(NewsGlobal.com)- The Trump-hating reporter Josh Dawsey of the Washington Post got a front-row seat at a recent Mar-a-Lago screening of the new Citizen’s United documentary “Rigged: The Zuckerberg Funded Plot to Defeat Donald Trump.”
And because Dawsey despises Trump and peddles the narrative that claims of election fraud have been “debunked” and “disproven,” he took delight in attacking those in attendance at the screening in an article titled “False election claims dominate party for Trump, allies at Mar-a-Lago.”
Dawsey was at Mar-a-Lago at the invitation of Donald Trump who also sat down for an interview with the Trump-hating reporter.
In his report of the screening, Dawsey described how Trump greeted his guests as they entered the ballroom’s “makeshift movie theater.” He noted that nothing animates Trump more than “his efforts to overturn the 2020 election,” adding that Trump was “particularly ebullient” about the prospect of screening the documentary, which, according to Dawsey, Trump compared to “Citizen Kane” among other films.
Dawsey then reminds his readers that Trump’s “false claims” about voter fraud “unsettled American democracy” and partially fueled the “deadly attack” on the Capitol on January 6. He quickly adds that Trump’s claims have been “largely debunked.”
A confused Dawsey marveled that none of the guests were standing around talking about the January 6 select committee. For those of us who don’t work for the Washington Post, that isn’t particularly surprising. The January 6 committee is only important among Washington DC’s political and media elites.
But, Dawsey adds, Trump’s guests seemed blissfully unaware that in the “outside world” the former President is unpopular and his “grip” on the GOP “has faded some.”
The screening kicked off with some words from Citizens United’s David Bossie who argued that it was vital to talk about what happened in the 2020 election. Then Trump addressed the guests, telling them Russia wouldn’t have invaded Ukraine and inflation would be lower if the 2020 election wasn’t rigged.
“Rigged: The Zuckerberg-Funded Plot to Defeat Donald Trump” breaks down how Mark Zuckerberg-funded leftwing nonprofit groups bought off local elections offices in the 2020 election to help get Joe Biden elected.
