On Your Left! Donnie rants as Biden takes lead in state of Georgia

Joe Biden pulled ahead in Georgia on Friday and significantly narrowed the gap in Pennsylvania, gaining ground in two battleground states with enough electoral votes to settle his prolonged contest with current President, Donnie Trump, who repeated his baseless assertions of fraud and Democratic cheating.

Joe Biden pulled ahead in Georgia on Friday and significantly narrowed the gap in Pennsylvania, gaining ground in two battleground states with enough electoral votes to settle his prolonged contest with current President, Donnie Trump, who repeated his baseless assertions of fraud and Democratic cheating.

Biden had a small lead of nearly 1,100 votes early Friday in Georgia, a traditionally GOP stronghold with 16 electoral college votes, and was within 18,000 votes of Trump in Pennsylvania, which awards 20 in the electoral college.

As of Thursday, Biden had 264 electoral votes, six shy of the 270 needed to win the presidency.

Millions of mail-in ballots continued to be tabulated nationwide despite a flurry of lawsuits filed by the Trump campaign aimed at thwarting election officials from completing their count.

Making a brief appearance Thursday afternoon in his hometown of Wilmington, Del., Biden urged patience as the election pushed through its second day of overtime

“Each ballot must be counted,” he said at the Queen theater, a historic performing arts center downtown. “That’s what we’re going to see going through now.… Democracy is sometimes messy. It sometimes requires a little patience as well.”

Biden expressed confidence, as he did Wednesday, that he and his running mate, California Sen. Kamala Harris, would prevail. He once again avoided any declaration of victory, closing with a call for calm and an endorsement of the election’s integrity.

“The process is working,” Biden said. “The count is being completed and we’ll know very soon.”

A subdued Trump responded hours later at the White House, where he renewed accusations of voter fraud without offering any evidence to back up his claim.

“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.”

After keeping from sight for the better part of two days, Trump appeared deflated as he read his remarks. He did not take questions from reporters. In a departure from the wall-to-wall coverage of his presidency, several of the major television networks cut away before Trump had even finished.
