Die-hard Trump support and right-wing radio host Bill Mitchell took to his Twitter on Wednesday in an attempt to rationalize Doug Jones’ win against pedophile Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race (since Moore being a pedophile isn’t enough). He insinuated that black voters had snuck into Alabama from Mississippi to vote for Jones, which would “explain the 30% turnout higher than population percentage.”
I am hearing rumors that black voters from MS were encouraged to cross over into AL and vote. Anyone else hearing this? Anything to it? That might explain the 30% turnout higher than population percentage. Just reporting the rumor.

“Just reporting the rumor” wrote Mitchell, a “rumor” he undoubtedly started himself. Tweets in the form of joke responses quickly poured in:
Alabama resident here, can confirm mysterious convoy of black buses last night

Mississippi resident here, can confirm I was one of those who crossed over. But an IMPORTANT correction: the vans were dark grayish and not black.

I flew down from the northeast, covered my face with shoe polish, and voted in 5 different districts under the names Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon, and Michael.
