Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Widespread voting fraud! I’m certain there are a couple of thousand of these over the 150,000,000 votes cast.

‘Purely outlandish stuff’: Trump’s legal machine grinds to a halt
So many lawsuits have been filed in so many state and federal courts that no one has an exact number. The campaign has lost nearly all of the cases that have been decided so far.

A Michigan lawyer for Donald Trump’s campaign filed a case in the wrong court.
Lawsuits in Arizona and Nevada were dropped.
A Georgia challenge was quickly rejected for lack of evidence.
His Pennsylvania legal team just threw in the towel.

One of many amusing incidents;
Quote:
In an earlier Pennsylvania case where Trump’s team tried to stop ballot-counting, the president’s lawyers were forced to admit that a “nonzero number of” Republican observers were allowed to witness ballot counting, contrary to false claims made outside the courtroom that no Republican observers were present.
The judge reminded Trump’s lawyers they have a “duty of candor” in court.

These people can't do anything right. The level of incompetence and lack of sense for reality is appaling. Who quarterbacks this pathetic effort? Kushner, Rudy, Sekulow?

Edit: Just saw this article on CNN to the point above. So the lead on this is passed from a person who is not a lawyer to ... Rudy Giuliani. But if Rudy wasn't in charge until now, why did he give the presser next to the dildo shop?

This is all very shining-city-on-the-hill like.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Friday apologized to viewers after a local Georgia news outlet pointed out that he had made a false claim about a dead individual illegally voting in the state.

On a Thursday evening segment of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the host claimed that someone had cast a ballot on behalf of James Blalock of Covington, Ga., who died in 2006.

However, Newton County officials said in a statement Thursday that Blalock did not vote and that the record found by the Trump campaign referred to a vote cast by Blalock’s widow, registered under his name as "Mrs. James E. Blalock, Jr."
9/10 pacifists agree that Tucker Carlson has the most punchable face in the world.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

I can only imagine the depths of the frustration you must be going through, now that Biden has won and the platform for trolls such as yourself to suck the attention in political threads will soon be removed. I wonder what you will try and focus on next when this thread is done with?

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

An interesting interchange from yesterday’s MAGA rally in DC:


“Near the Supreme Court, a line of riot police stood facing a few dozen protesters resting homemade shields on the ground as a MAGA throng chanted and churned behind them.
“F--- antifa!” they shouted in unison.
“Who’s antifa?” one Trump supporter wondered.
“I don’t know,” another responded. “But they don’t like her!””


Nevertheless, idiots on both sides.

Unconcious humour in TheHill report on the #MAGA rally supporting Trump.

Quote:
President Trump himself drove by the group in his motorcade shortly after 10 a.m. on his way to play golf.
Trump demonstrating his deep-felt emotion over this display of support.

Trump has really gone off FoxNews!
Quote:

12h
@FoxNews and the Fake News Networks aren’t showing these massive gatherings.
Instead they have their reporters standing in almost empty streets.
We now have SUPPRESSION BY THE PRESS. MAGA!

WTF are they demonstrating about? They still want the election result turned, or they were saying bye bye to Trump?

Was the post really trolling? Th cartoon makes a good point, calling out both candidates and also those who rally behind the 'lesser of two evils'. In fact, it's related to the thread, whereas your reactionary (to the poster, not to the content) post in reply is much more attention-sucking.

So what is this 'now that Biden has won and the platform for trolls such as yourself to suck the attention in political threads will soon be removed' all about?

Biden is going to cancel freedom of speech?

Biden has nothing to do with what is going on.
He won an election peacefully.
It’s not his show or his command yet.

What is going in now is still Trump’s America.

It has nothing to do with ending free speech, that is kindergarten logic. Although ironically, Trump WAS trying to kill freedom of speech by suppressing and attacking the media with his fascist and anti-democratic behaviour. But I don't expect many people who suppprted Trump throughout his presidency to engage in that level of reflection and honesty.

The point I was making is that Trumps ascendancy into mainstream politcs and constant stream of racist/fascist/bigoted/intolerant rhetoric provided a platform for people like Full Circle et al to go to town with their views, many of which would not be deemed acceptable in any civilised or intelligent company. During this election and the escalation of Trumps insanity, all of that was even further exacerbated.

Now that Biden has won, reason backed by science will to a large extent preside within whitehouse. As such, not having a President constant writing horrific things on Twitter and saying horrific things in numerous awful press conferences will largely reduce the platform and motivation for people of a similar mindset to engage in similar poisonous rhetoric.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

One of the best things about Trump losing the election is that now, soon, we will be able to ignore him.

Maybe we should all treat him the same way he's treated the pandemic... If we all just ignore him, he will just go away... like a miracle.
