For anyone who thought a presidential candidate only had to win a state once to chalk it up as a win in their column. For Joe Biden, he’s had to win at least 45 times in a handful of states, as the incumbent president has challenged his win over and over, and so far has only proven that the original call was correct: Biden won Georgia. Today, he did it again.

An actual judge in an actual courtroom had to explain to the president’s attorneys that he cannot overturn an election and that he doesn’t even have jurisdiction to do so. In the written decision, the judge states that:
‘This appeal arises from last-minute litigation that alleges widespread election-related misconduct and seeks sweeping relief. The issue before us, however, is a narrow question of appellate jurisdiction: has the district court entered an order that we have jurisdiction to review? Because the answer to that question is “no,” we must dismiss this appeal for lack of jurisdiction and allow the proceedings to continue in the district court.’
The case brought by the president’s legal team was dismissed with prejudice, meaning that it cannot be brought back to his court for another review. It is the second time that a judge has had to do so, no matter how many times Trump insists he’s going to win these cases. At this point, he’s lost 44 election fraud-related cases, with one temporary procedural win. He still doesn’t appear to be giving up.
Twitter had a lot of fun with Trump’s 44th loss. Read some of their comments below:
