(R-CA) had a meltdown at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando on Saturday, claiming that former President Barack Obama helped steal the presidential election for Joe Biden.

Nunes essentially said that Obama and the Democrats were the masterminds of a conspiracy that started in the spring of 2020 to steal the election via absentee ballots.

“One of the first people to come out and say we’re going to have to do absentee voting was Obama,” the GOP

lawmaker said. “They went to all their friendly places they could get this done and they essentially started the first step of saying that everybody has to absentee vote.”

Nunes made no mention of the fact that voting by mail was expanded because a deadly pandemic was ravaging the country.

Nunes said:

Right when this pandemic hit, one of the first people to come out and say we’re going to have to do absentee voting was Obama. And they said that back in May. I think it was April or May is when he first said that. This was the first time that I had seen that, and I was thinking, ‘What?’ And then, of course, they went to all their friendly places they could get this done and they essentially started the first step of saying that everybody has to absentee vote and, we know what happened.

Republicans are hurting themselves and the country by refusing to accept reality

Following Donald Trump’s election loss, Republicans had a chance to chart a new course for their party.

They could have accepted the loss and used it as a wake-up call to change direction. While Trump fired up a portion of the electorate, it wasn’t and isn’t enough to win a national election.

Instead of acknowledging that, Republicans are keeping their heads buried in the sand. They refuse to accept reality.

Pushing these lies and conspiracy theories, as Devin Nunes did on Saturday, is what led to the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. It’s why D.C. continues to look like a war zone.

It might make Republicans feel good to create an alternate timeline in which they won the 2020 presidential election. But these lies will hurt them politically and weaken democracy
