Eric Trump’s Latest Attempt To Question The Election Goes Awry

Eric Trump on Tuesday appeared to continue to deny the 2020 election defeat of his father when he shared this image on Twitter:

Social media users interpreted the graphic as suggesting outgoing President Donald Trump would somehow ultimately end up victorious against President-elect Joe Biden.

The president has so far refused to concede the election and has made baseless allegations of mass voter fraud. He’s stalled the transition process, accused Democrats of rigging the vote and in the early hours of last Wednesday, with millions of ballots still left to count, even made a false declaration of victory.

Eric Trump and his brother, Donald Trump Jr., meanwhile, have assisted their father in spreading conspiracy theories and disinformation about the election in a desperate effort to throw the result into question. 

Last week, Eric Trump was busted for tweeting a fake video that purported to show ballots for his father being burned. He has also conspiratorially tweeted that “people know exactly what is going on in this country.” Earlier Tuesday, Eric Trump was widely mocked on Twitter for urging people to vote — one week late.

Eric Trump shared the graphic without comment.

But critics on Twitter had plenty to say:

CNN Supercut Exposes Election Hypocrisy Of Donald Trump’s Biggest Sycophants

The hypocrisy of President Donald Trump’s biggest sycophants was on full display in a supercut that CNN’s Chris Cuomo aired on Wednesday night.

The montage features footage of prominent Republicans who mocked Democrats as “crybabies” following Trump’s 2016 election victory over then-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

In the video, Kayleigh McEnany, who is now the White House press secretary, says “no one should question” Trump’s win. Fox News’ Sean Hannity calls Democrats “sore losers,” while former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway criticizes them for not accepting the election result, even though Clinton conceded.

Now that Trump is refusing to acknowledge defeat in the 2020 election and making unfounded allegations of mass voter fraud, Cuomo noted how Republicans’ positions on elections have conveniently flipped 180 degrees.

“Shame on them,” Cuomo said. “A wax museum is less cold-blooded than these people are.”

Meanwhile, The Washington Post this week highlighted Fox News personalities’ stunning change in tone about election results with this video:
