America to Trump: YOU'RE FIRED!

The votes are in, and Joe Biden is the next President of the United States.  Hallelujah!   Live from NBC News:


NBC also shows us live celebrations of Biden's victory across the country:

Biden made this statement at midday after learning of his victory:

I am honored and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in me and in Vice President-elect Harris. In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America. With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation. It’s time for America to unite. And to heal. We are the United States of America. And there’s nothing we can’t do, if we do it together.

The Guardian put it this way:
America has chosen Joe Biden to be the 46th president of the United States. The American people have disavowed four years of a thuggish presidency. They have chosen decency over dysfunction, fact over fiction, truth over lies, and empathy over cruelty. They have rejected the last four years of ugliness, divisiveness, racism and sustained assaults on constitutional democracy. And even as Trump plots legal challenges and levies unfounded claims of fraud, it is clear America is moving on.  Now, the real work begins.

Harris and Biden gave their victory speeches to a "drive-in" crowd tonight in Wilmington, Delaware.  Both were fine speeches.  Biden himself impressed your Head Trucker as being very presidential:  strong, confident, optimistic, and determined to do his best to be the leader of all the people and to heal the divisions in this country.


And I'll close tonight's post with the moving remarks of CNN's Van Jones, who struggles to explain what Biden's victory means to him and many others in this diverse nation:

Me too. As M.P. says, "I feel like I'm back in my America now" - the real America.
