It’s been two days since President-elect Joe Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 election — and President Donald Trump has reportedly been coping by downing large amounts of fast food.
The British Daily Mail tabloid reports that the atmosphere in the White House has grown incredibly toxic as the president and his inner circle remain in denial about his defeat at Biden’s hands.
In particular, the tabloid says that Trump will consider Biden a “phony” president and will boycott his inauguration in January, despite the fact that defeated 2016 rival Hillary Clinton nonetheless attended Trump’s inauguration four years ago.
Additionally, the smells inside the White House have reportedly become more unpleasant.
“Insiders described the atmosphere inside the West Wing as ‘manic, exuberant, energised and toxic,’ with some staff lighting rose-scented candles in an attempt to soften the environment — and to combat the smell of fast-food delivered to the President and his inner circle,” the publication writes.
One source tells the tabloid that Trump is “hell-bent on creating a narrative that the election was fraudulent and so Biden is not legitimate” and said that “believes there was a conspiracy against him from day one of his presidency — with the Russian influence hoax, the fake impeachment and now the fake election.”
GOP ripped for ‘bad faith and cynicism’ after Trump’s effort to overturn the election loses — again — in court
President Donald Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election failed again in court on Saturday.
"The PA Supreme Court dismisses the case brought by U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly that sought to overturn last year’s law creating no-excuse mail voting and to throw out those mail ballots cast in this election," Philadelphia Inquirer correspondent Jonathan Lai reported Saturday. "This is the case the Commonwealth Court had earlier blocked certification in."
Trump had been tweeting about the case after returning from his third day in a row of golf.
Georgia Senate runoff descends into a food fight on Small Business Saturday
One of the two U.S. Senate runoff elections in Georgia turned into a figurative food fight on Saturday.
The eyes of the nation are on the Peach State as it holds two January runoff elections that will decide control of the U.S. Senate. Following the November elections, Republicans have 50 Senate seats to 48 for Democrats. However, if Democrats win both races, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will be able to cast the tie-breaking vote.
Democrat Jon Ossoff, who is challenging Sen. David Perdue (R-GA), spent small business Saturday on the campaign trail and visited a vegan burger joint, CNN's DJ Judd reported.
CNN panel lights up Trump over ‘the greatest hypocrisy’ of his presidency
President Donald Trump received harsh criticism on Saturday for golfing while continuing to push conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election, which Trump lost to President-elect Joe Biden.
"In Wisconsin, President-elect Joe Biden has just picked up more votes in the state's recount. Remember, this is a recount that was requested by President Trump's campaign in its failing attempt to overturn the election results," CNN's Boris Sanchez reported. "The final count gave Biden a more than 180,000 vote edge over his rival in Milwaukee County and certified his victory."
"By the way, the recount cost millions of dollars, so the Trump team spent millions to lose even harder," he added.
