  1. He’ll get his” WALL” four of them!

  2. t’rump: “I need you to find 11,780 votes. One more than we need to win.”
    Georgia: “But those votes simply don’t exist.”
    t’rump: “Just say you recalculated the number, there’s no harm in that.”
    Georgia: “Umm, that is literal election tampering and fraud. You do know that right?”
    t’rump: “More importantly, do you think I even care about that?
    Everyone: 😳

      You made me laugh, well written. Nothing wrong with finding 11,780 votes, that number will never leave my memory and I love that it’s recorded to protect the other gentleman.

    • This is who Christians support? Wtf.

    • @IM125 from the first day he won the presidency i knew you made the worst mistake.
      In my mind i had two thoughts
      It is either he is the best asset from a foreign adversary to disrupt you
      He is the product of discrimination in your country. Evidence of failure of your education systems to eradicate the disease that is racism. Thought of white privilege still strong

      @dunwundering awake got it.. found the retraction…The recording revealed that The Post misquoted Trump’s comments on the call, based on information provided by a source. Trump did not tell the investigator to “find the fraud” or say she would be “a national hero” if she did so. Instead, Trump urged the investigator to scrutinize ballots in Fulton County, Ga., asserting she would find “dishonesty” there. He also told her that she had “the most important job in the country right now.” A story about the recording can be found here. The headline and text of this story have been corrected to remove quotes misattributed to Trump.

      Do you know who she is? A billionaire philanthropist with strong connections to both the Chinese and American governments. You know, exactly what the right accuses Biden of being in relation to China.

      Bull! Benedict Donald and Russians have blackmail material on all of them. What do you think they were discussing at Helsinki? And all those phone conversations with Putin in spring of 2020? That was how to use the Russian propaganda to overturn the election.

      Jail them devils !

    • Funny enough, Trump may still drain the swamp. He had to become the Seamp Thing to do it, but whatever gets the job done I suppose.

    • I also hope so

  5. Christo van der Westhuizen | March 10, 2021 at 2:21 PM | Reply

    Yes, interfering in elections is ilegal!

  6. Pretty specific number he’s asking for…
    Just enough to push to his side?

  7. I hope the Feds will follow through on the investigation of Trump and everyone around him that is complicit. That includes each and every adult child, members of his legal team and administration, and every member of Congress and Senate that promoted the false claims election tampering and fraud. They should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and sent to federal prison!

      @Anthony Tringali You have the grammatical skills of a 5 year old. Is your translating device acting up again, Ivan?

  9. This is disgraceful and will effect the ability of people’s right to vote.

    • If you’re so concerned about voting then you’ll love Democrats push for automatic voting registration. Can’t manipulate votes when everyone is registered in the system to vote. You should also be outraged at the draconian voting laws going on in red states, which is is hindering millions their right to vote.

    • Ya thank?🤔

    • @bill worden bullseye 🎯

    • @Junior Johnson same people that gave us the Russian hoax.

  10. Happy hunting Mr Katyal! Bring us home the head that has >begged< to be piked on the Capitol steps. In this case, I personally prefer the English Common Law remedy for treason.

  11. That was just fine he said (I) would like to fine

  12. Hasn’t enough money been spent on this guy. I’m ashamed of the way the government is acting. As Americans we are the laughing stock of the world because of these fools. Jumping Jehoshaphat people. Our country is being torn apart from the inside out. The government doesn’t care about us. They don’t work for us. Please believe we are doomed if we let these fools in Washington continue in the wreak less fashion. We must call for change.

  13. Where are Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani hiding these days? What happened to Trump’s _”Release the Kraken”_ legal team?

  14. “Delusion of grandeur Donald.” I love that one. 🤣

    Ari: …..Election interference is still considered illegal. Me: REALLY? Could have fooled me with all the Crap Trump has gotten away with. I’m afraid the ONLY repercussions Trump will face is being told he can Never hold public office again! That is NOT being held accountable!! Prison time is the correct answer
