“Well if they do, they [the Electoral College] made a mistake, because this election was a fraud,” Trump began before Mason cut across him and was swiftly reprimanded by the enraged president.

“Don’t talk to me that way,” Trump raged when Mason interrupted his rant about the Electoral College vote. ″You’re just a lightweight.”

“[I] realized once again that the Fake News Media coordinates so that the real message of such a conference never gets out. Primary point made was that the 2020 Election was RIGGED, and that I WON!” the president fired back.
