Dr. Stephen Maynard Caliendo broke down the election night in all its wild glory

Going into the election, Americans knew we would not likely wake up the following morning knowing who had won the White House. In the morning following election night, many media outlets were fixated on the presidential address made by Trump in the early hours on November 4.

Dr. Stephen Maynard Caliendo, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at North Central College, interviewed with FOX 32 Chicago on President Trump’s address and the wild ride that was election night.

“I was really disappointed that the president would make a statement like that, certainly in the White House in front of a crowd and to suggest there was fraud going on because they are counting ballots after election day,” said Dr. Caliendo. “It is suggesting that people were casting votes after the election was over when that is certainly not the case. He also said that he was going to go to the Supreme Court, which is not how it works. He would have to challenge in the state courts because the election is controlled by the states. It could ultimately make its way to the Supreme Court, but there is a process in place for that.”
