I hope he continues to give press conferences as the President long after Biden actually takes office

They are addressed as Mr. President afterwards aren't they.

Much to the chagrin of real people with the surname President.

Trump will also get classified intelligence briefings after he leaves office - which should be interesting.

Given his disdain for national security and his known susceptibility to flattery and corruption, is that a good idea?

Biden can say no to Trump getting the briefings if he wants to.

I didn't realise just how much Trump will get once he leaves office:

Apparently there were two popes for a spell when some Italian bloke simultaneously declared himself Pope Italian Bloke XVCIIIrd.  Would be tight if Trump just split off into a second renegade presidency, but operating out of the back room of some Vegas strip joint instead of The White House.

Duuude.

Considering he stopped reading them a few weeks into his presidency most of the world is fine except maybe Iran.

They'll give him decoy briefings. Each week the Wikipedia article for a different Mission: Impossible.

And when he died, the faithful danced on his grave in celebration. Which is where the old song/nursery rhyme comes from:

I remember reading about when Fred Trump got demented he'd still go into the office in Manhattan every day and people were told to give him blank pieces of paper to sign and file because he still thought he was in charge.

Funded by private donations, rather than public money, but probably not the best time to tweet about a new White House tennis pavilion.

I presume the donations were intended to try and get favour with Trump. I can't imagine someone wealthy looking at all the possible sources for donations in America and choosing the White House tennis pavilion for any other reason.

Or pictures. Apparently he could be influenced on international matters by being shown photos of crying children and things like that.

Is that all the legal team in the plague hospital then?

Has anyone heard from Rudy? Reports that he’s been hospitalized.

It wouldn't be surprising if Goulie's incubated a new, much more virulent, much more deadly strain of C-19 in his ass, and the Ellis woman is its first victim.

Well well well. Going to the Supreme Court after all. This could be the moment where all pretence of democracy in America disappears if they even hear this and would make a mockery of their justice system. Kind of want it all to fuck up so the walls truly come crashing down.

They've filed directly to the SC, who will toss it because that's not how cases reach the SC.

You’re right, it has to go to circuit courts I think.

I think this is more performative with a view to future primary elections than anything else. Abbot reckons this will help him with the wing nut GOP primary electorate when he runs for governor in a few years. I don’t think anyone really expects this to go anywhere.

From The Washington Post

Quote
The Supreme Court on Tuesday denied a last-minute attempt by President Trump’s allies to overturn the election results in Pennsylvania.

The court’s brief order provided no reasoning, nor did it note any dissenting votes. It was the first request to delay or overturn the results of the presidential election to reach the court.

I wonder how TheDonald will react to that. Incoherent fury? Which to be fair is the way they seem to react to everything.

Wasn't December 8th one of the key dates for progress to the final fucking off? I haven't read anything except the latest on this tedious performative bullshit.

I said Abbot when I clearly mean [Texas AG whose name escapes me, but happens to be embroiled in his own legal problems].

He was able to win re-election while under investigation for federal crimes thanks to a trump endorsement so I suspect he’s properly leaning into it at this point.

Some states finalise their EC votes, I think.
