2020election

Philip Bump has the goods: it is nearly impossible for the fraud claimed by Trumpists to have occurred in 2020. No evidence has emerged to support an already conspiracy-ridden and ignorance-addled group of crypto-fascists bent on creating a dictatorship for a game-show demagogue. Yet they are even grifting money from...
