1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: “He won” – Donald Trump just conceded to President-elect Joe Biden



In the movie “A Few Good Men,” Tom Cruise manages to goad Jack Nicholson into confessing to murder in an angry outburst. For the past week everyone has been trying to goad Donald Trump into admitting that he’s lost the election – and now, in an angry outburst, it’s finally happened.

For context, here is Trump’s full concession tweet, and keep in mind that everything beyond the first two words is a lie: “He won because the Election was Rigged. NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation & bum equipment that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, & more!”

Of course nothing matters beyond the first two words, because those two words are “He won.” This is a concession, period. Of course an hour later Trump tweeted “He only won in the eyes of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA. I concede NOTHING!” But there are no take backs – not in this context at least.


   


Shortly after Trump’s concession, Republican Governor of Arkansas Asa Hutchinson appeared on NBC and said it was “good” that Trump tweeted out that Joe Biden has won, and that it’s “very important” that Biden start getting presidential intelligence briefings now. In other words, Trump’s concession has given some Republicans an excuse to go ahead and move forward.


In that regard, even though Donald Trump hasn’t generally been displaying anything close to a coherent strategy on anything lately, you have to wonder if his accidental concession was on purpose. It’s served the purpose of allowing mainstream America to move on to the next thing, taking the pressure off him to concede, and playing out in a way that his gullible base will be able to convince itself that he never really did concede. Or maybe Trump really did just blow it. Either way, he just conceded that he lost.
