Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko on Saturday issued an appeal to long-term ally Russia as he faced growing pressure to step down following a disputed election that has triggered protests at home and condemnation abroad.

Turns out Trump isn't the only wanna-be dictator eager to suck Putin's weener.

What do I do pooty? The people are rebelling!!!

You know what pooty will do. He will send in his stormtroopers to "rescue" any Russians stranded there. Maybe shoot a few missiles and accidentally down a few airliners. Maybe annex some land. "Restore" the peace. While Trumpy is busy killing more Americans to keep them busy and distracted.

Trumpy is onboard with whatever pooty decides.

This is so sad, in normal times the US President would warn Putin that taking action in Belarus would risk further sanctions, but Combover Quisling will must oil himself up and jump right into the sausage party.

"Combover Quisling will must oil himself up and jump right into the sausage party."

He's taking lessons in case he gets a second term.

Anybody who votes for Trump has NO IDEA what they're getting into.

I would be happy with Belarus collapsing but Putin would probably use it as a pretext to invade their country and all their neighbors.

I can picture Trump begging Russia for help if the same thing happened here.

Of course there's one sure way to avoid it . . . President Biden.

Oh s*** twin you just got me thinking about how if Trump looses by less than a landslide he will likely ask foreign countries to help him combat a non-existent coup in America.

Then again if Trump tries that in less than 24 hours we will have President Pelosi.

If Trump loses by less than a landslide he'll take it through the court system with the help of A.G. Barr. His best hope would be to bypass the lower courts and ask for an emergency hearing by the Supreme Court. Without any concrete evidence for whatever ridiculous claims Trump's lawyers present (which has already happened) it's unlikely the Supreme Court, especially Chief Justice Roberts, would want to open that can of worms. It's more likely he'd send it back asking for evidence of fraud or whatever Trump tries to claim.

BTW, any attempt at a coup would come in Trump's second term. He's trying to lay the ground work for it now. He's trying to stir up an excuse to use the Resurrections Act which would usurp local and state control over law enforcement.

It's also how dictators are born.

There are only two ways Nancy Pelosi could become President.

One would be if both the President and Vice President were to vacate the office prior to the election. She would be third in line.

Two would be if there is no definitive decision of the election by noon, January 20, 2021, by lawsuits or whatever reason, and only if she is still Speaker of the House after the new Congress is sworn in on January 3rd, and if the majority of Congress agrees, Nancy Pelosi could be President pro tem. But so could a member of the Senate, depending on who holds the majority.

Right now the Senate has 23 seats up for grabs. So it doesn't look good for them.

"Surprised it isn't in the press with higher coverage at the moment."

I saw enough of it to make me sick to my stomach to think that the same thing was already happening here.

We don't ever have to worry about Trump fighting for democracy.

NATO in its previous life, when they could depend on the U.S. as their ally would be lined up and ready to defend Belarus but because we have a traitor in the WH it isn't.

Trump is Putin's tool for reasserting Russia's role in the world.

Trump is the most impotent president in the history of America.

Never before in the history of the United States has a president been a lap dog to another nation's leader.

Conservatives are cucks.

"Trump is the most impotent president in the history of America."

US Q2 GDP down 32.9%
Germany Q2 GDP down 10%.

So much winning!

It's Russia's sphere of influence.
It's not really our concern.
You voted for this.
Don't you remember?
