  1. Calling it now: this particular recount is going to show that Trump won Arizona, California, Pennsylvania, Miss Universe, the Superbowl and his senior year Class President election.

    1. @keir farnum TRUMP WON all world knows it , evidence is overwhelming . Here just couple fools deny obvious fact msnbc is a channel for intellectually challenged

    2. TRUMP WON all world knows it , evidence is overwhelming . Here just couple fools deny obvious fact , msnbc is a channel for intellectually challenged

    3. This is no joke. The election was rigged by those powers wanting Trump out, no matter what. Trump’s superb campaign just made it more difficult for them.

    4. @HUUUUUURRRR brah please we all know they rigged it , just silly at this point to keep defending the CIA and Gods knows who.

  2. Sounds like something out of a ”sh$thole” country handbook! These people are endangering our country. They’re gonna continue to count the ballots till they wear out!

    1. @Deepak D’Souza The person used it in quotes to mock Trump. They’re not saying anything bad about other countries.

    2. There is a 24/7 livesream of this audit . There are watchers from Every spectrum seated AT the tables to monitor every ballot and every activity. No pens allowed around ballots

    3. Important Public Announcement

      The Maricopa audit is confirming the rumors, that real ballots have a special watermark. No wonder the Democrats tried to stall.

    4. TRUMP WON all world knows it , evidence is overwhelming . Here few fools deny obvious fact , msnbc is a channel for intellectually challenged

  3. As an Arizonan, I’m ashamed. We’re nationally known at the moment for the Grand Canyon, Kyrsten Sinema, and this debacle. Only 1 of these 3 things isn’t completely awful.

    1. @G Bird yeah and Trump will lose for the 4th or 5th time now. just a waste of tax payer money to feed a bunch of cult members dilutions.

    2. TRUMP WON all world knows it , evidence is overwhelming . Here just couple fools deny obvious fact , msnbc is a channel for intellectually challenged

    3. I am from Florida. A state known for not having a clue how to run a proper election. Add to that it is a low IQ state and yeah… pretty shameful. Granted this past election we seemed to get it right. The few before that not so much.

    4. @Which god of thousands means nothing I thought the election in Florida was going to be a complete mess. But it wasn’t and I was actually impressed. Hopefully it’s not one of those “exceptions that proves the rule” kind on things lol

  4. I can’t imagine any other country in the world where this would be possible. Random people get ballots to count them. Impossible.

  5. If I lived in AZ I’d be very angry right now. This is ridiculous.
    I hope that voter fraud laws apply to recounts and the AZ attorney general investigates immediately.

    1. @Tachiro Akisu The People of Arizonia fought hard for this Audit , Democrats fought them every step of the way and still are , For the MEDIA to come on and say it’s a fraud Audit is a DISGRACE.. YOU PEOPLE NEED TO BE FIRED

    2. ​@Roger Jones That’s true and complete BS. The republican controlled state senate voted for it, right along party lines 16/14. It was authorized by a republican judge who was appointed by a Trump ally at the request of 16 republican senators. The audit itself is a sham. The Trump supporter being paid to perform the audit has no experience doing forensic audits and no clue. No one fought for this audit and the only people that wanted it are so sold on the lie that they are trying to will it into existence. You however are correct in that the people of AZ are paying for this mess. If they keep treating it like theater, then people of AZ will likely be paying for an audit of the audit.

    3. TRUMP WON all world knows it , evidence is overwhelming . Here just couple fools deny obvious fact , msnbc is a channel for intellectually challenged

    1. There is a 24/7 live stream of this audit. There are watchers from Every spectrum seated AT the tables to monitor every ballot and every activity

  6. Journalist wishing to do a TV report in a restaurant, Owner : Sure, but beforehand you and your crew will wait the tables for 6 hours !!

    1. @efs 1066 There is a 24/7 live stream of this FORENSIC AUDIT. There are watchers from Every spectrum seated at tables beside auditors to monitor every ballot and every activity

    2. @G Bird liar. YOU are a liar. you are lying. bald facd lie: “There are watchers from Every spectrum seated at tables”

    1. @David Castelli “Fairy tale”? What color is the sky in your world? Trump is a wholly-owned Russian asset, full-stop.

  7. Well, it’s obvious that they aren’t going to stop trying to make the” big lie” a reality, and the state governments are going to do whatever they think they can get away with. I just hope that someone is out there to tell them that they can’t commit voter fraud without facing the consequences.

