Good! It’s finally over.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Feelin fine!

canidmajor's avatar

Cynical. I anticipate a lot of costly disputing, and damage being done by the WH from pure spite in the next two months.
I’ll feel guardedly relieved on January 21.

jca2's avatar

That’s exactly how I feel, @canidmajor. I’m happy and relieved but know that Trump is going to pull out all the stops and pull all kinds of shit. He’s the tenant who is going to urinate in the corner to be spiteful before vacating the apartment.

Dutchess_III's avatar

@jca2…but he’s gotta get out of Dodge, man!

Give me Lone Star Beer, and Bob Wills music, to help me get those Trump years off my mind!!!

That’s MADAM Vice President!

I am relieved too.

God. It’s over. It’s finally over. We did it.

And may I have your hand for a quick victory dance, Ms. Dutch? Then I’m off to bed. Don’t even mind having to work tonight I feel soooo good.

Lots of work to be done.

On the news they showed a video from NYC and the buildings were screaming. A friend on FB lives in the Bronx and she said everyone was yelling with happiness.

It’s going to be a happy Saturday for many and a miserable sad Saturday for many.

Aster's avatar

I’m sad. Bring on the Boredom . I’ll miss Trump and I do hope he doesnt humiliate Melania and Americans by having to be evicted. Yep; I heard he may have to be dragged out.

Nomore_lockout's avatar

@Aster The Military can handle that.

Demosthenes's avatar

Still apprehensive. There could still be unrest. Not putting it past this nation.

Aster's avatar

Sure there will be “unrest” with Trump pledging to have his lawyers on the decision starting Monday. omg

Dutchess_III's avatar

I have been praying for this day since 2016.
I bet it’s wild in NYC! Everybody there hates him.
We’ll head out later and take the pulse of Midway Farmer Towns.

Nomore_lockout's avatar

A great day for America. I’m sure Putin and Pillsbury Doughboy are crying in their beer. Or vodka.

Aster's avatar

We can take all the boards off the storefronts. The morons will have nothing to do now.

Hope the same thing (removal) happens to Pelosi and soon !

zenvelo's avatar

@Aster That’s Madam Speaker and Madam Vice President.

Aster's avatar

She acts like a Madam alright. So crude and vindictive. Gag!
I am super curious to see if the violence and looting stop now. That would say a lot.

jca2's avatar

I don’t get why Nancy Pelosi is hated by so many, @Aster.

Good; that’s a step in the right direction.

Oh, you’ll be bored. Clearly your entertainment is the most important thing here.

Aster's avatar

Thank you! I agree. (;

Nomore_lockout's avatar

You can be sure there will be plenty of entertainment if Trump really does refuse to concede.

Nomore_lockout's avatar

I’m surprised that this hasn’t received more GQs. I suppose some folks aren’t feeling the festive mood?

I am feeling relief beyond belief !!!!

cookieman's avatar

I’m actually a bit surprised how physically lighter I feel. Pretty great.

Inspired_2write's avatar

Breathing a lot easier now.
Now the transition has to occur as they Officially count the results.
Biden won both the Popular Vote and the Election.
Now in Georgia a Dem and Republican are vying for Senate seat.
..lets hope a Dem wins there as well! ( a slam dunk for Biden)!

Nomore_lockout's avatar

Well if Trump really pulls his little I’m not leaving stunt, America may end up having our own Bastille Day.

longgone's avatar

I am far away and relatively unaffected except for the fact that the world is literally burning, and Trump didn’t even pretend to care. Biden wasn’t my favourite candidate. And yet, I am legitimately happy – much happier than I anticipated. Skipping-and-jumping happy. I have been spontaneously and uncontrollably smiling for the last two hours.

And now I’m having Thai food with my happy husband to celebrate. Congrats, America. And thank you.

jca2's avatar

On the news, Chuck Todd was saying that world leaders will start referring to Biden as President-Elect, and Biden will start naming his new cabinet. This will suck the energy out of the Trump camp, because when Trump continues to cry about still being the President, and being robbed of the election, it will look ludicrous and like “what are you doing?”

Nomore_lockout's avatar

@jca2 Well, I’m sure Rasputin will make him feel comfortable.

Lightlyseared's avatar

Will put money on the remaining states declaring soon as I’m guessing no one wanted to be the first and end up with the crazy pro trump supporters rioting in their state.

I’m watching the news and someone is holding up a sign that says “Pack your bags, Skid Mark.” lol.

