At around 12:45am eastern time, Joe Biden – fresh off CNN calling Minnesota for him and Fox News calling Arizona for him – took the stage and said he was confident he’ll win the election once all the votes are counted.
Donald Trump then promptly had a total meltdown, posting this histrionic and factually false tweet: “We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election. We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!”
Within minutes, Twitter covered up Trump’s tweet with a warning label which read “Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process.”
It appears Donald Trump is about to take the stage and falsely declare victory in a rage, but at this point most people are just going to laugh at him.
