One up side of this shit show is that we get to see Trump losing over and over.

Looks like the GSA has finally acknowledged Biden and has released the funds and access so that Biden can begin the transition in earnest.

Sorry the "mainstream media" aren't really covering this very well. Is Trump's team really holding a meeting in a hotel and trying to dress it up as an official state legislature meeting? It just sounds bat shit crazy.

P.s. I'll say hello properly in another thread!

Micah/Jake - curious where you guys stand after the comments from Barr and the insanity being spewed by Trump still at this point.  Trying to pre-pardon his family members (which is just an admission of guilt), still saying there was massive fraud in the election, still dividing the country and inciting the insanity and violence against innocent officials.  When does it stop?  He's randomly firing anyone that disagrees with him.  Do you still support this guy?

not sure if I said this before, but, since this is a safe space:  I didn't vote this year.  First time in 23-years.  Just didn't even bother. It was a regular Tuesday. Didn't even check the news that night.  And you know what? it felt great!

Micah, you could also just say you didn't vote for Trump. Sounds more civic than I didn't vote. ;)

Want to give you some shit for it but honestly, I can understand why you felt that way.  So, no hate.

So just cleaning up loose ends... Final electoral college: 306-232 (same as 2016 if you ignore faithless electors).



Popular vote count:
Biden: 81,283,495
Trump: 74,223,753

Biden wins popular vote by 7 million votes, or 4.5 percentage points.

One way this election was just a little closer than 2016 was in the minimum number of votes that would have to change for Clinton to win (~78k) versus the minimum for Trump to have won (~65k) in the electoral college.

Of course 2020 elections aren't totally over. Control of the Senate is still up in the air depending on the election in Georgia happening now.

You'd think it would have ended by now but sadly, there's still Jan 6th and 20th left so until then I guess we have to keep dealing with all of this.

I really hate the fucking main stream media. I just watched a bunch of news clips from various sources about trump challenging the "covid-19 relief" bill. Every single one only mentioned that trump wants $2K instead of $600 and they don't mention any other reasons and quickly go into who he's pardoned today.

In fact, based on his speech, he wants government to cut all the pork out of the bill and instead of spending hundreds of millions on foreign aid and other pet projects to spend it on the american people.

I wonder how you can disagree with his stance?
