  1. If they break the law or keep trying to break they should not only be fined but jailed. Biden/Harris won point blank period.

      American democracy is very much reliant on norms and honor of duty. If people decide to go against norms and put aside honor and duty then you’ll find there isnt a lot of legal recourse to force them to do so. This has been proven over and over again and is a massive flaw in your Democracy.

    • @incipidsigninsetup True, but here in Michigan there actually are laws in place covering this exact scenario

    • Deborah Freedman | November 21, 2020 at 12:37 AM | Reply

      @incipidsigninsetup So, now Congress will have to pass laws mandating the norm. This is what happened when FDR won a 4th term as president. Before, the norm was no president ran a third time. When FDR broke the norm, they made it a law.

  2. Voting is important, without it the republicans don’t know if they should ignore you!

  3. 2016 TRUMP: “MAGA”
    2020: “Morons Are Going Away”😁

    BIDEN/HARRIS 2💙2💙 🇺🇸

  4. Every republican president has given a recession but Trump takes the cake 🤕

    When will Americans learn.

  5. How much did it cost to tax-payers for 278 visits to golf course which Trump took since inauguration?

    141 millions!

    • Wow… I should start my own country club and charge MILLIONS!

    • Ronan Broderick
      While tax-paying, low-wage workers who lost their jobs and small business owners are having financial difficulties, because of a virus that Trump ignored for almost two months while it spread out of control.
      Right now, those millions would feed many of those who lost their jobs and have to dip into their small savings. That money would have kept many small businesses alive during this difficult time.
      I see restaurant owners on TV crying for having to lay off their employees and close their restaurant.
      Trump believes taxpayer money is his and should be spent on him, so he resents having to help low-wage workers who, coincidentally, pay more taxes than he does, and also pay for his golf outings.
      He said that they should not be paid if they’re not working, when the reason they’re not working is because of him.

    • $141 million for Trump to go to Florida and New Jersey for 4 years and one kid, $108 million to go to Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard for 8 years and two kids for Obama. How is going to jersey and florida more expensive than Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard?😂😂😂

    • @A J
      I hope Letitia James looks into that also.
      I have a feeling some of those expenses were padded.

  6. Monica Palmer, William Hartman, Mike Shirkey, and Lee Chatfield hate Democracy.
    They are potential traitors to our country.
    Shirkey and Chatfield were met at Metro Airport by a crowd of angry protesters before they boarded their flight to Washington to meet with Trump.

  7. This has to be the dumbest political hills to die on for an orange criminal autocrat who doesn’t care one bit about them back.

    • Exactly, this is just going to fail, tarnish whatever reputation they had and probably see them end up in jail.

      Remember when the Russians hacked the DNC and RNC, but only weaponized the DNC data? What makes you think that Putin didn’t give the RNC data to his American puppet, to use as leverage? Trump has dirt on most of the Republicans, that is why only squeaky clean ones, like Romney and some of the women, are speaking up about what Trump is doing.

    Only the GOP have been trying, and succeeding, in denying the people’s will….for decades now.

    The unAmerican GOP must be abolished.

  9. Who needs Russia? Loudest attacks on America are from Trump.

  10. If Satan were president, could he do a worse job?

    • Satan is a president.

    • A mythical nothing story character that lazy parents lie to innocent and trusting children to scare them into behaving, doing a better job than Trump? Well, I think having nothing in charge is better than the four years of active sabotage that Trump has conducted.

    • @Sara Heart that’s not true, Trump is a much better fit for the Antichrist that the devil. Currently we have famine around the world, plagues of locusts, the Covid virus making us all stir crazy while it kills, more fighting and unrest than ever before, and the cherry is Trump returning power to Jerusalem while pushing Israel to fight Syria and Iran on the Golan Heights. All of those were prophesied in the book of revelations, and I really hope this isn’t the end times but I did always wonder why so few christians were saved in the rapture. Now I understand it’s because Trump has corrupted the christians on the right who now have televangelists who own multiple private jets each…

    • @mistercohaagen you have a very negative view on evangelicals, true Christians are not what the GOP turned them into. You can attack people over their beliefs that have no impact on you all you want, but it says much more about you than us…

  11. Looks like the republicans have all turned into Karens just like their idol.

  12. GOP “We’re the patriots!”

    Also GOP

    “Democracy is overrated.”

  13. Well we’ve finally found the voter fraud but it’s REPUBLICANS committing it.

  14. Cheeto man lost & is running scared… he’s trying to take the whole GOP down with him. There a but a few GOP with a backbone that will stand up for what is True and Right. The People have spoken, let their voices be heard!

  15. So I guess we finally found some evidence of fraud. And low and behold it’s the Republicans committing it…….. #StopTheSteal

    • In 2016 the biggest case of recent voter fraud was discovered and reversed in North Carolina. He was a proud Trump supporter who changed a ton of ballots for Trump.

  16. Another wonderful “woman from Michigan!” 😍

    • Now I’m understanding who so many terrible Michigan women moved to my state, they couldn’t hold a light to some of the ones who stayed…

  17. Trump: “I would like to speak to the election officials’ manager”

    Ultimate form of Karen

  18. Jocelyn Benson deserves credit for her effort to protect the will of the people in Michigan. She’s intelligent, competent and above all, ethical. All the qualities of a great public official. The citizens of Michgan should be proud of her performance.

    “The greatest Democracy in the world”

    If this was even remotely true then Democracy around the world would be on the edge of extinction.
