Trump Gives Deranged Interview On Fox & Claims He Won Election


On Wednesday, after the death of longtime right-wing talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, ex-President Donald Trump called into Fox News for his first interview in weeks and repeated the deranged lie that he was the victim of a nationwide election-rigging scheme that was responsible for Joe Biden’s documented presidential election victory. Biden is working at the White House, and Trump is living at his own company’s resort in Palm Beach — and he’s still apparently convinced that he is the rightful winner of the 2020 presidential election! The depth of self-delusion here is just — wow.

Asked about his post-election conversations with Limbaugh, Trump said as follows:

‘Rush thought we won, and so do I, by the way. I think we won substantially, and Rush thought we won, and he thought it was over at 10 o’clock, 10:30, it was over, and a lot of other people feel that way too, but Rush felt that way strongly, and many people do. Many professionals do. And I don’t think that could have happened to a Democrat. You would have had riots going all over the place if that happened to a Democrat. We don’t have the same support at certain levels of the Republican system.’

Listen to his utterly deranged comments below:

To be clear, at this point, in order to support Trump’s theory that he is the rightful winner of the presidential election, he’d likely have to believe that Congress, the federal government, the military, and who knows what else are full of secret fraudsters. Congress formally certified Biden’s electoral college victory, and the military assisted with the presidential inauguration in the wake of rioting at the Capitol on January 6 that was inspired by Trump’s cuckoo lies about the 2020 election. No court anywhere in the country ever even partially accepted the idea that the election was rigged. Yet, Trump continues to spread this conspiratorial garbage. It’s a sight to behold.

Considering the fact that the entirety of the presidential transition process has played out at this point, the imaginary election fraud that Trump claims is responsible for his exit from the White House would require the cooperation of untold thousands and thousands of people across the country and across virtually all meaningful levels of government. If this fraud really happened, then where is the evidence? Can these people even answer basic questions like who was in charge of the imaginary fraud? Was it Hillary Clinton? Barack Obama? Space aliens? The fact that Fox aired this garbage — again! — is a disgrace.