In response to the news, my British partner said, “Bad news indeed. The UK now has the stupidest elected leader in the western world.”

@johnpowell: “Time to start writing up enough sanctions on Russia to turn it into a trailer park.”

Love when liberals declare themselves to be more right-wing than Republicans. Fuck me.

seawulf575's avatar

I feel like it is not over yet. There were so many inconsistencies with the vote count that it will be challenged. And if it isn’t challenged or if the courts let things stand as is, it makes Biden’s election suspect and lacks credibility.

Call_Me_Jay's avatar

LOL the raving cultist.

Meanwhile, enjoy:

The Guardian” – “Multiple Rupert Murdoch-owned conservative media outlets in the United States have shifted their messaging in a seeming effort to warn readers and viewers that Donald Trump may well have lost the presidential election”

“The new messaging appears to be closely coordinated, and it includes an appeal to Trump to preserve his “legacy” by showing grace in defeat. The message is being carried on Fox News and in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post – all outlets avidly consumed by Trump himself, especially Fox.”

stanleybmanly's avatar

There will indeed be challenges and recounts, but again, only one of the 4 states in question need come through and our national nightmare is on his way to criminal prosecution.

jca2's avatar

On Huff Post, they said the Republicans are asking for money to help them in their legal battles.

Darth_Algar's avatar

@seawulf575

Your messiah lost. Deal with it.

jca2's avatar

@seawulf575: If the Dems committed widespread voter fraud, do you think Mitch McConnell would have won? :)

JLeslie's avatar

I feel like maybe the celebrating should have waited until court cases or any recounts were completed, but I do think it won’t matter, because I have no question in my mind the count overall is good.

I feel glad that Biden won, but nervous about the weeks ahead, because I see what people are saying on social media, and so many Republicans think the sky is falling,

Regarding the celebrating, I am happy to see almost everyone wearing a mask in the Biden crowds. No matter what the Republicans say, and they are saying things like, “I guess covid is over now,” and showing photos of crowds, the Biden Crowds do have on masks.

I feel very glad about the statements many leaders have made asking for Trump supporters to give Biden a chance. I want all Republicans leaders to come out and ask for some patience and faith in our country and what we can accomplish when we work together. I hope those statements are shown on Fox News. I saw Fox news for about an hour and they are showing Giuliani saying total garbage implying purposeful fraud. I do credit Fox for doing a quick interview with people who worked processing ballots, and they said there were no trash cans, no pens, people observing from both parties, that it was basically impossible to tamper with a ballot or the vote in any way. They also talked to Biden supporters out celebrating and the message mostly was that the Biden supporters feel relief that they don’t have to be afraid anymore.

Strauss's avatar

All the challenges and lawsuits will amount to no more than tweets with legal fees.

gondwanalon's avatar

I feel good that Republican leadership will likely maintain control of the Senate. Real good for a do nothing Congress. No green new deal. No packing the Supreme Court. Trump tax cuts will remain.

Also with Harris being the first black woman Vise President, perhaps that will end the BS of systemic racism being prevalent in the USA.

LadyMarissa's avatar

I NEVER believed that he was having new climb-proof fencing put up to protect him from rioters when he won…I always felt it was put up to keep the military OUT when he lost!!!

Just think of ALL the attention he will be receiving between now & January.

Call_Me_Jay's avatar

On Huff Post, they said the Republicans are asking for money to help them in their legal battles.

The fine print says 5% goes to the legal fund. 95% goes to the RNC and the Trump campaign (which spends to “hire” family members and shovel cash to Trump properties.

The rubes will never learn.

If they could learn they wouldn’t be rubes. Or Trump fans.

Demosthenes's avatar

@gondwanalon I wouldn’t bank on that. Obama being elected president didn’t end racism, to many people’s disappointment.

seawulf575's avatar

It sort of amazes me that you all seem okay with cheating. Let me point out a few of the things that seem illegal or extremely odd. 140,000 votes in MI show up while the polling station is closed and all are for Biden. Statistically, in a state that is close to 50/50, that is a statistical impossibility in a fair race. To get 140,000 votes for one candidate equates to something ridiculous like 1 in 10 trillion. Yet you seem okay with that. We have court orders demanding that representatives from both the GOP and the DNC are present to witness the vote counts. Yet at some of the stations, not only are the GOP (along with some media) refused access by some guy with a badge (who doesn’t seem to work for any state or local law enforcement), but they put boards over the windows so no one can see in. Why? If it is above board, why not let the witnesses see? Tuesday night, Trump was walking away with the election and suddenly they stopped reporting on it and a few hours later Biden has made step changes in counts. There is a law suit in NV about thousands of people that voted in NV even though they didn’t live in NV any longer. There are cases of dead people voting.
These sorts of things played out again and again and again. They all point to illegal activities. Yet you all seem okay with rigged elections. Let me ask…if all these things happened in favor of Trump, would you be okay with it? Would you consider all these things acceptable?

