Trump’s Failing Coup and Florida Man Does Good – What I Learned Today – Tuesday, November 24

Michigan certified their election results yesterday and Pennsylvania just certified theirs today:

Trump’s attempt at a coup just got even more difficult. We’re really not talking about how serious that could have come if Biden had a slimmer margin of victory though. Biden won overwhelmingly and the GOP is barely acknowledging his victory. If this came down to one state, we’re in a very scary place right now. I’m afraid this may become the norm. Democrats will have to blow out Republicans from now on or they risk having their victories stolen in broad daylight.

In other news, can we discuss how Trump has taken a loss and made it into almost a two week extravaganza of losing every single day in courts around the country?


Trumper Emily Murphy the Administrator of the GSA who runs it like it’s her personal fiefdom finally signed the letter authorizing Biden to get federal funds, office space, and other transitional goodies. She was supposed to do this two weeks ago but fascist tendencies are strong in that crowd.

Trump immediately took credit for her signing the letter even though she clearly states that he was not involved. The media took Trump’s tweet as a sign of concession. So of course, he had to clarify his tweet by a different tweet:


Well, the freedom thing is going really well:


Florida man, no WAIT FOR IT.  WHY DID YOU ASSUME THIS WAS GOING TO BE SOMETHING STUPID?  Florida man dives into a pond and saves a puppy from an alligator while never losing his cigar.

Don’t even think about messing with this Florida man’s puppy.

Richard Wilbanks, 74, acted swiftly when his 3-month-old pup Gunner was snatched by an alligator in the backyard pond of his home in Estero, near South Florida’s Gulf Coast.

In a stunning video, Wilbanks wrestles the young gator in waist-deep water, bringing it above the surface and prying open its jaws to release the King Charles Cavalier spaniel.

“We were just out walking by the pond,” Wilbanks told CNN, “and it came out of the water like a missile. I never thought an alligator could be that fast. It was so quick.”

Acting on adrenaline or instinct, Wilbanks said he just “automatically jumped into the water.”

He said he sustained some injuries to his hands and went to the doctor for a tetanus shot to be safe.

Gunner had one small puncture wound to his belly, but is doing fine after a trip to the vet, Wilbanks said.

Wilbanks told WINK News that he understands this is the alligator’s home and does not want it removed from the pond. He urged other pet owners to keep their animals away from the water’s edge.
