Maybe it was Michigan certifying the vote, maybe it was SCOTUS refusing to meddle further in the Pennsylvania ballot issue, maybe it was Mitch McConnell on the phone saying, “Fer crissakes, give it up already.” We may never never know. In all events, Donald Trump has stated that he will allow Emily Murphy to do her job and let the transition proceed.
…fight, and I believe we will prevail! Nevertheless, in the best interest of our Country, I am recommending that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same.

Trump is always a day late and millions of dollars short. In this case, it’s only a few weeks past the time any sane person would have called it a day, so maybe we should be grateful.

Now Joe Biden is being referred to as the “apparent president-elect.” it’s progress. It’s a good thing; especially when you’re dealing with lunatics.