jca2's avatar

@seawulf575: The majority of mail in votes are going to be for Biden. Why? Because there are many videos of Trump at his rallies (August 17, 18, 2020), saying to the attendees (who of course would be largely or all Republican), “You’re all going to vote in person, I know that.” So the Republicans vote mostly in person, the Dems did a lot of mail in, and then surprise, the mail in votes are mostly for Biden.

Call_Me_Jay's avatar

@seawulf575 You need to go picket the Wall Street Journal and Fox News. They are part of the conspiracy. Don’t let them get away with this crime!

Lightlyseared's avatar

I think the problem from Trumps point of view is that some states insisted on counting all the votes instead of just stopping when Trump was in the lead which is what @seawulf575 seems to think is a fair ballot.

jca2's avatar

I just shared a meme on FB which is a photo of Melania that says “I’m finally free! Thanks Joe!”

Call_Me_Jay's avatar

@Lightlyseared Stopping the counting while Trump was ahead was the plan all along. It wasn’t a secret. Trump has been making baseless accusations about mail-in voting all along.”

I wrote this on Fluther a month ago: “I am voting in person because the administration is actively working to hamper the post office and disrupt vote by mail. I expect they will be fighting in court to discard them in states where Trump is ahead as of election day.”

zenvelo's avatar

@seawulf575 The “Magic Votes” suddenly appearing is a false story

It has been completely debunked as someone misreading a clerical error.

Just because Trump tweeted it does not make it true; most things Trump tweets are false or outright lies. Just last week, Trump’s lawyers told a Federal Court that Trump’s tweets cannot be considered as factually true in Federal Court.

stanleybmanly's avatar

@seawulf575 Let’s look at your claims and rebuke them individually. The claim that all of the ballots that showed up were for Biden is ridiculous. MOST of the ballots were for Biden because idiot maga heads believed the fool when he told them their mail in ballots would be stolen or tampered with so they voted in person Next, the windows were boarded up to prevent maga goons from breaking them. And the man with the badge was compelled to turn people away because the tallying office was already packed beyond tolerable capacity with people from both parties in the midst of a fkn pandemic. Trump was ahead simply because votes cast at the polls were totaled first. Republicans follow the fool’s example and dismiss the virus as trivial. Were the election a couple of years from now, Biden might be a shoe-in resulting from the numbers of dead maga covid victims. The lawsuits will all play out and the fraud charges will go the way they ALWAYS go. The fool will
be prosecuted for the criminal he most assuredly is. And conservatives will go to their graves convinced they’ve been robbed.

Dutchess_III's avatar

No. They stop counting, or at least declare a winner, when the outstanding votes won’t make a difference.
He won by how many votes? 3 million? 150,000 uncounted votes isn’t going to make a difference….but they will still count them.
This conspiracy theory crap is really for people who have low mental capacities and I wish it would stop.

seawulf575's avatar

@zenvelo Yes, a liberal outlet says it wasn’t true. Yet the same thing happened in several areas of the country, all about the same time. Were they all just counting errors that were suddenly corrected all at the same time?

seawulf575's avatar

@stanleybmanly ” MOST of the ballots were for Biden because idiot maga heads believed the fool when he told them their mail in ballots would be stolen or tampered with so they voted in person” Your proof of this? That Trump supporters didn’t vote by mail in ballots? And by your own wording here, you are disagreeing with the story which didn’t say MOST of the ballots were for Biden, it said ALL of the ballots were for Biden.
“Next, the windows were boarded up to prevent maga goons from breaking them. And the man with the badge was compelled to turn people away because the tallying office was already packed beyond tolerable capacity with people from both parties in the midst of a fkn pandemic.” Your proof that there was any violence at all from Trump supporters? And the fool with the badge wasn’t a law enforcement officer so what right did he have to throw anyone out? And the courts already directed that Both GOP and DNC observers would be allowed in to witness the counting. So by denying only the GOP, the Dem poll workers were violating a court order. And if throwing out observers was because of Covid, then they needed to get rid of other idiots like that fool with the badge or some of the other clingers-on that weren’t necessary people…not the ones the court ordered to be allowed there.
See? You are trying to use unverified statements as facts and are having to ignore actual facts to play this mental Twister game you play to make the Dems okay.

