As defeats pile up, Trump tries to delay vote count in last-ditch attempt to cast doubt on Biden victory
Rudolph W. Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, has told associates his ambition is to stall the vote certification in an effort to have GOP lawmakers pick electors, a outcome that appears unattainable.

    Trump the Chump. I just answered his latest tweet. Just get your proof into court. Be a nice idea if you stopped begging for money and used what you have for what it was intended. Do right by your followers if this money is for 2024. Of course such a rich man could pay it himself.
    How does he have so much time for tweeting and now he has Jnr at it too. Even judges are getting fed up with these antics now.

      Hello David. Yes it is a shame he is not working on the issues we have to deal with in the world, but he can not be bothered doing anything that doesn’t benefit himself in someway. He is grifting for as much money as he can before he is thrown out of the office. He has no proof, and openly says he doesn’t care about what the people want or how they voted, he wants the prize and will destroy the country to get it. He is a selfish spoiled kid who never grew up. Hugs

    Donald, the Queen of Hearts, is getting very angry. As predicted many months ago, we knew Trump would resort to any trick he could to not lose. It was not a stretch when I wrote in September “Take it to the bank – the president will sue to avoid losing.” Bill Maher has said for well over a year, if Trump loses, he will not leave. John Oliver said about a year ago, Trump will have to be dragged out of the White House. Trump has very rarely been accountable or responsible. But, the scariest quote is from his niece, who said her uncle “will burn everything down to avoid losing.” Keith

      Hello Keith. What worries me more than him not leaving, because he will leave, is what he leaves behind. What damage he does before he leaves. He is trying to create as many problems for Biden as possible while doing as much damage to Biden’s presidency as he can. He is trying to make it so his followers wont do anything that Biden wants, that the Republicans in congress will fight tooth and nail every program and bill Biden tries to do. He wants to make Biden fail. And we know as tRump is a vindictive grudge holding asshole he will use all the media tools he can get to harass Biden once Biden takes office. Hugs

        He’s doing more damage than just making it difficult for Biden … his actions related to military withdrawals is an example. And there are several others that the news media has been reporting on.

          Hello Nan. Very true. I think tRump has the idea that he is owed the presidency simply because he wants it ( the story of his wealthy life he is owed anything he desires ) but if he is blocked from getting it his rage lets him feel it is Ok to destroy what he can not have in anyway possible. Again a terrifying thing he is the US president. Hugs

    Scottie, some damage has already been done. He has sown seeds of doubt. He will complain for four years that he was cheated. He got fewer votes. He lost. A real adult would admit that and concede. He will do neither. He will say something petulant like, “I was cheated, but they won’t let me prove it, so I will leave like I am supposed to.” Keith

      Scottie, I saw this headline to an article in The Hill today. Keith

      “Wisconsin election official: We shouldn’t water Trump’s ‘plant of baloney’”

        Hello Keith. I agree, it is time to understand this is a temper tantrum of a kid who thinks just because he wants something it must happen. We need to stop letting chew at the fringe of our democracy. All they are doing at this point is throwing dirt all over democracy. Hugs

      Hello Keith. I think it is worse than that now. He has called the people responsible for certifying elections trying to get them to not do that. He has invited Republican law makers from the states to the White House to get them to ignore the votes and give the election to him. tRump has with the consent of the Republicans openly interfered with the election process in the states. That is a crime, right? Would it be tolerated from anyone else? How badly would the Republicans scream if Biden was doing this? Keith this is beyond politics now, it is a direct assault on our system of democracy. Hugs
