In a rambling 46-minute video Wednesday complete with charts and posters, Trump again argued that the election was ‘rigged,’ insisted that the election result be ‘overturned,’ and asked the Supreme Court to intervene. Posting it on FaceBook and Twitter, it was soon flagged by both as ‘untrustworthy.’
‘This election was rigged. Everyone knows it. I don’t mind if I lose an election, but I want to lose an election fair and square. What I don’t want to do is have it stolen from the American people,’ Trump whined.
Trump repeated his false claims of fraud, ‘dead people voting’, mysterious anomalies in voting machines, and alleged corruption in big cities with Democratic votes that went for Joe Biden.
Many of his claims have already been debunked by his own legal team, including Bill Barr who said there was ‘not enough evidence of fraud to overturn the result.’
‘The greatest pollsters, the real pollsters – not the ones that had us down 17 points in Wisconsin when we actually won, while the ones that had us down four or five points in Florida and we won by many points or had us even down in Texas, and we won by a lot – not those pollsters but real pollsters that are fair and honest, said “We can’t understand a thing like this: it’s never happened before you led the country to victory and you were the only one that was lost. It’s not possible,’ Trump complained in the video.
The Washington Post nailed it when they wrote: “The most petulant 46 minutes in American history.”
