– “Al Capone” is now trending on Twitter. Wait, people are just now figuring out that Trump is going down for tax fraud like Capone? What did they think that New York grand jury has been doing for the past year? The subpoenas of Trump’s financial records weren’t just for kicks. They’re in the process of criminally indicting Trump on state charges for financial crimes – which he can’t pardon. Trump was always going to prison in New York if he lost. At least more people are figuring it out now.
– Speaker Nancy Pelosi reportedly called Donald Trump a “psychopathic nut” on a conference call last night. This isn’t surprising. When I spoke with Pelosi on the record a few weeks ago, she kept calling Trump a “thug.” Spot on. I love Nancy Pelosi.
– Now that the recount is complete and Georgia is certifying Joe Biden as the official winner today, Trump and his people are making rumblings about demanding a recount of the recount. That’s right, Trump now wants to lose Georgia for a third time.
