Brian Kilmeade Insists Donald Trump Won the Election Because His Supporters Took a Poll
Fox News host Brian Kilmeade is still struggling to wrap his head around the fact that President Donald Trump lost his reelection bid to Joe Biden, despite the Trump Administration having certified Biden the president-elect of the United States.
On Wednesday morning’s edition of Fox & Friends, which is Trump’s favorite show, Kilmeade launched a bizarre rant insisting that Trump actually won the election because: a) his supporters said so in a poll and b) people are still showing up to his rallies.
Kilmeade introduced his harebrained theory, however, with an admission that Trump’s efforts to overturn the will of the voters have failed.
“Let’s go back and talk about what President Trump is doing. According to our own Kristin Fisher, the West Wing is almost empty, that many people thought these legal approaches were gonna be successful but they clearly weren’t. That press conference last week wasn’t well-received and no proof came this week,” Kilmeade said, referring to Team Trump’s bogus allegations of voter fraud.
Kilmeade then turned to a survey conducted by CNBC on Monday which shows that a vast majority of Trump’s followers refuse to accept that he lost.
“If you’re having trouble accepting it, there’s no doubt about it. According to a recent poll by CNBC, 73 percent if you consider Trump the legitimate winner. Those are Trump supporters. Only three percent accept Joe Biden’s victory, 24 percent not sure,” said Kilmeade.
Polls, of course, do not determine the results of an election. Votes do, and Biden received six million more than Trump. Biden also won the Electoral College 306-232.
But Kilmeade was not finished attempting to conjure up any excuse to incense his audience. Next, he claimed that Trump really did win beacuse Biden is boring and Trump sells out his rallies.
“Now, a few reasons why. Number one, we saw what we saw. We saw thousands of people come out in subfreezing weather to go out and see the president of the United States, and they seem clearly energized,” Kilmeade said.
“We also saw an incredible ground game like never seen before from the RNC, and we saw the DNC say, ‘we’re just not going to do that,'” said Kilmeade. “And then we saw Joe Biden come out and give uninspiring speeches to a few dozen cars where he screamed virtually the whole time, and they say, ‘how did that guy win?'”
Kilmeade continued, claming that “we still haven’t quite found out how he won, but it looks as though the Electoral College will certify the second week of December and that will be the case. But people, Steve, are continuing to mock the president for saying, ‘I simply want to make sure these results were right.'”
There is no evidence of voter fraud. Trump got his butt kicked by Biden.
