Donald Trump returned to Fox News for a primetime interview.
It did not go as planned.
And Donald Trump said one word about the Supreme Court that made Laura Ingraham freeze.
At one point in the interview, Ingraham asked Trump about the Democrats’ dangerous H.R.1/S.1 legislation that would mandate universal mail-in voting, enable ballot harvesting, and would gut voter ID and other election integrity laws.
Trump railed against the bill and noted that it would codify the slap dash election practices that took place in 2020 where state courts and election officials illegally changed vote-by-mail procedures by bypassing the state legislatures.
Former President Trump continued on saying that he won the 2020 election and that the Supreme Court did not have the “courage” to step in and take on the lawsuit brought by Texas, arguing that Pennsylvania’s unconstitutional change to vote-by-mail laws disenfranchised millions of Trump voters.
“What they did was absolutely disgraceful, and if you look at the numbers, the numbers were vastly in favor of us in the presidential election. It was disgraceful that they were able to get away [with] – the Supreme Court did not have the courage to do what they had to do,” Trump stated.
Ingraham wanted no part of this discussion and said she did not want to “relitigate” the past and pressed Trump to look forward and commit to agreeing that any Republican candidate for President in the future needs to have their legal strategy prepared well in advance.
“Speaking as a lawyer, we are not going to relitigate the past tonight,” Ingraham stated. “But speaking as a lawyer, I think, going forward, I think any candidate running for office has to have an impeccable legal strategy in place before — like come along before the election takes place, because a lot of people saw a lot of problems coming, verification problems coming, but I don’t think the legal situation was in place, and that hurts everybody along the way.”
But Trump would not let go of the point and insisted that the Supreme Court should have taken up the case.
“No, the courts did not want to enforce it,” Trump added. “You know that, Laura. You know exactly that. And the Supreme Court, when you had Texas and 18 states, the Supreme Court said they don’t have standing. The Supreme Court didn’t want to hear it.”
Ingraham once again tried to move on, stating there were “a lot of Republicans on that court.”
Fox News is facing a billion dollar lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems, Inc. for statements made on air about the company’s machines allegedly changing votes from Trump to Joe Biden.
Ingraham may have wanted to avoid legal trouble by trying to divert Trump away from making any claims that may have touched on Dominion.