    1. @LD Still going on, you have old information, the Democrats would not post the necessary bond to have it stopped

    2. @G Bird just like Trump was filmed for 5 years? lmfao dershowitz is your idol and he’s trying to bail out George nader who had 300-400 pictures of toddlers. Same with jd Hayworth and Jim kolbe from Arizona trying to bail out George nader. And Christian Bourge who wanted to extend FISA and American freedom act to spy on people. That’s why they wanted to label antifa as a terrorist group so they could silence us. Well good job, because antifa isn’t a terrorist group. This is all funded by Russia…. Well at least Trump is according to Paul Ryan and Mccarthy

    3. @G Bird Just because you keep repeating it doesn’t make it any less of a BIG LIE!!!!! Please……go away….we do not believe your BS no matter how times you repeat it!!!!

    4. Important Public Announcement

      The Maricopa audit is confirming the rumors, that real ballots have a special watermark. No wonder the Democrats tried to stall.

    5. @Public Announcement where were the real poll watchers/counters at RECOUNT #1 to look out for non-water marked ballots, or what you are calling REAL.

  8. Great job Jen, way to (try to) keep them honest. How in the world do they have access to these ballots. Unbelievable

    1. There is a 24/7 live stream of this audit . There are watchers seated AT the tables to monitor every ballot and every activity

    2. Important Public Announcement

      The Maricopa audit is confirming the rumors, that real ballots have a special watermark. No wonder the Democrats tried to stall.

    3. @Deborah Szczesniak nope. They are still going. They will pause on Sundays. The judge requested information on the procedures by Tuesday.

    4. ​@Deborah Szczesniak TRUMP WON all world knows it , evidence is overwhelming . Here just couple fools deny obvious fact , msnbc is a channel for intellectually challenged

    1. There is a 24/7 livesream of this audit. There are watchers from Every spectrum seated AT the tables to monitor every ballot and every activity

  9. As a taxpayer of Arizona, I’m paying for this audit! So he WILL be held accountable to the people of Arizona, if any fraud on their side is proven.

    1. @Carl Williams you don’t know what that judge was thinking because you don’t understand the law and what actually happened leading up to this. You don’t understand that the board of supervisors fought this tooth and nail since January even though they had no legal case to do so. You also don’t understand that the board was invited to participate in the audit and they refused. You also don’t understand that they refused to let the Senate audit the ballots and voting equipment in place at mctech where they were being held. You don’t understand this likely because you did not listen to the court hearings and instead listen to people like Maddow and msnbc.

    2. TRUMP WON all world knows it , evidence is overwhelming . Here few fools – an ignorant minority deny obvious fact , msnbc is a channel for intellectually challenged

    3. Strump lost by over 7 million votes. Time to stop counting. If they are really concerned about any fraud or screw ups they should be able to do that without wasting so much taxpayer dollars to count for freaking months. As it is now both sides have representatives there to keep an eye on everything. Trumps claims of all this massive dumps and dead people and pets voting is nonsense. Like the Kraken from Trumps legal team said no one reasonable would believe this stolen election story.

  10. I consider this to be another episode of insurrection , our prisons need to be filled with these people……

    1. @D Rae Democrats are stupid and brainwashed by MSNBC. They kept it s secret for months.

    2. Audit = insurrection????? Interesting interpretation. You must be one of those conspiracy theorist.

    1. Good luck getting the orange stain to pay for any thing. Just ask all those cities waiting to get paid for his campaign events

    2. There is a 24/7 livesream of this audit. There are watchers from Every spectrum seated AT the tables to monitor every ballot and every activity. People who feel like you are there.

    3. @G Bird OH yes and the camera is so close you can see exactly what is happening!! NOT!!!! All you see is a bunch of people sitting at tables…..you cannot tell what they are doing……..they could be playing bingo for we all know!!! As for the “from every spectrum” PROVE IT!!!

  11. 7:44 – No note pads to take notes?! That strikes me as a prefect example of *NOT* wanting the truth to get out.
    People forget, memories can be faulty, so people write things down, unless they don’t want them to be remembered.
    If these results don’t backup the initial counts I’m much more inclined to question the recount than the original.

    1. It’s right from the cult playbook.
      Tell the sheeple that the people who have their best interests at heart are evil monsters.

    2. There is a 24/7 livesream of this audit. There are watchers from Every spectrum seated AT the tables to monitor every ballot and every activity. No pens allowed around ballots.

    1. Yeah, but… what are either of us gonna *do* about it? Rend garments on the interwebs.
      While the Republicans put another dagger in Lady Liberty.

    2. This is a 24/7 livesream of this audit. There are watchers from Every spectrum seated AT the tables to monitor every ballot and every activity

  12. Wow! Blue pens, Qanon, and no observers? Sounds legit! This is what happens when you open the door to gangsters and kooks.

  13. Yikes! Arizona is going to just make it up as they go along – as long as they get the results they want? What? Surely they must have procedures that must be followed exactly, no?
