The former New York mayor has been promising to provide the president with evidence of voter fraud but has produced little, including during a press conference he held Saturday in the parking lot of a small Philadelphia landscaping company next to an adult bookstore.

I think it's great that the Republicans support small businesses like this. He could have booked the Four Seasons Hotel for the press conference, but instead booked the parking lot of the Four Seasons Landscape Gardening company in a scuzzy suburb, next to a porn shop.

I also congratulate the owner of Four Seasons Landscape Gardening for seizing the opportunity to accept payment from the Trump team and not suggest that they had possibly telephoned the wrong number.

Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee have bombarded supporters with impassioned pleas for cash, raking in tens of millions of dollars since Tuesday

Trump claimed to earn $400m a year. Couldn't he fund these absurd cases himself?

That Lindsey Graham is creepy.

How he keeps getting elected bewilders me.

Trump considers how to keep up fight

And by 'keeping up the fight' he continues to further divide the nation.

Trump will go down in history as the most divisive politician ever, and as the politician responsible for the most deaths of American citizens. Covid45 deaths continue to increase while Trump plays golf. On the taxpayer's dime while continuing to see his personal income grow.

Trump will never admit defeat and for anyone to even think he would ever exit "gracefully" is being delusional, to be blunt. There are now reports that he won't even attend the inauguration ceremony, which I personally believe he will not and instead be playing golf. A fitting end to someone that never respected anything but himself.

Trump considers how to keep up fight

"Fight" implies there is a chance of victory. What we're witnessing is a tantrum: a spoiled child flailing on the floor of the grocery store, swinging its fists and screaming themselves hoarse. Nothing will change. He's done. Finished. All over, but the cryin'. He knows it, so he's going to wail and gnash his teeth in a way that won't actually affect the outcome, but will at least prove a minor annoyance to his opponents. But, like the parent of a tantrum-ing child, the adults in Washington will ignore him, drag him along, and he'll eventually give up.

December 14th is the date electors are designated by state legislatures. Mostly republican controlled and Trump is on record advising them to consider the legitimacy of the vote.

electors are designated by state legislatures. Mostly republican controlled 

The US Constitution does not allow state legislatures to willy nilly change their electors once their system is already in place.

I wonder if Trump and his supporters are also rejecting the fact that they picked up seats in the House and kept control of the Senate (for now).

Unpresidented.

Good riddance.

President Donald Trump never admits defeat.

That is just hilarious.

trump run businesses filed for bankruptcy 6 times!!!!

He ran a casino to the ground, how is that winning?

trump lost more money than any other American in the 1980s and 1990s.

He is used to losing, he’s done that most of his life.

Winning the 2016 elections was an aberration!!!

You notice the article with Trump in the title has much more hits than the ones solely about Biden. The mainstream media may not survive without Trump for those who voted for Biden out of spite which was probably most people. There is no way Biden is more popular than Obama in 2008.

Enjoy the White House now trump, you won’t be allowed back inside next year, it’s forbiden.

Personally I’m looking forward to watching Trump being forcibly removed from the White House by the military. That should be a show!

He doesn’t need to be. He only needs to be more popular than Trump in 2020... and he is.

Well, two reasons. And it has nothing to do with the media, itself. 1 is that Biden won the election and transition usually isn't that big of news. 2, and more importantly, Trump is maintaining a line of confrontation and lies with American democracy. It's important for many of us to rid ourselves of fascism, and it is quite obvious Trump and his followers are still attempting to wrong America.

In essence, when we read of Biden, we don't think it's disingenuous. With Trump, it usually, and in the case of not conceding, is disingenuous, and downright an act of a traitor to the United States of America.

Joe Biden wants to heal America. Any decent person would wish him luck. You would imagine so, anyway.

