Sunday’s Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked House Minority Whip Steve Scalise the simple question: “Do You Think Donald Trump stole the 2020 election?”
The correct answer is two letters for the average person. The correct answer is three letters for those who are either not grounded in reality or unabashed liars. Scalise should have responded in less than a second. In his vain search for a solid ground between a yes or a no, Scalise responded, responded, and continued to respond for over two minutes. Wallace tried to force Scalise to give a definitive answer, but he failed.
Scalise continued to talk about how the election was difficult because certain states operated according to rules set by courts, not the legislatures. He didn’t mention that Covid-19 emergency election rules were in place in his own state and that they were imposed by a federal judge who ruled that the Republican-controlled Louisiana Legislature’s refusal to accommodate voters at risk of serious illness or death from Covid “is likely unconstitutional because it imposes an undue burden on Plaintiffs’ right to vote.”
He also neglected to mention that the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, whose building could as well be inscribed “Abandon every hope, ye Liberals who enter here,” refused a post-election request by Republican leaders for federal judges to make similar rulings in the future.
