On Monday, Pennsylvania’s Democratic Attorney General, Josh Shapiro, hit back at President Donald Trump’s threats that he would be “watching” the state for signs of voter fraud.
“What’s your response to the president, who made those allegations without any evidence at all in your state?” asked anchor Wolf Blitzer.
“He says he’s watching, about the only thing I have seen here in Pennsylvania is that Donald Trump has gone 0-5 in court challenges against us here,” said Shapiro. “Court challenges where he has alleged widespread voter fraud, and yet never was able to back it up with a shred of evidence. That’s why courts have dismissed these baseless lawsuits that he’s filed. Apparently, now that he’s lost in court time and time again, he’s gone into the public square to spin a tale and tell these lies and attack our governor.”
“At the end of the day, I think people are tuning it out,” said Shapiro. “He may have people showing up at these super-spreader events, but the reality is, I think voters have tuned him out. He’s like The Incredible Shrinking President right now. Folks are ignoring him and showing up the polls and voting. I think they’re tired of the tweets. He can’t back up what he says in court. Doesn’t seem like he can back it up even in these ridiculous speeches he gives. And folks want to vote. They want to have an election. And they’re tired of the chaos he keeps trying to inflict on our election process.”
Trump is trying to ‘monetize defeat’ by bilking fans for a personal ‘slush fund’: Ex-GOP lawmaker
Former Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA) on Monday said that President Donald Trump likely knows he lost the 2020 presidential election but is taking one more opportunity to bilk his supporters for cash before leaving on January 20th.
Appearing on CNN, Dent argued that the president is already angling for a new grift after leaving the White House, and he's getting an early start on it by asking fans to donate to his legal defense fund.
‘The president’s legal strategy is in tatters’ and the GOP knows Trump’s coup is failing: NYT reporter
President Donald Trump's attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election are getting crushed in courts -- and more members of his own party are finally saying publicly that it's time for the president to give up his long-shot bid to remain in power.
New York Times reporter Alex Burns told CNN on Monday many Republicans can see the writing on the wall but are still working up the courage to nudge the president out the door.
Lara Trump buried by CNN host for claiming Trump voters don’t ‘feel’ like he lost
Lara Trump appeared on Fox News to further the Trump campaign agenda that the 45th president of the United States, her father-in-law, won the election.
"There are about 74 million people out there who do not feel like the result of this election that has been presented is accurate," she told Fox News host Leland Vittert.
In a recap segment on CNN's Reliable Sources Sunday afternoon, chief media correspondent Brian Stelter responded, "Lara Trump is wrong, by the way, to say that every Trump voter feels that this thing was rigged." Speaking of feelings, he added, "Facts do not care about your feelings ... This conspiracy crap is just like Trump's anti-media enemy of the people smear. It's a slow-acting poison that is crippling the American [body of] politics."
