Outcome Is Still Pending

It’s been a tough couple of weeks leading up to the U.S. presidential election this past Tuesday. And still, we sit in suspense three days later waiting for the fat lady to sing so that we’ll finally know, definitively, what the final outcome will be.

I surmise that in his zeal to stay in office (and potentially to avoid prosecution for his crimes), Donald Trump will pull out all the legal stops to try to invalidate what stands now as a four million vote lead in the popular vote and a narrow Electoral College victory.

His divisive rhetoric, his claims of fraud with no supporting evidence, his unjustified lawsuits, and his threat to have the Supreme Court, rather than American voters, decide the election, are intended to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the election and to further divide the country and to stow discontent.

This behavior alone is enough to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Donald Trump does not deserve to serve another four year term as President of the United States. In fact, it proves that he shouldn’t have been elected to serve a first term.

    Donald Trump has no proof, so he can whine all he wants, but in the end he will have to leave.

    A leader in one state (who might’ve been indicating a federal rule that applies to all states or might’ve been telling us how that state, one key to the outcome, works) said the votes from the military and other citizens of the US who are overseas aren’t due until November tenth (and I believe their counting comes after that).

      Apparently, some military votes were reported this morning. And they went, the majority, for Biden.

    When a small child has a temper tantrum, one tactic is to leave the child alone to work out his tantrum. This strikes me the same, except Trump is bigger than that small child, and it will take longer to work out the tantrum. The decision is close, and should be determined today or tomorrow morning, and Biden will act the parent when that time comes.

    Yes, I agree that he should never been elected in the first place.

    I just read that everyone at the WH except Donnypoo and a couple close aides are resigned to losing and leaving…

        I was just watching one Republican (inactive, non-Trump) comment that his willingness or unwillingness to leave the White House is one relatively minor issue. His unwillingness to admit he lost? Not a problem. Regardless. whatever he does, the new president WILL be put in office and Trump WILL leave. Bet on it.

          I hope so, Marilyn.

    I think if they don’t call it soon, they are going to completely lose their audience — like me — and I’m an election ADDICT. I have nothing against caution, but gimme a break. Sheesh.

      The media is still intimidated by Trump and they’re afraid to call it even though it’s a done deal.

    To top it all off, I’ve read that this is all theater to keep his base energized for when he runs again in 2024. Heaven help us….

    He’ll either be dead by then, or in court for valid charges for things that occurred during his current term. He may try to run, and Ivanka, too, but it’ll never happen!
