Election fraud facts on golf course?

It seems most people in the USA think Donald Trump lost the 2020 election. This includes a good number of courts, including the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, that have thrown out his filings of election fraud.

One even had the audacity to state that facts of said fraud or corruption were required. Idle gossip lost again. So sad.

So what has our loser been doing since the election? According to various sources, he has visited Trump National Golf Course in Virginia nine times and played a “confirmed round” on six of those occasions. That’s nine times in three weeks. When has he had time for “presidenting”? There’s a pandemic going on, as well as usual domestic and international affairs. Oh, and I forgot about those court filings.

Dentist’s warning after healthy dad-of-seven who didn’t drink or smoke dies aged 37

A dentist has warned that thousands of Brits may be unknowingly living with mouth cancer after a "healthy" dad-of-seven died from the disease. Alan Birch, 37, lived a healthy, active lifestyle and did not drink or smoke but died from an aggressive form of mouth cancer in April. The self-employed plasterer, from Wirral in Merseyside, was diagnosed with mouth cancer in 2018, and had to have 90 per cent of his tongue removed, Liverpool Echo reports. Despite Alan undergoing both radiotherapy and chemotherapy, the cancer returned each time and specialists told his devastated family there was nothing more they could do for him. Alan and his partner of 12 years, Debbie McDonough, decided to get married in February, but he tragically died a few weeks later in April.
