Shep Smith, formerly of Fox News, now on CNBC, was still more brutal and detailed. One by one, he recited the demented claims – there’s widespread voter fraud, they’re not letting observers in to watch the counting, he’d bigly win counting only “legal” votes – and, one by one, destroyed them: “That’s simply not true…There is no evidence of that…This is a lie….That is categorically false.” “There’s only words here,” he finally lamented. “No truth.” Things were so batty of course Twitter had to chime in with the hashtag #Trumpmeltdown. The consensus: It’s long been clear the guy who had so much trouble counting the crowd at his inauguration “lacked the intellectual and emotional maturity to handle the presidency,” or even counting votes. But Anderson Cooper won the night. Speaking over a chyron that read, “Without any evidence, Trump says he’s being cheated,” Cooper had his best raised-eyebrows, WTF face on as he pondered the wreckage on display. “That is the most powerful person in the world,” he marveled. “And we see him, like an obese turtle on his back flailing in the hot sun, realizing his time is over.” Goddamn, may it be so.
President Trump just spoke at the White House, as key states continue to count votes.
Shep has the facts: “What the President of the United States is saying, in large part, is absolutely untrue.” #Election2020 https://t.co/E6DBt6OodD pic.twitter.com/HVa87qUCzB
