Before I get into why, I must address Republicans…
Q: Why do you cheat all the time?
You cheated Obama out of his Supreme Court nominee, claiming if another vacancy came up during an election year, you’d wait until “after” the election to appoint a new Justice!
In 2016, many believed Trump “stole” the election from Hillary Clinton, especially since she received 3.5 million more popular votes than you, but she conceded, knowing her Electoral Vote numbers would never catch up to You.
It seems Republicans have no problem accepting their Senatorial re-election wins across the board, especially Mitch McConnell and Lindsay Graham, but somehow continue to reject the Presidential Loss as factual?
McConnell actually said, “Trump is 100% within his right to challenge the vote!” Can you imagine if Hillary Clinton did this?
The current Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo literally said, “There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump Administration.” With Pompeo, clearly in denial, stated, “Every vote will count and Trump will Win. There will be a [swearing-in] of Trump on January 20, 2021 to a second term.”
I wonder if Pompeo is defending Trump, or more upset at the fact that he’s about to lose his job as Secretary of State!
Meanwhile, Britain, Canada, France, Germany and Turkey, have all called to congratulate Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States, while Russia and China still haven’t accepted the president-elect. Is it possible that “they” would want to help Trump cheat somehow by offering some assistance — Which would undermine our process, and, destroy our democracy!
Like Trump said, “If (I) say they cheated, that makes it So!”
Meanwhile, A.G. Bill Barr is entertaining Trump on the basis of voter fraud by sending a memo to federal officials that they can investigate and examine specific allegations of voter irregularities before State results of the presidency are certified. At which point, Richard Pilger, who served as Director of the Election Crimes Branch in the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Section, resigned from his post after receiving (instructions) about “the new policy and its ramifications…” [Side Note: Are we, as a Nation really willing to sacrifice our veracity to try to overturn an election just because we don’t like who won]?
Prior Justice Department policy was designed to avoid interposing the Federal Government into our elections. But this is Not the 2000 Election!
Dude, You Lost!
In November 2016, I didn’t want to accept the fact that you won. I didn’t vote for anybody. I gave away my right to vote because I didn’t care for you, and I didn’t care for Hillary, even though I knew she was more qualified. Maybe I let my friends convince me she had a hand in that unground pizza child-sex ring, or some of the other nonsensical subjects spewing across the Internet to sway my decision to stay home. I regretted my decision ever since.
Hillary lost because she took her candidacy for granted. She didn’t fight in those “battleground” states like you did. She assumed that Americans couldn’t possibly vote for someone with NO political experience. Clearly, she was wrong!
We also thought You stole the election back then. Democrats even conducted an investigation that Russia was somehow involved by using techno (Tweet-Bots), which somehow helped persuade the hearts and minds of Americans with what we now call “Fake News.”
Your message of being a non-politician resonated with us. Even the nay-sayers said, “Give Trump a Chance,” so I too, had to accept the fact that you won the Electoral Vote, and that you are now, the President of these United States, as you claimed you would put the campaign trail rhetoric behind us.
Little did we know, you are the exact same person you appeared to be at your rallies, with the same persona you used to win the 2016 Election.
You said you would “Drain the Swamp!” Instead, you filled it with all your billionaire buddies with zero (0) experience.
You said, you would “Fix” Obamacare because it was a disaster. Instead, we saw our premiums rise.
You said, Obama spends soooo much time golfing, that, if elected, you’ll work for us. Instead, you’ve spent each-and-every-single-weekend golfing on the taxpayers dime, treating the office of the presidency as a regular 9-to-5 job — with the exception of the pandemic, because the country was shut-down.
You pulled us out of the “Paris Climate Accord” because it was something Obama accomplished. You rolled back each and every Regulation Obama came up with, just to reverse policies with his name attached to them: Clean air, clean water, protecting national forests, protecting the environment, illegal dumping, polluting our oceans, rivers, and streams, all stricken from the record as if they never existed.
Then there’s racial strife in Charlottesville, VA. There were good people on “both sides.” Yet, you refused to denounce White Supremacy, while simultaneously saying, “You’re the least racist person in the world, and, you’ve done (more) for Black people than any president in history, with the exception of Lincoln.” Do you realize how “Racist” that sounds?
Oh, so Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves, (on paper), yet we still experience Racial Tyranny on a daily basis for why “Black Lives Matter.” Especially in the wake of George Floyd, who was murdered in broad daylight, not by bullet, but by kneeling on his Neck. A modern-day lynching without the rope, but just as effective as a choke-hold.
Yet, you didn’t offer any words of calm to the civil unrest that followed. Instead, you became the President of “Law-and-Order,” while condemning ANTIFA — The anti-fascist paradigm that became an idea, not an organization like the “Proud Boys” or the KKK, but synonymous with the “Radical-Left!”
So, what was the purpose of tear-gassing peaceful protesters just to clear a path to a church you don’t attend, just to hold up a Bible you don’t read? And, what did you mean when you said, “They are going to invade your suburbs?” Who’s They?
