Maine and Colorado has removed President Trump from the ballot and now red states are looking to ban Joe Biden. In total five states so far are looking into the possible removal of Biden. This may be tit for tat but it could also be a teaching experience for the Democrats. They need to learn that election fixing can come back and bite them where the sun don’t shine. All of this manuever1ing is strengthening the resolve of Trump supporters and will assure that they intend to vote.
DeSantis told reporters in Cumming, Iowa:
“To have one election official decide that somebody is guilty of, quote, ‘insurrection,’ when there has not been a criminal conviction of anybody, much less the candidate himself, that opens up Pandora’s box.”
Gov. DeSantis said he is curious if the state could "make a credible case" against Biden "because of the invasion of 8 million [migrants]," citing the ongoing border crisis. https://t.co/RxfxTZFY3d

“Whatever the rules are applied to us, we’re going to fight back and apply the rules the other way. I do think the U.S. Supreme Court is going to have to take the case.”
CNN analyst S.E. Cupp said:
“The whole of the Republican Party right now is animated by a politics of revenge … The punitiveness, the punishment, the retribution is what is leading so much of Republican policy and rhetoric.”
For those who aren’t aware of the fact, S.E. Cupp used to pretend she was a conservative, but she doesn’t pretend anymore.
After Maine’s Secretary of State took action to remove former President Donald Trump from that state’s ballot over the Jan. 6, 2021 riots at the United States Capitol, DeSantis noted Florida is exploring if it can strike Biden from its primary ballot over his response to the migration crisis along the southern border of the United States, the Washington Examiner reported.
Missouri’s Secretary of State, Jay Ashcroft, also said Friday his state is considering removing Biden from the ballot, NBC News reported.
“What has happened in Colorado & Maine is disgraceful & undermines our republic,” Ashcroft posted on X (formerly Twitter). “While I expect the Supreme Court to overturn this, if not, Secretaries of State will step in & ensure the new legal standard for @realDonaldTrump applies equally to @JoeBiden!”
Ashcroft said that if Democratic states plan to remove Trump, “you bet you’re going to see the same thing happening from Republican states. And it’s not good.”

Although DeSantis said that he was against “tit-for-tat” political reactions, he said he was also against “fighting with one hand tied behind your back” after Trump was removed from the Colorado and Maine primary ballots, the Washington Examiner reported.
