AFTER (December)

In December, Trump continued to push lies and conspiracy theories about the election, not only failing to concede, but pushing efforts to overthrow the election results. During this month, Trump became increasingly isolated as even loyalists pushed back on his false allegations or resigned, leaving an inner circle composed almost entirely of his family members and conspiracy theorists. Trump continued to avoid the press and the American people, seeming to hide in the White House, other than a brief holiday trip to Mar-a-Lago.

AFTER (November)

This section is a list of broken norms from the transition period, starting on November 7, the day fortuitously Joe Biden was declared the president-elect and we reach the four-year mark (Week 208). The AFTER section will have separate lists for what remains of the month of November, the full month of December, and January through Inauguration Day.

We end the month of November, four weeks after Election Day, without Trump conceding. As Mary Trump’s book aptly warned us, Trump is seemingly unable to admit defeat, and, as has been typical over the past four years, a compliant, cowardly Republican Party quietly continued to enable an unprecedented time in our democracy — one that even the Founding Fathers did not account for. As we end November, only Republican leadership and most of its rank and file, along with Russian President Vladimir Putin, have yet to recognize Biden as the 46th president.

Week 208

This project could not have ended in a more perfect way (she writes while sipping champagne): Donald J. Trump was defeated shortly before noon on Saturday, the cutoff time each week, and so I was able to gloriously write “THE END” at the end of Week 208  — something I have been waiting to do for four long years.

This week, the U.S. held its election, and it was different than any other due to the pandemic and the resulting record early vote. It took days for the race to be called for Biden, as early votes were counted. Nonetheless, as he telegraphed he would do in the weeks and months leading up to November 3rd, Trump tried to steal the election, declaring victory at a hastily assembled news conference at 2 a.m. on election night.
