HOAX ALERT: NO, A Postal Worker HAS NOT Been Destroying Trump Ballots

On Sunday a Twitter user by the name of @randygdub posted a tweet (seen below), claiming to be a United States Postal Service employee.

The Twitter user bragged about destroying absentee ballots that had been filed for Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump.

It wasn’t long until the tweet caught the attention of other users on Twitter and began calling the offender out on his actions:

Actor Scott Baio also tweeted about the alleged crime:

Many conservative outlets, and some that are not so conservative, ran with it in a very short amount of time, causing it to go viral across Facebook.

A quick search on Google revealed quite a few results of those who were fooled:

As the Boston Globe mentioned:

It was not the most credible of pranks. For one, @randygdub’s Twitter profile had him living in California, not Ohio. (“California is a diversion,’’ he explained/joked in DM today.) For another, the ‘‘ripping up ballots’’ line was perfectly in sync with a persona that mocked Trump supporters for believing any rumor that flew in from the Internet.

As you can probably imagine, there has been no shortage of liberal outlets and ‘fact-checkers’ debunking the falsehood:

Snookered

So, anyway folks, we were snookered. Let the liberals laugh and poke fun all they want because the real joke is who they’ve chosen as their candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
