It’s 2022 and Trump Is Demanding an ‘Immediate’ Redo of the 2020 Election – Rolling Stone

So now it comes out, conclusively, that the FBI BURIED THE HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY BEFORE THE ELECTION knowing that, if they didn't, "Trump would have easily won the 2020 Presidential Election." This is massive FRAUD & ELECTION INTERFERENCE at a level never seen before in our Country. REMEDY: Declare the rightful winner or, and this would be the minimal solution, declare the 2020 Election irreparably compromised and have a new Election, immediately!
He ought to read the Constitution and look for any part of it that permits such an election.

Back to the article.
Trump is currently facing a gauntlet of legal troubles, most notably the Justice Department’s investigation into the classified documents he hoarded at Mar-a-Lago and whether he may have violated the Espionage Act. Rolling Stone reported in July that Trump has been telling people he needs to get back into the White House to save himself from various criminal probes.

Trump Tells Team He Needs to Be President Again to Save Himself from Criminal Probes – Rolling Stone
When Donald Trump formally declares his 2024 candidacy, he won’t just be running for another term in the White House. He’ll be running away from legal troubles, possible criminal charges, and even the specter of prison time.

In recent months, Trump has made clear to associates that the legal protections of occupying the Oval Office are front-of-mind for him, four people with knowledge of the situation tell Rolling Stone.

Trump has “spoken about how when you are the president of the United States, it is tough for politically motivated prosecutors to ‘get to you,” says one of the sources, who has discussed the issue with Trump this summer. “He says when [not if] he is president again, a new Republican administration will put a stop to the [Justice Department] investigation that he views as the Biden administration working to hit him with criminal charges — or even put him and his people in prison.”
So he hopes to obstruct efforts to bring him to justice long enough for him to be re-elected President, it seems.

As the secret document fiasco unwinds, the chances of Von Clownstick's re-election fades. Only the most stupid right wing fanatics would vote for this moron.

Just wondering aloud...

Why would we need to "redo" the election if he's just "declared" the winner?

Ah...now that I've read the fake Tweet that ...fake Twitler? ...wrote on his social media site that has fewer members than MySpace currently has*, that he wants to be declared the winner immediately and IF that doesn't work, the bare minimum we should do is re-run the election so he can have another shot at it. Because he's so much more popular now.

*I looked it up after I came up with that dig, and it's true. While MySpace is more of a music promotion site, it had - as of 2019 - around 7 million monthly visits. "Truth Social" (or should I put air quotes around both words individually because neither are accurate?) has a little over 500,000 active daily users, and if we're being generous and actually believe Trump, 3.9 million followers. Why would a guy whose website has fewer users than fucking MySpace think he can win an election he already lost? It's a mystery, to be sure...#sarcasm

Maybe, or maybe it is part of his ongoing grift effort.

Both.
There is enough division within the republican ranks that nominating Orange Goon is just not going to happen. It's all about the money for the Goon of Mar a Lago. Of course if Goon thinks there is more money to be made by declaring its candidacy it will do that. At this point, however, that is not Goon's plan.

We have moved into the time when Trump apologists are using the same arguments as theists.

I cannot wait for the presuppositionalist position. "You all know if your hear that Trump is really the president, you are just denying it"

Mark my words, it is coming.

"I got to know a lot of the foreign leaders and unlike our leader, they're at the top of their game. These are like central casting. There's nobody that could play the role in Hollywood—all of Hollywood, nobody could play the role of President Xi of China...He's a fierce person," the ex-president said.

"Putin, fierce—they're smart. You know a lot of times I'll say somebody's smart and the fake news will go 'He called President Xi smart.' He rules with an iron fist 1.5 billion people, yeah I'd say he's smart," Trump then added.

He'll almost certainly get the nomination if he goes after it--unless he is convicted beforehand of some crime that includes disbarment fom holding elected office.

And if he is blocked from the ballot they're trying to get write-in votes. (Or at least that's what the e-mail said. It very well might have lead to fundraising, though...)

Oh, let's help with the write-in campaign! It's certainly not going to bleed off any Dem votes.
Hopefully, the GQP selects someone else, Dolt45 decides to mount an attack on them for rejecting him and they fade into well-deserved political oblivion.

what makes anyone think that he has the slightest chance? He lost the election. He lost supporters since then. He gained not one vote from anyone, anywhere... he will, without the slightest question, do far worse this time than last. Where is my logic broken?

The RNC will not back him - they also know he can't win - proven so. If he runs, it will be as an independent or a new party

fundraising is literally the only reason anyone is calling to "build the wall" or "stop the steal"... a quarter of a billion dollars is out there for the grabs from easily manipulated, uneducated "deplorables".
