Venture out of your bubble, Trump supporters, and try to understand how most of America thinks

Eugene Robinson/WaPo:

Want to understand Biden voters? Here’s your reading list.

After Donald Trump won in 2016, the media and academia embarked on a numbingly comprehensive sociological and anthropological examination of “the Trump voter.” Reporters and researchers swarmed what seemed like every bereft factory town in the industrial Midwest, every hill and hollow of Appalachia, every windswept farming community throughout the Great Plains. I’m pretty sure television crews did, in fact, bring us reports from every single diner in the contiguous United States — at least, those where at least one regular patron wears overalls.

Never mind that nearly 3 million more of us voted against Trump four years ago; no one seemed terribly interested in our inner lives, our hopes and dreams. This time, however, the gap is too big to ignore — Biden, the president-elect, beat Trump by more than 6 million votes and counting. He won back the heartland of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. He won Georgia, for heaven’s sake.

Logically, then, we should put aside those dog-eared copies of J.D. Vance’s “Hillbilly Elegy” and subject “the Biden voter” to the same kind of microscopic scrutiny. Venture out of your bubble, Trump supporters, and try to understand how most of America thinks


You supported the guy when he was screwing everybody else - but now it's personal?

By all accounts, Georgia had a wildly successful and smooth election. We finally defeated voting lines and put behind us Fulton County’s now notorious reputation for disastrous elections. This should be something for Georgians to celebrate, whether their favored presidential candidate won or lost. For those wondering, mine lost — my family voted for him, donated to him and are now being thrown under the bus by him.

Stormy was right all along...

Trump's remarks today lasted exactly 64 seconds.
After Trump left the room, you can hear a reporter say, "Well that was weird as shit."


me bad

Attention to detail (I don't know who made this but damn...)


BREAKING: Biden/Harris just became 1st presidential ticket in history to surpass 80 million votes

BREAKING: Biden/Harris just became the first presidential ticket in history to surpass 80 million votes...

Biden 80,033,996 (51.0%)
Trump 73,878,907 (47.1%)

Prior to 2020, no ticket had ever hit 70 million.

Pretty Pic:

Trump to supporters: "Be outraged, don't accept the election results...and send money."

....this barrage is doing more than squeezing cash out of Trump fanatics. For the recipients, it is solidifying a dangerous message: the election was illegitimate. Though campaigns typically do not disclose such information, it is a fair assumption that millions of people are receiving these solicitations on a daily basis. Your pro-Trump uncle or aunt—they are constantly being told that the evil Democrats have mounted a coup to topple Trump. Yes, Trump tweets this every day. But for those Trump-supporting Americans not on Twitter, these emails form a ceaseless reinforcement of Trump’s false counter-narrative: the 2020 election was rigged...
