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 Bidenís old Law & Order era from the early 90ís. I suspect those who were bothered by it the most werenít 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.

So he doesn't know the ballots are still segregated and not in the count totals. That's what you get from slanted news. I wonder if Hannity told him that.

Hey Trumpy, that news is fake, edited for ratings.

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.

- Apparently, both Jared Kutchner and Melania have approached Trump about conceding.

- George W. Bush congratulated Biden and stated that the results are "fundamentally fair" and "outcome is clear."

- However multiple top Republicans have still either not acknowledge or outright denied the results of the election including McConnell and Graham. I'll assume Susan Collins is very concerned about something somewhere.

The next time someone asks him how many bars he's got, I hope he looks at the window instead of his phone.
