To help avoid the troubles of a lawful insurrection, please remember that the election results won’t be fully tabulated until several days after November 3rd.
To any presidential candidate that casts adamant derision on the election process, recall that he’s a lying shitbag. He lied about his VERY FIRST MOMENT as president. And will lie until the day he is out of office and beyond. Recall his words “This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration — period.” How did we get to this horrible place?
Here is Trump casting adamant derision on the electoral process: “I think it’s a terrible thing when states are allowed to tabulate ballots for a long period of time after the election is over…” (and)
I made a transcript. Highlights are mine.
I think it’s a terrible thing when ballots can be collected after an election. I think it’s a terrible thing when states are allowed to tabulate ballots for a long period of time after the election is over.
But it can only lead to one thing and it’s very bad. You know what that thing is. I think it’s a very dangerous thing. And I think it’s terrible that we can’t know the results of an election the night of the election in a modern day of computers. I think it’s a terrible thing. And I happen to think it was a terrible decision for our country made by the supreme court. I think it was a terrible decision for our country. And I think it’s a very dangerous decision. Because you’re going to have one or two or three states depending on how it ends up where they’re tabulating ballots and the rest of the world is waiting to find out. And I think there’s great danger to it and I think a lot of fraud and misuse can take place. I think it’s a terrible decision by the Supreme Court. A terrible decision.
Now I don’t know if that’s going to be changed because we’re going to go in the night of, as soon as that election is over, we’re going in with our lawyers.
But we don’t want to have Pennsylvania where you have a political governor, a very partisan guy, and we don’t want to have other states like Nevada where you have the head of the Democratic clubhouse as your governor. We don’t want to be in the position where he’s allowed to, every day watch ballots come in. See if we could only find 10,000 more ballots. Because we’re doing great in Nevada. We’re doing great in Arizona. We’re doing great all over. But if you take Nevada or you take Pennsylvania, and everyone knows what happened in Philadelphia, you don’t have to say it. And I’ve read about it for years. And I don’t think it’s fair that we have to wait a long period of time after the election. If people wanted to get their ballots in, they should have gotten their ballots in long before that, a long time. They don’t have to put their ballots in the day. They could have put their ballots in a month ago. I would think it’s a ridiculous decision.
Here’s what I’m sadly thinking is a possibility:
– Nov 3, 9pm EST Trump declares himself the winner before results are tabulated
– Nov 15 Results are in with Biden the winner but Trump contests it. Trump claims fraud and won’t back down: much gnashing of teeth and lawsuits
– Jan 18 Claiming fraud and a growing base of support, Trump [something something that keeps him as president after Jan 20]
– Feb 10 With factions formed, things get out of hand and talk of a lawful insurrection begins
