Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume was aghast at reports that President Donald Trump was pressuring Attorney General Bill Barr to prosecute Joe Biden.

The president appeared Tuesday on Fox News, where he complained that his attorney general had not bowed to House Republican requests to appoint a special counsel to investigate corruption allegations against Biden and his son Hunter.

“We’ve got to get the attorney general to act,” Trump told Fox News. “He’s got to act, and he’s got to act fast. He’s got to appoint somebody. This is major corruption and this has to be known about before the election.”

Trump’s claims are based on an hazily sourced New York Post articles that dozens of former intelligence officials believe are based on a Russian disinformation campaign, and are basically the same allegations the president got impeached over.

“Totally improper,” Hume tweeted about the president’s demands. “And what did he think could be done before the election anyway? Barr will almost certainly refuse, and rightly so.”

The president's General Services Administration (GSA) head Emily W. Murphy may have signed off on beginning the transition process for the Biden administration but he is still pushing his baseless, unfounded claims of voter fraud. Although U.S. election officials deemed the 2020 presidential election "the most secure in American history," Trump continues to insist the general election was rigged.

New Yorker writer Susan Glasser on Friday mocked President Donald Trump for whining about losing the 2020 presidential election while sitting behind a tiny desk.

Appearing on CNN, Glasser said she was amazed that someone as image-conscious as Trump wouldn't realize how weak he appeared on Thanksgiving while ranting about voter from behind a puny desk.
