Sunday Morning Political Briefs: This Is Who They Are

Good morning. It’s 19 days since the election. It’s 15 days since all the major media outlets decared that Joe Biden had won the election. I believe that the record of Trump’s legal team is now 2-32, including a loss last night in Pennsylvania in which a longtime Republican judged wrote, “It is not in the power of this Court to violate the Constitution.” He added that, “In the United States of America, [Trump’s weak allegations] cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state. Our people, laws, and institutions demand more.”

Pennsylvania’s Republican Senator Pat Toomey also called upon Donald Trump to concede. “President Trump should accept the outcome of the election and facilitate the presidential transition process,” he wrote yesterday. “Joe Biden won the 2020 election and will become the 46th President of the United States. I congratulate President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their victory.”

Even Chris Christie — who is the king of embarrassing himself — is telling Trump to stop embarrassing himself.

Trump and the Republicans, however, have moved on to a new conspiracy theory concerning Dominion, the ballot machines used in some of these states.

Sidney Powell, that lunatic woman on Donald Trump’s legal team, is asserting not only did Dominion alter the results in Georgia, where the Democrats paid Governor Kemp to keep quiet, but that Bernie Sanders also beat Hillary Clinton in 2016, but that the Democrats paid Bernie to keep quiet (there’s not enough money in the world to keep Bernie quiet).

You’ll never guess who the guy behind many of these Dominion conspiracy theories is? Ron Watkins, the 8Chan owner behind QAnon. Unbelievable. This guy:


Elsewhere that asshole Chuck Todd is calling Joe Biden the maybe, sort of kind of “apparent” winner, because he — like too many in the media — have gobbled up right-wing talking points.

Meanwhile, some jackass on MSNBC is suggesting that Joe Biden should pardon Donald Trump

No. Actually, Biden’s incoming Chief of Staff is exactly right: Biden shouldn’t do shit. He’s AG should independently make decisions regarding Trump’s criminal fate.

Finally, because 2020 just doesn’t stop, Kyle Rittenhouse was able to raise $2 million to pay his bail with the help of … Silver Spoons star Ricky Schroder. Bateman, come get your boy.

I’m trying not to lose my cool about this on an otherwise lovely Sunday morning, but this is who they are, y’all. This is who they are.
