While the increase of direct payments to $2,000 per person could pass the House, it is certain to die in the Senate. An angry Congress, however, is also certain to override Trump’s veto on the defense policy bill, another rebuke for the lame-duck president.
His despicable behavior since losing the Nov. 3 presidential election is the final proof that he never deserved to be president and he should be removed forcibly from the White House on Jan. 20 if he continues to resist. Losers do not deserve to live there.
In a divided America, both sides wonder what it will take. Some say this nation will find a way. Others say it is too late.
If you can’t win an election from the voters, find ways to keep voters who oppose you from casting ballots. It may not serve democracy, but it does serve the Republican agenda.
Some say having a member of Congress or a president-elect or a mayor getting a shot early showcases the safety of the vaccine. Others say it is just another example of catering to the rich and powerful.
The Attorney General who had had Trump’s back on so many instances now seems like one who has had enough of the defeated president’s bluster and lies.
As expected, aides — even those who leave knowing they served a failing and fallen president — mix adulation for the ego-driven president who still won’t admit defeat.
Trump continues to claim he won the election but the democratic process, while under constant fire by an autocratic wannabe, held and bestowed the final win to President-elect Joe Biden.
As usual, Trump lied. He had claimed that the Electoral College vote would allow him to accept the results of an election he lost, but he turned to Twitter to claim Biden lost while he, and only he, won.
The president-elect, who won more votes in Georgia Nov. 3 than any other candidate on the ballot, hopes to put that support to work to put two more Democrats into the U.S. Senate.
