Donald Trump Takes Limp Jab At Election Results During Boxing Commentary

Former President Donald Trump covered a boxing match on the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, and used the occasion to regurgitate his lies about his election defeat.

Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr. provided commentary for a four-fight, pay-per-view livestream capped by UFC veteran Vitor Belfort’s first-round TKO of 58-year-old former champ Evander Holyfield.
