Typically, U.S. Presidents do not speak during Thanksgiving, unless there is a situation of national emergency. However, on this unusual of Thanksgiving Days, President Donald J. Trump spoke from the White House, promising he would visit Georgia to campaign for U.S. Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue in their fights to retain their seats in Congress.

“Speaking of Georgia, I’ll be going there,” the President said after his Thanksgiving video teleconference call with US service members, as he baselessly railed against the integrity of the state’s election results.

The White House confirmed the President will be in Georgia on Saturday, December 5th, to hold a rally one day before the Republican incumbents square off against their Democratic rivals, Jon Ossoff and The Reverend Raphael Warnock in separate televised debates. Trump admitted the pandemic would not allow a rally to he held inside a stadium.

Trump says he told Loeffler and Perdue that the electoral system in Georgia is deeply flawed, a claim he has repeated without any evidence. The President also said the State of Georgia used the coronavirus as a buoy in order to defraud the people of their desired result, a conspiracy theory that is fallacious and seditious in nature.

“It’s going to be a very hard thing to concede because we know there was massive fraud,” Trump said without evidence. “As to whether or not we can get this apparatus moving quickly — because time isn’t on our side, everything else is on our side, facts are on our side, this was a massive fraud.”

Trump also claimed Democrat Stacey Abrams has 850,000 ballots accumulated (or harvested). However, Abrams registered 800,000 new voters in two years.

“The Secretary of State is an enemy of the People,” Trump exclaimed. “The whole world is watching and the whole world is laughing at our electoral process.”

Trump’s comments came after defense attorney Sidney Powell filed a lawsuit in Atlanta Wednesday night alleging the Georgia vote was rigged in favor of Democrat Joe Biden.

The 104-page complaint petitioned the court to issue a ruling “prohibiting the Governor and Secretary of State from transmitting the currently certified results to the Electoral College based on the overwhelming evidence of election tampering.”

“The fraud was executed by many means, but the most fundamentally troubling, insidious, and egregious is the systemic adaptation of old-fashioned ‘ballot-stuffing,'” Powell’s suit proclaimed. “It has now been amplified and rendered virtually invisible by computer software created and run by domestic and foreign actors for that very purpose. Mathematical and statistical anomalies rising to the level of impossibilities, as shown by affidavits of multiple witnesses, documentation, and expert testimony evince this scheme across the state of Georgia.

“This scheme and artifice to defraud affected tens of thousands of votes in Georgia alone and ‘rigged’ the election in Georgia for Joe Biden,” the suit added.

Powell’s lawsuit claimed a minimum of 96,600 absentee ballots were requested and counted but were never recorded as being returned to county election boards by the voter. Plus, the suit claimed Kemp and Raffensperger “rushed through the purchase of Dominion voting machines and software in 2019 for the 2020 Presidential Election” without due diligence and disregarded safety concerns.

Powell seeks the following solutions: an injunction blocking the state’s certified results showing Biden as winning by 12,000 votes from being sent to the Electoral College, an audit where signatures are matched, the immediate seizure of election machines, and the securing of video surveillance tapes from vote-counting settings.

As for President Trump, he continued marching to the beat of his drum.

“Certainly I will, and you know that,” Trump said when asked by a reporter about leaving the White House if Biden is declared the winner on December 14. “I will and, you know that.”
