When Trump Loses The Election: Prediction

1. He will lose in a landslide

2. He will spend the first week making noise about not accepting the results and voter fraud and all that.

3. McTurtle and other surviving GOP senators will signal that they accept Biden's victory. They will do this because they realize they have far more power under a Biden presidency than under an illegitimate/illegal Trump presidency

4. They will challenge random Congressional and state house races in order to make it seem like they are not just rolling over

5. Trump, having no other options, will be forced to leave the White House but will not concede and continue to tweet about FAKE WINNER and VOTER FRAUD until Dorsey shuts off his account on January 21st

6. Trump will continue on as a talk radio show host, riling up the masses and making fairly regular appearances on Fox, but the rest of the media will largely ignore him as his audience is not very large, they have other bigger stories to cover and (most important) the audience had grown tired of Trump and people don't engage with stories about him.

7. The NY Attorney General, under pressure from both sides of the political aisle will allow the Trumps to take a plea bargain that essentially leaves them broke. The impetus will be the notion that Trump has finally faded into the background and a trial would only put him front and center again in a nation that needs to move past him.

8. In 2023/24 there will be a spate of books essentially congratulating America for overcoming the greatest threat to democracy in the nation's history. In 2030, there will be a spate of books that attempt to explain how 2020 happened,

When Trump loses he will either make unbelievable trouble until Inauguration OR he will flee the country to avoid prosecution. He will not stick around.

So, he's toast?

I was kind of hoping he would die on November 4.

by Anonymousreply 310/10/2020

OP, from the group I follow on Twitter, they're saying he is literally losing his mind. He's losing the election and is really freaked out by SDNY. He has nowhere to turn and thats why his batshit craziness reaches new highs everyday.

I dont think they have floated any 'flee the country' speculation but one can always hope.

by Anonymousreply 410/10/2020

Not bad OP except #6. Trump does have a large audience, media-wise. Remember that a great rating on Fox is 2 million viewers. Trump has far more than that at his command. He won't go away unless he has to for legal or health reasons. And, of course, he might start his own network or team up with OAN or some such.

My prediction is different. I think Trump will die in 2021 -- whatever is keeping him alive will fade after he loses and the combination of the loss, the tax issues, the possible legal battles, and depression will finally kill him.

When he goes, part of the nation will mourn and cry, but most of the nation will be relieved. Don Jr. however, will try to take up the mantle rather than Ivanka, who, with Jared, will face legal issues of her own. Javanka would rather return to NY and use their wealth to buy their way back into their social circles which are as shallow and superficial as the Trumps.

by Anonymousreply 510/10/2020

Bear in mind there's a likelihood that he'd be sticking around with a Dem Senate to block his confirmations, and hold even nastier hearings. He can only try to hold on in a real squeaker, which is highly unlikely. RNC and Congressional Rs will acknowledge Biden as new prez.

Fairly plausible, OP. But I do think there could be some bursts of political violence accompanying all this. Driven by crazed Trump supports of the "Let's kidnap Gretchen Whitmer" variety.

by Anonymousreply 810/10/2020

I think his audience is fading quickly R5

Sort of the way a TV series loses viewers once it becomes stale.

The Trump Show had a good run but his supporters are ready to move on to something else. He keeps trotting out his greatest hits about Hillary and Obama and they become more irrelevant and that pushes the audience elsewhere.

Fox will move on to promoting Tom Cotton or Josh Hawley or someone else in that vein and Trump will be forgotten

R7

Comparing 2016 and 2020 has become apples and oranges. Clinton was never close to competitive in places like TX and GA; Biden's support is far more solid, those voters who disliked both candidates last time, so were willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, have completely soured on the incumbent.

by Anonymousreply 1110/10/2020

I can’t believe people are so cocky about this again.

It was a certain landslide last time. No one doubted it except Steve Bannon. MSNBC pre-partied and Fox News accepted their losing fate.

