The left is livid after finding out that there are postal mailboxes being locked up and even some that are being completely taken away.
They are accusing President Trump of doing this to try and create voter suppression for the upcoming election by not giving the people a way to send in their mail-in ballots or at least making it more difficult to do so.
This of course is false and I'll explain why in just a minute, but this being false doesn't stop the left from using it as a weapon to attack the President.
Even former NBA player Rex Chapman went nuts about it and tweeted,
In your entire life have you ever seen a LOCKED mailbox at the USPS?
Now you have.
A disgrace and immediate threat to American democracy. Shame on them. Shame on the GOP.
Where are you @senatemajldr ?"
Well, someone who lives in the area went down there and eased his mind since he can't take half a second to do any sort of research.
I just drove there. There was a guy taking photos because he saw the inaccurate post on Twitter. I showed him that there were slots on the other side (I have no idea why I called them holes like english was my 13th language). pic.twitter.com/oM8pnQKHRj

Well, to burst everyone's bubble, this started years ago, back in 2016 actually in an effort to make the boxes safer and less likely to have items stolen out of them.
Daily News reported back in 2016,
“We’re doing what we can to make these boxes safer,” Maher said.
One security method involves welding shut the drop-down door on walk-up mail boxes, and replacing it with a single slot so letters can be fed in one at a time.
“This helps prevent the fishing and we also have an anti-fishing device placed inside the boxes,” Maher said. “It is a ledge (type device) so that once a letter goes down in them it can’t come back up again.”
Some drive-up boxes have been fitted with red locking caps. Some double-box installations are fitted with a big red cover and a really big black lock.
The caps and covers are put on at the last pickup of the day and removed the following morning.
“We’re doing what we can to make these boxes safe, Maher said.
Tucker Carlson discussed the matter on his program to help make some sense of what's going on for those who don't know enough about it.
But as you see in Tucker's video, liberals are jumping on this wagon left and right because they're grasping onto anything they can to try and help Joe Biden win the election. Unfortunately for them, there is no hope in them being able to get the advantage on President Trump.

FALSE: Clinton Claims U.S. Economy Lags Behind Our Allies
Well this is awkward. Not only did photos emerge of former President Bill Clinton receiving a massage from an Epstein victim shortly before his Democratic National Convention speech, but he also butchered the speech with lies... and the fact checkers are on it.
Clinton said on Tuesday, “Our unemployment rate is more than twice as high as South Korea’s, two-and-a-half times the United Kingdom’s, more than three times Japan’s. Donald Trump says we’re leading the world — well, we are the only major industrial economy to have its unemployment rate tripled."
