President Donald Trump on Tuesday fired the Department of Homeland Security official who had rejected Trump’s claims of widespread voter fraud.
Trump announced on Twitter he was firing Chris Krebs, the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, and directly tied it to Krebs’ statement that said there “is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.”
“The recent statement by Chris Krebs on the security of the 2020 Election was highly inaccurate, in that there were massive improprieties and fraud,” Trump said in a tweet that also repeated other baseless conspiracy theories about the election and was flagged by Twitter as “disputed.”
“Therefore, effective immediately, Chris Krebs has been terminated as Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.”

Obama Slams Trump With Most Brutal Put Down Yet
Barack Obama is attacking Donald Trump and the Republicans for trying to make false accusations of unfair elections. It’s a really slippery slope, he notes.
In an interview with “60 Minutes,” the former president broke his silence on Trump’s false allegations of election manipulation, telling Scott Pelley that he was disturbed by the vast number of Republicans who were going along with Trump’s claims and humoring him.
Obama argues Republicans are not only seeking to discredit President-elect Joe Biden and his new administration, but society as a whole.
Furthermore, Obama claims that what Trump and the GOP are doing is placing America on a “dangerous course.”
As you remember, Trump declines to concede the election. And Obama reveals what he feels is behind Trump’s reluctance to accept that Biden prevailed.
Here’s what else he said:
“I’m more troubled by the fact that other Republican officials who clearly know better are going along with this, are humoring him in this fashion. It is one more step in delegitimizing not just the incoming Biden administration, but democracy generally. And that’s a dangerous path.”
Then Obama did another interview where attacked Trump’s lack of congratulating Biden on his election win.
Because if you recall, Bush congratulated Obama when he won his election.
Here was Obama’s words:
“When Donald Trump won, I stayed up until 2:30 in the morning and I then called Donald Trump to congratulate him. His margin of victory over Hillary Clinton wasn’t greater than Joe Biden’s margin over him.
But if you are listening to some of the talk radio that Trump voters are listening to, if you’re watching Fox News, if you’re getting these tweets, those allegations are presented as facts.
So you’ve got millions of people out there who think, ‘Oh yeah, there must be cheating because the president said so.’”

Thousands of Trump Supporters Gather in DC to Protest Election
A week after the election named for Joe Biden, thousands of President Trump backers assembled in the nation’s capital on Saturday to unfairly say that the campaign had been taken from the guy they loved—who quickly agreed to accept them in person.
Not long after 10 a.m., Trump drove down Pennsylvania Avenue in his motorcade, welcoming the celebrating protesters—nearly all without masks—who rushed to Freedom Plaza to catch a peek.
The President, who declined to admit or encourage the formal transition to begin, grinned and waved from the car window as crowds packed the street to pursue him.
“He drove right past me. I saw him. He waved right past me,” one man said, squatting to collect himself.
A group of women huddled around their phone, looking at a video of Trump’s appearance near a Walt Whitman quote inscribed in the stone beneath them: “The President is there in the White House for you, it is not you who are here for him.”
As his most ardent fans remained in Washington to fight for what many of them considered to be among the most important causes of their lifetimes, the president headed to Trump National in the Virginia suburbs for a round of golf.
