An adviser said that President Trump should stop fighting the election results because it makes him look like a sore loser — and no one likes a sore loser.

Well, no one likes a cheater, either.

All voters, on either side, should want to know that the vote was clean and legal.

I don't want political bosses interfering in my election any more than Russia or China. Count the votes. Check the votes.

The Republican case of electoral fraud.

Biden is still flip flopping. During the September 29th debate, he said he would not declare victory until election results were independently certified.

Lynn, when you are down three touchdowns with 12 seconds left on the clock in the fourth quarter, you have lost.

Biden gonna pick up 306 electoral votes. And over 5M+ more 202 popular count votes than Trump. Trump has lost.

You can scream fraud and illegal votes until the coes come home, and Trump has still lost.

Look at it another way. Trump screamed in 2016 that the 3M+ more votes Clinton received over him in the popular vote were due ro illegals voting a committing fraud. Now, Biden wins by 5M+ votes in 2020. Does this mean Trump let in 2M+ more illegals during his four years in office???

Give it up. Trump lost. Fascism lost. Biden won. Democracy won.

@HappySeller2014

Don't forget that we are not done counting. Estimates will put that lead at about 7 million. Antifa is running up the score.

Americans who provided lawfully submitted votes are running up the election. No evidence has been provided to the contrary, and it is now a week after the election was held.

Take a note from your favorite pastor Jerry Falwell Jr. and watch the rest of us have fun over here from your spot in the corner.

Yep, CD, and all trying to defend NOT investigating allegations of voting fraud. I guess that cements the Dems reputation for corruption and shady politics - otherwise they would be supporting investigations into violations of election laws.

Investigate exactly what CREDIBLE allegations bosco? The made up stuff of Rudy and Trump. Funny how he is now collecting money for his new PAC and the fine print says some may go to investigating the election but he can use it for legal defense. Once a con man, always a con man. By the way, take a look at the post on my 12:44 comment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpOnt1cByT4&feature=share&fbclid=IwAR2HLvCZz_QMMvHSB6nRnWyfpzY6q_oc64JEicZesj7iVDom4HBlVCmbOBU Notice how all the prominent talking heads, including the current press secretary are against investigating. What say you to that?

NewMarketParent

@Reek

Literally no one has done that. Please have fun with your strawman. I heard that CDeez likes to watch.

matts853

Last I heard, Trump was 0 for 12 in lawsuits. They are being summarily dismissed because there’s zero evidence of fraud. Trump and his gestapo are just making s&!t up. It’s disgraceful.

matts853

Good find HD. That is the height of hypocrisy!

Hayduke2

Matt- 👍. Compares to the hypocrisy from Graham and McConnell.

olefool

Yeah Bosco... Kinda reminds me of the republican senators on that impeachment court, quoting Moscow Mitch, "nope, we ain't investigating nothing" ... So far this cycle there hasn't been a single voter fraud case committed by a democrat, all those nuisance lawsuits are fruitless for your boys. I particularly liked that Arizona Judge's admonition to Trumps lawyers when, after they requested to seal all of their non existent "evidence", in rejecting their request he said "the public has a right to know how flimsy Plaintiffs' evidence actually is" Republicans lost by more that five million votes, and that's a fact. period.

threecents

It is my understanding that allegations are being investigated. I have no problem with that. However, that should not hold up the transition. I heard on NPR this morning that Bush gave classified briefings to both Obama and McCain before the election was settled.

Isn’t it ironic that Trump chastised Biden for hunkering down in his basement during the campaign because of Covid, and yet here he is now sulking in defeat and hiding from public view. He’s quit on the country just like he quit on Covid. We don’t have a President right now. We have a child-in-chief in full out tantrum mode. God help us until noon on January 20, 2021 when we will officially have an adult back in the White House.

Dwasserba

Yeah it's fine. Hillary asked for a recount and Trump got a higher total. Counting votes is part of the process. The "sore loser" part is that mouth of his.

threecents

The first issue is that Trump declared he was the winner if only legal votes are counted. Yet nobody has provided evidence of fraud. That is totally consistent with Trump. The bigger issue is that some of you are backing Trump up. Trump is trying to undermine democracy, and some of you are not seeing that. Recounts in close states are reasonable, but baseless accusations of election fraud are anti-democratic and only serve to further divide the country.

NewMarketParent

@threecents

They know that, but they don't care. These are the same people who were celebratory of babies in cages. Don't expect these leopards to change their spots. They need to be out in the wilderness for a little while.

The mendacious marmalade will be gone and doesn't know how to deal with it. No fraud, just a 74 year old child who no longer has any minions to make problems go away. I would assume at some point, he will quietly go to Mar A Lago, not attend or acknowledge the inauguration. Then wait for the legal system to come knocking after his vulnerability returns from presidential protection.

stjohn42

Extraordinary claims of fraud need to be backed up with extraordinary evidence of fraud. All we have seen so far are baseless allegations, recanted confessions, phony laptops, and Tweet-after-Tweet-after-Tweet.

bosco

And some whistle blowers who need to testify under oath, plus many who have already signed sworn affidavits as to irregularities and fraud they observed. They all need to be investigated and heard - just like Col Vindman deserved to be heard. Unless, of course, you want to start squashing allegations of wrong doing and sweeping them under the rug.

