    There once was a narcist called trump,
    Who’s just hot air and fat in a lump,
    With incels he’s sidin’,
    But lost out to Joe Biden,
    After fukkin’ the US in a 4 year long dump.
    Stylish. 😏

    Trump's lawsuits, they fly everywhere-

    His evidence is thin as the weave of his hair-

    Though his lawyers are prospecting-

    The judges are rejecting-

    Now his lies they simply lay bare!! 😀

    "Walter Tevis appealed to the popular cultural trope of the deeply troubled chess genius.
    He might well have believed that readers who did not play chess would be bored by the
    less sensationalistic lives of real female chess prodigies such as Judit Polgar and Hou Yifan.
    So Tevis decide to embroil his heroine with substance abuse and sexual complications."

    This book, and the Netflix series which it was based on was never intended to be taken as anything other than fiction. The reason I like it so much, has nothing to do with race, sexism, drugs, or the finer points of tournament chess. This is an imaginative, fictional story about an introverted young person's introduction to the game (very much like myself at that age) it's my favorite literary topic and one of the very few of it's kind ever produced.

    An academic paper concludes that 18 Trump campaign rallies
    (where most people ignored social distancing or did not wear masks)
    likely led to more than 700 deaths by Covid-19.

    I'm sure this is true, in fact the death toll may be higher than that before we know the full effect of his rally's. I don't know why Trump supporters can't get it through their heads this virus doesn't care which candidate one supports - it's an equal opportunity killer. Maybe they really are "that" dumb!

    How many episodes are there? Has it run its course?
    7 episodes that I know of, and yes, it has run its course. It's sad that Walter Tevis didn't live to see his book come to life. I think he would have liked it.

    Yes, there is something big afoot: Trump is re-organizing the defence dept., but that is another story.

    Trump is soliciting donations to fund his election-denial lawsuits:

    However, the fine print reveals that only 40% of the donations will actually be spent o ...[text shortened]... r of on-going suits:

    Which begs the question, if Donald Trump is as wealthy as he claims, why doesn't by pay his lawyers with his own money??

    What is your end game, anyway. Seriously. Trump posts are now boring, and anything about Biden is uneventful, as AOC will take over. So, get to the point, you fellers. What is your end game?

    Right now I'm studying minor piece endings, and they are NOT simple. 😵

    His lawsuits claiming of voter fraud aren't passing legal muster with even the most Conservative judges. He is failing to gain ground on Joe Biden in the remaining battleground states. Nearly 80% of Americans Now Say Biden Won White House, Ignoring Trump's Refusal to Concede. His financial and tax records show he owes far more than he has, killing his myth as a successful businessman. Multiple sources say Melania will divorce him soon after he leaves office. An increasing number of his inner circle are advising him to admit defeat. A mountain of legal and financial woes await him in January, and with no White House to take refuge in, arrest and/or indictments may not be far off.

    Like an ice cube melting in the blazing afternoon sun, Donald Trump's political, personal, legal, and financial fortunes, are melting away for all to see. He is now a a broke, defeated, obese old man, facing a grim future.

    Some Americans have speculated that Russia (led by Putin) has a
    secret hold on President Trump and has been pulling some strings to
    have him do Russia's bidding, without making it appear too obvious.

    After Trump has left office, he would have little usefulness to Russia. So will President Trump--with hardly anything left to lose--order the US military and intelligence establishments to hand over their deepest secrets to Russia? Would they obey their commander-in-chief?

    I don't think so - Ordering the US military to do such a thing would raise a number of red flags, and I highly doubt the US military would obey such an order. Trump could however try to steal such information and sell it later on. Donald Trump has guaranteed millions in loans that he has little chance to repay, so I wouldn't be surprised if he tried to sell American secrets, especially since Mother Russia's collection methods are frequently on the harsh side. 😉

    That seems to be the speed the GOP runs at these days. TV guru's trying to run the most powerful nation on earth. Maybe Howard Stern will run too. 🙄

    While Donald Trump, furious over his humiliating loss to Joe Biden threatens to sue and fire - almost everybody - his Democratic counterpart President elect Joe Biden spent today in virtual meetings with his panel of medical advisors, with the aim of curbing the deadly COVID 19 pandemic that killed nearly a quarter million Americans this year. None these top medical experts include family members, personal friends, or media figures. When Joe takes office in January the full weight of our government will be brought to forward to fight this virus and the economic damage it has done, rather than dismissing it as a "hoax"

    Thankfully America has elected a work horse, and not a show horse -

    I was a bit disappointed in how it turned out and I won't be watching to completion. I cannot recommend the series to friends/family, perhaps a good reminder of why I don't like Netflix creating a generation of binge-watchers.

    Chess is not about taking green pills and skipping school. 🙁

    Please pardon my nitpicking, but Bobby Fischer skipped school a lot, and he was a rather strong player. Green pills?--well, it's just a fictional story.

    In the USA, chess seems held in much lower popular esteem than, say, golf or tennis.
    Apart from cultural bias, there's no intrinsic reason why professionals who teach
    chess should be paid much less than those who teach golf or tennis.

    100% agrees on both points.
