Tkings weeks of denial, ongoing series. While the elected president advances, forms his teams, the defeated president sinks. To concede defeat would have freed him as surely as a confession can appease the liar, but he still cannot. He curses and grumbles, repeats his anger, promises that we’ll see what we’ll see, that it’s not over, that it never will be.
On Thanksgiving Day, November 26, Donald Trump had conceived the laudable plan of reaching out to military personnel deployed far from their families. He is installed behind a small cramped desk framed by two bare fir trees in the reception room of diplomats (Diplomatic Reception Room), but he devoted more time to the journalists present than to the military, to rehash his obsessions, under the vaguely worried gaze of George Washington whose portrait towered over him.
The first question focused on his plans for his last Thanksgiving at the White House. The president immediately retorted that it was too much to say that he would not have more. “ If you watch what’s going on. You really have to watch what’s going on.

Twenty-five minutes of painful complaints ensued.
Donald Trump has admitted that he will not lock himself in the Oval Office on January 20 at noon, when his mandate expires, with his hands gripping the Resolute Desk, but this concession has been drowned in an embarrassing array of results of the election.

A good title for his Memoirs.
“To say that an election was fraudulent does not make that election fraudulent. It takes specific claims and evidence, but we have neither “, ruled Friday federal judge Stephanos Bibas, however appointed by Donald Trump, during an appeal procedure concerning Pennsylvania. It was the last rout in a long series of shaky remedies. But Donald Trump can all the more refuse this cold reality as it resonates in a vacuum, or almost, within the Republican Party whose highest leader, Ronna McDaniel, repeats his accusations with exemplary servility.
