Looks like someone threw a temper tantrum after one of the hosts on his propaganda network got out of line and dared to push back at his gaslighting campaign spokesperson, who was pretending the presidential election isn't over.

Erin Perrine made an appearance on this Saturday's America's News Headquarters on Fox, and got into a shouting match with host Leland Vittert over her refusal to answer a simple question: "Where are you going to find the votes?"

All Vittert wanted to know from Perrine is where the Trump campaign thinks it’s going to find enough “fraudulent” votes to somehow change the outcome of the election, but she couldn’t come up with a comprehensible answer. He visibly laughed in her face as she claimed “the legal path ahead exists here.”

It was blatant enough that Perrine told him to “keep smirking, making your faces and rolling your eyes,” adding, “You guys spent years trying to run up the Russia hoax against the president and the hypocrisy continues!” And then later, “You guys keep calling [Biden] the president-elect!”

“I don’t know who ‘you guys’ are,” Vittert said, to which his guest replied, “I’m Erin Perrine, I work for the president of the United States.”

“I’m trying to ask you, very simply, where are you going to find the votes?” the anchor asked. “You say you want to count every vote conceivably because you think you’re going to pull ahead. Where are the votes in a path to 270? Where?”

“We are taking every legal avenue that exists in these states to make sure that legal votes are counted and illegal votes are counted,” Perrine responded, appearing to misspeak in the heated moment. “For every Democrat and every talking head on the news, how much fraud is OK? How many dead people can vote and you’re OK with that?”

Laughing, Vittert asked, “Am I OK with it?” before going after her again for lumping him in with “you guys” in the media. “So now you just attack everybody if they don’t agree with you?” he asked before cutting the interview short.

So, naturally the man-baby took to Twitter and attacked the host and the network.

Trump has been pushing OANN and Newsmax every time anyone on Fox doesn't show sufficient fealty to him, which means just admitting reality these days.
