They're shameless.

It seems that, unsurprisingly so, their embarrassing loss in the 2020 presidential election has done absolutely nothing to staunch the Trump team’s willingness to blatantly and shamelessly lie to our faces at every given opportunity, in an attempt to further their own agenda and delusions.

Ever since losing the election, Donald Trump and his people have downright refused to participate in a peaceful transition of power to President-Elect Joe Biden and his team. In fact, they’re downright refused to accept their loss at all. But as their lawsuits, litigations, and court filings continue to blow up in their faces over and over again, because this election was as legitimate as ever and they have nothing to stand on in court, the Trump team has been pretty damn desperate to find some sort of excuse for their refusal to pass the baton.

Recently, Trump’s current press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, claimed in a press briefing that Trump would not be participating in a peaceful transition of power between his administration and Joe Biden’s because the Obama administration did not give them a peaceful transition of power when he took over.


“It’s worth remembering that this president was never given an orderly transition of power. His presidency was never accepted,” McEnany declared. Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani parroted these claims.

But here’s the thing — Donald Trump was given the most peaceful transition of power anyone could ask for. As a matter of fact, he literally said so himself.

Take a look:

He literally THANKED Obama for the peaceful transition of power he received as the incoming president.

Just because the people of America hated and continue to hate your guts, does not mean you were deprived of the traditional process in this nation. In fact, I give Obama props. Because I don’t know how he did it.
