Karl Rove has said Donald Trump is 'on the edge of looking like a sore loser', urging the president to put the country first and accept the results of the election. Rove, who was George W. Bush's chief advisor, said on Sunday that Trump needed to put the country's interests first. Trump told Fox News on Saturday, in an interview which aired Sunday, that he felt the election was 'not over' and he would continue to fight.  He also refused to say whether he would attend Joe Biden's inauguration, which would make him the fourth president to shun the ceremony, after John Adams in 1801, John Quincy Adams in 1829 and Andrew Johnson in 1869. Asked whether he believed Trump would continue to contest the results even after January 6 - the day when both the Senate and House gather to officially count the votes - Rove told Fox news it depended on what Trump's aim was. Karl Rove, who was George W. Bush's senior advisor, said Trump needed to accept reality Donald

'The legal theory put forward by his legal team and by the president is an absurdity,' Christie told ABC's 'This Week' on Sunday morning.

Seven of the nine justices refused on Friday to hear the case. Chris Christie appeared on ABC's This Week on Sunday to discuss the election results Donald Trump spoke to Fox on Saturday and said he believes the election is not over 'The reason why the Supreme Court didn't take it is because it's an absurd idea to think that any state or any number of states, no matter how good they are, can challenge another

Image
Jill Biden on Sunday night hit back at a Wall Street Journal author who mocked her use of the doctor title, as the university where he previously taught distanced itself from his 'misogynistic' writing.  Columnist Joseph Epstein, 83, labelled the future first lady, 69, 'kiddo' in the piece published Friday in which he said she should 'think about it and forthwith drop the doc'. His words sparked anger, and on Sunday she tweeted: 'Together, we will build a world where the accomplishments of our daughters will be celebrated, rather than diminished.' Epstein had previously taught at Northwestern University in Chicago, but on Saturday they said that he had not taught a class since 2003.  Epstein had been listed as an 'emeritus lecturer of English' on the school's website earlier Saturday, but the page had vanished later in the day  'While we firmly support academic freedom and freedom of expression, we do not agree with Mr Epstein's opini

You're just setting those little traps in case you get beat. 'I'll win comfortably.'  Paul Gallen and Mark Hunt (pictured together) have mouthed off during their press conference ahead of Wednesday night's boxing bout Despite the trash talk, Gallen, unbeaten in 11 fights, does have immense respect for Hunt.
