I get it, she has to do it because Biden is preaching unity to a number of people who are clinging to bullshit and debunked conspiracy theories in order to placate his narcissistic predecessor, but yeah, they are a bunch of fuckers.

And before you start posting a bunch of horseshit links to horseshit weirdo right wing websites, keep in mind, they've brought none of this to light in a fucking court of law. No evidence at all. So basically, all the Trumptard lawyers have done is walked into courtrooms and cried about state laws about how votes are collected, counted, and what not. They've brought not a single fucking shred of evidence of widespread fraud. Which is why they are summarily rejected and laughed out of court.

Fucking losers.

@3:40 Keep telling yourself that. Just keep repeating it over and over, it'll give you comfort. Just like four years ago, when Hillary was sure to win. But come January twentieth, have some booze and sedatives handy.

^^The Dictator will be evicted on January 20.

Tuck Carlson is talking about Dr. Biden's doctorate, while Laura Ingram is telling people to celebrate Christmas with you extended family. If you do that, be sure to say good-bye to your grandparents because you probably won't see them again.

All of Fox (News) is talking about Hunter Biden, because Ivanka Trump broke the law when she visited China.

Republicans watch Fox & believe what they see & hear, while whining about the MSM, which somehow, never seems to include the most Fox (News). Since the election, CNN has surpassed Fox in the ratings.

4:02 - LOL. Can I have some of what you smoke, you delusional fuck. You know Trump is just milking dumb dumbs like you to pad his little legal fund/campaign fund to the tune of $200M+ so far. You're an easy fucking mark, moron.

The only drinking I will be doing on 1/20 will be celebratory. Loser.

Sorry, Tony, I should have looked more closely.

Naming a Native American to be Secretary of the Interior will ensure that Native Land rights are respected.

As SCOTUS recently noted, Treaties are laws, & even ones made to Native Americans will be enforced until Congress says otherwise, with appropriate legislation.

You're back with the usual semicoherent rant. The funny part this time is that you actually prove the point of the controversy. ;)

Once again, useless and destructive fearmongering.

If you had functional brain cells, you'd know that CNN and Fox ratings are both in the toilet.

And you just never get any better at it, which is also sort of funny. ;)
