There are opps to try to get Trump to do the right thing and concede. 😂

Trump’s fans are using his strategies of force to gain compliance: intimidation at the polls & in the streets, fascist flag flotillas & parades, bullhorns & foghorns, shutting down roadways & bridges & forcing Biden’s bus off the road. They are not trying to persuade.

Biden's speech: he's confident he will win, confident in American democracy, and confident in American values. Presidential.

Look, again, you gotta hand it to the 2020 writers. Trump was about to have a press conference at a random landscaping joint next to a sex shop when the news broke that he'd lost the election. And the news crews scattered to cover the real story. 😂

"Totalitarian governments and their leaders are “infallible.” To question their policies is sin. As soon as complete power is obtained, the monopoly over all instrumentalities of communication gives unlimited propaganda possibilities to the totalitarian.” Sigmund Neumann, 1938
