    Newt Gingrich in 2020 on Donald Trump's 20,000 lies, some of them pretty fucking trivial: *Crickets*

    Then there's Lou Dobbs; The selfy stick is a way to make one look like a self-absorbed assclown, says cheerleader for party that will, a few years later elect a self-absorbed assclown.

    And then Andrew Card on Obama loosening the dress code a bit and not wearing a suit jacket. A "locker room experience." Okay. So I guess when Trump makes "locker room" talk about grabbing women by the vagina, you wouldn't support that either, right?

    This shit is why I can't take these people seriously, especially Sean Hannity. Fuck that guy. Bicycle helmets and dijon mustard are scandals, but he'll give Trump a pass for kowtowing to Putin, for ignoring a massive pandemic, for paying off a pornstar, for extorting a foreign leader?

    We had eight fucking years of Republicans making mountains out of molehills for Obama because they literally had nothing they could attack him with.

    Oh and just because he had a few appearances in that video . . . fuck you Karl Rove.

    I heard she's "politically correct" because she wears a mask at Trump rallies.

    I heard that too. It brings a little satisfaction seeing someone who has been warned not to pet the rabid dog, finally have the dog turn around and bite that person.

    I believe the term is schadenfreude

    When Trump says we are rounding the corner, I can think of 47,502 reasons he's incorrect.

    That's the number of Americans in the hospital, with COVID-19.

    9,546 of them are in the ICU.

    We totally rounded the corner. Unfortunately we rounded too sharply and turned into oncoming traffic.

    And if Biden wins and appoints an actual DOJ, their first order of business should be to investigate Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, and Brett Kavanaugh.
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add
    "mmo-champion.com##li.postbitignored"
    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    I mean...pretty much the whole cabinet, including former Secretaries. And Barr. And a host of non-cabinet appointments and the extensive use of "acting" officials who have been illegal doing their jobs in defiance of court orders.

    DeVos in particular needs to go to jail for repeatedly and flagrantly ignoring judicial rulings.

    Agreed, definitely him.

    I honestly am of the mind that if we can pin Trump and McConnell on charges that they worked to benefit Russia, they can effectively invalidate all of their appointments as being tainted from the start to being against America's best interests. Assuming the Democrats got the balls to push for it.

    The best part about the stupidity of the George being called George controversy... is that 3 different people posted it, without realizing it was making them look like fools.

    And then after doing so they scuttled away back into their hole, waiting for the next nit to pick or Astroturfed Scandal to broadcast. Though, this close to the election, I guess they're just waiting to get the 'The winner should be decided exactly on November 3rd even though no election has actually been like that!!!!' talking points out there.

    I am wondering if Trump will claim to be the victor at 6PM EST...

    Trump will no doubt claim victory at some point, regardless of the actual standing at that point.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    You know what’d be fantastic? If the polls showed Biden ahead by tomorrow night anyway.

    Not saying it’ll happen, but boy would that throw any inkling of trumps illegitimate contesting right into the dumpster where it belongs.

    Due to timezones I didn't know anything going to sleep 4 years ago. I woke up in the middle of the night, looked at my phone and thought "what the fuck" before hitting the cushion again. Can't have been awake for more than 10 seconds.

    I hope I don't wake up this time, there is no way we get an accurate result on election day. It will take at least a week, probably more.

    But yeah, Trump will say he won a minute after polling station close. He will say it's rigged. No doubt about it.

    Trump's EPA is being sued (again) for not P-ing the E. Specifically, the rule about letting power plants pollute as much as they want.

    Covid-19 cases, deaths rising at rapid rate ahead of Election Day

    Forty-eight U.S. states now have a full or partial mask mandate, including states led by Republican governors like Arkansas which were slow to impose such a restriction. The only two that don't are North and South Dakota, the latter of which is led by GOP Gov. Kristi Noem who claimed numbers showing her state was the site of a "superspreader" motorcycle rally in August were "made up."
    Immediate follow-up:

    North Dakota COVID-19 infections have increased 167 percent in one month

    Ryan Mahoney, former RNC official, says he voted for Biden.

    Pelosi calls Trump's plan to declare victory without the actual votes unConstitutional and says it's voter suppression, not by stopping votes from being placed, but counted.

    Twitter outlines how it will label tweets claiming early U.S. election victory

    That means you too, Trump.

    In an updated blog, the company said it would consider state election officials and national news outlets such as ABC News, Associated Press, CNN and Fox News that have independent election decision desks as official sources for results.
