While his boss continues to insist that that 2020 presidential election was stolen from him and that there were unspecified “irregularities” in how absentee ballots were counted, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was in the nation of Georgia, where he saw fit to lecture Georgians on the importance of “free and fair elections.”
The irony is almost too rich.
Posting photos of his time in the nation of Georgia on Twitter, Pompeo made sure to stress that it’s of the utmost importance that the country become more democratic and transparent:
Great to meet with Prime Minister @GakhariaGiorgi and Foreign Minister @DZalkaliani to discuss the importance of holding free, fair, and transparent elections in Georgia. I reaffirmed unwavering U.S. support for Georgia’s sovereignty in the face of Russian occupation. pic.twitter.com/jg3IeNFA4w

Wow! Hard to tell if Pompeo is completely clueless or just craven. Probably a bit of both.
It didn’t take long before others on Twitter began reminding Secretary Pompeo of his own blatant hypocrisy:
Did they laugh at you? Free, fair and open elections? This coming from a GOP administration that has done everything in its power to disenfranchise, suppress, gerrymander the vote? Is there no shame?

“Do as I say, not as I do” is the correct translation

Such hypocrisy..lecturing others while he wants to disenfranchise neatly 80 million people to placate his boss’s ego

Ah yes, the importance of free, fair, and transparent elections.
Vacation time is a perfect time for REFLECTION.

Wow! The irony of talking about holding free, fair, and transparent elections coming from @SecPompeo is just too rich! Next he’ll tell us that he likes his antiques to be new.

Free and fair elections unless Trump loses, than it’s OK to undermine democratic electoral process with lies about integrity of election and fire head of CISA cause he confirmed elections were most secure ever. Sounds fair

Next time you go overseas, Mike, do us all a favor and don’t come back.
