The person masquerading as President of the United States said, “When people get in line that have absolutely no right to vote and they go around in circles. Sometimes they go to their car, put on a different hat, put on a different shirt, come in and vote again. Nobody takes anything. It’s really a disgrace what’s going on.”
Lies are not unusual coming from Trump, but the shame is the way in which the grand lies and conspiracies are received by the media these days. If you can recall, when Trump made the outlandish claim that the crowd size during his inauguration exceeded his predecessor President Barack Obama’s inauguration attendees the media was quick to refute the lie.
Now such claims are treated as the norm coming out of the white house. Trump is correct in knowing his base will believe whatever is served to them. Maybe the new Congress will hold a committee hearing when Trump makes up lies about the integrity of our elections but believes Vladimir Putin’s claim that he didn’t interfere in US Elections, despite intelligence reports to the contrary.
During an interview, President Trump called for the firing of Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes and suggested without evidence that Republicans don't win elections "because of potentially illegal votes" https://t.co/FXJBtnJPg6 pic.twitter.com/6HuVA5taWx
