Finally……someone has called this election for Joe Biden……
Joe Biden has reached the magic number of 270 electoral votes necessary to win the presidency, reports the AP. Details are still emerging, but the AP and CNN report that Biden won Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes, putting him at 273. The Trump campaign, however, still has legal challenges pending and recounts are likely, meaning it could be days or weeks before the nation has an undisputed winner. Biden addressed the nation late Friday night.
In a statement on Friday, President Trump vowed to continue his legal fight, saying it was “about the integrity of our entire election process,” reports Politico. The outlet notes that Trump has failed to produce any evidence to back up his allegations of fraud during the counting of mail ballots. “We will pursue this process through every aspect of the law,” said Trump. “I will never give up fighting for you and our nation.”
Of course that poser on the White House will milk this for all it is worth and feed the bullshit his supporters will believe…..
President Trump is not about to concede. In a statement issued after news outlets declared Joe Biden the winner on Saturday, the president remained defiant:
- “We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed,” he said, per Reuters. “The simple fact is this election is far from over.”
The president, who has repeatedly made unsubstantiated claims of fraud about the counting of mail ballots, said his legal team would start “prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld,” per CNBC. Earlier, before the race was called, the president tweeted, ” WON THIS ELECTION, BY A LOT!” He also traveled to his golf club in Sterling, Virginia, on Saturday morning for a round of golf.
Biden says it is time for the healing……which is bullshit…..48% of the voters went for Trump and he will not go silently and Biden will have to contend with that.
Please stop believing that the country will find its better angels….it will be just as fucked up as it has been for decades…..
Let’s all hope we can end this nightmare as soon as possible….

Everyone including Murdoch owned Wall Street Journal and Fox News are declaring Biden the winner. Most Republicans are now admitting that Trump has very little legal recourse here. They have been looking for widespread fraud and there’s nothing there.
Watch the GOP in Congress..Gaetz,Jordan, Nunes…all the traitors to the American people. ain’t over chuq
Trumpism isn’t going away.
No it is not chuq
One down but many, many left to go. Politicians are not generally good for the health of wealth of their electorate.
How soon can we eliminate the corporate toads? chuq
I know it won’t get better overnight. But, I do hope it’ll get better in time.
Depends at what you use as a measure….just ridding the country of the Donald is a good thing. chuq
It was the right result, but there will be more headaches before it is resolved. And then you will have Biden; not doing a fraction of what he promised, as well as being too old for the job. You may end up with the first woman president. That would be interesting, to say the least.
Best wishes, Pete.
She is already patting herself on the back…..chuq
