Joe Biden has already picked his chief of staff, despite not officially winning the election yet due to allegations of voter irregularity and recounts being ordered in multiple battleground states.
Biden’s White House Chief of Staff pick, Ronald Klain, is raising eyebrows over a post on Twitter from 2014 stating that elections are “rigged.”
The Democratic operative has been working as a senior adviser to the Biden-Harris campaign, and also served as the former vice president’s chief of staff during the Obama administration from 2009 to 2011.
In 2014, left-wing news outlet Vox published an article based on a Rasmussen poll with the headline, “68% of Americans think elections are rigged.” The article was shared on Twitter, and Klain responded.
“@voxdotcom That’s because they are,” Klain replied. The chief of staff’s response was still up on Twitter as of Thursday morning.
As the Biden campaign and other Democrats have been insisting, despite evidence to the contrary, that our elections are secure, this tweet has many on the right claiming hypocrisy.
Democrats have been insisting, since the day President Trump was elected, that the 2016 election was rigged somehow, with many of them blaming Russia.
They spent the last four years disputing the results of the election, calling President Trump an illegitimate president, and pulling out all the stops to hinder his presidency.
Now, all of a sudden, Democrats insist that our elections are completely safe and secure. The only possible reason for this sudden switch is that they believe the only legitimate outcome of an election is a Democrat victory.
According to the Wall Street Journal, “Every time [Democrats] lost since 1968, they’ve called it illegitimate—except for the 49-state landslides.”
The reality is, President Trump and his supporters have the right to question the results of an election with multiple instances of shady activity at polling places, instances of software “glitches” that switched thousands of votes from Republicans to Democrats, and random ballot dumps for Biden in the middle of the night. If Democrats truly believed in election integrity, they would support these efforts to ensure that voter fraud did not take place.
