"Every expert is contradicting me, so clearly it's a massive conspiracy and they're all in on it."

Also, dump won't debate because he'd get his ass handed to him, again.

What a loser.

So they interviewed a bunch of people that worked for failed R campaigns and decided that it was the debate that prevented their candidate from winning?

The more that the people saw of him, the more they hated him. Every time he opened his mouth, more of them decided they wanted to vote for the other guy.

The best that they can hope for now is to wait until nobody's watching, so they can sneak him into office in the dead of night through an unlocked basement window.

Well not even that.  They had someone from the Dole campaign, then Cruz, then McCain all complaining about the process.  Sad thing is they'd be asking the same exact people if Democrats tried to pull this stunt and they'd have completely opposite answers.

They also don't want to be resisted. They want to go on Fox and OAN or whatever and say whatever they want and watch the white anchorpeople nod their heads. Debates means people get to disagree with you in real time.

Anyone else read his name as Michael Doorknob?

As Dick Wadhams, a former Colorado Republican Party chair and longtime party strategist, put it, "I don't think God sent down tablets from heaven saying that the debate commission is the final word."

"On the other hand," he said, "any time you get Trump involved with these kinds of things, it gets excessive and it gets out of line."

"There's no doubt in my mind that what Trump would want is basically cheerleaders for him to be the moderator," Wadhams said. "That's not right, either. I think there's some middle ground there that needs to be reached."

The problem right now is that TFG literally refuses to engage with anyone who doesn't take it as a given that the last election was stolen and he's the legitimate winner, and that this is worse crime than the actual attempt at overthrowing the government that culminated in the January 6th insurrection. Full stop. He will instantly cut off any interviewer who tries to correct him or engage with this actual history of what happened.

If the issues are presented with any kind of neutrality or relationship to facts, he comes across looking terrible. He lost the election. He lost all the legal challenges that he made. He was not able to demonstrate fraud in any way, shape, or form. He orchestrated a coup attempt in which he tried to use the noise he made as an excuse to get friendly electors chosen, the actual vote be damned. They tried to overthrow the government. People died. There is no sugar coating it.

So he is not going to show up to a podium where his opponent can tell him "You lost the election and attempted to end American democracy" and he can't just cut the interview short and walk out. He's that allergic to the truth of what happened.

"Institutions say what we don't want them to say so they are all unfair and we won't participate."

Okay. You go ahead and have a tantrum then.
 
2022-01-18 3:42:54 PM  
Oh no, you're not going to come to the debates? Well I am sorry that you feel that way. I am sure the other candidate will be happy to be on our nationally televised program and present their views.
 
2022-01-18 3:45:52 PM  
If you weren't ignorant shiatbags maybe the debates wouldn't seem slanted.

TFG and his brood from 3 different mothers refused to medical precaution rules at the debate held at the Cleveland Clinic.

Also the CCF did nothing to make them follow the rules.

fark em.

Most of  the time, when someone says "everyone's out to get me," we try to find that individual help, because they are experiencing paranoid delusions. What happens when that's a significant portion of the population? Fascism happens. Pogroms happen. And so forth . . .

I think its time to let them pull out and quietly build a 3rd party out of people willing to compromise.

But I guess American politics can only survive binary action, if you added quantum instability of 'maybe' the whole system fall apart!..

Honestly it is the old I think driving all this madness they stole our future poisoned our world made sure we would never earn a living using the tools and equipment that made them their empire that they want to collapse around them as they die because they fear a future where all their sins are laid bare.

I may be a technocratic transhumanist socialist tech priest, but damn it members of the right I don't want your farking money! I just want you to help me break the knees of this asshole trust fund douche from wallstreet who devalued my dad's pension. Can you help me do that first and we'll try to learn to live together with this guy's wallet at the bar after?

To be fair, Joe Biden showed he understood the spirit of the nation with 5 simple words... "Will you shut up, man?" Because we all wanted TFG to just Shut. The Hell. Up.

Typos notwithstanding, take the smart vote. I came here to say this, and I'm surprised it took until the second post.

He didn't take a single opportunity to actually prove his assertion.  He himself does not believe he's been cheated because he makes *zero* effort to demonstrate how.
