Joe Biden will be sworn in as president on Jan 20, 2021. Donald Trump does not have the capacity to overturn an election he lost by a healthy margin, no matter how often and in what form he repeats the lie that he won. He can try to scuttle the presidential transition. But in the end, much of that process happens automatically. Which means that the end of the Trump administration is coming, regardless of how convincingly the president pretends otherwise.

That's what the reasonable part of my mind keeps saying.
