I don't think this will ever stop being hilarious.

Trump Team Holds News Conference Outside Drab Landscaping Firm, Next to Adult Book Store

On Saturday morning, shortly before the AP and other news outlets called the election for Joe Biden, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to announce that his lawyers would be holding a “big press conference” in Philadelphia. But there seems to have been some major confusion about where it would be held. First Trump tweeted it would take place at the “Four Seasons, Philadelphia.” Trump later corrected himself and said that the news conference was going to be held at the Four Seasons Total Landscaping. And the Four Seasons Hotel sent out its own tweet, making sure everyone knew that the news conference would not be held there but rather at the landscaping business that has “no relation with the hotel.”

When journalists arrived at the site of the news conference, they were flabbergasted by the scene and many quickly speculated that someone in the Trump campaign made a serious mistake. After all, the parking lot of a landscaping business in the outskirts of the city in an industrial part of town was a drab backdrop for a news conference by a president who wanted to convince Americans he still had a chance of winning. And making matters even stranger, the landscaping business was between an adult bookstore and a cremation center. The location led to lots of mockery online, and many people were very happy with the scene that was ripe for mockery, and some saw as a poignant metaphor of the failure of the Trump campaign.

Perfect setting in Philadelphia though, between a dildo store and a crematorium.
That jaunt is somewhere between "go f@#k yourself" and "die in a fire".

Every 30 seconds in America, a Latino turns 18 and becomes eligible to vote. Over half of Georgia’s Latino population is under the age of 18. This means there are thousands of Latino youth in Georgia who will turn 18 on or before 5 January who qualify to register to vote in the Senate elections. This is in addition to hundreds of thousands of Latinos already over the age of 18 who are currently unregistered to vote.

The registration deadline for all Georgians who wish to vote in the runoff elections is less than a month away, on 7 December. These next three weeks present a small window of opportunity for Democrats to expand their electorate. Emerging Latino populations can and will tip the balance in this election.

Latino organizers and groups on the ground such as Galeo, a non-profit that helps register new Latino voters across Georgia, need funding and resources right now in order to mobilize Latinos in large enough numbers to swing the state. Over the past four months, Nuestro Pac – now the largest Latino-focused Super Pac, which I helped found – spent over $5m to galvanize Latino voters for Biden in swing states like Arizona, Michigan, Nevada and Pennsylvania. These efforts helped deliver the margins of victory for Biden in many of the states he won.

What's terrifying is how narrow the victory was despite the 5 million vote advantage. This system is broke, broke broke.

One mistake it is easy to make with Trump is thinking there is some nefarious grand scheme behind his actions.
I think Trump's resistance to conceding boils down to the following the small and petty reasons:
    Bitterness of losing
    Opportunity to grift from keeping the dispute going
    Wanting to keep information about his corruption hidden

To that last point, and I suppose the 2nd point. Consider that there are very powerful people that he owes money to who will not be able to be paid if he is in jail. And he has access to information etc that would be very useful to them, but he only has 2 months to pay down any debts of cash or favors before his utility is significantly lessened. Trump may not be nefariously bright, but there are people who he owes that definitely are.

Dont underestimate tRump’s laziness when thinking about his inaction
in response to a number of issues. I don’t honestly believe he
is terribly interested in anything resembling hard work.
A lot of what we call 'thought' is just mental activity

Just amazing how many piles of human (?) garbage sacks occupy the most power in the Republican party - and they all look like evil comic book characters.

Well, as an octogenarian, after attending that event, she just might go.
