    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump threatened Wednesday to hold up coronavirus relief money for Michigan after he said — erroneously — that the state had sent absentee ballots to millions of voters. It’s not clear that he can do so.

    Michigan mailed applications for the absentee ballots, not the ballots themselves.

    “Michigan sends absentee ballots to 7.7 million people ahead of Primaries and the General Election,” Trump tweeted Wednesday. “This was done illegally and without authorization by a rogue Secretary of State. I will ask to hold up funding to Michigan if they want to go down this Voter Fraud path!”
    …………
    Trump has been very vocal about his opposition to voting by mail, claiming the practice is ripe for fraud although there is scant evidence of widespread wrongdoing with mail-in voting. Trump himself requested a mail ballot for Florida’s GOP primary last month and he has voted absentee in previous elections.

    The Orangutan is being enabled by the MSM with his lies. He makes bigger & bigger ones as time goes on because:

    1. bigger screwups – like killing 100,000+ Americans due to his politicization of the response to the virus – require bigger distractions
    2. he knows he can get away with it
    3. he is a psychopath
    4. he is testing his “I can shoot people and still have supporters” theory
    5. he is emulating his idol Adolf and his role model Benito

    This Donald Trump, he is one sick fuck!

    I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

    This is clearly a very sociopathic thing to do. He may be able to hold up aid for a few days, but even the current Supreme Court’s not going to back him on this one.
