President Donald Trump isn’t exactly taking his recent election loss well. He continues to obsessively repeat the claim that fraud plagued the process, despite the total lack of meaningful evidence for this idea. On Friday, Trump claimed on Twitter that “Biden can only enter the White House as President if he can prove that his ridiculous “80,000,000 votes” were not fraudulently or illegally obtained” — which actually simply isn’t correct. Biden, in his personal capacity, doesn’t have to “prove” anything about the votes that went to him. Authorities around the country, from local election officials to the Department of Homeland Security, have already confirmed that there’s no meaningful evidence of any widespread, systematic fraud plaguing vote tallies.

Trump’s above-cited tweet went up the day after the outgoing president admitted in front of reporters that he would leave the White House if a majority of the electoral college votes for Joe Biden — which is exactly what’s presently on track to take place. Trump appears to be trying to downplay the significance of his admission that he would leave the White House in the wake of an official Biden victory in the electoral college, but he can’t erase the fact that he’ll soon have to leave the White House, since a Biden electoral college victory is in the cards. In reality, Trump’s team has come nowhere remotely close to overturning enough of the results to hand Trump a win, no matter their endless clamoring.

On Friday, Trump also complained about a coordinated message from Sinclair-owned news stations — but the Sinclair Broadcasting Corporation is conservative and on his side! The coordinated message that local news stations around the country delivered was a screed against so-called fake news, although the broadcasting execs tried to make the remarks sound slightly more levelheaded than the president’s own attacks against the press. Trump, apparently, didn’t even bother to study what he was looking at before confidently proclaiming that “Freedom of the Press is gone, a thing of the past” because of the unified messaging. Again — this unified messaging was in his favor!

On Friday, Trump also proclaimed that “the 2020 Election was a total scam,” adding that his team “won by a lot (and will hopefully turn over the fraudulent result)” — but despite the president’s confidence, there’s no meaningfully conclusive evidence for this claim. Trump also shared a video clip in which an audio clip of a monologue from the critically panned 2002 movie Poolhall Junkies has been placed alongside footage of lions. In the clip, a movie character who is discussing lions says, in part: “It’s too late to be scared, it’s time to kill” — which is disturbingly unhinged messaging from the president of the United States. The implication seems to be that Trumpism is like the lion — or something.
