Weird how Homeland Security said that this election was very secure and no evidence of significant fraud was seen.


But you read a Newsmax story.
Please quote us the part that speaks of internal tampering. I'm pretty sure they are speaking of cyber attacks by the Chinese, Russians, etc.

Belief that Trump really won and was cheated out of his rightful victory is consistent with the many other farcical positions taken by the Trump supporting Right, be it global warming, COVD, masks, trickle down economics, you name it, perhaps even flat earth idiot-ology. They buy the most incredibly ridiculous things.
Well, in fairness, this is coming from a guy who thinks NASA scientists don’t really believe the stuff on NASA websites.

Trump lost because the media didn't treat him fairly, and people are too easily swayed by the media.

If all was fair with how the media treated all candidates, he would have won.

Poor widdle Trump, victimized by all of reality.

Sure, reality could have conspired to victimize Reagan, or Clinton, or Bush, or Obama. Reality could even have victimized George Washington. But reality didn't. Mean old reality only conspired to victimize Trump. Reality is such a meanypoo liberalface.

Poor widdle Trump.

:rolleyes:




(And to think Trumpists spent four years posting "**** your feelings" and calling liberals "snowflakes", then they have the most epic public meltdowns of all. That one lady screaming at the sky was nothing. Just listen to these people...

Christ.)





tl;dr. STOP WHINING. TRUMP LOST BECAUSE TRUMP SUCKS.

If ALL media was fair Trump never would have won in 2016.

IMO, the media gave the rascal for more credit than he deserved, especially the ever-popular Right Wing media that dominates AM radio and cable news. Crying about the media is lame and a clear refusal to acknowledge the reality of that landscape in this day and age. It's not like people read only the Washington Post and New York times anymore.

Of course, smart people do not tune in to Ben Shapiro, Rush Limbaugh and anything owned by Sinclair broadcasting and Rupert Murdoch. That's why Trump lost. Smart people voted against him--eighty million of them.

I disagree in part, Mr Person. The majority left-leaning media was unfair to Donald Trump from the beginning. The media by and large acted like a rake placed in front of him, and he stepped on it, and it smacked him in the face harshly bruising him. However, instead of stepping back and reconsidering his approach and perhaps stepping around the rake, he spent the last four years jumping up and down on the rake in anger and frustration, because that is what he thought played well with his base.

Well, I listen to Ben Shapiro, so I must not be that intelligent but you are not giving him much credit: if you listened to him you would know that he is far more critical of Donald Trump than you care to admit. And unless you genuinely believe CNN, ABC, CBS and MSNBC are part of the "right wing" media, cable is dominated by left-leaning stations. Further, while right-wing groups dominate AM Radio stations, the podcast space has several widely-received left-leaning outlets such as Pod Save America, Vox Media, and the like.

Yes, he did hurt himself in that regard.

Could you imaging though if the media was as negative about Biden as they were Trump?

Can you imagine if Biden did the same stuff as Trump has? Grifting, nepotism, absolute incompetence?

Thinking the degree of nepotism and corruption is equal between Biden and Trump is just bananas. Laughable, Rejected.

So true.

President Trump did practice nepotism. It id normal to put people in key positions that you can trust.

Biden on the other hand illegally helped his son with foreign dignitaries.

It is apples and oranges.

Which media, how was he treated unfairly, give some irrefutable examples with details and how he should have been treated.

Thanks in advance.

I truly do look forward to seeing your work.

Arizona and Wisconsin results have been certified.

Flop Sweat "Tucking it in" Rudy was in a Phoenix hotel today with a cadre of Trump liars and Trump lawyers for Trump's lies, meeting with (it was not a hearing) idiot state Republican legislature members, pleading the same old BS election fraud and corruption claptrap, all while the election win for Joe Biden was being OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED mere blocks away.

It is so delicious!

We had video, we had taped interviews of him admitting to lying (See: Bob Woodward), we had verbatim quotes from interviews, we had his personal Tweets, we had him on a bus describing the ease of grabbing ******s, we have entire lists of proven lies. We have video of him in Erie, PA telling the people gathered to see him, standing in the cold, that he wouldnt have bothered coming there for any reason, if he didnt have to for re-election.

None of this was faked by the media.

The man is sub-human garbage.
