I wonder how strong the statistical correlation is between Trumpanzees and Flat Earthers. That would be interesting.
Did he? I'll believe that after a full autopsy of Trump, Ooops, I mean the election has been performed.

I suspect that some black voters might have not liked Biden’s old Law & Order era from the early 90’s. I suspect those who were bothered by it the most weren’t even born in that era.

Trump's legal challenges aren't about winning the presidency in court. It's about grifting his supporters. I'd be surprised if more than 20% of the money raised is used for legal fees.

Yeah, that's possible. I do however remain skeptical.

I don't like that the media are calling the Trumpanzees skeptical of the ballot count. They are denying it. The media needs to stop being so PC.

To console themselves, Trump's campaign have been sharing with each other and with Trump supporters a Washington Times headline from Bush's election in 2000 declaring Gore the winner, as a reminder that the media has sometimes Gotten It Wrong and therefore they should remain resolute.

The only problem is, it's a Photoshop fake - the Washington Times never reported a Gore win - and not only that, but it's such a poor Photoshop job that the actual article text beneath the "President Gore" headline explicitly states that Bush defeated Gore.

It's a tapatalk post, which means it was done on a phone. Seems extremely likely that it was a pocket post.

Android kept changing my screen settings for a while and I accidentally called the police some 3 times while mowing my grass once.

But... it's time for healing. Which means Reps asses need to be kissed and powdered. For some strange reason it's always the Dems responsibility to heal, while the Reps can smash everything to pieces.

He's shooting for the whole election to be invalidated by the supreme court.

The other problem is that it's the Washington Times, which

Quote:
...has published many columns which reject the scientific consensus on climate change, on ozone depletion, and on the harmful effects of second-hand smoke. It has drawn controversy for publishing racist content including conspiracy theories about U.S. President Barack Obama, supporting neo-Confederate historical revisionism, and promoting Islamophobia.
I mean, you'd think conservatives who want to give themselves hope by crowing about how the media has sometimes Gotten It Wrong could find fake a better example than one of their own.

That was the nickname for John Gotti. Coincidentally, Rudy knows that well since he prosecuted Gotti. As much as I'd like to agree with you on this, I don't remember anyone before the last few years refer to Trump as that.

Oh, I thought they called him that because too much exposure to him causes cancer.

Someone is trying to make him sound reasonable, or save face, but take a look at that conditional statement. IF his legal challenges fail THEN he will concede and execute a peaceful transition of power. There's a fallacy there I can't quite put my finger on. IF his legal challenges fail, THEN he has no ******* leg to stand on whatsoever. The statement ... nullifies itself, is the best I can come up with. Or it's a tautology. IF he fails, then he fails. He doesn't have to concede. It's conventional, but it's not required. So why bother making a statement? He's welcome to stick to his guns, as far as I'm concerned. But the DOJ doesn't seem to be going all-in with him anymore. It never quite did, Barr's efforts notwithstanding.

ETA: L'etat, c'est ne pas Donald Trump.

There’s an Astroturfing joke in there somewhere, but I can’t find it.
