Kari Lake's chances of becoming Arizona's next governor are slim. For sure, it's a tight race, but it looks like Katie Hobbs will prevail. The election-denying candidate just got a shoutout from the king of election-denying: Donald J. Trump.

The one-term president took to his Truth Social platform to dramatically whine about last night's results, saying that the election is "being drained away" from Lake.

"I assume everyone is watching Arizona as the great Kari Lake's easy election win is slowly, yet systematically, being drained away from her, and from the American people," Lumpy insisted. "This is a very sad thing to watch. Mail in Ballots, long election counts, many day elections, machines that very few people understand, massive counting centers, and more, are an American disaster. Our elections have become an unreliable joke, and the whole world is watching!"

He didn't stop there. He just had to drag Jimmy Carter into this hot mess.

"Even Jimmy Carter, in his and other highly respected pol's [SIC] and professional's Report, said Mail-In Ballots cannot be trusted. There will be massive cheating," he continued. "A ten year old child would understand that. When will Republicans learn? If they don't stop this mail-in SCAM now, there won't be any Republicans left. Get rid of McConnell. He should never have accepted what was sent to him by Mike Pence. He should have fought like hell like the Dems would have. Losers are Losers, that will never change!"

"Just another Giant Election Scam," he added in a separate post. "Wake up America!!!"

Lake has no political experience, and neither did Trump, and we see how well that worked out. So, that would be part of the reason right there, instead of chasing conspiracy theories down a rabbit hole. In contrast, Hobbs has served as Secretary of State of Arizona since January 2019. The other part of the reason is likely that Americans are getting sick of MAGA Republicans. Sick to death. Done. Over. Stick a fork in MAGA, thankyouverymuch.