My dad taught me to expect the worst and hope for the best to reduce disappointment.

The more confident people are that Trump will lose, and the more vocal about it, the more complacent anti-Trump people who are not excited by Biden will be and the more motivated hateful Republican cult members will be.

Do we ever learn from the past? Even just four years ago?

I'm with R8. I fear for the violence and unrest that will ensue regardless of the outcome. Trump panders to white nationalists and allowed them to become mainstream again. I doubt these people will just go away just because Biden wins. A pandora's box has been opened and we'll be dealing with it for a very long time.

I think it’s a small group making a lot of noise. Trump is a paper tiger. At heart he’s a huge pussy. I have a friend who is election attorney who said there are a 1000 scenarios here but vote counting is as important as voter turnout. And if it’s a 57-43 race he’s done which seems entirely possible at this point.

If he goes to prison, he can't tweet or go on tv. Not seeing this jerk on tv every day would be a blessing. Of course, even if he tries to pardon himself, he can't do that against state charges, so there would be quite a bit of reporting about prosecutions and lawsuits about him, his family and those around him. But hopefully the press won't show those people talking, just reports of it for the most part.

Don't be complacent and think Biden has it in the bag -- remember Hillary last time, and go and vote Trump out! Early voting is even better than mail-in in that it will be counted on election night, so Trump can't try to call some kind of early victory. One thing different this year is that people have told me for months that they can't wait to vote.

The thing that really gets me is that this fucking idiot had four years to do something - anything - that would have created an exit plan and he did nothing. He can't even be motivated to save himself.

He has gulped down hamberders, shat his Depends, Tweeted insults, slander and lies and paraded his sagging unwiped ass around the country for Nazi-esque rallies.

And that is pretty much all he's done, other than shred any document with a prior living president's signature on it.

He is not going to go gentle into that great goodnight. And I don't mean that as some Dylan Thomas-y noble railing against the fading of the light horseshit. I mean he will have to be pried out of that fucking house by armed guards.

I do expect violence from his supporters, but I also think it will be patchy, swiftly and brutally suppressed and will not lead to any lasting activities from more than the lunatic fringe.

He's not going to be a radio star. He and his fucking family are going to be buried under so many lawsuits they'll never dig out, and I expect more than one of them to spend some time rotting in jail.

Bannon is going to turn on them, and Pascale, and probably a lot of other vipers.

November 4, the Republicans (or what's remaining of them) are going to drop Trump like a hot potato. They're just waiting for an excuse. Him losing in a landslide will be it. They'll always be a few true believers like Tom Cotton and Matt Gaetz, but most will be like "I don't agree with Trump on XYZ." Martha McSally is already halfway there, but it's not working for her.

If Biden doesn’t win, this is the last election ever, and we’re going to live in a third world country with no hope of ever having a correction. Iraq with Saddam Hussein, Uganda with Idi Amin. Trump’s already promising to do things no one has ever done to people that were against him. Expect concentration camps. Wholesale murders by his white supremacist “militia” brownshirts. This guy will stop at absolutely nothing.

Do whatever you have to do to get everyone you know to vote for Biden. Drive old people to the polls, whatever you have to do. This is the end, right here, right now, if we don’t.

by Anonymousreply 3210/10/2020

I predict:

-A surge in democratic mail in ballots which is already happening, making it one of the most participated elections in history.

-An almost certain win for Biden leading up to election day.

-An even stronger than typical turn out for in person voting by republicans in swing states and in general, refusing to vote by mail

-Trump barely winning the electoral college but democrats demanding a delayed victory speech until all the ballots are counted.

-I think the script will be flipped where it won't be Trump holding things up or refusing the white house, but the Democratic party refusing to accept the results. Recounts, delays, etc.

-I think it will be very close, but Trump will barely eek out the win and Biden will overwhelmingly win the popular vote.

-If Trump wins, I expect massive protests and just complete rioting in every major city.

