Donald Trump gives a 16-minute speech filled with lies, conspiracy theories, and more gaslighting. MSNBC cuts him off after 30 seconds.
The blatant lies are so extreme that even the New York Post calls him out. The Post is owned by the Murdoch family (like Fox News) and usually doesn’t hesitate to share right-wing propaganda and conspiracies.
Some highlights from the speech:
“If you look at the legal votes, I win very easily.”
There is no evidence that any voter fraud has taken place this election. All votes counted so far have been legal.
“They (Detroit and Philadelphia) are trying very obviously to commit fraud.”
There is no proof, Trump has no proof, and this is just typical Trump. Even though Detroit still has some votes left to count, Michigan already has a clear winner: Joe Biden.
“I’ve said very strongly that mail-in ballots are going to end up being a disaster… It’s getting worse and worse every day.”
So far, every state has followed state and federal laws regarding absentee ballots. Judges have shut down multiple lawsuits that, without any evidence, claim otherwise.
Trump also claims that states where the vote is too close to call have a “voting apparatus… run in all cases by Democrats” and that the vote counts are fraudulent.
From NPR: “In fact, the secretaries of state in Georgia and Nevada — two of five states where a clear winner has not yet been determined — are Republican. In the case of Georgia’s Brad Raffensperger, Trump actually endorsed him for the office in 2018.”
