image for Supreme Court will not hear case to oust Biden, reinstate Trump

FILE - The setting sun illuminates the Supreme Court building on Capitol Hill in Washington, Jan. 10, 2023.

The court has twice rejected a case calling for hundreds of elected officials to be removed from office after refusing to investigate baseless 2020 election fraud claims.

CLAIM: The U.S. Supreme Court will hear a case to remove President Joe Biden from office and reinstate former President Donald Trump in his place.

The Supreme Court has not decided to hear such a case.

THE FACTS: Nearly one week after the Supreme Court justices doubled down on their decision not to hear the suit, social media users falsely claimed the opposite.

One Instagram post shared a screenshot of a headline reading: “Supreme Court To Hear Case To Reinstate Donald Trump Over ‘Rigged’ Election.”

In January 2023, the Supreme Court declined to hear the case and an appeal was filed later that month. »

Final Fantasy 16 is almost a direct reply to that; an apology, a way of Square Enix to show it knows how to release a proper, fully-fledged game.
