At what margin of electoral defeat will Trump be forced to admit defeat?

I wasn't aware there were any conservatives on this board.

No Biden, no KKK, no Fascist USA
The word "know" has one silent k.
The word "knuckle" has two silent k's.
The word "Democrat" has three silent k's.

What do you call your ilk?
It is fun seeing you pretend that you don't know how I define myself.

I'm afraid that you over-estimate my attention to you.

And yet almost every time you reply to me you quote my signature instead of my post.

White privilege is being a lifelong racist, then being sent to the White House twice because your running mate is a minority.

No Biden, no KKK, no Fascist USA

The word "know" has one silent k.
The word "knuckle" has two silent k's.
The word "Democrat" has three silent k's.

I think there is an option allowing users to disable the display of others' signatures. I give those Infidels the opportunity to enjoy your sig also.

Protestors entering the Capitol Building and the Trump team filing lawsuits over the outcomes of some of the states is not a coup. He left office on time, exactly like Elixir predicted he wouldn't.

This thread isn't about leaving office, it is about admitting defeat, which Trump still hasn't done. When was it that you predicted he would accept defeat again?

It wasn't about Trump saying "yes Biden won." If Elixir was right about Elixir's prediction, Trump would be sitting in the White House right now ordering the military to round up the remaining Biden supporters for "re-education."
And right now, we are learning that the Justice Department (as in most of it) was effectively threatening to resign to keep Trump from appointing an acting Attorney General to meddle with the election results.
What gets me is that so many people knew of these illegal plans before hand yet told no one. There are no heroes in this comic book.
Yep.

The DOJ knew he was pushing an illegal scheme. His lawyer (Eastman) knew the plan was illegal, but pushed it anyway. Multiple members of Congress were down with it even though they knew it was illegal (as evidenced by their asking for pardons ahead of time), and of course Mike Pence knew it was illegal. I wonder how much of the next 2 years the current DOJ will spend on prosecuting this obviously criminal conspiracy?

One thing that did cross my mind (as I was listening to a story on public radio about Ron DeSantis just now)...we don't have to worry about an inside plot like this in '24. State shenanigans? Yes, but whether it is Trump or DeSantis on the GOP ticket 2 years from now, they won't have the power to use the DOJ or White House to try and overturn things if they lose. If DeSantis wins the nomination and Trump throws a hissy fit, that might hurt his chances enough (depending on who the Democrats run), but the really troubling thing is that if he wins, we have (as the reporter said) "Trump with a brain" in office, and a huge opportunity to try the coup again in '28. We know DeSantis is smarter than Trump by a long shot, but is he crooked enough to throw an election he clearly lost?

I think De Santis has very little chance of winning. #1 reason: He's not Donald Trump.

He's a competent political version of Donald Trump. His Covid-19 policies helped Florida be near the pack in deaths over Covid, and he is a political hero. Fear the fuck out of De Santis.
