Trump’s Downfall

One of many riffs on a scene from the German movie Downfall released shortly after the November 2020 election. Apologies, but I don’t know who made it. Please let me know if you know.

From the video:

Depending on whether he was ahead or behind, Trump either wanted to stop the count or keep counting.*

There are a number of people in his administration that Trump may have given covid to.*

Trump repeatedly claimed that voter fraud was responsible for his failure to win the popular vote in 2016.*

He convened a fraud task force in February 2017 that disbanded at the end of 2017 after being forced to share its data with all members. The task force never produced any findings of to support Trump claims.*

Trump freely admitted that he was attempting to block US postal service funding in order to try to stop mail-in votes.*

His claims that mail-in voting was especially susceptible to fraud was at odds with evidence from states such as Utah and Arizona with Republican-majority legislatures where mail-in voting is widely used. For example, in the 2018 Utah midterm election, 90% of the 1,082,972 ballots cast were by mail.**

No evidence of fraud was reported in that election. Utah’s state legislature is 80% Republican.*

In the 2018 Arizona midterm election, 78% of the 2,409,910 million votes cast were by mail.**

The Heritage Foundation, which obsessively documents cases of voter fraud around the country, documented no cases of voter fraud for either election.*
