The rallies are also loosely aimed at the same falsehood that Trump has worked to promote since his ouster: that he didn’t lose last year. At a large retirement community in Florida early last month, Gaetz and Greene encouraged the audience to recognize Trump as the legitimate president, which he isn’t. Another stop on their slapdash tour landed them in Arizona to promote the bizarre and tainted election review effort being conducted on behalf of some Republicans in the state. It’s not just that they’re leveraging Trump’s style; they’re leveraging the new energy of the Trump movement, energy centered on wild and obviously untrue claims about the election.

He is still a danger to America.
