Tapper wasn’t having it after Trump tweeted a fantasy scenario of how he could actually end up beating President-elect Joe Biden. (Trump lost the election, despite his lies.)
If Vice President @Mike_Pence comes through for us, we will win the Presidency. Many States want to decertify the mistake they made in certifying incorrect & even fraudulent numbers in a process NOT approved by their State Legislatures (which it must be). Mike can send it back!

The CNN anchor went through Trump’s post clause by clause, calling out the falsehoods one by one.
Tapper ended his response with a sarcastic dig: “Otherwise, good tweet.”
