Well that is strange, I would think clerical error before I think conspiracy though. Did that happen on other broadcasts or did someone at cnn just incorrectly attribute stuff to Trump and fixed their mistake? How do the networks get those numbers?

I could be wrong, but my understanding is that they are directly tied to the state's count totals through an API during these broadcasts.

This stuff has already been combed through in great detail. Many lawsuits, recounts, and investigations occurred. Do you really think a graphic briefly changing indicates a great conspiracy to change votes? And not just an error or whatever it almost certainly is instead?

Yes, they were counted and recounted. The government doesn't control TV graphics.

They do if the numbers shown in the graphics are coming directly from the state government APIs.

So sick of Maga conspiracies and their FU way of thinking.

Russia invading NATO - Maga says good job Putin, we support you 100%.

Taxes - Taxes are bad and people that cheat on their taxes are the real Americans.

Military- People that join the military are all suckers and losers

Democracy - All US institutions are evil corrupt deep state entities that must be eliminated at all costs.

Sexual assault - Well, she probably deserved it.

Trump lying and cheating - He doesn’t ever lie or cheat. Everyone else is lying and cheating and this poor innocent man has been accused of horrible things he couldn’t have possibly done because he is Gods chosen one and God wouldn’t choose someone who wasn’t saintly.

Minorities - Nuff said

Actually his usual line is, “Never happened, she’s too ugly to sexually assault.”

Dude, it's just a lot of hateful comments, and it's disturbing that you have been convinced that is who you think half the country is.

Here's the thing, if someone made a list of lies about you, and you said that they were a bunch of lies. Would it make those lies true if that person said, "They are only lies to you."? No, you would know more than anyone that they were lies, and you wouldn't appreciate it. If anyone else believed those lies because that person said it, but didn't believe you saying that they were lies, it makes it worse.

It's the, "when are you going to stop beating your wife?" tactic. Wtf, man?

The Politics section has gotten a little more heated and negative lately. (I'm as guilty of this as anyone.) We could all do well to chill out and be kind to each other, even though the people on the other side have crazy political views. :-)
