Donald Trump’s legal team have embarrassed themselves enough to be the most shameful footnote in American history in the future, but their willingness to embarrass the country is also unrivaled. On the day that U.S. electors from all 50 states cast their official votes, with 306 of them going to Democrat Joe Biden and 232 going to Republican Trump, the defeated president’s lawyers were still insisting on Twitter that Trump won and that they will overturn the election once they prove it.

None of these lies really matter at this point. Biden was elected in November and will be inaugurated in January no matter how many times Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, not to mention the current president, demands that democracy be thwarted and their Dear Leader reinstalled to power for four more years. Nearly seven million more voters in the United States made their voices heard, and heard clearly. They wanted Trump gone, whether or not he wants to go.
The real reason that Trump’s legal team is continuing the fight is, of course, money. Trump’s legal defense fund has brought in millions of dollars from hapless supporters who believe that the president can overturn a fair election with no proof of fraud, and Giuliani and Ellis are taking a fair chunk of it. Some of the rest goes to pay off Trump’s campaign debts, and the rest will remain a mystery. It isn’t as if Trump has to report where these donations go like he would during a campaign. Hence, the grift is on.
Twitter, however, wasn’t falling for it. Read some of their comments below:
