North Carolina must be Trump's favourite political son.

Pat McCrory Lost the North Carolina Governorship. Now He’s Trying to Steal It.

Quote:
Yet nearly two weeks later, McCrory still refuses to concede. Instead, he and his legal team are baselessly alleging that the results were tainted by fraud, petitioning election boards to review the results and determine their validity.
[...]
His real goal appears to be to delegitimize the results to such an extent that the state legislature—which holds a Republican supermajority—can step in and select him as the winner. North Carolina state law states that when “a contest arises out of the general election,” and that contest pertains “to the conduct or results of the election,” the legislature “shall determine which candidate received the highest number of votes” and “declare that candidate to be elected.” By alleging fraud, mishandling of ballots, and irregular vote-counting, McCrory is laying the groundwork for the legislature to proclaim that a “contest” has arisen as to “the conduct or results of the election.” At that point, it can step in, assert that McCrory received “the highest number” of legitimate votes, and “declare [him] to be elected.”

The best part? Under the law, the legislature’s decision is “not reviewable” by the courts. Republican legislators can simply step in, overturn the decision of the voters, and grant McCrory another term. The courts have no authority even to review the legality of their actions.
Quote:
While McCrory works to reverse the results of his election, the legislature is contemplating a plan to effectively negate a state Supreme Court contest. On Election Day, voters ousted a conservative justice and replaced him with a progressive, tipping the court’s balance of power toward Democrats. Republican legislators so feared this result that they attempted to bar the progressive candidate from running, passing a law that was struck down as unconstitutional. Now they are floating a plan to pack the court, expanding it from seven to nine members—and allowing McCrory to name its two new members, thereby conserving its conservative majority. The legislature passed HB2 in 12 hours. It could ram through a court-packing bill just as quickly.
Pat McCrory is trying to steal the North Carolina governorship.

I highly doubt he means this, nor does he really care. It's likely a tiny bit of damage control from his advisers. When most of the basis of your campaign is racism and othering, you don't suddenly 'denounce' it.

I feel like every sentence about Trump should legitimately start with "holy fuck".
yeah that made me laugh... can't see it happening - Farage is a clown! it would almost be as bad as, say, Boris Johnson being British Foreign Secretary or something

oh fuck

And if you want more sex-ed and access to birth control, the people you need to convince are fellow Republicans - democrats have been on your side on that issue for decades. Mike Pence, the freedom caucus and the tea partiers in congress certainly don't agree with you.

The dude has appointed white nationalists and racists to high positions, so a few tokenistic words mean absolutely shit-all compared to his actions.

And yet his supporters lap it up despite so much evidence to the contrary. Critical thinking skills are apparently a rare talent when it comes to this entire election.

“To think otherwise is a complete misrepresentation of the movement that united Americans from all backgrounds.”

If you buy that I have bridge named after David Duke up for sale. I'll make you a tremendous offer. One of the greatest offers ever. It's bigly.

"Darkness is good," says Bannon, who amid the suits surrounding him at Trump Tower, looks like a graduate student in his T-shirt, open button-down and tatty blue blazer — albeit a 62-year-old graduate student. "Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That's power. It only helps us when they" — I believe by "they" he means liberals and the media, already promoting calls for his ouster — "get it wrong. When they're blind to who we are and what we're doing."
We all know how the evangelicals love SATAN. No hypocrisy here, move right along.

Trump won't pursue charges of Hillary Clinton. Because, of course, there aren't any to pursue

Trump canceles on the record interview with NYT day after cursing out news executives of major networks.

Because while the 2nd Amendment as sacred and can not be interpreted differently, the 1st Amendment is A.O.K. to shit all over.

Welcome to Trump's America.

And there's another campaign promise gone to waste. What's the next one?
