Over the past four years, a good portion of Americans (and people all around the world, truthfully) have been long awaiting Election Day — many of us ever since the moment we got the results of the last one. And it has been a long four years. It has been a hard four years. And it has been a scary four years. And it’s always felt as though Election Day was the light at the end of this long, dark tunnel. It was at least a chance at hope and salvation if we could all band together to take down the administration that has tortured and endangered us over the course of this presidential term. And ultimately, we were successful.
After the longest election of our lifetime, the votes were finally counted and the 2020 presidential election was finally called — Donald Trump has lost his bid for a second term in the White House, and his Democratic opponent Joe Biden has been named president-elect by every reputable media outlet from coast to coast. To say the very least, we all breathed a collective sigh of relief when the election was finally called, after several excruciatingly long days. We deserve to be happy and proud.
However, I’ve long been warning people that, even if Trump should lose (like he has,) we aren’t out of the woods until Joe Biden is officially in the White House — which is still a handful of weeks away. And frankly, a lot of damage can be done in a handful of weeks, especially by someone like Donald Trump and the people in his administration who blindly follow him.
Trump has already proven that his lame duck period was going to be difficult with the onslaught of lawsuits and allegations of voter fraud. However, things seemed to go from bad to worse today when both the Acting Pentagon Chief Chris Miller and National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien suddenly announced that United States troops are coming out of Iraq and Afghanistan, only to refuse to answer a single question on the subject after the announcement.
The acting Pentagon chief and national security adviser both refused to take questions after announcing US troops are coming out of Iraq and Afghanistan. That is kind of unbelievable.

Truthfully, God only knows what these people have up their sleeves. But we all know that Trump is the sorest of losers, and he knows he’s lost. I can only imagine that whatever it is, it’s not good.
