If Biden does win, I'm curious what he does for an inauguration. All things considered, a small ceremony without a crowd would be the responsible thing to do and set a good example.

There will be a humongous crowd there, specifically to spite Trump. And nearly everyone will be wearing masks and maintaining good social distancing, just as they were during the BLM protests.

To say nothing of the worldwide celebrations.

But there's still the traveling of those people to get there, facilities, food, etc.

I know everyone would want to make a big show of it to demonstrate to Trump how happy we are to have him gone, but I really think a good example is more worthwhile than a celebration.

Everything that's left. Plus as much as lenders will give the campaign company in credit lines (because he's good for it, snert).

Then there's the RNC's spare cash.

And then there's the legal defense and recount funds that will be jam-packed with dark money.

I'd like  to go to the local Covid wards and as part of getting tested you'll be asked to blow up a balloon. We can record the test results and cross reference them to the balloons. When Trump wins West Virginia we'll drop a few balloon and all of the celebrants can try to pop them with a pin. We'll drop more balloons for every State Trump takes. Super fun. Invite all of the GOP Senators.

Worth the price of admission to be there if Trump loses, but not worth catching Covid.
 
2020-10-27 3:38:09 AM  
Whatever, I hope he does have a massive party and all the relevant sh*terati are there, and they all catch the virus, and Republicans up and down the ticket get schlonged, and a crowd of masked people form outside and just keep chanting 'loser, loser' over and over again. The growing chorus wafts inside, at first imperceptible, except for a little tick of annoyance detectable on Trump's face, but as it grows to a cacophony, every camera in the room turns to the Trump family and the rest of the GOP and records their fear and pain. If some of the covidiots inside get sick and die, well, it is what it is. Nothing of value would be lost but may we all see a never ending repeat of the glorious scene played out live on TV.

Mirror Trump.

"Due to the risk of the Coronavirus, I have decided to have the smallest inauguration possible. However I will politely ask that television networks carry the ceremony, which will not be long nor be pompous, so the American people can witness the peaceful transition of power. I need no pomp and circumstance, especially in these difficult times. I will be donating the money that has been given to my inaugural committee to food banks and other charities to help as many people as possible in this great country that need help. I do this not simply to set an example, but in deference to the hundreds of thousands of Americans that have died due to this plague. Hopefully soon, America can return to norma but until then I am in this fight with you. God bless the American people, and God bless America."

It'll be the last public appearance of Melania that's for sure. It wouldn't surprise me at all that her bags (and Barron's) will be packed and she'll be out of the WH a few hours after the race is called.

Hell yes. "I had a tiny inauguration ceremony, because that was the responsible thing to do." Plays right into the narrative, and makes Trump look small. Which isn't really a hard thing to do.

Would love to see trump afterwards bragging about his crowd size compared to Biden's. It's like that drunk asshole who thinks drunksplaining why he was an asshole just now was totally justified, but in reality just further cements himself as a drunk asshole.

Truthout

If Pence has become infected due to Trump's deliberate negligence, we may see Trump dragging the sick or dead body of his vice president across the finish line as he shrieks, "They're fine, everything's fine, rounding the turn!"

'Mirror' Trump... yup, sounds a fark of a lot more like what Biden will say to be honest...  so 'mirror' definitely applies.
 
2020-10-27 6:50:21 AM  
He is planning on holding an event for what?  To celebrate his win?!

Not even Trump can be so dense as to think he is actually winning this thing.  I guess he is planning on declaring victory on election night even though there won't be a victory.

The votes won't have been counted.
The votes that ARE counted will show Biden winning.
And he will somehow spin this to his crown of asslicking followers that he is poised to win?

Again, not even Trump is that dense.

Which is actually kind of frightening.  It's almost like he is planning on pulling a stunt on election day that no one will see coming.  And I don't know what that could be.

Farkers, People will come Farkers.  They'll come to D.C. for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn down Pennsylvania Avenue, not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at his hotel, as rabid as wild dogs, longing for red meat. "Of course, we won't mind if you join us," they'll say, "It's only twenty thousand dollars per person." And they'll pass over the money without even thinking about it, for it is money they have and power they lack. And they'll walk off to the shrimp table and bask in their silk lined suits on a dark evening. And find they have reserved seats somewhere near the front row where they sat with their fathers when they were children. And cheered the fascists. And they'll watch the results, and it'll be as they'd dipped themselves in the blood of innocents. The memories will be so thick, they'll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come, Farkers. The one constant through all the years Farkers, has been evil. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It's been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But the lust for power has marked the time. This campaign, this election, is a part of our past, Farkers. It reminds us of all the evil that lives among us, and that could rise again. Oh people will come, Farkers. People will most definitely come.

Reliable rumors say it's going to be in Wilmington, DE at the Chase Center (decent sized convention center on the outskirts of Wilmington). For Wilmington it's a better neighborhood, but that's a very low bar. It's also relatively easy to isolate from a security standpoint due to its geography.

I can't cite my source here for this, but I can say if you want to look into this, look for hotel rooms at major chains in Wilmington on November 3rd.
