U.S. Election 2020 #1

The people voted. A record number of mail-in ballots were used, many spurred by the ongoing pandemic. The Electoral College voted with Joe Biden beating Donald Trump 306-232. Vocal, super-loyalist ‘Trump won no matter what” supporters allege the election was rigged by Democrats and stolen from Trump. Success in proving that enough for Trump to win has been very weak.

Unsurprisingly, President Trump has been most vocal about a fraudulent vote. He even said he should have won because he got more popular votes than anybody in history. How many popular votes did Biden get? Blank out.

Unsurprisingly, Trump takes maximum credit for himself related to the pandemic such as the rapid development of vaccines, while deflecting any personal blame for the pandemic. He said if anybody but him were President -- "according to almost everybody, even the enemy" -- it would have taken at least 5 years to develop the vaccines (link). LOL. 😁  Raising his hand and pointing up, he shows his eagerness to say something well before the reporter pauses talking.  

Congress will meet January 6, 2021 about accepting or rejecting the Electoral College vote. It will be very, very newsworthy and noisier than a New Years Eve party in 1999.
