"Trump allies had spent months building up hope that Arizona would offer proof of their lies about the election, raising money along the way. Absent that proof, they did what they always do and spun reality.

"The Fake News is lying about the Arizona audit report!" Trump said in a statement Friday. "The leaked report conclusively shows there were enough fraudulent votes, mystery votes, and fake votes to change the outcome of the election 4 or 5 times over."

He loves knowing that even though he is dead politically at least he continues to live in so many heads rent free.

Standing by for the usual suspects to trip over themselves explaining why it's OK to allow rent free brain accommodations to the biggest loser of the century.

The report does not address, however, why five months and more than $5.7 million wasn't enough to definitively investigate what it presents as "potential" discrepancies.

That's a fair question. Why not?

#6 - because there were no "potential" discrepancies"?

Just spitballin' here.

Because if it bleeds, it leads . . . and Trump is hemorrhaging political boondoggles all over the place.

There's nothing "rent free" going on.. We just enjoy piling on while we wait for one of those cholesterol chunks to block a major artery to his brain.

A delusional, leading a mob of delusionals, enabled by cowards.

Truthfully, Pence certified the election results. There is no legal method to overturn the results no matter whan any of the fraudits find and they aren't finding anything. It's just a bunch of sore losers refusing to accept defeat. Jakester keeps trying to pretend Trump is living free in our heads but it is the Trumpers who are demanding the fraudits, not us. Jakester tries but fails to make this some sort of liberal thing, we never damanded a fraudit and have laughed at those who did during the entire process.

#2 - Sorry, ignoring the lump in your breast doesn't make it go away; the DOJ ignoring the threat of white supremacist violence only made the militias bigger and stronger; appeasing Hitler didn't make him weaker. Dotard is a cancer on our democracy; we must pay attention and respond to lies with facts. We'll never get the insane 20% of people back, but hopefully, we will save more folks from falling under his spell.

You really should ask that of the Republican Party, the party that fmr Pres Trump still leads and controls.

"You really should ask that of the Republican Party, the party that fmr Pres Trump still leads and controls."

I think they should change the name.

The term "Republican" is too non-descript.

I feel like it fails to address the absolute loyalty and focus the party places on Donald Trump.

It doesn't even mention him by name.

I'm sort of a bit surprised he hasn't floated the possibility of a name change. Maybe he has and it just wasn't released to the public.

I agree, Trump Cult is a more accurate description.

I think it may be too early for him to change the name. He has not (yet) purged the Republican Party of all the non-believers. There are still some who do not express unfettered fealty to fmr Pres Trump.

Didn't fmr Pres Trump at one time float the possibility of having his own party?

Because 21 million Americans are willing to violently overthrow the government.

You ignore them at your own peril. Sorry (not sorry), we won't.

We are trying to learn the lessons of Jan 6th. Not shove it under a rug and ignore it or pretend it wasn't as bad as it was and forget about it. It was not just another touristy day.

You are an insurrectionist in liberal clothing. But you are fooling no one but yourself.

Just think of it as retribution for all the misery and death he's left in his wake.

Trumpublican Party has a nice ring to it.

Thinking of all the times Republicans told Hillary voters, "You lost, get over it."

Irony is not just dead, it's got a sick elephant sitting on top of it.
