Diary 293

Tuesday, January 5th

A big day today as the senate run-off elections in Georgia take place, while in DC the so-called proud boys gather to try and provoke yet another fight, thus asserting their baseless claims of electoral fraud.  The lame-duck ‘president’ refuses to condemn these kinds of demonstrations, which is about what we’ve come to expect from him.

Meanwhile three million postal votes have been received in Georgia already. People want to vote, they want their opinions heard, they stand in line for hours sometimes in order to do so — and because we’re Americans we don’t take kindly to anyone who tries to shut us up or shut us down.

The rumor is that the former ‘president’ seems to be planning to avoid, well, everything. He has a plane booked for a flight to Scotland the day before the inauguration. Poor Scotland.
