So you're both saying that there was literally nothing in his power he could do to win? Almost makes you feel sorry for the guy

Not at all. I hear all this noise saying "Trump would have won if..." and list these impossible conditions that he never would have done anyway.

I don't even think Trump believes it was rigged tbh

But wouldn’t that require him to accept the fact that a majority of people in the country don’t like him?

I think a lot of the talk is already factoring that in

saying trump would've won if not for covid means that there's only one possible way for trump to behave during a pandemic crisis, and if the pandemic hadn't happened he would've skated to victory


trump would've won if not for forces of nature compelling him to act in a way that caused voters to not vote for him

If not for covid, dems would not have made a call to arms for mail in voting and blue shirts would not have shown up to the polls.

Just watched Rudy make his case. It wasn't very convincing and mostly about the issues discussed earlier, Republican election watchers denied access.
Those computer glitches seem more worrying and in some cases proven but 3000 votes here or there isn't going to change the overall outcome and most of it seems to have been corrected by now.

Biden won it much like Trump, with relatively small margins in a number of important states.
It was closer than people expected and Trump ran up his numbers among African Americans, Latino's and other minorities.
In all fairness the conservatives should be happy with their result likely taking Ohio and Florida from the swing state board and holding onto the senate.
Wisconsin and Michigan were always an uphill battle, traditionally 'blue wall' states that Trump took because Clinton didn't appeal to those people.

Trump likely would've won if he started wearing masks in February and kept the COVID response going as he did at the start (closing borders, building military hospitals etc.) and keeping the stimulus going.
If you look at Macron and a bunch of other world leaders it is clear that Trump's working class 'forgotten men and women' appeal had an effect on world politics for generations to come.
He was just always the odd choice to see it through and drifted further and further away from reality in the White House bubble.

Its still insane that without covid he would have won easily
Probably, but also if his COVID response was better. A lot of countries have this 'rally around the flag' moment for COVID.
But Trump didn't see it, or rather the people who he put in charge of COVID. I think that's also a reason why he lost. Trump might be popular but Kushner and Pence aren't.

Biden didn’t win it like trump at all? His popular vote margin was actually quite large. It came down to 5 or so key states because our system is dumb, but the margins were not all that close

Man this piece about the campaign is absolutely fantastic
https://www.politico.com/news/2020/11/07/this-f-ing-virus-inside-donald-trumps-2020-undoing-434716
Quote
Biden’s team marveled at something else: how Trump failed to come up with a comprehensive strategy to attack the virus. This was a moment that needed a gesture like George W. Bush’s megaphone on the rubble in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, advisers mused with Biden, and Trump was whiffing it.
Quote
Trump privately complained to allies that Biden was outspending him on television. McDaniel told him it was a problem he was dark in her home state of Michigan. The president didn’t like the recurring stories about how he wasn’t on TV because his campaign was running out of money.
Quote
Senior campaign officials, meanwhile, had been getting reports that Guilfoyle had been berating her staff. Appearing together at fundraisers, Guilfoyle and her boyfriend, Donald Trump Jr., would banter in sexually suggestive ways that made some donors uncomfortable.
During a December donor event at Trump Hotel in Washington, Guilfoyle offered to give a lap dance to whoever raised the most money, according to two people who were present and another person who was familiar with the episode.
Quote
And at an event in Jackson Hole, Wyo. earlier this year, Guilfoyle and the younger Trump joked about how she raised money while in hot tubs.
Quote
“The St. John’s moment was a low moment for any Republican president,” said Bryan Lanza, a former Trump adviser. It was intended as “a George W. Bush moment at the Twin Towers,” Lanza added, but “it just didn’t unfold that way.”
Quote
“The most fucked moment of the last 30 days was how everyone felt during the first debate. Why did Trump yell at Joe Biden for 90 minutes straight? No one knows. That was one of the worst debate performances you could have in a general election,” a senior Trump adviser said.

i was impressed throughout the campaign at how bad at just being donald trump donald trump actually was.

give any machievellian personality doctor with a half decent understanding of the human condition control over his public appearences and they could've easily reconfigured trump into something far more electable and ultimately dangerous, despite the absolute balls up he's made of so many things in office. it wouldn't even take some grand pivot, just some empty gestures of personal growth and humility after being the in job for four years.

america should be thankful that he's as thick as he is.

