Former President Donald Trump on Monday demanded that his endorsed candidate in the Arizona gubernatorial election, Kari Lake, be “installed governor” despite her loss to Democrat Katie Hobbs.

Lake lost a razor-thin election with Hobbs, and with no evidence of fraud was found, Republican Gov. Doug Ducey congratulated Hobbs on her win. Lake, however, has been fighting the results, claiming that there was widespread fraud and irregularities in the election.

At 2:18 am Monday morning, Trump wrote on Truth Social: “Massive numbers of “BROKEN” voting machines in Republican Districts on Election Day. Mechanics sent in to “FIX” them made them worse. Kari had to be taken to a Democrat area, which was working perfectly, to vote. Her opponent ran the Election. This is yet another criminal voting operation – SO OBVIOUS. Kari Lake should be installed Governor of Arizona. This is almost as bad as the 2020 Presidential Election, which the Unselect Committee refuses to touch because they know it was Fraudulent!”

Despite her insistence that the Arizona election was fraudulent, Lake has so far been unsuccessful in convincing a court.

  1. The posts from Trump on his Truth Social demonstrate that he has no understanding of the election process. He should know that there is no way to install a losing candidate to any office.
    Like Trump in 2020, Kari Lake was claiming election fraud before the first ballots were cask.

  2. Every בר-דעת comprehends that an election that has such a long window of time to cast & mail in votes, and that takes so long to count, is clearly rigged, so President Donald Trump שליט”א is most definitely so correct on this one, both in 2020 & in 2022.

  3. At a certain point, there is no longer any value in focusing on the rants of a deranged individual and thereby providing the sought-after attention and publicity driving his derangement.

  4. It’s not over in Arizona as long as counties refuse to certify. they should throw out all the votes and just have a straight paper ballot election. I don’t know why Yeshiva World chooses biased stories or at least stories that have a biased slant to it. Lake is not declared the loser until the votes are certified.
