I think some of the Trump Bump dropped off when everybody realized that the companies were just going to use it on stock buybacks.
He "ran" the American economy like a ponzi scheme, which isn't surprising at all for those of us who already knew he's a crook and a conman.
I think even the people that support him and voted for him know he is that way; they just expected him to pull off those things in favor of America.

Nope, it's all about him.

I agree--I just think he was able to con enough people to make them think it was about them. You know, the same thing he has done for a long, long time, starting with conning his own dad.

Are you guys following this North Carolina 9th District election fraud story? It looks like the GOP candidate and his campaign have been paying people bribes to fraudulently take people's votes and either throw them away or fill them out with votes for that candidate. He won by around 900 votes and they think he may literally have won only because of rampant election fraud. They even have some of the election workers on tape admitting that they were paid to go door to door rounding up absentee / mail ballots from voters and deliver them to the GOP campaign office. It's a big mess. They may need to redo the entire election because of it or invalidate the result.

And of course, the President and many other prominent GOP members have been so upset about their claims of massive voter fraud, including being mad that California took a while to completely legally count all of its ballots. But they don't say a peep about this when it happens to be the Republican who is trying to cheat to win the election. Hmm, interesting, that.

Voter fraud is unacceptable.

The sticklers are pointing out that this NC-09 thing is election fraud, not voter fraud. There is almost zero occurrence of voter fraud in this country supported by any evidence.

“Instead of supporting a thorough investigation, Republicans are attacking a state board that they themselves created in an attempt to obfuscate and distract from what’s happening in 9th Congressional District,” Goodwin said.

“Republicans requested to keep the current board in place, but as evidence of wrongdoing are mounting day by day, they no longer want this board to investigate.”

“Bladen County has had a long history of absentee ballot fraud,” said state Sen. Tommy Tucker (R). “If Republicans committed fraud, they need to be held accountable. We need to hold our own accountable.”
