McConnell’s gonna rain hell down on Trump now, and by that I mean when a reporter asks him “did Trump lose your Senate majority?” He’ll mumble, “Yes, I think that’s right,” and then everyone but Cruz, Hawley, and Tommy Tuberville will get in line and pretend Trump never happened.
But remember McConnell still has his 6-3 GOP SCOTUS majority
Ok fine Cruz and Hawley will slink back in line, too. You’re on your own Tommy.

The Grim Reaper coming now for Trump
"The voters, the courts, and the states have all spoken. They've all spoken. If we overrule them, it would damage our Republic forever."
McConnell: "The election actually was not unusually close. Just in recent history, 1976, 2000, and 2004 were all closer than this one. The electoral college margin is almost identical to what it was in 2016."

Trump on his SCOTUS noms: "They rule against me so much. You know why? Because the story is I haven't spoken to any of them since virtually they got in. But the story is they're my puppet...they hate that it's not good on the social circuit..."

This move also opens up a DC Circuit seat to elevate Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson so to better position her for Breyer’s seat

Gonna be wild when the Oracle's eyebeams turn his hopes at retaining the presidency into that scorched dude in the suit of armor Atreyu has to step over
Of course, Alito could just put this PA thing out of its misery by himself at this point, with the other Circuit Justices acting alone to put out the other fires coming up from the federal cases in the other states.
