A broken clock... and Trump actually said something prescient.

I agree 1000%


Former president Donald Trump said the "real verdict" would be the US election in November after a New York jury convicted him on all charges in his hush money case on Thursday.

November 5th is for all the marbles...


An electoral defeat and he's reduced to the ash heap of history.

A victory... and while I don't believe in the whole "Democracy will be lost" stuff... I can foresee a vengeance based orgy of destruction and chaos for 4 years... and that would be VERY BAD for the US and the world.

He is now a convicted felon decided by a jury of his peers. That cannot be undone by the electorate. Ari made that very clear earlier.

His convictions will be a meaningless footnote or asterisk in History.

GOTV... for ALL our sakes.

Not that he will ever get near the White House again,. We need a win in November and we'll get it after this. His showing in Republican primaries, according to Republican biased media who claim Joe Biden's 90% primary totals are "dismal" for an incumbent, is much worse than that, largely because there has been a very consistent percentage of Republican primary voters who have said they won't support him if he is convicted of a felony.

The GOP will find someone else to nominate.

10. I am always amused when people tell me what Trump can and cannot do.

And then of course Trump goes and does the exact forbidden thing with impunity.

When or if Trump is POTUS he will do what he damn well pleases.
And no one will stop him.
And congress and the Supreme Court will back him.

The PutinGOP is in a sick symbiotic relationship with Trump.
It is 50/50 at best if they dump him this late in the game.

And yes Biden will win in a fair election.
But Putin and Trump are desperate to win, and have cheated in the past.
Now it will be worse.

The point is, nothing is certain.

If he's elected POTUS in November... what does it matter?

That's why November is so important.

and Of Course I know How Important November is!

TSF wants everyone to forget he's a Convicted Felon. Another GD Reason for Sane People Not to Vote for him.
