MSNBC’s Ali Velshi mocked Donald Trump’s failed legal effort to overthrow the 2020 election, saying it was doomed because it relied on “golf, tweeting and Fox News lawyers”.
“The president’s legal strategy is not going well,” said Velshi. “If he had hoped to dismiss the election results from Golf, Tweeting and Fox News attorneys, those hopes are fading.”
The MSNBC host said Trump’s legal challenges, despite being a ridiculous dumpster fire, can still do a lot of damage on the way to the door – and Trump seems ready to do so.

On Friday alone, nine trump cases in three states were either discarded or dropped. Over the weekend, the Trump campaign scrapped most of its main Pennsylvania lawsuit and cleared most of the allegations. Four more cases were dropped today in four states. Even the president’s Twitter feed seems to be struggling to hold out. Yesterday he tweeted in capital letters: “I won the election!” Not even all caps today. Someone is a little low on energy. So the president’s legal strategy is not going well. If he had hoped to throw out the election results from Golf, Tweeting, and Fox News attorneys, those hopes fade. But that doesn’t mean that it can’t do any real damage on the way to the door.
Trump’s legal effort is just another reality TV stunt
Donald Trump’s court losses are increasing every day. As Ali Velshi noted, four cases were dropped in four states on Monday alone.
The Trump campaign litigation is going so badly that even lawyers seem to be running for the hills.
Like his presidency, Donald Trump’s efforts to overthrow that election were caricature and devoid of substantial victories.
It’s just another reality TV stunt by Trump, designed to rid himself of any responsibility for his humiliating election defeat and prepare for another presidential campaign in four years’ time.
All it really did is remind nearly 80 million Americans why they voted to remove Donald Trump from office.
