President Donald Trump almost went there and admitted that — contrary to the constant stream of falsehoods he has sputtered for the last 10 days — he actually lost the Nov. 3 election to Joe Biden.

The key word, of couse, is “almost.” Because — like “Happy Days” character Arthur “Fonzie” Fonzarelli —Trump can’t ever admit being wrong about anything.

It happened Friday in a news conference in which Trump discussed how the White House planned to handle the COVID-19 pandemic in the coming months.

“Ideally, we won’t go to a lockdown ― I will not go, this administration will not be going to a lockdown. Hopefully, the, uh, whatever happens in the future, who knows which administration it will be,” Trump said. “I guess time will tell.”

Considering that Biden reportedly won 306 electoral college votes, you’d think it’s a done deal.

But not as far as the president is concerned. He has made all sorts of bizarre claims that he really won the race.

For instance, Trump on Friday took credit for what the Department of Homeland Security called the most secure election in U.S. history — and then he argued it was rigged.

The president’s comments attracted a lot of snarky political analysis from Twitter users.

But one person suggested that Trump’s comment was probably as good as it’s going to get.