What do the Dems have to hide or fear from investigating potential violations of state election laws and possible fraudulent ballots?

[ninja]

threecents

Bosco, Vindman was one of many who made the same accusations, and they were backed up with facts. He simply provided evidence to his superiors, following the chain of command, as he was sworn to do. Think better.

You can keep pushing this false and misleading story of cheating all you want. Time and again, it is always your side that is cheating and gets caught.

matts853

Funny you bring up Vindman. He’s one of many causalities of Trump’s petulance. And everything you’re projecting about the election (which has no basis in fact) applied to the Republicans during the impeachment proceedings. You have an incredibly one-way POV, Bosco.

@matts853

Reek is surprisingly adept at revisionist history.

Bosco appears to be still nursing (wounds) at the teat of FoxStateTv. I can hear from here, that loud suckling sound. Sad!, mostly because he and the letter writer, who is doing the same, are then in the camp of those who believe obstructing the course of a smooth and gracious transition to the new presidency is good for our country. It isn't, and those who support this Republican attempt of distraction and obsfucation are as cowardly, unpatriotic, and desperate as the Republican Congress members, and Trump himself, esconced in his bunker with his very own Eva B. You should know you're in trouble when FOXStateTV cuts off the lying Kayleigh McEnany midstream during her "report" of fraudulence and "election violations". No question, Rupert Murdoch knows a loser when he sees one...............

Didn't I tell you yesterday you are too old to throw tantrums? Why you enjoy looking like a fool day after day is puzzling to me? Maybe those orange crayons are toxic after all?

Why is it whenever there is "voter fraud" you find Republicans lurking about?

GOP donors paid USPS ‘whistleblower’ $136,000 for election fraud allegations — that he just recanted

“Richard Hopkins’ claim that a postmaster in Erie, Pa., instructed postal workers to backdate ballots mailed after Election Day was cited by Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) in a letter to the Department of Justice calling for a federal investigation,” The Washington Post reports. “Attorney General William P. Barr subsequently authorized federal prosecutors to open probes into credible allegations of voting irregularities and fraud, a reversal of long-standing Justice Department policy.”

Hopkins has now signed an affidavit recanting his false claims, which the House Oversight Committee noted in a Twitter thread.

"...plus many who have already signed sworn affidavits ..."

How many?

DickD

There's no evidence of cheating and what might be found was done by Trump and his supporters. The same fraud as Trump U.

FrederickFan

There is no evidence of mass voter fraud. Election officials from both parties in all fifty states have attested to this fact. Biden won fair and square. The voters have spoken. We have never had a defeated President not concede or facilitate transition. This bad behavior risks our democracy. It's time to put country first. Do it for a veteran.

awteam2000

Today’s NYTimes reports they contacted election officials in all 50 states and found no voter fraud. The article goes into great detail.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/10/us/politics/voting-fraud.html

Greg F

This is not even that close And there is a duty to transition and at the very least prep for it. Yet baby Donnie is so wrapped in delusion that he is firing anyone who thinks it’s time to move on and causing great harm to the nation in his pig ignorant refusal to accept reality. Tantrum at the checkout isle like a little kid, really embarrassing.

Brookhawk

Those on the ground who have actually worked the polls and the counting - from both parties - have repeatedly defended their work and said over and over that the election was fair. Trump doesn't care about fairness. Trump cares about staying in office so he can stay out of legal trouble. If that isn't clear to you after the last four years, you have been willfully keeping the blinders on.

bosco

It ain't over 'til it's over. The RNC lawyers are collecting signed affidavits from people who have reported irregularities in the vote counting process. People willing to risk perjury charges to come forward and sign. The evidence is being gathered.

Shouldn't we all be interested in a fair and transparent election process? What are you afraid of?

Look at it this way, if it's duly investigated and found to be minor, it will take the wind out of Trump's sails.

Trump attorney openly admits to judge under penalty of perjury that there’s no election fraud

“I am asking you a specific question,” the judge pressed, “and I am looking for a specific answer. Are you claiming that there is any fraud in connection with these 592 disputed ballots?”

“To my knowledge at present, no,” Goldstein replied.

“Are you claiming that there is any undue or improper influence upon the elector with respect to these 592 ballots?” the judge asked.

“To my knowledge at present, no,” Goldstein conceded.

awteam2000

Bosco, you are simply delusional if you think there is significant irregularities that will change the outcome of the election. Trump lost the election by over 5 million votes and by 79 electorates. He got his butt kicked.

bosco

Did I say anything would change the outcome, awt? I am only interested in a free and transparent election process where every legal vote is counted. We the people should be able to have confidence in the process and assured that any irregularities are dealt with. The allegations and whistle blowers coming forward should not be swept under the rug.

Between you and me, and the FNP, if the election were to be overturned the "mostly peaceful" protests would not be so peaceful. Antifa is more than an idea (Biden) or a myth (Nadler)

What are you afraid of if Trump assists in an orderly transition process even if it proves unnecessary?
