Maxine Waters’ latest accusation is that the Trump administration is attempting to deprive senior citizens of their social security checks.
Waters is following the lead of the new Democrat talking point: Trump is destroying the Post Office. The main problem with her statement? Social Security hasn’t mailed paper checks since the Obama Administration.
Propaganda vs. Truth
Maxine Waters’ accusation, in the form of a tweet, stated: “Trump, we’re all hearing from seniors! They need their medicine, their groceries, they need their disability & social security checks!
Why are you harming us by slowing down the mail system & destroying the #USPS! Don’t you understand how important the mail system is?” she said.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan also told the same lie about social security checks on CNN. In March of 2013, the government switched to direct deposit for social security and many other benefits. Even CNN reported this!
Democrats’ Insane Post Office Conspiracies
The social security check lie is only one of the many recent conspiracies related to the Post Office. The Democrats have begun starting rumors that the Trump Administration is removing post office boxes throughout the country.
The post office has come out and stated that these boxes were either being replaced with new ones, or being moved to more high-trafficked areas.
Another conspiracy theory started because actress Jamie Lee Curtis tweeted a photo of a red tow truck carrying a mail truck, stating: “I swear, in broad daylight, the driver of the red truck had a red cap on with white letters.
Conspiracy? Outright attempt at stealing the election by denying the access of the @USPS ? Let’s not let it happen!”
Has she considered that employees of a company with red tow trucks might wear a red hat with the company name in white?
All of these conspiracy theories are being pushed so close to the first election that may be largely decided by mail-in voting.
Postmaster General Louis DeJoy announced on August 18th that all planned operational changes to the postal service will be suspended until after the election. DeJoy’s statement read: “To avoid even the appearance of any impact on election mail, I am suspending these initiatives until after the election is concluded.”
