Rivera reacted to Joe Biden’s speech by saying the President-elect is right and that it is over, and he said he wants “the president, my friend, the current president, the 45th president to understand it is over.”

“The longer we drag this out. The more we damage the fabric of our democracy,” he said. “It also damages the legacy of President Trump, who should be taking a victory lap right now celebrating the vaccine that he almost single-handedly forced the scientific community to get ready to save millions of lives.”

Kirk continued to insist there are “very good questions” millions of Americans have about the election.

Legal challenge after legal challenge has been rejected all across the country, including by Trump-appointed judges, and as Kirk tried to say “there are still plenty of pending legal challenges,” Rivera jumped in to say, “That is so dishonest.”
