    The allegations of, "voter fraud" are meaningless. Even the majority of Republicans admit that if it can be proven, it will be on far too small a scale to change the result of the election. The Supreme Court isn't getting involved. Trump cannot win.

    But can he ensure that Biden still loses?

    Trump is still President for two months. Which means he officially still controls the most powerful military on earth. He's already started replacing senior Pentagon officials with men who are loyal to him.

    Donald Trump puts ultra-loyalists in top jobs after Pentagon purge | Daily Mail Online

    So my question is: can Trump somehow take military action against, say, Iran that escalates into open warfare? Thus leaving Biden with a huge mess to clear up? This is what the Israelis, when discussing their Nuclear weapons, call The Samson Option: if you know you're going to lose, bring down the temple on your enemies' heads and take them with you. Of course, this would incredibly, dangerously, irresponsible and have massive implications on a global scale. But this is Donald J Trump we're talking about...

    As far as I know, the entire US political system is set up precisely to limit the power of the POTUS, just in case he does indeed go Full Retard. Does Trump need the permission of the Senate to order military action against a country like Iran? Or should I grab a shovel and start building my fall out shelter now?;)

    Just the fact that Russia and China refuse to acknowledge US president tells you how much damage this moron has done to US democracy. If this case drags out the damage would be irreparable.

    Putin and Xi would love Trump to have his 2nd term. Trump is a paper tiger.

    Trump has no power and is just a puppet.
    Biden and Trump are best friends behind the scenes and serve the same master.

    This is why these people are indoctrinated so easily, they barely have two brain cells to rub together.

    Republicans are still raw about it right now. Which is understandable, and would be the case if it went the other way. Both parties ran on hate. When the election is over, the hate is still there.

    People will calm down though. Already 30% of Republicans don't think the election was rigged. Once Trumps lawsuits are laughed out of court, that % will go up. It will continue to go up as people process the anger and disappointment of the loss.

    It'll be fine.

    I’m thinking Trump is going to take military action against the Dems...he’s going to hunt Sleepy Joe down the same way Bush hunted down Saddam..

    They saved billions over the past 4 years as Trump did the work for them.
