Texas-based radio and television host Alex Jones satirized the corporate media’s premature claims about the 2020 presidential election by mockingly declaring himself “President-elect of the United States” this week, accompanied by patriotic-styled graphics similar to the ones used by the Democratic Party when it called the election early for candidate Joe Biden.
“Ladies and gentlemen, the forty-sixth President of the United States,” Jones said as he walked up to the Infowars news desk in front of a screen that that read “Office of the President-elect, Alex Jones.”
“Here we are ladies and gentlemen, thank you. Thank you, thank you,” Jones continued. “You just have a dark blue background with the presidential seal on it, and some white font, and you are the President-elect. Forty-sixth President of the United States, Alexander Emerick Jones, of Texas.”
Jones added, “All you’ve gotta do is be a media outlet, and then announce that you are allowed to announce the winner. He’s got the lectern, he’s got the shield, he’s got the symbol, everything. And that’s why they’ve quadrupled down on this fraud, and have bet the farm and are just saying everywhere, ‘He is the President, he is the President, Joe Biden Joe Biden Joe Biden, President-elect, President-elect, President-elect.'”
The full skit can be viewed below:
Journalists have recently taken to harassing Republican senators and demanding they give congratulations to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris before the election has been decided by the remaining key battleground states.
On Tuesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo shut down a journalist who demanded to know why the State Department hadn’t welcomed in Joe Biden’s transition team before the election had been decided:
“Is the State Department currently planning to engage with the Biden transition team, and if not, and if not, at what point does it delay hamper a smooth transition, or pose a risk to national security?” a masked reporter snidely remarked.
Pompeo’s eyes sparkled as he retorted, “There will be a smooth transition of to a second Trump administration. Right, we’re ready.”
“The world is watching what’s taking place here, we’re gonna count all the votes, when the process is complete there will be electors selected, there’s a process, the Constitution lays it out pretty clearly,” the Secretary of State added.
The Trump campaign’s legal investigations into allegations of election fraud are still ongoing and have yet to be resolved at the time of this writing.
