For months Democrats have been accusing President Donald Trump of trying to undermine the 2020 election. This week, in a coordinate verbal attack, several prominent Dems accused the President of trying to undermine the United States Postal Service.
Congresswoman Maxine Waters got this conspiracy theory rolling when she said Trump sent, 'his henchmen over to run it (USPS) and I'm already getting complains from people who are saying the president of the United States is managing the delivery systems, slowing it down, interfering with people being able to get their mail.'
Former President Barack Obama followed up on the conspiracy while delivering a eulogy for Congressman John Lewis. 'There are those in power who are doing their darnedest to discourage people from voting by closing polling locations,' Obama said, adding Republicans, 'are attacking our voting rights with surgical precision, even undermining the Postal Service in the run up to an election that's going to be dependent on mail in ballots so people don't get sick.'
See what's going on here.
Democrats are using COVID19 to win the November presidential election.
Waters and Obama are spinning this to be about safety when in reality it's about fear among Democrat voters and lack of enthusiasm for their chosen candidate Joe Biden.
Even Biden is getting in on this. On Wednesday, Biden announced he would not travel to the Democratic National Convention to accept his party's own nomination. Normally, this is a historic moment in a campaign, especially for Biden who has run for President three others times. Instead the former Vice President will deliver his acceptance speech in Delaware. The Biden campaign is also blaming COVID19 as the reason they won't travel there.
See how coordinated this is.
Coordinated to maximize fear.
Democrats are encouraging people to be scared of this virus. Democrat voters are. A new poll shows Dem voters are fearful of catching COVID19 at a polling location. 64-percent of Democrat voters say voting in person poses either a large or moderate risk.
Democrats are fearful voters won't show up on November 3rd. That's why they are pushing for mail-in ballots.
There's no evidence COVID19 will spread at polling locations, particularly if social distance measures are in place and masks are worn (positions advocated by Democrat politicians). Yet fear persists.
Democrats see the fear and see the lack of enthusiasm for Biden and know they have to invent a conspiracy theory that Donald Trump will undermine the Postal Service so he can win.
Democrats need mail-in voting to win. They need it because of COVID and they need it because they nominated Biden.
So, they are trying to rig this election and they are turning to classic deflection. Say the opponent is trying to cheat all while they are.
After Waters and Obama posed this theory other Democrats joined in as well. On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, Stacy Abrams, Chuck Schumer and MI Senator Gary Peters all said POTUS was messing with the USPS.
We see exactly what you are doing to win this election. Ironically, the party is meddling the exact same way they accused Russia of meddling in 2016. Look how that turned out.
