Former President Donald Trump is being ridiculed for hailing a taxpayer-funded effort by Arizona legislature Republicans to “audit” the results of the 2020 election in Maricopa County, and demanding that Republican Gov. Doug Ducey deploy the National Guard to “protect” the pro-Trump technology company tasked with carrying out the effort.
Trump’s demand, which came in a frantic press release on Saturday, triggered an avalanche of mockery from commenters on social media, many of whom noted the futility of the Arizona GOP’s exercise and the former president’s ongoing unwillingness to admit that he lost the presidential election legitimately.
Chech some of the responses below.

I keep looking at the date thinking this was from Nov. Someone tell the orange man he doesn’t get to call for anything. He’s no longer president, or relevant. The world has returned to sanity. This is funny stuff.

So we count again? So if we counted already a couple times… and have the same result. Now we do it again, insanity. Such a waste of resources.

Someone should tell the 🍊🤡 his cultists can audit to their hearts' content; it won't matter. The count was certified. The electoral votes were counted. President Biden was sworn in. No backsies. And SCOTUS has already shown they've no interest in MAGAt electoral BS.
