Trump Foot Soldiers Get Marching Orders: Counting Ballots Is Now ‘Stealing’ The Election! | Talking Points Memo

They can screech and whine all they want and it changes nothing.

Fuck them.

For folks who claim to revere the nations history and norms they’re quite ignorant. Mail in ballots have been used since the civil war. Then again they’re still arguing over who was on the right side of it.

This predictable bullshit will not work. Biden is going to be president, Trump is not.

Meanwhile we wait to see what Judge Sullivan does with DeJoy.

And the apprehension if Sullivan jails DeJoy for contempt Trump will pardon him…

As much as I would like to respond to these traitors with soaring rhetoric, everything in me really just wants to give each of them the wedgie of their lives. Maybe because they’re spoiled, ear-splitting children all of them.

What kind of a mental leap does it take to believe that a ballot that hasn’t yet been counted on Election Day is somehow bogus? Don’t these people know how elections work?

Well, obviously not. What am I saying? It’s as if none of them has ever voted before.

The good thing is that the states are ignoring this nonsense and continuing to count…that needs to continue until all of the ballots are counted. There’s no excuse to say otherwise…it’s about as anti-American as it gets to say that ballots should not be counted.

It’s very disturbing that so much of the nation went for Trump, and that they are completely fine with him and Republicans trashing everything that the nation stands for. I have no idea how that gets fixed, or if it does…the nation looks like it will be ungovernable.

If Trump loses, these morons have no where to GO…of course, they are sucking at the Golden Throne. MAYBE we can finally get rid of Newt…

Not listening

But every American should be listening to Emmett Sullivan, today.

One could make a convincing case that Trump never actually WAS a president. More like the gibbon in chief. Ronald Reagan, at least, knew how to play a US President (and fairly competently, too). Trump has never been more than a failed reality show character, who required heavy editing to even be presentable.

This just in!

CINCINNATI —In an early-morning victory statement that took many in the N.F.L. by surprise, the Cincinnati Bengals have declared themselves the winners of next February’s Super Bowl.

The declaration of victory seemed designed to stir controversy, in no small part because sixty minutes of the sixty-minute-long contest have yet to be played.

But the Bengals remained defiant, arguing that no touchdowns, extra points, field goals, or safeties scored after their announcement should count.

“As far as we’re concerned, we’ve already won,” the Bengals said.

You’ve been Borowitzed!

Tens or hundreds of thousands of ballots not delivered. On-time delivery rates of 65-75% in swing states, rather than pre-DeJoy rates of 95%. Ignoring specific and explicit Court orders.

I think we can call bullshit.

And shenanigans.

“Does anyone else find it strange that it’s only Democrat strongholds like Philadelphia, Milwaukee, and Detroit that are having massive delays counting their votes?” - Charlie Kirk, Trump apologist.

No asshole, it’s not “strange” - in fact, election officials in PA and other states begged Republican legislators to allow processing of mail ballots before Election Day - they refused…and now you want to complain “It’s taking too long”???
