Trump, with his usual political savvy, came right out and admitted that he’s trying to disenfranchise some 80 million Americans who voted for President-elect Joe Biden.
“We have to turn the election over,” he said. “All we have to do is have some judge listen to it properly.” Yep. With enough money under the table, Trump figures he can get “some judge” to hear his appeals “properly.” But until Trump locates that special judge, he’s logged a historic 1-37 string of post-election legal losses the likes of which America had truly never seen until now.
But that reality didn’t stop Trump from thrilling his acolytes with fantastical tales of “many, many cases” of fraud.
“This election was rigged and we can’t let that happen,” Trump charged for the gazillionth time without providing a shred of evidence. “And this election has to be turned around, because we won Pennsylvania by a lot and we won all these swing states by a lot.” Unless, of course, one consults the Keystone State’s certified vote, in which Biden bested Trump by more than 81,000 votes.
Here’s a brief glimpse of the event Pennsylvania Republicans, Giuliani & Co. teed up for SNL’s next episode.
