Wrong again Rambo... written multiple times... I, like many, didn't have an issue with many of his policies... it was the constant chaos he cited.... his first debate where he acted like a school yard screaming match... and OMG the lies...

We're all still waiting for trump to do one nice thing. Thanking him for letting a virus run rampant and letting hundreds of thousands of Americans die from it is not exactly something that deserves a thank you.

It is not about saying something nice about Trump or not saying something nice about Trump.

Trump has made allegations that a crime of "voter fraud" has been committed. It is up to him to provide the evidence of that claim. When multiple judges have asked Trump's lawyers if they are alleging "fraud" all of Trump's lawyers said no.

I find it baffling that Raffesperger won’t share his findings. You’d think that if he had hard evidence that disproved the President’s allegations, he’d present it. That he doesn’t makes me think that he either has none, or that what he’s relying on is of questionable merit.

Either way, it’s clear that the MSM are intent on distorting and misrepresenting everything the President says. I suppose there’s something to be said for consistency~

It is up to the President to present evidence of his allegations, not the other way around. He has had two months "to find" the evidence. That he hasn't makes me think that he either has none, or that what he's relying on is of questionable merit.

Georgia has a republican gov., a republican AG, a republican state legislature and a republican state supreme court. These men being accused by trump are all life long republicans who have done nothing but support him. So why on earth would they turn on trump? Just how in the heck could dems rig any election in a state controlled by republicans? Hunches, feelings and being a sore loser are not good reasons for over turning an election. You seem to be a republican, if you wouldn't sell out your party then pray tell why would these high ranking republican officials sell out the republican party? How come no claims of fraud in states like Ohio and florida? Oh that is right trump won those states so of course those states had legal elections.

Nailed it harrison...you get it... we get it... the only ones that don't on this blog are Holmes and Rambo... never have...never will... Their source of news is FOX...Limbaugh, Beck, Savage...

Eagle24

Come on Holmes...no evidence????? how many court cases have been filed with zero success... You're smarter than that! Courts are where evidence of the bogus claims are provided...not social media...or Trump media... You GOPers scream "constitution" in every sentence unless it doesn't support your position...

Maybe when Trump is in jail or Russia she can come home and represent the people she was voted in by and stop supporting a lying crook.

Holmes

She was voted in by Republicans not democrats ergo she is representing the people she “was voted in by”. If anyone is is a lying crook it’s Beijing Biden and Co.

harrison

You're quite wrong. Once elected it's her sworn duty to represent everyone in her district not just those that voted for her. We all pay her salary so it's her job . Is she supposed to make sure republicans get the vaccine before dems? Do only towns that voted for her get federal aid? As for the baloney about Biden and China, I'd like to see some proof. For example we have proof that Ivanka got patent exemptions for her business when no one else could. We also have proof that Jared sold visas to various Chinese citizens.

Maybe when she's traveling to Georgia to stump she can pack 11780 votes to add to the national election... and score some points with Trump... One of the hero's of the election is Brad Raffensperger... "the problem is Mr. President is your data is wrong"... John McCain is smiling...and giving Brad a thumbs up..

Holmes

McCain was a Rino. Looks like Elise is going to question the election, good for her.

harrison

McCain was a true American hero that's why draft dodging Bone Spurs trump hates him. When duty called McCain wasn't afraid to answer the call and trump was too yellow to answer so he got a dr. to phony up his med records. As for RINO check out McCains voting record in congress. He almost always voted the way the party said to. Just because he recognized trump for the crook he was does not make him a rino.

Eagle24

Maybe share your military and public service record Holmes...and we'll judge how you stack up against McCain... Harrison cited McCain's... take your time.. 3 - 2 - 1 crickets...

Pitbull

Maybe you share your military service record, Eagle. 3,2,1, ...crickets.