seawulf575's avatar

@Dutchess_III Your arguments are idiotic to the nth degree. You are saying Biden won by 3 million votes…overall. Yet you are trying to say 150,000 votes won’t make a difference. Yet if you have 150,000 votes in some of the prime areas, you could alter the results of that state and those electoral votes would go the other way. So yes, 150,000 votes DO make a difference. You are still trying to believe the popular vote decides the winner.

@Tropical_Willie Again…it amazes me that you are all okay with the cheating that went on to make that happen. Well, it doesn’t amaze me with YOU…a good Russian operative would have wanted Trump out and Biden in. Biden is a known corrupt politician that could be used. And you are a good Russian.

Call_Me_Jay's avatar

There is no evidence of cheating. It’s just like the Clinton body count – you can’t tell fact from ludicrous fiction.

You need to turn off whatever sources of misinformation you gorge on. It isn’t good for your blood pressure or your reputation.

So the big sissy was robbed? Another pile of nonsense allegations about which no one (including the GOP gives a shit. Orange Jaba has boo hooed and thrown his little tantrums for the entirety of the campaign. He told you clowns that he couldn’t lose without cheating, and you believe it. Meanwhile his party turns away from the cry baby, as he complains bitterly. It appears they are relieved to know they will soon see the back of him. Sore loser and his hard core devotees should just face the fact that you lost. 4 years of solid whining from the worst President in history. Did you notice that the entire world is celebrating, except for the British who now inherit the title for biggest boob as head of government.

Since trump has said with his own mouth that 244k people dead from Covid doesn’t count, 150k votes are just a drop in the bucket!!! I stood in line for 2 hours to wait to vote his ass out. We all know that reps DON’T wear masks & there was NOT one person waiting to vote who did not have on a mask & contrary to the last election, our governor failed at blocking any blacks that wanted to vote this time!!! Maybe trump shouldn’t have bragged that he was planning on becoming a dick-tater. It seemed to have put a fire under asses that have not cared about politics for a long time.

Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot that cheating is ONLY OK when the reps do it!!!

Every Republican accusation is a confession. The thief thinks everyone steals.

seawulf575's avatar

@Call_Me_Jay I find that hilarious. Wasn’t it the Dems that accused Trump of colluding with Russia when it was they that worked with the Russians to create a dossier to use against Trump? That sounds like projectionism to me…and it wasn’t the Republicans. How about the accusation that Trump was coercing the Ukranian president to take an action? Isn’t it funny that there was no such thing, that they had to actually try to rewrite the transcript to make their point, yet they entirely ignored that Biden had actually bragged about doing the exact same thing when he was VP? Projectionism. Do I really need to keep going?

seawulf575's avatar

@Tropical_Willie Your first citation is idiotic to the nth degree. Someone in Russia sent an invite to Trump’s assistant which she politely refused and you see subterfuge there. Some Russian reaches out to Cohen about a Trump tower Moscow issue and Trump forwards it on to the appropriate person to deal with. Yes, that seems really sketchy….NOT! I particularly love the statement “The two men may have had more communications, and the contacts listed in this report represent a conservative estimate.” In other words…there is nothing but they are trying to make it something. The list goes on and on. If this is your sort of “proof”, you need to get away from the loony left websites.
Your second citation is just as idiotic. Yes, Some Trump associates plead guilty to crimes. But take a look at the crimes…they have nothing to do with Russia Collusion. And all your weird beliefs fall flat when you come to the part that Mueller found no US citizens were knowing participants in any Russia efforts to interfere in the election. Sorry, hoss…you can pull up innuendo from Loony Left websites all day long, but you miss the facts.
And you miss the part where the FISA court ruled that the FBI basically faked the FISA warrant requests when they failed to say that the Steele Dossier was opposition research bought and paid for by Hillary and the Dems, that Steele was tossed out as a source prior to all this due to his bogus reports, and that they actually stated that this dossier was fully vetted. All of these things show that Hillary and those desperate to get her elected tried cheating to undo the 2016 election. And all of that really just cements my statement that the Dems are master projectionists.
