President Donald Trump embarked on what could best be described as a long broadcast of grievances on Sunday morning, speaking to Fox News sycophantic host Maria Bartiromo in her first post-election television interview, while suggesting baselessly that his own FBI and the Department of Justice were “involved”. with a “rigged” election against him.
Since his decisive loss in the election to President-elect Joe Biden earlier this month, the president has been locked up in the White House tweeting disorderly plots about widespread electoral fraud while his “elite strike force” legal team Repeatedly tried to overturn the election. laughed out of court.
As the Trump team suffers another series of humiliating defeats as its appeal in Pennsylvania was rejected by an all-Republican panel of federal judges and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court dismissed a Republican lawsuit to declare the mail-in ballots unconstitutional, Trump called Bartiromo. Sunday morning futures to declaim and rave about how the election was “stolen” from him.
Bartiromo, who has heavily amplified the president’s bogus electoral fraud plots since the election, essentially handed his hour-long show to the president, giving him a free platform to sometimes ramble and incoherently repeat lies and unchallenged lies. Much of Trump’s attention was on the unsubstantiated claim that Dominion Voting Systems – which was in use in some key states and counties – had used corrupt software to return millions of Trump votes to Biden.
“We have affidavits from many people talking about what was going on with the machines that they had problems,” Trump said at the start, baselessly claiming that they had already “caught” the machines moving thousands of votes. from “my account to Biden’s account”.
He also took issue with large cities and counties in the Rust Belt states overwhelmingly voting for Biden via mail-in ballots, complaining about the huge slices of Biden votes that were reported late on election night and later. during the week.
“This election was over and then they did dumps, they call them dumps, big massive dumps in Michigan, Pennsylvania and everywhere,” he exclaimed. “If you take a look at yourself, take a look at just about every state we’re talking about every swing state we’re talking about, and they did these huge dumps of votes and all of a sudden, I went from winning a lot to losing a little, and in some cases it took a long time to do it.
Throughout the segment, the president repeatedly returned to a handful of comfortable talking points, such as his belief that “Joe Biden did not get 16 million more votes than Barack Hussein Obama” because of a big plot to destroy it.
“We won the elections easily! There’s no way Joe Biden got 80 million votes. There’s no way Joe Biden will beat Barack Obama in black communities in different cities, ”Trump grumbled. “This election was a fraud. It was a rigged election!
“It’s disgusting!” Bartiromo accepted wholeheartedly. “And we cannot allow the American elections to be corrupt.”
The Fox host also wanted to know where the FBI and DOJ were in terms of investing the President’s “serious accusations” against Dominion, which prompted the President to complain about their “disappearance in action” while suggesting that they were part of the plot against him.
“So you ask a question. These people have been around for a long time and I know the FBI and FBI are great at the levels we’ve been talking about, but it’s inconceivable, ”he growled. “You would think that if you’re in the FBI or the Department of Justice, this is the most important thing you could consider. Where are they? I did not see anything.
The President also repeatedly cited former FBI Director James Comey, his favorite “Deep State” target, while complaining that the high-profile Durham Report which he hoped would prove his Spygate allegations on the Obama administration never materialized.
“People don’t understand that, they’ve been here for a long time,” he huffed. “Some have served a lot of different presidents and they have their own opinions. All I can say is I didn’t hear, with all the fraud that’s been going on, no one came to me and said, ‘Oh the FBI got it, you know , the people who make this game. ‘ “
“The FBI is watching Dominion, which nobody even knows where they are based, nobody even knows where the votes are being counted,” Trump continued. “You know that votes and the Dominion,” they say, “are counted in foreign countries, okay? Can you believe this? Now Dominion is also based in a number of foreign countries one of them is Canada and Canada refuses to use Dominion and they are based there.
The president apparently suggesting that the FBI is covering Dominion is similar to the baseless allegations by his former lawyer Sidney Powell that the CIA is involved in an alleged vote-rigging scheme, which it says also included late Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez, the liberal philanthropist George. Soros and Chinese Communist Money.
While Powell has been removed from Trump’s legal team for failing to provide any evidence to support his claims and accused Republican Georgia Governor Brian Kemp of accepting bribes from Dominion, Trump has targeted Kemp for certifying Georgia’s election results for Biden.
“The governor did nothing. He did absolutely nothing. I am ashamed to have approved it, ”moans the president.
And when Trump wasn’t blaming fellow Republicans or his own intelligence community for not finding a way to subvert the will of the people and keep them in the White House, he was throwing bombs at the justice system.
“From what everyone is saying – and I don’t even think we have to prove it – they say I was doing so much better than they thought they were, they panicked and they started to vote after voting very quickly and checking the name Biden upstairs, ”he mumbled.
“We have incredible stories, but we don’t have the right to prove ourselves. They say you don’t have the quality. I said I would like to file with the lawyers. I would like to file a beautiful, beautiful lawsuit, ”continued Trump. “They say, ‘Sir, you don’t have the quality.’ I said, “I don’t have the quality, you mean as President of the United States, I don’t have the quality? What kind of justice system is it? And the judges stay away.
