not this failed liberasl meme again. i know you will not read the truth and will just keep repeating what you are told but for others here is the truth. the meme on trump vs the stock market ignores the money he has given away to family, charities, etc it also ignores that the taxes paid.

That is a popular lie that various alt-left sites say however the truth is that the term was coined years before that, go check google, set the dates and search.
It was originally used as shortcut the the full term "alternative right" and described various groups that were did not want to be associated with the main right group. white nationalist groups did start applying it themselves afterwards.

Comment Is edge changing an actual issue? (Score 2) 261

I use windows 10 on a couple of computers all set with chrome as the default and have never had an issue with edge somehow being my default. The only time I ever see edge is because I do use one web site that only works with it and if click on some of the default tiles it uses edge but then it covers up and remove much of the UI for the purpose of display just that tile info that you would not recognize it as a regular browser.

Comment Media is the problem and summary shows why. (Score 1) 460

What trump said was correct, from his view you could see what he said and could make the guess of 1 million, you can see that from the pictures taken from the area he was standing looking at the crowd. Him sending out his press secretary to make those comments on saturday were just plain stupid, wrong and lieing.
However the media is at fault for the way they are thought of, they start by picking on statement of "from what I could see, and it looked like" and saying that is a lie; easy to make the case of it being wrong probably not a lie. When during the campaign the previous presidency they would happily accept any statement as the truth from the democrats and continue to do so. If the media had taken a neutral standpoint and done the job of reporting then they could of easily roasted the press secretary for that briefing on saturday and could of made the push to have him replaced and might of had some support from anywhere but the minority.
For the summary the media decided to go back six presidents to show a change in the definition of unemployment, when they could of just used a recent example from obama changing the definition but that is not the story they wanted.

Nope, the US Constitution,20th Amendment, says that the term of the President end at noon and their successors start then. The swearing in is required before he executes any official duties.
For the rest it is just easier to quote the Constitution:
"If, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term of the President, the President elect shall have died, the Vice President elect shall become President. If a President shall not have been chosen before the time fixed for the beginning of his term, or if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President shall have qualified; and the Congress may by law provide for the case wherein neither a President elect nor a Vice President elect shall have qualified, declaring who shall then act as President, or the manner in which one who is to act shall be selected, and such person shall act accordingly until a President or Vice President shall have qualified."
If both were to die then it the House would select an eligible person for President and the Senate the VP. Obama would not be eligible since he already served two terms.
