    I don't think he was ever coherent, he does look more pissed though.
    The standout has to be him just calling CNN bastards.

You know, last time it was that he was such a joke, there's just no way he can win and etc, and I think a lot of people who had come out for Obama stayed home, partly because they figured it should still be fine.

    The number of people who don't vote for whatever reason is probably the biggest problem with our political system, on a consistent basis. I could be wrong about that, but I really feel like there tends to be this sense of disconnect between the population and politicians, and the frustrating thing is that part of that is because so many people just sit it out...

    Anyway, hoping that does not happen, this year! The world really can't afford it!
    Trump did lose the popular vote. Was the problem not enough people voting or the electoral college countering the will of the majority?

    I agree.

    Eh. It's more not enough people voted in the right places.

    As for the electoral college, it ironically existed in the first place because they were worried about a populist convincing the States with the highest populations to override everyone else.

    Yep new updates

    1: Just saw an article that Trump attempted to take away Food Stamps. Federal judges denied him the ability to do so and this happening during the Covid crisis. Trumps plan seems to be to kill off as many poor people as possible, either by getting you sick and no insurance or by starving. The biggest irony is I know Trumpers who actually need Food Stamps.

    2: Six Russian hackers have been charged by the FBI for disinformation. Sources do not say what the charge is, but the Russia connection proves the FBI is Trumps worst enemy yet again.

    The scary aspect is , if Trump gets that 2nd term....just how many more thousands of people will he see die under his regime of Clovid as he bungles his way through for months and months ? How many more will die due to his handling of it ? Were past the 215,000+ mark a week or 2 ago. Just how many more will die from this ?

    Enough people need to turn out on the right side that the electoral college can't go to the wrong side. I spent a long time complaining about how W never won in 2000 too, but that doesn't undo the damage his administration did.

    I know minorities were going to be disproportionately affected, but is Trump really dumb enough to actually endanger his own base... Never mind, that should obvious.

    A win for democracy today and a lose for the GOP (kinda the same thing). The Supreme Court split evenly on the issue of Pennsylvania allowing extended mail-in voting. The split will maintain the lower court's ruling which lets state officials count ballots received after Election Day, unless there is evidence they were sent after the deadline. So a massive blow to Trump's attempted of voter suppression by sabotaging the USPS.

    Even if Trump is kicked out this term, he's going to keep making it difficult to handle the Covid crisis. Biden will never be able to implement any sort of health and safety policy that Trump supporters will follow, not after months of Trump talking down the plague, calling scientists idiots, scapegoating people, and saying it's only him that can save everyone. Just a few days ago, a Governor was almost kidnapped and murdered by anti-mask protesters ranting about Democrats coming to steal their rights. That's just going to get worse. What about a vaccine, will they take it coming from Biden? I wouldn't expect it. I do expect the elected GOP to do everything they can to obstruct any sensible healthcare policy coming out of the Whitehouse, or any policy at all really.

    No, next year is going to be nasty, one way or the other. I just hope that Trump hasn't permanently poisoned the well of the US's ability to deal with infectious diseases, or even after Covid passes this could all start again.

    I think it should be noted that as long as they have the postmark, they will be counted.

    By the way, Sand Point and Kodiak Alaska are having a ton of earthquakes right now following some 7.5 7.4 7.3 quakes.

    Things are definitely going to be scary for a long while.

    I really hope his Twitter account gets deleted. He's always insinuating calls to violence but if he's defeated next month he'll for sure make things even worse.

    I’ve maintained that Trump would turn a second term into a full blown revenge tour, getting back at all his enemies, both real and perceived, siccing Droopy Dogg Barr and DOJ on anyone and everyone he wants jailed. Speaking of COVID:

    Trump targets Fauci instead of COVID-19 as infections and deaths rise

    No doubt that rant came after Fauci blamed Trump for contracting the virus by not taking precautions to protect himself.
