Right-wing commentator, conspiracy theorist and Donald Trump–obsessed sycophant Wayne Allyn Root declared on his radio program on Wednesday that he refuses to believe that Democrats legitimately won control of the House of Representatives in the recent midterm elections, in part because the recent re-boot of the television show “Murphy Brown” was cancelled.
“I continue to believe that the left stole the election,” Root said during the third hour of his radio program, which airs on Newsmax TV. “The left stole the 2018 midterm elections in so many states around the country.”
Citing the fact that a recent speaking engagement for Bill and Hillary Clinton in Canada was not sold out, Root declared that Democrats could not possibly have won enough races to take control of the House because Democratic election rallies “were empty all over the country.”
“Nobody comes out to see the Clintons, the Obamas, the Bidens, or any Democratic candidate, yet you’re convincing me that you beat us and won all those House seats fair and square?” Root asked in disbelief. “At the same time that’s happening, anti-Trump Murphy Brown’s new series was cancelled after one season … [Every time] they put something liberal on the air like Murphy Brown that just bashes Trump from the beginning of the show to the end of the show, nobody tunes in to watch.”
“You’re telling me it’s a Democratic nation?” he continued. “You’re telling me it’s a liberal nation? You’re telling me liberals are winning elections when nobody shows up at their events and nobody watches their TV shows?”
“It makes no sense to me at all,” Root added. “I believe that it was a huge outpouring of love, and support, and loyalty to Donald Trump and it was repelled by voter fraud. It wasn’t repelled by liberals coming out to vote, it was repelled by conniving, fraudulent conspiracy. It was repelled by voter fraud all over this country.”
