I won’t believe that until Biden is safely ensconced in a freshly fumigated White House.
We all know what the promise of an abusive bully with a history of lying and a lack of belief in facts is worth, right?
Hm. What’s the most batshit insane thing for Donald Trump to do today?
I know! Hold another rally.
He intentionally had someone else convey the message, so he wouldn’t be directly quoted as having said it. Later he will act like he never even uttered it at all it was just some talking point the traitorous republicans who hate our country insisted was necessary to quell the unrest of the patriots who were justifiably upset over a stolen election (or something like that)
Orderly transition of power involves not having your supporters storm parliament.
So failed already.
We need to update the safety sign in the Capitol:
Days Since Last Violent Insurrection: 0
Translation: A bare minimum of assurance surrounded by further lies, obfuscation and self-aggrandizement.
Anyone who is comforted by this statement has been in a coma for six years.
The only thing left for Trump to do is to try and call in the military, which is exactly why he needs to be 25th-Amendmented out of town this morning.
Yeah sorry dipshit, you can’t fold after you’ve tipped your hand. And it was a pair of twos.
We are reaching Peak Immaturity.
Actually I think he had someone else convey the message because he is currently blocked by Twitter for 24 hours, finally!
He has other ways of directly addressing the public that don’t involve Twitter. Suddenly, he has no desire to show his face on TV. Of course the day is young…
Neville Chamberlain learned that lesson the hard way
He literally has an entire press corps ready to report anything he says.
I hope with the Biden administration the days of pretending Twitter is the bully pulpit are over.
Like conjoined twins they are.
I think Pence and the joint chiefs threatened to invoke the 25th amendment on him. It’s the only reason why he’d do this now. He knows if he tries to push this he’ll lose.
This is still not a concession, so it’s meaningless. Pompeo said two months ago that there would be a smooth transition “to the second Trump administration”. He’s still dangerous and still poised to incite violence.
