He’s talking to his cronies about which states to contest. The Press Secretary is preparing her speech in which she plans to argue that the whole election is invalid due to voter fraud.

But Biden will have won so convincingly that Trump’s inner circle will be working on ways to “talk him down” and get him to concede. Due to massively increased mail-in voting, this may take as long as two or three weeks.

when asked about it later, he will just redirect that Hillary didn't speak on election night in 2016.

'fake news,' Hillary's emails, Obama, deep state, black lives matter, his bone spurs, statue toppling, mail-in voting, kung-flu, and on and on.....

I seriously have my doubts he would face the nation after the pounding he will receive.

I picture him at Mara Largo, sitting at a buffet overflowing with KFC and Big Macs while raged fueled spittle spray keeps everyone at bay. He will go to his grave claiming he was cheated out of a 2nd term.

Even his family won't be there. He will be all alone because they don't need him anymore, maybe except for federal pardons which won't help them much because NY and other states are going after all of them.

Hopefully it will be caught on camera. I also suspect that Ivanka and her hubby already have "departure" plans set in motion. Whether or not they will be successful will be interesting to see.

I still say that, with a Biden victory, starting the morning of November 4 though January 19 (and maybe beyond), will be very scary days.

He will tweet that it was rigged and he wants a recount.

A few of his unhinges fans will set fire to black and Jewish owned businesses or even shoot people.

There will not be widespread riots. But expect some isolated outbursts. He will tweet his supper for that.

But you won’t see his face for days.

...which is that election night speeches may be a thing of the past. With a growing emphasis on absentee ballots and vote by mail, having results on election night may not be practical.

I think the Secret Service and members of a few other agencies will be making sure he stays within reach to make sure he gets what's coming.

he already has people investigating. They have lots of evidence that will be coming out in a few days. He may even threaten his followers may have to use their 2nd Amendment solutions. He will declare himself the winner.

But if I am wrong, I don't see him making a concession speech. He doesn't have the character to do so...there would be nothing or a statement released by one of his lackeys, followed by much Twitter spewage.
