Donald Trump keeps falsely insisting that Joe Biden and China are secretly conspiring to rig the election, or some hallucination along those lines. But back in the real world, the evidence is clear that Russia is once again trying to rig the election on Trump’s behalf – and Trump’s own FBI Director Christopher Wray testified to as much during congressional hearings today.
Suffice it to say that Donald Trump is allergic to these kinds of facts, and he’s not happy about it. Trump tweeted this about Wray: “But Chris, you don’t see any activity from China, even though it is a FAR greater threat than Russia, Russia, Russia. They will both, plus others, be able to interfere in our 2020 Election with our totally vulnerable Unsolicited (Counterfeit?) Ballot Scam. Check it out!”
Okay, where do we even start with this nonsense? Donald Trump now seems to be arguing that China and Russia are both going to meddle in the election, and they’ll only be able to pull it off because ballots are counterfeit. Counterfeit?. Really? Just how thoroughly has this guy’s brain rotted? In any case, Trump has been publicly gripping about Chris Wray for quite some time, but there are no indications that Trump has the muscle to even try to fire him. As is so often the case these days, Trump is reduced to simply whining that things aren’t going his way.
