If you couldn’t tell by Hillary Clinton’s numerous claims that President Donald Trump somehow cheated the 2016 election, the Democrats are absolutely positive that if anyone wins besides their candidate, there has to be some sort of foul play involved.
Hence, the whole Russian collusion scandal. And hence the fact that Joe Biden now has an army of lawyers at his side to make sure Trump plays fair.
And yes, they do fear him that much.
According to USA Today, Biden and his campaign have a “very real concern” that President Trump will try to suppress the vote, because, well, you know, that’s what racists do.
Biden told a group of his supporters Wednesday during a conference video what they were going to do about Trump’s supposed plan to win.
He said, “Well, first of all, to continue to shout from the rooftops: ‘Be careful – he’s coming.’”
Now, I have to stop here, because, well, did he actually just say that? ‘Be careful – he’s coming?’ As if the President is the Big Bad Wolf, seeking to steal, kill, and destroy.
A little dramatic, don’t you think? But anyway…
Biden added, “So here’s what we’re doing, we’re continuing to fight any effort to exploit the pandemic for political purposes, support the countless state and local officials working like hell to make voting safe and accessible for citizens, especially the most vulnerable, or call out local rules that don’t adequately ensure access to vote.”
But here’s where it gets really interesting.
“We put together 600 lawyers and a group of people throughout the county who are going into every single state to try to figure out whether chicanery is likely to take place.”
In case you didn’t know, “chicanery” is a fancy word for trickery, which is, of course, precisely what Biden expects of Trump. He has, in fact, told his supporters, “The fact is that this is a fella who is literally trying to take away the funding for the post office so they can’t deliver the ballots. Not a joke.”
Neither is this the first time that Biden has suggested that Trump will try to “steal” the election. He said it just last month to the Washington Post as well.
Which, I guess, if it were anywhere near accurate, might be a reason that the former senator stated that in addition to his multitude of lawyers, he also has “over 10,000 people signed up to volunteer.”
However, I’d like to know just what makes Biden think any “stealing” is going to be going on. It’s not like Trump stole the 2016 election or anything, although I’m sure Hillary would argue that he did. How could he, with the Democrats controlling nearly every single aspect of the national security involved?
Justin Clark, who is a senior political adviser and top lawyer for the Trump campaign, says the entire thing is a bunch of lies, according to one Reuters article. “Biden is lying and stoking fear while Democrats are trying to ‘fundamentally change’ how elections are conducted, an apparent reference to their support for widespread mail-in voting.”
Biden, like any Democrat, is trying to instill fear in the American people. While they are busy worried about stopping Trump from any sort of “chicanery,” Biden and his cohorts are completely rewriting our voting system.
Clark said, “They are inserting chaos and confusion into our voting process because it is the only way they can win.”
And he has a point.
For some odd reason, the Democrats think that President Trump has some magical power that gives him unrelenting sway over our election system. It’s why they’ve spent nearly every second of the last three years trying to figure out if and how Russia was involved.
Of course, since they couldn’t find him guilty of any wrong then, they assume he will use that “chicanery” now by stealing the election and suppressing the vote.
If Trump wins, even narrowly, you can bet your lucky stars that Biden’s 600 will right there to examine every move and accuse him of cheating once again.
Only this time it will be, voter suppression, voter suppression, voter suppression.
