The Electoral College vote is a formality. Joe Biden goes into his presidency with something Donald Trump never had: A mandate from the voters.
In a clear-cut election that outgoing president Donald Trump refuses to accept, electors in states cast their ballots across the nation in the next step of bringing a difficult period to a close.
Many of the pro-Trumpers wore garish attire, shouted obscene slogans and vulgar insults at police and bystanders. Trump, of course, applauded their actions.
The president who lost his bid for re-election keeps regurgitating his false claims and outright lies to a base that believes anything he says.
The last minute lawsuit filed with the U.S. Supreme Court is considered the “Hail Mary of all Hail Mary’s” by those who consider it doomed to failure like all the other attempts by Trump to overturn an election where the majority of voters did not want him re-elected.
“What President Trump seeks here is profoundly anti-democratic and unconstitutional.”
He filed so many court cases that judges dismissed while blanching at the ludicrous claims, lack of facts and outright lies from a sore loser who is out of control.
The defeated president may have appointed three of the court’s new justices but they turned to the law to say his attempt to overturn results in Pennsylvania was nothing but a sham.
The reluctance of Senators and House members of the GOP shows the iron grip that defeated Donald Trump still has on the party he has turned into little more than just a tool of his lies and corrupt activites.
