By now, everyone is aware of the Big Lie that Donald Trump didn’t lose the election, mainly because it’s been a part of the news cycle essentially every day in the more than 220 days since Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were declared the winners. Trump’s loyal minions continue to aggressively push the Big Lie, to their own potential detriment, but it won’t stop them from continuing to attempt to influence the outcome of elections from now on.
While Republicans work hard on gerrymandering and suppressing voting rights, they’re also laying the groundwork to do the same thing in the 2022 midterms and 2024 Presidential elections: deny the outcomes if they don’t like them, and get their base to keep pushing to obfuscate any Democratic agendas.With Mitch McConnell declaring he’ll block any potential Supreme Court nominee from the Biden Administration, the obstruction is glaringly obvious and will continue to plague the President as he attempts to undo the damage done by the former guy.
