“I think the Kentucky race that Mitch McConnell was re-elected in against all percentages that pertained beforehand, and exit polling.”
Retired Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson claimed “there was a little cheating” to reelect Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront.
Fill-in host Kate Bolduan and the other panelists did not dispute Wilkerson’s suggestion.
No no no no. You do not get to rail against President Donald Trump and his allies when they scream cheating in the presidential election and then do not pushback when someone makes a similar claim about another election.
Wilkerson’s thoughts came out during a segment about just that, too! And absolutely no pushback.
I have not heard anything about cheating in Kentucky. I have not heard anything about cheating in McConnell’s race.
Wilkerson tried to destroy Trump and those other him:
I think we’re seeing just how desperate Trump is becoming himself and how desperate the last remaining rats on the ship, if you will, are becoming because of that. We see Bannon apparently coming back on scene again probably most ardently seeking a pardon.
We see things like you just pointed out, General Flynn — I don’t know, if I were in charge of the military, if I were the chairman (of the Joint Chiefs) or if I were the secretary of the Defense appropriately, I’d probably call Flynn back to active duty and then prosecute him under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. You can pick your charge there. Incitement to insurrection or whatever. These are desperate people.
Then Wilkerson slips in his own conspiracy theory:
Maybe in Kentucky there was a little cheating. I think the Kentucky race that Mitch McConnell was re-elected in against all percentages that pertained beforehand, and exit polling. And maybe there was something there, but you never look into the Republicans for cheating. And I can tell you that. I’m a Republican.
Is anyone else’s head spinning? I’d say I’m shocked, but I’m not.
Tonight, CNN guest Col. Lawrence Wilkerson claimed, without evidence, that the 2020 election was fantastic but there "was a little cheating" in Kentucky to get Sen. Mitch McConnell reelected. Then claimed no one investigates GOPers for cheating. The host said nothing to correct. pic.twitter.com/m4F8SoxTId
