This is crazy.

Former President Donald Trump sent out a flurry of statements on Thursday bashing Joe Biden, Hunter Biden and weighed in on COVID-19. The twice-impeached one-term president continues to regurgitate his big lie of widespread voter fraud that doesn’t exist even though that lie led to the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection. The narcissistic former president’s brain cannot accept that he was defeated in the electoral and popular vote over ten months ago.  Trump has thrown his support behind audits in states that have already been audited, but today he called on an audit of Texas.

“President Trump calls on Greg Abbott to add a “Forensic Audit of the 2020 Election” to the call for the Third Special Session,” Trump said in a statement tweeted out by his spokesperson Liz Harrington since he has been banned from the behemoth site for inciting the attack on the Capitol. “Despite my big win in Texas, I hear Texans want an election audit! You know your fellow Texans have big questions about the November 2020 Election.”

“Texas needs you to act now,” he insisted. “Your Third Special Session is the perfect, and maybe last, opportunity to pass this audit bill. …Your citizens don’t trust the election system, and they want your leadership on this issue, which is the number one thing they care about.”


“Texans know voting fraud occurred in some of their counties. Let’s get to the bottom of the 2020 Presidential Election Scam!” he added.

Here is the complete statement:

Twitter users pounced.

Trump and others filed and lost at least 63 lawsuits to contest the 2020 election results. Despite that, Trump and many of his Republican colleagues claim that the election was rigged — without offering any evidence to back that up.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
