Marjorie Taylor Greene Dutifully Declares 'Slowly Stolen Election' Excuse in Select Midterm Races

As if on cue, predictable Republican lawmakers blamed “rigged” or “stolen” elections, with zero proof to back any of it up, for key midterm losses — primary losses by candidates backed by Donald Trump.


Let’s be clear: Of course, lax early voting, mail-in ballots — unpostmarked or unsigned ballots included — and a host of other irregularities make election results manipulation easier and therefore must be reformed or eliminated. That said, knee-jerk accusations of “rigged” and “stolen” elections without substantive proof amount to nothing more than selective excuses for selective losses.

So, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), who easily won re-election, tweeted the following on Sunday:

Are we allowed to say “slowly stolen election” on Twitter now?

Now that Elon Musk sits at the Twitter helm, MTG obviously meant.

Greene’s insinuations came as a growing number of Republicans now blame Donald Trump for the GOP’s disastrous underperformance in the 2022 midterm elections, with many of his election-denying MAGA candidates losing races across the country. These are facts — love ’em, hate ’em, or otherwise.

Donald Trump himself has focused more on lashing out at other Republicans than on “stolen” elections, thus far targeting Govs. Ron DeSantis of Florida and Glenn Youngkin of Virginia, along with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, of whom Trump declared, as the red wave became a red trickle: “Everyone despises him.”


“It’s Mitch McConnell‘s fault,” Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform on Sunday.

Spending money to defeat great Republican candidates instead of backing Blake Masters and others was a big mistake. Giving 4 Trillion Dollars to the Radical Left for the Green New Deal, not Infrastructure, was an even bigger mistake. He blew the Midterms, and everyone despises him and his otherwise lovely wife, Coco Chow!

And so it continues, with each side steadfastly refusing to give credence to the other’s position.

When will it end?

I hate to say it — and I hope like hell I’m wrong — but not until Republican voters snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in the 2024 presidential election.

If even then.
