It’s 2020 and the TV stations are showing 20 minutes+ footage of an empty Trump podium
The question of whether TV stations would take Trump live even if he said things that aren’t true has been settled. He was making false claims of “disenfranchisement” by his second sentence.
And now the president is claiming that he won the election, just like he said he would, and it’s being carried on live TV, even though as of now, it is a lie.
Many of the votes that have not been counted were cast **before** Election Day.
As a basic fact of understanding, Trump cannot just go to the Supreme Court and ask the justices to intervene. There would first need to be state court fights, which would have to be based on questions/irregularities/suits as the counting happens.
The president said he would claim victory whenever he could. He said he would bring a challenge to the Supreme Court.

Now, as counting continues, he’s doing all of it.

He also said that he wouldn’t accept results if he doesn’t win.

Biden campaign manager @jomalleydillon says Biden is "on track" to win today and "will be the next president of the United States."
Biden campaign manager is projecting wins in Nevada, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania. Calls Georgia "currently a toss-up." North Carolina "probably leaning towards Trump" but "going to do down to the wire."

"We think that this is already a foregone conclusion."
Biden campaign lawyer Bob Bauer predicts that if Trump does try to get to the Supreme Court to stop the count, he will be dealt "one of the most embarrassing defeats a president has ever suffered in the highest court of the land”

Marco Rubio 2016: “People around the world are watching this debate and this campaign and wondering what’s happening here, because the things [Trump] says are nonsensical.”

Marco Rubio 2020:
Rubio went on to warn in 2016 of Republicans supporting Trump: “These are people that – whether it’s now or five years from now or two years from now or six months from now – are going to be explaining for a long time how they fell into this.”
Rubio also said of Trump in 2016: "This is not about political correctness. This is about rules of civility and the way a society talks to each other."

NEW from me: Michigan was Trump's narrowest win in 2016. Democrats have spent four years trying to figure out how to get it back. Here's what they did:…
This story is, effectively, Part 3 in a four year, three part series. It started in 2016, with just how many ways the Clinton campaign screwed up in Michigan in 2016:…

the White House is still a coronavirus hot spot, and the coronavirus czar is still not following scientific recommendations about how to keep people safe:
at the beginning of the summer, Pence was insisting there was no second wave of infections coming. There was, and it's here. But this could be a second wave of infections just within the White House grounds.
this is from a few weeks ago -- after the VP debate -- but here's Short and Pence and the rest of the debate prep group, no masks

more of the White House's Twitter account focusing on publicizing government action only in states where the president is focusing his campaigning:
Now as Trump has landed for another campaign stop in Wisconsin, the White House Twitter account is tweeting about federal help to Wisconsin. As the information states, it is a government account, not a campaign account. Yet:
The president is headed to New Hampshire to campaign, so today the official White House government account has started the day promoting work in New Hampshire:
