Thoroughly defeated president Donald Trump has still not conceded that he lost the election. But he is setting new records for flagged, “This claim is disputed” posts on Twitter.

A review by the Broke-Ass Stuart Doomscrolling Investigative I-Team has found that in the last 24 hours, 17 of the President’s 36 tweets have been flagged by Twitter as false. The vast majority of these have been labeled with the tag “This claim about election fraud is disputed,” though in cases of his “I WON THE ELECTION” tweets, the tag “Multiple sources have called the election differently” was applied. 

Trump’s flagged falsehoods included an epic, nine-in-a-row run where nine consecutive tweets were flagged as untruths. The majority of these were related to yesterday’s drama with the Michigan vote count certification

This analysis does not count Trump’s retweets of other people’s tweets. But it does count Trump’s retweets of himself, and Trump does often retweet himself, even when the original tweet has been flagged for review.

We had a good laugh doing this analysis, but really, it’s incredibly goddamned sad that this man is tweeting 36 times a day as we approach 250,000 Americans dead.  But those flags of Trump’s tweets do give us some hope that these nightmares will soon end. After all, multiple sources have called the election for someone other than Donald Trump.
