Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

President Donald Trump made explicit Saturday the strategy his legal team has been hinting at for days: He wants Republican-led legislatures to overturn election results in states that Joe Biden won.

"Why is Joe Biden so quickly forming a Cabinet when my investigators have found hundreds of thousands of fraudulent votes, enough to "flip" at least four States, which in turn is more than enough to win the Election?" Trump said, despite refusing to produce any such evidence either publicly or in court cases filed by his attorneys.

"Hopefully the Courts and/or Legislatures will have the COURAGE to do what has to be done to maintain the integrity of our Elections, and the United States of America itself," Trump said.

But with few cases pending in courts, Trump's options have narrowed and he is becoming increasingly reliant on longshot scenarios where election results are not certified and Republican-controlled statehouses in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Arizona and Georgia intervene to declare him the winner.

GOP legislative leaders in those states have not endorsed this approach."

This is "Benedict Arnold" territory, as far as traitors to their country go.

... my investigators have found hundreds of thousands of fraudulent votes, enough to "flip" at least four States, ...

Male bovine fecal matter.

Here's a look at some prominent instances in which Trump's lawyers have conspicuously refused to embrace the language of "fraud" while standing before judges, quietly undercutting the President and his allies' increasingly histrionic public stance.

Serious question Et, when does this become sanctionable?

These POS should never practice law again.

"Why is Joe Biden so quickly forming a Cabinet when my investigators..."

Did Trump's investigators finally get back from Hawaii?

Donald Trump is attempting a coup. It was predicted he would do this FOUR YEARS AGO. It was seen as inevitable because he is a CRIMINAL who fears for his money and freedom.

We have a few Trump supporters who still come here. Are you in or out for Trump? Or is that a stupid question?

"It must be misery to awaken to another day of being Donald Trump. ... His childlike ignorance - preserved by a lifetime of single-minded self-promotion - concerning governance and economics guarantees that whenever he must interact with experienced and accomplished people, he is as bewildered as a kindergartener at a seminar on string theory."

Trump has his cult all riled up, ready to die for their spiritual leader, and the Republican Party is mostly silent about what is essentially a coup attempt.

This childish fantasy has gone on long enough. Trump and his team of deranged lawyers, and all their diehard adherents, have already poisoned any hope of reunifying a gravely wounded nation with disingenuous cries of fraud. Even worse, I fear violence as Trump is dragged out of the White House kicking and screaming.

None of this is a surprise considering what a petulant oaf Trump has shown himself to be every day, but we cannot allow him and his co-conspirators to continue making a mockery of our system.

Coup attempts will not be tolerated in America.

this is worse than terrorism.

Honestly, this will make the next four years VERY dangerous, I fully expect Reichwing terrorism to explode exponentially. I usually don't carry off duty, I find always being aware of a gun on my hip, in my ankle bolster or in a belly band to be more of a pain than it's worth. That is about to change.

Trump needs to over turn his shhty britches and get walking.

He's been evicted. Which. I probably odd for him. Considering he's the one normally evicting people from his shht buildings and apartments.

Technically what the orange turd is attempting isn't a coup, but an "autogolpe."

Technically those who help should be charged with Treason. My God, PLEASE tell me I don't live in Russia and people won't stand for this.

Norms being thrown out the window and why they need to be codified into law.
