President Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday claiming that ‘surprise ballot dumps’ are to blame for his lead ‘magically disappearing’ overnight.
“Last night I was leading, often solidly, in many key States, in almost all instances Democrat run & controlled,” wrote Trump, adding: “Then, one by one, they started to magically disappear as surprise ballot dumps were counted.”
Trump’s comments come after several key states mysteriously stopped counting ballots on election night for the first time in perhaps ever, after which large batches of votes – seemingly all, or mostly all for Biden – tipped the race towards the former Vice President in Michigan and Wisconsin.
Money manager Edward Dowd suggests it’s ‘mathematically impossible‘ for the nearly all of the overnight votes in Wisconsin to have been for Biden.
Others have noted that there were more votes counted in Wisconsin than the number of people registered to vote:
Sean Davis of The Federalist pointed out the ‘magical ballots’ issue, and was promptly censored for it.
And now we wait for Democrats to finish counting.
And a question:
Is there an honest explanation for why major cities in a First World country cannot count votes in a national election that comes around every 4 years? Are these Democratic-run cities surprised that these elections are being held? This is the stuff of a banana republic.
