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

To clarify this was Republican Senator Ron Johnson that said this not Pompeo as it might sound from my post above.  One of Trump's enablers in his quest to be declared the winner of a fraudulent election.

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!

So, what exactly what would you like to see this task force doing that isnt already being done?

"Blood on his hands"?  You also might want to check out what Biden's new chief of staff said about covid in the early days, and refresh yourself on what Biden said.

If your hospital still doesnt have adequate ppe,  that's on your administration.  Not Trump.  And nothings going to magically change on inauguration day.

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.

This really isn't that unusual.  Pretty much every election shady stuff is found out and exposed, but all of a sudden months before the election Trump says this is the most corrupt election ever.  Why couldn't he expose it then if he knew this.  Shame on him.

But yes, if there is "plenty of evidence" I want it exposed.  Trump's cases are being dismissed in the courts.  Are the courts in on it too?  Where is this evidence that you happen to have that can put a stop to this?

  I have a friend that said Fauci is an ass and needs to be fired because he first joined in the idea that masks weren't needed.  

I think what Biden and Fauci both can do is look back at where we went wrong and what we can do differently in the today and now with what evidence we have today. 

Trump has done some good things, but is he able to look back and admit some mistakes and go a different direction based on science and what we know today?

I think the virus has hit us hard and I'm not willing to say Trump has blood on his hands, but it's quite clear to me that we went the wrong direction. But who knows, perhaps the virus has a mind of it's own and doesn't care what we've done.  We could have done everything right and it still could have hit us just as hard.  El Paso has had to increase their mobile morgues from 4 to 10 this week.  

Right now, as I said it's too late.  The virus is burning through us and even a lockdown isn't going to help.  Biden, whatever his plan is isn't going to help.  We just have to roll up our sleeves, not fight mask mandates, social distance, and make sure that health care providers have what they need to include beds, staff and PPE and morgue capacity.

Also, in the months before this election, over 400 lawsuits were filed across the country to change election laws and rules.  Rules and laws that should be changed only by state legislators.  This was unprecedented.

Evidence is coming out each day, such as affidavits from election workers who say they were instructed to ignore rules.

I think much of it was the covid effect in 2020 which is why it's unprecedented.  Also, Democrats smacked back at some policies and laws that they viewed as voter suppression.

What is the reason why when state governments, including his ally here in Florida (where we've had mail in ballots at least 20 years, where the governor, state house, state senator, and two national senators are all Republican), first started to encourage mail in votes, did Trump decide this was corrupt and 2020 would be the most corrupt election of all-time. 

Why didn't he prove it at the time he said it, to avoid his defeat?

How is the Secretary of State saying there will be a smooth transition to Trump's 2nd term?

Bring all that out in the open and be transparent with how it benefited Biden and created fraud in this election.   Don't nitpick a few things here and there.  I want to see how this was a fraudulent election and I promise to scream for Biden and the Democrats head from highest mountain and congratulate Trump.

That's certainly true. They need to start with Louis DeJoy.

He was a successful Republican Party fundraiser.   He donated personally over one million to Donald Trump, and under his watch his company got million in a contract from the USPS.  He went on to try to make mail voting problematic.  What's the problem?

Off topic.  The postal service is in a financial bind reporting big losses.  But interesting timing:  Trump:  mail in voting is a fraud.  DeJoy:  unrelated to this we're going to cut mail services.

The tough question of lockdowns is almost like between a rock and hard place and leaders really can't win.

I follow our mayor on Facebook and he posts the rate of positivity daily which has been rising. It's always interesting to see people comment.  Some say "you caused this by allowing a road race and opening up the economy" and others say "you're a dictator with your mask mandate".   The backlash if we lock down here would be severe.

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.

Oh, Trump will go.

If he doesn't, I expect Americans who believe in the Constitution will show up outside the the WH, with pitchforks, to remove the turd.

A lockdown would be a good start.

Bars and restaurants are an excellent source of spread. Studies have proven this.

Gyms are safer.

Kids don't need to be playing organized sports. In Fayette County, KY, 65 student athletes tested positive last week.

It is so, so, sad, that this country lost vital ground against the virus, because a mentally ill person sits in the WH.

Remember when Trump said it would "disappear," back in April?

Renember when his fans said it would "disappear," after the election?

It is raging, and getting hotter!

I believe ultimately he will but the time is now to concede.

  What really disgusts me at the moment is his enablers in congress.  Republicans in congress need to face the reality, be patriotic and support the idea that a 244 year old Democracy stands intact and this is how Democracy works.  They are spineless.  The entire four years Republicans in congress have declined to stand up against what they know is wrong, mainly because ultimately he does their bidding with the conservative agenda and because he's popular and they need his base.
