Not taking the Electoral College news well

BY BESS LEVIN
DECEMBER 15, 2020

The American people have spoken. The Electoral College has spoken. Hell, even Mitch McConnell and Vladimir Putin have spoken. And .. they’ve all said .. Biden is .. president-elect ... Trump is never going to admit that, not now, not the day the movers ship his stuff .. to Mar-a-Lago, and not after throwing a shit-fit upon being told he can’t just “take” Air Force One with him ...

... Trump believed .. until Monday’s Electoral College vote, that “Republican–controlled state legislatures would replace electors with allies who’d overturn Joe Biden’s win” ... Another source said the president ranted that Georgia governor Brian Kemp owed him big time yet did nothing to stop this election travesty ...

... McConnell is reportedly begging his colleagues not to embarrass themselves even more ...

1. When will they realize that he is delusional and insane?

What will it take?

2. I don't believe anything would do it.

It is pure cult behaviour and as such refractory to fact & logic.

Possible partial exception for those who realize it but play along for their own benefit...

11. They know FULL WELL he's an imbecile...

But a useful idiot. Installed hundreds of unqualified Nazi judges and destroyed the economy by cutting taxes for billionaires.
They will now move on to the next wannabe dictator.

3. If he's been a gracious winner in the past it might go better for him, but

he's always been so smug when he does "win" even though its almost always been due to some form of cheating or lying.

5. I would be too confident that McTurtle is really begging his colleagues to stand down

If it took the word from Vladimir Vladimirovitch himself before Moscow Mitch threw in the towel, I think every single Republican Congresscritter still denying/defying the election result does so with his blessing.

12. Everyone sees now Trump is simply scared

disrupting the election results was not a strategy, it was simply delay. And everyone including most of the GOP are now tired of it.

13. Still have to be delivered to the president of the senate

They then pair the six Certificates of Ascertainment
provided by the state governors with the Certificates of the
Vote, and sign, seal, and certify them(3 U.S.C. §§8-10).
The six certificates are then distributed by registered mail
as follows: (1) one certificate to the President of the U.S.
Senate (the Vice President); (2)two certificates to the
secretary of state (or equivalent officer) of the state in
which the electors met; (3) two certificates to the Archivist;
and (4) one certificate to the judge of the U.S. district court
of the district in which the electors met (3 U.S.C. §11).


December 23, 2020: Certificates Must Be Delivered
to the Designated Officials

15. I am grateful for a number of the recent developments

- Newsmax recognized Biden as President elect
- McConnell recognized Biden as President elect
- Putin recognized Biden as President elect
- Sen. Ron Johnson calls election legitimate and acknowledges Biden
- No Faithless Electors got stolen by Trump
- Trump campaign asks "Should President Trump run in 2024?"
- McConnell asked the Senators to not support the House to question the Electoral College
- Barr resigning - is a sign that what Trump is flirting with is beyond his criminality and he won't go along with it.
- the courts were unrelenting
- etc

A lot of good things happened recently. Helped calm me down.

But Trump is one nasty, sick son of a bitch.
I'll bet they've been in the White House brainstorming martial law or other scenarios like that.
I don't trust him or the rest of his crooks.
It most certainly doesn't look good for him.
I'm not comfortable yet.
This man has been a nightmare.
I'm not sure what it will take. I'm not there yet.

16. Funny: he built that wall all around our White House...and crickets.

I still believe he was expecting to win, and thought there were going to be riots in the streets protesting his win.
God I love the results.
Someone above said he hasn't tweeted in 7 hours. That makes me smile, too.
