  • he couldn't stand the feeling of losing a match.

  • President Donald Trump on Monday once again falsely claimed that he won the November election at a ceremony in the Oval Office to award the Medal of Freedom to wrestler Dan Gable.

  • He won 117 consecutive matches and lost only one.

  • Well, you know, in politics I 12 so I'm too, and Oh, and that's pretty good, too.

  • But we'll see how that turns out.

  • So far, his efforts to overturn the election results have not turned out well.

  • And the lawyer spearheading his legal challenges, Rudy Giuliani, was hospitalized after testing positive for co vid 19.

  • Rudy is doing well.

  • I just spoke to what he is doing very well, no temperature.

  • And he actually called me early this morning.

  • He was the first call I got.

  • Now he's doing very well.

  • Meanwhile, two judges on Monday rejected lawsuits led by former Trump campaign lawyer Sydney Powell to de certify President elect Joe Biden's victories in Michigan and Georgia and declared Trump the winner in those states over unfounded claims of voter fraud.

  • In Michigan, US District Judge Linda Parker of Detroit said the people have spoken, adding quote, This lawsuit seems to be less about achieving the relief plaintiffs seek and more about the impact of their allegations on people's faith in the democratic process and their trust in our government.

  • In Georgia, U.

  • S District Judge Timothy Baton of Atlanta said quote, They want this court to substitute its judgment for that of 2.5 million Georgia voters who voted for Joe Biden and this, I am unwilling to dio continuing to make debunked claims of a stolen election is hurting our state.

  • Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffles Burger, a Republican, announced that his state's results were re certified on Monday following a hand recount and a formal recount requested by the Trump campaign.

  • I know there are people that are convinced the election was fraught with problems, but the evidence, the actual evidence, the fax, tell us a different story.

  • But a majority of Republicans in recent opinion polls have said they believe Trump won the election and that it was stolen through voter fraud, despite the fact that state election officials have said there is no evidence of such fraud.

  • In the meantime, the Trump campaign has raked in a fortune in donations for what it calls an official election defense fund, raising more than $200 million and counting since Election Day.

  • The fine print makes clear that most of the money would go to priorities other than election lawsuits, including retiring the debts of Trump's campaign.
