  • And how frustrated is Joe Biden about the progress with transition?

  • You know, Sophie, it's exactly four years to the day that Barack Obama welcome Donald Trump to the White House and said, How can I help you?

  • Is there anything I could do to make the transition easier?

  • Nothing like that is happening now on.

  • I thought Joe Biden's voice today was of a bedside doctor holding the hand of the Republican patient and saying, I know you've been through a terrible shock.

  • You will come to terms with it sooner or later.

  • He said that the Republican leadership was mildly intimidated by Donald Trump mildly, I would say they are knee knocking Lee scared of Donald Trump and that's why they are going along with this whole recount business.

  • The president himself is tweeting out saying watch for a massive ballot counting abuse.

  • We're a week on from the vote on that massive abuse.

  • What was said, Yeah, I think that's really interesting.
