Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis on Friday received tough questions from Bill Maher on HBO’s “Real Time.”
Maher asked about how Trump may have come close to admitting defeat on Friday.

Ellis said Trump had no change in his demeanor on Friday.
Maher argued we have free and fair elections in America.
“We don’t know that,” Ellis said.
Maher repeatedly tried to bring facts to the conversation, but Ellis largely repeated discredited talking points from the campaign.
Ellis kept falsely claiming that the campaign is prevailing in court.
“Just stop it,” Maher said. “Just stop.”
Ellis repeatedly refused to accept that President-elect Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential race.
WATCH: Melania Trump goes maskless as she participates in White House Christmas tree delivery
First Lady Melania Trump declined to wear a face mask as she was receiving this year's White House Christmas tree.
In White House video released on Monday, the first lady can be seen without a mask while accepting delivery of the tree. However, masks were worn by everyone else seen in the video.
The White House has been criticized for allowing COVID-19 to spread at events where attendees are not required to wear masks. At least two "super spreader" events have already taken place at the White House.
The First Lady's Office has said that Hanukkah and Christmas celebrations are expected to take place with smaller crowds.
The Republican Party has already burst at the seams in the wake of Trump’s defeat: conservative columnist
Almost three weeks after Election Day — with President-elect Joe Biden having won 306 electoral votes and defeating President Donald Trump by more than 6 million in the popular vote — Trump has yet to concede and continues to claim, without evidence, that the election was stolen from him through widespread voter fraud. Some prominent Republicans, including Sen. Mitt Romney, are urging Trump to acknowledge Biden's victory, while others won't say a word against the president. And conservative Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, in a November 23 column, argues that these divisions with the GOP need to become a litmus test — and that Republicans who refuse to accept the election results should become pariahs.
Some conservatives are becoming apoplectic as the lunatic antics of the Trump legal team continue unabated
The lunatic antics of the Trump legal team continued unabated over this past weekend. After his mysteriously oozing press conference last Thursday, Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani kept an uncharacteristically low profile. Jenna Ellis, his partner in the "elite strike force," took to Twitter to insult longtime Republican pollster Frank Luntz, accusing him of "micropenis syndrome," but beyond that she too stayed quiet. They left the public appearances to Sidney Powell, the member of the team best known as former national security adviser Michael Flynn's least competent attorney.
