President Donald Trump’s campaign lost again in court on Saturday.
Trump was urged to “stop the shenanigans” after the ruling.
“Huge loss for Trump in the big federal court challenge. Scathing opinion. Calls it meritless. This thing is way over,” former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal explained.
University of Texas law professor Steve Vladeck described the ruling as a “total shellacking.”
As expected, Judge Brann has dismissed the Trump campaign’s broad-based challenge to Pennsylvania’s election results, including its effort to throw out *all* mail-in ballots. And he has a few choice words for Trump’s lawyers along the way.

UC Irvine law and political science professor said he expected such a result.
From the judge on the merits: "Plaintiffs’ only remaining claim alleges a violation of equal protection. This claim, like Frankenstein’s Monster, has been haphazardly stitched together from two distinct theories in an attempt to avoid controlling precedent."

Marc Elias, who is leading the legal effort for Democrats, explained how he saw the ruling.
For non-lawyers, this is what a complete ass-kicking of the president's legal effort looks like.🥳 pic.twitter.com/uGrTVHT0LX

Here’s the best way to pry Trump from the White House — according to a professional hostage negotiator
President Donald Trump is still refusing the concede that he lost the 2020 presidential election, which has prompted some speculation over whether the Secret Service will be forced to drag him out of the White House on January 20th.
In an interview with the Boston Globe, retired NYPD homicide detective Alfred S. Titus, Jr. said that the best way to coax Trump to leave would be to remind him of how great his life was before he decided to run for office back in 2015.
Trump-loving congressman turns himself into a laughingstock with a few deranged tweets
The first thing you should know about Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona is that he shouldn’t be confused with the famous movie villain from “Ghostbusters.”
One of them has been described as a “sadistic, shapeshifting, apocalyptic, cosmic entity.”
The other spelled his name differently and wasn’t a registered Republican.
Paul Gosar is no relation of Gozer the Gozerian. But he’s doing his best movie-villain schtick as part of a cottage industry of loyal subjects vying to carry on the manic mantle of Trumpism.
Trump turned to Giuliani after his top attorneys refused to get involved in his post-election legal battle: report
A new report from ABC News documents how President Donald Trump decided to put Rudy Giuliani in charge of his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election after his own top lawyers told him he was unlikely to prevail.
According to ABC News' sources, White House Counsel Pat Cipollone, as well as longtime attorney Jay Sekulow, both gave Trump pessimistic assessments of his chances of prevailing in court with lawsuits to throw out hundreds of thousands of votes in Michigan and Pennsylvania.
