Video appears to catch de Blasio’s daughter in some whopper ‘misspeaks’ on presidential election

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s daughter Chiara appears to commit a double gaffe in an interview with a local reporter earlier this week following the media’s pronouncement that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was the president-elect.

In response to the reporter’s question as to why she thinks the alleged election of Biden Harris “is so special,” Chiara appears to respond, “For me, it’s really special because now we have the first, black, Asian, female president in office and elected, and Joe Biden was able to steal…steal? No, he was able to win, sorry, he was able to win the election.”

Video of the exchange was tweeted by Angela Stanton King, a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump who unsuccessfully ran for the U.S. House seat in Georgia that became vacant after long-serving civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis (D) passed away earlier this year.

Chiara de Blasio’s gaffe comes on the heels of an earlier verbal slip of the tongue by Biden in late October during an appearance on “Pod Save America,” a podcast that was launched by left-wing members of former President Barack Obama’s administration.

“We’re in a situation where we have put together — and you guys did it for President Obama’s administration before this — we have put together, I think the most extensive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics,” Biden said.

It’s unclear what exactly the former vice president meant, but his response went viral online at the time and has drawn new scrutiny in the days following the Nov. 3 election, as President Donald Trump’s campaign and its legal surrogates continue to claim they are uncovering evidence of both fraud and voting irregularities in a number of states.

On Tuesday, Matt Schlapp, head of the American Conservative Union, told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer the Trump campaign has found at least 3,000 improper ballots in Nevada, a number that he says will “easily swell to 9,000 and higher” as more searches of voting rolls and databases occur.

“There’s a mantra going on in the media that there’s no evidence, that there’s no proof” of fraud, he said. “When I went out to Nevada, I thought I’d see a little bit of fraud there, a little bit of problems there, that’s what you normally find on the ground.

“I’ve never been to a place where we’ve been able to demonstrate almost immediately thousands and thousands of improper ballots,” Schlapp continued. “And we haven’t even gotten to the mother lode of the mail-in ballots.”

Also, Fox News host Laura Ingraham interviewed a Clark County, Nevada poll worker who said in a sworn affidavit the Trump campaign has sent to the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division alleging she witnessed a host of voting irregularities.

The woman, who asked not to be identified out of fear for her safety, said she witnessed several people at a “Biden-Harris van” near the polling station while on a break appearing to rip open ballots and replace them with others they were allegedly marking.

Meanwhile, the Trump campaign presented evidence publicly in Georgia Wednesday allegedly indicating several dead people cast ballots. The campaign’s evidence was presented as Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensparger announced he will conduct a manual recount of ballots after came from behind to overtake the president by several thousand votes.

“This will help build confidence. It will be an audit, a recount, and a re-canvas all at once,” Raffensperger, a Republican, told reporters. “It will be a heavy lift.”

And on Sunday, Michael Flynn’s lawyer, Sidney Powell, who is also working on behalf of the Trump campaign’s legal team, told Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo that there are increasing questions about electronic Dominion Voting Systems used in several battleground states.

She claimed multiple issues have been found with Dominion balloting software, which was at the center of some controversy last week in Antrim County, Mich.

“The computer glitches could not and should not have happened at all,” Powell said, adding that “is where the fraud took place, where they were flipping votes in the computer system or adding voters that did not exist.”

“They had this all planned, Maria. They had the algorithms, they had the paper ballots waiting to be inserted if and when needed, and notably, President Trump’s vote in the blue states went up enormously,” she added. “That’s when they had to stop the vote count and go in and replace votes for Biden and take away Trump votes.”

Presidential lawyer Rudy Giuliani told Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast that Dominion whistleblowers have contacted the Trump campaign and will be coming forward soon.
