The Effect of Reality Seeping into the Disinformation Bubble  

The electoral college functioned properly yesterday, confirming Joe Biden as president-elect. This development convinced even Vladimir Putin, causing him to congratulate Biden on his victory. It had no effect on Trump, however. He continues to claim that he was the real winner. Has anyone in history persevered to such a degree in repeating a big lie in the face of so much contrary evidence?

It seems likely that Trump will keep proclaiming himself to be the rightful president for the rest of his life. As reality seeps into the disinformation bubble, increasing numbers of his faithful supporters will begin to wonder whether that really is the case.
