    there was someone who sped up the video (lost a frame) and made it look harassing (and then the WH released the edited version). Plus they left out when he said excuse me or something, which was left out on edit. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/...te-house-infowars-sarah-sanders-a8623441.html

    that's what I thought. Yesterday right after the press conference I saw it... and it didn't seem like I saw the same thing in the video earlier today. Is this really where we are at in this world?

    Yes. It's really bad. FL is headed into a recount (and Scott says that's a disgrace)
    and in GA Kemp is just saying they don't need one.

    Because he claims he won. You know, every vote counts.....as long as it gets me elected.

    A local small town on the eastern shore, their mayoral race was one by 1 vote. And they didn't recount because they wanted to be an example of civility and graciousness. the loser conceded like a gentleman.

    Granted this is a town of less than 400 but they are trying to do their part.

    Gore did that in that whole Bush/Gore thing.
    I hear what you are saying, but I want the Democrats to fight tooth and nail for every vote. Every single one. The Republicans didn''t become better people (a better party) because Gore stepped aside). They learned how to circle the wagons (McConnell refusing to vote on Obama's SCOTUS nominee). I don't want us to give an inch.

    This just seems kinda silly to me tbh, if it's a difference of literally 1 vote there should be a recount. In a town that small it'd take 15 minutes. Asking for a recount within reason shouldn't be seen as being a sore loser, it's making sure you get what the people actually voted for.
