President Trump on Saturday wildly claimed that dogs were getting ballots mailed to them, raising concerns about his mental health.
“People died, they’re getting ballots,” Trump claimed at a rally in Nevada.
“They’re sending them to dogs,” he said. “You see that? Dogs got ballots. Everybody’s getting ballots. Probably everybody but Republicans are going to get the ballots.”

Trump last month claimed during a Fox & Friends interview that “tens of millions of ballots being sent to everybody and their dogs.”
“I go by the election,” Trump added. “Now with that being said, I have to tell you that if you go with this universal mail-in where you send millions of votes — in California, tens of millions of ballots being sent to everybody and their dogs. Dogs are getting them, OK? People that have been dead for 25 years are getting them.”
He later claimed at a press conference that the ballots were being sent to dogs and cats.
“Many were sent to dead people…I guess 2,3,4 were sent to dogs. One was sent to a cat. They are sent all over the place,” Trump said of voting ballot applications sent by mail.
