President Donald Trump is convinced shenanigans were involved in the vote counting process in multiple states and his legal team, including his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, has fanned out all over the country in states that are too close to call.
Giuliani and Trump’s son, Eric, made an appearance in Pennsylvania on Wednesday, with Giuliani lobbing accusations—most, if not all, unsubstantiated by evidence—of voter fraud and Democratic cheating.
“This is beyond anything I have ever seen before,” he said. “Do you think we’re stupid? Do you think we’re fools? You know something, Democrats do think you’re stupid. And they do think you’re fools. That’s why you get called ‘deplorable’ and ‘chumps’. We’re going to stick with this. We’re going to win this election. We’ve actually won it. It’s just a matter of counting the votes fairly.”
Giuliani offered the idea that mail-in ballots could have come from Mars or Canada. He added, without any proof, that one person could have sent in 100,000 votes.
Eric Trump and Giuliani spoke in Philadelphia and said the president already has won Pennsylvania but presented no legal argument or proof of voter fraud. Yet. The President has been active on Twitter stating his case as much as Twitter would allow. For example: “We have claimed, for Electoral Vote purposes, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (which won’t allow legal observers), the State of Georgia, and the State of North Carolina, each one of which has a BIG Trump lead,” the president wrote. “Additionally, we hereby claim the State of Michigan if, in fact.”
Michigan was called for Biden on Wednesday while Pennsylvania continued to count ballots on Thursday. “They’re trying to cheat, they’re trying to cheat,” Eric Trump said repeatedly of the Democrats.
