Trump Stuns With Suggestion of ‘New Election’ in Arizona: It’s Like ‘Alex Jones Is President’

President Donald Trump has been on a Fox News-inspired tweetstorm today about the ongoing vote counting in several states, and he stunned a lot of people with the suggestion of a redo in Arizona.

Even for Trump, this one was a bit surprising. Even Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told him to “cut the crap.”

Mr. President: Every voter is entitled to vote whether they agree with you or not. Democracy is stronger than you are. Cut the crap.

Because he’s unhappy that this week, the American people rejected his platform of hatred, bigotry, and fear, @realDonaldTrump wants to throw Americans’ votes in the garbage.

It’s not normal to have the president of the United States actively trying to throw into doubt the legitimacy of elections

Yes, I’m sure this is part of the widespread left-wing conspiracy that plagues ultra-liberal Arizona. That makes perfect sense.

It’s not clear what the president is talking about here. There’s no allegation I’m aware of that signatures in AZ aren’t matching.

What the heck is he talking about? Arizona’s top election official is a Republican, who works for a Republican Secretary of State, whose office is enforcing Republican voting requirement laws. And our Republican AG is vowing to ensure every vote is counted.
