With polls showing President Donald Trump trailing former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential campaign, the incumbent appears nervous that he might lose a fair vote.

At a campaign rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Saturday, Trump spoke for over 90 minutes.

In addition to vowing he will "fill" the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and accusations that Biden has performance-enhancing drugs injected in his ass, Trump threatened to call off the election by banning Biden from running.

"You can't have this guy as your president," Trump argued.

"You can't have — maybe I'll sign an executive order, you cannot have him as your president," Trump argued as his supporters cheered.

Whats worse, he sincerely believes his supporters approve of such comments, probably because they do. 

This nonsense is being normalized, just by the fact that the 70% of the country that are not Trump fanatics don't denounce it every day. We have 50% denouncing it, but we need the 70%, then there would be less anxiety about the election. Buck up independents and moderates.

Yes, because he knows they like a good joke. Especially a joke that trolls the opposition. He even said he was joking and it still got people upset. That makes it even funnier.

It appears that many low information liberals are unable to discern or understand jokes and satire when it is mockingly directed towards them. Normal, rational, intelligent, decent people have no such problem understanding Trump, and enjoy watching him drive befuddled left wingers and the media nuts. He's been doing this for four years now and they still don't "get it".  jrSmiley_10_smiley_image.gif

"You can't have — maybe I'll sign an executive order, you cannot have him as your president,"

When you define yourself by how outraged you can be, you always take shit like that seriously. Because it feeds the outrage. The rest of us laugh at the obvious joke.

And just in case, if it wasn't obvious to you, he prefaced the joke with:

"We can joke; we can play games; we can have fun"

But even THEN! Even then, if you are so deliberately intent on being bent out of shape that you take his words seriously, they only equate to eliminating Biden from consideration. It doesn't equal canceling the election like the headline says.

Trump Threatens To Call Off 2020 Election

So once again we see that even with insane, extreme TDS driving the story, they have to exaggerate to make it even worse than the initial warping of the truth.

If you cannot see the truth that the shit that spews from the asshole in chiefs mouth is not only divisive, it is detrimental to us all.

If one cannot see sheer hypocrisy, there is no help.

If one thinks rule with an extreme conservative majority is somehow a good thing, one is being totally if not willfully blind.

I have actually come to the conclusion that if/when the US would fail, the conservative assholes that looked to block any sort of reform that could have occurred, have to live in their own filth.

Then I wonder if that would even be a hell.

Totally void of even an ounce of integrity, the lying, thieving, negligent scofflaw Trump praises Ginsburg and then spits in her eye by ignoring her last wish in order to trumpet (so to speak) Republican hypocrisy by appointing a SCOTUS Judge only a few weeks before he will most likely be defeated in the election.  What an unbelievable symbol of America that piece of shit is - blackening the name and reputation of America around the world.

Her last wish was to not be replaced until there is a new president. Ignoring for a moment that justices are - in theory - not supposed to be political, do you really imagine that a justice has a right to expect a president to nominate a justice based on her wishes (whatever they might be)?

Any president should ignore such a wish. It is his constitutional responsibility and authority in conjunction with the advice and consent of the Senate. Justices do not name their replacements. Ever.

Since you're obviously well versed in your Constitution, if Trump calls off the election, then come January, who is going to be your POTUS?  Calling off the election means nobody will be elected, but if it means he would continue as POTUS, then he can be just like Abbas and Putin - maybe that's what he wants.

Trump is the very definition of "special kind of stupid".

Trump has no sense of humor, he doesn't "joke", he floats crazy insane things as ideas because he's a fucking dumb shit and then says he was joking when people around him laugh it off.

trump is representing the people 

He's representing himself and was elected by a minority of bitter bigots whining about losing their white culture.

Hypocrisy: noun - the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one's own behavior does not conform; pretense.

 “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice, therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.” - Mitch McConnell 2016

“I can now confidently say the view shared by virtually everybody in my conference, is that the nomination should be made by the president the people elect in the election that’s underway right now,” - Mitch McConnell 2016

“The Senate will continue to observe the ‘Biden rule’ so that the American people have a voice in this momentous decision on who to name to the court,” - Mitch McConnell 2016

“It seems the more we hear from Democrats about the Supreme Court the more we’re reminded by comparison of how reasonable and common-sense the Republican position is today.” - Mitch McConnell 2016

 “One of my proudest moments was when I looked at Barack Obama in the eye and I said, ‘Mr. President, you will not fill this Supreme Court vacancy,'” - Mitch McConnell 2016

“President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate,” - Mitch McConnell 2020

Conservative Republican hypocrisy truly knows no bounds. And all the lying and defending of it by Moscow Mitch's sniveling piece of filth supporters proves these are not patriotic Americans but weak cowardly partisans who would slit their own grandmothers throat if it meant a win.

Your question is unclear to me. McConnell did not make a ruling or appoint anyone. Maybe you could rephrase?

but then I haven't read your Constitution

The Constitution gives the president the authority to appoint a justice to the Supreme Court, but it also requires the "advice and consent" of the Senate. The bottom line is that no one becomes a justice without the consent of the Senate. That undoubtedly pisses some people off, but that has been the law for the entire history of the Court. Not every nominee gets approved.

McConnell knew there was not enough votes in the Senate to approve Merrick Garland, so he spared the country pointless investigations and hearings. As leader of the Senate, that is his prerogative.

The fact that I'm not from there means that I don't feel the pressure of "party loyalties", and that I have a more objective viewpont than a person who IS from there.  But that does not mean that I am ignorant of America and Americans, as I have spent considerable time in the USA, starting from being brought there for a visit as an infant carried in a basket by my mother to Baltimore which also happens to be the last American city I was in, for the wedding of my son.  Since my trip in a basket I have travelled from Hawaii to Cape Cod, from Los Angeles to Boston, from Miami to Chicago, from Dallas to Buffalo, From St. Louis to Washington DC, from Palm Springs to Cincinnati, from Las Vegas to New York City, from Philadelphia to San Francisco.  I shared ownership of a golf condo with my brother in Hollybrook, Florida for many years and spent considerable time there.  I have attended many music festivals in many locations in the USA, perhaps the most iconic one being the Newport Folk Festival where I saw Bob Dylan get booed off the stage for going electric.  I have had American girl friends from Buffalo, NYC, and Philadelphia, and having grown up an hour's drive from the US border I've spent a lot of time there.  The very first TV station we could watch for quite a while, and we did, was WBEN-TV Buffalo.  As well, I've been reading and having dialogue with Americans on an almost daily basis for about 13 years on Newsvine and then here.  I THINK I can proffer comments about America and Americans without TDS or any other ridiculous identifications.

It says they are intelligent determined patriotic Americans who don't want their nation run by an inept narcissistic misogynist moron authoritarian who monumentally failed the American people, fomented division, insulted our soldiers and veterans and lies non-stop. Most rational sane Americans won't give in to such a vile piece of filth or to those who support such scum just because they have won a few battles over the course of four years. The pendulum will swing back to justice and equality with a vengeance and it will be very interesting to watch all the sniveling bitter bigots whine and cry as they and their party are unceremoniously kicked out of power. When all of Trumps crimes are out in the daylight a third of America will be eating crow and pretending they never really supported such a heinous criminal.
