using a rally to spread allegations of misconduct 

In Trump and his fellow Republicans ongoing efforts to attack voting and elections.

And to further spread Covid45. I don't see a lot of people wearing masks nor practicing social distancing in the picture above.

What country is this again?

Pure lunacy.

“Your people are refusing to do what you ask,” he complained in a tweet, as if speaking with Kemp.

Same old Trump. He wants to cram his way of thinking into people's heads. He wants robots to obey his every whim, and then when an independent thinker comes out who doesn't think the way he does, he goes to his repertoire of insulting and being mean to that person.

The voting system is corrupt so go and vote

What a fool.

I'm guessing though it's too sophisticated for him or his minions to understand the irony of his message.

Rex was right! Trump is a moron (in addition to being a narcissistic sociopath).

If his baseless conspiracy theories cause these 2 idiot GOP Senators (one traded pharma stocks after secret briefings, the other makes excuses for Qanon whack jobs) it will be the first good thing he’s done in office, albeit accidentally. Trump

I mean, he’s not even trying to hide it anymore. “Give me the election I lost.”

The latest futile attempt to subvert the presidential election results continued Trump's unprecedented campaign to undermine confidence in the democratic process, but overshadowed his stated purpose in traveling to Georgia — boosting Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.

As usual, Trump made it all about him. He made himself the center of attention, while pushing Perdue and Loeffler to the side. Then again, those two deserve what they get for hitching their wagons to this lunatic. I can see Trump continuously spouting fraud way into his retirement, as if he were in an asylum.

This presents the dilemma that Trump supporters in Georgia face; do they vote for Perdue and Loeffler, knowing full well they "failed" Trump, or do they just boycott the elections, and simply hand the result to Warnock and Ossoff?

“Let them steal Georgia again, you’ll never be able to look yourself in the mirror,” Trump told rallygoers.

Steal?

Giuliani: "This is not a fraud case"...

Trump's Attorney in Pennsylvania: "There is no evidence of any fraud"...

Trump's Attorney in Arizona: "We are not alleging fraud or anyone stealing the election"...

Att Gen Barr: "We have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

Hmmmmm......

Trump, though, vented his frustrations with Kemp on Twitter and at the rally. “Your people are refusing to do what you ask,” he complained in a tweet, as if speaking with Kemp. “What are they hiding? At least immediately ask for a Special Session of the Legislature. That you can easily, and immediately, do.” At the rally, he took aim once again at Kemp, saying he could assure him victory “if he knew what the hell he was doing.”

Kemp has been Trump's lapdog - but when he refuses to help Trump shred the Constitution, he is turned on - and ridiculed... Trump loyalty - no wonder he doesn't have a dog...

Trump's false claims have resonated with voters such as Barry Mann, a 61-year-old business owner who came to hear Pence in Savannah. Mann hasn’t decided whether he’ll vote for his senators a second time.

“I think there’s some issues with our election and more investigation needs to be done,” Mann said, adding that he doesn’t think Perdue and Loeffler have done enough to support Trump’s efforts to overturn the results. “I want to see what happens between now and January,” Mann said.

Just stay home Barry - that's what your Cult Leader...er....I mean President wants you to do....

Don't show your support for the steal.....refuse to be manipulated....DON'T VOTE....

President Trump needs to understand that it is time to make way for a new administration. Donald Trump for once must with gracious humility stand down.

“Let them steal Georgia again, you’ll never be able to look yourself in the mirror,”

To be a statesman is to concede this election result.  

The new could eventually produce, or make way for fundamental/complete economic political change.

However, this can only occur if there is a complete conscientious belief in a policy to unite all communities.

Social Justice, will never be achieved though political idealism, in effect pitching one group of society against the other.    

Kamala Harris, US Vice President-elect could well be the focus of this change.

However, Kamala Harris will need to jettison some, if not all the socialist idealism, and embrace a more practical, politically pragmatic policy agenda,

Wasn’t it Spock that stated, “Logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one”. Or something along those lines.

And just when you think Trumpworld can't get any crazier....

Hours after President Trump plugged Jeanine Pirro’s show at a campaign rally on Saturday night, the Fox News host unleashed a rage attack on Attorney General Bill Barr, who has sparked the ire of Trumpworld by coming out against Trump’s “rigged” election claims. “We need answers. We need action. We need justice. And you Mr. Barr are so deep in the swamp, you can’t see beyond your fellow reptiles,” she seethed, after declaring that Barr had “proven himself to be anything other than extraordinary.”

I assume she means it figuratively rather than literally but since Trumpworld already believes Alien reptiles have infiltrated our government you never know....

So, how many other Trump supporters here agree that Barr is a "reptile"?

It would be nice to think that the Republicans would work with her if she did, but I suspect that their actual agenda is to ensure a Democratic administration fails by blocking everything it tries to do, radical or not.

Quite so, but who would ever utter the words "Trump" and "statesman" in the same breath.

Trump's 100-minute rally before thousands of largely maskless supporters

The brainless to trump are like flies to dump.

came not long after he was rebuffed by Georgia’s Republican governor in his astounding call 

There are enough courageous people out there and that gives one hope!!!

Who can trust US voting system any more??? Our nation became a banana republics. From now China will be the richest and strongest nation in the world. Such a sad situation......

