Fox News’ Sandra Smith responded incredulously to a guest’s remarks after reiterating the Trump campaign’s voter fraud claims.

Smith didn’t realize she mockingly replied into a hot mic after pro-Trump attorney Cleta Mitchell questioned the veracity of Fox News’ projection that Joe Biden won the presidency.

The incident occurred as Smith’s co-host, Trace Gallagher, interviewed Mitchell.

WATCH:


The Hill’s Dominick Mastrangelo has more:

“Remember just because CNN or even Fox News says somebody is president, does not mean they’re president,” Mitchell said while appearing on the program.

“What?” Smith, who was not conducting the interview of Mitchell, was caught on her microphone saying. “What is happening? Trace, we’ve called it.”

Trump, his campaign and his allies on Capitol Hill have not acknowledged the outcome of the presidential election, which was called in favor of Biden, by every major news network, including Fox News, on Saturday. 

However, what The Hill doesn’t acknowledge is that lawsuits and recounts that could change the election’s outcome remain pending. Ultimately, the General Services Administration (GSA) certifies the presidential election winner.

Fox News drew the ire of President Trump and his supporters on Election Day by declaring Biden the popular vote winner in Arizona. As of this article’s publication, The New York Times and other outlets have not called the race there.

Senior White House adviser Jared Kushner reportedly spoke to Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch to complain about the Arizona call by the network.

Mainstream Media or ‘news’ by any other component do not ever ‘call’ any election – they cannot Certify only Project, Estimate, Guess – only States can CERTIFY an election.

They can “CALL” the election anytime they please. That doesn’t make it so unless there is sooooo much evidence that Biden won (by over 5 million votes). Explain how you ever get that many fraudulent votes. Get real!

Are you that lacking in fact or mental ability. In Pennsylvania, Trump was ahead by 700,000 votes. Then as they shut down for THREE HOURS in the middle of the night, truck loads of ballots arrived. And it seems that ALL of them were only marked on ONE election. The rest of the ballots were blank. It takes a long time to mark 700,000 ballots for all elections So they did not bother. IF the truth is know, they will publish just how many ballots came in with only the PRESIDENT race marked. And all of them were marked for Biden. AND THAT IS HOW THEY STOLE THE ELECTION.
GOTCHA.

The Dems fixed this election right from the beginning by first keeping Biden hidden from everyone while they set the stage for a neat way to steal the election. Trump had such a big lead that Biden should have never gotten close let alone pass president Trump by. Closing the election counting down and then receiving ballots early in the morning hours and then Biden gets the lead. They also waited for the Counties that were best for Biden to Carry and Count them last. And when they cheated with all the illegal votes for Biden there was not enough Ballots left for President Trump to catch up. The main issue is that the votes that were cast should be rechecked for their Validity on who they were for. This Presidential Candidate hid away from reporters so he wouldn’t prove what an idiot he really is. For his role with His son Hunter involving China and the Ukraine which both of them traveled on Air Force 2 together and VP Biden had no knowledge of His sons dealings with barismo and with China investments. I think that all Politicians who want to run for Office should not be allowed any money from special interest groups or Lobbyist as they would be beholding to them. If they really want to serve our Country’s best interest they should report to work 5 days a week and 8 hours a day like most of America’s workforce does. They also should be limited to two terms with 25% pension and pay for their medical insurance like the rest of us. In doing this I think we will get more Patriots and Honest men and women to care about keeping our Country free and safe, 47 years in Office and this man has accomplished nothing. Oh excuse me he was for segregation as he didn’t want his kids going to a jungle school. Now that was a racist statement if ever I have heard one. Another is “If you vote for Trump you ain’t Black.” The Dems have kept people of color down and out for years. Making them depend on Government subsidies like welfare and food stamps. Making them dependent on the Government keeps them down in poverty and not allow them to make a better future for themselves. Anyone going through this type of stereo typing will never make it on their own and never have any self esteem. Wake up everyone before we head down the Socialist road to total destruction and this is for all races being kept down the the Liberal left Radicals who want to change our Country. They have started in the last 2 years trying to cancel out our Culture and most importantly remove our Country’s History all across the Nation. How can anyone person or Nation move forward if we don’t have knowledge of our History to show us what direction we should be going in. Re-elect Trump to keep America Safe and Great.

“Get real” and get with it…first Biden did not win by 5 million votes…second, even if he were ahead by 100 million votes, the opposing candidate can challenge those votes and until the GSA, and only the GSA certifies the results does it become official…period…quite the misinformed mental midget, you are…

Oh lord Richard. So now we’ll hear “He got the popular vote” for the next 4 years if Trump wins. I than have to say “But look who the popular voters are”. You couldn’t pay me to be one of them. Get your nose of out CNN and watch a news channel that says the truth because you can only listen to what Trump eats, wears, says, does so many times before you pull your hair out if you don’t change channels.

Easy they have software that changed votes, they bought votes like in Minneapolis Omar paid for that and they stole ballots filled them out so when people went into vote they were told they already voted. You liberals never see a problem with anything as long as it’s in your favor. I will never buy that 70+ million voted for a demented old man and a hooker.

In addition to that, FIVE MILLION VOTE lead in California is probably a minimum of the FRAUDULENT VOTES that California had with 3 million minimum illegal voters. And the town where Democrats (Just two) account for 8 thousand fraudulent mail in votes.
We have the PROOF. Now you can accept that or face God at judgement for Matthew 12:36.

I thought we had a chance now with Barrett on the SCOTUS. HOWEVER, it seems that Gorsuch is joining Roberts as a traitor to America. There is NO way that ACA is, was or ever will be CONSTITUTIONAL. There is no place in the constitution where the government is allowed to take over health care.

Sandy Smith is just another entitled elitist whose job is to promote the corporatist narrative. She could easily work for one of the other corps that control the media, unlike the top ranking prime timers, so she’s keeping her options open.

There are time limits for states to certify their elections , when it p[asses that date, it’s automatic. The dates are set in the constitution for the electoral college AND the inauguration. Trump can have several dozen lawsuits “pending” and it will make NO difference if they haven’t been heard. Trump soses because a court cannot invalidate anything that is unconstitutionalOnce the dates pass,, the lawsuits are moot and cannot be changed..

No, if Biden is elected President, it is all WORKING Americans that will “regret” a Biden Administration. Naturally, low life’s that have no Job like college kids, retirees with no investments, and the super rich will be better off riding on the backs of the middle class TAXPAYER. Which on are you?

Yup! I removed the FNC app from my phone and ipad! Been watching OAN and Newsmax for a while now, but election night was the hammer! Hopefully, Trump will start his own TNN and all of the real conservatives like Tucker, Sean, Judge Jeanine, etc. will leave FOX and join the winning team!

Not stupid. CORRUPT. They KNOW that their jobs are now controlled by the Murdock boy’s WIVES. And that means either you put out the lies or you get fired.
Look for them to come up with an excuse to get rid of Carlson and Hannity and Ingraham. Then Fox will be HISTORY
