- Monday night Fox News presenter Laura Ingraham said it was highly unlikely President Donald Trump would win his legal challenges against the 2020 election results and secure a second term.
- “If the legal situation doesn’t change dramatically and frankly in an unlikely way, Joe Biden will be inaugurated on Jan. 20,” Ingraham said on the show.
- He added: “If I were to say that there is an excellent, phenomenal chance that the Supreme Court will take action and bring victory to President Trump, I would be lying to you.”
- Ingraham appears to be the first leading Fox News expert to speak so directly about Biden’s victory, which Fox News itself called on November 7th.
- Trump refused to let the competition in. On Monday, however, he tweeted over a move by the General Services Administration that began the transition process to Biden’s team.

Fox News presenter Laura Ingraham accepted the election victory of President-elect Joe Biden on the strongest terms, telling viewers Monday night that President Donald Trump’s legal challenges to the election outcome are likely to fail and Biden is likely to be the next president.
“As unpleasant and disappointing as these last three weeks have been for so many of us, no matter how much we want things to be different, things are here tonight,” he said.
“Legal challenges continue in many states now. Serious issues related to vote counting, polling access remain. But if the legal situation changes in a dramatic and frankly unlikely way, Joe Biden will be inaugurated on Jan. 20.”
The comments came more than two weeks after Fox News joined other major TV networks and announced the Biden election on November 7th.
Ingraham made his remarks, saying he continues to support the president’s right to challenge the election results in court, but the challenges are unlikely to change the results.
“Now, to say that, that doesn’t mean I don’t think there would be a lot of problems and possible fraud in this election,” she said. “And to say that this does not mean selling the conservative populist movement that I do not know for 25 years here. And that does not mean that I do not agree at all with the right and obligation of the president. That all legitimate legal challenge. “
“To say that this means living in reality,” he added. “And if I were to offer you a false reality, if I were to say that there is an excellent, phenomenal chance that the Supreme Court will take action and give President Trump a victory, I would be lying to you.”
Ingraham first signaled on Nov. 6 that he accepted Trump’s loss — even before most news networks projected Biden’s victory — when he said on his show that there could be an “adverse outcome” in the 2020 election and that Trump must accept his defeat. and calm “if you lose.
However, Ingraham has also consistently supported Trump’s claim of voter fraud. He was recently criticized and ridiculed for an interview with a Nevada poll worker who claimed to have seen the ballots filling out the Biden campaign without providing photographic evidence, according to The Independent.
Ingraham appears to be the first of Fox News’s top experts to speak so directly about Biden’s victory.
Tucker Carlson did not mention Biden’s election victory on Monday night’s show, but rather spoke out against voting by mail, claiming the election was “turned to a candidate,” The Washington Post writes.
Carlson, however, questioned Trump’s lawyer at the time, Sidney Powell, for failing to provide evidence for his allegations of voter fraud, which provoked attacks on the president’s loyalists.
Sean Hannity doesn’t seem to have had a new show on Monday, but his post-election broadcasts included pressure from a conspiracy theory that a “media tube” painted Biden in the best light with a conspiracy and a furious argument that the Socialist Democrats were planning the pressure. Biden as far away as possible.
Trump has also repeatedly refused to agree. On Monday, however, he tweeted the General Services Administration’s move to start the transition process for Biden’s team.
