With the presidential race still in slight contention, Georgia announces a full by-hand recount of the millions of votes received.
With the United States’ 45th President Donald Trump making the claim he’s still the nation’s leader, America is currently in the process of vetting this call. Now, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has announced that they will be conducting an audit and recounting the millions of ballots cast in the 2020 presidential election.
“With the margin being so close, it will require a full by-hand recount in each county,” Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said at a news conference in Atlanta. “This will help build confidence.”
This is a fair call considering Joe Biden leads by the slim margin of 14,000 votes in the key battleground state.
“This is an important first step in the process to ensure that the election was fair and that every legal vote was counted,” Trump’s campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh said in a call with CNN.
Everyone is asking why the recent presidential polls were so inaccurate when it came to me. Because they are FAKE, just like much of the Lamestream Media!

Trump’s persistent claim on the presidency has one side of politics claiming an election hoax and the other fearing the potential downfall of democracy. Either way, it’s all chaos; and this climate has well and truly transcended the Oval Office.
Yesterday, The Washington Post reported that a postal worker in Erie, Pennsylvania had admitted to fabricating his claims of voter fraud – only for the same postal worker to come out on Twitter and assert that the statements made by The Washingon Post are false.
Meanwhile, after contacting officials in every state, The New York Times has categorically asserted their conclusion that there is no evidence of voter fraud.
This whole election has been such a joke that Trump’s voter fraud hotlines are getting spammed with prank calls.
I keep tellin folks, Biden just may have to be your rebound. And that’s okay… You’ve been in an abusive relationship and, Biden’s the decent guy who could be the bridge between your nightmare and your dream love… He may be who you date before you discover you’re into women…

Raffensperger has said he expects to start the recount before the end of the week, and for the entire process to be finished by November 20, which is the same day Georgia is required to certify their election results.