And that couple who pointed guns at peaceful protesters, I guess because the path they chose came too close to their home; were invited guest speakers at your Republican National Convention, reiterating the (invasion) of the suburbs, and how (their) property values will plummet if the Democrats are elected to implement their plans for the homeless.
Did it ever occur to You that the same people that voted for you in 2016, became disgusted with the Hate and Division you sowed into the fabric of our Nation?
But, the worst sin of all is COVID-19, or Coronavirus. Given its name because it was discovered in 2019, and touted to be more deadly, and more devastating, than any strain of the Flu we’ve ever experienced before.
You were briefed about in January 2020; that the threat of an airborne virus was imminent, but you chose to ignore it, believing, ‘If I just ignore it, it’ll go away!’
But it didn’t disappear by Easter. And it didn’t disappear by summer. The heat didn’t kill it, and we opened up our Nation far too soon just to protect the economy. What good is a stock-market when people are dying? Instead of mandating masks, you made them “optional,” which led to even more political conflict in an already racially-divided nation.
Just put a “spin” on it, your insiders said. That way, it’ll appear you’re winning!
You announce to the world that, “We are winning the war on this virus; we have rounded the curve and controlled the virus…” In reality: we haven’t rounded anything.
In the beginning we went from, “Anyone who wants a test can get a test; we have lovely tests,” to “Slow the testing down… If they keep testing, they’re going to find more infections…”
At a recent Trump rally, You chanted, “Covid, Covid, Covid! I’m Covid-Out! Aren’t you tired of hearing about Covid? I know I am!”
The worst part is, after your own recovery from being infected with Covid19, the first thing you said to the world, “Don’t let Covid dominate your life,” which was the worse thing you could’ve said about this deadly virus by pretending it’s harmless!
You sir, will receive the best medical care money can buy so You won’t ever die from it. As for the rest of us…
In the last month, there have been more infections and more death in the United States than any other nation on earth. How can the richest country on the planet, botch any plan-of-action to combat this disease?
You told each State Governor to “handle it” leaving them to scramble for their own PPE. Then, you claimed that Obama left the PPE cupboards bare. If so, you had 3½ years to replenish those supplies, but you tossed the 69-page pandemic playbook instead. And let’s not forget You take “No Responsibility” for your handling of Coronavirus, blaming China and the individual states for their mis-steps, but you still refuse to mandate masks…
Fast-forward to the weeks leading up to the Election, as you held a rally every-day, sometimes three in one day, Not caring if people in the crowd wore masks, but you had them sign a waiver holding the Trump Organization harmless if they caught COVID19 — Not to mention those CraigsList Ads that sought “actors” to participate and get “paid” for attending!
Infections begin to spike… In the two weeks before Election Day, we’re seeing upwards of a 1,000+ deaths per day, and seven-straight-days of 100,000+ positive cases, with 130K new cases in the last 24-hours, with a total of 10-million+ infections nationwide.
This is what happens when you “Downplay” a deadly virus and tell people Not to worry!
Nationwide, we have surpassed 65,000 in-patient Covid19 hospitalizations in one week! The last time this figure was this high was the month of April, 2020.

Trump visits Erie, PA and actually told the crowd, “I didn’t want to come to Erie, I wasn’t going to come here, but I had to…” Once again asking suburban women to ‘please like (me) again.’
Erie County, votes for Biden!
Eventually, the state of Pennsylvania is won by Biden, putting him over 270! Those 20 PA Electoral Votes gave Biden 273, while Trump stood still at 214. Trump demands a recount and cites, “Voter Fraud!”
Trump also won the state of Texas, but in El Paso, the death-toll is unnerving. El Paso, TX also voted Biden, despite Donald Trump winning the State Electorate.
The difference between this election and 2016 is, we had to wait five (5) to garner results. If you look at the number of votes cast in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin alone, Biden has three-times (3x) the margin of victory Trump had in 2016.
It wasn’t fraud in 2016, so why is it fraudulent now?
Biden literally has (5) five-million more votes than Trump in the popular vote! As of November 11, 2020, Joe Biden now has 290 Electoral Votes!
Even if Trump were to somehow magically reverse Pennsylvania’s (20) tally, and received the other 34 outstanding Electoral Votes from Alaska (3), Georgia (16) and North Carolina (15), Trump still wouldn’t have enough votes to catch up to Biden’s 270.
The writings on the wall, Mr. President.
You need to concede! The World is waiting…
When Hillary Clinton conceded in 2016, her votes were approximately where yours are now, and she knew she’d lost before you reached 270. Even then, people didn’t vote for you as much as they voted “against” her!
Today, the vote is the opposite. People didn’t vote “for” Biden as much as they voted “against” your handling of Coronavirus, and the third-wave we’re facing Now!
Unfortunately, you are that pretentious, irascible, misogynistic, xenophobic, petulant person everyone accused you of being.
Every president-elect, and every challenger, at least during the last 100 years, has respected the constitutional process and the transfer of power — Until now!
But if you Don’t concede, you will go down in history as a Sore Loser!
