Tweet thread from Steve Schmidt

I hope the primer below is helpful in decoding the latest in poisonous nonsense from @GOPLeader Kevin McCarthy who now says he accepts that Joe Biden is the President of the United States. Since most of the assembled media reacted to this rhetorical sleight of hand like defanged Cobras mesmerized by the 🐍snake handler's flute I think it deserves a bit unpacking.

1. Joe Biden IS the POTUS.

2. Every American should share equally in the boredom and genuine disinterest around what @GOPLeader does or doesn’t accept. Who cares. There is no relevance.

3. The question that matters is this. “ Do you recognize, acknowledge and assert without qualifications that Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump decisively in a free, fair, and legitimate election?
