"A team of international observers invited by the Trump admin has issued a prelim report giving high marks to the conduct of last week’s elections — & it criticizes Trump for making baseless allegations that the outcome resulted from systematic fraud."
"We all knew Trump would try to rip our country apart after he lost the election. Don’t panic Trump doesn’t have a case, his legal attempts of a coup are dead on arrival in the courts. He will stir up his base but come January 20, 2021 at noon he becomes an ordinary citizen."
