Trump 'Hereby Claims' Michigan And Inspires Massive Twitter Snark

“唐纳德·特朗普总统试图声称没有星期三他赢得密歇根州的证据, 但是他似乎只能成功地将Twitter评论家激发到snark的新高度. It all started when the president posted two tweets announcing that he was claiming victory in the Wolverine State as well as Pennsylvania, Georgia and North Carolina before they were officially called. We have claimed, for Electoral Vote purposes, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (which won’t allow legal observers) the State of Georgia, and the State of North Carolina, each one of which has a BIG Trump lead. Additionally, we hereby claim the State of Michigan if, in fact,…..— Donald J. 王牌 (@realDonaldTrump) 十一月 4, 2020 …..there was a large number of secretly dumped ballots as has been widely reported!— Donald J. 王牌 (@realDonaldTrump) 十一月 4, 2020 Twitter put a notice on both tweets for being misleading, especially because none of those races had been called. For that reason, many Twitter users found the president’s victory claim dubious at best. I’m no constitutional expert, but I’m pretty sure this isn’t how it works.— Sharky Laguana (@Sharkyl) 十一月 4, 2020 这 2020 election is not the moon. To be clear, there is no winner yet and you cannot just decide to declare victory because you want to.— Megan Pratz (@meganpratz) 十一月 4, 2020 Today I learned that you can just \claim\states before votes are done being counted like you’re planting a flag. #Election2020— Drew Scofield (@DrewScofield01) 十一月 4, 2020 I wonder if Trumps thinks that the Electoral College is an actual school, where you can claim states like school kids on a bus trip claiming \same seats.\I mean, it’s an explanation.— Orin Kerr (@OrinKerr) 十一月 4, 2020 One Twitter user wondered what law allows a candidate to call “dibs” on a state. Y’all I can’t believe we all missed the \Dibs\section of federal election law.— Ryan Famuliner (@RyanFamuliner) 十一月 4, 2020 然而, the president’s tweet ― especially his use of the flowery “hereby claim” phrase ― did inspire others to use his same dubious logic to make their own unlikely dreams come true. I hereby claim the White House, Mar-a-Lago, and Trump Tower in the name of Spain.— Dana Nuccitelli (@dana1981) 十一月 4, 2020 I have claimed, for Electoral Vote purposes, Mordor (which won’t allow hobbits), The Shire, and Rivendale. Moreover, I hereby claim the Lost City of Atlantis for good measure too. So let it be written, so let it be done!— Nomadic Matt (@nomadicmatt) 十一月 4, 2020 I have claimed Chris Evans for husband purposes. That’s how this works, right? I can just make shit up and pretend it’s truth?— Elizabeth Cotignola 😷 🍁 🇮🇹 (@LaDiavolina) 十一月 4, 2020 I claim this planet in the name of Mars!— Nicholas Weaver (@ncweaver) 十一月 4, 2020 I claim this baggy jacket is my king’s robe.I claim this rock is a diamond and want a million dollars for it.I claim this wig hat is a crown, and will defend it to my dying breath…— Karen DaltonBeninato (@kbeninato) 十一月 4, 2020 I claim that I am vengeance, I am the night, I am Batman.— Shelby \VOTE TODAY\Young (@shelby_young) 十一月 4, 2020 I hereby claim health insurance— Moira Donegan (@MoiraDonegan) 十一月 4, 2020 I have claimed, for Deeply Selfish and Unqualified Reasons, a spot in the NASCAR field at Circuit of The Americas— Alanis King (@alanisnking) 十一月 4, 2020 One person did have a suggestion for Trump if he wanted to see if this magical thinking approach really works. At this point, he should try claiming Greenland and see if that works.— Dave Lauer (@dlauer) 十一月 4, 2020
