It’s easy to make fun of Donald Trump’s brain vomit unleashed on CNN Wednesday. But one of his Big Fibs is seriously threatening the 2024 election.
Trump said: “If you look at True the Vote, they found millions of votes on camera, on government cameras, where they were stuffing ballot boxes. … Look at what happened in Atlanta, millions of votes, and all you have to do is take a look at government cameras. You will see them, people going to 28 different voting booths to vote, to put in seven ballots apiece. I mean, and they’re all on camera.”
The Palast Investigative team took on this very claim in our film Vigilante: Georgia’s Vote Suppression Hitman.
Trump’s claim of one guy stuffing ballots into “28 voting booths” (he meant, absentee ballot dropboxes) comes, as he says, from the Texas group of self-proclaimed vote fraud vigilantes True the Vote, producers of the film 2000 Mules, premiered by Trump at Mar-a-Lago.
