President Donald Trump is not letting up with his conspiratorial ranting amidst the Coronavirus crisis. This Sunday morning, after some Sunday morning television had already aired, Trump rushed to Twitter with his thoughts about mail-in voting, which he baselessly alleges sets the stage for some kind of huge election scam. On Twitter, he cited a whole slew of supposed frauds that are committed amidst mail-in voting systems, but none of what he claimed has any relationship to reality. In reality, Trump seems paranoid about losing in November, so he’s interested in keeping people from voting, it seems.

Trump tweeted:

‘The United States cannot have all Mail In Ballots. It will be the greatest Rigged Election in history. People grab them from mailboxes, print thousands of forgeries and “force” people to sign. Also, forge names. Some absentee OK, when necessary. Trying to use Covid for this Scam!’

Again — none of that has any relationship to reality. Does Trump really want us to take him seriously when he claims that there’s uh, some kind of mail-in voting fraud gang? Who are the members of this imaginary gang that harasses people into signing “thousands” of ballots at a time? Where is the evidence for his claim that these huge frauds take place? There is, in reality, no evidence. It’s imaginary.

Back in early April at a White House press conference, Trump came up with an attempt at evidence for his claim that there’s some kind of huge voter fraud looming in the U.S., but his claimed evidence was an outright lie. He pointed to the “state of California, where they settled with Judicial Watch saying that a million people should not have been voting,” but no such settlement exists which admits that a “million people” were voting illegally. It just doesn’t. In reality, California authorities agreed to remove inactive voter registrations from the rolls. There’s no apparent evidence that a single illegal vote was cast.

Among other posts this Sunday morning, Trump also re-upped his conspiracy theory that former Florida Congressman Joe Scarborough was involved in the death of a staffer in his office. That conspiracy theory has no relationship to reality whatsoever.
