Fox News has already started their Republican agenda of criticizing Joe Biden policy.  

Their headline story in big bold letters as if this is the most important issue is that he will require mandate masks, and we know republicans hate masks.

They also criticize his super spreader celebrations which he has been silent on.

Just horrible isn't it.

Predictions are pretty dire for the time he takes over.  Wonder how much he can do, especially with a belligerent population.

New York Times is saying a "terrifying surge".

Biden has said he'd work with local governors and mayors to mandate masks in public. An October modeling study showed that if 95% of Americans wore masks, more than 100,000 lives could be saved from Covid-19.

Mask mandates by the Democrat governor here for 5-6 months.   Every day or few days th in NHS seem to progress to another shutdown. 

I hope Biden and his supporters arent banking on a mask mandate to get control of the virus.

I'm betting the solution would not lie in any *one* intervention, but in many-masks, testing, contract tracing, social distancing, and regulation of large gatherings come to mind. Masks will and should be a huge part of this effort.

The fact that anyone disputes the value of masks at this point is just ridiculous, and DJT is largely responsible for this.

If Trump had done the OPPOSITE of what he ended up doing-coming out strong with all of those interventions, making the case that people who do these things are patriotic, supporting the science, elevating actual experts in the field of epidemiology, infectious disease, etc., instead of trying to stifle them and repress the truth of the pandemic, we would have come out so much better than we are now, which is just a complete tragic disaster. 

Had he been willing to be on the RIGHT side of this, he would have won this election in a landside. He would have been called a hero and would have at least somewhat mitigated the damage to his tarnished legacy.

The metro area i'm in has all those mitigation strategies, a democrat mayor, democrat governor, and Biden got 80% of the vote.  Are you trying to tell me Trump would have had a influence on these people's behavior?

I could you take you out on the town tonight have have no shortage of places to go where bars and restaurants are filled up to what they are allowed.  It's been going on for months.  And, now we've had more restrictions come back in place, so presumably its not working up to what we want.

So, what is Biden going to do that we're not already here (and with a heavily liberal population)?

Among a large segment of the population,  Trump would never been called a hero.  That's a rediculous statement.

Biden really isn't going to be able to do anything at this point.  Our behavior is what it is.  Trump could have done much better role modeling good behavior and helping states out instead of a "Free Michigan!" type of attitude.  We could have done better with contract tracing.  He could have followed up his travel ban from China with better actions. 

But it's too late for that and even Biden can't do anything about it.  I know people that are vacationing in Palm Springs, one is in Costa Rica, and another flies out to Puerto Rico.

Republicans really want herd immunity.  They don't say it, but our governors stance of not having any restrictions here in Florida kinds of proves that to me.  

Our local progressive mayor in our liberal county that went for Biden is even hesitant to want to change thing as our positivity rate has jumped form 3% to 9%.    

Heck, even I go to restaurants, the gym, yoga, and bowling...but I do it differently with a mask and six feet away from people.   Right now it's more about what we as individuals do.  If people would only take some responsibility rather than acting like it doesn't exist...liberals and democrats alike we might get a handle on it.  

Biden didn't win because he has a better plan for Covid.  He won because people wanted Trump out...and he barely did that.

Wrong as usual. But not unexpected.

Trump screwed this one up big time. And he paid for it at the ballot.

 

The incompetence in his administration is truly astounding. Lawsuits filed incorrectly. Accusations of fraud brought with absolutely no evidence. "A lady said she heard a guy say..." "We have a no-zero number of Republicans in the room."

The important press conference. At the landscaping company parking lot. Across the street from the crematorium...next the adult book store...between the fire hydrant and the yellow hose.

 

But the laughable incompetence pales at the blatant attempts to deny the will of the people...he's trying to see if he can attempt a coup...with his supporters willing to turn their heads away from the death of democracy in this country simply because they do not like the results of an election. It's disgusting.

As a lifelong Republican voter, I remember well all the taunting after the 2016 election "You lost-get over it!" Over and over and over. The shoe is on the other foot and all I hear is "they cheated! Send in the faithless electors!"

This should make any actual patriot sick to their stomach.

Pompeo chillingly said "we will have a smooth transition to a 2nd Trump term" (paraphrase)

When asked if he congratulated Biden it was "we have nothing to congratulate him about".

McConnell says Trump has every right to file lawsuits and not to concede.

He has enablers.  What do they know that we don't know?  What are the plans, where is the transparency?  Where is the evidence.

If Democrats in several states managed to fake votes in order for Biden to win, I would like to know.  Really I would even if it means Trumps wins (he rarely loses). 

People are getting paranoid that we are under a coup and that Trump won't go and conspiracy theories are rampant especially with his firing of people. 

He's brought nothing but shame and disgrace to the American way.  Either concede or be transparent.

There is plenty of evidence that a lot of questionable stuff was going.  Enough to change the ultimate result?  Doubtful.  But it should be exposed and dealt with to keep it from happening again.

For the sake "Heart-Pumping, Red-Blooded" citizens of the United States, 12:01 PM on January 20th, 2021 can not come sooner enough! 

Because of Trump, the Covid-19 is spreading again. Our fellow citizens continue to die. Trump is more worried about losing the election than this pandemic. Again, Trump has blood on his hands.

Biden has a task force that is waiting to officially start on January 20th, 2021, to (FINALLY) deal with this pandemic.  There's a lot of mess to clean up that is left behind by Trump (and his enablers). But at least SOMETHING is going to get done to fight against this pandemic. Personally?!? I look forward to having the hospital where I work given the amount of PPEs that we need, that ALL Hospitals need, to APPROPRIATELY deal with this virus. Without a doubt, until the vaccine against Covid-19 is made and distributed throughout the country (and throughout the world),  it's going to be a wild ride. But at least we will have a President who actually CARES for the "Heart-Pumping, Red-Blooded" human-beings that actually make our country a country. (Trump can rot in hell, for all I care!)

And to those individuals who continue to support Trump: SHAME On you! Shame on you!
