    This is the second version of the much loved or maligned US Politics Thread (depending on one's point of view)

    We'll be using the same rules as we did in the second 2020 Presidential Thread, as bolded below.

    If you post a tweet you must post it with either some thoughts of your own about it, and/or why you chose to share it. Essentially, provide some commentary of your own. We cannot interact with the author of the tweet, which stifles discussion; we can only interact with the poster. So give us something to interact with.

    Furthermore, no single image or .gif replies. Use your words. You can post them if you provide some commentary. Images and .gifs can be distracting and annoying by themselves.

    These rules are subject to change.

    One day soon we will look back at this first page and laugh. For now I sit on a constant wave of emotions from “lol soon you will be booted you orange buffoon” to “omg they’re seriously trying to take this country from the people. Maybe I should get a white nationalist tattoo to blend in as to not get exterminated.”

    Coup D'****

    Edit: I guess that word is not allowed. It's spelled with a "T" and then the letters "WAT" and works well in this particular case.

    Most states won’t do a full lockdown. Even states who had relatively good measures back in March and what have you are much more hesitant to do that now

    At least Nixon did some good things, but low bar is low bar (comparing him to Trump).

    So Georgia is doing an automatic recount and Kemp is telling everyone only legal votes will be counted. Whatever the **** that means. This won’t change anything. No recount has changed the results by more than like 200 votes

    $1 Biden's legal vote counts grows by a few dozen at least.

    I still find it hilarious that there was a glitch that gave trump a few extra thousand votes that were actually for Biden

    This newfound interest in only counting legal votes that has been in place since the invention of voting.

    Love how they still are okay with Republicans winning more seats in congress, etc. No problems with the election or mail in ballots there.

    The Republican Party is the party of Fascism of course they don’t make sense and as I said only 60% of the Republicans even buy the voter fraud claim so the Republicans can’t even get their whole party on board with the lie.

    I think people should understand by now that Republicans including much of the voter base don't care about hypocrisy or intellectual dishonesty as long as it can get them power. It almost makes me wish that there were people who employed such tactics to get the "right" policies implemented.

    No Democratic candidate that has put out campaign signs in Animal Crossing has ever lost a presidential election.

    I demand this be the new media talking point for 2024.

    I think his family would try desperately to talk him out of it but I honestly see him ordering the military to stop the electors from voting or something. In his pea-sized brain that means it goes to the House where he ‘wins’ fair and square and everybody jut lives with it.
    This is not a man connected to reality, he’ll at least test the waters in that Trumpian way of his.
