    It's what they always say, but I saw it and he had a straight face on. Part of telling a joke like that is doing something to let people know you're telling a joke by smirking or something.

    Even TUCKER FUCKING CARLSON is saying that Biden won and there's no chance Trump can change the result with lawsuits.

    TUCKER FUCKING CARLSON

    Wonder if conservatives will organize an advertiser boycott after this.

    (also holy shit deja vu)
    Although he is still pushing the conspiracy theory that there was massive fraud...just that it wasn't "massive enough" to effect the outcome.

    Poor Trump supporter, doesn't like it that the Media has always had a projected winner for over 150 years by people like the AP. I bet you didn't have a problem with it when Trump was the projected winner 2 days after the 2016 election, did you?

    He has the most votes momentarily. There are lawsuits going on, and recounts in several states.
    [Infraction]
    Actually, there hasn't been a recount yet, and all of the lawsuits brought by Trump so far, have been thrown out.

    How....How is this a talking point? Of course by the media, as they have done every single election of my lifetime and it was never an issue. Do this for us, look when CNN called it and now tell us the difference in vote totals. Find some math that tells them and us they were wrong please.

    I think we're dealing with a lot of dipshits that are either too young to remember previous elections or didn't follow politics at all before Trump.

    That's not all of them, some are just idiots who drink the kool-aid and parrot everything the right wing media tells them, others are desperately coping.

    Literally happens every year. I woke up to the heart wrenching news of Trump being declared the president elect on Nov. 4th 2016 by the major media outlets.

    Had state electors cast their votes? No.

    Had any state certified their counts? No.

    Had any state even fucking finished their initial count completely? No.

    Did Trump win in 2016 by smaller margins than Biden currently has? Yes!

    Now shut the fuck up please.

    I think we have a good portion of the nation. Like 1/3 who actually believe Trump tells the truth. Now Trump constantly lies, he lies about anything and everything generally for no reason and he tells stupid just easily disprovable lies. And people believe every word he says.

    I know a guy who in the face of everything being debunked is holding on to that one update that happened where Biden got some votes and Trump got none, now while that was debunked, he's still hanging on to it like his life depends on it.

    They don't understand that all of Trumps lawsuits have been thrown out for being frivolous and lacking merit or evidence. They still think that this is going to go to the supreme court and they are going to flip a minimum of 3 states for no reason. They seem unwilling to accept that Florida in 2000 only happened because Bush "won" the state by 537 votes. I don't know how much more AZ has to count, but it and every other state Biden is winning in have him up over 10k votes. You would have to have less faith in this country than I do if you think the supreme court is going to flip that many states with such a big difference.

    But this irrational drive they feel to defend Trump and believe he still has a path to victory comes from them being in a cult. He is their figure of faith, he is their religion and they can't imagine a scenario in which their divine being can lose.

    Reuters just released some polling numbers that show about 80% of Americans believe Biden is the valid winner and that Trump should concede.

    If you look at the total population of the US, it was only about 21% of Americans that turned out and voted for Trump.

    This is just another example of the so-called "silent majority" refusing to shut the fuck up about something they don't even comprehend.

    You're right about it being a cult of personality, though. A decent chunk of these people literally think he was chosen by God to lead this country. Of course they're not going to comprehend him losing. And rather than taking it in stride as part of "God's plan" it'll probably devolve into some sort of "demoncrat" conspiracy to summon the devil with baby blood and goat cum.

    TL; DW: Trump's legal team is terrible, the courts are defeating him, and even if the judges ruled in his favor, the vote counts would still give Biden a victory.

    End of Day 7: Trump is down nearly 5 million votes and he and his allies are 0-12 in court I guess.

    I think it's 1-11 if you count getting the SCOTUS to tell counters in PA to segregate ballots, which they were already doing anyway. Go team!

    Yep...I think it's time to get that Talluto's ravioli out of the freezer. The good ones, the portabella. I've been waiting for "official" and, well, hard to get more official than "Trump could cheat and still lose".

    That said, Biden leadsd Georgia by 14,000 with 32,000 left to count. The fried chicken will wait, but maybe not by much. Yes, I'm doing fried chicken not peach pie.

    Arizona, ahead by 12,000 with 51,000 left in play.

    Well the lawyers keep having to tell the truth in court.

    To tell you how dumb team Trump is, the one supposedly "HUGE CASE" in PA that he is trying to get them to not certify the results due to "irregularities in how votes were counted" was in 2 counties, both voted for Trump.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...?ocid=msedgdhp

    Trump's big new election lawsuit alleges voter fraud potentially happened in 2 Pennsylvania counties. Both overwhelmingly voted for him.

