Real Purpose Of Pro-Trump AZ Ballot Circus Seen In Plans To Take It On The Road | Rachel Maddow

 

Rachel Maddow points out that as the Republican ballot-examining theater in Arizona drags on, the real purpose is not to reach a conclusion at the end to answer a specific question, but rather, the carnival of counting and its spread to other states to maximize the deleterious effects on faith in democratic elections is the actual goal.

    1. No Michigan voted for President Joe Biden are Commander in Chief!!!! why do I know this because I am from Michigan we are a blue state you lost fair and square Trump get over it you big boss baby with your thumb in your mouth going boohoo stop putting people through more crap than you already have done in a already crisis situation due to you I’m sure of… If I were you I would be more concerned about what lies ahead for my future as far as my taxes all the fraudulent things that you have done is completely obvious that your own wife can’t stand being around you she now realizes what kind of monster she’s married to I hope for her sake

    2. Doesn’t really matter. They have evidence of other crimes. He should have been behind bars already.

    1. @Open borders Dementia Joe I suggest, for you own sake, that you refrain from making these insane “comments”. And that you adress the issue of regaining a sense of self-dignity. No one, former, past or future American president, deserves the kind of self-abasement that you demonstrate. Get help!

    2. @Open borders Dementia Joe No one has to explain anything to a proven liar, that just helps the liar lie even more.

    3. @Open borders Dementia Joe I want you to know that AG Bill Barr lied about the investigation that was done by Mueller a judge said that the Mueller report that the AG Bill Barr lied to the judge now they have un redacte the report because Satan trump is not exonerated that he has lied to Mueller so go read the report

    4. @Open borders Dementia Joe Are you upset seeing a real leader who won in a landslide, while your loser only has his BIG LIE to feel relevant…and you believe.

    1. @Mark Ray was that the same drunk witness that Rudy brought to court? I’m sure Dan Patrick created a lot of false witnesses with his election fraud bounty offer… LMFAO

    2. @Mark Ray As much as you do not believe the other side of the coin with respect to fellow countrymen … we do not believe you either. And the animus is only growing for anything tRump related.
      Which it is only the good graces of people not taking you seriously that you are allowed to continue your existence.
      Time is not on your side … and your ideological group is not monolithic , still being subject to people & ideas evolving.
      It’s full well expected eventually the core of tRumpism is going to rage quit the ideological war and grab their guns.
      Thereby losing even more of your numbers because the reality of that will still register in their minds.

    3. @David Allen True, but in this case there is some relationship, aside from which, both audits and recounts should involve non-partisan oversight. That happens in recounts whereas this “audit” demonstrates none of this, and in addition, shows no plan that includes the goal, the process and evidence of validity. In other words it is a joke. Perhaps it is simply an offering of more time and reason to extract more funds to be used by whichever Republicans can get the hands on it.

    4. @Robert Strong You are probably correct and certainly your reply is quite appropriate, because poor Kevin is only capable of ridiculous generalizations and no facts.

    5. @Kevin Bragg Oh Kevin, you seem to have an issue. Nobody cares how many languages you speak. Certainly, if all you do is write in ridiculous generalizations in each of those languages, you are just quadrupling your lack of substance in your comments.

  1. It is so appropriate that this so-called audit is taking place right next to a literal carnival.

    1. A U.S. epidemic of crazy limited to a certain segment of the population. Many if that same segment who believed the covid pandemic was a hoax, who refuse to wear masks, who don’t want to get vaccinated. Crazies who believe and follow the lies of a wann-be fascist dictator and think they are patriotic and saving democracy. When they are doing the direct opposite.

    2. @T W I think the Carnie would run even they think its more of a freak show then they can put on.

  2. Guess I’d better plan to object to this fraud circus touching my ballot in Georgia. I don’t trust any of them to not change something to throw mine out.

  3. I wouldn’t be surprised if those ballot counters just bully the school board and doesn’t let the high school in for graduation, saying “No, we’re not done yet.” And then there’s no attempt to kick the cyber ninjas and them out.

    1. Good point. I wouldn’t be surprised either now that you bring that up. I hope there be a big backlash, not that anything would come from it

    2. Since they had a set duration on the rental agreement, they only have a handful of options

      1) attempt to extend their rental agreement *without* interruption of use (graduation gets moved to a new venue)
      If an agreement is reached then that’s fine, so long as they find a new and potentially better venue for the graduation

      2) attempt to extend their rental agreement w/ interruption of use (they pack up everything into a storage room with security and camera’s so the graduations can happen, then get back to their “work”

      3) they breach their agreement, get MAGA to form a barrier and cry about libs being unfair

      4) they breach their agreement and get removed by law enforcement and cry about libs being unfair ~and~ the deep state antifa forces posing as cops

    3. @Rampage7 The last two are hilarious because that IS Republican go-to response for facing ANY kind of consequences. But I hadn’t considered option number 1. That’s most likely what they’ll end up doing or trying to do. bummer.

