Laura Ingraham: To Say Biden Won the Election at This Point 'Constitutes Living in Reality'
Fox News’ Laura Ingraham is directing a message to her viewers: At this point, to say President-elect Joe Biden won “constitutes living in reality.”
During her segment on Monday night, Ingraham said, “As unpleasant and disappointing as these past three weeks have been to so many of us, as much as we wish things were different, this is where things stand tonight.”
Her remarks follow after the Trump administration gave the green light to the Government Services Administration (GSA) to let Biden begin the transition process.
Ingraham said during “The Ingraham Angle,” “Unless the legal situation changes in a dramatic and frankly an unlikely manner, Joe Biden will be inaugurated on January 20.”
“To say this constitutes living in reality,” she added. “And if I offered you a false reality, if I told you that there was an excellent, phenomenal chance that the Supreme Court was going to step in and deliver a victory to President Trump, I’d be lying to you.”
This comes in contrast to Fox News opinion hosts sharing baseless widespread voter fraud claims. Fox News was one of the major outlets that projected Biden as the winner.

President Donald Trump tweeted on Monday evening, “Our case STRONGLY continues, we will keep up the good fight, and I believe we will prevail! Nevertheless, in the best interest of our Country, I am recommending that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same.”
However, Trump later took to Twitter to write, “We are moving full speed ahead. Will never concede to fake ballots [and] ‘Dominion’.”
GSA Administrator Emily Murphy wrote in a letter to Biden’s team on Monday that her decision to allow the transition to begin does not officially declare Biden the winner of the election but she has “determined that you may access the post-election resources and services described in Section 3 of the Act upon request.”

This came nearly three weeks after Election Day and over two weeks since major news outlets projected Biden as the winner. Trump has yet to concede the race and has made unsubstantiated voter fraud claims.
