It's more "pretend that he got locked out" or that the White House was literally stolen from him.

Trump's constant craving for attention and his narcissistic ego will never let him fade into the background.

My prediction is that we will be playing "Where is Waldo" for a few weeks and out of nowhere Trump will appear on inauguration day and start to yell bullshit to try to make Biden stutter when he makes his pledge, he is that kind of sore loser, wouldn't surprise me if instead of a letter he leave a pile of his s**t on his desk.

Well, yeah, he is shitting up the political structure by putting loyalists wherever he could. I doubt the white supremacists cockroaches will be gone come January. Trump sold them a dream, they are likely going to play their cards a bit more subtly, just to get closer to that dream. CEOs of social networks, and creators of boards like various chans, need to face their responsibilities for having allowed such ideas to poison the online communities and offering free propaganda for such toxic persons and ideas. Not even Hitler would have imagined such platforms, with so much reach

The grave will, and he's not far from it.

One thing to me is clear (let's use star wars terms), Trump is not emperor Palpatine, that would be Rupert Murdoch. Trump would merely be Darth Maul. It should be no surprise that Murdoch has ordered Trump to be a done deal, he is already looking into the future, there will be elections in four years and has no time to lose with losers. If the orange orangutan tries to challenge fox news with his own far right news network, he will be crushed in no time.

I agree, above all else americans are human beings, nobody will stand behind an extremist, a fascist. If you put the most stupid red neck to answer this question "Which is worse, a communist=equality at the price of freedom or a fascist=tyrant=no equality and no freedom?" I think they will know what to answer, even republicans. Not that most of them would be red necks, as they surely are.

Looks like Trump won a legal battle in pa concerning a small number of ballots that havent even been included in the current total.

Some Americans want a bloodline Trump dynasty. It’s not even uniquely American, some people just want to bring back the divine right of kings
They want a leader that will do everything and think for them so they don’t have to.
This is the reason why Qanon’s “just believe in the plan” is so popular among this group
It doesn’t tell you to worry about issues. It just tells you to trust in the plan

I think available evidence disagrees with that assessment.

I'm pretty sure most would reject the question as bullshit, some even for good reasons.

Who cares? None of Trump's legal challenges will affect enough votes to change the outcome. Apparently the early results of the Georgia recount shows no substantive changes.

No irregularities or significant tabulation errors emerged during the first two days of the recount, officials said Saturday.

Trump even admitted he'd lost via tweet, though he tried to walk it back. Since Milley's slapdown last week pretty much kiboshed his hopes of a military coup, electoral college chicanery seems like the last call - and there's enough trepidation from R legislatures in key states to cast that into serious doubt too.

The problem is the transition. Who gives a rat's ass whether T formally concedes or not, but his refusal to allow the transition process to proceed - including security briefings - seriously threatens Biden's ability to govern from day one.

Well not to mention it threatens national security, not that he gives a shit apparently. Electorals going rogue is what he's crossing his fingers for.

Uh... were you going for fascist is supposed to be the answer they'd give?

If so, then I'm afraid you're very, very wrong... to summarize things, they'd answer the former because they think that "no equality and no freedom" would only apply to brown and black people, not the white rednecks (who are in fact just that racist)

I'd recommend them the movie "The Man in The Iron Mask", knowing that Louis wasn't even as bad as Trump. He just didn't give a shit. Phillipe(s) are hard to find, you have do put a new born kid in prison for about 18 years behind a gruesome mask and hope he comes back a super sensible human being instead of an animal, then make him king. After that yes, you'd have a progress, not a tyrant, but the opposite at your disposal to lead you into the future. Bit improbable if you ask me, though.

Less rather than more. More good reasons tend to support the question.

In that case, I very, very wrongly overestimated the capacity of human stupidity and overal shitbrain. Happens.


I heard the best stand up comedy in my life yesterday, it was the 1st time I nearly died laughing, it simply turned my vision dark from too much laughing, so much that I actually panicked lol! It was made by one of my countrymen and one of those jokes was: "You can't mock a man who believes, right? Because a man that's sure of something - argues with you, a man that believes in something - kills you!" In context it was very funny, not even top 10 jokes (that's how good it was) but top 1 truth. Belief is for a shitbrain more viable than fact.


PS: I absolutely loved Gabriel Byrne in the role of older D'Artagnan (The Man in the Iron Mask). The torment he had to endure at every turn, being forced to betray and fight either his heart/king/son or his lifelong friends was perfectly grafted on his face! There was never a better musketeer 'til then or since! The best role of his career as much as I'm concerned, the rest of the movie was ok, but when he was in play looking interested in someone or something, I felt my ballz cringe! lol When I rewatch the movie, that's what I'm looking for, seeing him play that role again.

On the national shame front, Georgia's Republican SoS says he and his wife have received death threats and that elected R officials including Lindsey Graham have been pressuring him to rig the recount for Trump.

How ironic that the party claiming a stolen election is now trying to steal the election. Hope this is investigated.
