“In a completely demented Truth Social rant, Donald Trump stretched reality in order to demand that he either be declared the rightful winner of the 2020 election, or that he be given another election. This came after he falsely claimed that the FBI and social media companies interfered with the 2020 election, but if that’s the case, couldn’t we demand a new 2016 election? Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

Donald Trump is throwing the meltdown of all meltdowns right now over the alleged FBI whistleblower, who says that the FBI kind of put the breaks a little bit on the hunter Biden story before the 2020 election. Because of course, as they said, the FBI didn’t want to interfere with another presidential election. Um, and Donald Trump takes that to mean, of course, that the FBI did interfere by not interfering and therefore we should hold a new election immediately, or just go ahead and declare him the president of the United States, whichever works best for us, I guess. So here’s what Trump posted on truth social Monday evening. It is this. So now it comes out conclusively that the FBI buried the hunter Biden laptop story before the election, knowing that if they didn’t Trump would’ve easily won the 20, 20 presidential election, which he put in quotes as if it’s a direct quote from somebody, but it wasn’t a direct quote from anybody. He, he made it up and put it in quotes as if somebody had said that there is massive fraud and election interference at a level never seen before in our country remedy declare the rightful winner or, and this would be the minimal solution declare the 20, 20 election irreparably compromised and have a new election immediately.
All right. I, I guess that’s it folks gotta head back to the polls later this week, re vote for president willing to bet Trump would still lose that, but more importantly, there’s literally no remedy whatsoever in United States, law or constitution. Um, that allows for that to even happen. So even if what he was saying was accurate, which it is not, and I’ll get more to that in a second. There’s still, literally nothing could be done about it. I mean, technically if president Biden came out today and said, Hey, guess what? Democrats stole the election. I here’s how we did it. Here’s all of our documents. What are you gonna do? Like legally speaking, we don’t have a remedy for that in this country. that would be unprecedented. So we couldn’t just be like, all right, well, we’ll just have a new election next Tuesday, if that’s cool with everybody. Right. Okay. We’re good. No, like we would be thrust into absolute chaos because there’s no legal remedy on the books for what Donald Trump wants to happen. So again, can’t even happen, but more importantly, this hunter Biden bull crap than all these Republicans are jumping on. And of course it got kick started last week when they decided to cherry pick what mark Zuckerberg said during an interview with Joe Rogan, where he said that he thinks some people from Facebook may have been contacted by the FBI about
Misinformation on the platform. Joe Rogan said, was that about the hunter Biden story and Zuckerberg just like he told Congress a year ago said no, so, okay, there, you have it. He didn’t say what they said. He said, and then of course you have this FBI whistleblower who says that, yep. The FBI decided right before the 2020 election, they weren’t gonna push it with the hunter Biden investigation at that time because they didn’t want to be seen as interfering with another presidential election, which of course is a callback to James Comey in 2016, who came out with the October surprise saying we’re investigating Hillary again, except they weren’t actually investigating Hillary again. They were investigating somebody else associated with her. So Comey came out and made this completely false declaration and then had to walk it back, I think two or three days later. But the damage had been done at that point.
That was the first time her poll numbers took a significant enough dip for Donald Trump to overtake her and win the election. Two weeks later, go back and look at the polling data. Even when WikiLeaks released all those DNC emails, her poll numbers didn’t drop. They only dropped to the point where Trump could beat her in the electoral vote. Clearly not the popular vote after Comey made that announcement that caused irreparable harm and gave Trump the election. So using Trump’s own logic, if the FBI interfered in an election, then we get to do a do over.”
