Believe it or not, the last votes for the 2020 election are still being counted. With each update Joe Biden’s popular-vote lead increases. He is currently 4 percentage points ahead of that other guy.
The electoral vote count has been finalized and can not change with the remaining outstanding votes. Biden is at 306 and him at 232.
Despite Biden’s 154,000 vote lead in Michigan, and with the knowledge that Trump couldn’t whine loud enough to change numbers, Norman Shinkle, a Republican member of the Michigan Board of Canvassers voted against certifying Biden’s win.
*Bumbling: clumsily incompetent or ineffectual
*Fool: a weak-minded or idiotic person.
So, Norm did this and his three colleagues voted to certify the state’s results, making Norm’s gesture ineffective.
“Michigan board certifies Nov. 3 election, cementing Biden victory.”
What Norm did accomplish was twofold:
1. Norm fed conspiracy theories that Biden’s win was not legitimate, further riling Trump’s base, and perpetuating division in our nation.
2. Norm may as well have tattooed a giant red T on his forehead because this will be his legacy, what he is remembered for above anything does in his career.
*Bonus for Norm: two hours after he voted against Democracy, White House officials were “blindsided” by the news that the sore-loser-in-chief agreed to comply with Biden’s transition — White House Officials found out when they heard CNN reporting the story.
Oops – Norm picked the wrong team. He hopped on the Titanic as the musician’s soused instruments muted.
* I corrected my title- he hasn’t “conceded,” he has finally agreed to comply with Biden’s transition team. Big difference, sorry. 😬
