Regardless of Donald J. Trump‘s quickly diminishing possibilities of staying an occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., U.S. Sen. John Cornyn nonetheless can not seem to discover the intestinal fortitude to take away his face from the president’s flabby orange posterior.
Though Cornyn has proven latest indicators of a backbone, such his sort-of condemnation of Trump‘s firing of to cybersecurity official Chris Krebs, the Texas Republican is refusing to name Joe Biden the president-elect.
“He is not president-elect until the votes are certified. So the answer to that is no,” Cornyn stated on a name with Texas reporters, in accordance with the Dallas Morning Information. “And I don’t know what basis you or anybody else would claim that he’s president-elect before the votes are certified and these contests are resolved.”
By no means thoughts the truth that the certifications aren’t precisely breaking in Trump‘s favor and that the president’s authorized challenges, led by goo-dripping My Cousin Vinny quote-along chief Rudy Guiliani, have devolved right into a fucking clown present.
Curiously, Cornyn did not appear to have an issue referring to Biden as president-elect on social media shortly earlier than the media name. On Thursday, the senator pasted textual content from a Politico story right into a tweet that stated progressive Democrats have “a hanging message for President-elect Joe Biden.”
No matter what label Cornyn refuses to use to Biden, the presumptive subsequent president has collected 5.9 million extra votes than Trump nationwide. Meaning Giuliani’s probability of proving widespread voter fraud is wanting much less and fewer like a Hail Mary go and extra like a sainthood-worthy miracle.
