Ronna McDaniel, Chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC, also known as the GOP), has finally admitted that President Joe Biden won the 2020 Election—only a little over a year after that election—at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.
McDaniel said on Thursday:
"Painfully, Joe Biden won the election and it's very painful to watch. He's the President. We know that."
She also said that there were "lots of problems" during the 2020 election that the RNC should consider, despite acknowledging Biden.
The Republican Party has been heavily criticizing President Biden in all of their outreach and press materials since his election, but Thursday marked the first time that the Chair finally acknowledged that he actually won the election.
Despite finally admitting that Biden "won", she continued to criticize him during her speech.
McDaniel also talked about how the GOP is dependent on Trump because of the followers he brought to the Republican party.
"If he left the party, we would lose. If he left the party, Republicans would lose. He has built our party. He has added a new base."
The man that McDaniel says her party is dependent on wants to focus on nothing so much as his persistent conspiracy theory about election fraud in 2020, though.
Despite Trump's insistence on pursuing his imaginary election fraud, McDaniel thinks that the party needs to focus all of their energy on Biden in 2022.
"I think every Republican right now should be talking about 2022. I'm not talking about anything else other than what Biden is doing to destroy our country: high gas prices, an open border, an opioid crisis."
"Everybody else can do their own thing, but I think we should be talking about Joe Biden."
This is the first time that McDaniel has admitted Biden's win publicly, and there was no way that Twitter was going to let her get off lightly.

Now the Republican Party has finally admitted what most of the country has known all along: Joe Biden is the 46th President of the United States of America. Not that Trump will follow suit any time soon...or ever.
