You wanna know why Lord Damp Nut lost Arizonastan? DEEP STATE AND SHARPIES!!1!
Trump allies on Wednesday fanned false claims that GOP votes in Arizona are being rejected over the use of Sharpies, as the president continues to question the integrity of the election. Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs said it was “absolutely not the case” that voting with a Sharpie somehow nullified a vote. “Poll workers are not going to give voters pens that are going to invalidate their ballot,” Hobbs, a Democrat, told KTAR News Wednesday. “And people who are voting from home use Sharpies all the time.”
Ballots in Maricopa County were arranged so that if a Sharpie did bleed through the page, it wouldn’t cause an unreadable mark on the other side, Hobbs said. She also emphasized that the state had a clear-cut adjudication process for counting ballots that could not be read by tabulators…. But conservatives sowed new confusion over their use Wednesday on Twitter as ballot counting continued in the state. “Apparently the use of Sharpie pens in GOP precincts is causing ballots to be invalidated,” tweeted Matt Schlapp, who heads the American Conservative Union. “Could be huge numbers of mostly Trump supporters.”
I’m guessing that the true Republican probably took their Trump Sharpie that they bought on the Trump Store from the Trump Campaign to vote, and those bastard Arizona Libtards something-something-something ELECTION FRAUD!!1!
Also, Arizonastan getting called for Handsome Joe Biden so early was a clear act of sabotage by [checks notes] Fox News!!1!
“That mirage of victory was pierced when Fox News called Arizona for former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. at 11:20 p.m., with just 73 percent of the state’s vote counted. Mr. Trump and his advisers erupted at the news. If it was true that Arizona was lost, it would call into doubt on any claim of victory the president might be able to make.
“What ensued for Mr. Trump was a night of angry calls to Republican governors and advice from campaign aides that he ignored, leading to a middle-of-the-night presidential briefing in which he made a reckless and unsubstantiated string of remarks about the democratic process. Standing in the East Room at 2:30 a.m., he dismissed the election as a ‘fraud’ and claimed he wanted to stop the counting of votes and leave the results to the Supreme Court. … Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, was also in touch with Rupert Murdoch, the Fox News owner, as the night wore on. And on Wednesday morning, Mr. Trump’s campaign manager, Bill Stepien, insisted the president would win Arizona by 30,000 votes. …
“Mr. Kushner was making calls, looking for what he described as a ‘James Baker-like’ figure who could lead the legal effort to dispute the tabulations in different states, according to a person briefed on the discussions. (Mr. Baker led George W. Bush’s successful recount case in 2000.)”
Wait. Jared-the-Jenius didn’t have legal counsel already? Bwah-ha-ha, who are these mooks?
