It’s Thursday aka What Fresh Hell is This?, Day 36.

For What Fresh Hell is This?, Day 36, President “Desperately Attempting to Cling to His Base aka Maintain the Grifting” Trump, has tweeted 12 times and retweeted 3 times, so far.

1. All caps words…

9:24 a.m. D.C., time.

2. Says that 78 percent of the people believe, no, “(know!)”, the election was “RIGGED” and that there is still a chance for the Supreme Court to save the country.

On November 9th, according to a POLITICO/Morning Consult Poll 70 percent of Republicans now say, after the election was called for Biden/Harris, that the election was not “free or fair.”

From the Politico article:

70 percent of Republicans now say they don’t believe the 2020 election was free and fair, a stark rise from the 35 percent of GOP voters who held similar beliefs before the election. Meanwhile, trust in the election system grew for Democrats, many who took to the streets to celebrate Biden’s victory on Saturday. Ninety percent of Democrats now say the election was free and fair, up from 52 percent before Nov. 3 who thought it would be.

Among those who believed that the election wasn’t free and fair, 78 percent believed that mail-in voting led to widespread voter fraud and 72 percent believed that ballots were tampered with — both claims that have made a constant appearance on the president’s Twitter thread. Like President Donald Trump, a majority of the people that thought the election was unfair, 84 percent, said it benefited Biden.

Politico. 11/09/2020

Methodology; The POLITICO/Morning Consult poll was conducted Nov. 6-9, surveying 1,987 registered voters. Some interviews were done before the race was called, but the majority were after the official call. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.

On November 18th, 2020, Reuters reported that based on a new Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll, that about “half of all Republicans believe President Donald Trump “rightfully won” the U.S. election but that it was stolen from him by widespread voter fraud that favored Democratic President-elect Joe Biden.”

From the article:

The Nov. 13-17 opinion poll showed that Trump’s open defiance of Biden’s victory in both the popular vote and Electoral College appears to be affecting the public’s confidence in American democracy, especially among Republicans.

Altogether, 73% of those polled agreed that Biden won the election while 5% thought Trump won. But when asked specifically whether Biden had “rightfully won,” Republicans showed they were suspicious about how Biden’s victory was obtained.

Fifty-two percent of Republicans said that Trump “rightfully won,” while only 29% said that Biden had rightfully won.

Reuters. 11/18/2020.

Methodology; The Reuters/Ipsos poll was conducted online, in English, throughout the United States. It gathered responses from 1,346 respondents, including 598 Democrats and 496 Republicans, and has a credibility interval, a measure of precision, of 5 percentage points.

As to the Supreme Court; the Court gave those states named in the Texas long-shot lawsuit filed on December 8th, 2020, until Thursday at 3 p.m. D.C., time, to file their responses.

All eyes as they say are watching/waiting to see, if the Court moves as swiftly as it did when dismissing the Congressman from PA, Republican Mike Kelly’s ill-fated appeal to the Supreme Court. Which was shortly after PA responded to his appeal on December 8th, 2020.

The Texas complaint can be found here, the amicus brief filed by the 17 states in support of the Texas complaint can be found here, and Losers motion to intervene can be found here.

3. Is really stupid.

The New York Times 2020 Presidential Election Map. 12/10/2020.

CNN reported on Wednesday that “all 50 states and the District of Columbia have now certified their presidential results, according to CNN’s tally, as the Electoral College process moves forward with the meeting of electors on Monday.”

I’m sensing a pattern.

4. Dogs Republican Governor of Georgia, appears to be encouraging boot-licker former Congressman of Georgia, who failed to gain enough votes to be Senator from Georgia, Doug Collins to challenge Kemp.

Again, with the signatures, a thoroughly debunk bullshit soundbite. As I have mentioned several times now, Georgia required a verification of voter signatures two-times this election, first when the voter requested a mail-in ballot, and again when that filled-out ballot was returned. The only signatures that were verified once, were those registered voters that had their GA Divers Lic., linked to their voter registration.

The above tweet is what we political junkies refer to as “eating their own.”

9:31 a.m. D.C. time.

5. Shares words of WISDOM & COURAGE from his number 1 ball-licker Sean Hannity.

9:33 a.m. D.C., time.

6. & 7. Is our daily reminder that there is no bottom.

Soapbox…

Not one Republican or so called damn conservative, better tell me again, it’s the Democrats that are calling for unrest. Not. A. Damn. One. Of. Them.
This is the current sitting President of the United States of America calling for violence in his name, it’s not even subtle. And all those so-called patriots calling for martial law, should be a damn ashamed of themselves.

*Climbs down off soapbox*

9:37 a.m. D.C., time.

8. After calling for violence he shares another debunked voter fraud claim.

10:12 a.m. D.C., time.

9. Tells us he won the election.

They have failed to prove fraud. Hell, they aren’t in court, even alleging fraud.

There wasn’t mass fraud, he just lost.

11:09 a.m. D.C., time.
11:10 a.m. D.C., time.
11:10 a.m. D.C., time.

10. Try’s.
11. To appear.
12. Presidential.

After his early call for violence tweets, I’m unable to give him any credit for what appears it might be something “good.”

AP News reports that as part of the deal between Israel and Morocco, which would “restore diplomatic and other relations, including the immediate reopening of liaison offices in Tel Aviv and Rabat and the eventual opening of embassies. U.S. officials said there would be joint overflight rights for airlines,” the U.S., will “recognize Morocco’s claim over the disputed Western Sahara region.”

The U.S. will recognize Morocco’s claim over Western Sahara, the former Spanish territory in North Africa where a long-running dispute has confounded international negotiators for decades. Trump noted that Morocco had been the first country to recognize the United States as an independent nation just a year after the U.S. declared its independence from Britain in 1776.

Morocco is the fourth Arab nation to recognize Israel as the Trump administration seeks to expand a diplomatic framework that began over the summer with an agreement between the Jewish state and the United Arab Emirates.

He’s rewarding the Republican AG’s attempts to undermine our election with lunch.

Waiting. Waiting. Waiting…
