The Trumpers may be turning on Tucker:

Tucker Carlson Dared Question a Trump Lawyer. The Backlash Was Quick.

The president’s allies quickly closed ranks behind Sidney Powell and her pro-Trump conspiracy theory, accusing the Fox host of betrayal.

I thought TRUMP was going to be too busy to go golfing.  Wouldn't G20 meetings be the kind of thing that would take precedent over playing a round of golf.  NOPE.  Not in TRUMP world.  He's the greatest POTUS ever in their eyes.

 

Real leaders wouldn't blow off G20 meetings.

Trump skipped a coronavirus meeting with G20 leaders to play golf

 

  • President Donald Trump was noticeably absent from a coronavirus meeting with this year's G20 Summit world leaders. 
  • CNN reported that leaders from Germany, France, South Korea, and Argentina were scheduled to participate in the event.
  • But Trump was noticeably absent and White House pool reporters said during a meeting focused on coronavirus preparedness Trump had arrived at one of his golf courses. 
  • The United States, with more than 11.9 million cases and 255,000 deaths, makes up the largest share of global coronavirus cases. 

Dopey Donald showing once again what his priorities are. Just another in a long series of ass-clown moves by the lame duck.

Picking candidates based, first and foremost, on their ability to suck up to one man will eventually be the death of the Republican Party.

 

Start rant:  Especially when this person is Donald Trump.  Seriously, how the #$%@%^ to Donald @^@$'n Trump become the person that millions of people put their faith in to be the most influential person in the world?!  Donald @$@#'n Trump.  The cheater.  The liar.  The broke-ass business man.  The 3rd rate reality show host.  Even when he was making his "billions" he was a punch line.  How did that punch line become the most powerful man in America?  Thank god I live in Canada, it's not as if half the population here has ever wanted to make Peter Pocklington Prime Minister for life (but even if we did he'd be better than Trump).  End rant.

Very short answer, it is like a cult and that is not a joke.

They have turned on people like Romney, McCain, Kasich, Bannon, Hannity, Drudge, Carlson, Inghram, Kemp, Reagan etc.

 

Those that don’t support the “truth” are treasonous, RINOS, chicoms, deep state etc.

I don’t see how that is different than Jim Jones type of behavior.

Ya, having TRUMP as POTUS isn't going to be a train wreck.  /s

 

In reality, there is BS like this.  OF course hyper partisan judges are going to be a godsend.  /s

 

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/trump-florida-judges-conversion-therapy-ban-b1759706.html?utm_source=reddit.com

Trump appointed judges in Florida overturn ban on conversion therapy for minors

 

The judges ruled that the practice violates the First Amendment

That's &^@#ed up. Conversion therapy is absolutely disgusting, beyond &^@#ed up. What a horrible, twisted joke. For minors no less.

When court cases fail, try and sabotage the recount.....<_<

Officials overseeing the election in Wisconsin's largest county on Saturday accused ballot tabulation observers for President Trump of trying to obstruct the recount.

Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson said that in some cases observers were objecting to nearly every ballot pulled to count, The Associated Press reported.

Christenson said the complaints were putting the recount behind schedule, and many observers were breaking rules by interrupting vote counters with questions or objections. He called the behavior "unacceptable."

"It's not our job to train their observers on what they're observing," he said, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "They clearly don't know what they're doing and so they keep asking questions. And we've said to the Trump campaign, you need to tell your people what you're looking for here because they're objecting to every ballot."

A lawyer speaking on behalf of the Trump campaign denied any allegations his side acted in bad faith.

"I want to get to the point of dialing everything down ... and not yelling at each other," the lawyer, Joe Voiland, said, according to the AP.

The president's campaign this week requested recounts in Milwaukee and Dane, Wisconsin's two largest and most liberal counties, in an effort to undo President-elect Joe Biden's victory in the state.

Biden leads Trump by just over 20,600 votes in Wisconsin, one of several states he flipped this year after Trump won it in 2016.

In a separate situation Saturday, county election commissioner Tim Posnanski reported there seemed to be Trump representatives violating rules that dictate one observer from each campaign per counting table. He said some observers for Trump appeared to be posing as independents, according to the AP.

Election officials also reported that one Trump observer objected to every ballot the tabulators pulled from a bag because they were folded.

The AP noted that part of the Trump campaign's strategy has been attempting to toss ballots with missing address information on the certification envelope that election clerks later filled in, despite the practice being long accepted in the state.

The news outlet also reported that at least one observer for the Trump team was escorted out of the building by sheriff's deputies Saturday after pushing an election official who lifted her coat from an observer chair.

Trump's campaign paid $3 million, required by Wisconsin state law, for the partial recount. The recount started Friday and must be completed by Dec. 1.

 

I notice that none of the usual CDC Trump supporters have been around lately. I would have expected some effort to justify the actions of the Trump campaign over the past two weeks....I mean, I'm not sure how you could, but I expected them to at least try....:unsure:

They're not Trump supporters; they're devil's advocates.

Monday in the USA will be very interesting day.  It's the day that Georgia and Pennsylvania are supposed to certify the votes.

 

If they certify the votes = Biden wins.

If they don't = Trump coup is going to happen.
