Donald Trump was apparently a bit slow on the draw regarding Tuesday’s major election story.
The president was mocked after he took to Twitter to praise the decision of a pair of Michigan Republican leaders to block the certification of results in populous Wayne County. As it seemed, he didn’t realize that the two had already reversed course and certified them. Joe Biden won there by a nearly 40-point margin, netting hundreds of thousands of votes that helped him win the state.
As the Detroit Free Press reported, the two GOP members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers initially refused to certify their final tally, sparking national controversy. But the two quickly relented, joining the two Democratic members of the board in certifying them a few hours later on Tuesday night.