-If Biden wins, I worry that it will be rogue republicans with guns doing things i don't want to predict, but much scarier than riots because they are unpredictable and will be more "out of nowhere" lone wolf type things

by Anonymousreply 3310/10/2020

I agree with most of what has been posted on this thread. Any of the scenarios are possible.

I was reading about the upcoming election and it seems trump is now even starting to lose some of his base support. If the polls are correct, he had a steady support of 43% for the longest time, and now it's at 39%. That means his support is eroding amongst his own base.

The E-V website posted a column from Politico's Tim Alberta, and it pretty much reflects what has been posted here, Americans have become tired of trump.

Here's a short excerpt:

Tim Alberta is Politico's star reporter and is as plugged into what's going on politically as anyone out there. He spends a lot of time on the ground talking to voters but also knows as many insiders as Maggie Haberman or Mike Allen. Anything he writes should be taken seriously, He just wrote a long piece in which he talks about four funny feelings he has. Here is a summary.

• Trump Fatigue Is Real: People are tired of Trump. Everything is about him, all day long. They feel trapped in a reality TV program and want to change the channel but they can't. This even holds for his supporters. Trump's advisers understand that the less he is in the news, the better it is for him, actually. But now he completely dominates the news. In the past 2 weeks alone, we had his taxes, the debate, and then his getting COVID-19. People have just had enough. Some may even resent that he had an opportunity to reset the discussion and completely blew it by having his doctor try to mislead the country and then going joyriding, thus endangering the lives of his Secret Service bodyguards.

I've linked the whole column, if you want to read more.

One final prediction - I do think it will be four more years of Trump, by which point boomers will be really dying off by the next election and we will see the complete opposite in 2024. I see a shift to AOC & the squad coming to power, the 2024 president being in their early 40's, much younger, and a very progressive agenda that is more widely accepted. The majority voters at that point will be Gen X, Millennial, and Gen Z will be just starting to vote or it will be there second election more informed. I think there will actually be less division and people just willing take a chance on a "extreme left" b/c there isn't much to lose.

I'm worried that R12 is correct.

I clearly remember 2016 when everybody said there wasn't a chance in hell of Dump winning the election. Everybody was 100% certain of it. There were so many reasons why he wouldn't win. It was absolutely inconceivable. Not even vaguely possible.

Then he won.

If the Senate goes blue and Trump wins, how long do you think they'll let him sit there? They have grounds to impeach him five times over already. And with the Senate blue, I can't imagine they won't elect to remove.

I don't think the country can take another four years of this. Trump will do NOTHING about Covid. He will do NOTHING about health care. He will do NOTHING about forest fires or climate-related crises. He will bankrupt our agriculture and drain the treasury. And God forbid anything on the international scene heads south. He'll be nuking everything he can.

He tiny little hands are covered in blood. And he likes it. Blood tastes yummy to him. Better than hamberders!

There won't be a point in voting after another four years because the nation will have collapsed.

Even if he checks out and goes to Mar A Lago, his minions will still carry out his will. The only way that’s not happening is if he officially resigns. Even if he wants to, Republicans like McTurtle will talk him out of it. There’s plenty more damage they can do by January.

I think the good news, R35, is that people are now aware that anything can happen whereas in 2016, we really did believe the media and the polls. Hell, Hillary was so sure she had rented our the Javitz and had that whole, elaborate destruction of the glass ceiling celebration planned. I feel like that's always dangerous in life - assuming victory before it happens. This time, people (democrats especially) know not to trust the polls and won't make the same mistake. Voting by mail will be more accessible and young Millenials/ Gen Z is going to need an obligatory "I Voted" instagram or TikTok video to post on election day.

I disagree. I think my generation (very old millennial) will be in their late 30's mid 40's and Gen Xers mid 40's-60's in 2024 that I think it will be overwhelmingly progressive. Society will continue to move to more liberal ideaoly, maybe even more so with a Trump presidency b/c it will be another 4 years of resist, fight, protest, etc. This might be damning, but I really truly believe in the weirdos that are the young gen Z who are now just midway through high school, They are the key to a very liberal and open future going forward.

