Suppose that Donald J. Trump is lawfully sworn in as President on January 20, 2017. Will the Hillary Clinton supporters and the Never Trump-ers stop fantasizing about how to prevent his inauguration?November 29, 2016 10:42 pm at 10:42 pm #1204208👑RebYidd23Participant
Yes, and will start petitioning Congress not to be his puppets.November 30, 2016 12:26 am at 12:26 am #1204209Torah613TorahParticipant
NoDecember 20, 2016 3:28 am at 3:28 am #1204210
It seems that you’re right, Torah613Torah.
This from Yahoo News, in an article reporting that Trump won the Electoral College vote:
Almost certainly, indeed…December 20, 2016 3:42 am at 3:42 am #1204211FuturePOTUSParticipant
It’s hilarious that after all this controversy over electors changing votes and the whole liberal fuss, Trump lost but two votes, and Clinton lost FIVE–including one to Faith the Spotted Eagle!! I think the media is severely out of touch as to what is actually going on with the people.December 20, 2016 4:18 am at 4:18 am #1204212mw13Participant
Yes, they will stop fantasizing about preventing his inauguration and immediately begin fantasizing about impeaching him.December 20, 2016 12:39 pm at 12:39 pm #1204213
note the “if” in your sentence. Though you are probably right.
but if you are talking about hypocrisy, let me get this straight you are criticizing democrats for reacting the way the Republican Candidate essentially said he would act if he lost, how is that less hypocritical than your hypothetical scenario?
IT was Faith Spotted Eagle who got the electoral vote he is a persson not a bird. Though what a fitting end to a strange election more PEople (5) won electoral college votes than any election since mid 1800’sDecember 20, 2016 1:45 pm at 1:45 pm #1204214HealthParticipant
catch yourself -“Suppose that Donald J. Trump is lawfully sworn in as President on January 20, 2017. Will the Hillary Clinton supporters and the Never Trump-ers stop fantasizing about how to prevent his inauguration?”
Of course Not! The Demoncrats will Never stop!
Will Hillary ever truly concede the election?!?December 20, 2016 1:50 pm at 1:50 pm #1204215
“Will Hillary ever truly concede the election?!?”
speaking of fantasizing This is her speech from November 9
“..we must accept this result and then look to the future. Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power…”December 20, 2016 2:01 pm at 2:01 pm #1204216JosephParticipant
ubiq, seven people won electoral college votes, by my count. Trump, Clinton, that Indian guy, Powell, Ron Paul, Kasich, and Sanders (in Hawaii).December 20, 2016 2:06 pm at 2:06 pm #1204217nishtdayngesheftParticipant
Not only did Hillary lose 5 electors, there were 3 others who were removed because they weeee not going to vote for her.
In “true democratic fashion” their votes were not counted because they did not conform to the democratic party’s wishes.
Shows you that they are really a lot closer to communismDecember 20, 2016 2:18 pm at 2:18 pm #1204218golferParticipant
Ubi, Faith Spotted Eagle is a she not a he.December 20, 2016 3:18 pm at 3:18 pm #1204219
If Trump is sworn in on January 20th, then he will have been inaugurated…too late for fantasies about it not happening.
Yes, I voted for Secretary Clinton
Almost certainly, indeed…”
The certified winner should be sworn in on January 20th. BUT only Hashem knows what may occur between now and January 20th. I wish Trump no harm, but maybe Moshiach will come before noon on January 20, 2017December 20, 2016 3:28 pm at 3:28 pm #1204220
Most Clinton supporters are NOT dwelling on dreams of removing Trump from office.
They are forming plans of action to deal with changes in the laws and programs of the Federal Government and to elect a different President in 2020.
I am an elected Democrat and a member of my Town and State Democrat Committees. We are busy working to achieve our goals in 2020. BTW>>>my state went blue and EVERY single member of Congress and the Senate from CT is Democrat. For many years we had a Democrat majority state legislature and Republican Governor…we know how to work across the aisle to achieve results. Republicans are not our enemies, many of them just have views we don’t support.December 20, 2016 4:22 pm at 4:22 pm #1204221golferParticipant
Ct that was well said and you sound like a very normal intelligent competent person.
I haven’t seen any statistical studies on the exact proportions, but unfortunately, a lot of Clinton supporters, including First L, are behaving and speaking in a disgraceful manner. The decent ones, like you, don’t make the headlines.
You have to admit, if Trump had lost and his supporters were making these kind of statements and sending death threats to electors (!!!) they would be relegated to the dust bin with all of society’s other deplorables. And certain people would be calling out the National Guard to protect us from them.
Since they’re our beloved Dems who just happened to have failed kindergarten (-how not to be a sore loser when someone else wins the game) we’ll let them continue with their deplorable behavior and we’ll act like the kindergarten teacher who failed her early education classes (-don’t reward inappropriate behavior).December 20, 2016 6:16 pm at 6:16 pm #1204222
Bad or boorish behavior should never be rewarded
You’ll find that the deplorables on the right and the malcontents on the left are both loud and ignorant. However, they do not run the state parties and saner views will prevail as we move forward.
Those us us who don’t like Trump, don’t want America and Americans to suffer, just so he may go down in histyory as a terrible PresidentDecember 20, 2016 6:56 pm at 6:56 pm #1204223
“If Trump is sworn in on January 20th, then he will have been inaugurated…too late for fantasies about it not happening.”
Obviously, I knew that once sworn in, he will have been inaugurated – the absurdity of the question was exactly my point. The people who have been making all this noise certainly knew that all their efforts all this time have been as futile as they would be come January 21.
“Yes, I voted for Secretary Clinton”
For the record, I could not bring myself to vote for either Trump or Clinton. Further for the record, my write-in candidate still has not conceded the election.
Almost certainly, indeed…”
The certified winner should be sworn in on January 20th. BUT only Hashem knows what may occur between now and January 20th. I wish Trump no harm, but maybe Moshiach will come before noon on January 20, 2017″
All true, but I think that you misunderstood the phrase “almost certainly” in the original (which was an AP article published on Yahoo). The way the sentence is structured, it means that the winner almost certainly will be Trump, and in context it teases the remote possibility that Joe Biden, as President of the Senate, would somehow prevent such a result from being certified.
And, of course, I never meant that all Clinton supporters are fantasizing about preventing Trump from being inaugurated.December 20, 2016 7:01 pm at 7:01 pm #1204224
I to agree with CT lawyer but like he said “Bad or boorish behavior should never be rewarded” Yet we just witnessed that behavior being rewarded w/ the presidency. Now Im not saying that justifes bad boorish behavior (certainly not threatening anybody!) but it is what is driving, some of the opposition. OF course some (most?) is driven by pure old troublemakers
nuch besser! (when I said 5 I forgot to count the two “real” candidates) thanks fort he correction though you are of course rightDecember 20, 2016 10:22 pm at 10:22 pm #1204225HealthParticipant
Ubiq -“”Will Hillary ever truly concede the election?!?”

I remember the speech.
You must’ve missed the word “truly”!
But that’s all-right – all DemonCrats, like Hillary, are fraud, phony, fakers! (Bob Grant)December 20, 2016 11:53 pm at 11:53 pm #1204226👑RebYidd23Participant
This country was founded by troublemakers.
