Trump Asked Top Official to Look Into Whether Chinese-Made Thermostats Changed Votes

“Your” former president sure loved to give the Chinese a lot of credit as to their abilities. After all, it would be exceedingly difficult to do some of the things Trump was willing to entertain. Just try to imagine how difficult it would have been to successfully install a myriad of thermostats (there had to be one hell of a lot of them if done), all to switch votes around because the Chinese preferred Biden.

Why would China prefer Biden? We have no idea. You? The Chinese seemed to manipulate Trump and get what they wanted from him.

Regardless, according to Mediaite:

In an excerpt from the soon-to-be-released Betrayal by ABC News’s Jonathan Karl, which was shared on Sunday’s edition of This Week, the former president was said to be “intrigued” by the theory – which was presented to him by Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark, who Trump wanted to install as acting attorney general.

“[Clark] believed that wireless thermostats made in China for Google by a company called Nest Labs might have been used to manipulate voting machines in Georgia,” Karl wrote. “The idea was nuts, but it intrigued Trump, who asked Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe to look into it.”

We have heard so much ducksh*t crazy out of camp Trump that it all sort of blurs together in crazy casserole. But seriously for a moment, thermostats that are able to change votes? If the Chinese have that kind of tech then why do we bother having elections at all. Why not just hand the country over and ask them to be nice to us? Certainly, Trump is asking himself that very question, quite often. So long as he got to call himself president.

This might be a good place to remind everyone, shortly after the election, right around January 6th, actually, we read that the Russians were the ones who had all our computers hacked, and not with thermostats, either.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?

If anyone was going to help anyone… Trump always references that he got 75 million votes, almost as if it were a target or something, a “can’t lose,” if he got 75 million votes.

Just another of those weird things, as yet unexplained. Much like Trump’s “brain.” Chinese thermostats.
