President Donald Trump continues to deny the reality that President-elect Joe Biden defeated him in the 2020 election, firing off bizarre lies about widespread voter fraud and launching legal challenges to the democratic process in a number of states.
Trump's efforts to unconstitutionally secure a second term are almost certain to fail, but it's less certain that faith in the centuries-old American electoral process will be preserved among Trump's supporters, many of whom are under the collective delusion that widespread voter fraud is rampant enough in the United States to tip a presidential election by hundreds of thousands of votes.
Despite this threat, some of the President's supporters are defending this denial of reality.
Among them is conservative radio host Geraldo Rivera, who assured his followers that he had a phone call with Trump and determined that he would do the "right thing."
While Rivera may feel safe assuming that Trump is doing the right thing, Trump's continued refusal to concede is already disrupting the functionality of government.
General Services Administration (GSA) leader Emily Murphy refuses to sign the necessary paperwork allocating resources like funds and office space to the incoming Biden administration to coordinate a smooth transition.
Trump's critics told Rivera that Trump is already doing the wrong thing, and has been for some time.
Rivera's "certifiction" typo wasn't lost on anyone either.
President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will be inaugurated on January 20th.
