    I am surprise you have not kept up with your holly scriptures studies.
    "And the Lord spoke, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to 30,000, no more, no less. 30,000 shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be 30,000. 10,000 shalt thou not count, neither count 20.000, excepting that thou then proceed to 30,000. 50.000 is right out. Once the number 30.000, being the third number, be reached, then lobbeth thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in My sight, shall be snuff it. "
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.

    I wish he had the Senate, and maybe he will.
    That is a big maybe, There is a reason why so many incumbents get re-elected. Not only do they have the power of the office to facilitate fund raising, and doll out favors in exchange for support, gerrymandering has distorted the electoral landscape making it virtually impossible for challengers to succeed.
    I am sure I am not saying nothing that most of you don't already know.
    - Simply having trump out of the Whitehouse is a tremendous win for the American people and the world IMO.
    A president Pence or a president Romney as much as I disagree with their politics would had been preferable to trump .\
    A President Biden is a thousand percent better. As already said by others, Most of what trump has done has been via Executive Order and can easily be reversed. In addition, alliances can be rebuild and straighten, our reputation begin to be repaired, Iran be brought back in the fold. Climate change addressed, World Health multilaterally managed. etc
    I am excited by the prospects.

    Don't get your hopes up and don't sip on the Kool-Aid yet.
    Give 'im a couple of years and then see where you stand.
    It might be nice/warm and fuzzy now with all the surface fanfare and whatnot - and what might be, etc.
    Possibilities that it will transform into some positive.....or perhaps it'll fall into the same old abyss that hampers the American culture. Especially as such applies to foreign policy.

    Even I'll give the highly qualified/veteran politician/nice guy a chance and kudos - hoping that he does right by the people and not the opposite.
    I'll wish him and his talented team the best...but still will have suspicions.

    Remembering that old Joe is Democratic-Conservative and firmly embedded in traditional Establishment/Corporatist/Military Complex circles, as is the history of the Presidency.

    Nonetheless, we all can most certainly agree that he is ten fold better than that goon that sits in the WH presently.

    Good Luck Joe. Don't do your country wrong. It's about the people.

    That's the positive thing. Even with the Republican party in his pocket beyond reason he was not able to get the judiciary, even judges appointed under his rule, to break the law in his favor. Same, with a few temporary exceptions, the Republican election staff did what they were supposed to do under the constitution and the election laws.

    And it starts

    ---

    Trump pardons Michael Flynn, former national security advisor who admitted lying to FBI



    Key Points

    • President Donald Trump said that he had pardoned Michael Flynn, his first national security advisor, who had pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents.
    • The pardon came before a judge had ruled on a motion by the U.S. Justice Department to dismiss the case and to undo Flynn’s guilty plea for making false statements to agents about the nature of his conversations with Russia’s ambassador to the United States.
    • “It is my Great Honor to announce that General Michael T. Flynn has been granted a Full Pardon. Congratulations to @GenFlynn and his wonderful family, I know you will now have a truly fantastic Thanksgiving!,” Trump said in a tweet.

    ^^Unbelievable. Trump’s staffers obviously having a last stab at him by putting that 300lb tub of lard behind a tiny ‘desk.’ And, he isn’t bright enough to know how silly he will look.

    Donald Trump furious with Twitter as #diaperdon trends

    Donald Trump has claimed that a law protecting Twitter from liability over its users’ post must be scrapped due to “national security” fears as he was mocked online with the hashtag #diaperdon.


    The outgoing US President called for Section 230, which protects website publishers from liability for third-party content under US law, to be “immediately terminated” after claiming that Twitter was fabricating its trends to solely portray “negative stuff”.


    The president's outburst came as the term #diaperdon trended on Twitter. The term went viral as pictures were shared of the President sitting at a small desk during last night’s White House press conference.


    “Twitter is sending out totally false “Trends” that have absolutely nothing to do with what is really trending in the world,” he wrote.

    "They make it up, and only negative “stuff”. Same thing will happen to Twitter as is happening to @FoxNews daytime. Also, big Conservative discrimination!"

    He added in a second tweet: "For purposes of National Security, Section 230 must be immediately terminated!!!"

    His tweets prompted even more reaction, with the term becoming the number one trend in several countries around the world.


    Meanwhile, Mr Trump said that he will leave the White House if the Electoral College formalises President-Elect Joe Biden's victory — even as he insisted such a decision would be a "mistake".

    "Certainly I will. But you know that," Mr Trump said Thursday when asked whether he would vacate the building, allowing a peaceful transition of power in January.


    However, Mr Trump — taking questions for the first time since Election Day — insisted that "a lot of things" would happen between now and then that might alter the results.


    "This has a long way to go," Mr Trump said.

    The outgoing President claimed, despite the results, that this may not be his last Thanksgiving at the White House. He told reporters that there had been "massive fraud," even though state officials and international observers have said no evidence of that exists and Trump's campaign has repeatedly failed in court.


    The Trump administration has already given the green light for a formal transition to get underway. Although Mr Trump took issue with Mr Biden moving forward.


    "I think it's not right that he's trying to pick a Cabinet," Me Trump said, even though officials from both teams are already working together to get the Biden team up to speed.


    All states must certify their results before the Electoral College meets on December 14, and any challenge to the results must be resolved by December 8. States have already begun that process, including Michigan, where Mr Trump and his allies tried and failed to delay the process, and Georgia and Pennsylvania.


    Vote certification at the local and state level is typically a ministerial task that gets little notice, but that changed this year with Mr Trump's refusal to concede and his unprecedented attempts to overturn the results of the election through a fusillade of legal challenges and attempts to manipulate the certification process in battleground states he lost.


    Mr Biden won by wide margins in both the Electoral College and popular vote, where he received nearly 80 million votes, a record.

    Diaper don

    Fuck that just cracks me up.
    Here's another


    ‘Mini desk. Tiny hands. Small soul’: Trump mocked for giving speech at little table
    #DiaperDon trends on Twitter after outgoing president’s furniture steals limelight


    For a US president obsessed by size – his hands, his wealth, his crowds – Donald Trump made something of a bold U-turn on Thursday night by addressing the country from a desk seemingly designed for a leprechaun.


    Trump said on Thursday he would leave the White House if the electoral college votes for the Democratic president-elect, Joe Biden – the closest he has come to admitting defeat – but his furniture stole the limelight.


    While he harangued reporters and repeated unfounded allegations of electoral fraud, the internet zeroed in on his unusually small desk. Some called it symbolic of Trump’s diminished stature, some wondered if it was photoshopped (it wasn’t), most just laughed.


    The actor Mark Hamill tweeted: “Maybe if you behave yourself, stop lying to undermine a fair election & start thinking of what’s good for the country instead of whining about how unfairly you are treated, you’ll be invited to sit at the big boy’s table.”


    The hashtag #DiaperDon swiftly trended on Twitter, with people mocking the president as an infant banished to the children’s table for Thanksgiving.


    May this be how we remember the Trump presidency: a baby at his tiny little desk throwing a tantrum pic.twitter.com/T26DjF1fL4


    — Parker Molloy (@ParkerMolloy) November 27, 2020
    “Thought this pic was photoshopped, but nope, just hilariously symbolic! Mini desk. Tiny hands. Infinitesimally small soul,” tweeted Adam Lasnik.


    I still can’t quite believe this happened today.
    Whoever suggested that desk … thank you.#tinydesk #TinyDeskDonald https://twitter.com/parkermolloy/status/1332126446886809602 pic.twitter.com/xKuU0DVjUD


    — Noah Maher (@noahsparc) November 27, 2020
    Trump later sent a blizzard of tweets accusing the media of misreporting his comments and Twitter of making up “negative stuff” for its trending section.
