Laura Ingraham Admits It's Over for Trump: ‘Biden Will Be Inaugurated'
Fox NewsFox News host Laura Ingraham kicked off Monday night's program by delivering the harsh reality to her viewers that President Donald Trump will not remain Commander in Chief, letting them know she'd be peddling them a "false reality" if she claimed the Supreme Court would deliver a victory for Trump.

Acknowledging that the president and his administration have finally allowed the formal transition process to take place with President-elect Joe Biden, the pro-Trump host sounded a dour note about the state of Trump's dwindling legal challenges to overthrow the election.

"As unpleasant and disappointing as these past three weeks have been to so many of us, as much as we wish things were different, this is where things stand tonight," she sighed, adding: "Unless the legal situation changes in a dramatic and unlikely manner, Joe Biden will be inaugurated on January 20th."

Seth Meyers Brutally Mocks Sidney Powell, the Trump Lawyer ‘Too Insane' for Tucker Carlson
After taking on Rudy Giuliani's literal meltdown last week, Seth Meyers moved on to the "craziest addition" to President Donald Trump's legal team on Monday: Sidney Powell. "And if you thought Rudy was bonkers, this lady is crazier than a cereal mascot," the Late Night host joked.

Before her newest turn in the spotlight, Powell was perhaps best known for making appearances on Fox News that were "too insane even for Lou Dobbs," who once attempted to fact-check her wild allegations about supposedly diseased immigrants during a live interview.

Meyers proceeded to break down Powell's bizarre conspiracy theories that somehow link late Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez to the Republican governor of Georgia. "And yet curiously, she kept refusing to provide evidence of this vast scheme when pressed," he said, "even by friendly Fox News hosts who were basically desperate to agree with her as long as she could provide a shred of evidence."
