(Nov. 20, 2020) — At approximately 10:23 a.m. EST, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany announced on Twitter that the White House will hold a press briefing at 12:00 noon.
McEnany did not indicate whether or not she will touch upon the current controversy over who won the 2020 presidential election on November 3, although President Trump has insisted, with the agreement of his campaign’s team of attorneys, that he won by a significant margin and that the process was hijacked.
Attorneys L. Lin Wood, Sidney Powell and Rudolph Giuliani have asserted that when Trump was winning by large margins in such “swing” states as Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania on election night, an algorithm in the Smartmatic software used to calculate those votes was invoked to switch millions of votes from Trump to Democratic challenger Joe Biden.
By November 7, the media anointed Biden “president-elect” and have maintained a state of disbelief at the campaign attorneys’ claims about Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic. To the astonishment of many, Fox News’s Kristin Fisher on Thursday editorialized that Giuliani’s claims are “baseless,” and Tucker Carlson of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” recited a lengthy monologue in which he claimed Powell refused to send him “evidence” in order for him to interview him, including for an “entire week,” if necessary.
Powell’s version of events as told to Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business Network is that she sent Carlson an affidavit not included as one of the campaign’s court filings and “offered him another witness who could explain the math and the statistical evidence far better than I can.”
While Carlson claimed he was “polite,” Powell claimed he was “insulting, demanding, and rude.”
In the presser on Thursday, Giuliani accused the media of routinely lying to its audience and refusing to cover the corruption he and his colleagues say they are uncovering.
This writer notes that the media’s response to Trump’s legal team’s reports, through sworn affidavits from approximately 270 individuals in various states, of widespread and systematic voter fraud, are similar to the claims, later supported by a 5+-year criminal investigation, that Barack Hussein Obama’s long-form “birth certificate” is a “computer-generated forgery.”
