How far will Trump go before he concedes?

    Trump and his cronies are planning to pursue every legal option to overturn the election results, up to taking it to the Supreme Court, which he has filled with conservative judges. That's the only way I can see him holding on to power. If he does I don't think they'll give him what he wants, imagine the riots which would result from the Supreme Court overturning the election and retaining Trump as President. In fact I don't take his election challenges very seriously, he's on his way out, period. And whether he concedes or not, he will have to vacate the White House on January 20th so it can be sanitized for covid or else be escorted out.

    That's how I see it, I hope there are no surprises.

    It's kinda fun in a way to watch him squirm.

    The only ones crying are the losers, cause they know it's a HUGE loss. Bigglier than any other loss.

    I wouldn't go so far as thinking the Supreme Court won't hand him the election... they very well might. It's one of the things they were appointed for. Bought and paid for.

    Yes they might, I haven't counted it out as a possibility, but if I were a betting man I'd bet against it happening. Unless the legal team can come up with CONCRETE PROVEN EVIDENCE of massive voter fraud the Supreme Court will have no choice but to shut him down.

    Except some of the Justices, such as Chief Justice Roberts, would be acutely aware that such a move would destroy the legitimacy of the Court and U.S. democracy forever, tarnish their reputations in judicial history, and possibly plunge the country into civil war. Once the Justices are on the bench, the President no longer has effective leverage over them. Trump may try it and end up with egg on his face.

    Speaking of "wag the dog" (VG was accusing Biden of doing that after he takes office), looks like Trump has been exploring the possibility of an attack on Iran's nuclear capabilities., which would start a war in the Middle East and leave it to Biden to finish it.
    Trump asked for options for attacking Iran last week, but held off: source

    Picking dog shit off the White House lawn could be a job for him.

    I'm a Brit so I don't really care one way or another, but it would be funny if he bombs the shit out of Iran before departing, and then leaves the senile geriatric and his communist assistant to clear up the mess.

    And if you guys across the pond think you have problems, just be thankful you don't have Bumbling Boris as your elected leader.

    Damn you're negative! But I'd like to see him order an attack on Iran or whatever country, then have the military refuse to do it, telling him, "You're a lame duck President and us losers and suckers won't fight for you, so shut up and concede already!"

    Bottom line is that he is senile, and by refusing to concede, I think it hurts him if he decides to run in four years.

    So is Trump! :sweat::sweatsmile::tearsofjoy:

    Sorry guys but I think you are fucked whoever is eventually declared the winner.

    If it's any consolation, so are we.

    Sounds like a sick sense of humor you've got there. Bombing the shit out of Iran would cost a lot of human lives and lead to retaliation. You'd fit right in to the MAGA crowd over here.

    This "wag the dog, stick it to the next in charge" strategy is a favorite of Republicans, last tried by G.H.W. Bush who declared war on Somalia after losing the election, and left it to Clinton to clean up the mess. Since you're a Brit, it's understandable you don't give a shit about what happens to our country.

    Seriously? You think Kamala is a communist. You really would fit in over here, with the Klan or one of the militias.

    Were you aware our military raided a facility in Germany that was changing votes in real time, last week. The government was watching the election in real time when they saw all this BS going on and instantly went into cyber mode to detect where the votes were being routed to. The servers they seized showed Trump had 410 electoral votes. He won all his 2016 states plus Virginia, Maine, New Hampshire, CALIFORNIA, Minnesota, New Mexico, Rhode Island and Nevada.
