Sen. Marsha Blackburn called Biden the president-elect and Harris the vice president-elect

but her office later said she 'misspoke'

Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee in a Friday interview on ABC News Live seemed to acknowledge that former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris were the winners of the 2020 presidential election.

"I have not spoken with the president-elect," Blackburn, a known ally of President Donald Trump, told ABC News anchor Juju Chang during a live appearance Friday. "We did have the vice president come to the floor, the vice president-elect come to the floor this week to cast a vote. I was presiding at the time. Didn't get to speak with her."

Then, her staff said it was a mistake.

"She simply misspoke it's nothing more," Abigail Sigler, a campaign spokesperson for Blackburn, told The Tennessean after the outlet published an article about Blackburn's statement. Later in the Friday interview, Blackburn claimed that Trump would've won reelection if "every legal vote is counted," a reference to Trump's baseless allegations of voter fraud in states that he lost.

2. Trump is a loser and a criminal.

Let the GOP go down in flames with him.

3. I'm sure when she was congratulating Harris on the Senate floor

She was telling her, "look, I have to play this stupid game a couple of weeks longer so I don't get rocks thrown through my office in Nashville. Don't take it as anything other than a shameful act I have to put on for as long as Trump and Giuliani do."

8. Oops

I missed that, but should have figured, I guess. Blackburn is known for her strict right wing orthodoxy.

4. Almost all of the republicans in office

afraid of trump. Many are compromised in one way or another, like being part of the whole corruption of the trump administration, maybe some Russian money, who knows what all they are involved in.

Others know that trumps base of morons will do whatever he says, and they are afraid of losing the moron vote, which the need to win any election they have coming up.

They have put "trump" ahead of their party, and most of all the country. They took and oath to protect the U.S.A.from foreign AND DOMESTIC attacks. They have failed miserably!

7. They are like the crowd of wannabes afraid of becoming a target of The Queen Bee.

They must have a lot of self loathing for having to acknowledge in the quiet alone moments how deeply pathetic they are.