  4. This is what happens when you say “No” to a 75 year old who has never been told “No” his entire life.

    1. @Jew Dy Nope, you know that isn’t the end of the story. The end of the story is that Biden was creditably accused of sexual assault but never-the-less still became president. This isn’t about Trump, he’s no longer president. This is about Biden, who is.

    2. @Carol Cisko Nope, 74. Sadly, as to timing, I was born the same day and unlike the former President I know my age.

    3. @O S a vote for anyone but Biden was a vote for fascism. You can feel free to sit atop your high horse of fascism if you like, but everyone with a brain is disgusted by you.

    4. @O S I scanned through your comment history expecting to see your moral outrage over the election of Turnip despite his many, many credible accusations of assault and was SHOCKED to see that this mortal outrage energy you are performing in this thread was no where to be found…shocking!

    5. So True!!!!!!!…this is probably the 1st time in His Life he got hit with walking papers and doesn’t know to humble himself and take the L…no instead he’s Still running around chasing these phantom ballots that have Already been recounting 4 or 5 x’s, and the outcomes been the Same every time…

  5. As someone who grew up in the US in the 50’s and 60’s when everyone I knew was pretty smart, how did my country become so incredibly stupid and clearly insane? What do we do about this? It can’t be allowed to continue.

    1. Hi !… I’m Joe Biden…

      …and, like they say on TV, I wanna
      see that YOU get ALL the BENEFITS
      that YOU DESERVE…..….

      Call that “1-800” number
      on your screen for medicare….….

      If you are
      “coming across the border”…
      call “1-666-DNC-VOTE”………

    2. Hi !… I’m Joe Biden…

      Thank you for calling the
      “White House Crisis Hotline”…

      For “spanish” press “one”…..
      For “spanish” press “two”………..
      For “ebonics” press “three”…….

    3. Hi !… I’m Joe Biden…….

      Did you know dog hair
      doesn’t smell
      NEARLY as good,
      as little girls’ hair ?….. ….

    1. Half a brain, dear. And what will happen to those ballets that were lawfully cast? I’m a bit worried about that.

    1. Well, they’ve already been caught at it twice. I’m sure there’s already been countless alterations to the ballots.

    2. I’m sure you can count on all that.The Democrats will have the same opportunity to recount after the fake experts are finished.Take it to the same judge that allowed this BS.

  6. We need to start Re-Calling these State Representatives and kicking them out of office. Covid we need help

  7. It’s pathetic that our entire country has jumped through so many hoops for one malignant narcissist.

    1. @Melissa Honeybee I hope Trump and the voter suppression is not enough for them to win. I don’t feel like living in Nazi Germany anytime soon.

    2. There isn’t only one malignant narcissist. The GOP is full of them. Narcissism is an epidemic in this country and that’s not hyperbole.

    3. @Alex T the epidemic is this pos fraudulent biden administration.
      It is like a disease that’s sickening this country

  8. The fraud is easy to find, they are just looking in the wrong place. The fraud lives in Mar-a-lago in Florida and spews out a constants stream of lies and corruption.

    1. @Brett Barnes Troll,troll, troll no matter how many times you post it will not make it true.

  9. If there were a treasure trove of ballots to be discovered, even Geraldo Rivera could have found it by now.

    1. they are going to try to say that the Ballots that exist are fake and or corrupted,… Lol’s

  10. And when they find nothing of note like every other allegation of fraud they’ll want to audit the auditors of the audit. These people are sad and pathetic

    1. I was thinking the same thing when i read your comment. Actually, it may be fun to watch until at some point it gets boring

  11. This needs to be stopped immediately!! I don’t understand why they were allowed to access these ballots especially when they have no idea what they are doing!! Not to mention what they are doing is wrong on so many levels and can’t be trusted!!

    1. Let them count as much as they want they might find more Democrats votes as before plop !!

    2. @K. C The Arizona Republican Senate already audited the ballots twice, and found NOTHING.

    3. You’re right. What if they say he won at the end of the counting but won’t produce the results?

    4. What these people are doing is the beginning of a very slippery slope.
      If they can get away with doing this now legitimately, next time, they will inch a little more towards doing what they shouldn’t do, while getting their hands on the people’s ballots.

  12. “The only thing worse than a liar is a liar that’s also a hypocrite.”
    Tennessee Williams

  13. “Truth can walk naked. But a lie needs to be dressed and hide itself” Kahil Gibran.

    The only ones they are fooling are their ignorant base who will believe anything they are told. No matter how outrageous.

  14. The best thing we can do is vote like your life depends on it. Get your non-engaged friends and family members engaged. Make whatever sacrifices you need to make and show up on election day and bring your friends. We have the numbers, we just need to turnout.
