Trump’s newly leaked phone call is super awkward

It may be a brand new year but it appears that some things never change: namely, leaked phone calls that make a member of the Trump family[1] sound less than… ideal. This time, it’s a conversation involving Donald himself[2] (rather than his wife Melania ranting about Christmas[3]) and it makes for some highly *awkward* listening.

In a transcript of the hourlong chat shared by the New York Times[4], the soon to be ex-President of the United States can be heard once more pushing debunked election fraud claims while in conversation with Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, and his office’s general counsel, Ryan Germany.

A fact-checking follow-up[5] has also been published and it sounds an awfully lot like Trump is trying to pressure the Georgian official into manipulating the result of the vote[6] in his favour… I mean, give it a rest already? Surely his impending house move is enough to keep him busy? Those boxes won’t pack themselves!

Other inaccuracies peddled by Trump during the call include him accusing thousands of ballots being mailed in by people who are deceased, and claiming that suitcases full of ballots voting for Joe Biden were also wheeled in, despite security camera footage proving otherwise (according to Raffensperger).

“So dead people voted,” Trump says. “And I think the number is close to 5,000 people.” In reality, Raffensperger responds, only two ballots attributed to a person who has died have been found. Raffensperger also stands his ground when Trump says “I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have… There’s nothing wrong with saying you know, you’ve recalculated” and tells the President “Well, Mr. President, the challenge that you have is the data you have is wrong.”

Naturally, since the transcript has been shared, social media users are discussing the conversation and Twitter has provided some thought-provoking responses to the whole saga.

The hashtag #TrumpBegged has begun to gain traction, with social media fans comparing the phone call to Charles Dickens’ classic, Oliver, in which the down and out protagonist famously begs for more food (or in this case votes).

Finally, another social media user posted a photo of what looks like Trump shouting at a small boy who is mowing the White House lawn and imagined what he might have been asking the lad:
