Can We Please Stop Calling Them ‘Legal Challenges’?

I think we should stop using the term “Legal Challenges” to describe whatever it is these fanatical ReTrumplicans are pretending to do vis-a-vis the 2020 presidential election.

These are not “legal challenges”. They are, rather, “litigious octopus-inkelry”, or perhaps, “revenge against all the butthurt 2016 Clinton supporters who refused to let Trump be King”, or maybe, “a systematic attempt to manufacture evidence that everybody is out to destroy Trump — even the judges!”

But they’re not proper “legal challenges”, that’s for sure. I think we should stop calling them that.
