What the country has witnessed since November 3, 2020, when Joe Biden thoroughly trounced the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice, has been Trump dangling his full approval in front of the RNC, threatening viciously to take it away entirely if they step out of line, and the RNC groveling and doing whatever the leader of their party tells them to do. RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel, who dropped the “Romney” because Trump didn’t want to be reminded of McDaniel’s uncle, Senator Mitt Romney, has stuck to the script on Trump’s election lies amidst real threats that Trump would walk away from the party and take his fans with him.

At a breakfast for the Christian Science Monitor in Washington, DC, McDaniel finally admitted, a full year after Trump’s election loss, that Joe Biden really is the president of the United States of America. A woman who once represented a respected political party now serves as a slave to the Trump cult, so she didn’t admit it happily. However, for the first time, she did admit it.
Of course, she tried clinging to the ageism that has become the heart of the opposition to President Biden, saying it was “painful” to watch him lead while the party she represents is headed by a man who said that injecting bleach into people to cure COVID-19 should be looked into.
According to CNN:
‘Painfully, Joe Biden won the election and it’s very painful to watch.’

Still, the admission is a break from the nonsense spouted by the ex-president, who still refuses to admit that, after four years of chaos and even death, he lost the election because people didn’t want him in charge of the country anymore. Admitting he’s a loser seems impossible for him, and seeing McDaniel do so is likely to enrage him. Up until now, the RNC has been willing to go along with his lies.
‘Former President Donald Trump, who McDaniel said remains an overwhelming influence on the Republican Party, continues to push conspiracy theories about the 2020 election with the help of leaders across the GOP’s election apparatus. Earlier this year, the RNC unveiled a “Committee on Election Integrity,” and, on Thursday, McDaniel declined to say whether Trump’s pressure campaign to convince then-Vice President Mike Pence to block congressional certification of Biden’s Electoral College victory was unconstitutional.
‘”I’m not a constitutional scholar,” McDaniel said.’
The irregularities we have seen in Michigan cannot simply be ignored away or brushed under the rug.
They must be confronted and thoroughly examined. @MIGOPChair and I are demanding a full and transparent audit in Wayne County!

It remains to be seen how the tense relationship with the volatile Trump and the RNC, whose credibility has disappeared entirely thanks to the ex-president. After all, Ronna Romney McDaniel only has one job: to get people to vote for the candidates who run for office under her party.
That difficult to do with the current leader of her party, who says:
‘If we don’t solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 (which we have thoroughly and conclusively documented), Republicans will not be voting in ’22 or ’24. It is the single most important thing for Republicans to do.’
In Atlanta, RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel faced questions from skeptical Republicans who bought into Trump's election lies.
In one sharp exchange, a Trump backer quizzed McDaniel on why Georgia voters should bother "when it's already decided." https://t.co/seBPssQyL0
