The Trump campaign has set up a hotline to report any ‘fraudulent activity’ from the election, but is instead receiving an abundance of prank calls from social media users.
It’s been a rough week for Donald Trump. After losing the election to Joe Biden last Friday he has since insisted that he actually won based on ‘legal votes’ and has claimed his victory was ‘stolen from him’. His campaign team subsequently set up a hotline for anyone to come forward with information on electoral malpractice.
Instead, it seems that the hotline is being overwhelmed with prank calls from TikTok users, famous comedians, and ‘lefty teenagers’ as reporters on Twitter have described them. Some are sending explicit adult images while others are taunting phone line operators with Joe Biden’s win.

ABC reported that Trump’s campaign team has described it as a ‘nightmare’. One person apparently called in to report that an ‘obese turtle had rolled onto its back in the sun’, a reference to Anderson Cooper’s comments on the US president several days ago on CNN.
