    2021 appears to be following 2020. Stupidity is still alive and kicking. Hey those 70 million morons: Grow a pair and grow the hell up. Put on your big boy and big girl pants and work to make the world a better place instead of trying to make the world a 5th grade playground.

    Speaking of the inauguration, yesterday BLM was DEMANDING all Wash DC hotels shut down until after Jan. 20. to prevent protesters from coming. Biden voters don't need hotels. They sleep in cemeteries.

    Trump voters don't sleep in cemeteries, they're just brain dead. (One Trump voter is in a cemetery, I saw his brain the other day in a laboratory. The container was labeled "Abnormal. Do not use this brain!")

    The only real draw back there is then the Q-anon "people" would swear he was never really sworn in and not legally president. Unfortunately, we need to do this, in front of 1000 cameras with as many people present and watching as possible.

    LOL...at those still posting in this thread as if he actually said it. Read the thread folks. TT did not suggest postponing a transition of power. Just the ceremony.
    He is literally calling for what many here support. No large public gatherings during this historic pandemic.

    And you wonder why people distrust the media.

    Might want to update the title to read "ceremony". He supports the constitutional swearing in.

    Tilly, does the misinterpretation of Tuberville on the inauguration mean that he is no longer stupid?

    From the man that every commercial he ran was 1. My opponent is a left wing socialist and will do whatever Pelosi and Schumer want him to do. He doesn't represent the integrity and beliefs of Alabamians.
    to...
    2. I fully support President Trump and will do everything I can to Make America Great Again.

    He never offered anything else and couldn't debate his own shadow. Cannot for the life of me understand how anyone would have voted for him to an office with this much responsibility.

    Yes, it is a rule that if you use quotation marks you can only leave out words in the middle of the quote if those words don't change the meaning. If leaving those words out doesn't change the meaning then you just use an ellipsis (...) in their place. Multiple mainstream sources left out words that changed the meaning of the quote and didn't even use an ellipsis. Now people all over twitter and other social media are pretending they are constitutional scholars because of poor journalism.

    The media outlets quoted a poorly written news report written by the Alabama TV station that did the interview. I’ve read several stories that all quoted local station CBS42. That is the source of the problem.

    The source was poorly written but that doesn't excuse it. The video was right there with the news report. If I can watch the video to confirm what he said, so can the professional journalists at CNN, Newsweek, USA Today, etc. Especially if they are going to take it a step further and editorialize. If you make a claim that a US Senator is advocating something that violates the constitution don't be lazy in your research. It takes a couple of minutes of additional work to watch a video clip.

    Oh sure, I mean literally doing a public swearing in, like the Bible thing at the end with Roberts, then gone.

    And FTR, not for Qultists. What difference does proof make to them? They have never once accepted anything outside their fantasy.

    And conversely, with all the lies TT and others in the Republican Party have spewed in the last few months to overthrow an election, you can understand why people here jump on anything coming out their mouths.

    The best scholarly guess is that the President's term would begin, but he would be unable to execute his office until sworn in. They had a somewhat similar issue that led to some dispute over whether a random Senator was actually President for a day or not.
    U.S. Senate: David Rice Atchison: (Not) President for a Day
    If Atchison was not the president on March 4, who was? Atchison himself believed that the office was essentially vacant for that day. He could point to precedent on this point. Inauguration day similarly had fallen on a Sunday in 1821, the day on which President James Monroe was to take the oath for a second term. Monroe also chose to delay his oath until March 5, leading John Quincy Adams to write in his diary that the delay created “a sort of interregnum during which there was no qualified person to act as President.” Constitutional scholar Charles Warren concluded in 1925, however, that the Constitution only requires that the president take the oath “before he enter upon the execution of his office.” Zachary Taylor, Warren argued, was for all intents and purposes president the moment Polk’s term ended, since he could have taken the oath and executed his responsibilities at any time thereafter

    So a media outlet quoted a fraudulent report by another media outlet? Pretty much sums up the problem. :(

    Yep, and that type of jumping puts eggs on faces.

    Perhaps...perhaps...we should all wait to actually know facts.

    100% correct. Never a point to do anything to prove something to a conspiracy theorist.
