According to failed, one-term former President Donald Trump, the victory by GOP candidate Glenn Younkin in the Virginia gubernatorial election on Tuesday is proof-positive that there’s massive election fraud in the United States.
During a phone interview with right-wing radio host John Fredericks on Wednesday morning, the twice-impeached Trump declared:
Using Trump’s premise, doesn’t there need to be a recount and forensic audit in Virginia?
Trump’s comment led Fredericks to ask how Youngkin could have won a two-point victory over Democratic challenger Terry McAuliffe just a year after the ex-president tanked against Joe Biden by a 10-point margin. Trump replied:
There was also the obligatory self-congratulations from the ex-president:
If that’s true, why did Youngkin refuse to appear with Trump during the governor’s race?
Trump also claimed he was responsible for Youngkin winning in a statement he issued on Tuesday evening:
It is looking like Terry McAuliffe’s campaign against a certain person named “Trump” has very much helped Glenn Youngkin. All McAuliffe did was talk Trump, Trump, Trump and he lost! What does that tell you, Fake News? I guess people running for office as Democrats won’t be doing that too much longer. I didn’t even have to go rally for Youngkin, because McAuliffe did it for me. Thank you to the MAGA voters for turning out big!
So when Republicans win, elections are fair and free of fraud. But when Democrats win, Trump and his supporters whine that the election was stolen from them.
Trump and his minions have indeed turned truth on its head.
