    Them trying to pass themselves off as a loving couple is one of the biggest lies Trump could tell, and that's saying something.
    Well, I mean, except it has apparently been debunked per the link I supplied in the previous post.

    And nobody cares if their marriage is a sham. We already know it is and to the Trumpsters and "Evangelicals" it doesn't matter if it is. They're behind him no matter what and if their marriage was so important to them they'd have protested a bit more about his screwing around with sex workers during it.

    They didn't, the majority of America was and still is against him, it's only an electoral college victory that allowed him to win. Also Hillary's chances weren't helped any by the fact that Trump came along at a time when the Democrats had just had two terms with the presidency, it's been awhile since any political party has been able to win three times in a row.

    people are so assured he's going to lose/is fucked there are already memes about it. But not only is that in no way guaranteed, people also firmly believe he colluded with Russia or some foreign powers to cheat his way into office. Assuming that is true and since the dictators out there have said they preferred Trump to Biden, shouldn't he logically be more likely to win?

    Because he did, at least his campaign anyway. Thanks to the Mueller Report and the Republican led Senate Intel Committee report.

    He just...pressed on as prez.

    And shouldn't Al Capone have been brought in on more than just tax evasion charges?

    When Republicans don't care about the rule of law, and apparently the only way he can be removed, is by impeachment? No, apparently not.

    Team Trump apparently sent a Security Info request to the Commissioner of Cumberland County (PA) that included requests for rather specific bits of information:

    County officials said they have not responded to the request and do not intend to, according to the county commissioners.

    Mr Reyes told Channel 4 News that staff from Facebook who were embedded in Project Alamo helped the campaign to maximise engagement with their video messages.

    One method used by the campaign was a new feature on Facebook allowing video commercials to be shown full frame on mobile devices.

    Mr Reyes told us: “We wanted the videos to be bigger. So we have more space to, for you to see like Trump talking, and then you’d have the subtitles.

    So Facebook came up with this idea of hey what if we filled the entire screen? What if when you’re scrolling, the entire screen gets filled up instead of you just seeing a certain portion of it. And they created that for us.

    Facebook told us: “We were developing vertical video formats in 2015 and rolled them out well before the 2016 election.”

    Facebook declined to tell us exactly when the service was rolled out.
    The next time Trump and conservatives rail against Facebook and "big tech", remind them that their success relied on the help of Mark Zuckerberg.

    As I noted in the other thread hopefully they increase security on these places.

    It also has me somewhat worried for Florida. DeSantis is a major Trump sycophant; I wouldn't be surprised if he "looked the other way" to any insidious actions Trump's campaign team sought to take in Florida. Hopefully more democracy-minded heads prevail.

    I don't buy into the body double thing. I think this is Melania realizing what life will be like once her husband is out of the White House and knows it only gets worse for her. Part of the public perception of Trump is "if even his wife doesn't like him, why should the rest of us?" So she puts on a momentary show for us to try to change that perception. I guess she realized that she only has to pretend for a few seconds a week before the election and then she can go back to hating him again.

    I would be disappointed of course because he's been a complete piece of shit this whole time as president.

    If such a large amount of people can be that dumb, we don't deserve to survive the next century. Sad for us normal folks though

    There are pictures of melania with her body double.

    Edit: I want to be clear, I don't know if they're using one on the campaign trail, but she definitely has one.

    Snopes blames that on bad TV, but I don't know. The nose and facial structure is all weird.

    I think they're right though, because of the one inherent flaw in all conspiracies: the fact that it'd be surprisingly hard to pull off.
