They spoke too soon.
When Joe Biden warned in April that President Donald Trump would “try to kick back the election somehow,” the presumptive Democratic nominee’s concern was dismissed by personalities on Fox News and Fox Business as fearmongering and a conspiracy theory.
“What an idea, what a conjuring,” declared Fox Business host Lou Dobbs, a staunch Trump supporter, at the time.
Those same personalities were exposed on Thursday, however, when Trump tweeted this baseless claim about mail-in voter fraud as a reason for possibly delaying the election.
With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???
