Apparently, ballot manipulation isn't just an issue in real presidential elections... it's a problem in fake ones, too!
Nickelodeon Kids, a mainstream media television outlet targeted at children, has been running a mock presidential election for kids every four years since 1988. With only one exception: the Democratic nominee won every single time!
That was about to change this week when Donald Trump was sailing to victory, getting the most votes from the kids participating... Until Nickelodeon and their parent company put a stop to it.
“Though kids are not of an age to vote, ‘Kids Pick the President’ is a platform where their voices do count, and they deserve to be heard,” read a company statement. “Therefore, out of respect for kids everywhere and in the spirit of civic responsibility, we present the name of the winner based on votes cast fairly and within our stated guidelines of one vote counted per household device.”
Just like the Democrats in Congress, who fabricated a years long hoax about Russia interfering in the 2016 election, Nick Kids said that they were hacked too!
After all, how could the children that cartoon network dutifully indoctrinated over the years still support the wrong guy?
While Donald Trump was about to win, Viacom, the parent company of Nickelodeon Kids, erased 130,000 votes from their servers, leaving less than half of the original ballots cast by American kids.
Fake election claims of voter fraud? That's a new one!
