Chuck Schumer: ‘The Election Is Not in Doubt’

November 13, 2020

At a joint press conference with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer ignored the fact that the 2020 presidential election is still ongoing and facing legal challenges, asserting instead that a Joe Biden victory is “not in doubt.”

“The election is not in doubt,” Schumer declared, dismissing concerns of voter fraud as “nothing more than a temper tantrum by Republicans.” It is “nothing more than a pathetic political performance for an audience of one: President Donald John Trump,” he added, arguing that Biden’s Electoral College victory has been “secured by several states, where tens of thousands of votes separate the candidates.”

Trump’s “frivolous lawsuits have less than a snowball’s chance in hell of succeeding,” Schumer blustered, accusing the GOP of “deliberately and recklessly sowing doubt about our democratic process.”“The biggest change since Election Day is that Donald Trump, who is not for helping us in COVID and who is against the HEROES bill, has lost. That was an overwhelming referendum by the American people.”

Fact check: to paraphrase Mary McCarthy, every word of Schumer’s apoplectic rant is a lie, including “the” and “and.”
