Pro-Trumper Who Lost Congressional Bid By 20 Points Now Claims She Won: ‘The Election Was Stolen’

 

Laura Loomer is a far right conspiracy theorist who also happens to be (surprise!) a fanatical supporter of failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump.

Loomer ran for a congressional seat in Florida during the 2020 election and got her clock cleaned, losing by over 80,000 votes, a full 20 points behind the Democrat, Rep. Lois Frankel, who emerged victorious in the 21st district of the Sunshine State.

But Loomer is now claiming (much like the orange menace who was once president) that she lost because the election was stolen from her.

Appearing on a podcast hosted by Joe Pags, Loomer had this to say:

“I won. I won, the election was stolen, just like it was stolen from Donald Trump. I won my election.”

Loomer’s comments set off a firestorm of ridicule on Twitter:

There’s an old expression, “Lose with dignity and celebrate with grace.” Clearly, Republicans have no idea what that means.
