    1. BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — Demands to stop the vote count. Baseless accusations of fraud. Claims that the opposition is trying to “steal” the election.

    Across the world, many were scratching their heads Friday – especially in countries that have long been advised by Washington on how to run elections -- wondering if those assertions could truly be coming from the president of the United States, the nation considered one of the world’s most emblematic democracies.

    “Who’s the banana republic now?” Colombian daily newspaper Publimetro chided on the front page with a photo of a man in a U.S. flag print mask.

    The irony of seeing U.S. Donald Trump cut off by major media networks Thursday as he launched unsubstantiated claims lambasting the U.S. electoral system was not lost on many. The U.S. has long been a vocal critic of strongman tactics around the world. Now, some of those same targets are turning around the finger.

    Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro laughed as the vote dragged on past Tuesday, briefly breaking into the hymn of his nation’s annual beauty contest on state TV, singing, “On a night like to night, any of them could win.”.... :LOL:

    Kenyan cartoonist Patrick Gathara tweeted that Trump “has barricaded himself inside the presidential palace vowing not to leave unless he is declared the winner,” with a mediator “currently trying to coax him out with promises of fast food.”.... :eek:

    2. It won't be surprising for such nations as Iran, Cuba, North Korea, Cambodia, Venezuela, Syria, etc, long targeted by the US for being "undemocratic" to watch with glee at the political crisis in the US while Donald Trump and his ruling party dump democracy down the drain. They may say: "Look! This is what American democracy looks like. Who’s the banana republic now?" :ROFLMAO:

    Automaric recounts are within the rules. investigations of fraud are within the the rules! Electoral vote IS NOT until 12/15/20. Have patience! If necessary, let Fedeal courts decide!
