Trump’s Voter Fraud Hotline Is Getting Bombarded With Prank Calls

A voter fraud hotline set up by the Trump campaign following the election has fielded hundreds of calls a day, ABC News reports.

The campaign has sought to find instances of fraud to back up President Trump’s false claims about the election results. But it’s not exactly going to plan.

From the story:

But the hotline has turned into a nightmare for some, as staffers, some of whom have contracts that expire in the coming days, have been bombarded with prank calls from people laughing or mocking them over Biden’s win before hanging up, sources tell ABC News. Prank calling the Trump campaign’s hotline has already become a trend on TikTok, the social media network that was used earlier in the year in an attempt to tank the president’s rally in Tulsa by mass-requesting tickets.

The campaign’s lawsuits in several states challenging the results, meanwhile, have been called “pointless” and “meritless” by some in the campaign.

The fact that the president’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi have taken the lead should be interpreted as “the actions of Trump’s warriors who will do anything and ignore the obvious reality that this is over,” sources said.

Giuliani, interestingly, held a press conference Saturday outside a business called Four Seasons Total Landscaping, which led to speculation that the intended location was Philadelphia’s Four Seasons Hotel but he somehow fumbled the process.