Trump can’t win with just his base, the morons who drive around with Trump flags flying from their pickup. He needs the suburban vote and while he might retain some of the men, he lost their wives.

The problem I see on election night is the delay in counting the mail in ballots. Some states start counting early—there’s a website somewhere that lists every state’s procedures. But remember in 2018, early returns made it seem like the Rethugs retained the House but ultimately, the Dems took it.

Wrong. He may very well lose, but there will not be a landslide, at least in the Electoral College. We will never ever see the kinds of landslides we saw in 1980, 1984, and 1988 again. The Democrats in those three elections got a TOTAL of 173 electoral votes. Over THREE elections. Trump will exceed that this year with no problem. This is how horrible our country has become. (And all three of the 1980s candidates were FAR superior to Trump in every possible way.)

Biden will win, Democrats will hold the house, and the Senate will end up 50-50 (with Kamela Harris casting tie-breaking votes). Yay! Except...

... rather than do anything useful, like shore up Obamacare to make it as politically-unassailable as Medicare & Social Security, the Democrats will waste 15 months squabbling over insurance vs single-payer, then Medicare available to all vs Medicare for everyone as the only option.

They'll waste their remaining time fighting for a Green New Deal most DEMOCRATS think goes too far, then get wrapped up in an orgy of hearings trying to send some scapegoat proxy -- anyone will do -- to prison on behalf of Trump.

In 2022, the Republicans will take back the House, and gain back a Senate seat. Whatever desperate healthcare-related legislation gets passed at the eleventh hour in the last weeks of the lame-duck House & Senate will be immediately rescinded by the incoming House & Senate in 2023, and it will all have been for nought.

Cynical? Obviously. Inconceivable? Sadly, no.

Oh, and Trump will be running his own streaming TV network, inflaming his base daily, and pushing his own proxy candidates for 2024... Ivanka & Don Jr (themselves likely to end up as bitter political rivals).

Eric runs away from politics, and lives a life of pure cocaine-fueled hedonism on a yacht moored in South Beach. Tiffany gets married, never utters the 'Trump' name again, and disappears to become a normal, non-famous rich person.

R57 - I should rephrase. I don't want boomers to die off, but a lot of very old conservative thinking will go when they do. I think the reason I have so much hope in Gen Z is they are just so out there in their beliefs. Old Millenial/Gen X tend to me more open and accepting parents that the boomers. Get Z is really introducing that concept of non-binary and a lot pf new moms are moving away from the blue/pink decor and going more neutral. These kids seem more fluid in their thinking, ideas, and sexuality. They also will not have experienced some of the privileges that have come with boomer parents (wealth, financial stability) nor some of the down falls (the shaming, the closed mindedness) and younger generations are really dropping religion. I think evangelicals will go with a certain era.

by Anonymousreply 6310/10/2020

2020 is not 2016.

For one, Biden has been around a long time, but has not faced three decades of Fox News consistently and constantly tearing him down. No, the Fox crowd does not like him... but they don't accuse him of killing people, looking the other way when faced with dire consequences (do I need to say the word "Benghazi" here?), deleting emails, and the raft of bogus charges that Republicans will not let go.

Second, one of the missing elements in 2020 that we suffered with in 2016 was the NRA. Let's not pretend that the NRA isn't eyeball-deep in corruption and money laundering, specifically for the Russians. Remember, we have Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell on tape discussing how to hide foreign money in political campaigns via the NRA (and it has remained unindicted because Trump holds the pardon pen, among other reasons). With NY State filing charges against the NRA, it has put them under a microscope unlike any other, which has prevented them from funneling huge sums of foreign cash into Republican coffers. To wit: the Trump campaign is broke. And we may owe Letitia James a great thanks for this part of the dismantling of the Trump regime.

