WATCH: Rick Scott campaign rolls out crazed conspiracy theory against Broward County on MSNBC

Published

on

Florida Governor Rick Scott’s U.S. Senate campaign unleashed new claims of an election fraud conspiracy on MSNBC on Thursday.

Shortly after the host of “The Beat with Ari Melber” reported that Florida would not accept recount results from Broward County because the numbers were uploaded two minutes late, Melber was joined by Brad Todd, senior advisor to the Scott campaign.

“Brad, your candidate may ultimately win, but he has sort of embarrassed himself by saying things aren’t true, by alleging this process was going to hurt him,” Melber noted.

“Every time when you’re a kid and you said the dog ate my homework, the dog never ate your homework and they really didn’t have this issue of two minutes ahead of time,” Todd argued. “What happened was where Rick Scott gained 779 votes in Broward County and they decided maybe that’s not a good thing, let’s go the other way.”

“You sound like your candidate. you’re saying something, do you have any evidence? Melber asked.

“She’s a partisan Democrat, she’s made strings of mistakes,” Todd replied.

“That’s not what I’m asking you,” Melber pressed. “We’ve been covering Brenda Snipes’ problems. I’m asking you if you have any specific evidence that this was a political operation with regard to the two minutes.”

“Every mistake she makes benefits Bill Nelson,” Todd argued and then repeated that dogs never eat homework.

Melber turned to Miami Herald reporter Alex Harris, who was in the room.

“Did you find when you were inside, any evidence the two minute error was a way to deprive Rick Scott of votes?” Melber asked.

“To me it seems, like why would they do that work to be embarrassed again? This is something this elections department has been working hard on, to avoid any more embarrassment and here’s another one?” Harris replied.

At the end of the interview, Melber addressed Todd.

“You’ve made interesting allegations. Some relate to the incompetence that’s been documented, some have no support whatsoever,” he concluded.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) on Monday accused President Donald Trump of presiding over "the worse government blunder in modern history."

At his daily COVID-19 briefing, Cuomo said that it was time for the president to hit the "reset button" on his handling of the pandemic.

"If we don't tell the truth on the reset, COVID will never end," the New York governor explained. "It will ricochet across the country. It will just bounce back and forth."

"This was a colossal blunder -- how COVID was handled by this federal government," he continued. "Shame on all of you. Six months, lives lost. Hit the reset button, yes."

Published

President Donald Trump on Monday snapped at CNN's Jim Acosta when he reminded the president that the novel coronavirus so far has killed 155,000 Americans.

During a question-and-answer session with reporters, the president boasted that the United States had done an "amazing" job at handling the COVID-19 pandemic, at which point Acosta interrupted him and tried to ask him about the 155,000 people who have died from the disease in just five months.

"The U.S. has so many deaths," Acosta said.

"Hold it!" Trump replied.

"So many countries around the world..."

"Fake news CNN," he said. "Hold it. We have done a great job in this country. We haven't been given enough -- not me, Vice President Pence, the task force -- have not been given the kind of credit."

One family in Texas recently used their loved one’s obituary to criticize President Donald Trump and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for allowing “needless” COVID-19 deaths.

David W. Nagy died alone in a hospital bed, leaving behind his "inconsolable wife."

"He suffered greatly from the ravages of the COVID-19 virus and the separation from his much loved family who were not allowed at his bedside," the obituary says.

"Family members believe David's death was needless," the obituary continues. "They blame his death and the deaths of all of the other innocent people, on Trump, Abbott and all the other politicians who did not take this pandemic seriously and were more concerned with their popularity and votes than lives."
