It’s Monday, November 30th, and here is a man grooming a hairy coo named Hamish (via BoingBoing).
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.
🚨🚨BREAKING: Wisconsin's presidential recount is completed. Joe Biden gained 87 votes and again won the state.
Trump becomes the first presidential candidate in history to lose recounts in two different states.
Trump and his allies remain 1-39 in post-election litigation.

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:
In Georgia today, @GOPChairwoman Ronna (seriously, that’s her name) McDaniel was having a hard time convincing MAGAs to vote after @realDonaldTrump already convinced them that the election was rigged using machines that REPUBLICANS WANTED. pic.twitter.com/UMNTePf1Ha

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.
I love being a nurse. Didn't exactly expect to be a new nurse in the middle of a highly politicized pandemic but life comes at you fast and even in a pandemic, there's nothing else I want to do. Caring for the sickest of the sick is an honor and I treasure my patients.

Covid is a brutal disease and I wouldn't wish the worst of it on my worst enemy. Please understand that you aren't just protecting yourself, you are protecting the people around you.

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.

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.

If you have never heard of Nathan for You, then I don’t have any idea how to explain this, and wish you luck.
