After his failed campaign for reelection to the presidency, President Donald Trump is still refusing to concede defeat to President-elect Joe Biden, with Trump and his campaign baselessly claiming widespread voter fraud on a scale large enough to tip the election to Biden.
The Trump campaign's months-long effort to undermine faith in the democratic process has only grown more unhinged since news outlets projected a Biden victory on Saturday.
On Monday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany violated the Hatch Act yet again to speak at a press conference on behalf of the Trump campaign. McEnany continued to claim widespread irregularities in ballots across the nation without elaborating on the evidence they claimed to have.
McEnany went on to say that Democrats were hell-bent on undermining the election, saying:
"[Democrats] take these positions because you are welcoming fraud and you are welcoming illegal voting."
There is no evidence that widespread voter fraud exists and Trump's own commission to study it reached the same conclusion.
For this reason, even the conservative Fox News network cut away from McEnany's presser, with host Neil Cavuto saying he couldn't let McEnany make these claims without evidence.
"Whoa, whoa whoa, I just think we have to be very clear, she's charging the other side as welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back that up, I can't in good [conscience] continue showing you this."
People were pleasantly surprised to see Fox News, which has repeatedly set the stage for the perpetuation of the President's lies, cut away from the presser.
Others thought Fox's interjection was too little, too late.
Despite the Trump camp's complaints, President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris are expected to take the oath of office on January 20.
