President Donald Trump is continuing to refuse to accept the results of the recent presidential election, which he lost. On Monday afternoon, he insisted on Twitter that “fake votes” were getting uncovered in Nevada, but there’s no real evidence for this claim. Trump and his allies have pushed a dizzying array of bombastic conspiracy theories, and during a weekend appearance on Fox News, top Trump ally Rudy Giuliani even suggested that an “order” could have come from the top for local Democratic officials to fabricate Biden votes, which is just totally bananas and disconnected from reality.

Trump tweeted, in part, as follows:

‘Nevada is turning out to be a cesspool of Fake Votes. [Matt Schlapp] & [Adam Laxalt] are finding things that, when released, will be absolutely shocking!’

With his reference to a large “threshold identification,” Trump appears to be trying to say that the number of irregularities found among ballots has been substantial, as if “threshold of identification” would have been more explanatory. In fact, Trump is wrong.

Laxalt and Schlapp held a press conference in Clark County, Nevada, on Sunday, where Schlapp claimed that “hundreds” of ballots had been cast in the names of deceased voters in the state. As supposed evidence, Schlapp named two voters who a government computer database indicated had submitted ballots despite their deaths in 2017 — but the database did not indicate whether these supposed ballots had been counted, and neither did the database seem to conclusively confirm that an actual ballot had been cast in either of these deceased voters’ names. Issues like clerical errors and computer glitches could potentially easily explain the computer database listings. Plenty of “evidence” for the broader “dead people voting” conspiracy has already been debunked.

At the Trump campaign’s Sunday Clark County press conference, Schlapp also claimed that a so-called whistleblower had seen a van marked with Biden/ Harris campaign gear in which individuals were opening ballots and refilling envelopes with ballots that were, presumably, in favor of the Democratic ticket. This notion is nonsense. Despite the fact that it’s 2020, the Trump campaign produced no video of this alleged event, the whistleblower — who presumably had a smartphone on them and could have captured footage at some point — did not speak publicly, and Schlapp seems to have failed to explain why this alleged fraud was conducted in plain sight. Trump and his allies are pushing harebrained clownery and expecting the American people to take them seriously.
