‘I’m Gonna Push Back’: Ronna McDaniel Grilled Over ‘Stolen’ 2020 Election

NBC host Kristen Welker pressed former RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel about her past statements suggesting the 2020 presidential election was not legitimate.

“Ronna, ultimately, there were 250 audits,” Welker said Sunday on Meet the Press. “They never found any corruption.”

“Did you not have a responsibility as the RNC chair to say before January 6th that the election is not rigged, that Donald Trump lost given that there were audits, given that there were more than 60 court cases that occurred all across the country, and that Donald Trump lost?” she asked.

“The reality is Joe Biden won,” McDaniel replied. “I have always said, and I continue to say, there were issues in 2020. I believe that both can be true.”

“But you acknowledge you acknowledge those what you’re talking about did not rise to the level in any way of overturning any of the state’s election results,” Welker pressed.

“You know there were precincts that didn’t align,” she continued. “That’s a fact. That’s not propaganda. That’s a fact. He’s the president. He’s the legitimate president.”

Welker interrupted: “Let me just let me just stop you because you did say you just said Joe Biden’s a legitimately elected president. This is the first time you have said this.”

The NBC host then presented a video clip of McDaniel telling Chris Wallace that Biden did not win fairly.

“Ronna, why has it taken you until now to say that?” Welker wondered.

“I’m gonna push back a little because I do think it’s fair to say there were problems in 2020,” McDaniel quipped. “And to say that does not mean he’s not the legitimate president.”

Welker pointed out, “Even the Supreme Court, Ronna, didn’t take up concerns about the election results in Pennsylvania and a slew of other states.”
