Trump will refuse to leave office even if he loses ‘in a landslide’: HBO’s Bill Maher

Published

on

A conversation with former President Barack Obama official Susan Rice on election security in the 2020 election on HBO’s “Real Time” took a turn when host Bill Maher predicted Donald Trump will refuse to step down if he loses.

After Rice said she worried about election officials in some conservative-leaning states disenfranchising voters, Maher said it might not matter because Trump would dismiss the election results if he loses.

“I’ve been saying for a very long time now that I don’t think he’s leaving, the HBO host began. “I mean, he’s wasn’t going to leave the first time. It’s all about it’s rigged, he could lose by a landslide in 2020 and I still think he would say it’s rigged, fake news, deep state. I just think you’re going to get him out of there.”

“Bill, if he left office, what would you talk about in your monologue?” guest Neil deGrasse Tyson quipped.

“What did I talk about the 23 years on TV before he came along, Mr. Scientist?” Maher shot back.

Or, and this seems to be more likely to be the case now than ever, unless the person declaring that your opinion is incorrect – not debatable, simply wrong – is utterly convinced they, themselves, are right. Nothing can persuade them otherwise.

Iowans flocked to Trump in 2016. He betrayed them

Published

There has been no escape this week from the mainstream media’s wall-to-wall Trump impeachment drama. Yet while the media’s fixation on the Beltway crime wave makes for good television (and newsprint), there is scant attention being paid to the continuing slide of the economic circumstances of tens of millions of American families.

Trump ridiculed after his Louisiana governor candidate goes down in flames: ‘Guess it’s time for another unplanned trip to the hospital’

Published

Commenters on the Internet piled on President Donald Trump late Saturday night after the GOP candidate for Lousiana's governor seat lost to sitting Governor John Bel Edwards who held his seat in a state that Trump carried in 2016 by nearly 20 percentage points.

Trump visited the states multiple times to support Republican Eddie Rispone, but to no avail.

To add insult to injury, a Trump tweet on Saturday that read "Louisiana, 3 hours left, get out and vote for @EddieRispone for Governor. Lower taxes and much more!" was deleted and made unavailable by the president.

You can see a screenshot and responses to the president below:
