So, not for nothing, but in my home country of Brazil, we get results for every single district, including the most remote place in the Amazon, not more than 2 hours after polls close. This is atrocious!

At least we new early that we elected that clown Bolsonaro and skipped the 7 stages of grief as results were coming in.

Exhausting.



Maybe some of you guys should join us. We’ll offer better maple syrup and bagels in exchange for Trader Joe’s.


I’ll take your government any day of the week.

But I like our actual piece of land a lot.

PBS actually has sane, reasonable people talking intelligently and rationally about things, in case anyone else is interested in something that will lower their blood pressure.

This guy on Fox doing the map is awful. Completely ignoring the fact that MI hasn't counted early votes or that Milwaukee County has barely reported results.

This captures it.

I stopped drinking wine tonight because of the heartburn.

Half this country wants another Hitler.

There’s no healing, no moving forward with politics as usual. Biden can’t bring this country together.

Only splitting it up can move it forward. Doing it now before a more sinister and more competent authoritarian figure takes over would be best

But that’s just delusion on my part. We’re going to keep going in this cycle.

Also, 94k covid cases today. We’ll probably break 110 by end of week.

Fox News is happy to call everything early - I respect that. Texas to the GOP.

Good news is Trump is old as fuck and is an enigma. Trumpism might die but to repeat what he has done is damn hard.

You have probably the most stunningly diverse landscape of any country. It’s my goal to make it through all the national parks in my lifetime. Just stunning.

But dear God it’s a massive problem that such a massive % of the population supports outright cruelty. How do you have a functioning, cohesive country this way?

Ralston on msnbc right now. Saying that there was very low Election Day votes. Still sounds confident. Says first numbers released will be heavy Trump rural votes.

It’s so hard to read western states by county when in fact we need to read them by precinct to make sense of what’s going on.

It doesn't, but it makes Trump's path so difficult. Plus the polling in MI/WI was much more robust than in PA, which takes him to 269.
