Democrats say: Trump Campaign Sets The Stage For Election Night Coup. By Amanda Terkel at the Huffington Post.
The word is going out to the media/left:
“Under no scenario will Donald Trump be declared a … victor on election night,” Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon told reporters Monday, “and we think that that’s really fundamental to how we want to approach tomorrow.” …
Here’s what they say Trump is up to:
President Donald Trump’s election campaign put out an ominous statement Monday, making clear that it is going to fight to make sure every vote will not be counted.
“The [Democratic] operatives are advising surrogates and media to create a smoke screen by casting blame all around — imagining postal delays or falsely claiming that mail-in ballots that have simply not been returned should be considered legitimate votes that need to be counted. None of this will be true, but it will be held up as proof that President Trump’s victory is a so-called ‘Red Mirage.’ No one should fall for it,” read the statement from Justin Clark, Trump deputy campaign manager.
For months, Trump has declared that he believes the winner should be declared on election night.
“Must know Election results on the night of the Election, not days, months, or even years later!” he declared on July 30.
Clark added on Monday that campaign officials “fully anticipate that Democrats will be in court arguing to extend deadlines for accepting and counting votes mailed and received well past deadlines enacted by individual state laws. … The last gasp of the Biden campaign will be ugly and it will be ruthless.”
Sounds reasonable to me. The Democrats are arguing for very lax counting laws, allowing people to vote after the election, for votes to trickle in for many days, and to make it ever easier for lots of voting and cheating.
Reminder: In 2012 in deeply Democrat inner Philadelphia, 108% of registered voters voted for Obama. Excellence in voting, comrades!
