When even Fox News knows there is no evidence for former Republican President Donald Trump's Big Lie—his 2020 election fraud claims—you know there's nothing more to be said.
But Republican Alabama Representative Mo Brooks hasn't yet gotten that memo, it seems.
Brooks, one of Trump's most ardent supporters, had a meltdown during an interview with Fox News over the weekend when the channel's Sandra Smith reminded him there is no merit to Trump's false claims.
See Brooks' hissy fit below.
Brooks is facing a runoff in his nomination campaign for the U.S. Senate against fellow Republican Katie Britt after Trump rescinded his endorsement of Brooks back in March in retaliation for Brooks saying it was time to move on from the 2020 election.
It seems that rescission must have really stung, because when Smith questioned him about the 2020 election on Fox News Sunday, Brooks rapidly went into meltdown mode.
He told Smith he and the former President had several conversations in recent months about the possibility of overturning the 2020 election and reinstating Trump as President—an absurd and categorically unconstitutional notion.
It seems that last part—the part about it being impossible—is what made Trump blow Brooks off.
Now Brooks seems to be in groveling mode.
As he told Smith:
"I can understand him wanting to [overturn the election], OK?"
"He was robbed, in my judgment, in 2020, in his judgment he was robbed, and so I can understand that desire."
"The conflict was when I would explain the law does not allow us to do that.”
The problem, of course, is Trump wasn't robbed at all—he simply lost.
By a lot.
Trump supporters seem to forget he also lost the popular vote in 2016—only managing to capture the presidency thanks to electoral college votes.
Trump also failed to garner a 50% approval rating for his entire presidency—except for a handful of occasions on only the conservative Rasmussen polls. Even then, he barely cleared 50%.
The idea such an unpopular President would win a popular votehe lost 4 years earlier defied logic.
And when Smith pointed this out—well, suffice to say Brooks wasn't having it.
Throwing up his hands, he shouted at Smith:
"Oh no, that’s wrong! I don’t know why you people in the media keep saying that, but that is absolutely false!"
When Smith pointed out that a long list of lawsuits about 2020 election fraud have been thrown out of courts all over the country for lack of evidence, Brooks was no less curt.
"The courts are not the final arbiter of who wins a federal election contest. Congress is."
And Congress already made its determination so...
Go fish, Representative Brooks.
On Twitter, people couldn't believe how unhinged the interview was.
And some felt like Brooks' comments didn't bode well for the future.
It will be interesting to see if Brooks' tirade wins Trump over to re-endorsing him.
But he definitely has competition.
