During his first interview since losing the election, President Donald Trump continued to spread his election conspiracy theories, telling Fox News viewers on Sunday that the election was “rigged” against him. But his baseless claim was swiftly shut down by Fox News host Eric Shawn.
Trump repeatedly told Fox host Maria Bartiromo that the election was stolen from him and suggested that the FBI could be “involved” in the plot.
Bartiromo declined to push back against the falsehoods, but Shawn tried to set the record straight several hours later, debunking each of Trump’s allegations — from claims about ballot “dumps” to accusations that votes were flipped by Dominion Election Systems voting software.
“All this despite the fact that his campaign has failed to prove any of this in court,” Shawn said. “In fact, your government, election officials, experts and others — many of the Republican — including Trump-appointed officials say that the president’s claims are false and unsubstantiated.”
“The president pronouncements have caused the president’s supporters to doubt the veracity of the election,” he added. “Critics say his claims are unsupported, reckless and incendiary.”
He added: “It seems that we have a president who, he can’t wrap his brain or mind around the fact, he can’t process that someone who he thinks is so inferior to him won the election,” the Fox News host concluded.
