    Considering Trump is now lying to the degree that it's impacting social order (with roughly 70% of Republicans in some polls claiming they believe there was voting fraud despite no evidence having ever been presented to a judge in any of the many cases Trump had his cronies open as a distraction), is that enough to have more legal consequences against him when he's finally dragged out by his hair? It's obvious he's doing it to cause unrest and squeeze some cash out of idiot donors who think he's going to put funds he's begged for into recounts, so surely the law has to step in at some point, right?

    In the emails they sent out begging for money for the lawsuits, in the small print it mentioned that half of all money received would be used to pay reelection debts

    If Democrats retain the House, gain the Senate, and the White House, Trump can be impeached again. Hypothetically if Trump was convicted he could be denied access to any elected position in the future including the US Presidency. Its not like Democrats have to look far for impeach worthy actions from Trump. In fact it could be run through the House and Senate as quickly as say a Supreme court nominee.

    Given the number of sexual assault claims against Trump which will most likely lead to trials once he is not president it dont think the Democrats will bother 

  3. His breathing is pretty bad.  My dad had COPD and this is what he was like trying to breath.  When he got an infection and had to take steroids he would feel great within a few hours and was this feeling lasted a few days.  If the infection didnt clear up within those few days he would often end up in hospital.  

    He is trying to act like he is tough and he hopes this will swing votes his way, but I dont think people are buying it, except for the brainwashed who were already going to vote for him 

  4. SO Trump is saying he is leaving hospital and he hasnt felt this good in 20 years

    This sticks of a ploy to open everything back up, scrapping all lock down measures.  Nothing to worry about life back to normal.  Just ignore the 200+ thousand  dead.  No need for mail voting.  Cant help but feel this is the last gasp con to try and win the election

    History tell us it has happened before so we learn from it and don't let it happen again. But other's will learn it's happened before so can happen again. It doesn't need a mastermind behind it just the gradual steps along a path.

    To learn from history you have to know your history, and Trump clear doesnt

    And here we go with the "delay the election" tweet...combined with orders to cripple the post office (stop overtime/cut office hours/delay deliveries) and the relentless claim that voting by mail leads to voter fraud...

    This smells like a power grab by the most corrupt president in US history.  

    Also Trump uses a postal vote, so if it good enough for him why not everyone else

    Bolton the war-hawk is back in the picture. Trump's team have rushed to block him releasing his book, which contains claims such as:

    • Trump asking China's leader for help with the 2020 elections, possibly by begging China to buy more agricultural produce from the US
    • Even Trump's most trusted advisors talk shit behind his back about how inept he is
    • There's apparently a lot worse that Trump has done with other leaders than he was impeached for
    • By the time Bolton left, Trump was just as clueless as he was when he started (which is likely still the case, the man's an idiot)
    • Putin was regularly able to use even blatant manipulation tactics to get Trump to agree with him

    The funny thing is that they're blocking it claiming it's got too much sensitive information that could risk national security, which suggests it's pretty fucking accurate. I guess someone like Bolton is just another RINO looking to undermine a guy who has previously registered as a Democrat, a Reform Party member, and independent but who is definitely a real Republican.

    They are also arguing that the book is lies, so why try and stop it

    ...and, as a Constitutionally Limited Republic, the Electoral College is working as designed. Limits the power with States with high population to control those with low population. It forces the President to appeal to a broad swath of the country.

    But you only have to focus on the swing states.  There are many states that rarely change who they vote for.  This gives the swing states a lot of control over who wins.

    Including the 2000 election only 13 states have changed who they vote for.

    That point illustrates the hypocrisy that the left willingly ignores, which is why it makes it so difficult for the right and left to talk to each other.  You are also illustrating the other reason why the right and left can't talk to each other... the right tends to engage in deeper and more complex thought and (from what I have seen) the average leftist isn't smart enough to keep pace with the right as demonstrated by the lefts complete inability to meme.

    So anyone that does believe what you believe is on the left and is to stupid to understand your deeper and more complex thoughts.  If you thinks memes are the arbitrator  of intelligence your are dumber that I thought which is a hell of an achievement.

     Coronavirus is on the rise again?

    IS it not, then why did you post in the Cvoid thread that it is

    They're all three MSM and thus fake news, so any poll they put out isn't going to be objective because it's going to be political first, poll second.

    Anything that doesnt fit the preconceived narrative of  a Trump support is fake news, this is why you cant have a discussion with Trump supports.

    And yet, here's a map of what the districts did.  Trump won with 304-227 votes... that's around 60% of the electoral college votes (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_United_States_presidential_election ).  That big of a margin IS NOT 3%, that's a blowout, and if the polls were actually accurate they would have reflected that.  Hell, had the Democrats done some self reflection and realized that when you run a sociopathic bitch as a candidate, people aren't going to vote for her instead of blaming everyone else on their failure, we would actually see a contender for Trump... rather than a guy that really should be in an old folk's home instead of the campaign trail.

    Yet if you look at the result Trump got 2% less of the vote then Clinton, so the polls were pretty accurate.  Remember the polls dont account for where people live and how this will affect the electoral college vote.  They are a poll of the popular vote which in all but 5 cases is the person that wins

    Clinton / Kaine Democratic 50 + DC 538 100% 65,853,514 48.18%
    Trump / Pence Republican 50 + DC 538 100% 62,984,828 46.09%
