    OAN has some real hardball questions lined up for the next Trump press conference, like "Mr. President, why have you shown such patience with the criminal elements that are trying to steal this election from the American people. Don't you think it's time for a purge?"

    He really thinks he can win the election by tweeting because that's how he's governed for 4 years.

    Four days of waiting and how do I find out Biden won? From my 11-year-old daughter.

    We were in the car, she was checking her messages and said: "Biden won!"
    I said, disbelieving: "How do you know."
    "The kids in my class all say it."
    "How often do I need to tell you: never believe what kids say about the news. Where did they hear it?"
    "On CNN."
    "Well, check CNN!"

    And sure enough, after four days, the headline was finally changed to 'Biden Wins'.

    The kid was so excited, she was looking through people's windows to check if they were watching it on TV. She said "Let's play some American music. Music Trump likes." So I suggested 'Born In The USA', and told her a bit about the rallys and The Boss. She'd never heard of The Boss but she loved it and was singing along loudly before the end of the song (granted, it's not difficult).

    That was pretty unforgettable.

    Why? :p This won't be over until after the Electoral College meets, can't we keep it open through some of the transition and that vote let alone the House certification)?

    Don't make me go into the main cesspool thread...

    Yeah, I hate that ****. I don't want that cesspool of a thread, I want this cesspool of a thread so I don't have to go to that cesspool of a thread. I want to just discuss the election. :p

    We are sending a political message. This election for us is OVER, and the ****-show that is going to follow is something different.

    Celebrated with my neighbor for dinner since she had to bail on lunch. Bella Pizza from Oath Pizza, doesn't get much yuppier than that. We ate outside, such a gorgeous night. Also I learned to love SNL on my neighbors couch while they went out and I "babysat" their kids. I mean when your 12 and that inappropriate stuff is on TV it's hard not to watch. It's like nostalgia now, I still watch.

    The more y’all are loud on social and in the streets, the more it drains Trump’s force powers

    Is that a real tweet? And if it is real - the date is from August 11 2020 at 2:06 am. Would be funny if Trump though he'd watch a madcap uplifting comedy and puts on Joker to lighten up his mood.

    My old boss from my internship, Senator Carper , might be the next Head of the EPA in the new administration.[face_flag]

    Biden actually was the person to convince him Carper to run for Congress back in 1982 when he was Delaware as State Treasurer. Then served as Governor for From 1992-1999. He was then Biden's colleague in the Senate from 2008 till Biden became Veep.

    He has sat and Chaired committees on Environmental issues In the past and is similar to Biden in he is more of a Centrist compared to VP Elect Harris or other possible cabinet ministers.

    Carper is one of the coolest politicians I have met and gotten to meet during my college years and even now actually, NJ Governor Murphy now and the late Senator McCain who I had to pleasure of meeting several times while working for Senator Carper, were also pretty cool to met and talk to. Former NY Mayor Koch was also fun considering I ran into him on the street in Tel Aviv, Israel of all places, he was visiting for some award he was going to be given. I was there for a cousins Bar Mitzvah.

    Fun story
    Senator Carper gave the commencement address at my graduation dressed as Caesar Rodney(Delaware 's delegate to the Continental Congress, who was famously rode overnight while seriously ill from Suffolk County Delaware to Philadelphia to vote for Independence) on a 95 degree day in may , the ceremony was om the same day as he was grand marshal of the parade during the annual Dover Days festival, while wearing a orthopedic cast on his leg after he injured his ankle jogging.

    I am not trying trolling you or anybody else. Period.

    I was just saying that if this thread should closed then let it be locked.
