Maryland’s Republican Gov. Larry Hogan and GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger were among the first batch of Republicans to call out President Donald Trump for his rambling appearance at the White House Thursday where he claimed a massive vote fraud conspiracy while offering no evidence.
‘There is no defense for the President’s comments tonight undermining our Democratic process,’ Hogan tweeted. ‘America is counting the votes, and we must respect the results as we always have before. No election or person is more important than our Democracy.’
‘We want every vote counted, yes every legal vote (of course). But, if you have legit concerns about fraud present EVIDENCE and take it to court. STOP Spreading debunked misinformation…,’ Kinzinger tweeted. ‘This is getting insane.’
Trump appeared for 17 minutes in front of the press, reading notes out of a binder, and complained about ‘suppression’ polls, mail-in ballots, Democratic cities including Detroit and Philadelphia. He said he was the victim of a ‘big media, big money and big tech’ conspiracy, Daily Mail reported.
