You’ll notice a new disclaimer on President Trump’s tweets below. Twitter claims “official sources called this election differently.” Hmm.
Are the “official sources” news outlets like the AP, Fox News, CBS, and NBC? Because if so, they are not official. They are predictions.
Nothing is official until the electors get together on December 14.
What a mess.
Here’s the latest from POTUS on Pennsylvania and Georgia…
Just a couple of days ago, it looked like the nominally Republican Secretary of State for Georgia (for the Media Matters goobers, I’m referring to the US state, not the country defeated 0-1 by North Macedonia yesterday in that sport where grown men run around a field in short pants and drop on the ground and scream whenever anyone looks at them hard) Brad Raffensperger was finally coming out of a semi-comatose state and comprehending the disaster he was presiding over when he ordered a hand recount of ballots, see Good News, Georgia Sec of State Announces Hand Recount of the Vote.
A recount, per se, would catch some shenanigans but the real purpose of the recount was to get a handle on which ballots cast were actually legal. In other words, did signatures match on absentee ballots, could one verify the chain of custody of the ballots, etc. Now it seems that all the Georgia GOP really got was a cursory recount under an extreme time crunch.
