A full hand recount of votes in the presidential race is under way in Georgia, where Joe Biden led Donald Trump by more than 14,000 votes with 99% of precincts reporting as of Friday afternoon.
But that didn’t stop Trump from taking a flamethrower to the statewide audit process moments ago via his preferred medium.
The Consent Decree signed by the Georgia Secretary of State, with the approval of Governor @BrianKempGA, at the urging of @staceyabrams, makes it impossible to check & match signatures on ballots and envelopes, etc. They knew they were going to cheat. Must expose real signatures!
….What are they trying to hide. They know, and so does everyone else. EXPOSE THE CRIME!
Fox News is coming in for criticism over a promotional video in which its opinion hosts echo Donald Trump’s baseless claims about the presidential election, which he lost to Joe Biden but which he refuses to concede.
“Oh my god,” Andrew Laurence of Media Matters for America, a liberal media watchdog group, wrote on Twitter. “Fox is running a promo of their ‘opinion’ hosts casting doubt on the election results and I guess trying to keep their rabid viewers sated.”
