Newsmax host Greg Kelly defended former President Donald Trump's demand for the "termination" of the United States Constitution and proclaimed that he is personally victimized by drag queens reading to kids in a segment on Monday's edition of his nightly right-wing talk show.

"So, with the revelation of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party, do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution," Trump wrote on his fake Twitter app Truth Social on Saturday, which he then denied on Monday.

Despite the widespread outrage that Trump's remarks incited from his critics, condemnation amongst Republicans has been palpably sparse. Kelly, however, apparently believes that Trump was right and that his debunked lies about the 2020 election having been stolen are true.

"So, there's actually no provision in the Constitution if you find out there was massive fraud, and perhaps the person in the White House doesn't belong there. How do you fix that? Do you set up a new system? Do you set up a new election? Do you wait two and a half, three years until the next election?" Kelly pondered as an attempt to rationalize Trump.

"You know, we do do things external to the Constitution all the time. I don't like it, for the most part, when it happens. Like, for two years, we were all told we had to stay home and we had no choice. Remember when they closed down businesses? Remember when they arrested a man for opening his business? Was that in the Constitution? How about this woman who was arrested for going to Arby's and she would not wear her mask?" Kelly contemplated before whining about drag queens, who are regularly scapegoated by conservatives.

"So, is this in the Constitution, that you must wear a mask when you go out for lunch? I don't think that's in the Constitution. How about drag queens reading to children in schools? I think that's a violation of my constitutional rights, even if it's not my kid," Kelly continued. "So, there are a lot of things that happened outside the Constitution. And some are really, really bad. And some are supported by RINOs all over the place."