Third, while there is a lot of online chicanery, it is not new like it was in 2016. Things were good under Obama, making it a lot easier for Republicans to paint him and Hillary as something they were not; things are not good under Trump, making it hard for Republicans to paint him with anything other than the utter failure he is. Look at all of the crap they've thrown at Biden, from Hunter/Burisma to Sleepy Joe, and it isn't sticking. The shine is off facebook and all social media. We know better. And they are taking minimal steps to prevent the same kind of fake news, not that their steps will make much a difference, but still...

Fourth, at this point in the 2016 campaigns — just under a month out from election day — 17% of voters were undecided and eventually went for Trump (largely thanks to Comey and the FBI bombshell that was the final nail in the campaign to paint Hillary as corrupt and criminal) . Trump was never over 50% of the vote in 2016. Today, we're at 3% undecided. Biden is nationally at about 52% to Trump's 39%. Biden is up in all of the swing states that handed Trump his victory, and those percentages of undecideds (and in about half the states, the yet-to-vote) are equally as low. Those percentages might be a few points higher or lower, but even assuming that Biden's percentage is high and Trump's low, there are too many votes between them for a last-minute bombshell to alter the outcome... unless the bombshell is nuclear. (Literally.)

There is a reason Trump is pining for Hillary's email scandals and continues to gripe about her lack of prosecution (nevermind that there is no evidence of wrongdoing). There is a reason Trump is trying to go full banana republic authoritarian and get Barr to indict Obama, Hillary and Biden with 3 weeks to go. But there is no there there. Barr knows that should he comply with Trump's demands, the House will impeach him in a matter of minutes. No, he won't be removed, but it will mark Barr as the most corrupt AG in the history of the nation.

Finally, Coronavirus and the administration's inept handling of the crisis, culminating in the double-whammy of Trump contracting it himself and Trump cancelling Covid relief talks abruptly, and taking the blame for that failure. At this point, Pelosi had better wake up and smell the victory and stop trying to push through legislation that will only inure to Trump's benefit. We've waited for 4 month for additional relief; we can wait three more weeks. Besides, the Republicans are now prepping for their role as chief antagonists when Biden tries to do anything big, retrieving their fiscal conservative cloth coats from cold storage.

No, it's not a done deal. Trump could still win, and we must act like Biden is down by 10 points and fight like hell. Time to give Joe some more money.

Even Deplorables are looking at Trump's Hillary/Obama obsession and thinking "WTF? You won the election! What new result do you want?"

Biden is so far ahead in every poll and as R64 noted, there are very few undecided voters at this point.

Not to mention that millions of people have already voted.

I also think Biden's landslide will mean that Republicans will spend the next two years explaining why they were never really Trumpists and how their ideas differed from his.

And this:

After years of holding their tongues, a few Republicans have started to separate themselves from President Trump and his possible political collapse, focusing on his carelessness with the virus.

Why it matters: A senior Republican official told me this is less about shaping this election, and more about preparing for the aftermath.

Most notably, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in Kentucky on Thursday: "I haven't been to the White House since August the 6th."

"I personally didn't feel that they were approaching the protection from this illness in the same way that I thought was appropriate for the Senate [masks and distancing] ... I think we've shown that ... we can function safely.

Also this week, in her sole face-to-face debate, embattled Sen. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.), pressed repeatedly, wouldn't say whether she's proud of her support for Trump, CNN reported.

We will go to bed on November 3rd not sure who won. Many of the battleground states will need to rely upon the absentee ballots (as with the Congressional races in 2018). I expect the absentee votes in these states to be 60-65% for Biden, and he will have enough Electoral Votes by Friday 11/6 for the election to be called. I predict that Wisconsin, Georgia, Florida and Arizona will be the latest results and awaiting paper ballots. PA (blue) and Ohio (red) will be called before midnight Eastern time. We also may not know the final Senate results until Friday.

