What Say You?

As most people know, the outcome of the recent presidential election isn’t really in doubt, yet Dear Leader continues to dispute the results.

No news there.

But the question becomes:  Will he … can he … succeed in his efforts? Or will he FINALLY go down in defeat?

According to Politico, in order for Trump to overcome election results, some unprecedented legal steps would be required.

  • Republican-led legislatures in states Biden won would need to move to overturn their state’s popular vote and appoint a slate of Trump electors when the Electoral College meets on Dec. 14.
  • Since such maneuvers would be certain to meet vetoes from Democratic governors, the lawmakers would also need to secure a legal determination that they hold the sole power to appoint electors — a disputed legal premise that has never been tested.

Both actions are considered long shots; however, as most of us know, Trump is desperate.

So what say you?

No sure? Perhaps try consulting your crystal ball. Or do a bit of ommmm and see what the universe says. Or … I know! Ask your Republican neighbor!

Or better yet, make an educated guess.

Name Your Sources, Trump

Letter to the Editor published in today’s local newspaper:

President Trump said that all information put out by the press should have a named source attached to it. Why doesn’t he show the way by naming the sources of his “information?”

  • Who counted the votes for him and told him that he won the popular vote in November?
  • Who told him that most undocumented Mexicans were “bad hombres?”
  • Where does he get his information about Muslims?
  • Who told him that torturing suspects is ethical and really works?

When asked why he incorrectly claimed that his Electoral College victory was the largest in modern history, he simply said “Someone told me.”

I think sources are important and, if Trump thinks so too, he should show us how it’s done.
