Donald Trump has lost the 2020 presidential election. The incumbent president received only 232 electoral college votes to his challenger, Joe Biden, who received 306. Trump ended the election with just over 74,000,000 votes, the highest number of total votes in history except for his challenger’s votes, which totaled over 80,000,000. All 50 states have certified their elections. The Supreme Court has refused multiple times to change the outcome for the president.
Clearly, Trump knows that he’s lost.
Trump’s legal team, however, who are reportedly billing him around $20,000 per day to make complete fools of themselves in court and rant to any right-wing media outlet who will listen to them, says that the race still isn’t over, even if there does not appear to be another legal avenue left to take.
Um… Jenna Ellis reacting to SCOTUS news says it’s been a “failure across all three branches of government” and says the “executive branch…changed the rules, and we know that…”

Top legal advisor to the president, Jenna Ellis, said that “all three branches of government” failed in the 2020 elections, but she then mixed state and federal government branches together to somehow explain herself. She spoke to Newsmax from her home, where she’s been quarantined after contracting COVID-19.
Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s “lawyer” and possibly the most embarrassing person alive, also says that the fight is not done, and that he and Trump are discussing new ways to overturn the democratic process. Giuliani also spoke to Newsmax from his home, where he’s also been quarantined after contracting COVID-19.
Just as Trump once said that COVID would stay contained to 15 Americans, and that it would go away in the summer, and that a vaccine would be available to the public before Election Day, Trump is lying about the election, too, and his lawyers are helping him do it.
Twitter expressed their frustration with Trump and his allies. Read some of their comments below:
