As President Trump's prospects of managing to overturn the results of a free and fair election via a flurry of legal challenges has dimmed, he has struggled to keep the illusion going. Much of his legal challenge has relied on circumstantial and oftentimes entirely fabricated claims. It is therefore unsurprising that he would continue to disseminate circumstantial and debunked theories on his Twitter.

On Wednesday, President Trump posited that the fact that betting markets had him ahead somehow impugns the actual result.

President-Elect Biden won five out of seven swing states, and his popular vote margin over President Trump is now over seven-million votes.What betting markets may or may not have thought would be the outcome of the race has no bearing on the actual result.

Many on Twitter pounced on the outgoing President.

Others pointed out that there might be a reason that the betting markets were betting on Trump at 10PM on Election Day.

Unfortunately for Donald Trump, bookies don't vote. People do.
