  • Let's say it plays out the way we think it's going to play out.

  • Let's say that that Biden is declared the winner.

  • My guess is Trump doesn't concede there's a bunch of lawsuits, but my guess is they don't really go anywhere because they're they're frivolous lawsuits.

  • And I think the votes have been careful.

  • What does he do between now?

  • If you had to guess, what does Trump do between now and Inauguration Day?

  • And by the way, I don't see him sitting up there on the day I said the inauguration, I think he'll be.

  • I think he'll pull a Herbert Hoover and just take off.

  • Or, to be fair, John Adams look, his folks, his supporters and advisers warned before the election that it did.

  • And it should be said that the Biden campaign, the Trump campaign, saw the race the same way.

  • Coming into the final weekend, they saw Trump Azaz um, tightening in the final week, but not with a clear path to 2 70.

  • The Biden folks really thought text and I kept saying this on election night, I thought Joy and Rachel says we're gonna explode.

  • But the Biden campaign didn't have Florida or Texas on their path to 2 70.

  • I mean, they were really, um, singularly focused on those on the Upper Midwest in Pennsylvania, and they always looked, um, within reaching in Arizona.

  • But what the Trump folks said to me was that it depends on how Trump loses.

  • And if he wins and a contestant in close race, he will probably, uh, forgo all of the traditions of the transition.

  • He would be very unlikely toe invite Joe Biden to the Oval Office and talk to him.

  • And frankly, at this point, Joe Biden probably knows more about the presidency than Trump does.

  • Uh, likely Thio Joe Biden.

  • If he went to meet with Donald Trump, Joe Biden might have to show him where the Oval Office is.

  • Make him turn on the lights for the longest.

  • I don't know.

  • It's this way.

  • It's over this.

  • Oh, you never.

  • That's the bathroom, Donald.

  • You would have loved it.

  • I mean, you know, but yeah.

  • Look, I think you're absolutely right.

  • And if you can think of other traditions not so much public facing ones.

  • But traditionally you let a president elects transition team into the Cabinet agencies to start understanding way federal programs that no one really talks about our seas much about.

  • But, you know, I don't think any of that will happen.

  • I think I think Biden's greatest sort of political, um Hurdle, was that he didn't really thrill that.

  • The newly energized kind of progressive base kind of the the AOC wing of the party but his greatest govern.

  • Those things make him the strongest person to commit and govern after trial because having been there for so long and having, um, you know, he's got decades in the Senate where he was sync up policy wise with John McCain and Ted Kennedy.

  • So he knows kind of all sides of these debates, and the things that may have weakened him in a Democratic primary would probably strengthen him in a transition to power.

  • After just such a bizarre, a bizarre presidency, that of Donald Trump.

  • Well, I guess we'll find out.

  • Maybe by the time this airs they would have called Pennsylvania.

  • Do you think?

  • Thats possible, it'll be tonight.

  • The latest I heard was that be in this again is sort of the good news and the bad news, because these air so decentralized and you've got these local local government folks doing it.

  • You really can't, you know, rush the raspberry.

  • It'll be right when it's ready, they'll be done counting when they're done counting.

  • And so, as you have never heard anyone say, rush the raspberry.

  • You know, when you when you want to eat the raspberries off the books, I get it.

  • Now I get it that I've been around the block a long time and I've never heard anyone, but I love it.

  • I'm gonna start my people a card to Yeah, we're not gonna rush the raspberry c e.

  • There will be no rushing the raspberry on my wife.

  • You can't rush account And so it's very unsatisfying.

  • So I think that's why you see all this.

  • And I just say, When I worked on campaigns, I could barely read a poll so I could barely read exit poll data.

  • They would come to pollster, would walk in this wonderful guy named Matt Dowd.

  • He's over on ABC now, and he'd say, I've got all the data and I can't even see numbers like Just tell me what we have to do.

  • Do we have to be nicer do we have to be calmer?

  • Do we have to be smarter?

  • Thio.

  • So I can I.

  • It all gets a little blurry to me.

  • But my understanding is that all the outstanding vote in Pennsylvania is acknowledged by both campaigns to be favorable to Joe Biden.

  • Most likely, And that is why in Pennsylvania, the strategy is to stop the counting, whereas in Arizona, where some of the outstanding vote is expected to add to both candidates columns, the legal efforts are, too.

  • I think keep the vote counting isn't that fascinating?

  • And you know one of the things and and then well, I'll have to wrap it up.

  • But one of the things that boggles my mind is that so many, um, people are wondering, Why are some of these vote counts taking so long on its?

  • Because, especially if you look in Pennsylvania, it's Republican legislators that wanted it that way.

  • They wanted the count to take a long time.

  • Trump wanted it to take a long time because they knew that the write in votes three mail in votes.

  • The drop off votes would heavily favor the Democrats, and they wanted those votes to come in late so that they could seem illegitimate.

  • So it's It's theater, it's just it's the whole thing.

  • Is theater it?

  • The whole thing is playing out exactly as they wanted it to, right?

  • There's no reason in this modern era, even with co vid that that we couldn't have had these results a lot earlier.

  • E That is really important.

  • This was their design to corrupt our impression of the outcome.

  • That strategy, I think, that Donald Trump was ahead and what was really dark and what is really twisted is that instead of trying to compete and say, Oh, it's a pandemic A lot of Republican, especially Republican seniors they may wanna vote for me by mail to let me work on that program so that my mailing boat is just his robustas His It was just such a cynical play to say I'm not going to give my vote of the option.

  • They're going to stand there damn it in the middle of a pandemic that happens to be surging right now.

  • And so they designed this and there is just incredible irony that that this will end up the fact that we know that a lot of this outstanding vote is for Biden is because Donald Trump didn't ever want it to be counted and included, right.

  • And now they're saying What's very suspicious?

  • That it's coming in late?

  • No, it's not.

  • It came in on Election Day or before.

  • It's only being counted late because you wanted it to be counted late so you could do what you're doing now.

  • It's very frustrating, but I just choose to drink a lot.

  • Um, heavily.

  • I'm heavily medicated.

  • I'm not even sure where I am right now.

  • Countries, I'm just saying that way.

  • Look at where we were four years ago, and, um and then we look at what we are probably on the cusp of right now.

  • This is a much better place to be.

  • Everything is beautiful.

  • And I, too am eating.

  • I mean, my son's Halloween candy has been inhaled and consumed and metabolized by me is all gone.

  • I mean, I feel because we're suspended, were paralyzed, you know, But I think e no Halloween.

  • I just filled.

  • I didn't even get candy.

  • I just put a giant bowl of 10 mg Klonopin out, and I gave them to everybody and everybody on my Street is feeling People kept coming back, kept coming back masks, no masks falling asleep on my lawn.

  • It was a good time.

Let's say it plays out the way we think it's going to play out.
