Published

Despite the fact that the results of the presidential election are still in limbo and have yet to be certified, a growing number of Republican senators are going ahead and accepting Trump’s defeat by referring to Joe Biden as “president-elect.”

The latest individual to join that particular party is Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

Rubio, who lost in the 2016 presidential primary to then-candidate Donald Trump, joined a small group of Republican senators to refer to Biden as “president-elect” while the president has refused to concede the race. Since the election, the Trump campaign has filed a handful of lawsuits in battleground states across the nation that have been projected to Biden.

Rubio made the reference on Monday when asked by Capitol Hill pool reporters what he thought of the reports that Biden is considering independent Maine Sen. Angus King to be the next director of national intelligence in his administration.

“Well, that’ll be the president-elect’s decision obviously,” Rubio answered, according to NPR. The senator was asked about his use of the term “president-elect,” and he responded, “Ultimately that’s what the results, the preliminary results, seem to indicate. You certainly have to anticipate if that’s the highest likelihood at this point. But obviously the president has legal claims in court, and he’ll continue to pursue those, and if that changes, obviously, it’ll be something we’ll have to deal with.”

The other GOP senators who have opted to accept the victory of Biden over President Donald Trump are Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Ben Sasse, and Mitt Romney.

Romney accepting Biden’s “victory” isn’t all that shocking. He’s never really been a big fan of Donald Trump and was probably tickled pink to find out the mainstream media called the election in favor of the former vice president.

Still, this election isn’t over yet. There’s a lot of litigation still pending and some investigations and recounts that are happening. Until things are certified and made official, the results are up in the air and anything could happen.

Obama: My Admin Didn’t Pursue Reparations Due to the ‘Politics of White Resistance’

Ummm, okay then.

No black person with any self-respect would ask for reparations from taxpayers who had nothing to do with slavery. That being said, a lot of black people would love reparations – despite living in a country where they can become a multi-millionaire if they work hard enough. From The Daily Wire: Former President Barack Obama told his podcast co-host, Bruce Springsteen, that he would have liked to pursue reparations for slavery as part of his presidential agenda, but that the “politics of white resistance” made the issue a “non-starter.” Obama and Springsteen recently launched a podcast together where the pair discuss how to pursue “unity” among Americans and forge friendships across party, class, and racial lines. The podcast is billed as two friends from polar opposite backgrounds coming together — Springsteen from a working-class New Jersey upbringing and Obama from a childhood spent in Hawaii and later, in Chicago — but both Springsteen and Obama are now wealthy Democrats. Obama blabbered, “And what I saw during my presidency was the politics of White resistance and resentment. The talk of ‘welfare queens’ and the talk of the ‘undeserving’ poor. And the backlash against affirmative action. All that made the prospect of actually proposing any kind of coherent, meaningful reparations program struck me as, politically, not only a nonstarter but potentially counterproductive.” From Daily Wire: Former first lady Michelle Obama demonized tens of millions of Americans on Saturday after news organizations declared Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 election—despite the fact that ballots are still being counted and the Trump campaign has filed lawsuits in several states—claiming without evidence that those who voted for President Donald Trump voted to support “lies, hate, chaos, and division.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141018480578567 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141020510625797 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141021647269888 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141022570131457 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141023979270145 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141025808134144 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141665821061122 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141667414904833 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141669021425664

He is most likely responsible for the deaths of countless Americans in his state, due to poor COVID-19 policies. He’s also facing allegations of sexual harassment. If this guy was a Republican, he would’ve been forced to resign long ago. Luckily for Andrew Cuomo, the MSM is on his side. Here’s the scoop, via New York Post: A former aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday provided new details to back up her claims of sexual harassment — including an allegation that New York’s top elected official kissed her “on the lips” without warning inside his Manhattan office. Lindsey Boylan — now a Democratic candidate for Manhattan borough president — made the stunning allegation in an essay posted on the Medium website. Boylan said the incident took place after her 2018 promotion to be Cuomo’s deputy secretary for economic development and special advisor to the governor — a job she initially turned down “because I didn’t want to be near him.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/status/1361406820712140802?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1361406820712140802%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fgov-cuomo-now-blaming-experts-staff-for-bringing-covid-into-nursing-homes%2F https://twitter.com/dcexaminer/status/1361406777036845062?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1361406777036845062%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fgov-cuomo-now-blaming-experts-staff-for-bringing-covid-into-nursing-homes%2F https://twitter.com/phillyrich1/status/1361409907170435076?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1361409907170435076%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fgov-cuomo-now-blaming-experts-staff-for-bringing-covid-into-nursing-homes%2F MORE: https://twitter.com/JaniceDean/status/1361411492218867712 https://twitter.com/JaniceDean/status/1361409204758736907?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1361409204758736907%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fgov-cuomo-now-blaming-experts-staff-for-bringing-covid-into-nursing-homes%2F https://twitter.com/JaniceDean/status/1361412427137634307?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1361412427137634307%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fgov-cuomo-now-blaming-experts-staff-for-bringing-covid-into-nursing-homes%2F
