Bizarre Excuse Behind Cuckoo GOP-Led Vote Audit | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC


Rachel Maddow looks at what is happening with the pro-Trump ballot-examining spectacle in Maricopa County, Arizona that state senate Republicans are calling an "audit," where observers are reportedly not allowed to share their observations, and a special (?) camera is being used on ballots to look for traces of bamboo to confirm a theory that 40,000 fake ballots were flown in from China.

  1. I’m I alone in feeling very nervous as to what they are doing to these ballots? This needs to stop, and should not have been allowed in the first place

    1. Corrupt dems are so afraid of an audit ??? When they claimed the election was fair and legal.??? They why fight Proving it. Why do democrats refuse to allow or show proof that it was fair. They fight and lie abou

    2. @Wizard of Frobozz Yea, they’re up to something funny in that building. This is the weirdest thing I’ve ever heard of

    3. @Victoria Williams There’s no doubt about what they’re gonna do. There’s enough crazy conspiracy theory clowns in this country to believe it.

    1. TRUMP 2024 LUNATIC!!!! HAHAHAHA!!! Get ready for it, AMERICA MUST get back on top or you’ll be forced to learn Chinese before you know it. Just ask the Uyghurs.

    2. @Alex Hamilton Democrats are so superficial; its quite sad to be guided by arbitrary sociological values of hypocritically “fake liberal” state imposed “selective liberalism”, disguised as social sanctioning, peer pressure, and ultimately social conditioning. Democrats are automaton bots and don’t even realize it!

    3. The real concern is just how easy it was for him to do it, not just that he did it to a country that is among world leaders.

    1. Like China doesn’t use regular paper like the rest of the world does. Sounds racist to me.

  2. They’re basically saying that the problem with our elections as they are now is transparency. Everything clear, legal, honest, above the board…They hate that.

    1. @Andrew No, facts are facts. Facts are stubborn things. Funny that Liberal publications are constantly bragging about how the stole the election yet you continue to deny your own media reports.

      So tell me, did Mark Zuckerberg not spend $400,000,000.00 to illegally put ballot boxes only in Democrat districts and then pay election officials for training that eliminated the chain of custody so that ballots couldn’t be verified?
      Is that not a fact?

      Would you have been OK if Trump had illegally but ballot boxes only in Republican districts and eliminated the chain of custody like Zuckerberg did?
      Show us whether or not you are a hypocrite.

    2. @grandma k. Also got to love how they care what Biden spends, but they did say a word when Trump spent 20 trillion over 4 years.

    3. Arizona.
      Trump is ahead by 250 thousand votes.
      At the moment, almost 950,000 ballots have been declared illegal. Almost all of them were intended for Biden.
      Biden won 10,200 in Arizona.

    4. @Brian Daniels Dummy,there were already audits done before Jan 6th. You’re trying to justify an insurrection where people were killed?

  3. ah yes Bamboo, because 1: it’s well known every where you go no matter what, bamboo is there
    2: Bamboo sheds itself all over(it’s always such a mess).
    3: wait what bamboo?

    1. Next they’re going to be searching the ballots for traces of taco shells to make sure Mexico didn’t interfere either. If they smell vodka, they’ll let it slide. They’re okay with Russia

    2. @Shin Thanks for the grammar teaching. The Swiss are influencing the USA elections? Strange, they claim to be neutral in every conflict.

  4. As much as you want to go and say yeah there’s no way there’s people that crazy on the world. They just keep finding a way to prove you wrong.

  5. I have no doubt that the FBI is looking into these auditors. And eventually, the puppet behind the curtain will be exposed and sent to prison.

    1. @Astrobrant2 PHOENIX – “Election security specialists with high-powered policy groups are calling for federal monitors to oversee the Arizona Senate’s hand recount of 2.1 million ballots cast in Maricopa County.

      Citing violations of voting and election laws, representatives of the Brennan Center for Justice, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, and Protect Democracy urged the Department of Justice to protect ballots and prevent voter intimidation.

      “Ballots that are protected under federal law are in imminent danger of being stolen, defaced, or irretrievably damaged, and Arizona citizens are in imminent danger of being subject to unlawful voter intimidation,” the four security specialists wrote in the April 29 letter.”

    2. @Astrobrant2
      When voter information for a federal election is in the hands of an insurrectionist and an illegitimate private group that will probably seek to nullify legitimate votes in favor of the loser in the 2020 presidential election, I’d say it’s a hard fact. The FBI has jurisdiction.

  6. Idea, when the arena becomes unavailable take the team, the voting machines, and the ballots to Mar a Largo, plenty of room there! That’ll fix it.

    1. Anyone know it that parking lot increased in real estate value since the infamous press briefing? Other than by hyperinflation?

      This event is going to be sooooooooo funny… I mean… ” THE BIG LIE ”
      Going to take soooo many by surprise … ARE YOU READY ??? GONNA GET ALL ” WOKE ”

    1. Sad part is that both sides are doing it and you probably think it’s just the republicans…

  7. The only “bamboo” they’ll find,
    is that the rest of us got bamboozled!
    Yup, one of these parties is not like the other.
    Keep well and keep on, cheers

  8. Obviously they are looking in the wrong place to find ‘bamboo’: they need to go get a CT scan of their head to locate the foreign material!

  9. Their crooked schemes are so ham-fisted and clumsy that you really do expect to hear the Looney Tunes theme kick in afterwards.
    Like millions of others, I’m tired of thinking: “it would be hilarious if only…”
    Bu-buh, bu-buh, bu-there’s no more people.

  10. At least magicians tell you they are going to decieve you. These goons are distracting you to steal sensitive info.

  11. Congratulations Rachel on keeping a relatively straight face while doing this story. I laughed so hard at the bamboo reference.

      This event is going to be sooooooooo funny… I mean… ” THE BIG LIE ”
      Going to take soooo many by surprise … ARE YOU READY ??? GONNA GET ALL ” WOKE ”

    2. @D Bahb June Dale didn’t say that Rachel Maddow is straight. She said she kept a straight face. Perhaps you’re having trouble with your English. Stick to comments written in your native language of Russian.

  12. My daughter said she tried to watch the Netflix QAnon doc & she said the people in it don’t seem capable of even explaining what Q has claimed.
