President Trump struck a somber note Sunday about his attempt to overturn the 2020 election results, CNBC reports. "Well, the problem is, it's hard to get into the Supreme Court," he said on Fox News' Sunday Morning Futures. "I've got the best Supreme Court advocates, lawyers, that want to argue the case, if it gets there. They said, 'It's very hard to get a case up there.' Can you imagine, Donald Trump, president of the United States, files a case, and I probably can't get a case." Just the day before, he tweeted that Fox's daytime programming "is virtually unwatchable" and people should watch "almost anything else." For more around the Sunday dial:

  • Anthony Fauci: "Perhaps even two or three weeks down the line … we may see a surge upon a surge" of the coronavirus pandemic, he said on This Week, per Time. He added that he doesn't expect a relaxation of virus restrictions before Christmas.

  • More Fauci: "The travel that has been done has been done," he said of this year's Thanksgiving, per the Hill, adding that "there almost certainly is going to be an uptick because of what has happened with the travel."
  • Mike Duggan: "If you make a commitment to the masks, we don't have to shut the economy down," Detroit's mayor said on Face the Nation, per MSN.
  • Nancy Mace: "It's not just Democrat women who have a monopoly on breaking glass ceilings," the Republican rep.-elect from South Carolina said on State of the Union, per the Hill. "Republican women have been doing it all year long in these elections all across the country."
  • Jon Ossoff: If Republicans hold the Senate, "it will be paralysis, partisan trench warfare, obstructionism as far as the eye can see at a moment of crisis when we need strong action," the Democratic Georgia Senate candidate said on State of the Union, per Fox News.
  • Gov. Asa Hutchinson: "We're working with the transition, we expect [Joe Biden] to be sworn in on January 20," the Arkansas Republican said on Fox News Sunday, per Reuters. "The words of President Trump are not quite as significant" as the transition.
  • Sen. Roy Blunt: "Well, the president-elect will be the president-elect when the electors vote for him," the Missouri Republican said of Biden on State of the Union. "There is no official job of president-elect."
