    As expected, the most prominent demagogue to have held the post of POTUS claims, without any evidence, that he was a victim of electoral fraud on a national scale.

    Will Biden have to call in the army to kick him out?

    Trump won't let go until he unleashes a civil war.

    It sounded a lot like a concession speech. Bye bye birdy.

    Only FaUX carried Dirty Donnie the Superspreader crying fraud about mail in ballots WITHOUT ANY EVIDENCE ! ABC, CBS and NBC cut away from his propaganda.....and rightly so.

    Total embarrassment. Dirty Donnie supporters will be hiding in the closet for weeks.

    Or they cut away to suppress it? It’s what they always do to hide information. Don’t show BLM rioters rioting, so you can blame White supremacists. Don’t show Trump actually condemning white supremacy, only show the sentence talking about “fine people”, then fill in what you want people to think.

    It’s what’s been happening for 4 yrs. But he is crying a bit.

    America is really lucky things aren't the other way around...

    There wouldn't be a vehicle to make it through the night without being set on fire.

    If he loses, he'll probably never give a concession speech. He'll continue peddling braindead conspiracy theories to anyone vapid enough to mindless swallow them. However, I don't buy that he will have to be removed by force.

    Sad for him, all his BS claims will fail in court.
    Why? They require some actual proof and not just claims on twitter or Facebook

    CNN covered it in full. I've been listening to their feed on the website cover the election results.

    They astutely pointed out how Trump comes out and decries the mass fraud taking place to steal the election on one hand, and on the other talks about how great the GOP did in the Senate and House races. So apparently all these people committing fraud in all these states decided to commit fraud to cause Trump to lose the WH, but also to keep republicans in control of the Senate, and make gains in the house. Except Arizona though - no fraud there. Just legal ballot counting.

    Every election has fraud. Our nation is too big for there not to be any. Usually theres a clear enough winner that the fraud couldn't have mattered. But when its this close...

    Much investigation is warranted if our voting system is to retain any trust. If our voting system loses trust, we're all gonna have a bad time.

    Trump was pretty much alone when he declared "they spied on my campaign." Guess what?? He was right!! It won't be a Civil War......it will be a quashing of a insurrection!

    Trump is going to cry and pout about it for years to come. McConnell and Rubio will set him straight. Looks like Biden has AZ now and about to get NV, seems he will win by the hair if his chinny-chin-chin !!!!

    I get the urge to want to scrutinize everything to make 100% certain there wasn't fraud. But on the other hand, we have a POTUS who has been for month (years really if you count what he said about the 2016 election), who has been decrying mass voter fraud. He has been talking for months about a rigged election before the election. He does this to a base that has a persistent ~87% approval of himself. What kind of effect do you think this has upon the confidence in our voting system?

    I think it would be fair for him to come out and say something like:

    Unfortunately, that just never happens.

    From a personal perspective (though I suspect its a lot more than just mine), such a statement is just meaningless words. I want to hear what is being done- who is investigating, how are they investigating, what did they find.

    It would certainly be fair for him to say what you suggested, but I don't think it would help much...

    I think the problem I have though is that I see him come up and give a press conference, making claims of voter fraud across multiple states that would have to take place in multiple counties per state. Then I see someone like yourself reply with:

    What exactly did you see in his press conference that instilled that trust? If his lawsuits fail to overturn the verdict we are seeing play out in the vote tallies, will you have greater confidence in our voting system, or less?

    Im not sure what you mean by 'fail to overturn the verdict.' Im saying the lawsuits are necessary to preserve trust in the system. If they are dismissed without any investigation, I will lose trust in the system. If they are dismissed after an investigation reveals they were baseless (or, of course, if an investigation finds proof of fraud and leads to reversing it), then the trust I have will be preserved, and possibly bolstered.

    You know full well that this will not be the case. If the law suits are dismissed, Trump and his fans will just move the goalpost and claim that Dem activist judges stole the election from him.

    Unreal!

    Trump fans, are you proud of what you have unleashed on the nation and voted for twice? Are you proud of the lies for political gain? Are you proud of tearing down our institutions by sowing the distrust? Are you proud of the self serving pettiness and whining?

    Lawsuits sure, but what he’s doing is terrible for our democratic system. Baseless claims of fraud, so baseless even the post called him out, are dangerous

    They’re fully committed to the ends justifying the means. It’s that or....I can’t tell you without getting banned.
