Trump Dragged After Tweeting 'We WIN Pennsylvania' in Bizarre Tweet About Georgia's Election

Every state in the union has certified its election results and cast electoral ballots reinforcing President-elect Joe Biden's victory over outgoing President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

All of Trump's lawsuits attempting to overturn the election have failed, as has his pressure on state legislatures to appoint their own Trump-loyal electors.

Nevertheless, Trump continues to peddle the delusion that widespread voter fraud coordinated by Democrats tipped the election to Biden, despite the assessments of his own Justice Department and his own election security officials.

Such was the case when Trump once again took aim at local leaders in Georgia, which went blue this year for the first time since 1992. Georgia has counted the votes no fewer than three times and completed a signature audit of 10 percent of the votes in Cobb County, one of the districts Trump falsely claims was stolen.

After that audit showed that 99.99 percent of signatures were valid, Trump still took to Twitter to bash Georgia's Republican governor and further amplify lies about his performance in the key swing state of Pennsylvania.

Trump demanded a signature audit in Fulton County, Georgia before taking aim at Pennsylvania, where he cited false claims from Pennsylvania state lawmakers that over 205 thousand more votes were cast than there were voters.

These lawmakers said in a press release:

"A comparison of official county election results to the total number of voters who voted on Nov. 3, 2020, as recorded by the Department of State shows that 6,962,607 total ballots were reported as being cast, while DoS/SURE system records indicate that only 6,760,230 total voters actually voted."

As Penn Live points out, the number of voters who "actually voted" is taken from the Statewide Uniform Registry of Electors (SURE), which compiles the voting history of registered voters. But this database is currently incomplete, as many counties are still uploading them to the database after submitting them to the Secretary of State.

The Pennsylvania State Department's communications director, Wanda Murren, called their claims "obvious misinformation."

People are growing tired of Trump's "obvious misinformation."

The President's absurd claim that he won Pennsylvania was met with widespread mockery.

On January 6, Vice President Mike Pence will oversee a joint session of Congress where the final electoral votes will be read aloud for the House and Senate to acknowledge. While there are some fantasies that Pence can wield power he doesn't have or that enough members of Congress will object to overturn the results, the tally will certify the victory of President-elect Biden.

It's unclear what Trump's next move will be after that, but his most delusional supporters are urging him not to concede.
