President Donald Trump showed his true colors as a manipulative fascist demagogue on Thursday by lying that voter fraud is widespread, claiming again that “millions and millions” of fraudulent votes were cast.
“In many places, like California, the same person votes many times. You’ve probably heard about that. They always like to say that’s a conspiracy theory. Not a conspiracy theory, folks,” Hitler said in West Virginia while he was discussing how immigrants will not vote for Republicans, a party whose president has broadly referred to them as rapists, drug dealers, and criminals in general. “Millions and millions of people,” he lied.
There is no proof at all that there’s been vote fraud in America, or that undocumented immigrants filled out millions of illegal ballots, as this lying monster is telling his gullible followers.
Trump has previously lied with absolutely no proof that millions of illegal votes is what made him lose the popular vote by 3 million votes in 2016 against Hillary Clinton, even though it was really because he is an awful, disgusting human being who only became president by lying and being a racist who threatens the well-being of millions of innocent people.
Voter fraud is very rare. A researcher working at Loyola University in Los Angeles looked at a billion ballots and he found just 31 cases of voter impersonation, and an Arizona State University study discovered just 10 cases in a review of ten years of ballots. Government investigations have found few cases to prosecute as well, with just a few convictions nationwide. In the rulings against the state voter ID laws designed to disenfranchise minorities (Republicans hate black and Hispanics), courts have cited a lack of evidence in almost every case.
The president’s own lawyers have argued that voter fraud isn’t real, too.
“All available evidence suggests that the 2016 general election was not tainted by fraud or mistake,” his attorneys wrote in a court filing that was posted by The Washington Post, opposing a recount effort.
The president started a voter fraud commission in 2017 to promote his Hitler-esque “big lie”, but he disbanded it early in 2018 due to several legal fights; it had not discovered any proof of substantial voter fraud, because Donald Trump is a liar. He’s very lucky that the uneducated conservatives who elected him are so gullible. They’ll continue to believe his lies, and that’s what gives Trump his power.
