    In Denmark we have an old saying, that perfectly encompass the Trump administration, and it goes: A thief thinks every man steals. Edit: I just want to point out that i never said that the Danes came up with this saying, just that we have it... it actually warms my heart to see so many different versions of the same saying all around the world. Makes me think we are all more alike, despite colour, creed or place of origin. Also @Accolade Awarded I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my views more in depth.

    Why are you so shocked and upset? It seems congress has been using any possible technique to thwart the other parties agenda, using options that almost never get used and even just plain not showing up to vote on something. Anything Trump is doing is just more of the same. And you can whine all you want about the Trump fraud claims, but if he can keep the election uncertified, Biden might take it in the ass.

    What do you think the chances are that Biden significantly escalates major conflict with North Korea? Say what you will about Trump, at least he was successful in getting a cordial meeting with Kim Jong Un as Kim respect him, Kim also stopped doing missile tests after that meeting if I'm not mistaken. Something Obama wasn't able to do. Kim is now on record calling Biden a fool, showing that he doesn't respect Biden nearly as much as does Trump. Could this indicate that he would be more comfortable making a move against the US under Biden's presidency?

    If Trump pardons himself, then how many crimes will he be confessing to get pardoned? You can’t do 1 pardon for everything. It would be easy to pardon yourself if you only did one crime, but Trump did many.

    "That's what the Second Amendment is for"? To kill election officials and ballot counters? This is the sort of detachment from reality that America will have to deal with for a very long time. Not-so-idle threats on the lives of people just doing their jobs according to the letter, and routine harassment by people who have nothing else going on in their lives. As much loathing as I have for the Republican Party as a whole, at least these election officials performed their jobs accordingly and with dignity. Shows the gulf dividing those that once stood for the simple notions of small government and lower taxes, from the "take names and kick ass" goons who can't fathom why they lost. But as much as we make fun of them for their pointless screaming and contradictory and backwards attitudes, they are not toothless, either. Death threats are being made against political activists and grassroots organizers as well, and there's a new rally being promoted online for another pro-Trump march two days before the electors meet to finalize the election for Biden's win. If they can't be the victors, they'll settle for the violent opposition.
