GREG KELLY (HOST): I will not condemn what President Trump said. In fact -- well, look, let me point out what's happening here.

Donald Trump believes that he won the 2020 election. I happen to agree with him in large part. I think there were huge problems with that election. What we're learning right now – if you're Donald Trump, you can absolutely understand the way he feels. And it only happened to him. He's the victim here, actually – yes, the millions of people who voted for him. But him especially.


So, there's actually no provision in the Constitution if you find out there was massive fraud, and perhaps the person in the White House doesn't belong there. How do you fix that? Do you set up a new system? Do you set up a new election? Do you wait two and a half, three years until the next election?

You know, we do do things external to the Constitution all the time. I don't like it, for the most part, when it happens. Like for two years, we were all told we had to stay home and we had no choice. Remember when they closed down businesses? Remember when they arrested a man for opening his business? Was that in the Constitution? How about this woman who was arrested for going to Arby's and she would not wear her mask?


KELLY: So, is this in the Constitution, that you must wear a mask when you go out for lunch? I don't think that's in the Constitution. How about drag queens reading to children in schools? I think that's a violation of my constitutional rights, even if it's not my kid. So, there are a lot of things that happened outside the Constitution. And some are really, really bad. And some are supported by RINOs all over the place.


KELLY: Now, I don't like that. But holding an election holding another election? I don't think he was serious about it. Obviously, it's very hard to do, but that's not a suppression of the right. That's not a suppression. That is, basically, an opportunity for everybody. All right?