Trump and his minions will flood the courts with petitions to stop all absentee counts. I foresee the Supremes weighing in to let the counting proceed (possibly denying cert.)

It's going to be messy, loud, and Trump will call upon upon his base to support him. Hopefully the Proud Boys (and the various militias) will not hit the streets.

In reality, the deleted emails were said to have been deleted by her attorneys, who deleted emails having nothing to do with her work. Some of the ones that were revealed back in 2016 were things like recipes and trivial emails to Chelsea. It would be hilarious if he de-classifies all Hillary’s emails and all the deleted ones are about making manicure dates with Chelsea and telling Bill to pick up some eggs on the way home. And a lot of them probably are that.

Realistically, based on the polls (methodology much improved since 2016) it’s looking good for Biden. Trouble is, it all comes down to getting the votes. The media is afraid of making predictions because they don’t want people to get complacent and stay home on Election Day. People have got to vote and for some people, voting takes a lot of effort (work, childcare, transportation, fear, etc.). If all the people that didn’t bother to vote in 2016 show up, it will be massive. Trump’s base makes a lot of noise, but honestly I wonder how powerful they actually are. To win reelection Trump would need to add to his base and he hasn’t done that. He’s alienated just about every group he needs to win.

2020 will look nothing like 2016. First of all, Dump has a record now, and a very bad one at that. The last time, he was free and clear and not tainted with the political baggage that acted like an albatross around Hills neck. That's gone. Dump has one of the worst records - especially with his COVID-19- will- just-go-away plan as evidenced by 200,000+ Americans deaths.

I would also acknowledge the absence of the NRA's deep pockets. The sheer amount of money that was doled out was stupendous. How many no-name Repugs will make it from the bottom up with little to no funding?

Then there's Orangeman's FAKE FAT TAX RETURNS. How many voters do you think will give him a pass on that? Also, there will be an almost never ending stream of Dump fuckery splashed across headlines every week for...how long? Weeks? Maybe months? There's an abundance of illegal and oftentimes lurid undertakings that seems to shed itself like an insipid virus from this man's hole and those surrounding him. Anyone notice that there's been a steady drip of scandalous tidbits each week in the press? I'm hoping it will crescendo around Nov. 3rd and continue from there as Fatass makes an even bigger ass of himself.

Look....there's hope for us out there and it includes all the shitty, unconscionable things Dump committed for years, if not all his life: His fake SAT/GRE scores? His association with Epstein? There's another woman out there who is building a rape case against him. There's tons of shit out there. And each one is standing in line awaiting its day in the sun. I'm hoping the Dems can carry on for the next three weeks. In the end and in the final analysis of it all, it will be Dump himself who's his worst enemy. All we have to do is let him be himself.

The pardon thing has to do with Federal R149 which has a lot more teeth that could really put Trump away. State crimes are probably easier to batter with a army of lawyers. Their funds and access to top secret violations is a lot more limited. The Fed has unlimited resources the state of NY does not. That's probably why he would consider parading himself. Wipe 50% of the post presidency lawsuits off the map.

He still could end up in jail, but I doubt it. That fucker seems to get away with everything. At lease he "good name" will be forever ruined and he will be involved in endless legal battles. Hopefully so much so he wont have time to keep shit going with the deplorables.

Donald Trump is in zero danger of actual prison, ever, for one very pragmatic reason: imprisoning him would be a logistical nightmare. NO state wants to bear the responsibility (or expense) of simultaneously imprisoning AND coordinating the Secret Service protection of a former president (whose protection orders would include protecting him from guards).

NO prison guard will want to go anywhere near a nasty, argumentative, uncooperative prisoner with his own federal bodyguards, because they'd routinely be put into IMPOSSIBLE situations with fundamentally conflicting daily demands. And I believe their unions would uncompromisingly back them up.

