No matter how harmful it is to the American people, or how dangerous it is to national security, Donald Trump is determined to pretend that he won the 2020 presidential election, that the results will be overturned in court, and that he doesn’t have to begin a transition of power with the man who won the election, Joe Biden. On Saturday night, Trump proved once again that a slashed-earth policy is exactly his style, with tweets that only the most fervent of conspiracy theorists still believe and the rest of the world can only laugh at.
Well, there were hundreds of thousands of votes cast where Republican Poll Watchers were not allowed to “watch”, not even allowed in the counting rooms. Likewise with Fake ballots cast and dead people voting! https://t.co/dqHIhObMLs

On the same day that Trump tweeted all of these ridiculous claims, a judge in Pennsylvania dismissed a court case brought by the Trump campaign and headed by Rudy Giuliani saying that there was no evidence of voter fraud, that Republican poll watchers were not treated any differently than Democratic ones, and that the allegations brought to court by Trump’s people was totally without merit.
Again and again, Trump and his team are defeated in court, and Trump has a long history of claiming voter fraud without any basis for doing so. During the Obama years, the president was illegitimate because he and the Democrats duped Americans with a fake birth certificate. In 2016, his win was totally legit, but millions of undocumented immigrants illegally cast votes for Hillary Clinton. Now, it’s poll watchers. And vote counting machines. And mail-in ballots. And cities with lots of black voters.