    The Trump campaign's new major lawsuit in Pennsylvania alleges that voter fraud potentially happened in only two counties.

    Both counties, Fayette and Luzerne, voted for President Donald Trump. The news articles cited in the lawsuit to bolster its claims reported that local officials were addressing the irregularities before Election Day. The lawsuit also doesn't offer any basis for the kind of widespread voter fraud that Trump has repeatedly alleged without any evidence.
    Trump and other Republicans have filed over a dozen lawsuits contesting the 2020 election. Their main efforts are in Pennsylvania, which gave President-elect Joe Biden enough electoral votes to clinch the race.

    On Monday, the Trump campaign filed an 85-page lawsuit asking a federal judge to block Pennsylvania's secretary of state from certifying the results of the presidential election.

    The lawsuit seeks to block President-elect Joe Biden from formally receiving the state's 20 electoral votes, which would reduce his overall total but would be unlikely to reverse the election result.

    The lawsuit makes several claims of irregularities in how votes were counted, citing unnamed poll watchers and election observers. It also accuses Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar of giving improper guidance to election officials for processing mail-in ballots.

    But the filing cites only two specific instances of potential voter fraud, Adam Klasfeld reported for Law & Crime. Both are in counties that voted heavily for President Donald Trump.

    If votes were thrown out in those areas, they could widen the gap of 45,000 votes (and counting) between Biden and Trump in the state.

    As the news articles cited in the lawsuit pointed out, authorities had already addressed the issues that opened the door for voter fraud well before Election Day. And the lawsuits do not offer any evidence of the kind of widespread voter fraud Trump has repeatedly and baselessly alleged.

    The lawsuit says that in Fayette County, some voters received two ballots in the mail while others received ballots that had already been filled out. The lawyers representing the Trump campaign argued that both situations could lead to voter fraud. It cites two local news articles from October to back up the claims. One of the articles, about duplicate ballots, reported that the county election board had already resolved the issue. Other reports about ballots in the county being prefilled said election officials were addressing that issue as well. Trump won nearly 67% of the vote in Fayette County, according to data from Decision Desk HQ and Insider.
    The lawsuit says that in Luzerne County, a "temporary seasonal elections worker" threw out nine military ballots that were in unmarked envelopes. It's not clear whether those ballots were for the primary or the general election. The lawsuit cites a local news article from September — which also reported that the incident was under investigation and that the county had already changed its rules to prevent similar issues. About 57% of voters in the county voted for Trump, according to data from Decision Desk HQ and Insider.
    The lawsuit doesn't name Luzerne County or Fayette County as defendants, but it does go after the election boards in the counties of Allegheny, Centre, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, Northampton, and Philadelphia — all based on allegations of irregularities from anonymous poll watchers and election watchers. Voters in all those counties preferred Biden to Trump, according to Decision Desk HQ data.

    In arguing that voter fraud overall is a significant risk in Pennsylvania, the lawyers cited only three cases over a 21-year period in the entire state.

    Election experts have said voter fraud is extremely rare. A 2020 analysis from the right-wing Heritage Foundation found that a very small percentage of votes cast resulted in any kind of criminal conviction.

    The lawsuit's arguments about problems with how mail-in ballots were processed "make no sense," Richard Briffault, a Columbia Law School professor who studies election litigation, told Insider.

    "In effect, they are saying the mailed-in ballots are unconstitutional, which is ludicrous," Briffault said. "In any event, any challenges to PA's mailed-ballot procedures that were on the books prior to Election Day (and not imposed by a court) could have and so should have been brought before the election, and so should be thrown out for that reason alone."

    The new lawsuit is one of more than a dozen the Trump campaign and other Republicans have filed across the country seeking to undermine the 2020 election result. Pennsylvania is particularly important because its 20 electoral votes ensured Biden's victory.

    But even if the highly unlikely happens and Biden's electoral votes in Pennsylvania aren't certified because of this lawsuit, Trump would still have to win Arizona, Georgia, and Alaska to secure the 270 electoral votes necessary to win the presidency. Of those, he is expected to win only Alaska and its three electoral votes.

    The Trump campaign is also seeking to join a Supreme Court case over the validity of mail-in ballots that arrived at processing centers after Election Day. But it's unlikely that there are enough such ballots to overcome Biden's lead.
