Trump Makes Baseless Claim About Children Stealing Vote-By-Mail Ballots

The president has been railing against voting by mail, often spreading misinformation, as states seek to expand its use amid the coronavirus pandemic.

By Sarah Ruiz-Grossman

President Donald Trump again railed against states expanding vote-by-mail on Thursday, this time making absurd claims that children “raid” mailboxes and “grab the ballots.”

Speaking at the White House signing of a new executive order on social media, the president once again went off on mail-in ballots, repeatedly claiming the process is rife with “fraud and abuse” — even though there is no evidence of that.

“When they send out, like in California, millions and millions of ballots to anybody in California that’s breathing. Anybody that’s breathing gets a ballot,” Trump falsely claimed.

An executive order signed by Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom earlier this month requires the state to mail a ballot to every registered voter in California before the Nov. 3 election. As in other states seeking to expand mail-in voting for the 2020 election, the move came amid public health concerns over in-person voting further spreading the coronavirus.

4. Maybe HIS CHILDREN......

Sounds more like something Jared and his Trailer Trash Barbie wife would do..........

Actually, it is Trump covertly telling his Trumphumpers what to do if there is vote by mail in their region.........

"send your kids out to loot mailboxes of the ballots" not the parent Trumphumpers, of course, but the kids because they are minors and can't be charged if caught..............

5. Gosh this brings me back to my childhood in 5th grade when my friends and I would get together

and try to change the electoral landscape by stealing mail ballots from the local mailboxes.
Spanky and Alfalfa would lead us around block by block and we would put them in a wagon guarded by our dog Spot.
Fun times.
Kids will be kids, right?

9. Oh, you guys were just a bunch of Little Rascals-

I like this line:

“When they send out, like in California, millions and millions of ballots to anybody in California that’s breathing. Anybody that’s breathing gets a ballot,”

DUH- I would hope so----

11. Yeah. That happens. Roving gangs of politicized 5 year olds

raiding mailboxes and stealing ballots. Until naptime.

Then it's milk and cookies.

After, using crayons instead of a sharpie, the children mark the ballots to make Dora the Explorer the winner.

14. I KNEW IT! I knew it all along.

The children in my neighborhood are shorter than the average child. None of them - not one - was able to reach into my mailbox and steal the ballot I was returning.

I have confirmed, beyond any speculation, that my mail-in ballot has, in fact, reached the Secretary of State's office.

It must be true...I read it on the internet.
