If she digs deeper, I'll check her then.

 

Obviously this is where you and I differ but you should probably get ready. The Georgia runoffs are the whole ballgame. It's going to become Team AOC vs Team Abrams and only one side has delivered real results. Georgia is about to get blasted with ads featuring AOC. We need to denounce and reject her on every level just out of strategy because at the end of the day she's a liability we don't need.

LOL, if this becomes some sort of contest between Abrams and AOC it's no contest for me at all. Abrams is the future of the party machine in a lot of ways. She's done unbelievable work and anyone who tries to make her a target inside the left is a fool.

AOC is following the lead of her idol Bernie Sanders. A lot of hot air and nothing. She's smart no question but if she was really smart she's be listening to Ted Kennedy who's office she worked for versus a guy who has zero legislative action and success.  Sanders still hasn't credited M4All to John Conyers who had been pushing this legislation for 25 years.

Which is why I have no time for, or give zero [!@#$%^&*] about, Princess Sparkle Pony or her antics.  We've just battled the devil himself for the soul of this country, and even though we won (and by a lot), we still have tremendous work to do just the correct the messes that the Trump administration will leave behind on their way out.  The last damn thing we need now are progressives reverting back to "Burn It Down!" mode (even if they've proven that that's all they know how to do) before the new team has even officially moved into 1600 Penn.  Give It. A [!@#$%^&*]. Rest.

Just because I know you love this stuff @Khan 😉

 

 

I do love it, @OzFrog.  Thank you.

 

(And Russo is right: not a single lie was told in that clip.)

I guess they are talking about Trump's plan to attempt to get the GOP electors to vote for him instead of Biden if he can't get his way in the courts. Which of course, would throw this country into total chaos. Which side to do you believe will be told to stand down and quell things.

The other reason my mom doesn't like Kamala Harris is because she sees her as a flaming liberal, like AOC and others and thinks the country will fall into socialism. I don't want the country to fall into socialism, either, but I also don't want it to become an autocracy. 

 

Agree.  But it's like what Cliff Huxtable (yes, that Cliff Huxtable) once said: it's all in the presentation.  FDR's New Deal was pretty damn socialistic, but just try and suggest taking away Social Security and Medicare to the same folks who hate Socialism and don't want it in these United States.

He's pathetic! He's suing Arizona. Fox news says we stand by our projection and even if Trump gets enough voted to win Arizona....Biden still has enough electoral voted to be President.....lol

I think AOC never quite has known how to handle the fame thrown at her or the harsh realities of legislating, especially in current DC/America.

 

That's what happens when your frame of reference are the "Legally Blonde" movies.

AOC's already acting out on Twitter against Democrats and the Lincoln Project and she's about to get checked hard especially by Black Twitter.

 

Oooh, let me get my popcorn!

Trump is not going to get the electors to vote for him lol, but y'all can pretend and worry if ya like.

 

I think Trump might turn a few, especially from the Southern states, but I don't believe it will make any difference in the end.

It is petty, but I can't help but hope that Trump is watching all of the jubilation and feeling humiliated. The fact that people are elated about basic normalcy returning goes to show how terrible the past four years have been. Of course there are still two more months to deal with this disaster so the chaos is not over yet.

 

It's so true. I am exhausted from these last 4 years. It has felt like the world was on the verge of collapse at every turn. And it still feels like that, but I have some hope now. Just being able to string a coherent sentence together already has Biden being a more accomplished president than Trump.

Willing to bet Melania has an iron- prenup which keeps her there til he dies.

 

 

Melania renegotiated her prenup, in her favour, in the time period between Trump being elected and when she finally moved into the White House, and she's part of the chorus that is telling Trump to accept that he has lost. She never wanted to be First Lady in the first place. That marriage is absolutely over, even if she never seeks a divorce. 

 

However, if she's stuck till he dies...

This should be all of it, finally: 

 

 

 

Has Don ever openly acknowledged he's gay? Good for him.

 

Don is out and proud on his Instagram and he openly posts pictures of himself with his partner. Don's rise has been a bright spot of this otherwise horrendous administration. I like him a lot and I am sad for the pain he has had to endure simply for being who he is. He is a good person.

This is why I say everyone (on the Left AND on the Right) who thinks we should be all "Reach Out and Touch (Somebody's Hand)" right now with Trump supporters can go straight to hell.  Trumpers weren't just individuals who merely disagreed with us politically.  These were folks with pure hatred and malice in their hearts toward us; who were being egged on by their leader to seek out, defame, discredit, and even maim and destroy us.  And you want me to give peace a chance??

 

Truly. Much of what has been done is unforgivable.

And a thank you to Mary Trump. She, along with so many others, made dents in the Trump armour that undoubtedly impacted some people who might not otherwise have done the right thing when they went into the voting booth. Her book and the recordings of Trump's sister were important pieces of evidence that made the case for his moral obscenity.

Credit to Bush, he is keeping this moving and keeping the smart Republicans focused on the TRUTH. I look forward to seeing him sitting next to Hillary Clinton at the next inauguration. This time, he won't have to say "That was some weird sh-t" after Biden's speech, as he did after Trump's.

I love that ending for her.

Decency won! Sure Kamala Harris should be PRESIDENT, but this will do nicely. Congratulations to everyone that was able to let go a huge sigh of relief. May the future be bright.
