WATCH: Loeffler Can’t Explain Why Georgia Runoff Vote Won’t Be Rigged
Georgia Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler, facing a Jan. 5 runoff election against Rev. Raphael Warnock, has been singing from Donald Trump’s “the election was rigged” song sheet and maintaining that he won the presidential vote in her state.
The Trump loyalist was widely criticized for her robotic performance in the Dec. 6 debate against Warnock in which she only seemed capable of spouting forth talking points instead of answering the questions she was asked.
It happened again Monday morning as she appeared on Fox & Friends. Host Steve Doocy asked her a very straightforward question: “We’ve heard from the president said that the election was was stolen from him, that it was rigged in November. So for the people of Georgia who are thinking of early voting, what can you say to them? They’ve heard the election was rigged in November, so why vote now?”
Her non-specific response: “We’ve built a robust organization to make sure that every legal vote is counted and every illegal vote is thrown out.”
Doocy wasn’t buying it. “So what’s different now than it was in November where it’s no longer rigged?” he asked.
Loeffler proceeded to offer up a word salad that included phrases like “bi-partisan poll watchers” and “signature matching” before declaring, “If we vote we will win. If we don’t vote, we will lose the country. We are the firewall to socialism.”
Take a look – and pay particular attention to co-host Brian Kilmeade’s eyes as Doocy asks his questions.
