76 Comments on "Georgetown Law Professor: The Trump Effort To Undermine The Election Is ‘Almost Certainly Doomed’"

  1. The 25th amendment

    • @Elwood Blues you think we’re out of Afghanistan? Oh, how cute you are.

    • @Scott Parramore You obviously don’t know how to use Google moron.

    • @Cleaster Britt Are you too imbecilic to actually read my comment?

    • @Lore Bay It is entirely correct. You might not like it, but that doesn’t make it untrue.

    • @Kelly Cox 5,000 now. ‘On 17 February 2009, Barack Obama ordered 17,000 more US troops be sent to Afghanistan to bolster security in the country and thereby boosted the 36,000 US troops already there by 50%.[11][12][13] “This increase is necessary to stabilize a deteriorating situation in Afghanistan, which has not received the strategic attention, direction and resources it urgently requires,” Obama said in a written statement.’ Wiki. says there are plans to have zero by the end of 2021.

  2. Always leave your enemy with at least one path to escape .

    • @SuprG X I think what Max is implying is that by allowing a retreat you avoid a battle that could be a ‘blood bath’.

      My Max_ I disagree… If you let your stanky enemy go, then when he is stronger he will rise back up with twice the force as the first time. Listen, would your enemy let you go? Fock NO!🇺🇸🦅🇺🇸

      @EarthWindFire Water you mister elements are the problem. Screaming militant dogma about someone who has a political difference with you. If you can’t weather dissent in your daily discourse you will forever be attempting to gaslight everyone around you because you haven’t learned how to properly defend your beliefs through words and arguments. Instead you rely on leftist extremism and regurgitate the same old party line. You sir/ma’am are by definition, not American, but you can be one. Start now by fleshing out your beliefs, not a party’s, and be just as willing to listen to other’s opinions as you voice your own. This is true empowerment, not some half-baked militant obtained power, but actual freedom. Sincerely, an independent thinker.

    • wow

      @Michael Higdon Hi, that’s an extreme judgement, because I wasn’t talking about parties or the presidency, but in real wars. I must have misunderstood 🤣… I’m so focking embarrassed. SO MICHEAL YOU ARE WRONG! CALM THE FOCK DOWN…I was speaking of courage and honor_ but I can see how this looks… You are wrong because not talking about Republicans or Democrats!

  3. If America could see what America is doing, Americawould send the troops to America to save America from America

    This is why you don’t give a country for a spoiled rich kid to play with

    The founders never conceived that a mentally ill president would be hoisted on the shoulders of a crooked senate.

    • @deborah b Trump has undermined the branches of govt. Also has undermined the 4th estate the press. Freedom of the press is necessary in a democracy. Demonized senate house fbi courts election process and fake news. Except for fox u kno.

    • @Susan Dwyer thanks Susan, for correction

    • And add to that David, who would have thought Trump would receive 70 million votes.
      Kiwi for Biden

    • @Beth Keller I just hope that someday I can get that god-awful orange colored face of his out of my mind!

  6. Trump doesn’t care about the national interest… haven’t you figured that out over the last 4 years?

  7. I’m not fond of the words “almost certainly”. I prefer ” it is doomed” or “Concede”!

  8. We all knew this was excatly what was going happen he is a cry baby who flips game boards right before he is about to loose

  9. Remember that all through history, there have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they seem invincible. But in the end, they always fall. Always.
    Mahatma Gandhi

    • A “No” uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a “Yes” merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble. MAHATMA GHANDI for the USA Republicans the most cowards cronies on Earth greetings from Belgium 💙

    • How long tho…1 lifetime..your Children’s..your grandchildren’s lifetimes…

  10. Inciting INSURRECTION is a treasonable offense.

  11. Sédition, treason from a president and a party.
    Indictment for all.

  12. “Reckless and spiteful” are two strong personal characteristics of human being Donald J Trump.

  13. Thank you. That was informative. But did they do a scenario where the REPUBLICANS refuse to accept the outcome of the election?

  14. this man has never cared for any one other than himself and this just reminds us of this. people with any brains know this except for Trumpers who are morons they were 4 years ago and again this election. thank God this time enough knew it and voted against him

  15. Did you have in your game’s if Trump attempted a coup.

  16. Trump: if I don’t win I’m going to blow up the gameboard and then we both lose

    70million Americans: I can get behind that

    Me:🤦🏽‍♂️ wtf is wrong with y’all? 😑

    “The manipulations of the Defence Department by Trump, including the appointment of right wing cronies to very senior positions, smacks of a plan to try to use the military to hold on to power.” “It is possible though that he may start a war with another nation and claim that a transition of power should not occur while the country is at war. For that he will need Defense Department action. He is conceivably lining that up.” comments from out there

  18. This is the United States of America, the new President takes office period no exceptions I’m sorry Trump lost but Jan. 20th it’s over.

  19. There’s probably A LOT of shredding going on there!

  20. WH needs to be cleaned thoroughly before transition due to pandemic..
