‘I concede NOTHING!’ Trump says

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



President Trump on Sunday doubled down on his refusal to concede the election to President-elect Joe Biden, even after suffering resounding court defeats over his election challenges and amid a growing popular-vote margin for the Democrat. 

 “He only won in the eyes of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA,” Trump said of Biden in a morning tweet, providing no evidence to back up his claim. “I concede NOTHING! We have a long way to go. This was a RIGGED ELECTION!” 

 The president’s declaration comes as he and his administration continue to falsely accuse Democrats of election fraud and impede the transition. It also follows an earlier Sunday morning tweet in which he appeared — if inadvertently — to acknowledge Biden’s win. 

 “He won because the Election was Rigged,” Trump said in the tweet. “NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation & bum equipment that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, & more!” As with his other accusations, Trump did not provide any evidence, and Twitter quickly flagged the tweet, noting that his “claim of election fraud is disputed.” 

 In remarks in Wilmington, Del., last week, Biden weighed in on Trump’s refusal to concede the race, denouncing the president’s actions and suggesting that Americans are “ready to unite.”  “Well, I just think it’s an embarrassment, quite frankly,” Biden said of Trump’s insistence that he won the race. Biden added that Trump’s actions “will not help the president’s legacy.”  Trump and his allies filed lawsuits in five key states. But rather than revealing fraud, the effort by Trump’s legal team has so far done the opposite: It has affirmed the integrity of the election. Nearly every GOP challenge has been tossed out, and not a single vote has been overturned.

Trump's planned denials and the MAGA diehards congregating in the streets feed off each other. They boost each other. Our country continues to be in serious crisis.

Good for him!  He needs to stand up for us to the point he’s re elected or absolutely zero chances to do so remain and only then should he concede and announce his candidacy for President in 2024!

You do realize the election is officially over and Trump lost, right? So yeah, there's your ZERO chance!

Trump will continue to bloviate lies as long as there are ignorant listeners.  I’ve been complaining about the dumbing down of America for decades now.  It’s only going to continue to get worse since Republicans have devoted themselves to using the ignorant as a tool towards their ends.

It's a vicious cycle as the ones who refused to get educated and accept basic universal truths taught in school are ridiculing education and the educated as an 'evil' to be attacked and feared. These educationally deficient half wits then pass on their ignorance, often bundled in deep seated bigotry, to the next generation raising half wit bigoted kids who despise higher education and see professors, teachers and scientists as "the enemy" so it's no wonder some Americans are so easily manipulated by different forms of media. One has to have a solid foundation in truth and facts to be able to discern lies, but that solid foundation seems to have evaporated in many places leaving gullible hapless backwards morons who can't even be educated because their pappy and grandpappy made them fear education.

It's no coincidence that a billionaire Secretary of Education has spent four years years gutting public schools.

Trump plays golf, waves at the MAGA crowd, tweets, lies and refuses to even allow the pandemic team to coordinate with the incoming team all files useless lawsuits.

Meanwhile, Americans are being infected at a record pace and dying by the thousands.

Trump fiddles while the US burns.

Anybody notice that the head of Trump's COVID team, Pence, has been MIA for a couple weeks now? 

Nowhere to be found during the last days of the election, made very brief, in and out, appearances directly after the election.

Then promptly went on vacation, where he is now?

This started after his chief of staff tested positive.

After all, just how embarrassing would it be if the head of the corona virus task force were to test positive? 

I figure, after another week, he will suddenly reappear and start spouting all election conspiracy theories that Trump is.

Maybe Pence sees no upside to being with Trump, at the moment...

I suspect that the TrumpTrueBelievers are on a knife's edge. If they should suddenly realize how badly they've been abused; it might not be a good idea to remind everyone who used to be his VP...

It's too late for Pence, he's made his bed, curled up next to Trump, and now has to sleep in it. 

Pence has had many opportunities to break from Trump rhetoric, and even to show competency in leadership.  He has failed to do so each and every time.

Walked out and disappeared again.  I still think that the head of the COVID taskforce is hiding out because he tested positive.

When Fort Sumter took fire, Lincoln's response was to recruit soldiers. That was his response.

The breakdown of democratic norms requires a new system. In this revolutionary situation, what is Biden's response to national crisis? What is the Democrat Party response?

He's recruiting virologists, immunologists and doctors who are the equivalent to military generals when fighting a pandemic.

Trump discarded the virologists, immunologists and hired a radiologist "yes man" who was telling him what he wanted to hear and parroting Trumps insane "everything's fine" "it will just go away, like a miracle" narrative.

He's also putting together a task force and will hold daily briefings. Something Trump didn't bother with. He's also mandating masks, something which EVERYONE in this country should have adhered to by now. But the current leadership never bothered with that or promoted mask use to begin with. 

and hired a radiologist "yes man" who was telling him what he wanted to hear and parroting Trumps insane "everything's fine" "it will just go away, like a miracle" narrative.

This alone proves Trump was never interested in being President or didn't take the job seriously. He just wanted the attention and celebrity that came with the position. It seems Trump spent more time tweeting his complaints about the job than actually doing it.

6.2.6  IMT  replied to  Dismayed Patriot @6.2    2 weeks ago

Will President elect Biden heed the council of recognized medical authorities and scientists? Will he implement the school/factory shut down and institute emergency measures to sustain a population unable to work until this pandemic is finally finished? Or, will he furnish up piecemeal measures and shut down ONLY where workers are sufficiently rebellious successfully to close factories themselves by their refusal to cooperate with the bipartisan back-to-work drive? I'll eat serious crow if we get the first -- and I'll eat it gladly.

I think it must be recognized that Trump INTENDS that people die. If the aged and weak are killed off, then moneys intended otherwise for their care can be diverted to the military and CEOs.

President Trump is guilty of social murder and stands to be prosecuted for his crimes against humanity. Confiscate Trump's assets and allocate them for more COVID units to care for the sick. As for the man himself, a cell awaits him. A government committed to law and justice would put him there and never let him see the light of another day.

That makes two of us, Gordy 327. We have the means and resources to stop this thing cold. We knew this was coming. We've been warned for years. These warnings were ignored by the ruling class here and around the world. This matter must be taken from the hands of the ruling class and resolved by the working class -- the very people who are expected to bear the weight of this pandemic.

I'm not sure where to find the frontier "intends that" and "doesn't care that". They kinda flow together. 

Neither Trump nor any other very important person is ever pursued for the crimes they induce.

That is the distinction I see too Bob.   Trump cares about himself.   He does not intentionally do harm to people;  rather he just does not give a shit if doing what is best for him personally brings harm to others.

In a society that chooses to have such a government, there probably wouldn't be any "privileged".

It's a chicken-or-egg thing.
