During a panel discussion on all the conspiracy rumors Donald Trump and his advocates are making about election fraud, CNN’s Jake Tapper pointed out that “Trump’s spawn” — presumably Don Jr and Eric — are likely the worst and that they wouldn’t pass muster on Fox News.

Speaking with co-hosts Dana Bash and Abby Phillip, the CNN host said their tweets looked like the “Crayoned” ravings of someone on drugs.

Following a discussion about Sen. Mitt Romney (R – UT) making a statement harshly criticizing the president after Thursday’s comment by the Utah senator that Tapper called “mealy-mouthed,” the conversation turned to conspiracy-minded tweets that are coming from the Trump team.

According to CNN’s Phillip, “…there is no evidence of fraud at all,” despite what is coming from the Trump administration.

“And it is worse when you watch Fox News where many of the president’s advisers, supporters, campaign aides go on television, speaking to the president’s supporters every day, reinforcing falsehoods, frankly fake manipulated videos on social media, these are all things that are corrosive to democracy and not enough republicans are being specific about what the problem is,” she continued.

“If you’re upset about what you see on Fox, and you have every right to be, check out the Twitter feed of the president’s spawn because it is like rantings in Crayon by somebody having an LSD trip,” Tapper suggested. “These are claims that are so wild that they wouldn’t even make it — forget Fox — they wouldn’t make it to Fox Business where, you know, all sorts of facts go to die.”

A Republican congressman from Pennsylvania has cast doubt on his own legitimacy to serve in Congress with his failed lawsuit attempting to overturn the 2020 election results.

Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) attempted to have the courts block certification of the 2020 election results, but his effort was rejected by the Pennsylvania Supreme 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."

What can the left expect from a Biden-Harris administration? Pretty much nothing

On Nov. 7 of this year, the United States let out a collective roar that rippled across the nation, resonating the crowds of blue-clad people swelling the streets and the squares, and causing buildings to tremble as those inside broke out the champagne and began to dance. The celebrations lasted long into the night. For those few precious moments, it felt as though a curse had been lifted, a nightmare abated. Trumpism had ground itself to a resounding and decisive halt and it seemed that political space on the left, and on the center ground, had finally begun to open again.
