A British gambler has staked $5 million dollars on President Trump winning re-election in what is believed to be the largest ever political bet.

According to the Sun, the former banker used private bookmakers registered on the Caribbean island of Curacao and was able to secure odds of 37/20, meaning he will receive a $15 million payout if Trump is victorious.

Apparently, the high roller decided to place the gargantuan bet after a private consultation with “Trump camp insiders.”

“Word of this bet has done the rounds and we think it’s the biggest ever made on politics,” one industry source told the newspaper.

According to gambling comparison site OddsChecker, 71% of money wagered on the outcome of the election was in favor of Trump over four hours this morning, a figure that represents a “remarkable” swing according to the site’s head of marketing, Sam Eaton.

“The 2020 election is following a very similar betting pattern to the one we witnessed back in 2016. The closer we got to Election Day, the more money came for Donald Trump,” said Eaton.

It’s normal for part-time gamblers to make late bets on the underdog, which according to the polls is Trump, because they are guaranteed higher returns.

However, according to Paddy Power, the numbers are massive, with 93% of bets being placed on a Trump victory over the last 24 hours.

“Even at the eleventh hour, punters are continuing to back Trump at the odds on offer,” said Ladbrokes’ Jessica O’Reilly.

U.S. Capitol Lockdown Caused by Fire at Homeless Camp

Inauguration rehearsal cancelled.

A security alert at the U.S. Capitol which briefly caused panic, prompting a lockdown, turned out to be caused by a fire at a nearby homeless camp.

“Loud speakers at the Capitol warn of an “external threat”. Smoke can be seen in the distance with guards running,” tweeted a journalist on the scene.

After the lockdown was announced, people in the vicinity were told, “No entry or exit is permitted, stay away from exterior windows, doors. If outside, seek cover.”

The fire prompted an inauguration rehearsal to be cancelled and the participants to be evacuated.

It has now been revealed that the emergency lockdown was triggered “out of an abundance of caution” over a fire that started at a nearby homeless encampment.

An image posted to Twitter shows the fire, which occurred under the 695 bridge but was soon extinguished, allowing the lockdown to be lifted.

The state of emergency is a response to the storming of the Capitol earlier this month and alleged threats posed by armed extremists to the inauguration of Joe Biden.

However, despite defense officials telling the media that they fear an “inside attack,” they had to acknowledge that there was “no evidence of any threats.”

Fox News Ratings Plummet After Trump Supporters Abandon Network

Fox News’ ratings have plummeted in the aftermath of Trump supporters abandoning the network, with the broadcaster registering its poorest showing since September 2000.

The Daily Beast reports that Fox News finished third to both MSNBC and CNN for three days running last week, their worst performance in over 20 years.

“On Wednesday, CNN averaged 5.941 million total viewers and 2.074 million in the key 25-54 demographic for the entire day, compared to MSNBC’s 4.543 million viewers overall and 1.106 million demo audience and Fox News’ total audience of 3.464 million and 852,000 in the demo.”

“The disparity increased on Thursday, with CNN drawing 3.854 million total viewers, MSNBC averaging 3.321 million, and Fox pulling in 1.935 million for the day. CNN also led in the demo, nabbing 1.193 million with MSNBC finishing second at 653,000 and Fox bringing in the rear at 384,000.”

“The streak continued on Friday as CNN finished first once again with 3.121 million total viewers, followed by MSNBC’s 2.816 million and FNC’s 1.702 million. In the total day demo, CNN drew 878,000 viewers, compared to MSNBC’s 512,000 and Fox News’ 320,000. MSNBC, meanwhile, experienced its highest-rated week ever, averaging a total of 3.1 million viewers.”

Much of the viewership loss is due to Trump supporters switching to competing conservative networks like OAN and Newsmax due to the perception that Fox News abandoned its implicit support for Trump over the last 2 years.

Host Chris Wallace’s debate moderator performance, during which he was seen to protect Joe Biden while shutting down Trump, also infuriated MAGA types.

With viewers defecting to Newsmax and OAN, both those networks are now being targeted by CNN in a transparent effort to have its competition silenced.

“We are going to have to figure out the OAN and Newsmax problem. These companies have freedom of speech, but I’m not sure we need Verizon, AT&T, Comcast and such bringing them into tens of millions of homes,” guest Alex Stamos told Brian Stelter yesterday.