Donald Trump, on the other hand, wants to keep the divisions in American society open. He wants to scratch at the sores, keep the wounds festering. Millions of his followers will go along with him on that. We've seen and heard it already. For Trump himself, unlike his followers, it's not really an ideological difference of opinion. It's all about his own wounded ego and the thwarting of his plans for the gratification of that ego.

Still, now is a time for optimism. And vigilance. Maybe once Trump is removed, he'll gradually fade into irrelevance. I dunno. I wish I could believe that.

It is so Republican to believe moving the goalposts concerning the election process is the right thing to do.

What's so ridiculous is they do this stuff, then will accuse others of doing something they are doing, and more so, will further exacerbate that idea by saying only the other side can do something like that.

The hypocrisy and manipulative behavior is so bad, if it was a kid in a school, he'd get kicked out for the lies and deceit.

He doesn't have to consider anything. The legal Recount process and Ballot verifications has started and and there is no confusion about where to go next... The next President won't be decided until this is over.

Apparently Jared wants trump to concede, but doesn't have the courage to tell him.

The trump team has neither brains nor courage, no wonder they achieved nothing in 4 years!!!

@ulysses

who does have the courage to tell him the truth ?

I'm sure all his staff are doing junken to decide the winner (loser)

“Trump has not lost,” declared South Carolina Sen Lindsey Graham

Anybody who knows anything about this corrupt creepy cracker from South Carolina can dismiss every word he utters as debased coinage that nobody with a shred of respect for truth and honor can swallow. South Carolinians will one day be shamed and regret their election of the mountebank who succeeded to the seat of racist bigot and hypocrite, Strom Thurmond.

12 ( +13 / -1 )

Well if he does finally give up on the election he can always go back to scamming hard working Americans out of their money with fake universities.

Because nothing says, "I care about my base" than stealing their money.

Miss Lindsey acting like a diva again. I wonder how long before Graham flips again. It was only a few days ago he was dancing with ants in his pants while sweating profusely during his debate with Jaime Harrison. I really think they should check for voting irregularities. Very suspicious.

As for the man-child, womp womp. It must feel boring playing golf with yourself - you can't cheat anybody.

Reports coming out that Melania is preparing for a divorce (although that marriage was over years ago).

I find it curious that on the weekend he was told he lost the election, Trump decides to spend all two days on the golf course instead of attending a church service and reflecting....and seeking religious wisdom and guidance...and praying for all those that supported him...

I wonder if his so-called evangelical supporters are curious about this too?

Nah, doubt it...

I am sure Melania will, through her lawyers!!!

At some stage we can of course expect a flurry of presidential pardons for all of his convicted cronies, and I have no doubt that he'll try to pardon himself too -- something that's never been tried before, and it'll be interesting to see how that works out.

10 ( +11 / -1 )

Well, Trump will no doubt try to pull one more con-job on his supporters - after playing them time and time again for over four years...

Now, it will be the Biden, Obama, Hillary, Elvis heist job - they stole the election from me and I'm just the poor victim - so give me money, attention and love...

He'll continue his rallies because he's so insecure and loves the adoration - and will rant about how unfairly he was treated - it's will always be about him...

And I have no doubt they will all fall for it again...there's only one way to leave a cult....just ask Jim Jones...

Yes. But don't expect the result to change because of a recount. Biden leads by thousands in Pennsylvania - a recount won't change that result.

Apart from recounts, I'm not sure what legal challenges Trump is considering, but without evidence, it won't even go to court, far less the SCOTUS.

Republicans, November 8, 2016 - November 8, 2020: hahaha eat it dumb libs we won screw you lol leftist tears!!! hahaha owned libs everywhere!!

Republicans, today: I realise now that gloating and triumphalism in politics is wrong and ask you to respect my wishes. This attitude will expire upon the election of the next Republican President.

Yes, that'll be the money he's scamming, sorry, asking for donations for his election defense fund.

Which will go towards costly legal funds; the fine print says 60% will go towards paying off the campaign's debt.

Trump just wants to make a big splash on the way out before he starts a new tv show. He’s done and he knows it.