BEST case, a state like New York might sentence Trump to house arrest & cut a deal with the Secret Service to simultaneously protect the former president AND enforce its terms. Or better, confine him to a de-luxurified wing or guesthouse at Mar-a-Lago... with his cronies as roommates tasked with keeping him safe & alive, motivated by threats to send them to REAL prisons once he's gone).

No, the only thing anyone can really do to punish Trump would be impoverishment. And even then, it'll have to be for blatant, intentional, serious crimes that don't "smell" like political retribution. Trump might aspire to being a tinpot dictator, but we can't allow him to corrupt our political system forever by normalizing post-presidential petty prosecution.

Remember, anything Democrats can do to Trump, Republicans can and will use as an excuse to do against Biden & others at the first possible opportunity.

Whenever and wherever Trump dies, the conspiracy nuts will claim Hillary killed him.

Even if she herself is already dead.

I agree with what R151 said. Maybe the best way to deal with Trump would be to arrest and convict his grifter kids and cronies. As they get picked off one by one, he would probably do nothing to help them, saying "I don't know Ivanka and Jarrod ... yes, she's my daughter and all that, but I don't know anything about her."

R151. Are you even for real? Seriously, what restraint did these traitorous Repugs display? NONE, I reapeat NONE. It's even captured on tape! Lindz went back on his word on the air in 2016 and then ceremonially flipped us the bird. I say no restraint. The Dems need to shut the door on them once and for all and hermetically seal that shit closed. I say raise the the number of Supremes, add the 2 more states and get rid of the electoral college. Do this in just 2 weeks! Then swiftly open up congressional investigations on a slew of these fucks, using the unredacted Mueller Report, bring him to testify how Fat Fuck Barr interfered and re-open every grand jury investigations that Fat Fuck closed down.

I'm only just beginning with bringing this shat......!

Upping the number of Supreme Court Justices is a HUGE lift. Like Obama’s effort to get health care enacted it would expend the lion’s share of Biden’s (and his Democratic senate’s) first two years. Given Covid, the economy and all the other damage Trump has wreaked, and the fact that two other Justices (one liberal, one conservative) are itching to resign, there are more productive things Biden could do.

That's BS. He can walk and chew gum at the same time. He plans on putting together a big team who ill do the Lyon share of the work. He's not a micro manager. He could create a different team for each problem if he wants. Sky is the limit. And no, judges need toe be added to re-balance the court. Which was stacked by Republicans. It wont be that hard IF the Democrats get both House and Senate. We live in a much more different time than Obama. Trump shit all over norms and changed that forever.

Ah, OK

Yes, Biden needs to hammer the voting message. The only way the transition of power from Cheetolini to him is less messy is for Biden to win by a landslide.

[quote] Lyon share

Before you all "Oh Dear" R161, this is a French expression "part de Lyon" that came about because during the Napoleonic Wars, regiments from Lyon and surrounding regions were often on the front lines and thus took a majority of the casualties. Napoleon frequently urged other regiments to do "le part de Lyon" as a way of rallying the troops.

This thread should've been over with at R1.

He's probably already arranged how he'll leave the country and where he'll be hiding out for the rest of his 3-4 years of life.

Surely even his allies understand that he is not to be trusted after he's president, whenever that may be? He's a big mouth who will sell any information he got his grubby little mitts on. How are people so short sighted as to disregard that?

If someone asked any of the Trumps - anyone of them- what do you do? What would their response be?

For some reason I was thinking that last night.

Obama took two years to pass Obamacare because there was a sense of decorum that they observed. Also, Dems needed McCain's vote to pass it. Those two niceties have been savagely slayed by the likes of McConnell and Graham. That line has been crossed. Once again, for added effect: THAT LINE (of civility) HAS BEEN CROSSED!! We need to bring it to those ReFucktards. Not simply for revenge, but to demonstrate to Americans that there are consequences for abhorrent behavior. There is accountability. We need to send these miscreants to jail for outright perjury and ignoring valid subpoenas.

EVERYONE IS EQUAL UNDER THE LAW.