But the hotline has turned into a nightmare for some, as staffers, some of whom have contracts that expire in the coming days, have been bombarded with prank calls from people laughing or mocking them over Biden's win before hanging up, sources tell ABC News. Prank calling the Trump campaign's hotline has already become a trend on TikTok, the social media network that was used earlier in the year in an attempt to tank the president's rally in Tulsa by mass-requesting tickets.


Quote
according to the fine print on the donations page, 60% of the funds raised will go to paying down the campaign's debt.

• Senior campaign and GOP officials vented that Trump’s finance team, led by former Fox TV host and Donald Trump Jr. girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, underperformed and was an HR nightmare. Trump couldn’t compete with Biden’s small-dollar fundraising machine, and some donors were horrified by what they described as Guilfoyle’s lack of professionalism: She frequently joked about her sex life and, at one fundraiser, offered a lap dance to the donor who gave the most money.

On my Facebook it’s a lot about how “look we republicans aren’t rioting”. Which always makes me wonder what these people would think during the Civil Rights movement. But it’s also like yeah there were riots because people are angry about whats going on in the country. They felt powerless in how to make that know and change it(probably thanks to Trump and his admin). So they took to the streets. You then get lots of people in one place where emotions are running high and then you create even  more tension by having things like police(the thing people are angry at) show up there may be some violence. And then while those emotions hold high and the day goes by you may have some people that make some bad choices.

But is the answer to just demonize them and not attempt to understand what is leading to this? This was my number reason I wanted Trump out because during all these race issues in America he time and time proved he was not capable of being a leader and willing to have dialogue about these issues. Instead doubling down and basically calling these people terrorist. It’s why when I see those “back the blue” things I just assume the person is a racist. I see that flag or sign and it just reads “shut up minorities” to me. I see closed minded people unwilling to admit there are problems in this country that need addressing. Acting like there isn’t or labeling the people who are saying there are is socialist or bastards or whatever is not going to go anywhere. I’m not sure Biden is going to be that leader, but at least he seems aware of the problems. At least maybe he’ll have a dialogue about it.

Quote
The adviser asked if he was trying to say that votes cast illegally (something that happens rarely, despite Trump’s claims) should not be counted. “He said, ‘Yeah, yeah. That’s what I mean.’ ” People knew that by “stop the count,” he didn’t mean to literally stop the count, Trump said. “No,” the adviser told him, “people think you mean stop counting. If they stopped counting, you’d lose because you’re behind.” Oh.

Quote
Jared Kushner, said he was looking for a James Baker–type figure. Instead, they got Rudy Giuliani, Pam Bondi, Corey Lewandowski, and Dave Bossie. “That’s not a legal team,” one of the president’s friends told me. “It’s all so bizarre.”

Quote
“He wants to lose. He’s out of money. He worries about being arrested. He worried about being assassinated,” they said. “It hasn’t been a great experience for him. He likes showing people around the White House, but the actual day-to-day business of being president? It’s been pretty unpleasant for him.”

Quote
“He’s afraid. He’s the most insecure, afraid person ever. He’s too afraid to be president. He’s afraid to exercise power. He’s afraid to do the job. It’s why he’s overbearing and crazy — he sabotages himself constantly because he hates himself and wants out. He’s always trying to hurt himself. That guy commits more self-harm than anyone I’ve ever encountered.”

Quote
“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened,” a former White House official told me. “Live. Laugh. Love.” This person added, “Sometimes you own the libs; sometimes the libs own you.”

I've been following some right wing guys on twitter, including a data/poll guy. His argument is that Trump needs to win AZ, which apparently has 0% fraud for some reason (no black people?). Then the courts will hand him PA and GA, thus getting him to 270.

As of right now Biden is still on pace to win AZ. The ballots under scrutiny in PA were not included in Biden's total; the PA Sec of State asked that they be separated to avoid any confusion. And of course it would take massive fraud for GA's total to change. In short, this is all bullshit and will be resolved soon.

The best way to sum up the current state of the Trump administration is that they accidentally booked the parking lot of Four Seasons Total Landscaping instead of the Four Seasons Hotel and not only went through with their press conference next to an adult book store and a cremation center but are still defending their choice of venue and promoting it.
