Donald Trump must be a glutton for punishment, and the people counting voter ballots in Georgia must be exhausted. The first time they counted votes via machines, such as those produced by Dominion, things went well. And Trump lost by 12,000-plus votes.
After the president went on his voter fraud warpath, they had to count the ballots by hand. And POTUS lost by over 12,000 again, according to CNN. So, the president requested a second recount, which he can legally request, but he will lose for the third time by 12,000 votes.
This recount currently is by machine rather than by hand. Keep in mind that the results do not matter. Trump has said that six months from now he will still believe the election was stolen from him. In other words, he will continue to undermine our democracy, America.
Once the third recount is done, the Secretary of State will release the recount data online:
‘Voting in Georgia when you are not a resident in Georgia is a felony.’
Governor Brian Kemp was offended by Trump’s request. His office offered a statement about Trump’s words. It read:
‘Georgia law prohibits the Governor from interfering in elections. The Secretary of State, who is an elected constitutional officer, has oversight over elections that cannot be overridden by executive order.’
“Look at the election you have coming up [in Georgia] right now. You’re using the same garbage machinery, Dominion” — Trump demoralizes Republicans by suggesting their votes don’t matter because the upcoming Senate runoffs in Georgia are rigged’
The Vox reporter Aaron Ruper tweeted:

Rupar tweeted once again:
‘”I’m ashamed that I endorsed him” — Trump disses Brian Kemp for not doing more to help him steal the election in Georgia’

The Republican leadership had mixed views about Trump coming to Georgia to support the Republican opponents of Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. They fear that instead of drawing out more voters to an election he has cast as fraudulent, he will rant on about the Republican Secretary of State. Brad Raffensperger was not loyal to Trump. Instead, he upheld his oath to protect our democracy.
‘Why won’t Governor @BrianKempGA, the hapless Governor of Georgia, use his emergency powers, which can be easily done, to overrule his obstinate Secretary of State, and do a match of signatures on envelopes. It will be a “goldmine” of fraud, and we will easily WIN the state….’
‘This claim about election fraud is disputed.’
He went on to talk about the absentee ballots and envelopes:
‘Also, quickly check the number of envelopes versus the number of ballots. You may just find that there are many more ballots than there are envelopes. So simple, and so easy to do. Georgia Republicans are angry, all Republicans are angry. Get it done!”‘
POTUS still ranted on about the photos showing an inauguration crowd far smaller than that of President Barack Obama. Certainly, the sitting president will cling to his perceived grievances and run them over and over in his mind, soothing him at the same time as it invigorates him. He has been the ultimate victim. Strange for a man who was born into a very wealthy home and had millions in his name before he was even a pre-teen.
Fulton County officials released a statement that read:
‘Technicians from Dominion have been dispatched to resolve the issue…The Georgia Secretary of State’s office has also been alerted to the issue and is aware of efforts to resolve the problem.’
Raffensperger said that he was opening investigations into groups allegedly trying to register out-of-state residents to illegally vote in the quickly approaching Senate race.
‘There are those who are exploiting the emotions of many Trump supporters with fantastic claims, half truths and misinformation, and frankly, they are misleading the president as well.’
Secretary of State official Gabriel Sterling claimed a Fulton County elections official caused the Dominion server to crash. The cause was a human error — not following instructions.
