‘No I Can’t Say That’: Trump Says He Will Not Concede – but Will Exit White House if Electoral College Makes ‘Mistake’



President Donald Trump used the occasion of Thanksgiving, weeks after Election Day, to declare he will not concede.

Speaking to reporters after calling troops overseas – at 1:16 AM their time, several hours later than scheduled – the President was asked if he will finally concede.

“No I can’t say that at all,” Trump replied, the first time he’s taken questions from reporters in weeks.

President-elect Joe Biden has 306 Electoral College votes, against Trump’s 232.

He also said the Electoral College members will have made a “mistake” if they do not declare him the winner of the 2020 presidential election, as Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs reports.

But he also said he would leave the White House if Biden is the official winner. (Trump frequently denies making remarks he has made.)

Trump, however, is not planning on believing the results.

“I don’t know what is going to happen. I know one thing, Joe Biden did not get 80 million votes,” he added.

‘Don’t Know the Words’: Trump and First Lady Scorched for Not Being Able to Recite Pledge of Allegiance on 9/11



President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump participated in a 9/11 remembrance ceremony at the Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Both White House occupants were “clearly,” as some noticed, unable to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

President Trump appeared to say some of the words but looked confused. The First Lady did not even attempt to recite the pledge.

‘Aiding and Abetting’: Stunned Americans Slam ‘Traitor’ Tucker Carlson for Again Declaring He Is on ‘the Side of Russia’



‘Unimaginable Betrayal’

Fox News top primetime host Tucker Carlson Monday night stunned many Americans by declaring he supports one of America’s greatest enemies.

“I should say for the record that I’m totally opposed to these sanctions and I don’t think we should be at war with Russia and I think we should take the side of Russia if we have to choose between Russia and Ukraine,” Carlson told his Fox News viewers.

It was not the first time.

Just one week earlier Carlson had made a very similar statement, only to walk it back at the end of the episode after immediate outrage on social media.

“Why shouldn’t I root for Russia? Which I am,” Carlson had declared one week ago Monday.

He later claimed he had made the staggeringly offensive remark to mock the left.

Carlson might want to remember that Russia attacked the U.S. 2016 election in order to make Americans distrust our democratic institutions, including our election system, and to install his chosen presidential candidate.

(And it’s not just Russia’s attacks against America. Human Rights Watch issued a report on Russia’s violations of human rights, including “Torture and Cruel and Degrading Treatment.” Also, attacks on “Freedom of Assembly” and “Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity,” among others.)

After Carlson’s Monday night embrace of Russia, many on social again expressed outrage and disgust.

Some accused Carlson of “aiding and abetting” Russia:

Some launched hashtags, including #ComradeCarlson #TraitorTucker #CarlsonIsACommie #TuckerCarlsonIsATraitor.

Some accused Carlson of treason or being a traitor:
