he wont commit to answering stupid questions from his opponents media propganda arm.

All had to do was say "yes" and all the media would be left with is Trump giving the same answer as other Presidents. I don't understand why he didn't do that, he loves to lie anyways.

why would he do what you want him to do?

 

sometimes its good to resist everything your enemy does even if it appears innocent.

Why would he not do that? It's the only smart move, even if it's a lie. You seem to think handing your "enemy" live ammo is some aort of resistance. How fucking stupid.

This is like asking the QB of a superbowl team "Hey what are you guys going to do when you lose"


Its a dumb question.

Exactly except every president in history has confirmed they will support peaceful transfer in the event they lose.  Trump is again proving himself unworthy of office.

 

 


But the question wasn't "if you lose", it was just "will you commit to peacefully transferring power to Biden".


Why would he commit to transferring power when he hasn't lost?


It's a dumb question designed to scare people like you; if he answer yes he's conceding the election early, if he answers no he's a dictator.


You were duped by a low IQ journalist. Embarrassing.


Only numbskulls think the reporter was asking Trump to transfer power if he won the election. Anyone with half a brain knows what the question is. So yeah...you may actually have a point with Trump. We know he has less than half a brain.


Will you commit to stop raping your wife? Yes or No?

Is false equivalency all you have? How pathetic.


Do I have to spell it out to you?

It's a "gotcha" question, where the affirmative and the negative confirm something which the questioner wants to confirm and the questionee doesn't want to confirm.

The journalist is trying to get Trump to confirm he's going to lose the election or that he's a dictator.

The question I asked you tries to get you to confirm you've previously raped your wife.

They're both dumb, bunk questions that don't pull the wool over anyone's eyes who has a triple digit IQ.

We may not like the divisiveness of politics but those folks are the ones that have made it all personal with trump and vilified him for 4 years non stop.

 

when people make up vicious lies about you non stop and twist everything you say to its worst possible interpretation “enemy “ is the correct and accurate term.

Lmao! What the fuck are going on about? How does that confirm he is losing the election?

 

Let me give it a try, "I commit to peaceful transfer of power, if I lose the election." Holy shit, that was too easy.

How about we ask Joe if he'll commit to conceding the election. Then when he refuses (why would he commit to conceding when he hasn't lost?) we'll all scream and call him a dictator right?

Trump wasn't limited to "yes" or "no", you idiot. Why couldn't he do what I did?

 

Why can't Biden say, "I will accept the results of the election", if asked if he will concede?

i used to rely on a pseudo-impartial media to fact check our political leaders

 

they dont do that anymore, they play for a team. politicians have always lied, I watch their actions and his actions have been pretty good.

Meanwhile democrat leaders are calling for an all out war and to burn down America if the election is even close. Lmfao. 
 

Fuck outta here hypocrites. Trump shouldn’t leave office at all. 

Why do you hate democracy? 

Why do you only call out republicans when the left has shown for years they dont accept election results? 
 

And besides, we don’t live in a democratic nation. We live in a constitutional republic. Learn the difference, it might help you. And I love democracy. That’s why we need to make sure you radical motherfuckers don’t turn us into a socialist society.

Because its a dumb gotcha question. Ask Joe if he'll commit to conceding the election now and he won't either

There's no "gotcha". Trump could've said what I did, easily, with no gotcha consequences. You'd have to be a complete idiot not to be able to maneuver your way out of such a weak "gotcha", like Trump. I don't even think you know what a "gotcha" question is.

Why would there be a "transfer of power" if he wins?   Is this really how "journalists" ask questions?

yabadaba - No matter what happens Trump will say he won IMO.

Does anybody believe there is any circumstance that would result in Trump conceding he lost the election?

And exactly how do you brush over the fact it's already been revealed that the dems are planning to have biden refuse to concede the election regardless of the results?  This strategy came up in that democratic think tank with podesta and repeated by Hillary.  Hillary didn't just say this in a vaccum. It's the DNC plan and they have stated as such. 

Following this line of thought, you might also wonder why the GOP is considering ignoring the popular vote and appointing Trump loyalists as electors in November.


Because the "popular vote" doesn't matter.  

The president is elected by the states.  The states decide who to vote for by having a general vote in their state, and that vote determines how the state casts their electoral votes in December. 

You could ask each state to apportion their electoral votes in proportion to their general vote results.  States can do that.   So far, I think only one or two do it that way.  Even California, home of many people who want to abolish the electoral college, refuse to apportion their electoral votes.

The popular vote matters to electors, which is why GOP wants them replaced with Trump loyalists who are happy to ignore the popular vote. If you don't want your vote to matter, this is a good way of ensuring that.
