President So Much Winning lost the election. Again.

It’s Monday, November 30th, and here is a man grooming a hairy coo named Hamish (via BoingBoing).

Political Crap

Hey: you know who still lost the Presidential election? President So Much Losing We’ll Be Tired of Losing still lost the Presidential election by 6 million votes.

The Wisconsin recount was completed yesterday, and Joe Biden increased his vote tally by 87 votes. This recount cost the Trump campaign some $3 million, just to be told, again, that they lost.

Wisconsin is set to certify its results this afternoon. 

Still, President Litigious plans on suing Wisconsin because … early in-person voting in the larger, and Blacker, and more Democratic cities was bad? OK. Good luck with that, kids.

On the other side of the country, Arizona also certified their vote, and win for Joe Biden.

Meanwhile, President Chump continues to howl into the wind, literally emotionally incapable of comprehending that he lost (The Washington Post has a great story about this that you should read.). And I’m not being snarky: his Narcissistic Personality Disorder prevents him from being able to process the fact that he is a loser. It must be fraud! It was rigged! Everyone — including his Republican allies, the FBI, and his own Department of Justice — they’re all in on it!

Literally. He literally suggested this:

This is insanity.

Also, having President Shortsighted going around screaming that the election was fraudulent,  might hurt the Republicans in the Senate runoff in Georgia: after all, if President Paste-eater lost in Georgia because the election was rigged against him, why should Republicans participate in another election in that state? It’s only going to be stolen from them:

LOL. The head of the Leopards-Eating-People’s-Faces party meets the leopards.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden continues naming his administration, including his economic advisors and his all-female senior press team. He has started receiving intelligence briefings, and plans have begun on the inauguration, which will take place 51 days from now. He also hurt himself playing with his dog which is mostly notable because it’s a reminder that we will finally have dogs in the White House again. It’s been a long, dogless four years, y’all.

Going Viral

200,000 Americans tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday. One day, 200,000 positive tests. And these are the cases before the cases that will inevitably happen thanks to Thanksgiving. We’re going to have a surge in the next couple of weeks, and there are going to be Christmas funerals, because we just aren’t learning.

But! In addition to Pfizer’s vaccine, Moderna expects to get emergency approval for their vaccine as early as December 17. We are so close to ending this thing, people. Just wear a goddamn mask, social distance, and hold strong.

David Prowse, actor and bodybuilder best-known for embodying Darth Vader in the Star Wars movies, passed away from COVID-19.

Arie Luyendyk Jr. has COVID-19.

Goddammit, Rita Ora and Cardi B. DID Y’ALL LEARN NOTHING FROM KIM KARDASHIAN’S BULLSHIT? Celebrities are the worst.

Good job, New Jersey.

One positive development that has come from this pandemic: SantaCon has been canceled in New York City. Sorry, fans of public vomiting.

I warned y’all, NFL. I told y’all this was stupid.

Floribama Shore and The Flash both had to suspend production because of positive tests.

The Cowboy Channel CEO discusses how the pandemic has changed rodeos. It’s actually very interesting — because the big rodeos are being shut down, big rodeo stars have started competing in small rodeos around the country. There was also this bit about the biggest rodeo in the world, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo:

We were in the middle of broadcasting Rodeo Houston.  It’s one of the largest rodeos and on March 12th it went dark.  We found out at noon that day during a press conference. We were never given a heads-up, and due to Covid, it was now canceled.  We were only on day 5 of a 20-day event. Singer Kane Brown was supposed to perform that night. We had to pivot really quick.  We had nothing to broadcast because all the large rodeos we were going to broadcast were now shut down. 

WAIT, WUT?

Celebrity chef David Chang became the first celebrity to ever win a million dollars on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? and he was playing for Houston chef, Chris Shepherd’s Southern Smoke Foundation, raising money for people in the food and beverage industry in need.

I’m asking Santa for this for Christmas.

I can’t argue with a single thing on this wish list of stories we need to see on Shameless this final season — in fact, Steve/Jimmy with Fiona was number one on my list, too.

Disney is going to simulcast the NFL Wild Card game in January on ESPN, ABC, Freeform, ESPN Deportes, and ESPN2 so there will be no escaping it.

Daredevil was canceled by Netflix on November 29, 2018, which means as of yesterday, Netflix’s contract on the property has expired. Fans are encouraging Marvel to make a new Daredevil … something. Series or movie … something.

The United Kingdom’s government is VERY CONCERNED that you won’t know that The Crown takes certain liberties with the truth and wants Netflix is make it clear that it’s “fiction.” But is it?

Peacock is sorry that Saved by the Bell made a tasteless joke about Selena Gomez’s kidney transplant.

Pat Sajak is sorry for being a jerk to a Wheel of Fortune contestant who had a perfectly good question about a very dumb answer.

I don’t know how to prepare you for this video, except to say that if you were a fan of Nathan for You, you will find this clip which begins as a promotional video for the HBO series How to with John Wilson, but then becomes a story about how Nathan Fielder is now a cult leader of a bunch of TikTok producers amazing. If you have never heard of Nathan for You, then I don’t have any idea how to explain this, and wish you luck.
