Love him or hate him, but either way, Trump’s transparency is undeniable. If you’re on his sh*t list, you will know it. And vice versa, if you make him proud, you will know it. And that’s exactly what happened Monday.
Republican lawmakers took part in a hearing. And the president dialed in to praise GOPers for standing up against the greatest steal of the century.
“What they did is they played game, and games like nobody has ever seen before,” Trump said, referring to the Democrats. “This is the first time that Republicans or the first time anyone has fought back.”
The audience applauded and cheered when they heard the president’s voice, as his attorney Jenna Ellis held the phone to a microphone.
The president claimed that he won the swing states of Arizona, Michigan, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, reminding supporters that he earned 11 million more votes than he did in 2016.
“I’ve been watching the hearings and they’re fascinating, incredible,” he said.
The president praised all of the in-person witnesses who noted voting and counting anomalies in the state, where Biden finished with a lead over Trump of 10,457 votes.
“I know some get heat, but many more get praise from the American public,” Trump said.
Trump appeared furious that Arizona certified the election results on Monday as the Republican hearing about fraud was taking place. He accused Republican Gov. Doug Ducey of rushing the certification process, despite questions about the election’s integrity.
“On top of it, you have a governor named Ducey,” he said as the crowd booed. “He just rushed to sign certificates … what’s that all about? He didn’t have to sign it. I say, why would he sign when you have these incredible hearings going on that’s showing such corruption and such horrible fraud?”
Cheers, Not Jeers
Ironically, Democrats constantly claim Trump lacks believers. And yet, the crowds at his disposal tell a much different story. And his call mimicked Trump’s rallies, whereas the audience applauded Trump’s every word.
The president continued:
“You have to figure out what that’s all about with Ducey. He couldn’t go fast enough,” Trump said, He added, “We’re not going to forget what Ducey just did.”
The president repeated allegations of voters who arrived to cast their ballot to find out it was already filled out, people paid to vote, and mail-in ballots that were processed without Republican election observers.
“This shows how arrogant the Democrats and others were in taking away and stealing an election,” he said.
Trump noted that he also faced criticism for fighting for voter integrity, noting that people repeatedly urged him to choose the “easier route” and focus on 2024.
“I said, ‘No,’” he recalled. “I have to focus on two weeks ago. This is the greatest scam ever perpetrated on our country.”
The president praised Arizona Republicans for holding the hearing, despite widespread criticism from corporate media.
“We admire all of the people, and that includes all of these representatives that are up there and doing a great job,” Trump said. “What they don’t realize is that they might hear some things, but they’re becoming legend for taking this on.”
The president again praised Rudy Giuliani for having the courage to fight when other lawyers backed down.
Meanwhile, the recounts continue.
We now sit almost a full month past the election, and we’re still not sure who the President will be come January.
Sadly, some states don’t seem to value the urgency of getting these ballots counted correctly. For example, Fulton county, home of Atlanta, Georgia is still sorting through nonsense.
Georgia is nearing 50 counties completed (out of 159) for the recount, and Fulton is the largest that is incomplete, [GA Secretary of State] Raffensperger said.
Fulton County has made headlines for issues counting votes, including a newly purchased Dominion Voting Systems mobile server crashing and a reporting issue requiring officials to rescan more than 300,000 ballots.
“The real issue is a Fulton County employee made several compounding errors,” Raffensperger said. “Instead of following the procedures that my office and the vendor laid out, Fulton County once again cut corners. The biggest one being [the employee] backed up the election project on the server itself instead of on an external backup. Because of that decision, they lost the ability to upload hundreds of thousands of scanned ballots.”
Raffensperger also criticized Fulton County for its “concerning” decision to cease work around 5 p.m. on both Sunday and Monday.
“Yesterday announced they will scan from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. today,” Raffensperger said. “As of an hour ago, Fulton County only had eight of the 17 high-speed scanners going because of staffing shortages.”
Isn’t that convenient. With a midnight deadline looming, staffers can’t even score the ballots at maximum capacity. Maybe I’m just an outsider, but from where I sit, it looks like some people don’t want to expose the true votes. Imagine that.
