Peter Navarro, who serves as White House adviser on trade, said Sunday on Fox News that President-Elect Joe Biden will be an “illegal” president if he’s inaugurated on January 20 of next year.
Having just published a fact-free 36-page report on alleged election fraud, Navarro told Fox host Pete Hegseth:
“It’s very, very clear. The Democrat Party had a conscious, coordinated strategy to stuff the ballot box across these six battleground states with absentee and mail-in ballots. And they were willing to bend and often break the laws.”
Of course, Navarro neglected to mention that not a single court has said that there was any cheating or stuffing of ballot boxes. And those allied with Trump have failed to provide any evidence other than wild conspiracy theories that have no basis in fact or reality.
Navarro then added:
“What we really need here is a full investigation of what’s going on. Because we run the risk of going in to Inauguration Day inaugurating and illegal, illegitimate president that public polls show the American public are skeptical about the fairness and integrity of the election.
“And by the way, the greatest democracy in world history, if we can’t run a free and fair election, all hope is lost.”
The polls actually show that it’s only those who support Donald Trump who are the least bit “skeptical” about the fairness and integrity of the election. But those pro-Trumpers are in the minority, as Biden won by 7 million votes and by a landslide in the Electoral College.
Trump’s own cyber security agency called the 2020 election the “most secure in American history.” And shortly after he said that, Trump fired him for telling the truth.
All hope is lost when the facts are replaced with bogus conspiracy theories and those in power seek to subvert the will of the people. That’s how dictators are born and democracies die.
January 20 cannot possibly arrive soon enough.
