President Donald Trump’s campaign set up a hotline for voters to report fraud but the experience has been a “nightmare” for staffers, according to ABC News.
The campaign set up a headquarters at Arlington, Virginia to “try to find instances of voter fraud” after Trump repeatedly pushed baseless allegations of misconduct and refused to concede the election.
But the hotline has “turned into a nightmare” as staffers have been “bombarded with prank calls from people laughing or mocking them over Biden's win before hanging up,” according to the report.
TikTok teens hassle campaign aides:
Pranking the Trump hotline quickly became a trend on TikTok.
“I don’t want to tell anyone what to do, but if you felt like calling this number and, say, reporting the Hamburglar, I can confirm from personal experience that it would be very funny,” Alex Hirsch, the creator of “Gravity Falls,” said on Twitter.
Hirsch and others have been posting recordings of their calls ever since.
Trump legal fundraises money for campaign debt:
Trump’s campaign has sent out a flood of emails raising money for Trump’s dubious legal election challenges but the fine print says half the money could be used to pay his campaign debt.
“Clicking through to the donation page, potential givers can review a disclaimer that 50% of any contribution will be used for general election campaign debt retirement and 50% for the campaign’s recount account,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “Other Trump fundraising pitches in recent days ask for help to ‘protect the integrity of this election’ but lead to a donation page for Mr. Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ committee. The fine print on those solicitations says 60% of a contribution helps the campaign retire debt and 40% goes to the Republican National Committee.”
