I have laughed at those Melania body double theories. But I just saw the video of them returning to the WH, and that did not look like her.

Reportedly Trump was very unhappy with her renovations at Mar A Lago. White marble and dark wood offended his sensibilities.

Welcome back stranger. Happy New Year. Hope your new neighbor who moves in on the 20th doesn't lower property values as much as the guy who's house he is taking over.

Right now I'll settle for actually being able to go to the office every day.

18 more days....


Mark Meadows, President Donald Trump's chief of staff, was ultimately the one who convinced the president to forgo a nationwide mask mandate to help fight the coronavirus pandemic, The New York Times reported on Thursday.

According to the report, President Trump's main pollster, Tony Fabrizio, came to the Oval Office in the middle of the summer for a meeting with Trump and his advisors. Fabrizio reported some surprising news: A majority of voters – including likely Trump supporters – supported mandatory mask-wearing in public.

Fabrizio's poll had found that, in July, nearly 70% of voters in states being targeted by Trump's campaign were in favor of a mask mandate, including more than half of Republicans. The polling data supported an argument made by senior advisors Jared Kushner and Hope Hicks: Trump could portray mask-wearing as Americans' key to regaining their freedom to attend group gatherings and indoor events.

But Meadows disagreed. During the same meeting, he argued the politics of such a move would damage the President's reputation with his most ardent supporters.


"The base will revolt," Meadows said, according to The Times.

Several of Trump's other advisors shared this viewpoint, including White House senior advisor Stephen Miller. Meadows added that he wasn't sure such a move would be legal, either.

For Trump, Meadows' words ended up outweighing the wishes of Kushner and Hicks, and of Fabrizio's polling data.

"I'm not doing a mask mandate," he reportedly said.


After that, Trump was rarely seen in public wearing a mask, except for after he contracted COVID-19 himself in early October.

In addition to Meadows' involvement in discouraging a mask mandate, the New York Times report also detailed how Trump lashed out at Kushner for what he saw as too much testing for COVID-19.

Kushner helped oversee nationwide testing efforts throughout the year.

According to The Times, during another Oval Office meeting of top aides on August 19, Trump grew angry with increases in COVID-19 testing in the US, which he blamed for higher case numbers.


"You're killing me! This whole thing is! We've got all the damn cases," Trump reportedly yelled at Kushner.

"I want to do what Mexico does," Trump continued. "They don't give you a test till you get to the emergency room and you're vomiting."

Trump also criticized Kushner about testing during debate preparation, according to the report.

"I'm going to lose," Trump said, according to The Times. "And it's going to be your fault, because of the testing."

More GOP senators will reject the EC as some stupid publicity stunt to help their 2024 (or 2022) chances.

They are literally destroying what this country was founded upon.

A performance coup is still a damn coup. You shouldn’t trash the system for a personal gain.

There was no widespread fraud. Whatever was presented to the courts was rejected. Not because of some deep state bullshit, but due to the claims being bullshit.

So from now on every election won by a democrat will be invalid cause fraud.

Said this before but we are literally one election away from losing the republic / democracy we cherish.

It’s safe to say that if the GOP ran both chambers of congress that the election results would be thrown out. It’s so important these people are removed from office, and never be allowed back in.

I wonder what promises Trump has made to Teddy. Emergency commission lol



U.S. Senator Ted Cruz has said he will be among a dozen Republican senators who will challenge President-elect Joe Biden's victory when Electoral College results are tallied in Congress next week.

In a statement on Saturday with 10 other GOP senators, Cruz demanded the appointment of an emergency commission to conduct a 10-day audit of the election returns in 'disputed states'.

Until such a commission is appointed, they vowed to intend to vote on January 6 to reject the electors from those states - a largely symbolic move that has little chance of preventing Biden from taking office.

The effort is considered separate from but parallel to that of Republican Senator Josh Hawley, who earlier this week became the first sitting member of the Senate to announce he would challenge the election result.

