It seems that Donald Trump isn't the only one throwing around wild and false accusations...
It seems that alongside President Trump, Fox News is now receiving a lot of heat...Following some outrageous claims made by Tucker Carlson that dead people unfairly voted in the election, which contributed to Biden's win. Yikes.
Now, we all know that President Trump has been claiming there's evidence of voter fraud for nearly 2 weeks now...Because as you will all be aware, the president suffered a colossal loss to his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, for this year's presidential elections.
Of course, Trump has been doing everything in his power to challenge the result...The evidence has shown that he has resorted to downright denying the election and its results.
It seems as though Trump was clearly feeling the heat throughout the entire election...

He also called for a recount in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania...
via: GettyAnd then went on to threaten legal action against any State wherein Biden had won.
But, regardless of his many threats, the results were in after 4 long days of ballot counting.
via: GettyThe Associated Press called the race for Biden when Pennsylvania's twenty electoral votes put him over the 270-vote threshold needed to win the Electoral College.
Shortly after his victory, Biden Tweeted this:
"America, I’m honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country. The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a President for all Americans -whether you voted for me or not. I will keep the faith that you have placed in me."

Democrats all over the country quickly rejoiced at the news of Biden's historic win...
And remarkable footage of people cheering and celebrating from the streets of New York was quick to circulate.

However, Trump's reaction to Biden's win has been nothing short of outrageous.
via: GettyThough the president is a historically sore loser - he's very rarely had to admit defeat ever in his life - and has long made wild accusations against the Biden campaign team, people simply cannot believe his refusal to accept what has happened.
His first response to Biden's win was to release a lengthy and damning statement...In which he accused Biden and his team of rigging the entire election. As per Sky News, the statement read: “We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. “The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor. “In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process. Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media."
The statement then went on to explain how legal proceedings will begin immediately.It continued: “Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated. “The American People are entitled to an honest election: that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots. This is the only way to ensure the public has full confidence in our election. “It remains shocking that the Biden campaign refuses to agree with this basic principle and wants ballots counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by ineligible or deceased voters. Only a party engaged in wrongdoing would unlawfully keep observers out of the count room - and then fight in court to block their access. “So what is Biden hiding? I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands."
And the frenzied Twitter rants were quick to follow.In his rage, Trump took to the social media platform to dispute the result further, insisting that he was the one to have won.
He tried to take some small victory from the situation...And proudly Tweeted that he received a record-breaking number of votes. Whatever helps you sleep at night, Don.
However, more damning accusations were quick to follow...Trump seems set on the idea that Biden and his team rigged the entire election to play out in their favor, and made strong hints that something happened in the counting rooms that had "never happened before."
Did someone say sore loser?
Since the election win, the internet has been rife with people laughing at the childishness of Trump's behavior and, of course, them dubbing him as a "sore loser."
Trump's flexibility has never been his forte. 🤔 #TrumpSoreLoser #TrumpMeltdown https://t.co/jGtBgLKYv5— Laure Om (@Laure Om)1604933547.0
It's been almost 2 weeks and this hasn't swayed his attitude one bit...He is somehow determined to prove that there has been something fishy going on all throughout the elections. And now, Fox News hasn't been helping the false allegations...
In the wake of Joe Biden’s victory...
Trump supporters have claimed that dead people voted in favor of Biden, without any evidence to prove this. And Fox News has now been forced to apologize after they tried to second this claim.
LOL. Even dead people came back to life to vote for Biden, apparently. https://t.co/z3KA5biOWi— OriginalMarko (@OriginalMarko)1604641136.0
Presenter Tucker Carlson alleged that James Blalock, from Georgia, who died in 2006, managed to post his ballot this year...
Tucker Carlson said: "No-one quite embodies that story like James Blalock of Covington, Georgia. Mr. Blalock was a mailman for 33 years, until he passed away in 2006. 14 years later, according to state records, he was still mailing things. James Blalock cast a ballot in last week’s election."

However, as it turns out, James Blalock didn’t vote...
It was actually his wife Agnes, who voted in his name.
Voter fraud is real. https://t.co/3YFrT4CcI3— Rep. Matt Gaetz (@Rep. Matt Gaetz)1605199967.0
The local Newton County government wrote: "The media reports of a deceased voter casting their ballot in Newton County are inaccurate."
"We’ve got some good news tonight and an apology. One of the people who voted in last week’s election isn’t dead. James Blalock is still dead. "We told you about him, but it was his wife who voted. She voted as Mrs. James Blalock. It’s old-fashioned, and we missed it… it was Mrs. James Blalock, so apologies for that, and of course we’re always going to correct when we’re wrong, and we were."
I just talked with a 'dead' voter. She's alive & well, charming & sharp at 96. The president's campaign said James… https://t.co/NRxKPanGzo— Brendan Keefe (@Brendan Keefe)1605296399.0
However, this proof didn't stop Carlson from delivering pretty damaging false information:
"Now a whole bunch of dead people did vote, we showed their names, we proved it." Although this hasn't been proved, and according to 11Alive News, the "dead supporters" are indeed alive and voted legally. Keep scrolling for more updates...
