The president is spot-on about the potential of Democrat fraud in the November election
Folk can get an early perceptive whiff of what is coming down the pike when Fox News sends out its most anti-Trump host, Chris Wallace as a ‘moderator’ in the first presidential debate on September 28, by reading their headlines today and other days ’til then.
No doubt Legend in His Own Mind Wallace will lob softballs at Barack Obama’s former vice president Joe Biden, while trying to blame President Trump for everything going wrong in America—just as Fox did in each and every one of its presidential popularity polls.
Let’s take a gander at today’s headlines, flat-out accusing Trump of election illegalities:
Trump urges voters to check mail-in ballots counted at polls
‘Trump tries to clarify suggestion that voters cast ballots twice, which if done intentionally is illegal’ is the headline on today’s Washington Post.
“Tries to” is the headline’s operative term.
“President Trump on Thursday sought to clarify remarks in which he suggested voting twice, saying in tweets that he was instead urging those who vote by mail to follow up at their polling place to make sure their mail-in ballots have been counted.” (WaPo, Sept. 3, 2020)
But over at left-leaning Fox News, the president is guilty as charged: (Fox New, Sept. 3, 2020)
‘Trump urges voters to check mail-in ballots counted at polls after saying they should try to vote twice’.
Operative term in the Fox News headline “after saying they should try to vote twice”.
“President Trump encouraged voters to make sure “your precious vote has been counted,” a day after he was accused of urging his supporters in North Carolina to commit election fraud by trying to vote twice — once by mail and then again in-person at the polls on Election Day just in case.”
Fox News, Paragraph One.
“He clarified on Twitter that he wanted voters to double-check that their mail-in votes were counted.”
Fox News, Paragraph Two.
“He wants verification”
“Based on the massive number of Unsolicited & Solicited Ballots that will be sent to potential Voters for the upcoming 2020 Election, & in order for you to MAKE SURE YOUR VOTE COUNTS & IS COUNTED, SIGN & MAIL IN your Ballot as EARLY as possible,” Trump tweeted Thursday. “On Election Day, or Early Voting, go to your Polling Place to see whether or not your Mail In Vote has been Tabulated (Counted). If it has you will not be able to Vote & the Mail In System worked properly. If it has not been Counted, VOTE (which is a citizen’s right to do).” (Fox News)
Following his advice, he said, would ensure “THAT YOUR PRECIOUS VOTE HAS BEEN COUNTED, it hasn’t been ‘lost, thrown out, or in any way destroyed.’”
“His tweets came shortly after a television appearance in which White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany insisted that Trump was not calling on voters to break the law. (WaPo)
“The president is not suggesting anyone do anything unlawful,” McEnany said during an appearance on Fox News. “What he said very clearly there is make sure your [mail-in] vote is tabulated, and if it is not, then vote.”
“He wants verification,” McEnany continued. “Democrats want a whole new fraudulent system of mail-in voting never tried before in American history, and what “Democrats are saying to you is, ‘Trust us, but don’t verify.’ What this president is saying is verify your vote.”
“Trump’s comments Wednesday generated enough confusion that the N.C. Board of Elections issued a statement saying that it is a Class 1 felony to intentionally vote twice. The board also noted that it is illegal to solicit someone to vote twice.
Facebook Chimes In
“In a statement, Karen Brinson Bell, executive director of the board, also discouraged voters from coming to the polls on Election Day to verify that their mail-in ballots had been counted. (WaPo)
“The State Board office strongly discourages people from showing up at the polls on Election Day to check whether their absentee ballot was counted,” Bell said. “This is not necessary, and it would lead to longer lines and the possibility of spreading COVID-19.”
“Separately, Facebook announced that it would delete a video of Trump’s original comments.
“This video violates our policies prohibiting voter fraud and we will remove it unless it is shared to correct the record,” the company said in a statement.
“The president, who has claimed that the 2020 election will be rife with fraud and rigged against him because of greater mail-in voting during the pandemic, was asked Wednesday by a television reporter in North Carolina whether he had confidence in the system.
“Let them send it in and let them go vote, and if their system’s as good as they say it is, then obviously they won’t be able to vote. If it isn’t tabulated, they’ll be able to vote,” Trump said.
Potential of Democrat fraud in the November election
“The president also greeted supporters on the tarmac upon landing in Wilmington, N.C., and made nearly identical comments, encouraging them to send in their ballot “and then go in and vote.” (WaPo)
“So send it in early and then go and vote,” Trump said. “You can’t let them take your vote away; these people are playing dirty politics. So if you have an absentee ballot . . . you send it in, but I’d check it, follow it and go vote.”
“Trump has insisted, without evidence, that widespread mail-in voting, expanded in many states to accommodate fears around the coronavirus pandemic, will result in corruption, miscounting and delays, making it impossible to know who won the November election.”
Remember, this is the media accusing the president of making accusations of vote fraud—in their own words: “without evidence”!
But the president is spot-on about the potential of Democrat fraud in the November election.
Time for the hashtag: ‘Walk away from Democrat & Media Hate—VOTE IN PERSON
