Wall Street Journal Prints an Entire Letter Trump Wrote Continuing to Push Election Lies

Former President   Donald Trump   was given space in   The Wall Street Journal   Wednesday to continue pushing his baseless claims of a rigged election.

The   Journal   editorial board   was critical   of the Pennsylvania state Supreme Court over the 2020 election, but it had the temerity to state the fact that   Joe Biden   won Pennsylvania, so naturally, Trump was angry.

The former president sent them a letter to the editor to complain, and   they actually ran the letter   where he continues falsely insisting — at length — the election in Pennsylvania was stolen from him.


In your editorial “The Election for Pennsylvania’s High Court” (Oct. 25), you state the fact that a court wrongly said mail-in ballots could be counted after Election Day. “This didn’t matter,” you add, “because Mr. Biden won the state by 80,555, but the country is lucky the election wasn’t closer. If the election had hung on a few thousand Pennsylvanians, the next President might have been picked by the U.S. Supreme Court.” Well actually, the election was rigged, which you, unfortunately, still haven’t figured out.

Almost a full year after the 2020 election, Trump has continued to make false assertions and push conspiracies about it supposedly being stolen from him.

His letter to the   Journal   called for another audit in Pennsylvania and claimed, “80,555 ballots are nothing when there is this much corruption or voter irregularities.”

Pennsylvania was one of the states Trump tried to contest the results in, perhaps best exemplified by   Rudy Giuliani’s   wild   Four Seasons Total Landscaping press conference .

The Journal was criticized for giving Trump the platform to continue pushing falsehoods.

WSJ editorial page gives Trump platform to promote nonsense about the 2020 election results.
 

 

Jordan Fischer
@JordanOnRecord
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.
 

 
 

 

Jeremy Diamond
@JDiamond1How can the @WSJ justify publishing a letter to the editor from the former President in which he lists a string of faulty & misleading data points & claims: "Well actually, the election was rigged, which you, unfortunately, still haven’t figured out." (I'm not going to post link)
 

 
 



Amanda Carpenter
@amandacarpenterThe WSJ publishes a garbage oped from Trump spewing election lies but calls it a “Letter to the Editor” to avoid taking responsibility. Btw, WSJ LTEs are normally capped, I believe, at 200 words. Take responsibility WSJ!!!

Big black eye for WSJ, but hardly a surprise. Half the time while he was president this paper went along with Trumps lies.

He would from here if certain members weren't so fucking obsessed with his mere existence. Who here would have known about this little piece of wonderment of the irrelevant Mr. Trump?

It is in the Wall St Journal today. 

The Wall St Journal is considered one of America's big 4 newspapers. 

You might wish Trump were irrelevant but that is not reality.

I was talking here at NT John and I think you knew that already. Unless we get a direct feed from the WSJ, other than you, I don't think anyone here would have seen it unless one of their faves like Yahoo picked it up.

You dont think we should talk about the days news? 

If y'all would denounce Trump once and for all maybe he would go away.  You play footsie with him so he thinks he is still the man.  Soon it will be campaign time and he will steamroll all Republican opposition and you will be stuck supporting him again.

This kind of irrelevant crap is not a bit newsworthy.

I have denounced him several times on these pages

His popularity is constantly waning...only the media keeps this pot boiling,

with help from y'all.

No such thing when the current president is an actual loser, not just someone obsessed with because of mean tweets. .

No one cares about "mean tweets" except evidently you. 

Or is "mean tweets" a euphemism for lying, cheating, stealing, and being a moron, bigot, and traitor?

TDS, Trump Delusional Syndrome. Trump is truly delusional since he insists that he won the election.

Trump has been claiming that the 2020 election was rigged for at least a year before election day.   If he knew is was going to be rigged that far in advance and could not stop it, much less even produce a single piece of evidence of rigging, how incompetent is the guy?   

Trump is just broadcasting to the world that not only is he the worst sore-loser in US presidential history (nobody else is even close) but he is also extremely incompetent.

But still, some people think Trump was the greatest PotUS, does no lie, and they "love" him.
