Former President Barack Obama openly congratulated Joe Biden for being the "president-elect" on Saturday, and asked Americans to "give him a chance."
“I know he’ll do the job with the best interests of every American at heart, whether or not he had their vote,” Obama said. “So I encourage every American to give him a chance and lend him your support.”
Gag me with a spoon.

Obama said that the results of the election proved that the country was still “deeply and bitterly divided” and that Biden and Harris would have to lead the effort to bring the country together.
Obama said he could not be prouder for Biden and his wife Jill as well as the “groundbreaking” achievement for Sen. Kamala Harris as the first woman and the first black woman to serve as vice president.
The former president warned that Biden faced tough challenges after taking office, citing “a raging pandemic, an unequal economy and justice system, a democracy at risk, and a climate in peril.”
He encouraged all supporters of the campaign to stay involved with the fight as active citizens of the country.
“We’re fortunate that Joe’s got what it takes to be President and already carries himself that way,” Obama declared, “Enjoy this moment. Then stay engaged. I know it can be exhausting."

Cuomo: 'If I Wasn't Governor, I Would've Decked' President Trump
Wow! New York Governor Andrew Cuomo must have forgotten that he is part of the party of love, acceptance and tolerance. He showed great hostility towards President Donald Trump during his appearance on The Howard Stern Show on Monday.
Cuomo confessed that he would have “decked” Trump if he was not the governor of New York.
Trump Campaign Demands Hand Recount in Georgia
President Donald Trump's campaign has demanded a hand recount of ballots in Georgia, and has threatened legal action if Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger does not comply.
I do not think that a hand recount is out of the question. So much fraud has happened in the past week, and it WILL be exposed. It is within the POTUS rights to question things.
Senator Lindsey Graham Makes Shocking New Claim About Ballot Harvesting
Earlier this week, Senator Lindsey Graham made a claim that there is also widespread ballot harvesting in nursing homes throughout Pennsylvania.
This is certainly new among the recent allegations, but it's not unheard of. This is something that has been reported to have been happening in Minnesota.
BREAKING: Dominion Software Glitch Fixed, Puts Trump Back in Lead in Another Key State
The "glitch" in the Dominion software that runs the ballot tabulating machines for this election seems to be inflicting the most damage into this election.
As you would expect, every single glitch just happens to be in favor of the Democrats.

One of the worst things about the radical left is that they'll stop at absolutely nothing to get their way. If they don't get it, they're just going to go ballistic and get crazier.
To them, the law means nothing. It doesn't matter to them if something is illegal. Their Trump Derangement Syndrome is so severe
MUST SEE! Pennsylvania Steals 32,000 Votes from President Trump in One Hour!
I think it is well known that perhaps the biggest problem we face with these elections in terms of election/voter fraud is the "glitch" we continue to find in many states.
The part that I find most interesting is that whenever any of these problems are discovered, they all benefit the Democrats.
