Unfortunately, the House will seat the 140 GOP representatives pledged to object to the election certification. 17 days left.
Earlier, I filmed new Congresswoman @mtgreenee.
She is wearing a mask that says “Trump Won.”

CNN's Tapper Shreds GOP's Attempts to Object to Election Certification: 'Bloodless Coup' https://t.co/C8S01LK6m6

President Trump has once again demanded that the Supreme Court invalidate millions of votes in four states, nullifying the election and keeping him in power illegitimately.
Indeed, Trump was unintentionally explicit on this point: He predicted that Joe Biden’s presidency will be corrupt, and commanded the court to overturn the election results on that basis, in the process making this command with no legitimate legal or constitutional basis at all.
Incredibly, even now, some are *still* handwaving away the GOP effort to overturn the election as merely "performative."

Asked about President Trump's claim coronavirus deaths are exaggerated, Dr. Fauci says, "The deaths are real deaths….Go to the hospitals. See what the health care workers are dealing with…That's real. That's not fake." https://t.co/l8wLZq7Xmy

This is of course complete horseshit. Just as with the PPE disaster back in March/April, Trump's federal response has been to let every individual state fend for themselves without funding or guidance.
In other words, there is no federal response. https://t.co/UwtSeofWR9
