Donald Trump lost another legal challenge on Monday as the Supreme Court finalized its final challenge to the 2020 Pennsylvania postal voting process.
Pennsylvania Governor John Fetterman, who is also running for the state’s Democratic Senate, took the opportunity to ridicule Trump for repeatedly losing Keystone State.
“Apparently, losing once in Pennsylvania wasn’t enough for Trump, so he decided to go to court and lose 68 more times,” Fetterman said, according to MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin. “The former president doesn’t go empty-handed as he received 100% of the dead relative votes in the Commonwealth.”

Trump and his loyalists like to claim that so-called dead voters cast their ballots for Democrats, but the opposite appears to be the case. As Fetterman pointed out, the so-called “dead relative vote” for Trump was overwhelming.
The GOP uses its big lie to restrict voting rights
After Donald Trump led the GOP to a House, Senate and Presidency defeat, Republicans are moving quickly to crack down on voting rights.
As Jason Easley pointed out Monday, the loss of Trump’s Supreme Court will only accelerate the GOP’s efforts to make it harder for people to vote.
Instead of trying to remove white supremacists from the party, the GOP is working overtime to restrict the right to vote for people who vote mostly for Democratic candidates.
After losing the national referendum in seven of the last eight presidential elections, Republicans are doubling Trumpism and voter suppression.
