A video of a man who repeatedly shouted, “The Biden crime family is stealing the election, the media is covering it up,” spread virally and was viewed more than 10 million times on Twitter.
The man, who wore a white tank top with the words “BBQ, Beer, Freedom” and a face mask around his chin, interrupted a live update on the election in Clark County, Nevada.
He continued, “We want our freedom for the world, give us our freedom, Joe Biden, you know Biden is covering up this election, he is stealing it! After no one intervenes or tries to remove him, the man turns around and walks away.
It comes after Trump makes groundless claims of election fraud. These allegations were met with a backlash from prominent Republicans and Trump supporters.
Timothy Burke shared the video on Twitter, where it was viewed more than 10.3 million times at the time of writing this article, with a subtitle: “That’s 60 million of your neighbors.
President Donald Trump currently has more than 68,000,000 votes in the presidential election, while former Vice President Joe Biden has more than 72,000,000 votes according to the Associated Press.

The same clip about the incident, tweeted by journalist Matthew Keys, who called the heckler a conspiracy theorist, was viewed 2.5 million times.
The “BBQ, Beer, Freedom” protester interrupted an election update of Clark County voter Joe Gloria. At the meeting, Gloria said that all ballots for the early voting and for Election Day had been counted, but that postal ballots stamped on November 3 could still be counted until November 10.
Gloria also said that the final vote, which is the final step to officially confirm the election, will begin on November 16.
The election official told reporters that some observers were removed from the observation areas during the count due to rule violations. He added that the reasons for these removals included repeated disruption of the processors’ work and rudeness to other observers.
Meanwhile, dozens of Trump supporters gathered in front of the Clark County Election Center where the count is taking place, shouting “Stop the theft” last night.
The organizer of the protest, Courtney Holland, wrote on Twitter: “Thousands of ballots were counted, and we were not allowed to observe or contest a single signature game for these votes.
Elsewhere, Trump supporters gathered Wednesday afternoon at TCF headquarters in Detroit, Michigan, to call on local officials to “stop the count.
Trump’s campaign said they would file a lawsuit to stop the count in Michigan, where Trump was in the lead, even though the state was now being called to bid by AP.
Meanwhile, in Arizona, where Biden is currently in the lead, some supporters of the president showed up at a count and called “count the vote.
Some of the protesters at the Maricopa County Elections Department in Phoenix were seen carrying firearms. The building was closed to the public and media while the local sheriff’s department was called in response.
Arizona was called to Biden by AP and Fox News, although other news channels, including CNN, did not call the race there….
