"Trumpís brain is a pincushion for conspiracy theories." NYT EDITORIAL BOARD

There are so many lies and delusions flowing daily from the Trump campaign that itís easy to miss the times when the Republican nominee is being not just ludicrous, but dangerous. This is one.

Mr. Trump has seized on the charge that Hillary Clinton plans to win by cheating. He has said it before, but he keeps on saying it. This looks like pre-emptive face-saving, of course ó getting an excuse ready if he loses badly. But itís worse than that.

Mr. Trump has been attacking recent court decisions striking down utterly unjustified state voter-identification laws that are attempts by Republican legislatures to hinder black and Latino voters, who tend to vote Democratic. The crime the laws were meant to prevent ó voting by fraudulent voters with fake IDs ó is a Republican myth, concocted for partisan reasons. There is no evidence that such fraud exists on any scale, only a handful of isolated instances.

<snipped>

Mr. Trumpís brain is a pincushion for conspiracy theories, so maybe itís no surprise that he thinks the Clinton campaign will be sending African-Americans and foreigners into booths across the country to fake their votes over and over, millions of times.
