    I know they have to find people at the extreme end of the spectrum for reports like this, but the idea that a sizeable proportion of 70 million+ people have consumed this koolaid is absolutely terrifying to me.

    There is literally nothing you can say to these people.

    Trump just fires anyone once he's no longer 100% happy with them and what makes him happy changes with the wind. As he fears the wind, due to his ridiculous hairdo, this is doubly problematic.

    Trump's strategy from the beginning was denounce anything he didn't like as "fake news" and to tell his supporters that only he could be believed. This is the inevitable outcome of the continued amplification of that approach. If the person in whom you have entrusted everything tells you that everything else is fake, you believe it. That's the main sense in which Trump is cult-like. He is the leader, not the GOP.

    The difference between Trump and Hitler is success, in that Hitler successfully destroyed democracy.

    Biden Transition Live Updates: Michigan Certifies Election Results, Making Biden’s Win There Official

    Michigan’s statewide electoral board approved its presidential vote tally on Monday, resisting pressure from President Trump to delay the process and paving the way for President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. to receive the state’s 16 electoral votes.

    The Michigan vote was one of the biggest setbacks yet for Mr. Trump, who had directly intervened in the state’s electoral process to voice support for Republican officials who had made false claims about the integrity of the vote, and invited Michigan G.O.P. legislative leaders to the White House on Friday. Those leaders said afterward that they would allow the normal certification process to play out.

    Oh good. I thought they were the most likely not to certify

    So we’re still waiting for Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Arizona to certify?? This is never ending

    Arizona has to certify by November 30
    Wisconsin has to be December first and they’re recounting a few counties :evil:

    Yeah. I just hate her so much. She was truly the most hated woman in America for the past 1-2 weeks. I don't think I've ever seen someone so cowardly.

    Nah that's just him trying to make it look like he's 'fine' with it and that it's all 'part of his plan' when in reality it was congressional pressure and the Michigan certification that forced her to give up.

    Well that was inevitable. No doubt to be followed by pardons for every other corrupt, lying scumbag in his administration in a desperate attempt to stop them rolling over on the fat, orange fuck the moment he leaves office.

    Which is why the resign and make Pence President has such traction as a theory.

    It would be such a weird trajectory in history if Pence becomes president (and MOTHER becomes First Lady)

    I thought pardoning people in your Lame Duck period was quite common among Presidents.

    It is, but usually I don't think it is to pardon criminals so intimately connected to the pardoning president's administration? Or is it?

    I think most administrations don't have criminals so intimately connected :D

    (They probably do for general war crime reasons, but not in this way)

    I heard it speculated over here yesterday that it's not impossible. Whether or not it works would depend on what happens when he presents his pardon in front of court because there's no legal precident for it.

    Well that is terrifying, especially since he has stacked the courts. What I read was based on Nixon, so a very different time/political era.

    I do like the idea of him having to admit to his crimes. Him going to jail seems unlikely, so he might as well at least have to do that.

    It actually looks quite good this year. She must have had as much input as she has screen time in the video

    I’m disappointed actually, was hoping the trees would be festooned with the organs of her enemies.
