    Let’s call it for what it is: Trump isn’t conceding so he can continue to fundraise to pay off the $421 million of debt coming due. He’ll run the con for as long as he can get away with it.

  2. A smarter fascist would still have control be warned America

    • Fascists get dumber as time goes on. It’s an untenable strategy.

    • @Tony Lupone Yes, now think about the base.

    • @Helical Wave you should see the stats on what Trump supporters believe.

    • @Tony Lupone Rugged, noisy machines pave the roads to build highways on which the limos will travel. I think the man meant the pattern is intimidating. I just hope that the steam rollers will never be replaced by luxurious limos but the genie is set out of the bottle and discord is sawn. I sincerely hope you’ll grasp what i mean!

    • Democracy was SAVED at the 11th hour. Most won’t realize how close we came to having a full-blown dictatorship with the orange cult’s militia marching in our streets.

  3. We voted in numbers to big to manipulate

  4. Trump is like those Televangelists. Giving false hopes and take their money.

    *—If you could reason with a Trump supporter, they wouldn’t be Trump supporters—*

    • My thoughts are, kind of, for four years, we’ve had no president in office to receive the daily briefings. What are seventeen, days going to do? I know, a lot can happen in seventeen days, God’s Grace, we’ve made it this far.

      Sooooooo true

    • *TIME TO END SYSTEMIC RACISM NOW!*

      *”Everything looks bad if you remember it”* *………… Donald Trump*

      *This was his reply while trying to defend why he gave*
      *a eulogy for a KKK Grand Cyclops 9 years ago*

      *https://youtu.be/qcBQYApjSa4* *<-----------See the eulogy.* *How much more hatred should blacks have to endure from racists?* *If you truly hate racism then copy and spread* *this comment to every person you can.*

  6. Thanks Chris Hayes, We definitely need to learn the lesson and make sure this can’t happen again! We got lucky this time that our democracy held. You are right, we might not be so lucky next time if we e don’t change things.

    • No…I hate to say this but I do believe it to be true. We got lucky Trump severely mishandled the Corona virus. If he had protected the American people right off the bat he definitely would have won again.

      I dont think anyone but Trump supporters themselves would have believed he would manage to get 74 million votes like he did.

  7. The system worked? That’s like saying my parent’s old car still works because you can get it to run after choking the engine for half an hour.

    • Doesn’t run good, but it does run. I think there should be consequences for all these activities. I don’t know what it is or how you prove things, but it sounds like conspiracy to me.

    • wowhttps://youtu.be/0AcMp9JJ8q0

    • It worked, and the old car has four wheels. The founding fathers never pictured Donald J Trump. It was close, too close for me.

  8. it’s tragic that america nearly failed the test. it’s terrifying that nearly a majority of the people in this country can’t tell the difference between reality and “reality tv”.

    • Not only that but FOX, Rush Limbaugh and the rest are allowed to continue all these years and have really been legitimized by drumph 😔😷

  9. Yes, now we can start the investigations on all the traitorous criminality against the United States of America.

    • @Peter Weintraub The Divided States of America does have a nice ring and more factual.

    • @Alla Zelenchuk
      If he is corrupted, he’d still not be the most corrupted person in the USA. Trump is!!!! Bigly!!

    • That means investigating the entire GOP, FOX, and the orange con man’s entire admin and his crime family.

    • LOL🤣 MORE INVESTIGATIONS🤣 AND AFTER THOSE, INVESTIGATE MELANIA, THEN HIS KIDS, THEN THEIR KIDS

    If ALL “men” are created EQUAL,
    then ALL of “men’s” votes need created EQUAL too.

    The Electoral Vote is truly un-American.

  11. After trump ignominious administration, Democracy MUST be REINFORCED. Never AGAIN trump cult.

    • Racism is a mental health disorder that need to be treated asap!!

    • yeshttps://youtu.be/zFJ2AN_CZH8

    • Agreed. Dems must be willing to curtail their own future powers in the executive branch if American democracy is to survive. We also must hold all public officials to a higher standard and punish lying severely. Public officials should never be allowed to hide behind the first amendment, or else the system fails when facts and fallacies collide. Most especially if official government seals (the White House podium) and buildings (the White House) are clearly behind them or they are in their official functions as government officials (a Secretary of State in an official trip).

    • @JR Dee Yeah, except any law the Democrats make can be reversed or just ignored by Republicans when in power. Democracy can only be strengthened by we the people

  12. Is everyone missing the point, the guard rails should have never been tested the way they were?

    • Jewels vibration | November 24, 2020 at 11:31 PM | Reply

      Absolutely. So close to total disaster. America is now seen as high risk to democracy. Dangerous territory.

    • Racism was tested…72million times🤔🤔🤔

    • Exactly!! The fact that T**** was able to insinuate that he was going to do “anything” to stay in power and all his incompetent, complicit cronies and minions found no issue with what he has said and done is absolutely beyond absurd. The boundaries should NEVER be bent this far.

    • Jwowhttps://youtu.be/0AcMp9JJ8q0

    • The guardrails were sabotaged by slanted news sources. We’re all rejoicing in the triumph of votes, when in fact it was a triumph of viewership. As long as news sources compete for viewership by exploiting differing ideologies rather than practicing responsible journalism, it will only get worse.

  13. We’re NOT out of trouble yet. Congress should be removing Trump from office for cause NOW, before he does anything WORSE.

  14. The “guardrails” haven’t been working four years!

  15. This is one of Chris Hayes best shows. Well researched, argued and presented.

  16. He hasn’t left yet, he is currently President and he can cause havoc and damage as a lame duck.

    Only a couple people stopped this attempted coup.
    The Electoral College is a problem

  18. This election was a warning. The system came fearfully close to buckling.

    • It’s only going to get worse. As long as people can pick and choose their news sources, and those news sources show no restraint in their polarizing deliveries, we will grow more and more divided.

    • @Prickly Pear. Also propaganda and entertainment channels should not act as if they’re news sources. Those espousing and propagating lies and misinformation should be charged with perjury and not let them get away with such, that they’re able to reach millions of viewers with their outright lies!!!

    • @Prickly Pear yeah. The News used to be facts only. Now its controlled by big money. Anything goes.

    • Sir Geoffrey & Sir Blue | November 25, 2020 at 2:20 AM | Reply

      Definitely. These followers who could not distinguish a criminal, racist sociopath from a sane person are what truly scare and concern me.

      He can easily incite and wield them to weaponize the system against those who want to remain democratic. In the Congress, esp. the Senate, the crazy trumpers are still there, including the obstructor Mitch.

    • The centre cannot hold…
      W. B. Yeats saw all this back in the 1900s
      https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/43290/the-second-coming

  19. If we can’t see how close we are to losing democracy, we are doomed.

    • Let’s just hope that complacency over voting is dead!

    • @Sheila Boston
      Unfortunately
      it’s being kept alive by the electoral college

      I voted 🗳 for Biden
      in Florida

      Flora-duh
      Votes all it’s delegates for
      the Nazi Punks

      tRUMP
      iz aN
      Nazi
      and my vote 🗳still didn’t count
      🤔
      🇺🇸

  20. Ironic and fitting that Trump entered his Presidential bids being laughed at, and that’s how he’s going out.
