In the sense that matters, Joe Biden won the election. Sure, Donald Trump may have won more votes in more states, and he was surely cheated out of votes in several others. But he lost. And Biden won.
 
We know Biden won because it will be he that is sworn in next week and not Trump. It’s tough to swallow, but that’s what’s happening.
 
If a party cheats, and is in charge of investigating accusations of cheating, and if the media calls the cheating a conspiracy theory, and if the rulers move to expel those who question the cheating, as has already happened, then that party will win by virtue of its power....
 
That means the Republicans who were supposed to be watching out for their candidate’s interest should have seen what happened coming, and prepared against it.
 
Instead, the election night turned into a grade D French farce — Trump well ahead in crucial states at sundown, his lead collapsing when the lights went off. This suggests that the party professing support for Trump was not exactly in earnest....

Biden will be enthroned regardless, and he won’t be going anywhere. Until Kamala finds a way....

There was still hope in 1960 that elections could regain integrity. That hope is now a wisp. At the very least, Trump helped us understand that.
