Funny how the Trump people who love accosting the fake news is so eager to promote fake news of their own.


I couldn't bring myself to believe the actual group would go .com online. Maybe .org or something, but .com seemed off.

I did want to quote and reply, however, because the link you provided is f'n great. It didn't take a political stand as I read it, but walked through all the reasons this wouldn't be the Dems, and could in fact be anyone. It's a great lesson for anyone on how websites work, how the internet can misdirect, and how you can't really tell who is behind what. Great, GREAT article, IMO.

All the hand wringing, moaning, and fear put forth by the left about Trump not leaving peacefully if he loses the election may come true. But, can I ask what has given evidence that this is his inclination? To my memory, he won't acknowledge the possibility of losing and state a "If that happens..." So, I'm without reference to justify this assertion.

However, we do have this

"Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances because I think this is going to drag out, and eventually I do believe he will win if we don't give an inch..."

I just saw this in my feed and thought to myself, "what the fuck? Why do they let her talk to the press still."

I wonder the same about the situation. I never heard of trump hinting at it (in clear troll form) until after you started to see the notable Dems coming out and saying they don't think he will leave office if he isn't re-elected. As far as I can tell it's just more fear mongering from that particular sect.

I doubt Trump even wants to win another 4 years - he's made any connections he didn't have before and can go back to the private sector and stockpile assets for Putin or whatever he wants. The only thing keeping him running again is his ego and desire to keep up appearance of being "a winner". You know what damages that image? Being a sore loser.

My guess is if he loses he'll slink off I to the shadows of mar a Lago and blame it on a technicality, he'll have someone write a book about how he actually won - slap his name on it as author, it'll be a #1 seller and he'll go around promoting how great of an author he is and take a couple shots at Joe.

Honestly, I don't see Republicans having it in them to fight a loss. I can't see them waging 3y of accusations, investigations, and such even if they believe there are grounds for it. They are wimps when it comes to this and won't fight back.

Trump I don't know about. Does he slink off saying he chose not to win (HA!) or does he wage a war of retribution fighting every inch he can in courts? I just don't see him wasting his time or money that way when he can walk away with the pressure of that position being behind him while continuing to point to his achievements.


Dems have already shown they will fight a close loss and have done so ever since Trump won. I can't imagine what lengths they may go to if they lose this one. Especially if it is close.

president trump won in 2016 despite the election being rigged, says he.

if president trump loses in 2020 he'll claim forever, with absolutely no evidence whatsoever, that he lost because the election was rigged.

I believe there was some hullabaloo last time a republican won a close one.

So who should I vote for brah? Isn't it going to come down to Trump vs Biden? I'd vote libertarian but that doesn't stand a chance I don't think. I mostly just don't want Biden or a democrat to win so Trump seems like the only vote to make that happen.

biden is literally mentally retarded and a open racist more so than trump. Fuck them both trump is going to win this election even easier than 2016. Biden going around swearing at union workers and everything lmao.

How you suppose to be president if your actually retarded and can't even keep a train of thought. America would get bent over and take it up the ass from the Chinese if biden won.

I can't believe you guys are gonna vote for that piece of trash.

Same. I honestly can't comprehend how anyone with any integrity can vote for Trump. He's a horrible narcissistic person who's only interested in his own self interests.

If you're conservative or republican there are other choices. Hell you don't have to vote at all.

Honestly I'm still of the view that trump will eventually destroy the republican party for the near future by the time his day has passed. That's if he hasn't taken the rest of the country with him.

He's definitely the smuggest president America has had in my life time. Acts purely out of self interest, dismisses all evidence that shit is falling apart as 'fake news' and I'm not 100% sure about this, but I think he actually believes he's doing a good job (like a Kanye West-type Syndrome).

He seems pretty blatant about not giving a fuck, and a lot of people seem to have admiration for that when every politician before him has put such necessity on bullshitting about that. I wouldn't call Trump a bullshitter because he actually seems to believe in the crap that he comes out with.

All in all, there have definitely been worse presidents; dumber and more psychotic.

This guy running against him doesn't have much of a rap. Hillary Clinton at least gave him a run for his money.

Biden said during the event that a black man invented the light bulb — and “not a white guy named Edison.”

Edison made the first one, but a black inventor named Latimer improved upon it drastically, and those improvements are what made widespread use possible among the general population.

Latimer worked closely with Alexander Graham Bell, who some say took credit for the telephone when it should have been attributed to Latimer. Perhaps that's where Biden got tripped up, who knows.

Ahem, the Brit Joseph Swan invented the lightbulb.

You yanks - next you'll be claiming the Wright brothers invented the first aircraft or something...
