For much of the day on Friday, Donald Trump sent out a helpful tone. The president sent multiple tweets about the “courage” it would take for the Supreme Court to overturn the will of the voters. But at around 6:00 on Friday, the Court announced that they wouldn’t be taking up the ridiculous Trump-backed Texas lawsuit.
On Friday night, the White House was holding a Christmas party. As usual, the event didn’t follow CDC guidelines as hundreds were in attendance. But those hundreds didn’t get the chance to see Trump. After the announcement from the Supreme Court, the president wasn’t seen for the rest of the night.
The New York Times Maggie Haberman tweeted last night, “At the White House Christmas Party, guests were informed about 10 minutes ago that the president won’t be joining them to make remarks.”
