What a wild ride this week was. Election day Tuesday initially showed Trump winning, as most of his supporters voted in person. But for many weeks before election day voters had been casting ballots either by mail or in person early voting.
As counting progressed Trumps lead was slowly whittled away. Biden flipped Wisconsin, Michigan… Finally on Saturday the race was called for Biden/Harris & people poured out into the streets cheering! Church bells rang!
It looks now like Biden will end up with a crushing 306 electoral votes!
Of course Team Trump has reacted predictably- suing to stop counting, claiming without evidence that there was massive fraud. So far judges have tossed out ten separate lawsuits.
So Rudy put together a press conference at the Four Seasons in Philly – not the exclusive hotel but The Four Seasons Landscaping business. Nestled between Fantasy Island Adult XXX store and a crematorium. The jokes write themselves!
What began five years ago with the made-for-TV announcement of Donald Trump’s presidential ambitions from the escalator of his ritzy Manhattan high-rise, ended Saturday with his aging lawyer shouting conspiracy theories and vowing lawsuits in a Northeast Philadelphia parking lot, near a sex shop and a crematorium.
In hindsight, the hastily arranged news conference featuring Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, just minutes after Joe Biden had been declared the victor of the 2020 race, delivered a fitting end to a campaign that had been at times characterized by its slapdash techniques.
Now we just have to survive til the inauguration…
