Trump floats idea of postponing the election....

Makes me sick. Fauci and family getting death threats
So some GOP activists appear to possibly be preying on a mentally ill man in an attempt
Iím sure itís just a public service this GOP election lawyer is performing in WI
Oh the nerve on that woman.
So ####ing sleazy. #VoteThemOut
missed the 5 pm deadline, lets see if the rules get adjusted
GOP also helping him in Colorado
Pretty clearly exploiting him, trying to pull votes from Biden*
Florida needs more hurricanes
you mean Frorida*
Trump threatens to sue Nevada for sending a mail ballot to every registered voter.
In an illegal late night coup, Nevadaís clubhouse Governor made it impossible for Republicans to win the state. Post Office could never handle the Traffic of Mail-In Votes without preparation. Using Covid to steal the state. See you in Court! https://t.co/cNSPINgCY7

"post office could never handle the traffic"
lulz....delivered volume of mail in 2019 was 142B, or
I get 4 or 5 pieces of junk mail/catalogs a day. I'm pretty sure they can handle it...
impossible for republicans to win bc people are allowed to vote? got it*
lulz. SOOooooOOOoooo true. *
You mean like Oregon has done legally for a while now?
It's great. Never had a problem that I know of*
No media allowed at rnc*
Great. Donít cover it.
Maybe he'll use that as an excuse to drop out.
I could see him ďcatchingĒ the Rona and dropping out
Right. I donít think he wants to remain President all that bad.
He believes he will be indicted for numerous financial crimes as soon as he is no longer
even still, he will just escape to russia*
Can you imagine, a former president in exile in Russia. He could hang out with Snowden!*
Well that could be true.
Well you can probably scratch Karen Bass from the Veepstakes...
seriously? dear god.*
I think the Venceremos Brigade would have been enough, but yeah, this should finish it. *
Only once before has a VP pick been so bad as to torpedo the candidate for me.
Biden is going to pick Harris
her or Warren would be solid choices*
I think you are right. I still think his best choice would have been Cortez Masto
Harris' only flaw (if you want to call it that) is that she is too conservative with criminal
Thatís a feature, not a bug for most of America.*
Iím not sure thatís a weakness in the general election
I may be biased since I follow a lot of progressive folks on social media
Hereís the one thing the party needs to do
Absolutely 100% truth. And most people know that. But there is a sense of restlessness among
there is a problem, IMO, with this way of thinking
Iíd expect the Democratic platform will be relatively liberal on crime/police issues, though
I donít think thatís needed this election
Well, she was his Tim Kaine so good riddance
66 years old.*
Too young for a leadership position?*
Yup. You need to be old enough for dementia to represent my government*
You donít want an impulsive, crazy young Turk like Pence near the levers of power.*
61 years old? He might let the gheys marry! Cant put him in power*
Is Scientologyís belief system more or less crazy than QAnon?*
Itís degrees of crazy.
trying to sabotage the census too
But more importantly, what does Johnny Dakota think?*
Also, itís so shady they just assumed Moose was on the wacky tobaccy because he dresses like a biker
Even more suspicious since Moose was a dumb football jock in every other episode.
Trump Admin. says delaying elections undermines democracy...
Trump sabotaging postal service to slow down mail in ballots
I think thatís just one of the benefits.
Really? Seems odd, since the main people hurt if the USPS tanks will be rural voters*
In Illinois, at least, I thought I read that you can drop your mail-in ballots
Intentionally sabotaging voting? Probably not
This sounds like a nutty conspiracy theory.
I never believe in conspiracy theories
Our mail in this area is an absolute disaster. We get mail maybe 1-2 days a week
Iím waiting for a package from USPS, last status update was July 23*
i'd be fine with 1/week mail delivery
3 times this week we've gotten bundles of mail for places a few blocks away*
We got our mail at 730 last night. Among it were 4 week old newspapers. What a mess.*
it aint gonna help him!!!*
co-founder of the Federalist Society calls for his impeachment
co-founder of the Federalist Society can read polls
Yep. These folks came around (publicly at least) on segregation too*
DT lite: Atlantic article on how Trump could use the states to steal the election
There's a lot that is simply factually incorrect in that article
well that's comforting*
also, the central premise is never happening*
and today the Appeals court revives the Micheal Flynn case
FWIW, Pompeo testified today under oath that Bill Barr's DOJ will determine whether to delay the
Obama just burned Trump pretty well.*
HERE'S A LINK:
Good job baby-sitting people*
i guess Iíll just use my ####ing imagination to figure out what he said*
He just summed up all the actions Trump is taking to suppress liberal voting
Sounds more like a compliment for Trump*
Trump doesn't know who George Wallace was*
"i never saw his show in vegas."*
Famous leader of the Scots, played by George Clooney in a movie
Not George Clooney , George C. Scott*
Let me know what you come up with.*
I'm sure it was a real zinger whatever it was *
Well Obama was just talking to me so...*
That's not really what he said*
I don't think that's a fair characterization of what he said*
this is the mediaite headline: Pompeo Refuses to Say If Trump Can Move Election Date....
Larue linked it below. Seems pretty clear he was just speaking off the cuff to move along*
i am not that smart but i am not sure thats how it works*
Both houses of Congress have to vote to delay
Here's another way it could go - voting by mail issues
this thread on the conservative subreddit is actually pretty good
Delete this thread, Brum, Cornyn says it was all a joke
GOP Sen Cornyn tells reporters Trumpís election-delay tweet was a joke ďso all you guys in the press, your heads will explode and you'll write about itĒ

He pinned the tweet to the top. Definitely something youíd do with a joke*
definitely something youíd do when you don't want to talk about the gdp*
well I hope the press feels properly owned for reporting on the presidents actual words
someone just died while owning the libs
Start the countdown to Trump confirming that it was not in any way a joke*
"I don't kid."*
For a guy who seemingly has no sense of humor
Brumby hates jokes*
Itís great that with any public comment the president makes, the generous interpretation...
"he's not a dictator, you guys, he's just a shithead. gotcha!"*
Nit: less than half the population*
"Look at you all so up in arms about trampling our tradition of peaceful transitions of power....
Get ready for them to pull up the clips of Dems wanting the Wisconsin primaries postponed
Well, I suppose that's better than a GOP Senator backing this crazy shit.
Why can't any of them just say explicitly that Trump is wrong?*
Bc they are yes men pussies with 0 morals or backbone
Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger said he would oppose any attempts to delay the election
Edit: And marshMac below
Edit: And marshMac below
I don't know much about Kinzinger
McConnell stated the election will not be delayed. So did Rubio and others*
While I agree there is 0 chance the elections gets delayed, the word of those guys
It would benefit them to delay the election*
Eh, CNN has a story up with a bunch of Republicans saying thereís no chance or
And Joni Ernst bravely saying 'not answering any questions.' *
you know this answer*
Do people really think Trump is that powerful?
yes he is, you can't be anti-trump and get elected as a Pub unless you are Romney
To the extent that is true, it's their fault for enabling this all to happen
of course i do
The GOP must be destroyed and a new conservative party formed
How many people you think are going to be in that party? *
I think there are a lot more than we would expect and I also think once Trumpism dies, a lot of
I'd like to believe that. *
Are we sure it has changed that much, or are they jusr saying the quiet parts out loud?
Reagan and Bush had a debate about amnesty for illegal aliens, it's changed that much*
OTOH, you can draw a pretty straight line from the Southern Strategy to the way the party operates
The GOP spent 40 years undermining the public's faith in the press
I put that under Fox News*
I mean, how messed up is it that experts believe that polls are skewed
aka, "he didn't know he couldn't do that, so he now has to say it was a joke."*
My much bigger election fear is mail-in ballots being a shit show.
Well, we have one profile in courage already.
Wow, the people that run Herman Cainís twitter account...
and they were saying he was on oxygen, but essentially fine aside from that*
So what is the backstory on this one?
Isnít it wildly illegal for him to endorse a business?*
I think it's illegal for everyone besides the president*
I doubt it*
it's supposed to be, though nothing will be done about it.*
I don't know, but someone's gonna want to check that basement. *
or qanon, according to the comments*
Bill Maher is going to have so much fun claiming donuts on this *
Is he back from hiatus tomorrow or next Friday?*
Fantastic, heís my Saturday morning podcast as Dixie and go get coffee
two things. first, what in his mind (i know) is the difference between mail in & absentee? second...
2nd Amendment: SO IMPORTANT! 20th Amendment: IGNORE.*
Heís not that big on the first either*
Heís approaching Tyson Crazy. Is there anything at this point you could suggest Trump doing
Solve a problem through effective planning, organization, and follow through.*
Show normal human emotion*
this is also why mmac and I were uncomfortable with state elections being delayed*
Just another attempt to distract from how inept he is. *
focusing more on the election, I mean this is doable if he really wants to*
What's doable? *
delaying the election/transfer of power*
There just isn't a mechanism for it. There isn't "an" election for President, there are 50 of them.
You don't need it to be right, you just need enough people to accept it and no way to fight it*
I donít think itís possible at all
they don't have to allow it. How are they going to enforce their not allowing it?*
similarly, how is trump going to delay the election?
what if some states don't do elections (just as a hypothetical response)*
Here's a fun exercise on what that might look like:
then they have no representation in Congress*
right. But specifically with respect to president, the constitution doesn't say there has to be an
A State could just completely sit it out and it would be fine. On January 6, the
i don't think so
Constitution won''t matter if he can find a gray area and no one stands up for it. He is openly defy
The election of President is a dead man's switch. There's no way for the current guy to legally just
He also has Barr on his side*
Barr has no power outside of what is conferred by the President.
those are a lot of very definitive statements without a lot of things to back them up*
If Donald Trump is still President on 1/21/21, then he is the least of our worries*
If Trump is still the president on that day, then he is the cause of all of those worries*
Sort of. More like the conduit through which they're expressed.
I agree and disagree, so much of our democratic norms rely on the whims (mostly good-natured)
But those were norms because they was no explicit allowance for them in the consitution
Doable how? Not by him alone right?*
Whoa, Herman Cain dead from Covid it appears*
Hoax! Herman Cain was a crisis actor. Donít let the liberal media lie to you*
May his 9/9/9 taxation plan live on*
Is that the ďbiggestĒ one so far? *
Wow! A true Trump casualty.
A fair price to pay to see Donny Live and Unhinged.*
Maybe he'll go to that funeral service. *
I can't believe that particular act of pettiness didn't draw more condemnation.
He's the first President that I can ever recall who flat out wasn't welcome at funerals
He knew he wasnít welcome*
He's too busy preparing to throw out the first pitch at a Marlins game.*
so Trump needs to distract because this news is bad for him, so let's move the election
I assumed he was trying to distract from the horribly bad GDP numbers or
that too, it's all about changing the subject with him
He attended the Tulsa rally sans mask. *
Wow, didn't he supposedly catch that at the OKC rally?*
Oh well, Trump has already virtually capitulated in Michigan.*
Not their Man of the Year!*
Catapulted into Lake Michigan *
Trump: Bring all your kids back to school and everyone go to work. Probably unsafe to vote, though!*
One minute weíre hearing how everything is going great, businesses and schools should open
LOL, or this*
Heís taking the actions of a guy who knows heís going to lose. A desperate man*
Really looking forward to December when heís giving Alaska to Russia and pardoning JizzLane.*
Requires act of Congress. Good luck with that.
"We're not Nazis, we're just following orders!"
well, at least bigbop is getting the rule of law he voted for *
hey all you cool cats and kittens
Well, thankfully, Haighter is back....
thank you for coming back to confirm that my characterization of your opinion was spot on*
He just agreed that Black people are disadvantaged and makes no mention of genetics or culture.
no he didn't
Let's see here.
exactly. a whole lot of what and no why
But also far away from your assertion that he doesnít believe Black people are at a disadvantage.
disadvantage is structural
Lol, so you donít actually do any work or give any money to help disadvantaged communities
Racism is a lot more complex than you believe it to be
You have this imagined caricature of me and won't change your mind
you have a chance to change my mind right now
thanks for answering
some questions for you
Probably because the Nigerian immigrants that make it here are their highest achievers
Haha I completely forgot about that crazy bastard*
I love that guy, he's a great guy too*
I agree. He is a really nice guy.*
I would gladly have a beer with Big Bop, seems like a good dude
proving snipes' point below*
Which point specifically? I'm having a hard time following the whole thread*
last paragraph of the post you responded to likening him to chad*
Admittedly, I didn't know a lot of the history of big bop
Unpossible. He's a conservative.
Damn, wish I would have seen this Phil bomb earlier*
maybe not the devil, but not into nuance and good faith debate*
he doesn't think black people are disadvantaged in this country
can't get much more textbook racist than that.
This is a very common belief. I don't think it's fair or helpful to label people as bad for
I was having a conversation with my parents on Father's Day
that's well put, and obviously a very nice overarching standard
As for (1), that's a concern particular to each person, whereas I'm speaking broadly here
you're 100% correct in the psychology behind engagement and persuasion
Taking a lot of liberties with the definition of ďprivilege.Ē*
i thought about your point 1, but don't know the history with this particular poster*
I personally had that discussion with him
The way you feel about Bigbop is the way I feel about Chad
I completely understand your point, but it makes me think of discussions I had about gay marriage
that's a great point
I concur that as I have gotten older I have developed more of a willingness
all very good points. i never called him "bad", but you can obviously tell i hold racism higher up
Not directed personally toward you (or anyone), to be clear
To blame black people for abandoning the traditional family structure
I'm stealing the shit out of this*
Well yes, *I* think that is plainly true*
if only black people pulled themselves up by their bootstraps like he did! *
I wouldn't call him crazy or even necessarily a bad person but he definitely bought
racists are bad people*
Maybe if people hadn't been so shitty we could ask him*
Were people shitty? I don't recall when he left.*
but we're the only ones in the echo chamber*
I'm not saying we don't largely have an echo chamber
Your echo chamber agrees on level of terror.*
Re: Trump floats idea of postponing the election....
Unless he can get a sizeable portion of the military on his side, it's all noise
he knows he can't win fairly, so he's all about distractions, fraud, and BS like this*
Of course, but when tens of millions of people believe him it's a huge problem
