At his latest post-presidency Nuremberg-style rally in Perry, Georgia, on Saturday evening, failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump continued to spread his “big lie” about the 2020 election being stolen from him, even though he has yet to provide a scintilla of evidence to prove his claims.
Trump began by asserting that he had won 75 million votes in 2020, though his final popular vote total of 74,223,369 is actually closer to 74 million than 75:
The failed ex-president also told the crowd:
Problem is, that’s not even remotely true because the last two Republican presidents who were reelected saw their vote totals skyrocket by over 10 million ballots for their reelection effort.
But perhaps the lowest point of the speech was when Trump asserted that former President Barack Obama may have stolen the election in 2012:
Of course, Trump has always hated Obama. Why? Because Obama is black and Donald is a hardcore racist. He always has been. He and his father refused to rent to African-Americans and were sued by the federal government for discriminating against black tenants.
There was also the infamous attempt by Trump to suggest that Obama wasn’t an American citizen and had been born overseas, making him unable to serve as head of state. Obama, of course, was born in Hawaii, which just so happens to be a U.S. state.
Consider what the New York Times wrote in 2016 about Trump’s attempt to discredit Obama:
“He nurtured the conspiracy like a poisonous flower, watering and feeding it with an ardor that still baffles and embarrasses many around him. Much has been made of Mr. Trump’s casual elasticity with the truth; he has exhausted an army of fact-checkers with his mischaracterizations, exaggerations and fabrications. But this lie was different from the start, an insidious, calculated calumny that sought to undo the embrace of an African-American president by the 69 million voters who elected him in 2008.”
Donald Trump is a pathological liar, a racist, a misogynist, and the presumptive leader of a death cult. He has no place in American politics and deserves to be in prison for the rest of his life.
