President Trump has been vocal about concerns that mail-in voting can be exploited for fraud. The media and Democrats, however, have been quick to criticize or dismiss his concerns.
At one point, Twitter even went as far as to censor a post by the president for even suggesting it.
With this herculean effort to suppress Trump’s concerns over fraud, perhaps the media is also working to counter wild comments from his rival, Joe Biden?
It doesn’t appear that way. In fact, nobody seems to be criticizing Biden for his recent statement:
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told supporters Wednesday night his campaign assembled a team of 600 lawyers to fight against efforts he expects from President Donald Trump to limit voter participation in the upcoming election.
The former vice president made the remark when asked at a fundraiser what he planned to do to address the “very real concern” that the president would try to suppress the vote.
Joe Biden claimed, during a fundraiser, that he has a team of 600 lawyers ready to fight Donald Trump, if he tries to limit voter participation on Election Day. The former vice president directly accused Trump of trying to “suppress” the vote—despite a lack of evidence.
In recent months, we’ve seen the vulnerability of mail-in voting. Numerous reports have come out that mail workers are dumping hundreds of ballots. Counties across the country are rejecting hundreds of thousands of ballots. In one case, a mail truck full of mail-in ballots was set ablaze.
Yet the media seems to reject Trump’s worries that this system can be exploited by fraud. They are quick to ignore these many stories that suggest mail-in voting is not secure.
At the same time, the media is silent on Joe Biden’s wild claims that Trump will try to suppress voters. Biden cites no evidence that Trump nor his team has ever tried to stop Americans from voting. Yet he announced that he has hired 600 lawyers, assuming Trump would do just that on Election Day.
The media appears willing to fan the flames of Biden’s conspiracy theory, rather than question it. Twitter doesn’t appear too eager to censor or red flag any of Biden’s tweets, despite the unfoundedness of his accusations.
- Joe Biden announced he has a team of 600 lawyers to confront Trump’s attempts at voter suppression.
- The Democrat candidate accused Trump of voter suppression, citing no evidence.
- It appears the media is unwilling to confront Biden over this claim, despite attacking Trump over concerns for mail-in voting.
