Donald Trump still refuses to accept that the American people chose Joe Biden over him and insists on propagating the lie that he won the 2020 election despite the obvious reality that he lost by more than 7 million votes.
Whether or not Trump actually believes his own lies is ultimately irrelevant because he’s managed to convince a large chunk of his gullible supporters that he won. These credulous buffoons genuinely believe that mass voter fraud took place—despite the complete lack of evidence for such a conspiracy—and some of them believe Trump might still be reinstated as president when the interminable conservative-backed election audits finally end.
Today, Trump released a statement whining about what he calls the Republican In Name Only (RINO) Board of Supervisors for Maricopa County, Arizona. The former president attacked the board for refusing to hand over “routers,” which apparently now feature into one of the deranged conspiracy theories that right-wingers have concocted about the election. Suffice it to say it’s yet another desperate, doomed bid to claw back a victory for the MAGA movement and its disgraced, defeated leader. It will lead nowhere.
In his statement, Trump went on to imply that the board is hiding something because they’re “fighting for life or death” to hold back the routers from the Republican hacks working to audit the vote. He concluded by claiming without evidence for the umpteenth time that there was decisive voter fraud in the 2020 election and insisted that “details” are rapidly emerging that vindicate his lies.
