Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday congratulated Joe Biden on winning the U.S. presidential election after weeks of holding out.
And this one will leave a stinging welt:
“Our system of government has processes to determine who will be sworn in on Jan. 20. The Electoral College has spoken.
“So today I want to congratulate President-Elect Joe Biden. The president-elect is no stranger to the Senate. He’s devoted himself to public service for many years.
“I also want to congratulate the vice president-elect, our colleague from California — Sen. Harris. Beyond our differences, all Americans can take pride that our nation has a female vice president-elect for the very first time.”

And his new besties have abandoned him like a common Fox:
A scream from the Whitey House can was heard around the world:
The quote of the day (yesterday) from an elected politician so stupid my brain hurts:
“How is this America? Democrat electors are allowed in to vote but Republicans are not allowed? We are seeing totalitarianism take shape in front of our eyes.” — Rep.-elect Lauren Boebert (R-CO)
The NYTimes serves us some delicious MAGA tears:
“President Trump’s media criticism is usually binary — there are ‘good stories,’ favorable to him, and then the other category.
“Most news coverage on Monday fell into that other category. One by one, presidential electors in all 50 states and the District of Columbia formally recognized Joseph R. Biden Jr. as the president-elect, the latest and most significant rejection so far of Mr. Trump’s desperate attempts to undo the will of the voters.”
“But inside the sprawling and self-reinforcing network of websites, podcasts and video news that has fed some of the most reckless and unrealistic claims about the election, the myth of Mr. Trump’s political survival endures.”
