Ari Melber Fact Checks Trump’s Latest False Claims About ‘Illegal Votes’ | MSNBC 1


Without evidence of any illegality, President Donald Trump claims that ‘if you count the legal votes, I easily win.’ MSNBC Senior Legal Analyst Ari Melber says that’s false: “The votes that have been lawfully apportioned, meaning what we’ve been following in each of these states, do not show that. They actually show what we’ve found, which is some states going in both directions, no one to 270." Aired on 11/05/2020.

  1. Trump is not running for President.
    He’s running from prison and will try to avoid it at all costs. Whatever it takes.

      Hey, Lefties. Since your party is so virtuous, honest, and believes in election integrity, I’m sure you won’t mind Trump and his team taking legal action to ensure that every ballot in a battleground state that Biden claims was a legitimate vote. I mean, there’s nothing to hide after all, right? Thanks a lot 👍

    • @Sebastian Addict Sure, as long as the legal action they take is, itself, legal and legitimate. And since there’s nothing to hide, Trump’s tax returns will be released tomorrow, too, of course.

    • @Luis Rodriguez Luis Rodriguez: “If I post something in quotes, people will actually believe that it was said.”
      Luis Rodriguez: “I can therefore make specious insinuations unfounded in reality, and no one will detect my nefarious scheme!”
      Luis Rodriguez: “Of course, if someone uses that tactic to point out the flaws in my own logic, I will whine almost as loudly as the Toddler in Chief about unfairness and meanness and…waaaahhhh!”

      @William Wallace go sit in the corner and drink your grape flavor koolaid, laced with cyanide, you Ptrumpkin cult worshiper!

      @V You misspelled WINNER. Dems and crooked old demented Joe have to cheat to win.

    Stop using the term “false” call it what it is, a “LIE”.

    • @William Wallace the virus originated in China, but through dishonesty and incompetency Trump let us lead the world in infection and deaths and he crashed our economy.

    • @Jack Clarke The Souls of the Lost of All the UNNECESSARY DEATHS

    • Adaptation of the frozen song:
      🎶Let it burn🔥, let it burn🎶
      Ouch truth hurts.

    • @Gimbalos Morkinar LOL, btw, it wasn’t the twinkies that made me fat, it was Hostess

      @hawkturkey Republicans also laughed at President Jimmy Carter for wanting to invest in solar energy, so they sabotaged all his efforts! Now China is the leader in solar and wind , in the whole world.

  6. How does anyone ? vote for Trump ?

  7. If Trump wanted to protect the integrity of our election, he wouldn’t have hired Dejoy, Republicans wouldn’t have allowed only 1 drop box for counties in TEXAS!!!!

    • If the liberals don’t have anything to hide why won’t they let The Observers do their jobs on both sides. Problem with mail-in votes are it is too easy for voter fraud. The Democrats have been preparing for this for the past 6 months by pushing that fear button saying you need to vote by mail. I guess the Democrats are going to try to get voting by phone next….

    • Rodney Bean – Where’s the fraud? You are aware that Trump voters were just as welcome to vote by mail as Biden voters, right? Mail-in ballots are nothing new. There are just more of them this time, and for good reason. You are being ridiculous.

    • Republicans have been trying to make it harder for people to vote for years and the recent Supreme Court decision to gut the 1964 Voting Rights Act will continue to erode our access to voting. We should be making it easier for people to vote but the GOP knows that the more voters actually vote, the less likely the GOP wins since people who pay attention know they only care about the rich and the only thing they ever do is tax cuts for the rich, just like in 2017. The rich got tax cuts and the rest of us got screwed! Now they wanna repeal the ACA (Obamacare), & replace it with NOTHING! They’ve had 10 years to come up with a plan and they have NOTHING. They want to take away healthcare from 30 million Americans and 140 million Americans with pre-existing conditions won’t be able to afford health insurance, including the 10 million Americans who have been diagnosed with Covid! Take away healthcare DURING A PANDEMIC is the entire GOP plan! They are heartless as well as complicit in ALL OF TRUMP’S CRIMES as they stood by and did NOTHING to stop him!! Every single GOP enabler needs to be held accountable for their inaction while Trump tried to destroy our country. I pray that we can get past this dark time in our history. Trump’s MAGA MORONS cult followers are alot more numerous than I thought & they are all in with Trump being a wannabe facist dictator so they don’t want a democracy they want a facist police state. Sad.

    • @J Groovy They don’t have common sense. they parrot what they hear on fox news, not realizing how idiotic and moronic they sound. but i bet they don’t realize that trump started to cheat the minute he slowed down the USPS and for no good or valid reason, all of a sudden right before an election, no suspicions there, right?
      btw, trump mails in his own ballot.

      @Rodney Bean Russian bot go back home to Putin! Lock Trump up!

  8. He can’t help himself😂. Dude…it’s over

  9. He started out lying can’t listen to the lies anymore it’s sickening.

    • Well, we can’t say Trump didn’t warn us that he would pull this crap.

    • Richard Christie | November 5, 2020 at 9:18 PM | Reply

      Fox ran the whole rant. It was far worse than this tiny segment.

    • Perhaps Ari should fact check all his past episodes where he claims large victory for Biden in states like Florida and Ohio, Republicans losing seats in House, Democrats gaining control of Senate. Thanks.

    • @MilkCow yes, perhaps Ari should, but at least we know that Ari has the integrity to admit when he is wrong, and wouldn’t hesitate a minute to do so. Now can you say that about your MORONIC leader?? I didn’t think so. it takes a bigger man to admit when he’s wrong, and donald doesn’t possess that type of integrity, never has and never will.

    • Yet you listen to Brian Williams LOL!!!!!!

  10. Who can listen to this malarkey and think, gosh that’s who I want as president of the US?

  11. Dog Whistle all his Brown Shirts are hitting the streets. Stay safe and be careful. Kia Kaha Arohanui from New Zealand.💙💙💙💙💙💙

    This man is Delusional. He and Jr. Actually think they won in every state. Someone please get him help. He’s embarrassing THE United states

    • Deb Hammersley | November 5, 2020 at 10:02 PM | Reply

      The Wraith – Yes unbelievable isn’t it.

    • @Constituent A with the amount of ballot destruction that’s been reported it’s undoubtedly more. Leave your echo chamber and get out among people who can think

    • Deb Hammersley | November 5, 2020 at 10:04 PM | Reply

      Susan Dwyer – Yes that needs to be stopped before it happens.

    • 74 yrs old to old for help he has lived a life of crap and that’s what he will be known for no matter what happens in the election

      Best president we’ve ever had the most anti-war president we’ve ever had.. pro-energy president we’ve ever had so you can KI$$ $1.90.. a gallon gas hello $6.00…

  14. It’s the suit and the office that give this madman an air of respectability.
    Without that, he’d be a ranting lunatic on the street.

    • Respectability? He has no respectability.. he’s just a con man that is very easily spotted…

    • William Wallace | November 5, 2020 at 8:55 PM | Reply

      Says the the antifa thug that burns down already struggling black businesses.

    • @S EE I totally agree. I see a big sloppy freak in a cheap fitting suit and a dollar store tie that PURPOSELY paints his face ORANGE, wears lifts in his shoes, and the list goes on and on.

    Trying to burn the house down on his way out the door because he’s a spoiled rotten vindictive baby.

  16. The fool’s trying to make his own rules. The current rules aren’t working for Crooked Donald.

  17. #45 is attacking the fundamentals of American democracy; what else is new?.

  18. عبدالعزيز | November 5, 2020 at 8:22 PM | Reply

    This behavior exactly like a Dictators..
    He cannot stop himself being more Stupid..

  19. Fraud is the only thing Trump knows.

    It’s embarrassing to have a President that lies every time he opens his mouth.