Trump is dangling his 2024 support. It’s obvious the GOP in its current state can’t win without Trump.

I think we’re seeing the fracture — the Romney wing vs the Trump wing. The 2024 nominee will have to contend with both.

I really wish he could face some sort of charges for this.

President Trump urged fellow Republican Brad Raffensperger, the Georgia secretary of state, to “find” enough votes to overturn his defeat in an extraordinary one-hour phone call Saturday that election experts said raised legal questions.

The Washington Post obtained a recording of the conversation in which Trump alternately berated Raffensperger, tried to flatter him, begged him to act and threatened him with vague criminal consequences if the secretary of state refused to pursue his false claims, at one point warning that Raffensperger was taking “a big risk.”

Throughout the call, Raffensperger and his office’s general counsel rejected Trump’s assertions, explaining that the president is relying on debunked conspiracy theories and that President-elect Joe Biden’s 11,779-vote victory in Georgia was fair and accurate

“The people of Georgia are angry, the people in the country are angry,” he said. “And there’s nothing wrong with saying, you know, um, that you’ve recalculated.”

Raffensperger responded: “Well, Mr. President, the challenge that you have is, the data you have is wrong.”


At another point, Trump said: “So look. All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state.”

"There’s no way I lost Georgia,” Trump said, a phrase he repeated again and again on the call. “There’s no way. We won by hundreds of thousands of votes.”

Yeah, he absolutely should.

Hopefully, if we're lucky enough to get complete control of Congress, that'll finally happen at long last. Not just for him, but for every member of the GOP who is going along with and enabling this insanity. I want every last one of them to pay for this. We need to demand that they pay, and we need to do more to ensure this kind of bullshit never, ever happens again.

God, imagine where we'd be right now as a country if Trump and his GOP cult had put even half the amount of time into fighting the pandemic as they have trying to overturn the results of this election.

The number of cases and deaths of the China Virus is far exaggerated in the United States because of@CDCgov's ridiculous method of determination compared to other countries, many of whom report, purposely, very inaccurately and low. “When in doubt, call it Covid.” Fake News!

Seriously, let's recap:

-He got impeached over that whole thing with Ukraine where he wanted them to "do him a favor" in regards to digging up dirt on Biden before the 2020 election.
-He and the GOP actively worked to try and fuck with mail-in voting this year, by putting in DeJoy and trying to dispose of drop boxes and dissuading people from voting by mail and things of that sort.
-Now we have this tape of him trying to get the Georgia secretary of state to overturn the election in his favor, and he's been actively trying to mess with the runoff Senate races, too.

And that's all been within the past year.

But sure, it's totally unbelievable that he would've benefitted from Russian interference in the 2016 election, and there was TOTALLY no criminal actions on his or his campaign's part to work that one in his favor. All those people tied to the Russia investigation that he pardoned were totally innocent, because as we all know, pardons only ever go out to people who didn't do anything wrong, right?

Jesus Christ, how many more fucking times does he have to screw with an election before people finally wake up and realize just how corrupt he is? At this point, why wait until the 20th? Just kick his corrupt ass out now and be done with him. And then hold every single one of the GOP members who've enabled and gone along with his lunacy accountable, too.

But hey, I'm sure he'll learn a lesson from all of this, right, Senator Collins?

The complete recording of that phone call is absolutely outrageous and a blatant abuse of power. Any Republican who goes through with the charade in the House and Senate after that phone call has no business being in office. You'd think all that Trump did was wear a tan suit, by their "standards".

Here's some more disgrace

(CNN)Before he leaves office, President Donald Trump will award the nation's highest civilian honor to two of his most vocal political allies who defended him throughout his impeachment, Rep. Devin Nunes of California and Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, as the White House has been inundated with requests for others, multiple sources told CNN.

Though it wasn't listed on his public schedule released by the White House, Trump on Monday will award the Medal of Freedom to Nunes, the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee who is a close political ally of Trump's and who has worked closely with him to undermine the Justice Department's Russia investigation.
