    If anybody sees comments talkin about them questioning asking questions about the election results just report them... the reason to have dialogue with them they're not asking questions they're making statements... statements which are bald-faced lies...also if anybody purports to be just asking questions about covid 19 they need to be reported as well... they're not asking questions again they're spreading lies.... unsolicited this point people still doing that are just harassing everyone... it's 100% obvious who the cynical cowards are in this country and they need to be avoided and shunned like the plague... as long as they are in that mindset they are not anyone's friend

    If we want the country to even exist as the United States we can never ever allow these fascists to gain power again... it's that simple if they do we're finished.. if they want to leave and be separatist we should let them... the Republicans are literally the new Confederacy... we cannot let them take us down like that.. probably safer just to let them go their own way.. definitely not a group that we can afford to negotiate with anymore..

    The Biden presidency hasn’t been smooth so far I know it’s only 4 months in, but he called trump a dictator and said only a dictator ruled by executive order, and then immediately signed the most executive orders in US history so I guess he is the dictator and it was actually a warning and one of them over turned trumps insulin and epiPen plan so now insulin went from $60 to $600 and no one can afford it anymore. I’ve seen countless videos of people crying saying they can’t treat their diabetes anymore so thanks for that.

    I'm glad Biden won but it's very strange that voter fraud was a huge issue right up until this election.. from what I remember there was no ensure voting in the US was secure because there was no investment in voting machines and each state can collect votes however it likes

    Why would anyone even use dead people to vote? If you have a list of people why not just use living people who didn't vote by mailing in blank ballots and then writing the names of living people on them afterwards. Of course that plan could be hard for morons to remember and say so...

And my last question, do you feel stupid for believing YOUR FAKE NEWS? Sorry I've been arguing with them since the election trying to explain the TRUTH! They didn't want to hear it, so of course, they wouldn't believe it. I don't feel sorry for any of them! I can't help but laugh at these idiots!

    I really wish Twitter hadn't put the "disputed claim" tag on all of Trump's tweets. It doesn't matter the truth of the content, adding that tag told people on Trump's side that "Twitter's against us now," and I highly doubt a single mind was changed. It would be better to do no damage control than selective damage control in front of a very large angry mob, one consisting primarily of people who doubt your credibility.

    After rewatching this video, Trump and the GOP’s plan was to sow discord in order to push through almost 250 bills in 43 states to restrict voter access under the guise of preventing voter fraud. The US has a horrible short term memory.

    I love watching Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. This guy's always on point and does the best job at getting as much humor out of it as humanly possible. He's even funnier than Trevor Noah who I'm also a fan of. I'm very happy to watch Oliver call it for exactly what it is. A fraudulent attempt by Trump to try and change the truth that he lost. So much bullshit coming from Trump's corner with all of his supporters blindly following him into the abyss of lies that he seems to have no end to. Donald Trump's America is one that promotes racism and division between everyone. If it wasn't black and white people it would be males and females. Just as long as he can create some sort of division. He doesn't care about the country or how much damage and deaths are caused by covid-19. Neither do any of his supporters because if they did they would step away from the Trump administration's lies and deceit.
