Even after each of the key battleground states fulfilled recount requests and requirements, long after they certified their election results – with each certification confirming Joe Biden’s victory and title as President-elect- there are STILL well known Republicans continued to publicly question the outcome.
Former Congresswoman and, yes, one-time presidential candidate Michele Bachmann recently appeared at a rally at Salem Baptist Church in Dalton, Georgia.
Georgia, of course, was on the minds of Americans everywhere as the upcoming runoff elections hang in the balance.
But when Bachmann appeared at the church rally, she went off on some conservative conspiracy theories on a whole new level.
Clips appeared all over Twitter, as did reactions to her unhinged rant, which included claims that Satan himself had stolen Bachmann’s vote.
Bachmann began with falsehoods, yes, but these were nothing compared to what she ended up saying. Bachmann was heard saying: “From the political point of view, from the legal point of view, from the moral point of view, America is not on board with Joe Biden as the next president of the United States.”
It’s super weird to mix politics and religion. There’s something manipulative about it. USA is a secular nation. Was established as such, operates as such, and therefore is advanced in nature. We do not live and do not want to live in a theocracy. Remove God from politics.— Laura (@LauraFindsTruth) December 8, 2020
Twitter users had some fun with this, to be sure…
Will she be filing a lawsuit?— Elaina McCartney (@fisheye_view) December 9, 2020
She aught to go down there and get her vote back from the devil— Roger Rabbit (@robertfj48) December 8, 2020

Bachmann continued to dig herself a hole, saying:
“We’re not that dumb in the United States because we know, without a shadow of a doubt, this man did not get the votes on election night.” “It didn’t happen. Donald Trump got the votes on election night. So why would we be like drones, chumps, and fools to go along with this?”
Just an important fact check at this point- every single reliable source has confirmed Biden as the victor by several million votes. Even Trump’s own cybersecurity chief has said the election was “the most secure in American history.” (He was later fired for saying this buuuut…..
If ‘god’ let ‘satan’ steal her vote, he must be okay with the situation, right?— Dr. Elizabeth Scheiber (she/her) (@gattamassima) December 8, 2020
Bachmann referenced the 400th anniversary of the colony at Plymouth Rock and continued her hateful speech:
“When the clock was striking 11:59 and 59 seconds on the 400th anniversary of this gift of God to the world, this idea, of voting for the people and the laws that you live under, that we take for granted?”
“That’s exactly when Satan was snatching away from America rule by the consent of the governed.”
It’s hard to even make sense of what Bachmann is saying at this point. But some Twitter users have some strong words for her.
She & others like her would be crucifying Jesus if he lived in our times. She & others like her are why I left the church. I find solace in talking with God on my own. Hanging on to my faith the best I can. Stay strong & steadfast in your faith/beliefs, religious or not. 🇺🇸— Country Lovin Gal (@TurnKansasBlue) December 8, 2020
Her closing statement:
“[Satan is] stealing from us our right to vote. I am highly offended, insulted, angry, and I’m not going to stand for the fact that my vote was stolen!”
Before we go, here’s another clip where Bachmann claims she sees Satan in this election…
Former congresswoman Michele Bachmann has never been a victim of domestic abuse, but every day since the election, she has felt wounded “and I sensed that that was Satan [who] was physically throwing punches, and wounding, and abusing.” pic.twitter.com/DQ5ZwNY5lS— Right Wing Watch (@RightWingWatch) December 7, 2020
They tried fruitlessly to blame Trump’s loss on countless things, might as well lay it on ol’ Satan and see if that gets any traction.
