Former president Donald Trump apparently fell victim to a double-negative on Saturday night — inadvertently stating that anyone who believes his "big lie" is stupid or corrupt.
"Anybody that doesn’t think there wasn’t massive Election Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election is either very stupid, or very corrupt!" Trump said in a statement from his Save America PAC.

As Politico reporter Kyle Cheney noted, "This… doesn’t say what Donald Trump thinks it does."
Daniel Drezner, a professor at Tufts University's Fletcher School, wrote, "Former President Donald Trump is 100% correct."
CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale added, "This is, accidentally, Trump's first ever accurate statement on the legitimacy of the 2020 election."

Suspended teacher said shooter should have pulled fire alarm as diversion to fulfill hit list: report
A Michigan teacher has been suspended after allegedly telling his class that Oxford school shooter Ethan Crumbley should have pulled a fire alarm as a diversion so that he could fulfill his hit list.
In the wake of the Oxford shooting, which left four dead, Hopkins High School in Allegan County reportedly sent out a memo designed to assist teachers in talking to their students about the tragedy. But according to News Channel 3, one teacher "took it too far."
"Hopkins High School principal Ken Szczepanski said the comments referenced physical violence and weapons on the day after the deadly shootings at Oxford High School," the station reported.
One parent told the station that her child was in the teacher's class on Wednesday.
“The things that he said, how he would’ve committed the act differently with detail, is extremely scary,” the parent said. “That he would’ve pulled a smoke detector, so that he could create a distraction, in order to carry out his hit list and kill the people that he would need to. It was gut-wrenching devastation that a grown adult would mentally harm our children this way.”
Szczepanski called the teacher's comments "insensitive" and "off-script" — and they reportedly led to rumors that an employee planned to "shoot up" the school on Friday.
The district superintendent sent a letter to parents on Friday saying the rumors stemmed from an inappropriate classroom conversation. Now, parents are calling for the teacher — who reportedly is on leave pending a police investigation — to be fired.
“Zero tolerance, zero tolerance," one parent said. "He should absolutely not be back in school or teaching anywhere, ever."
Watch the report here.
A woman clipped four youths with her minivan following an altercation outside a junior high school in Las Vegas on Friday.
The incident occurred in a parking lot that is used as a pickup location for Silvestri Junior High School, according to the local Fox affiliate.
A student told the station that "a mom in a white van got into a physical fight with a student and then she was hellbent on running him down."
"You can see her right here gun it toward the students, the back door of that van wide open," the station reported. "The van speeds through the dirt as kids frantically dart out of the way. Kids described her as doing donuts in that dirt lot. Again, no one seriously hurt, though some kids were clipped by the van. You can see there were plenty of close calls there."
A student recalled that when he came out of school, he saw a large group of people surrounding a mother and "someone's kid."
"The mom was just like yelling at the kid, cursing at him. She ended up actually hitting him," the student said. "That's when my friend hit her back and then she got into the car and she backed up and she hit two or three cars while she was there and she chased my friend around that vacant lot and hit other kids, too."
The woman sped off before police arrived.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, police were still attempting to identify and locate her on Friday evening.
"Ron and Sherry Lawrence said their 14-year-old granddaughter was one of the kids struck," the newspaper reported. "The girl suffered bruises to her leg. They said she and other witnesses told them that a woman got into a fistfight with a boy in the alley shortly after a group of kids got out of Silvestri. The woman then jumped in her vehicle and fled the scene when the youths were struck."
“She punched the kid in the face, got back in her car and ran over four other children, and left the scene,” Ron Lawrence said.
