  • Several White House officials have long touted President Donald Trump's 306 Electoral College votes in 2016 as a "landslide" victory.
  • Trump himself has repeatedly referred to it as a "landslide" over the years.
  • But now that President-elect Joe Biden has secured 306 electoral votes, none of them are congratulating him.
  • Instead, Trump is refusing to concede.

Tucker Carlson apologized on-air for making a false accusation of voter fraud in Georgia
  • Fox News host Tucker Carlson apologized on Friday after a Georgia news station let him know that he had falsely claimed that a dead man voted illegally in the state.
  • The voter in question, Agnes Blalock, is the wife of the late James Blalock Jr., and her registered voter name is "Mrs. James Blalock, Jr."

The White House press secretary said more than 1 million attended a demonstration in support of Trump, but it was more likely thousands
  • White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany significantly exaggerated the number of people who attended a protest in Washington, DC, in support of President Donald Trump.
  • McEnany said "more than one MILLION" people attended the "Million MAGA March" on Saturday.
  • It's unclear exactly how many people attended, but news organizations have pegged the figure at thousands, or tens of thousands — a far cry from 1 million.
  • Demonstrators, including Proud Boys members, showed up to the event in Trump and MAGA merch.
Videos circulating on social media showed attendees wearing and waving MAGA merchandise. Most attendees caught on camera did not wear a mask. Some reporters said the members of the Proud Boys, a hate group as designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center, attended.

Some Proud Boys attendees wore shirts that said "Stand Back, Stand By," a reference to Trump's message to them during his first presidential debate with Biden.

The gathering was called the "Million MAGA March." As the event unfolded, the hashtag #MillionMoronMarch started trending on Twitter.

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment asking about McEnany's exaggerated number of attendees.
