20 days of fantasy and failure: Inside Trump’s quest to overturn the election (473 hits)


20 days of fantasy and failure: Inside Trump’s quest to overturn the election
By Philip Rucker, Ashley Parker, Josh Dawsey and Amy Gardner

The facts were indisputable: President Trump had lost.

But Trump refused to see it that way. Sequestered in the White House and brooding out of public view after his election defeat, rageful and at times delirious in a torrent of private conversations, Trump was, in the telling of one close adviser, like “Mad King George, muttering, ‘I won. I won. I won.’ ”

However cleareyed Trump’s aides may have been about his loss to President-elect Joe Biden, many of them nonetheless indulged their boss and encouraged him to keep fighting with legal appeals. They were “happy to scratch his itch,” this adviser said. “If he thinks he won, it’s like, ‘Shh . . . we won’t tell him.’ ”

Trump campaign pollster John McLaughlin, for instance, discussed with Trump a poll he had conducted after the election that showed Trump with a positive approval rating, a plurality of the country who thought the media had been “unfair and biased against him” and a majority of voters who believed their lives were better than four years earlier, according to two people familiar with the conversation, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations. As expected, Trump lapped it up.

The result was an election aftermath without precedent in U.S. history. With his denial of the outcome, despite a string of courtroom defeats, Trump endangered America’s democracy, threatened to undermine national security and public health, and duped millions of his supporters into believing, perhaps permanently, that Biden was elected illegitimately.

"I need 11000 votes, give me a break. -- Trump"

This man knew he lost that day and you were willing to accept that LIE so much that you are willing to promote that LIE here on Black In America but now the truth is out. Now Steve, you know that TRUMP knew he was the LOSER of The 2020 Presidential Election on that day and then he came back and LIED to you, causing your friends to take Sieg of The U.S. Capital by simply trusting the words of TRUMPS.

Now Steve, did you finally believe the words out of Trump's mouth?

I don't believe hearsay Ron.

Steve Williams
Believe this.

You don't have to believe anybody but your very own ears: 'I only need 11,000 votes': Trump begs GA leaders to 'find' votes https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=i+need+11000+votes&view=detail&mid=AD0DBDCAA88CADBDB0E0AD0DBDCAA88CADBDB0E0&FORM=VIRE


This conversation is about Trump in action, take a listen...

I just want to find 11,780 votes which is one more than we have because we have Won the state. I only need 11000 Votes.

"GIVE ME A BREAK!!!" There is nothing wrong with you saying that you are recalculating. "THAT IS A LIE."

Steve, you don't have to believe hearsay, when you hear the voice of TRUMP'S which you recognize to be his voice.

Now you can cut that BULL 💩 OUT, RIGHT NOW!!! because you are not listening to hearsay unless Trump changed his name, well did he?

I know what Trump meant Ron. "Find" such and such is different from "Invent" such and such.

Wednesday, September 22nd 2021 at 7:15PM
Steve Williams
What The Fluck are you talking Steve? Now you don't believe your own ears? What you hear is Trump asking a Georgia leader to break the law and subvert the will of the people of Georgia, that's what Trump meant by "I just want to find 11,780 votes which is one more than we have because we have Won the state. I only need 11000 Votes."

"GIVE ME A BREAK!!!" There is nothing wrong with you saying that you are recalculating. "THAT IS A LIE."

Steve, Trump knew that NIGHT what the people of The United States had told him "TRUMP YOU ARE FIRED," that he would tell people like you and all of his supporters that "BIG LIE."

Steve, do you believe that FACT?

Wednesday, September 22nd 2021 at 7:49PM
Deacon Ron Gray
Ron, which of these definitions did Trump mean when he said 'find'? I say it's number 2.

1. To come upon, often by accident; meet with.
2. To come upon or discover by searching or making an effort.
3. To discover or ascertain through observation, experience, or study.

If Brad Raffensperger had made an effort, he would have discovered 11,780 votes for Trump.

Wednesday, September 22nd 2021 at 10:07PM
Steve Williams
I may add a fourth one: 4. To fabricate out of thin air to subvert the will of the people.

Brad Raffensperger did make an effort, to tell Trump that his information was WRONG and he did the right thing by following election law.

