Luckily there’s a post history if you ever need reminding.
Most likely there will be a lot of “new” commenters showing up though.

Inauguration ceremonies and related events typically draw huge crowds to Washington.
2016 was a recent exception though...

Biden is not president-elect, he did not win the election. Just because the MSM calls him the winner does not make it true.
Trump lost. To the detriment of the American people, even democracy itself, he just wants to stay in the limelight foe a bit longer. It would be best, and probably save many lives, if he just conceded and let the transition go smoothly as it has for every election until now.

In other developments, only 47% of Americans think the election was not stolen.
What? Only around 65% of Americans and less than half of those supported Trump. 47% of those supporters are ignorant enough to think the election was “stolen”. That’s a looooooong way from 47% of Americans, unless your premise is that real Americans are only the Republicans that voted?

A stunning performance from both Giuliani and Sidney Powell today.

Quoting this article as an example of voter fraud is as stupid, and frivolous, as Trump’s lawsuits. An article from September saying that NINE ballots, for both Trump and Biden, we’re found accidentally thrown in the trash. Ridiculous!
Just count the all ballots and declare the winner. If that’s Biden then it’s Biden, likewise if it’s Trump then it’s Trump.
Trump’s reaction to losing will be remembered for a very very long time as future generations look back at the worst president in history of the America.

Trump haters, why are you afraid of result?
I don’t think many, Trump haters or otherwise, are afraid of result of the vote. Everyone IS AFRAID of what Trump, and his obsessed cult following, will do when he loses the election and how much gasoline Trump pours on the fire.

As soon as polls close in battlegrounds, "We’re going in with our lawyers,” Trump said Sunday.
These final acts of desperation, like the one in Texas that was rejected by the court, show how worried, and how low he will go, as he realizes how he’s doing in this election. The sad part is that the hate and division he has sowed will haunt the US for a long time to come.

I want one of those hats!
Considering that Trump will become famous as the worst president in the history of the United States, and having contributed to the death of more Americans than any event in our history, the hats may become worth a fortune to collectors in the future. Or maybe just trash ...

When you resort to scathing, personal insults that means you have no argument.
Something Trump has been doing for the last 4 years, and it’s only overshadowed by his lies!

Yeah, and cases are spiking all over the world.
Deaths are spiking as well. Yesterday there were nearly 7,000 COVID deaths recorded worldwide, over 1,000 of those were in the US! That’s about 15% of the worldwide total for a country with less than 5% of the world’s population. And, this doesn’t even consider the more than 16,000 Americans that are in serious condition with most in ICUs.
Trump says we’re rounding the corner and it appears to be head-on into the truck coming the other direction. And now the administration says “Trump ended the pandemic.” smh

@ Blue Sausage
This baseless story has been going around among the tin foil hat crowd although the amounts are usually different. However, there is absolutely no evidence of fraudulent reporting to receive a higher Medicare rate and, in fact, based on “excess deaths” the number of COVID deaths in the US is actually being underreported.
5 ( +6 / -1 )
how has "controlling the virus" gone in the rest of the infected world?
Well, the US population is less than 5% of the world population but the DEATH count from COVID is almost 20% of the world total. It looks like a lot of places must be doing better than the US under Trump...

President Trump has now pulled ahead of Biden in Pennsylvania by 2 points and surging after Biden's impossible gaffe in the debates to transition away from oil.
I wouldn’t bet the house on an InsiderAdvantage poll of 400 “likely” voters when it’s the only one of about 10 recent polls in PA showing Trump with any kind of lead. You noted that it shows Trump up by 2 points but you forgot to mention that it has a margin of error of 5.9.

I find it interesting that up until now Trump supporters here have been saying Biden can’t talk for two minutes and, if he were forced to, he would destroy himself. They said Trump would be smart to just let Biden talk. Well, now that Biden, actually each candidate, gets two full minutes to talk uninterrupted because the opponent’s mic is muted, there beside themselves. It’s pretty obvious they are more concerned about Trump having two minutes, without Biden interrupting, and their worried.
Be careful what you wish for, it might just come true.

There are many different predictions of the actual death rate as different countries try different methods of controlling the virus. Your idea that the actual rate is at least ten times lower than the currently accepted rate of 1% however isn’t backed up by the actual data. A 0.1% death rate would mean that a bit over 200,000 Americans would die before herd immunity was achieved. First there is no guarantee that immunity is lasting, second more that 200,000 Americans have already died as a result of the virus, and third both infections and deaths are increasing. The death rate of the corona virus has already far exceeded the flu death rate which can be confirmed by looking at the “excess deaths”. Based on this actual data it does appear the death rate will approach the 1% mark.
Of course you’re welcome the interpret statistics anyway you want to fit your narrative but I hope most base there views on the actual data available.

In Canada, you must wear a mask outside your home yet the numbers there have been exploding again. Why?
Hummmm, let me see...
Active cases in the US - nearly 2,700,000
Active cases in Canada - less than 21,000
Yep, seems they are doing better than the US, probably masks...

No, because I’m 2008 and 2012, the person that won the popular vote also won the electoral college.
Bill Clinton failed to win the majority of the vote in his election and re-election - never heard Dems saying he wasn’t a legitimate president.
Clinton won by popular vote in both 1992 and 1996. I think you’ll find that Donald Trump and George W. Bush were the two elected without winning the popular vote.

A reality so real it only exists in the mind of trump supporters.
This is what pure rage has reduced the left to. Sneering at peace and prosperity.
Except that after 4 years of Trump the US has neither.

“If anything, a second Biden ally said, the two COVID-19 cases prove the campaign had taken the right approach.”
If you compare the 20+ and counting infections in Trump’s “masks are anti-American” inner circle to the three on the Biden side I would say it shows how well masks and proper precautions slow the spread of the virus.
I’m sure the majority of the American people also recognize this and realize the failing policy of the current administration!

But deaths are going down and that’s a fantastic thing, so liberals can spread the gossip of death, doom and gloom and we will spread the scientific news of the declining deaths.
Scientific news of declining deaths isn’t correct. It’s true that the percentage of deaths has declined recently, perhaps because younger demographic is being infected but there are probably other reasons as well, but as the number of infections increase the number of deaths will also increase. 3% of a 1,000 may be 30 deaths but 1,000 of 10,000 is still 100 and over three times as many!
This quote seems appropriate:
“What you are seeing is a misapplication of data and statistics that ends up being overtly false and sometimes very, very misleading,” explained Amesh Adalja, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security.
As Trump continues to spread misinformation, division, and to host what could well become super spreader events the number of infections is bound to increase dramatically, death (on Trump’s hands) will follow.

Covid-19, lovingly given to you by the GOP.
China gets off scot-free? Jeez...
Apples and Oranges
Nearly everyone agrees the virus originated in China. That has nothing to do with the disastrous response, and resulting infections and deaths, in the US. That falls on Trump and his administration.

According to the CDC, 85% of people who got COVID wore masks "always" or "often".
These numbers are not from CDC but from someone that read a CDC study and presented the numbers to fit his narrative.
Did you actually read the study?
The sample size was only around 300 with less than half having Covid.
And the CDC’s summary? They recommended wearing masks!

listen to the science! negative test in consecutive days means "no more corona". Dont have it, cant spread it.
One reason that some still question this is that Trump tested negative using the Abbot rapid test and not the more accurate PCR tests.
This is the same test that was used at the Rose Garden event and WH events that infected how many? Wasn’t it something like 35, including Trump?
The test’s very accurate with positive results but is known for false negitives!

“He turned his back on you," Biden said of Trump.
No he didn't. Quit lying, Joe.
Serrano may be partially correct. In order for Trump to “turn his back” I suppose some interest would have been necessary in the first place.
Trump has only ever cared about himself and a 1%, but mostly himself.
