President Donald Trump ticked off several lies in just under 60 seconds while visiting his supporters in Michigan on Saturday.

He told his supporters that the press was predicting an astounding “red wave” in November, a fact that even Fox News disputes, with their polls showing Biden leading nationally in the polls. Attacking them as “the fake news media,” Trump said even they were predicting a “red wave” saying that he was very far ahead in the early vote count.

“So, it just came out. We’re leading. What’s that?” he asked as the crowd cheered. “But let’s not talk about it.”

He then claimed that he was voted Michigan’s “Man of the Year,” a claim he has been making since 2016, but the details keep changing.

In 2016, Trump mentioned the unknown award six times during his campaign. After being elected, he kept bragging about it.

“In fact, five or six years before I even thought about running, for whatever reason they named me Man of the Year in Michigan. I said, how come? I didn’t even understand it myself, but I was named Man of the Year,” Trump told a New Hampshire rally last year.

Saturday, Trump claimed he got “Man of the Year in Michigan” twelve years ago. Snopes still labels the claim “false.”

Trump has made an unprecedented attempt to defy the results of the election by refusing to concede, spreading wild theories about stolen ballots and launching baseless legal challenges that have been thrown out by courts across the country.

Answering his first questions from reporters since the November 3 vote, the president moved closer to accepting that he would serve only one term in office before Biden is inaugurated on January 20.

Masks that cover the mouth and nose have proven to be one of the most effective ways of containing the COVID-19 pandemic.

But the politicization of the issue continues to be a major Republican concern.

"Idaho Senate Republicans are setting up their agenda for the upcoming 2021 legislative session. As reported in the Post Register, one of their top priorities is to 'pursue measures in January to limit the governor’s emergency powers.' The immediate reason for this, of course, is Gov. Little’s anti-coronavirus measures," columnist Mike Murphy wrote in the Idaho State Journal.
