Comedian Samantha Bee mocked President TrumpDonald John TrumpTeachers union launches 0K ad buy calling for education funding in relief bill FDA head pledges 'we will not cut corners' on coronavirus vaccine Let our values drive COVID-19 liability protection MORE on Wednesday over his claim that some voters would cast multiple ballots by using disguises to enter polling places several times.

Posting a picture of herself covered in a face mask reminiscent of the Grinch, Bee joked on Twitter that she was heading to polls to cast one last vote in last week's midterm elections.

Her tweet came hours after an interview Trump gave to The Daily Caller in which he asserted to the conservative news outlet that Republicans often don't win elections because of "potentially illegal votes," and falsely claimed once again that Americans require ID to purchase groceries.

"Sometimes they go to their car, put on a different hat, put on a different shirt, come in and vote again. Nobody takes anything. It’s really a disgrace what’s going on," Trump said.

“If you buy a box of cereal — you have a voter ID,” he added in the interview. “They try to shame everybody by calling them racist, or calling them something, anything they can think of, when you say you want voter ID. But voter ID is a very important thing.”

In the same interview, Trump took aim at Broward County elections supervisor Brenda Snipes amid ongoing recounts in Florida's Senate and gubernatorial elections.

"She should have been removed — I think she should have been removed in the middle of this mix-up," the president said, adding: "You look at her past, she’s a disaster."

Democrats and Republican have battled for days over recounts in Florida's elections, which have remained too close to call since Election Day last week. Trump and Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R), the GOP candidate in the state's uncalled Senate election, have asserted without evidence that rampant fraud is occurring in the district amid the recount process.
