Donald Trump Jr. emerged from Twitter jail Wednesday morning swinging, with his first tweet blasting Mattel for hawking a Barbie doll that seems to promote voter fraud.
Tuesday afternoon, while the president’s eldest son was still in Twitter jail, Mattel published a tweet announcing “four diverse dolls that inspire girls to see themselves in the roles that make up a winning campaign.”
But instead of creating, say, a barbie in the likeness of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, the first woman to run a successful U.S. presidential campaign, the dollmaker decided to create these:

If you click on the lower-right one, you’ll see that it’s supposed to represent a voter. What’s odd is that she’s wearing an “I Voted” sticker yet holding a voting ballot.

“Voter” Barbie must be a Democrat because she’s already wearing an “I Voted” sticker and yet she’s got another ballot in her hand. 🤔 https://t.co/kmOR09fUS6

Did he have a point? Perhaps he did.
For one, how would someone who just voted have a ballot in her hand? After all, you typically don’t receive an “I Voted” sticker until AFTER you turn in your ballot.
Liberal critics tried to claim otherwise, but others were quick to argue that they were dead wrong — as usual.
25 years of voting and stickers are always at the exit. 🙄

Wrong. I have voted twice every two year since turning 18. So that’s 12 times. Not once were th stickers handed out before, there is a basket at the exit that someone sits next to and hands them out. You’re an idiot.

It’s amazing how much the #Trump family gets done for this country and still has time to serve all these lefties on @twitter daily. Everything stated above is a fact! I Voted stickers only handed out in Dem polling districts and the ballot should already be in box if she voted!

Get my sticker “after”. Never before.

No they do not! I work at the polls and you do not give sticker until after they vote! You show your ID first to make sure it match the name on register…… who ever gives them out before is a cheat!

Second, Democrats have become hysterically loud proponents of mail-in ballots and demanded they be offered to all voters for the upcoming 2020 race. However, a growing body of evidence shows that such a move would engender catastrophic consequences.
For proof, just look to The Atlantic, a left-of-center magazine that ran an ominous report last week about the repercussions mail-in ballots have had in New York.
“More than a month after New York’s June 23 primary elections, state election officials are still counting votes. In some legislative districts, they haven’t even started counting absentee votes,” the outlet reported.
“The chaos in New York is a warning about November’s elections: Voting is being transformed by the pandemic. But no state has built new election infrastructure. No state has the time or the money to make sure vote-counting will go smoothly in November.”
“This is what happens when you jury-rig a system that hasn’t been designed or implemented or tested before,” an unnamed election official told the outlet.
Problems with ballots have been nationwide.
California was forced to toss over 100,000 mail-in ballots from its March presidential primary election over mistakes:

The examples go on for days, yet to hear Democrats and the vast majority of the mainstream press tell it, mail-in ballots pose no cause for concern.
