Well, yeah, but this sort of thing seems to happen on a monthly basis.

If you like Steve Schmidt’s words, you should look up the Lincoln Projects ads against Trump on YouTube. They’re a group of pissed off Republicans. The ads are on the money.

Of course, these people were happy to have the racist vote when it was for a Bush, Romney, or McCain.

The President, seeing poll numbers suggesting a landslide blue wave election, bad new GDP numbers, and no end to the pandemic he has not even tried to manage, floats the idea of delaying the election. To be clear, that requires an act of Congress, which isn’t happening. But it can’t hurt him to sow seeds of illegitimacy surrounding the election, notwithstanding his party’s open war on fair and free elections. It will only get worse, of course.

But in the end, unless he wins election, his term ends on January 20 at noon. And THAT can only be changed by amending the constitution.

Trump’s recent “performances” have been pathetic. Looking forward to watching him leave the WH.

Watch him throw a tantrum and refuse to leave, forcing the house to send in his favourite federal troopers.

@SethAbramson has put forth a rather baroque theory on Twitter about the real endgame, which (in short) is to sow enough trouble to actually discourage Republicans from voting to such an extent that his loss is so lopsided that the validity of the election is called into question, resulting in chaos.

I have slightly more faith in SCOTUS to shut anything down than Abramson, and i doubt Trump has the strategic capacity to think in the 3D chess that the theory sort of requires, but the thread is pretty chilling.

Yeah, you're right - that is scary. I wouldn't say it's likely, but... then again, this whole administration has been anything but likely.

Whatever, some people never accepted Obama got into office the entire 8 year he was there. They were probably threatening to stop that from happening. Nope. Bunch of whiny little bitches they are.

I imagine there will be some nasty tweets as he stays up all night waiting for the movers.

Boy was I surprised last when, in conversation with a good (francophone) friend that she really likes Trump. Now, her English is very poor, so I'm sure his diatribes and such mean little to her. In Canada, she is very much a Liberal.

What can she possibly like about about the stain? She wouldn't expand on it.

You don’t really think he’ll get banged up do you? (God I hope he does.)

Apparently the White House are trying to find out what it takes to add a face to Mount Rushmore....
