Vice President Mike Pence on Friday offered yet another signal that the Trump administration has no plans to concede any ground to Joe Biden’s claims to the presidency amid President Trump’s continued refusal to acknowledge his clear loss in his reelection bid.


During a speech to the Council for National Policy, a conservative think tank, Pence was met with chants of “Four more years! Four more years! Four more years!” according to a transcript of the speech put out by the White House.

“That’s the plan,” Pence responded, later stating in his remarks, “I promise you: We will keep fighting until every legal vote is counted, until every illegal vote is thrown out, and we will never stop fighting to make America great again.”

Trump probably watches OAN 24/7 now, since he's done with FOX.

If I watch OAN will they tell me that I'm 25 and extremely wealthy and the Patriots have the best record in the NFL and are going to win the Super Bowl? Maybe that will work.

Remember "alternative facts" circa Kellyanne Conway? No need for reality.

This refusal to acknowledge the results, the truth is so dangerous. Continues to divide and divide and increase the temperature in the room till it just combusts.

The Democrats better get the messaging together because if not they’ll get destroyed in 2022 and 2024.

The cards are still stacked against them with the obstruction in the senate, the gop gains in state houses so they’ll gerrymander to make winning even more difficult with high turnout, and of course the gains that gop made with their high turnout (especially with non white)

Focus on what the party does for people. It’s the party that gives you healthcare, that regulates big business, that passes relief bills, that digs a country out of a recession

Stop with the identity politics, and actually do something to fix injustice. Kneeling on the floor of Congress is a nice symbol, but so is passing legislation that fixes injustice

I really hope my gut feeling is wrong, but i can’t help but feel that Biden was just a bump in the road towards the evil that’s yet to come from the GOP authoritarian slide

Thinking maybe we should have been more proactive when had the ability to make meaningful changes. This is nuts. Minority rule!

I'm looking forward to the 60 Minutes Obama interview tonight.

I'm sure Trump will be watching, if he can stop tweeting about the rigged election.

This is still an absurd way to represent the numbers. It assumes the senators were elected unanimously, it’s biased.

The issue with the senate is the same issue with the electoral college - the “winner take all” notion. It’s like calling Florida or Texas a “red” state right now. Nearly half of voters in both states are not represented in the senate with their choice.

but whether you voted for them or not, and regardless of the margin of victory, your senator represents you.

No I understand the point of what was written and I’m not contesting it.

I’m just saying that it’s nonsensical to me that the senate is somehow vastly disproportionate by 41 million. It’s in fact just as lopsided as the electoral college... it leans right even though the nation leans left. There’s nothing wrong with the concept of two senators per state, but there’s everything wrong with the concept of 1) lack of representation for blue non-states and 2) the immense power of the senate.

Win Georgia and begin righting all these wrongs.

It would be fantastic if every state just did congressional delegation to the EC where the state winner directs the two senate electors.

Do away with this notion that Floridians and people of Ohio deserve more money spent on them than blue Texas or red California.

I know you all were wondering, so I thought I should tell you that Candace Owens — who is not on the Democrat Plantation — thinks Harry Styles just ended Western Civilization by wearing a dress on the cover of Vogue.

Can't fathom being a Trump supporter and defender and worrying about Harry Styles wearing a dress and the resulting downfall of men. That is seriously screwed up.

Real men wear wigs and slather their faces in orange makeup and trade in gossip and think gold is tasteful, apparently.

At least Dubya made an attempt by endlessly "clearing brush" on his Texas Ranch.

Yes, take us back to the good old days of Rock 'N' Roll, when men were men.

Like the 90's.



Or maybe that was the 60's.

Well not to mention Trump's obvious misogyny and mistreatment of women. That's what a real "non feminized" man is?

If Harry Styles is accused of that sort of thing then I'll care about him. Until then he can layer on the pearls and wear dresses.