Steve, Trump knew he had lost Georgia when he made the call begging Brad Raffensperger to find some 11.000 votes but yet he had you to believe that The 2020 presidential elections was Stolen from him, without any evidence, you believe that LIE, WHY?




Wednesday, September 22nd 2021 at 11:07PM
Deacon Ron Gray
Ron, your definition #4 is a fabrication. Do you know the defintion for that?

Wednesday, September 22nd 2021 at 11:31PM
Steve Williams
YES… That means to LIE like TRUMP DID, to keep it simple.

Steve, do you still believe Trump when he said that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him, Don’t you?


Thursday, September 23rd 2021 at 12:05AM
Deacon Ron Gray
If Trump had wanted Raffensperger to fabricate votes he would have said, "just FABRICATE 11,780 votes for me."

Thursday, September 23rd 2021 at 12:12AM
Steve Williams
I do believe I asked you a question Steve. Steve, do you still believe Trump when he said that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him, Don’t you?

Deacon Ron Gray
How many times have you asked me that question Ron?

Thursday, September 23rd 2021 at 12:24AM
Steve Williams
Until you give me a YES or NO to this question: "Steve, do you still believe Trump when he said that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him, Don’t you even after reading this article?

Why should we care about a 305 day-old report by Ashley Parker and Phil (Toadie) Rucker?

Friday, September 24th 2021 at 1:59AM
Steve Williams
Yes and that is the reason why I want to share this information to you Steve. Now go and read this article and then answer this question:

"Steve, do you still believe Trump when he said that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him, after reading this article?




Friday, September 24th 2021 at 8:12AM
Deacon Ron Gray
I believe Trump even more after reading the article.

Friday, September 24th 2021 at 10:41AM
Steve Williams
Why do you believe Trump even more now after reading the article, Steve?

Now keep in mind, this is a report from Trump’s hand picked trusted Cabinet members and trusted aids are saying things like this: “ However cleareyed Trump’s aides may have been about his loss to President-elect Joe Biden, many of them nonetheless indulged their boss and encouraged him to keep fighting with legal appeals. They were “happy to scratch his itch,” this adviser said. “If he thinks he won, it’s like, ‘Shh . . . we won’t tell him.’ ”

It's useful to go back to those 20 days to see how the left wing media spun up their fake election stories. Didn't you watch the video at your link Ron? The 20 days are from Election Day to the time Trump allowed the transfer of power to proceed. You forgot about that period didn't you Ron. Watching that video confirmed what I've always known, the election was stolen from Trump. And now we have the results from Arizona and the evidence for decertification of the 2020 election is piling up. Even conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow can't stop it.

Arizona GOP's private recount of 2020 election confirms Biden's win

In an odd coda to the 2020 election, private contractors conducting a GOP-commissioned recount in Arizona confirmed President Biden’s win in Maricopa County.

Why it matters: The unofficial, party-driven recount has been heavily covered on cable news as part of former President Trump's continued effort to sow doubt about the election result.

The findings: "The auditor’s final hand count—which quadruple-checked every single one of the 2.1 million ballots—matches Maricopa County’s official machine count," Arizona Senate President Karen Fann (R) wrote in a letter to Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich on Friday.

After this report was complete this GOIP report found that Biden has won by 87 more votes over TRUMP.

That the last 20 days of Trump losing power, a lot of his cabinet and handpick personal aids was concerned that TRUMP had lost it because he could not believe that The People of The United States of America told TRUMP to give up that office because TRUMP was FIRED by the people.

Now Maricopa County is over and the count found the Joe Biden won and they also found 87 more votes for Biden.

Steve, when did you find out that TRUMP LIED to you about The 2020 Presidential Election was stolen from him?

The count was the same but there was much corruption found behind the count, in the administration of the election, most notably in the destruction of records, crimes under both Federal and State law. These findings have been referred to the AG for criminal investigation. Other findings showed the total unreliability of Arizona's signature matching protocol. There will be many changes in Arizona and far beyond, across the nation. You have no idea Ron.

What I do know is you have been ducking this question: Steve, when did you find out that TRUMP LIED to you about The 2020 Presidential Election was stolen from him?

You think the count matches Ron? Guess what, the count doesn't account for the discarded ballots.
