“You can count on one hand how many Republicans acknowledged Joe Biden is president-elect. Senators Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, Ben Sasse of Nebraska. The rest here are silent, emboldening the president as he refuses to concede.”
CNN’s ultra left-wing reporter Oliver Darcy added,
“If you watch right-wing media, you would think the election was stolen by corrupt deep state Democrats. If you watch Fox News, that is the message, If you listen to talk radio, that is the message. If you read these far-right websites, the president is promoting that is the message. This matters because Republican politicians they know that the real power players in their Republican Party are Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, Rush Limbaugh. Those are the people who control the Republican Party. them coming out telling audiences this election was probably stolen, Trump should maybe be president-elect again, that desensitizes Republican politicians who need to come out and tell the president what you’re pushing is not true and disinformation.”
What percentage of Democrats congratulated George W. Bush on his win over Al Gore while they were recounting votes in Florida? Zero percent? Incidentally, they SHOULDN’T HAVE congratulated Bush at that point, nor should Murkowski, Romney, Collins, and Sasse have congratulated Biden. Reason being, Joe Biden IS NOT the president-elect yet. There are court challenges happening that could conceivably overturn the election results and in that case, he would never be President. Is it likely that those court challenges will succeed? Given the information we’ve seen publicly so far, no, it is not. Could there be more information they are holding back? Could there be a surprise ruling? Given all the legitimate questions and concerns people have about this election, is it good to have these concerns reviewed by judges? Absolutely. Let the process play out and if Trump loses his court cases, congratulate away, like anything that petty matters in the long term anyway.
