It’s Thursday aka Thanksgiving is one week from today.
We’ve entered What Fresh Hell is This?, Day 16.
For What Fresh Hell is This?, Day 16, the Outgoing President Whiny Ass Bitch has tweeted 13 times and retweeted 4 times so far.
12:27 a.m. D.C., time.
1. @’s Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and OANN.
I have no idea what he’s talking about. When I Googled Statistical sampling to prove widespread voter fraud, my first hit was to this PDF written by The Heritage Foundation posted at whitehouse.gov. The PDF is 381 pages long titled “A Sampling of Election Fraud Cases From Across The Country.”
When I Google multiple accounts of fraud and voting irregularities may overturn election, the first hit I get is an article published on Wednesday @ dailymail.co.uk., which mentions the tweet, but provides no context for that tweet.
12:41 a.m. D.C., time.
2. Posts a YouTube clip from a November 15th, OAN segment regarding Dominion.
I made 24 seconds, she begins her “news” spot standing outside our White House, saying, “While voter fraud deniers continue to proclaim the perfection of the U.S. election system. Skeptics are looking at irregular patterns in vote data,” she then goes on to talk about the debunked conspiracy theory of voting software switching votes Election Lose Denier to President-Elect Joe Biden.
7:17 a.m. D.C., time.
3. Shares a tweet from Tuesday.
7:19 a.m. D.C., time.
4. Says he was honored to help…
Matt Wolking’s Twitter bio says he’s the “Deputy Director of Communications” for Real Dummies campaign. Wolking links to a Daily Wire article published on Tuesday. The article focuses on the gains made this election by the Republicans in the House.
7:30 a.m. D.C., time.
5. Shares a tweet from the New York Times, that he shared on Wednesday.
I can’t even…he gives the election legitimacy in tweet #4 down ballot, with Republicans gaining seats in the House, but somehow, President-Elect Biden’s win is because they rigged the election, but failed to rig it so President-Elect Biden would have more support in the House and the Senate?
7:31 a.m. D.C., time.
6. Tells someone they did a great job on his Fox & Friends show.
Speaking of Fox & Friends…
7:33 a.m. D.C., time.
7:42 a.m. D.C., time.
7. Talks about the coronavirus vaccines.
8. Whines in partial all caps the “PROPLE” now have access to covid-19 drugs, but the “MEDIA” won’t talk about that…
PROPLE =’s people. I’m not sure how he managed that typo.
11:36 a.m. D.C., time.
He replaced the tweet changing PROPLE to PEOPLE.
On Wednesday the U.S., reached the grim milestone of having 250,000 recorded deaths due to the coronavirus.
NBC News was first to report the news that in 10 months the U.S., has lost 250,000 souls.
The Covid-19 tracking project reported on Wednesday that 1,869 people had died from the virus, with 164,000 people testing positive for the virus.
It’s very frustrating that we are here again, our third or fourth spike. Masks work, social distancing works. Our goal, yes, should be to limit death, but overall our goal, should be to not burden the already burdened medical system. To remember that like a pebble across the water our ripples, our choices, can cause waves to those around us, that we cannot see.
It is a blessing that there is now treatments for some that increase the likely hood they survive, however, that should not be permission to act irresponsible to forget that our choices do and can have lasting harmful impacts on our fellow man.
7:46 a.m. D.C., time.
9. Is back to lying about our election.

This tweet reflects drama which unfolded Tuesday evening, between two Republican canvassers and two Democrat canvassers in Wayne County.
Some 3 hours later the Wayne County Board of canvassers agreed to certify the election results.
On Wednesday the same two Republican canvassers announced their intent to rescind their certification of the election results.
As if it couldn't get any wilder at the Wayne County board of canvassers:The republican members are now seeking to rescind certification, despite the fact that the motion officially passed, certification papers were signed, & records were sent to secretary of state this AM— Kayla Ruble (@RubleKB) November 19, 2020
AP News on Thursday explained it as follows:
In Michigan, two Republican election officials in the state’s largest county initially refused to certify results despite no evidence of fraud, then backtracked and voted to certify and then on Wednesday flipped again and said they “remain opposed to certification.” Some Republicans have called on the GOP statewide canvassers to so the same. In Arizona, officials are balking at signing off on vote tallies in a rural county.
The moves don’t reflect a coordinated effort across the battleground states that broke for Biden, local election officials said. Instead, they seem to be inspired by Trump’s incendiary rhetoric about baseless fraud and driven by Republican acquiescence to broadsides against the nation’s electoral system as state and federal courts push aside legal challenges filed by Trump and his allies.AP News. 11/19/2020.
Nestled inside the AP story is this tidbit of news.
In Wayne County, the two Republican canvassers at first balked at certifying the vote, winning praise from Trump, and then reversed course after widespread condemnation. A person familiar with the matter said Trump reached out to the canvassers, Monica Palmer and William Hartmann, on Tuesday evening after the revised vote to express gratitude for their support. Then, on Wednesday, Palmer and Hartmann signed affidavits saying they believe the county vote “should not be certified.”AP News. 11/19/2020.
Time is running short for Trump. Across the nation, recounts and court challenges must wrap up and election results must be certified by Dec. 8. That’s the constitutional deadline ahead of the Electoral College meeting the following week.
Kayla Ruble explained on Wednesday that even though the two Republican canvassers now want take-backsies the move is unlikely to prevail.
While, Palmer and Hartmann have signed affidavits seeking to revoke their certification, Vice Chair Kinloch assures me the deal is already done. Lawsuits withstanding, as election lawyers have explained to me, the deadline is also a hard stop, and the deadline was yesterday.— Kayla Ruble (@RubleKB) November 19, 2020
What people likely missed on Tuesday night, after Wayne County canvassers voted to certify, Kinloch into'd a 2nd motion waving reconsideration, meaning the board wouldn't be able to revisit, explicitly because he suspected the Republicans wld come under pressure today #Foresight— Kayla Ruble (@RubleKB) November 19, 2020

12. He’s being told dead people voted.
Here’s the thing, when a person dies, it’s up to the person’s family, to ask the state to remove that dead person from the voter roll.
I learned this when my grandmother passed away in the late 90’s. We had to take, her birth & death certificate, and drivers license to her county’s election office. They in turn notified the state of California that she was deceased and would not be voting anymore. The states are limited, they can’t legally just remove a name as names are common and shared among more than one person. The same steps are suppose to be taken when a person moves from a state or just across town. Our responsibility not in fact the election offices.
Daniel Dale, is on vacation again. Not that he hasn’t earned, I just miss him when he’s gone.