As the misanthrope steals money from the fan base to the tune of 200 million US dollars (That’s how much the devotees have given) Nero comes to mind. Once it strikes noon and President Biden comes into office, the orange now -- if not arrested -- will start to run Magaistan from Florida against the elected govt in Washington DC. It needs to be stopped. The very fabric of the Constitution is being torn.

Trump and his no mask rallies is intent on cleaning out the MAGA gene pool. I pity the medical staff in this county. MAGA folks, don't vote, it's rigged anyways, stay home.

Only donations to Trump's Save America PAC above $8,000 goes for the cause, otherwise millions are just going into Trump's pocket.

Of the faces visible in that photo, there are 2 masks...how can otherwise rational people be this dumb?

Mr. soon-to be Former President, this is what you call “winning?” You have done more damage to America than any adversary could have hoped.

So you are saying Trumps Presidency did more damage than our enemies of the state?

No matter how you look at Donald J. Trump. Some may say the worst President of all time.

Some may say a Patriot that loves his country and someone that tried to bring on meaningful and serious change. You either love him or hate him. But to compare his Presidency and his policies over the last four years as more harmful than any other threat to the United States. This goes way to far.

Please show us this great damage you claim he has done. And leave COVID out of it. Not many other counties are doing much better. There are few doing or managing better.

Only donations to Trump's Save America PAC above $8,000 goes for the cause, otherwise millions are just going into Trump's pocket.

This is based on what? Your feeling? Your best educated guess? Here is my theory. The money collected will go to the 2024 Campaign. Or study on how to rig elections through mail in's and or software's.

Seems to be the game now.

I do wonder what it is the cult wants? A President in exile? 2 acting PotUS, at the same time, like the Popes of old, causing all manner of consternation.

He lost. Get over it, as you never tired of telling other people when he "won" in 2016.

There is zero evidence of fraud. It's all projection on his, and his followers, part.

Meanwhile, as his vanity tips, the bodies are mounting.

The Democratic rhetoric here is unbelievable.

The rhetoric by Democrats is an embarrassment to the country.

For any politician seeking to communicate their message successfully, having personal credibility is vital; and as public trust has become an ever-rarer commodity in politics, so Democrats seeking election or advocating policy change have to convey their trustworthiness through the promotion of their positive character.

Why have Democrat's fallen so far from this core belief of theirs?

First, positioned as the party which speaks and stands up for the American ‘middle classes’, the issue of personal wealth is arguably a more vexing issue for Democratic politicians than Republicans, raising as it does the ethos-damaging accusations of hypocrisy and phoniness.

Again. The check and balance of the parties working together is dead.

I have always believed as Americans is to give up our individuality in favor of pure party affiliation … tribalism: the idea that “my team” is flawless and “your team” is evil. It’s delusional. It divides us and eliminates actual discussions with substance.

Democrat's started this. Then turned up the volume on it when Clinton lost on the first outgoing Africa American president. Its time it stopped.

The attacks started the day after President elect Trump started to assume his role as POTUS.

Its all crazy.

Yeah, sure am.

OBL and his fellow travelers United America against a common enemy.

Donald John Trump has turned America on itself. He has destroyed the social fabric to the extent where the old term “my fellow American” just doesn’t mean what it one did. He has, to borrow from ListentotheTruth above, created his own MAGAstan, a nation within the nation that appears to exist to own libs.

@klausdorth

You are right. Its hard to defend these actions and and these rallies.

However, again if fraud has taken place or some deeper sinister fraudulent actions have taken place.

I do not care what party you rep. Something must done about it. And the evidence and videos and affidavits being brought forth can not be denied. As Republican. I am in full agreement Trump should go. I also feel Biden should too if its discovered their was wide spread fraud. Denial at this point is just sweeping it under the rug.

It's not the country. America has been for quite some time a 30/30/40 country.

30% Republican. 30% Democrat. 40% Don't Care.

The same goes for most of our peers.

The problem is the Republican party.

Here's a headline from Brietbart just after election DAY.

Exit Poll: 54 Percent of Biden Voters Cast Vote Against Trump, Not For Biden

-11 ( +2 / -13 )

These fast few days have really shown what an ugly, sick cult Trump-world is....

A cult where dissent is never allowed, the cult leader is infallible, and saints turn to sinners in one second....

Georgia Gov Kemp, who has been a lapdog for Trump, praising his every word and parroting his lies, now becomes the object of ridicule just because he states the obvious that Biden won the state...

Bill Barr, who has been one of Trump's most faithful allies, suddenly gets labeled a "reptile of the swamp" by a Fox News talking head because he made the obvious statement that there's been no evidence of fraud...

But is it really a surprise? Jeff Sessions supported Trump when Lindsey Graham was calling him a "race-baiting religious bigot", and Marco Rubio was calling him a "con-artist". Sessions couldn't have been more of a suck-up...but because he did the right thing and recused himself, he was thrown out of the cult and endured more insults than Nancy, Chuck, and Joe combined...

The cult is now turning on itself...and will end as all cults do....

Simon Foston, a valid point.

However, this will be just one challenge that Kamala Harris will need to rise above, also is to unify the political divide, another of an ever-growing list of tasks and challenges that lie ahead.

Winning the trust and confidence of clearly divided communities will require a completely new innovative political and economic approach.
