Although Trump’s video recycled a number of already debunked claims suggesting a global conspiracy was behind his loss to Joe Biden, he failed to offer any actual evidence supporting his unfounded allegations.
You can see for yourself here.
Although Trump’s tirade probably failed to help his cause, he did succeed in one aspect: attracting lots of Twitter condemnation.
Mr. President, with all due respect, I listened intently to all 45 minutes and did not hear or see any physical evidence of voter fraud. If you would provide the evidence, this would be over.

In this endless speech of lies and nonsense, Trump holds up a graphic that I described as an “unusually easy” thing to debunk when I did so two weeks ago. https://t.co/rxeJAIrChZ

The attorney general said yesterday the Justice Department and Department of Homeland Security looked into this claim about voting machines changing ballots and saw nothing to substantiate it, yet Trump repeats it today with the presidential seal in front of him. https://t.co/V4V2ta2kPQ

Your own Attorney General says you’re full of crap https://t.co/UGOoKoB5gI

Correction, all legal ballots have been counted, certified bud and counted in close races. It proved the system is solid and works as intended. Trump is repeating falsehoods his own federal judges he appointed are shooting down. Trump is done, he’s just trying to push blame.

Sir, remember the part about how you lost the election a month ago and people across our glorious land can’t decide whether to laugh at you or forget who you are because you’ve been whining like an ass-whupt gimbus in your bunker for weeks?

Someone give this dude a participation trophy so he’ll shut up.

Trump’s refusal to accept the election result is a disgraceful assault on our democracy. He is peddling baseless claims of fraud—claims that judge after judge has laughed out of court. Trump needs to accept reality & stop dangerously dividing our nation & sabotaging our democracy

Bravo TV’s Andy Cohen used the occasion to ask the president for a favor: “Please get help.”
Please get help.

Another man hoped to turn Trump’s rant into a teachable moment for our nation’s youth.
Kids, this is what a liar & a sore loser does. Sadly some grownups don’t seem to know the difference. Thankfully you’ll soon have a real president to look up to, and sometimes disagree with, but one who’ll bring honor and integrity back to the highest office in our land. #ByeDon

But one individual did give credit where credit was due to Trump, noting he’s hitting record numbers where falsehoods are concerned.
Saddam Hussein’s propaganda minister Baghdad Bob aka Comical Ali was the world’s most notorious liar. He never passed 5,000 lies
