Trump rejected the election:— Will Saletan (@saletan) November 27, 2020
"It was a rigged election, 100%."
"This election was a fraud."
"Joe Biden did not get 80 million votes."
"I got 74 million, but there were many ballots thrown away. So I got much more than that."
"At the highest level, it was a rigged election." /2
The rant was full of demonstrable lies. Trump said GA's recount "found thousands of wrong votes ... always against me." (Wrong. Biden gained margin in 44 counties.)— Will Saletan (@saletan) November 27, 2020
He said "We’re doing very well in front of the states" in contesting the election. (He lost nearly every case.) /4
More desperate egotism: "The vaccines were me," Trump raged. "I pushed people harder than they’ve ever been pushed."— Will Saletan (@saletan) November 27, 2020
He bragged that he got "millions more [votes] than Ronald Reagan got" in 1984. Reagan won 59% of the vote and a bigger share of the population than Trump did. /6
This is sad and dangerous. Trump said friends told him there was no way he'd lose AZ. He said there's no way he could have lost PA, because Biden criticized fracking. Reality didn't turn out as Trump expected. So he's rejecting reality.— Will Saletan (@saletan) November 27, 2020
For 8 more weeks, he's our president. /END
I’m guessing that’s a Xmas tree Melanie hasn’t painted red yet.
