PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS 2020
The time has come for America to switch gears. Normally in previous elections in my lifetime, there’s a peaceful transfer of power after the people decide.
In this cycle, there’s a monster, human sack of dung sitting (illegally) in the Oval.
Steven expressed the feelings of the sane people in America. As I watched, my heart skipped a beat and I got chills.

Trump repeatedly lied to his constituents heading into Election Day, falsely claiming that mail-in ballots would be illegal and an attempt to steal the election away from him.
The president doubled down on those claims in his briefing room appearance.
“If you count the legal votes, I easily win,” he said. “If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us.” Trump then further bent reality in suggesting that election officials counting ballots in Pennsylvania – a state in which he is currently trailing Joe Biden in the polls by a low margin – are up to no good.
“They don’t want anybody watching them as they count the ballots, and I can’t imagine why,” he said.
Turning his attention to the GOP, Colbert said it’s in their “best interest” to “get off the Trump train.”
“You only survived this up until now because a lot of voters didn’t want to believe everything that was obvious to so many of us: that Donald Trump is a fascist,” the host added. “And when it comes to democracy versus fascism, there are not fine people on both sides.
So you need to choose: Donald Trump or the American people?”

We all knew Donald Trump would do this, that he would refuse to show dignity in defeat. But what we didn’t expect is how much it would hurt.
Watch Stephen Colbert process his feelings in real time as he delivers a new monologue written in the wake of the President’s sad, frightening remarks in the White House briefing room
