      (MANDOS POST, people who don’t want to read things they disagree with please stop here) I don’t normally watch horror movies, but I made an exception and recently watched the horror film Get Out. It’s a horror-satire movie that constructs its underlying trope from the concept of racist microaggressions, and it’s one of the best films […]

Trump on Election Fraud. Message: He Cares 

BiFF is on it: 

Capitulating today to public demands for clarity regarding Russian interference with the 2016 elections, President Donald Trump created a panel to investigate fraudulent Russian voting during his campaign against Hillary Clinton. 
Trump commissioned the panel by executive order, to be headed by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, and co-chaired by VP Mike Pence. Trump denied that Kobach and Pence’s strong ties to alt-right, extreme racist, white nationalist, and homophobic groups would in any way preclude their objectivity in prosecuting the case against Russians infiltrating the US or Ukraine to vote against the Republican party.

 “Kobach and Pence’s strong ties to alt-right, extreme racist, white nationalist, and homophobic groups will in no way preclude their objectivity in prosecuting the case against Russians infiltrating the US or Ukraine to vote against the Republican party,” said Trump.

“A photo ID is just crucial to stopping this,” tweeted Trump. “I mean, even I know 8.7% of the people from Georgia are really from Russia. And 10.7% are muslims! And they ALL voted for Hillary! We must stop this!!!”

The Confluence apple-ogizes for any spreading of fake news and alternative facts. The correct percentage of ethnic Russians in Georgia is 6.3% as of the 1989 census, the most recent year for which data could be found on wikipedia.

  1. This and other actions of the last week tell me that Mr Artofthedeal is in a corner … And he knows it … And I would suggest if Pence goes along with this rouse he is just as DIRTY … Which then leaves us the Speaker in the succession plan … No wonder he has a perpetual knowing smirk

  2. There is no way that Pence should be allowed to become president and to benefit from Trump’s collusion with the Russians.

  3. If they go, they will all go, and we will have Hatch as POTUS IMO.

    • And the GOP will still benefit from cheating and collusion because we’re still going to have a GOP president even though i seriously doubt Hatch had any part in all this. We need to fix this problem by doing a couple of things first of all getting rid of the electoral college. We also need to allow for elections to be re-held if there is collusion with a foreign power. .

  4. Off topic: I complete my 54th solar orbit tomorrow.

    Maybe I should celebrate with some tacos?

    Or not. 😮

  5. I have wondered why there were no articles on voter suppression in all things GOP before the election. But to have to read this drivel now, is too much. I am referring to WaPO article which says Black turnout for Hillary was low as if it was all her fault without framing the low turnout in the context of the voter ID laws, crosscheck, closing polling places in Black neighborhoods and other such GOP shenanigans. Not good.

    Thread:

  6. I wonder what SNL’s cold open will be tonight.

    It seems Melissa McCarthy was spotted in the area near Rockefeller Center on a motorized podium.
