In the aftermath of perhaps the most explosive presidential election in a decade, actor Jon Voight has expressed his support for President Trump in a bizarre and rambling Twitter video...
Evidently, Voight isn't too happy with Joe Biden's victory.The Hollywood icon, who has starred in a whole array of movies such as Midnight Cowboy, Enemy of the State, and Heat, went on a shocking Twitter rant yesterday wherein he made some wild accusations about the Democrats.
In a carefully staged video, the fervent Trump supporter voiced his support for the president...And made some questionable claims about the "demonic" Biden team, and the fight between "good and evil."
Now, President Trump will probably pleased with Voight's loyalty...Because, just last week, he suffered a historic and embarrassing loss to his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden.
It was a close call...

Shortly after his victory, Biden tweeted this:
"America, I’m honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country. The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a President for all Americans -whether you voted for me or not. I will keep the faith that you have placed in me."

Democrats all over the country quickly began rejoicing at the news of Biden's historic win...
And remarkable footage of people cheering and celebrating from the streets of New York was quick to circulate.
We just learned that Joe Biden has been elected 46th President of the United States, New York can’t stop cheering.… https://t.co/8mPwgcn0tx— Quentin A. Alexandre (@Quentin A. Alexandre)1604767345.0
However, quite predictably...
via: GettyPresident Trump wasn't in the mood to celebrate.
Trump's reaction to Biden's win has been nothing short of outrageous.
via: GettyThough the president is a historically sore loser - he's very rarely had to admit defeat ever in his life - and has long made wild accusations against the Biden campaign team, people simply cannot believe his refusal to accept what has happened.
His first response to Biden's win was to release a lengthy and damning statement...In which he accused Biden and his team of rigging the entire election. As per Sky News, the statement read: “We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. “The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor. “In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process. Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media."
The statement then went on to explain how legal proceedings will begin immediately.It continued: “Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated. “The American People are entitled to an honest election: that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots. This is the only way to ensure the public has full confidence in our election. “It remains shocking that the Biden campaign refuses to agree with this basic principle and wants ballots counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by ineligible or deceased voters. Only a party engaged in wrongdoing would unlawfully keep observers out of the count room - and then fight in court to block their access. “So what is Biden hiding? I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands."
And the frenzied Twitter rants were quick to follow.In his rage, Trump took to the social media platform to dispute the result further, insisting that he was the one to have won.
It didn't take him long to slam the Biden campaign as "thieves.""The big city machines are corrupt. This was a stolen election. Best pollster in Britain wrote this morning that this clearly was a stolen election, that it’s impossible to imagine that Biden outran Obama in some of these states."
However, he still tried to take some small victory from the situation...And proudly Tweeted that he received a record-breaking number of votes.
But the statistics beg to differ.It recently emerged that Biden is leading Trump by over 5 million popular votes.
At the time of writing, Biden has received a total of 77,170,769 votes...While Trump brings up the rear with 72,057,511 votes, according to the Associated Press. It's a close call, yes, but still a loss all the same.
Most people have been laughing at Trump's refusal to accept reality...
Subsequently giving him the new nickname, "sore loser."

But there are still plenty of loud-and-proud Trump supporters out there...And they aren't afraid to voice their loyalty to the president, as well as support his unproven claims of electoral fraud.
And Jon Voight is amongst them.As stated earlier, the Oscar-award-winning actor is a loyal Trump supporter and, yesterday, he posted a bizarre video onto Twitter wherein he made wild accusations against Biden and his team.
Now, this isn't the first time Voight has taken to Twitter to spew his Republican propaganda.
In October, just weeks before the election, he posted this video, where he called the left "deceitful" and called for the "children of God" to see Trump's "greatness."

And his most recent video certainly proves that...
Which contains claims that has left people gob-smacked, to say the least.
@jonvoight You need help. https://t.co/jvI42C8Ry8— DebbieM *Biden/Harris and the Senate/House!* (@DebbieM *Biden/Harris and the Senate/House!*)1605098437.0
Fans have accused the actor of being "out of touch with reality"...
And it's clear that there's genuine concern over his wellbeing following the bizarre video.
@jonvoight This man is sicker than I thought. He really needs to seek help ASAP! Hope he has family or friends that… https://t.co/C2DE4sLr3W— Michael A (@Michael A)1605056456.0
However, a fair amount agreed with Voight's remarks...
And he has been praised for showing his commitment to President Trump.
@jonvoight Thank you so much for your commitment and support to President Trump 👍 God bless you Jon ❤️🇺🇸— Americansoul (@Americansoul)1605185843.0
Now, taking on the tone of a feverish preacher, Voight refused to recognize the results of the presidential election. He began:"My fellow Americans, I stand here with all that feel as I do: disgusted with this lie that Biden has been chosen... as if we all don’t know the truth."
Clearly reading from cue cards behind the camera, Voight pushes the idea that "leftists" have no idea that they are celebrating “the horror they will be in for"...Because, according to him, this election is “the battle of righteousness versus Satan."
He then went on to encourage Trump supporters to fight against Biden’s win “because these Leftists are evil, corrupt, and they want to tear down this nation."And claimed that challenging Biden's victory is simply a matter of faith and that those listening should trust in God and fight for Trump’s victory. “Let us fight this fight as if it is our last fight on earth."
