It boils down to McDonalds Trump will either back up what he's saying with solid evidence and conclusively prove the "election was stolen" As he puts it, or he'll just waste everyone's time with half cooked rubbish, I do think the latter is more likely.

He has been asked repeatedly for evidence. Trump's modus operandi over the last four years, and even before that, has been to repeatedly lie and not provide any evidence. Where is his evidence of the fraud in the 2016 election?

As to Trump's claims they are covered by the BBC, and if you check every other main news network, including Fox news, goes against him.

you can detest Trump as much as you like but having seen quite clear corruption and fraud evidence on twitter, the orange man probably does have a point, and as much as I hate to admit it, I actually think he's right.

Just a couple of issues with that, what corruption and fraud there has been seems to have come entirely from Trump and his supporters, including trying to stop postal votes and intimidate voters.

Observers, the press, and many Republicans have said the elections were not fraud. Each state has their own way of counting, and what votes get counted. So taking several days to count the votes is entirely fair and normal.

Twitter has repeatedly put on Trump's posts that they were effectively lies.


- Republicans and Trump made changes to rules in some states requiring ID proof in person registration for votes
- They also made it harder to postal vote and even trying to cut down the postal service in the run up
- Trump from the start of the year just went out and said postal voting is rigged and corrupt. Despite the fact he has posted his vote as he lived out of state before. He even said last year to republicans to get the vote in early and postal vote. Then the pandemic happened and he changed the policy when it was clear that 1. more people would vote 2. Democrats would postal vote.


- Republicans every election and especially when in power have continued a policy of changing voting to be in their favour. Overall there are less republican people because they are primary the richest / oldest people of the country which has constantly got smaller. IF it was any other country with normal voting they would loose EVERY time. Various republicans have even been on camera out right saying this.

So with the standard republican attempts to hold power and


How Trump is, he has just targeted the crazy to be quite frank and has encourage rumour, accusations, tension, and flawed up racists, conspiracy theory people and built up that population. So more of them feel they had a voice, getting their way even when they were getting less well off because he has created this cult like status. There was a show here in Australia 2 weeks ago showing how he has all but followed the same steps cult leaders do to create follows and have them believe them no matter how crazy it seems to the rest of us.


I do home he is dragged out of the white house, it will make great television in 2021 and a good kick off for a hopefully better year.

I heard some prat earlier on the radio suggesting that the Republicans only hope for 2024 is Trump again, they don't feel Republicans would get behind anyone else... well how well has that just worked out for you, eh? When the majority want your candidate not just not elected, but ideally in a casket. It's the same reason Labour will not be in power until "A competent opponent" materializes, as Matt rightly put. Even if you don't like Biden and think he's a sack of sh*t, he's still a massively smaller sack of sh*t than Trump.

It seems that Greta Thunberg has a sense of ice cold revenge, tweeting pretty much what Trump told her when she won Times person of the year. she even included his random capitalization so probably copied and pasted.

Trump "STOP THE COUNT!"

Greta, “So ridiculous. Donald must work on his Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Donald, Chill!”

Seems she's badass and deserves the thug life shades. It was a bad idea Trump getting at her anyway, sounded more like a five year old doing a tantrum over his sister got two dolls and he didn't get any.

The problem was by the time that Trump-et had tweeted the counts were already favouring a Biden win, Stopping the counts would have ensured it and his advisors had to shut him up.

So far the count seems to be 39 out of 40 cases failed to provide any evidence. The only ones shouting fraud are still Donald Trump, a few of his legal team (ones that haven't already quit to save themselves), and right wing media that don't have to tell the truth.

There are still plenty of ongoing cases but even if you total them all up you still get a Biden win, by a long way. The Trump campaign even paid for recounts in some counties and the result was Biden got even more votes than Trump.

What they are stuck with is the orange baby stuck in the White House having tantrums and throwing the Presidential toys out of his pram. The sooner they kick him out he better.

It has got so crazy now it is not even funny.
They are now holding these fake "hearings" and broadcasting them and they are just pure crazy, it is nuts.


They have raised $150 million for the fraud war fund (which actually is going to pay off debts) and it is scary the amount of people giving them money and believing all this stuff.


Trump is a baby, a spoilt brat that got money and through lying and cheating some how manages to convince enough people to be scared of him and some how worked his way to become president. He targets a very scary large amount of types of people (basically idiots) and does not do much but in a way with no facts, proof or anything make them believe him and anyone he gets to follow his tune.
As tv has said his "Enablers" are scary - All the republicans and people in white house jobs scared to be fired and scared to be out of jobs if he is not around. Many who have gone too far with him that their reputation is damaged and will struggle to get people to hire them and trust them in new jobs. Some of those now doubling down with trump and going with his insanity.


Facts are there is no proof to any of what they are saying.
They keep changing the narrative every time one avenue fails.
The scary fact is that people , like mentioned here who are the "Stop the count", "Count the votes" ... "Fox news is the only real news", "Fox news is fake news".... TO MANY OF THESE PEOPLE!
