Perhaps No One Told Trump How Vote Counting Works. Twitter Is Here To Help

Donald Trump seems strangely in the dark about the process of counting votesor at least he’s pretending to be. Trump has been lamenting that he had big leads in an array of states as the polls initially closed in them but that his margins disappeared as more and more votes ― especially those cast by mail ― were tallied. On Friday afternoon, the president tweeted his latest gripe suggesting that the election must be rigged because it looks like Democrat Joe Biden is going to win it. I had such a big lead in all of these states late into election night, only to see the leads miraculously disappear as the days went by. Perhaps these leads will return as our legal proceedings move forward!– Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 6, 2020 Trump has spoken and acted as if he doesn’t understand that a winner isn’t chosen until ALL the votes are counted, and that a lead can go back and forth until a state’s tally is complete. Natuurlik, Trump also claimed that testing more people for COVID-19 is the reason the pandemic continues to spike in the U.S. Dan Rather chimed in Thursday evening with a witty suggestion on how Trump might grasp what’s happening: Maybe if we explained to Donald Trump that he is “in debt” to the counted ballots in many states, he could better understand the “math.”— Dan Rather (@DanRather) November 6, 2020 Other Twitter users were happy to dump cold water on the president’s dubious hot take. It’s almost like more people voted for the other mob, and then people started counting those other votes…— Brett McKay (@BMcSport) November 7, 2020 Has he ever watched elections returns? It’s not miraculous, the results change as votes are counted from different places. Good GOD.— Beth Shelburne (@bshelburne) November 7, 2020 You had a lead when the vote counting began. You lost your lead as the vote counting continued and mail-in ballots became included within the count, in accordance with legal protocol.Your lead won’t return.Lemme know if anything else is unclear donny 👍🏻— Will Poulter (@PoulterWill) November 7, 2020 Voters took the initiative to vote early & mail their LEGAL ballots. This particular group wanted you out of office. Why are you now acting surprised as more envelopes are being opened? Sit down Sir!— Edmund Kagire (@kagire) November 6, 2020 \”I told my base to not vote by mail and am now confused as to why I’m losing as they count the votes by mail.\I wish it was stupidity and not malicious intent to agitate the stupid. Then I could laugh more lmao— SK (Retired E-Gamer) (@Speedkicks) November 6, 2020 You can’t bully actual votes, Donald, they’re literally just records in a database.— Max Burns (@themaxburns) November 6, 2020 Knowing his dupes will believe utter nonsense like this, inflaming the nation and delegitimizing the electoral system to feed his sick and twisted narcissism.— Steve Metz (@steven_metz) November 6, 2020 Trump is the guy at the end of the bar. He always has been. He has a simplistic understanding of how things work and impatience for “well actually” explanations, which sound to him like spin. (Plus throw in massive narcissism.)— Tim Carney (@TPCarney) November 6, 2020 To be honest, this has been the longest and worst adaptation of Richard the Third I have ever witnessed.— John Smith (son of Harry Leslie Smith) (@Harryslaststand) November 6, 2020