I hope Trump does barricade himself in the White House, and is led out in handcuffs. No doubt he’s now panicking because he won’t be able to use tax money to repay his loans or fund his hotels and golf courses, but the man is a total loser, and it’s fun to watch his and his supporters’ pathetic clawing to keep power.

Imagine being such a loser at 74 that you can’t accept a defeat, admit when you’re incorrect, or be civil in the least.

Can't teach an old dog new tricks.

SO WHY CAN'T OUR GOVERNMENT

USE A SYSTEM FOR VOTING THAT IS JUST AS MODERN AND EFFECTIVE ?

Because elections are rigged and they always have been. Trump has just exposed it. Let's see what proof he has. We just need to be patient for a few more days.

-13 ( +1 / -14 )

You're kidding right?

-12 ( +1 / -13 )

What I think is interesting is only the left wants everybody to vote as early as possible, then count the votes as late as possible. Just saying.............

We just need to be patient for a few more days.

So they can try to manufacture some evidence that sticks.

I hear Trump has latched on to one policy idea from his entire Presidency to take with him as he leaves office....

It's not gun rights, or pro-choice views, or religious freedom....

It's HERD IMMUNITY.....

No, not herd immunity from the virus,,,,Trump wants immunity from prosecution for his herd - his whole family and close cronies...

But just like the wall, just like reducing the deficit, and just like being a two-term President, it will be just one more thing that he'll fail and won't accomplish....

10 ( +10 / -0 )

The next thing you know Trump & friends will be making up conspiracy theories that UFOs and aliens were helping Biden. They need to face up to the fact that Trump was more unpopular than he was popular. The truth hurts, especially if you’re an always Trumper.

It was PA's GOP legislature that insisted that early votes couldn't be counted until election day. Facts don't care about your feelings.

And neither do votes.

So Donald Jr. and Eric are siding with dad vs. Melania and Kushner. Children of people who see no wrong in their fathers because they are rich can be blind to the money, and it's a brainwash as it really messes up their ability to think on their own. Priorities lean strongly toward materialistic ideals over human emotion, empathy and common sense.

If kids are loved, educated and taught to be open minded, they probably see through that stuff, like Kelly-Anne Conway's daughter, who abhors Trump and her mother's politics. Too bad Trump's kids aren't like her.

Hypocrisy, lies and manipulation are mutually inclusive to Donald Trump, as the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

You can tell his heart isn't in it. Could be screaming and organizing. Instead he golfs alone. Holding a news conference at the Four Season (Land Scaping) is not only a sign of incompetence; it is a sign of un-seriousness.

When Rudy is your main guy, you need a new guy.

And Melania, better have her divorce petition signed and ready to go at 12:02 or the guy with the indictments is going to make her stand in line.

I never thought Melinia was stupid. I actually think she’s very smart and played Trump like a fiddle. And Trump deserves everything that’s coming his way. Trump hates immigrants but married one himself. That’s the very definition of hypocrisy.

Maybe he should ask his old faith advisor Kenneth Copeland to “call a judgment” and do some of that speaking in tongues. Makes about as much sense as trying the Supreme Court route.

There has been FRAUD at voting stations!

Biden is not a legitimate president UNTIL these allegations are disproved.

Why are there not any interviews with voting station workers in the mainstream media about these shenanigans?

How can 100,000 postal votes be solely for one candidate delivered in the early morning, at one polling station, markedly changing the winning candidate?

There have had to be Trump voters in the mass of postal votes.

FRAUD...

2016-2020- Trump/supporters- bigot, racist, unpatriotic, fascists, white supremacists, brainwashed, cultists.

11/2020 After media calls the election-

Let's have unity man!

Oh, just let it go man!

Be a true patriot and just concede or you don't love America!

No matter which way this site leads, I have a right to speak my opinion. These 4 years YOU did not accept Trump as your President and I have a right not to support Biden.
