(CNN)The White House included ending the coronavirus pandemic on a list of the Trump administration's science and technology accomplishments, despite nearly half a million Americans tested positive for Covid-19 in just the last week....

"Highlights include: ENDING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC," the news release sent to reporters read. "From the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Administration has taken decisive actions to engage scientists and health professionals in academia, industry, and government to understand, treat, and defeat the disease."

The news release comes as the country reports the largest number of daily cases seen to date. The seven-day average of daily new cases reached an all-time high of 68,767 on Sunday, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. The previous record of 67,293 was set July 22...

Trump's Truthiness Inherited by Eldest Spawn

Donald Trump Jr. called for ‘total war’ — and people can’t look away from the meltdown.
President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr. is having a conniption fit over the results of the election, claiming that because states are counting votes that they are somehow committing voter fraud.

His anger has grown so great that he called for a “total war.” Ironically, it’s something that many cities prepared for after the election results. When Twitter decided to put a disclaimer over the tweet, it sent Don Jr. further into a tizzy.
Twitter is censoring and flagging this of course why would we not want to find out if these things exist? If they don’t then we will find nothing and people could maybe regain some faith in the process which doesn’t exist now.

Why would they be against finding potential fraud?

Trump's Pants on Fire claim about votes exceeding voters in swing states
Jon Greenberg | November 23, 2020

If Your Time is short
In Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, the number of registered voters greatly exceeds the number of votes cast.
States use voter databases to prevent any voter from voting twice.
Trump’s lawyers have lost before multiple judges due to the lack of any evidence of double-voting.

In a late-night tweet, President Donald Trump highlighted an election statistic that he thought ought to raise eyebrows.

"In certain swing states, there were more votes than people who voted, and in big numbers," Trump tweeted at 11:37 p.m. ET Nov. 22. "Does that not really matter?"

There is no reading of this claim that makes it accurate.

...We rate this claim Pants on Fire!


Also Pants on Fire:

Donald Trump stated on November 17, 2020 a fundraising email:
Says Georgia’s secretary of state won’t let the people recounting ballots check the signatures for fraud.

Rudy Giuliani stated on November 11, 2020 a tweet:
Says there were “600,000 plus unlawful votes in Philly and Pitt.”

One of the troubled people who died because Trump lies...

Did Woman Who Died at Capitol Riot Carry a ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ Flag?
Macabre online speculation surrounded the death of Georgia resident Rosanne Boyland during the Jan. 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol riots.
Dan MacGuill | 12 January 2021

...On Facebook, (Rosanne) Boyland’s friend Sarah Lewis paid an emotional tribute to a woman she described as her best friend for more than three decades:

“She had some demons and she had some problems, but she found a purpose in taking care of her little nieces. And she’s been good to them and she was real good to my children, and she was real good to me when I needed her. … I just want to remind everybody she is a human being. She’s not a ‘psycho Trump supporter,’ she’s not a drug addict, she’s a human being. And she was closer to me than a sister.”

Lewis also issued a warning for others whose loved ones have become embroiled in online conspiracy theories, in the midst of the 2020 presidential election, Trump’s defeat, and the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, saying:

“I hope this is a wake-up call to everybody. Check on your friends. We’ve all watched her decline and go on these rabbit trails. … This all really fucked with her head —the QAnon conspiracies, the elections, the unrest, the virus … ”
