Though it came late in the game, hats off to the Trump administration for achieving its greatest achievement.
According to the Dept. of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the 2020 presidential vote was a triumph not only for Joe Biden, but for America’s democracy.
“The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history,” it said. “There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.”
The DHS unit also took aim at sore losers who make the outrageous claim there was widespread fraud, or that the election was somehow rigged.
“While we know there are many unfounded claims and opportunities for misinformation about the process of our elections, we can assure you we have the utmost confidence in the security and integrity of our elections, and you should too."
Well done, Mr. President. You did your country proud. We will remember you once you leave Washington on Jan. 20.
Congratulations to Jennifer O’Malley Dillon for being the second woman to serve as campaign manager for a winning presidential campaign.
The Democratic operative played a major role in president Obama’s two campaigns, giving birth to twins a week after Election Day 2012. Prior to taking over the Biden campaign, Dillon headed Beto O’Rourke's primary effort.
The Boston Globe profiled the Massachusetts native, noting that her “under-the-radar style” stands in sharp contrast to people like Karl Rove and Kellyanne Conway, the first woman to run a winning presidential bid.
Dillon, a co-founder of Precision Strategies in DC, is certainly now on the political radar.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who predicted Trump would win re-election in a landslide, must be happy the campaign is over and that her days in Washington are almost over.
McEnany hit a new low on Nov. 12 when she referred a question about Trump’s transition plans to the White House. “I haven’t spoken to the president about that; that would be a question more for the White House," she said.
Did she mean the physical building? Isn’t she still White House spokesperson?
