Wrong headline. Should read: American business leaders fear Trump coup, hold call to discuss it. on.ft.com/32KGTRY via @FT
"There was great concern about the president’s words and the national reaction, that it was leading to more cleavage in the country rather than less. None of them wants a divided nation. They don’t want fractured communities. They don’t want hostile workplaces.”
Amazing that the Blackstone CEO was so uninformed, did not know that absentee ballots were being deliberately counted late in PA
Another possible headline: "Schwarzman reveals shocking ignorance about US electoral process, appears to be victim of Trump disinformation campaign"

Remember: she was a birther. Lying about the legitimacy of an elected president was how she got to be First Lady
All legal votes are being counted, right now. There is no evidence -none- that anything is going wrong. Calls for "transparency" are designed to make people believe something untransparent is happening. It's not.

Every single serious analysis I read of this election said that it would be long and drawn out, and that Trump would try to steal the election by trying to discount late-arriving Biden votes. And now that it's happening...everyone seems shocked.

Battalions of lawyers are preparing for Trump to try to steal the election. The president and his tame media put out reams of disinformation designed to make people lose faith in our voting system. How do elite conservatives respond? They pretend they don't know it's happening
and yet one more! it's as if it were an organized response ...and do note that my original tweet said nothing about all violence coming from the right. In case of a stolen election, I absolutely expect it to come from the other side.
