    Most elected officials can be recalled in the US, but the laws are different in every state. California has a pretty low bar for establishing a recall election of the Governor. Basically, the Republicans played off the frustrations of people who had to endure a fairly strict covid lockdown in California and were able to gather enough signatures to get a recall election. It is not the first time that there has been a recall election in California, and in fact that is how Schwarzenegger got elected. But this recall was doomed to fail and a complete waste of resources and time.

    I did Google it but maybe I asked the wrong question.
    The republicans want to tarnish the incumbent so they have something to use against him if he decides to run for POTUS.

    Any elected CA official can face a recall election if they can get 12% of the signatures of the last election.

    It isn't difficult to get that sort of audience out of stupid fucking trumpanzees.

    Amazingly his opponent had his "the election was stolen" website up before voting even started.

    Come on Darwin, work harder.

    ...and vice versa, isn't it a purpose of the 2-party country?

    Not so sure about that.

    Parodying the worst leader since Hitler might well have been pretty tough.

    You can imagine how much the fat orange turd and his idiot love child were looking forward to getting some publicity on 9/11.

    Both too stupid to realise even they had crossed the line, the pair of c u n t s.

    All the abuse came before and nary a mention of it afterwards.

    History will record what a fucking scumbag piece of shit the Americans elected in 2016.

    Biden dishes his fair share up too with falling asleep, clearly being unable to speak without assistance, and forever forgetting shit he should remember! I don't have any dog in the slapstick comedy fight known as American politics but am still shaking my head in disbelief that out of about 350 million people, that pair of fucking imbeciles was the very best pair of politicians they could come up with to have to chose between!

    To cherry pick minor mistakes of Biden in order to put him on the same level as Trump is absurd. Trump was the most egregious POTUS ever who was only stopped by the law, and his administration was nothing more than a crime syndicate. Biden, who like anyone else is not infallible, is no wanna-be dictator but instead works with a team of professionals who follow the law and constitution whether we like their policies or not.

    Longtime GOP operatives charged with funneling Russian nationalís money to Trump, RNC

    Crooks...

    Two veteran Republican campaign operatives — including one who got a pardon from then-President Donald Trump one month before he left office — are charged in a new federal indictment with funneling $25,000 from a Russian national into the Trump campaign in 2016.

    Jesse Benton, 43, and Doug Wead, 75, made brief appearances Monday at a video hearing in U.S. District Court in Washington, pleading not guilty to six felony charges including facilitating a campaign contribution by a foreign national, acting as a straw donor and causing the filing of false campaign finance reports.

    The grand jury indictment alleges that Benton and Wead worked together to accept $100,000 from an unidentified Russian national in order to get the foreigner a meeting with then-candidate Trump at a fundraiser in Philadelphia on Sept. 22, 2016.

    Neither Trump nor his campaign are mentioned by name in the indictment, but details in the 19-page document make clear that the scheme involved seeking the donation in connection with the Trump event and an opportunity to get face to face with him.

    For example, the indictment’s reference to a $25,000 donation on Oct. 27, 2016, to a political committee by Benton — allegedly to cover up the foreign source of the money — lines up with a donation of the same size and date to Trump’s political committee attributed to a “Jesse Bentor,” which prosecutors said is a garbling of Benton’s name.

    There is no indication in the indictment that Trump or his campaign aides were aware that the money originated with the Russian donor. The charges say that Benton and Wead “concealed” the arrangement from Trump, and that part of the scheme involved getting the political committees to “unwittingly” file reports indicating that Benton was actually the source of the funds.

    The indictment suggests that Benton and Wead hoped to make money from the scheme and did — taking $100,000 from the Russian, but paying only $25,000 to Trump Victory, a joint venture between the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee.

    Benton, a veteran of Kentucky and presidential politics, had previously faced federal campaign finance charges for payments to a key Iowa state lawmaker who switched endorsements from Michelle Bachman to Ron Paul in the 2012 presidential GOP primary. Trump, just before leaving office, pardoned Benton for the crimes he was convicted of. Benton is also an in-law and former adviser to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who is Ron Paul’s son. Benton previously led Sen. Mitch McConnell’s 2014 reelection campaign before stepping down amid legal scrutiny.

    In pardoning Benton and another associate, Trump indicated that the move had the support of Rand Paul and former FEC Chair Lee Goodman.

    The new indictment alleges that Benton was carrying out the foreign-donation scheme in the days just before and after he was sentenced to two years’ probation on the Iowa-related campaign finance case.

    Wead is a conservative commentator and activist who co-authored a book with then-Vice President George H.W. Bush, published just before Bush became president in 1989. Wead also enjoyed close access to the Trump White House during his presidency.

    Wead is represented in the case by two former attorneys for Trump when he was president, Jay Sekulow and Jane Raskin.

    Asked about the charges, Sekulow said in a statement: “Doug Wead is a respected author and supporter of charitable causes. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges and will continue to respond appropriately in court.”

    The case against Benton and Wead has been assigned to Judge Trevor McFadden, a Trump appointee.

    Besides clearly having trouble putting a coherent sentence together, being shielded from doing 1 on 1 interviews or even having to answer questions on the fly, and falling asleep? It's 100 times better than Trump still being there of course, but surely there's politicians over there on both sides that people could look at and listen to and be immediately impressed with what they see?

    I think Biden won because a large percentage of American voters couldn't stand seeing Trump turn the Presidency and White House into his own ego-stroking reality TV show any longer, not because they looked at Biden and thought hey look at this guy, he's really switched on. Just my opinion..

    Of course, that is the reason. I was not a fan of voting for Biden, but I did because he is a million times better than that orange turd criminal we were stuck with for four years.

    You sound like you've been watching too much Fox News again. If it's laughs you're after, Comedy Central would be a better choice.

    ^I don't watch Fox news or CNN, unless American politics and the associated mudslinging are of interest there's nothing being aired on either network worth watching or knowing and they're equally guilty of being not much more than the play-things of 2 very wealthy old cvnts jostling for advertising revenue and viewer numbers bragging rights. But, other networks around the world that actually show world news do show brief clips of what American President's are up to and if you're going to tell me Biden is in the same league as someone like Obama when it comes to projecting an air of intelligence and being able to think on the run without falling asleep, falling up stairs, and showing typical traits of being that age, maybe it's you that needs to stop watching CNN.

    It speaks volumes that he's still a better choice than Trump though, that's my point.

    ^So you're saying Biden could sit down to a one on one with a hostile interviewer and not only come away looking highly intelligent, but could also make the interviewer look like an idiot. I saw guys like Clinton and Obama do just that regularly, Biden could too?

    ^I don't watch soccer either, but know the teams and some players. Why in the name of fuck would a non American watch those channels? To see what's happening around the world that's newsworthy isn't the correct answer.
