Vox Popoli: Fake News pleads for surrender

The demoralization campaign has begun in full earnest.

President Donald Trump's team is struggling to decide who will have to tell him he's lost the election as Joe Biden appears on the cusp of securing the White House. Biden took the lead in Pennsylvania and Georgia Friday morning as votes were counted overnight. There is no path to victory for President Trump without those states.

But Trump has told allies he won't concede should the race be called for his Democratic rival.  

So discussions have begun about an intervention with the president – who would go in and tell him he’s lost and it’s time to concede. Names being floated include the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and his daughter Ivanka Trump, both of whom serve as advisers in the White House, CNN reported.

Members of the Republican Party are also worried the president won't go quietly and are discussing taking action of their own.

Don't fall for it. Notice how they're always trying to get you to quit. Because that allows them to claim victory without having to defeat you. Remember that your demoralization is the entire point of the exercise. Liars lie. That's what they do, so don't be surprised when they do it, and don't fall for it.
