The 2020 election is, without a doubt, one of the strangest events of modern history…and we are still two months away from its weighty conclusion.
This is an election in which the Democratic Party has decided to dive head first into the wild world of conspiracy theories, shifting from 2016’s allegations that Trump is some sort of Russian double agent to 2020’s new narrative: That Donald Trump is going to try to rig the election to become an American dictator.
Let’s now forget that these are the same people who’ve long suggested that Donald Trump didn’t even want to be President, so their flippant changes of opinion should be noted.
Now the left is going even further down this path of hyperbolic battiness after the President challenged the efficacy of North Carolina’s balloting systems.
U.S. President Donald Trump has urged residents in the critical political battleground of North Carolina to try to vote twice in the Nov. 3 election, once by mail and once in person, causing a furor for appearing to urge a potential act of voter fraud.
“Let them send it in and let them go vote,” Trump said in an interview on Wednesday with WECT-TV in Wilmington, North Carolina. “And if the system is as good as they say it is then obviously they won’t be able to vote” in person.
The suggestion sent the left into a furious rage.
The state’s Attorney General Josh Stein, a Democrat, wrote on Twitter that Trump, a Republican, had “outrageously encouraged” North Carolinians “to break the law in order to help him sow chaos in our election.”
Stein wrote: “Make sure you vote, but do NOT vote twice! I will do everything in my power to make sure the will of the people is upheld in November.”
Other officials in North Carolina suggested that voting twice would do no damage, and that there were systems in place to weed out duplicate votes.
