In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller, POTUS doubled down on his insane conspiracy theories concerning the ongoing Florida recounts. Trump claimed U.S. elections have been undermined by widespread voter fraud—a myth that has been consistently debunked—and that the only way to combat these alleged crimes is to implement stricter ID laws.
“The Republicans don’t win and that’s because of potentially illegal votes,” Trump whined, presumably about the GOP’s recent midterms defeat. “When people get in line that have absolutely no right to vote and they go around in circles. Sometimes they go to their car, put on a different hat, put on a different shirt, come in and vote again. Nobody takes anything. It’s really a disgrace what’s going on.”
Oh, but it gets worse. Trump went on to suggest that the U.S. voting process should be similar to—wait for it—the process of buying a box of cereal. No, really.
“If you buy a box of cereal—you have a voter ID,” Trump, our nation’s leader, said. “They try to shame everybody by calling them racist, or calling them something, anything they can think of, when you say you want voter ID. But voter ID is a very important thing.”
These comments have understandably sparked plenty of questions: Is Trump truly that ignorant about the country’s voting process? IS he that out of touch with the rest of America? And, has he ever actually set foot inside a grocery store?
He made similar comments during a Florida rally earlier this year.
“We believe that only American citizens should vote in American elections, which is why the time has come for voter ID, like everything else. Voter ID,” Trump told the crowd. “You know, if you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID. You go out and you want to buy anything, you need ID and you need your picture.”
