The Wall Street Journal gave space on its Opinion page on Wednesday to allow Donald Trump to complain some more about the 2020 Presidential election. In a rambling “letter,” the Former Guy once again ducks responsibility and refuses to just accept that he lost nearly one year after Joe Biden defeated him by over 7 million votes. Never one to accept the basics of reality, like how math works, Trump has now decided that the founder of Facebook conspired with his former Attorney General to help “steal” votes in Pennsylvania in a deliberate attempt to help his opponent.
Trump was specifically focused on a WSJ editorial published on Monday that accurately said President Biden defeated Trump by more than 80,000 votes in Pennsylvania. “Well actually, the election was rigged, which you, unfortunately, still haven’t figured out,” Trump falsely claims. “Here are just a few examples of how determinative the voter fraud in Pennsylvania was.” The former guy then goes through a series of previously debunked claims about “fraud” in Pennsylvania’s election, which also included two claims about former Attorney General William Barr as well as Mark Zuckerberg, who’s been going through it lately. But Trump has a reason to hold grudges against both Barr and Zuck, so it’s no surprise he chose to scapegoat them instead of just saying “Hey, I lost”.

“Attorney General Bill Barr ordered U.S. Attorney Bill McSwain to stand down and not investigate election irregularities,” Trump complains. “Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook poured over $17 million to interfere in the Pennsylvania election, including $5.5 million on “ballot processing equipment” in Philadelphia and $552,000 for drop boxes where the voting pattern was not possible.” Or, it’s just that YOU LOST, LOSER.
In a new low for the @WSJ Opinion section, today they printed a litany of election falsehoods from former President Trump – without even a single mention of the fact that their own editorial side has thoroughly debunked these claims. https://t.co/JxA0BUce1k
