  1. Biden 2020

  2. *Make America, America Again*

  3. We are back to being The United States of America again. Thank you world, for putting up with this BS for so long.

    • Welcome back USA. One again you prove you deserve your role in the World (whatever you will call it). Welcome form an ex-sovietic country (Romania) who do not put equal between Putin and Russian people as do not believe Trump= USA. God bless America and all the regular people around the world as well.

    • Legal ballots are now being counted. Stay tuned.

    • @Sam McConnich
      Because of the mass voter fraud, the Supreme Congress will let the legislatures to decide the election:

      *REPUBLICANS* : 30 state legislatures
      Democrats: 19 state legislatures

      Have fun with sleepy Joe while it last.

    • @Truth Seeker there is no mass voter fraud, delusions are not reality
      Take care

  4. Calm and competent just the way to go President Biden ❤️

    • @Truth Seeker Except that ISN’T the ‘truth’ Ser, as he already has the Electoral Votes to give him the office. He didn’t ‘steal’ anything; just got more votes. That you wish to follow your Orange leader down his chosen rabbit hole is your own choice. I hope you’re contributing mightily to hie ‘election; fund, knowing full well that you’re just padding his wallet on the way out the door.

      @Truth Seeker explain how Biden has cheated. Because NOBODY, including FOX news seems to know.

    • @Truth Seeker in Kentucky Republicans bragged about pushing fake ballots for Trump,

    • @Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow
      Have you talked to the litigants and the lawyers in this case? Maybe you should. None of you know anything, you are in denial. More than a hundred page of legal brief was submitted to the court about the grand theft election by corrupt Joe Biden. I have heard part of the legal brief. It details with specificity the fraud that occurred coupled with hundreds of sworn affidavits of individuals who witnessed and videotaped what was going on. Some lawyers are saying that with the wide-spread fraud that occurred in the election that the Supreme Court might let the state legislatures decide the election. So, think about it—Republicans have 30 state legislatures, while Democrats have 19. Its gonna get interesting, people. You cannot steal an election and think that your presidency will have legitimacy. It cannot. Joe Biden is your illegitimate president and Commander in Thief.

    • @Truth Seeker No, Biden won fair and square, there was no fraud, no illegal votes, no stealing the election and he won the popular vote by a clear 5 million votes. Trump just cannot handle being seen as a loser and he will wreck the country rather than accept it as he is terrified of being punished for his many crimes. He will resign and claim foul play so that Pence will pardon him for federal crimes but he will still be liable to state prosecution.

      He is the cheat, he is a fraud and he is lying to you and he has been all along. Biden will bring the people back together if you and your ilk allow it but I suspect you prefer to be bitter and twisted for whatever reason.

  5. This means we will have a president who will actually put America first.

      @K. McKee baaahaha so true, and thousands of morons will throw their money into the, let’s pay lawyers millions to delay trump going to jail scheme.

    • @Sean Hurley Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

    • Heather Melissa | November 12, 2020 at 9:02 AM | Reply

      @Glenn McGeath in the real world. You live in opposite land and look like a fool

    • @Tsubadai Khan No. You are projecting. It was tRump who gave to the super rich and only to the super rich. And always served the Wall Street. 240.000 Americans died because he didn’t want to upset the Wall Street. Good that this orange nightmare will be over for good in January.

    • @T Patterson yes, if a person has diabetes but dies from gangrene caused by complications then diabetes isn’t a problem right ?

  6. Trump’s orange face will match his orange jumpsuit in 2021.

    • Shawn Badanjek | November 12, 2020 at 2:31 AM | Reply

      @Arc That’s fine. He can keep his base.

    • Richard Darlington | November 12, 2020 at 2:44 AM | Reply

      Could we please stop with the hateful rhetoric?
      Joe Biden and Kamala (Mamala) Harris won.
      Let’s focus on that.
      As for me, I’m over the moon!

    • Stop it, stop it now!!! You are raising my hopes of seeing the crazydent in an orange jumpsuit only for me to be disappointed later😂🤣😂

      Let’s hope he don’t drop the soap in the shower too often, as he may end up with a funny walk

    • Pauline MORTON | November 12, 2020 at 6:39 AM | Reply

      Lovely silver shiny cuffs and a really fetching orange ( fave color, Donny!) jumpsuit, with WE GRABBED YOU BY THE BALLOT printed on the back. How tasteful!!

  7. Trump is grifting. He’s dragging his feet and fundraising off this. Take a look at his campaign website. He’s begging for donations for his “legal defense fund.” He’s supposedly a billionaire yet his dumb bunny supporters will shower tens or hundreds of millions of $$ on him for his “fight.” They’re all being conned and he’s crying all the way to the bank.

  8. This is what actual leadership looks like, this is what we voted for, and leadership is what we got. Team Biden/Harris have their work cut out for them as Trump damaged the country greatly.

      @JimBobBek Good one.. nothing to back it up? Didn’t think so.

    • @JimBobBek so no facts, just delusional thinking
      Life is too short to waste on trump’s uneducated
      Bye pookie

    • @Sam McConnich that’s all across the world you moron. Grow up

    • @JimBobBek grow up?
      Well dolt, let is see about your fuhrer and his jump in farm bankruptcies by 24percent last year and associated suicides
      Let us see his lies to his troops about pay raise
      How about the fact he killed more civilians in a few months than Obama did in 8 years
      How about the fact Obama dropped so much ordinance on ISIL that they had to replace it
      How about when Drump shipped 18 tons of PPE to china and praised China’s response to corona and its transparency
      How about trump killing 230k
      Two years of complete control no healthcare, and still he lied he had a plan even during the debates
      He never went after Hillary, wonder why?
      Because he lied
      Jumping debt and deficit that Americans will have to pay for
      Shall we talk about his golfing every 4.5 days
      The street mentally ill I worked with have better developed delusions than trump supporters
      Bye Felicia

    • @JimBobBek , you are correct it should not have been that that close, but moronic idiotic bs, is that not a double negative? Bottom line is about half our population is so ignorant as not to accept that this is not 1950 any longer. They are unwilling to accept that the country is getting darker. They are like a bunch of people trying to hold the tide back with a couple of bales of straw. They are too ignorant and unwilling to train for new jobs, and think that their coal mining or automobile manufacturing jobs are coming back. Bottom line they are losers and full of fear and hate, and Trump appealed to that fear and hate just like Hitler did in 1930’s Germany, and the same type of people that were drawn to Hitler are drawn to Trump.

