Despite the substantial amount of voting irregularities in the election, Joe Biden has already picked his chief of staff for a presidency he has not won yet, as recounts have been ordered in many battleground states.
Biden’s pick for White House Chief of Staff, Ronald Klain, is raising eyebrows over a post on Twitter from 2014 stating that elections are “rigged.” The Democratic operative has worked as a senior adviser to the Biden-Harris campaign, and also served as the former vice president’s chief of staff during the Obama administration from 2009 to 2011.
Left-wing news outlet Vox published an article in 2014 based on a Rasmussen poll, with the headline, “68% of Americans think elections are rigged.” The article was shared on Twitter, and Klain responded.
“@voxdotcom That’s because they are,” Klain replied. This post was still up on Twitter as of Thursday morning.
As the Biden campaign and Democrats have been insisting that our elections are secure, despite evidence to the contrary, this tweet has many on the right claiming hypocrisy.
Since the day President Trump was elected, Democrats have been claiming that the 2016 election was rigged somehow. They have spent the last four years disputing the results of the election, calling Trump an illegitimate president, and pulling out all the stops to obstruct his presidency.
After four years of insanity, the Democrats now insist that our elections are completely safe and secure. Many on the right believe that the only possible reason for this sudden switch is that Democrats believe the only legitimate outcome of an election is a Democrat victory.
This is easily provable. According to the Wall Street Journal, “Every time [Democrats] lost since 1968, they’ve called it illegitimate—except for the 49-state landslides.”
What many honest people in the political arena have pointed out is that President Trump and his supporters have the right to question the results of an election with multiple instances of shady activity at polling places, instances of software “glitches” that switched thousands of votes from Republicans to Democrats, and random ballot dumps for Biden in the middle of the night.
If Democrats truly believed in election integrity, they would support these efforts to ensure that voter fraud did not take place.
