It does make the UK's decision to stick with the antiquated system of pencil and paper for voting look like a smart move that also saved us a fortune.
It's hard to hack into a system where there are no computers.

There has never been a US general election result that was found to be genuinely illegitimate, and I'm not even sure that the country has any mechanism to handle such an outcome. It would quite likely prompt the most serious constitutional crisis of our lifetime. This could grow into a far bigger story than Trump's collusion, if it is found that the election result was swung by the intruders.

The problem is even if Trump does score perfect results in tests until he takes a test in public people are naturally going to be sceptical as he regularly sounds like a strawberry floating moron in interviews or speeches and even worse on Twitter.

I'm not at all convinced that the results of Trump's cognitive test are legit, or that Trump even took the advertised test.

The man couldn't even recognize Rudy Giuliani, and he was sat right in front of him!

The thing is it would be so much more believable if he said he got something like 90% but saying he got a perfect score isn't even believable cheating.

He regularly gets the names of entire countries wrong and he's got a team of bloody people and stacks of paperwork to tell him the name.
If I'm going to go live on TV to the nation I'd at least make sure I got the name of Namibia right and didn't go with Nambia but maybe I'm being a bit harsh expecting a world leader to know the names of countries.

The doctor might have been coerced into helping him, too. Trump has access to a lot of secret information, and could easily have looked the guy up and got some dirt on him.

It's just such an implausible result to get. Was he coached beforehand by Ivanka or someone?

Nancy Pelosi is currently giving one of the longest continuous speeches the House has ever seen, in support of DACA:

She's been talking for over 7 hours already, longest continuous speech in the House for over 100 years (maybe the longest ever)! She's 77!

The filibuster rule is really a rather impressive part of US politics as the person can't stop for toilet breaks so going for 7 hours is pretty impressive.
I'm pretty sure they now have to stay on topic as well as if I remember they used to just be able to read out names from a phonebook.

She's just finished speaking now - a 77 year old woman standing for 8 hours 10 minutes (in high heels no less) without any break speaking in support of the children of immigrants in the US, reading their letters to the people who would send them to countries that are now foreign to them - inspiring stuff!

Hope Hicks can pick them! Not only does Donny refer to her as the best bit of skirt Corey Lewandowski will ever have, but she's in a relationship with Rob Porter. Rob Porter who yesterday resigned when news about him beating up two wives broke.

This being Trump's WH, obviously they've known about the allegations for some time but backed him up. And of course, the statement in his defence was crafted by his now girlfriend. :fp:

How Ivanka is said to describe it in Fire and Fury:
An absolutely clean pate — a contained island after scalp-reduction surgery — surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the center and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray.

I've never known anyone to be bald at the back of their head before. As far as I'm aware, that just doesn't happen. It's alway the last place you lose hair from.

I don't know why they didn't use sneaker net to move the data around and keep all the machines off line.

If only he'd discovered Alpecin sooner.

I'm sure when I read about Wayne Rooney's hair transplant they just used the hair from his arse. No, really.
