Democratic nominee Joe Biden appears ready to clinch the 270 electoral votes needed to become our 46th president of the United States in January. President-elect Joe Biden has a nice ring to it after all of the chaos, abuse, and mayhem we’ve been subjected to under the Trump administration with a narcissist at the helm. One of the many problems with having a malignant narcissist in charge is that they aren’t capable of admitting defeat. And there are reports surfacing saying that Donald won’t concede.
And remember that Trump has not committed to a peaceful transition of power. Joe Biden, though, has zero fucks to give over speculation that Trump won’t leave the White House.
The Biden campaign released a statement through spokesman Andrew Bates, saying that he will be escorted out if Trump refuses to vacate the White House.
Biden campaign’s @AndrewBatesNC on reports that Trump does not intend to concede the race: “As we said on July 19th, the American people will decide this election. And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House.”

Conceding an election is not the law, but it is the graceful thing to do. It is what presidents do when they lose an election to keep from dividing the country. So, since it’s the grown-up, responsible thing to do, Donald Trump may not go down that road. Trump is a deeply vindictive man, and we’re sure he will try to make Biden’s transition into the White House a nightmare.
Team Trump has been elevating the president’s false claims of widespread voter fraud.
“Trump has acknowledged to some allies he recognizes the electoral math will not work in his favor, according to people familiar with the conversations, but has maintained that a prolonged court battle and corrosive rhetoric about election fraud would sow enough doubt to allow him to refuse to accept the results,” CNN reports.
“The Trump campaign released a statement Friday morning making clear it will refuse to concede the election,” the report states, “calling any projections of Biden as the winner “false” and the race “far from final.”
“This election is not over,” Trump campaign general counsel Matt Morgan said in a statement, according to the outlet. Well, I have an idea. Drag his ass out of the White House, slap it on pay-per-view to give Americans another stimulus relief payment.
