On Friday evening, the United States Supreme Court here in Washington D.C. furiously threw out President Donald Trump’s frivolous and meritless lawsuit originally filed by Texas that sought to overturn the results of the presidential election in 4 key states – Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Georgia.
Trump had been deceiving people that he won an election he lost. The election was clearly and overwhelmingly won by Joseph R. Biden Jr., a Democrat.

By spreading conspiracy theories to raise money with his false and fictional stories, Trump was able to deceive many people around the world that he either won or will win at the Supreme Court.
But that was only on the social media. In the court room, his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, who had not practiced law for decades, was unable to establish any proof of massive voter fraud. He told the judges repeatedly that the fraud was so sophisticated it was undetectable and could not be proven.
On Hannity show on Fox News last night, he vowed to pursue other cases in the lower court.
It was the second time in a week that the Supreme Court had rejected Trump’s and the Republicans’ attempt to stage what was essentially a coup after they were defeated in the November 3 presidential election.
On Monday, the Electoral College will meet and formalize Biden’s election win. On January 20, 2021, Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will be sworn into office.
The new President will then repeal many of Trump’s executive orders, and begin cleaning up the mess Trump is leaving behind.
Any tweet by Trump, any more lie from now on will just be inconsequential.
That’s what you need to know at this very moment. I know I may be breaking your heart if you misguidedly love him, but you can choose to believe me or continue to chase shadows.
