    No, the left does not "have" riots, nor parades. And while the protests were largely attended by people on the left, they were not some planned rally created by the establishment.

    And the relative precaution taken by the protestors vs. the utter lack of concern exhibited by the typical Trump rally attendee shows a stark difference in the two sides, as well.

    There's no "both sides" to this, and any attempt to claim so will justly be met with derision.

    No you can't.

    1. The left hasn't rioted.
    2. There's been no left parades.
    3. The protests haven't been planned. I mean if you cannot see the difference between a planned massive biker rally/a large donor gala with an unplanned visceral reaction to ANOTHER unarmed black person being killed by the police, then you're likely not seeing it purposely.

    And Ben Carson is now positive for Covid. Wonder if he'll be the only cabinet secretary to fall to Covid.

    Since the election, has there been a Trump concession speech?

    I haven't seen one yet.

    The "left" wears fucking masks and passes them out at their OUTDOOR EVENTS hence why there have been no spikes tied to protests but tons of strikes tied to fucking trump rallies where people don't think Corona virus is a thing...

    Biden isn't an idiot like Trump who will seek to destroy everything related to the previous administration. Biden will, like a sane person, get rid of much of Trump's cabinet (because most of them are corrupt or incompetent) and proceed to roll back Trump policies that are harmful to the USA. On the policies that aren't harmful he won't arbitrarily get rid of them out of pure spite, because Biden isn't an narcissistic egomaniac. We will rejoin the Paris Climate Accords, cease our withdrawal from the WHO, and continue to negotiate with China on trade policy. I doubt he'll just end the trade war, he'll find places to compromise on and hopefully leverage places where we are in an advantageous position. Because, I cannot stress this enough, Biden is not a man-child that is fueled by spite.
    nothing to do with spite, its just anything trump touched was infected and damaged. He would be a semi liability to the team even if the reasons why are not anywhere close to being realisitic.

    Not part of the stink, was stuck with the stink cause he tried to make a difference.

    The other party and its supporters would just try to use him as a wedge and detrimental effects would occur with his participation

    Yes and after all that he is now damaged goods thanks to trump

    at best he should be a quiet advisor to the new team behind the scenes.

    But:

    1) I don't think Trump knows that. I think he believes court cases are decided in the court of public opinion. I think he believes all things are decided there.

    2) He needs to keep his base riled up and angry if he's going to start terrorist riots, which is still an option for him.

    3) Rallies are therapy for him. Trump loves nothing more than to stand before a (cough partially) packed crowd and hear people cheer how much they love him. You'd think he'd need a dose of that like an extra-large order of fries right now.

    4) It would be another way to funnel what's left of his campaign's money into his pockets before paying outstanding debts to other places.
    Whats really sick is I can see these new rallies being way worse. He knows he lost so who cares about mask now? All the optics can go away and he can say whatever he wants because he does not have to pretend to care about anyone but his base. And you know the crowds are really turn out now because hes been gaslighting them for years.

    Lets be honest though even without mask.
    I wouldn't be surprised if people exchanged spit at Trump events as to own the libs.

    I would bet the final straw was that Esper was concerned about the transition, and spoke up about it. With Trump refusing to accept defeat, he is barring department heads from speaking with the incoming Presidential Transition team, which is essential to making things transfer smoothly. Esper was doubtless concerned with what months of gridlock followed by an extremely rapid transition would do to our entire defense apparatus.

    He has been on thin ice for a long time now, but the timing of it makes me pretty certain that he brought up the issue with Meadows, and argued for contact with Biden's team. Pure speculation I know, but we are going to see more of this. The DoD is going to be desperate to get this transition going, since there is so much to do. If they don't start talking to the Biden team soon, then Biden is going to have to start making important decisions without the pentagon's input, and that is nobodies interests.

    Apparently offering resignations following a loss isn't uncommon, and there had apparently been beef between the two because Esper disagreed with Trump on quite a few things.

    I'm reading that Trump had him fired, not resigned.

    I know there's a fine line between "terminated" and "resign" where they can blend a little, but resignations aren't normally effective immediately in the middle of a Monday.

    I could see someone just wanting to get out of that shit show as soon as possible though.
