Steve Schmidt on MSNBC (screengrab).

On MSNBC’s Deadline: White House Friday, Steve Schmidt was asked his thoughts on Trumpism and whether or not he thought it would continue after the current president leaves office.

“Oh, absolutely. Look, we have almost 48 percent of this country that’s voted for a statist authoritarian movement with fascistic markers hostile to American democracy, to the rule of law that even rates an individual, that’s a cult of personality.” Schmidt said. “I think that [Fox News’] Tucker Carlson is the frontrunner for the Republican nomination in 2024.”

Schmidt added, “What you are going to see is every Republican candidate will kowtow to the conspiracy that Trump was stabbed in the back by unseen malicious forces of the deep state, that the election was stolen, that it’s illegitimate forever. Forever. More than a majority of the Republican party will believe this was an illegitimate election because they have been poisoned by the [Rupert] Murdoch operation, by OAN, by Sinclair, by the toxic sludge of sewage and crap and disinformation and lies that flows on Facebook into the screens of the American people. And so this is a long-term fight.”

"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.