  9. The silence of the lambs, the whining and screaming of Republican lambs on their way out.

  10. A deeper strategy? Oh, yes! How good it is to hear a President Elect planning!

  11. China and Russia haven’t congratulated president-elect Biden. We all know why

  12. President elect Biden will surround himself with the most capable people to form his administration.

    • @Truth Seeker , what you have is a bogus laptop that was created by a computer specialist that was a Trump loyalist. You right wingers have claimed that Hunter Biden made tens of millions of dollars. What multi millionaire takes his laptop to a small computer repair shop, when he could easily buy a new one?

    • @J M M Yes – No Wars under Trump. Three Noble Peace Prize nominations for the Middle East peace agreements. Biden will destroy America.

    • Kidding? Klain? Susan ‘Benghazi’ Rice? Biden is corrupt. He will destroy America. CNN and MSNBC viewers are brainwashed.

    • @Phil M. . you silly fool, guess you forgot that after the republican investigation they found no wrong doing in Benghazi. Then Kevin McCarthy admitted that the whole investigation was just a republican political ploy to tank Clinton’s approval. Republicans know all about abuse of power. It was Trump and the republicans that are trying to destroy America. Look around you, this is America under the leadership of Trump and the republicans. That is why America voted to fire Trump and hire Biden.

    • @Phil M. It’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt.

  13. Doesn’t Joe know those jobs are supposed to go to relatives? An administration without nepotism — how will we live with honesty and decency in government?!

  14. “Let’s be absolutely clear: Trump has no realistic chance of winning this election. Courts are not just dismissing his lawsuits, they’re scornful of them. He produces allegations but no evidence, and his allegations collapse when examined. Meanwhile, even if there were statewide recounts, the average such recount over the last 20 years has changed just 430 votes. That’s why every previous presidential contender in this situation has gracefully conceded defeat — not because it’s good for the winner, but because it’s necessary for the country to heal. … Yet Trump is denying reality and impeding a lawful transition in ways that diminish the United States before the world, that make our country less governable and that risk inciting violence. This is presidential vandalism.”
    — Nicholas Kristof, November 11, 2020

  15. Wow, you can feel free to express your opinion without being attacked or insulted by the President. Free speech is back.

    • Lisa B in Hawaii | November 12, 2020 at 5:29 AM | Reply

      And the media won’t be attacked for doing their jobs and asking questions. What a return to sanity finally.

    • @Lisa B in Hawaii And while the media has been so honed and tuned to responding to the insanity and inconpetence of the last 4 years – while they’ll likely continue to be on this _new_ admin the same way. Hopefully, after a couple of months, the material will be so boring, because it’s “just” government finally (mostly) working as it’s supposed to, doing its job – that media will mostly move on to something else.

      Imagine a future where government – at least the admin and cabinet, maaaaybe even congress – “just works”. Where its absurdities is no longer a thing, and we mostly don’t need to think or hear of it in our everyday lives.

      I can’t wait for the day when the biggest news is a disagreement over the wording of Section 5 of the Endangered Fisheries Management Bill for period 21/22. Boring politicians are best!

    • Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow | November 12, 2020 at 10:58 AM | Reply

      @The Daily Beater or a tan suit. The horror.

    • @pr0xZen it will be boring – but they will call out things when Joe needs to be called out. Except within right wing media. CHINA JOE reigns supreme over there and they will harass him at a much greater level than left wing media did with Trump

  16. Like ants on the march, go around Trump and his ‘administration.’ He can’t stop Biden taking office, he can only leave a mess behind.

  17. Everyday and everyday , my respect for Joe Biden grows a bit more .

    • It should, he is a real leader, he does not hold grudges; hence the reason he was able to pick kamala harris, after the way she savaged him in the debates. Only a true leader could do that. I doubt I could; I would be too afraid of her.

    • @Ronnie Mead Exactly,the other hand Trump picked Pence,just because he thought he’s weaker than him.

    • Well, if you ever want to see the man for who he really is, I don’t mind helping you with that.
      You only need to be ready to face reality.

    • A Pimp Named Slick Back | November 12, 2020 at 3:37 PM | Reply

      Take a look in the mirror and hold yourself and who u voted for accountable you have no back bone and can only keep the finger pointing like every thing Trump has done /doing is within the law. Give me a break!

  18. I will sleep better and won’t have to worry a lot with the new Biden presidency.

      @BILL W did the 240,000 that died from Covid get their feelings hurt? Are the families of the dead just suffering from a bad case of being offended? Orange man didn’t do his job. People died. Orange man still not doing his job, creating a national security risk by creating a vacuum in the highest office in the land.

    • Just the fact that republicans did lose the senate and gained seats in the house is absolute proof that the big orange man in the house is an embarassment to a majority of americans. He needs to pack up because he is fired and we can all go back to some tiny semblance of normalcy, if there can be any with 240 thousand of our citizens gone because of Trump and his enablers. Its over now let a true leader move us forward.
