Still living in denial, President Trump on Sunday predictably stoked more bogus claims of widespread election fraud as he refused to back down on his already fruitless legal battles contesting the legitimacy of President-elect Joe Biden’s legitimate victory, during a conspiracy-ridden interview on Fox News.

The sitting president has lost dozens of rulings in several states as Trump’s legal team has failed to provide any evidence of widespread voter fraud. Despite General Services Administration chief Emily Murphy finally giving the green light for Biden last week to start his formal transition process, Trump has not conceded and gave no indication of doing so on Sunday morning.

On Sunday, Trump complained to Fox News anchor Maria Bartiromo about judges rejecting his efforts to dispute the election results as he repeated his false claims that the election was somehow stolen from him.

Trump touted that he’d like to file “one nice beautiful lawsuit” as he nonsensically fumed that courts should’ve swayed the election results in his favor simply because he’s still in office.

“They say, sir, you don’t have standing. I say, I don’t have standing you mean as president of the United States, I don’t have standing?” Trump said. “What kind of a court system is this? And the judges stay away from it.”

Trump also griped about losing the battleground state of Georgia by complaining that he is “ashamed” of having previously endorsed Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) because the Trump-aligned governor has “done absolutely nothing” to sway the state’s election results in his favor.

Trump’s unhinged conspiracy-heavy rant on Fox News concluded with him saying that he will throw “125%” of his energy into supposedly rescuing the already sunken ship of his election legal battles.

“I’m going to use 125% of my energy to do it,” Trump said, when asked if he believes that he can prove his baseless claims of votes being tossed. “You need a judge that’s willing to hear a case. You need a Supreme Court that’s willing to make a real big decision, based on everything that it’s not like you’re going to change my mind.”

Trump added that his “mind will not change in six months.” (Biden’s inauguration is in January.)

Trump, who voted by mail in the election, then continued ranting about mail-in voting being a “total disaster.”
