If perhaps you thought you’d heard the worst of the absurd conspiracy theories regarding how the 2020 election was “stolen” from President Donald Trump, longtime GOP operative Roger Stone has come forward with a tall tale that could easily win an award for the most ridiculous post-election rant.
According to Newsweek, Stone wants us to believe that North Korea interfered with the the presidential race, and they did so with boats filled with fake ballots:
“With the Electoral College expected to meet on December 14, Trump has intensified his claims of widespread election fraud. Democrat President-elect Joe Biden was widely projected to be the winner of the election despite Trump’s protestations. During an interview on The Alex Jones Show, Stone said he had received further proof of election fraud.
“‘I just learned of absolute incontrovertible evidence of North Korean boats delivering ballots through a harbor in Maine, the state of Maine,’ Stone said. ‘If this checks out, if law enforcement looked into that and it turned out to be true, it would be proof of foreign involvement in the election.'”
In that same interview with Alex Jones, Stone also claimed that he’d been praying for Trump to be “strengthened” in his battle against “an epically corrupt deep state that has no problem in what appears to be the cyber-manipulation of the votes of the American people.”
Funny how Stone and his ilk continue to deny that Russia played in any role in Trump’s 2016 victory (even though every U.S. intelligence agency has confirmed that the Kremlin did indeed conspire to elect Trump), and yet now they want to blame every foreign nation they can think of to assert that the incumbent president was cheated out of a second term.
On Wednesday, Trump posted a rambling, 46-minute long video on both Twitter and Facebook in which he whined about how he’d been cheated out of a second term, remarking:
“If we are right about the fraud. Joe Biden can’t be president. We’re talking about hundreds of thousands of votes.
“What a disaster this election was. A total catastrophe, but we’re going to show it, and hopefully the courts—in particular, the Supreme Court of the United States—will see it and respectfully, hopefully, they will do what’s right for our country.”
The courts have repeatedly rejected lawsuits filed by the Trump campaign. The Electoral College is scheduled to meet on December 14 and confirm that Joe Biden is indeed the next president of the United States.
