President Donald Trump was the subject of ridicule and mockery on Morning Joe Thursday the day after he claimed voter ID is required is buy cereal and ridiculously accused Democrats of voter fraud.
As we all know, Trump and the Republican Party lost big to Democrats on Election Day earlier this month, and races are still being called for Democrats as counting continues.
But Trump has been making excuses for the loss ever since, and on Wednesday he uttered his most embarrassing excuse yet.
During an interview, Trump falsely claimed that Americans need voter ID to buy cereal and claimed that Democrats disguise themselves so that they can vote multiple times instead of just once.
“The Republicans don’t win and that’s because of potentially illegal votes,” Trump said. “When people get in line that have absolutely no right to vote and they go around in circles. Sometimes they go to their car, put on a different hat, put on a different shirt, come in and vote again. Nobody takes anything. It’s really a disgrace what’s going on. If you buy a box of cereal — you have a voter ID.”
Trump made the accusations without offering any proof, clearly pretending that election officials are unable to tell if someone wearing a hat or different clothes is the same person on their ID who already voted.
It’s quite insulting really, not to mention asinine.
Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist found Trump’s remarks so ridiculous that they mocked them.
“It’s unbelievable,” Scarborough began. “There are moments when Donald Trump tweets things that I suppose we should be shocked by, but it just makes you laugh. Yesterday’s was so preposterous. I mean, is he suggesting they’re doing the Homer or sort of like the Bobby Valentine going back into the dugout after getting kicked out? He came wearing a mustache. Donald Trump’s not even trying anymore. These are so preposterous. Again, and doing it all to benefit a senatorial candidate in Florida who’s going to end up winning.”
Indeed, the Florida Senate and gubernatorial races are still close, but Republicans still have the lead. And there’s no evidence of voter fraud, and even the Florida Department of State agrees.
“I thought it was ‘The Onion,'” Geist responded. “I thought it was made up. What he did say is people go to their car after they voted. They put on a different hat. They put on a different shirt. And then they go back in and vote again. Quote, it’s really a disgrace what’s going on the president of the United States said of the voting.”

Trump is so desperate for an excuse to explain why Republicans lost that he is embarrassing himself with claims that make absolutely no sense.
Voter fraud is rare in this country, especially the in-person voter fraud that Trump is talking about. But Trump would rather continue making these kinds of claims instead of admitting that he’s a loser.
