White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany threw a hissy fit in response to President-Elect Joe Biden condemning outgoing President Donald Trump’s “unprecedented assault on democracy” on Monday after the Electoral College sealed his election victory.
538 electors gathered across the country to cast votes affirming the election of Biden as the nation’s next president. 306 votes were cast for Biden while Trump only received 232, thus once again confirming that Biden is the winner of the 2020 Election, which several courts have also done by dismissing over 50 lawsuits filed by Trump seeking to overturn the results.
During his speech after all the votes were cast, Biden took particular aim at Trump’s desperate scheme to try to stay in power.
“In this battle for the soul of America, democracy prevailed,” Biden said. “We the people voted. Faith in our institutions held. The integrity of our elections remains intact. And so now it is time to turn the page. To unite. To heal.”
“306 electoral votes is the same number that Trump and Pence received when they won in 2016,” Biden continued. “At the time, Trump called his Electoral College tally a landslide. By his own standards, these numbers represented a clear victory then and I respectfully suggest they do so now.”
“In America, when questions are raised about the legitimacy of elections, those questions are resolved through the legal processes,” Biden declared. “And that’s precisely what happened here. All the counts were confirmed … none of this has stopped baseless claims.”
Indeed, Trump has tried every dirty trick in the book to try to steal the election, including false election fraud allegations, demanding state officials overturn the results or pick electors who will cast votes for him instead of Biden, and a slew of court challenges that were dead on arrival. And Trump still isn’t done trying to overturn it. He had fake electors cast illegitimate votes for him in swing states and plans to use House Republicans to deny Biden’s victory.
Biden could have ignored Trump’s scheme, but that would be ignoring the threat to our democracy. That’s why he condemned it.
“It’s a position so extreme we’ve never seen it before, a position that refused to respect the will of people, refused to respect the rule of law and refused to honor our Constitution,” Biden said. “Thankfully, a unanimous Supreme Court immediately and completely rejected this effort. The court sent a clear signal to President Trump that they would be no part of an unprecedented assault on our democracy.”
“In America, politicians don’t take power — the people grant it to them,” Biden pointed out. “The flame of democracy was lit in this nation a long time ago. And we now know that nothing — not even a pandemic —or an abuse of power — can extinguish that flame.”
Here’s the video of Biden’s remarks via YouTube:
Unable to keep her mouth shut and demonstrating that she should never be allowed to work in politics or the media again, McEnany channeled her boss and hurled wild and false accusations at Biden in ALL-CAPS.
Joe Biden should not ever utter the words “unprecedented assault on democracy.”
THIS was an “assault on democracy” ⬇️
❌ THREE YEAR fake Russia investigation
❌ BASELESS impeachment
❌ RIGGING election with mass mail-in voting w/ no safeguards
This is a DIVISIVE speech!

The Russia investigation concluded that Russia did interfere with the 2016 Election. It also revealed that Trump’s team had a lot of dubious contact with Russians and busted Trump on ten counts of obstruction of justice.
Trump was impeached for trying to extort Ukraine into opening a sham investigation against Biden to hurt his election chances. He also obstructed Congress.
And, again, there is no evidence of election fraud and the accusation of “no safeguards” has been thoroughly debunked.
This was not a divisive speech by Biden. He merely called Trump out for being the real divisive force in our country. Everything Trump has done and is doing is about trying to divide the nation, and McEnany is being just as divisive. She should be ashamed of herself, especially since bearing false witness is a sin. If she were a true Christian as she claims this would not have posted this tweet.
