Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “CNN's Jim Acosta Says Trump's Rally Comment 'Gave Away The Big Lie'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

CNN host Jim Acosta on Sunday highlighted how former President Donald Trump openly admitted to one key purpose of his ongoing election lies: attention.

At a rally in Des Moines, Iowa, on Saturday, while heavily teasing a 2024 run, Trump regurgitated his “stolen election” lie, telling supporters that he never conceded and that President Joe Biden “didn’t get elected.”

“It’s the single biggest issue, the issue that gets the most pull, the most respect, the biggest cheers is talking about the election fraud of the 2020 presidential election. Nobody’s ever seen anything like it,” he said.

“He is admitting that his election lies are ego juice. Just there to pump up the crowd, the very stuff that fueled the insurrection. And by now, we know he’ll take those crocodile tears ― the big lie is the big cry, of course, as we said before ― all the way to the bank and perhaps to the 2024 election.”

Trump has aggressively fundraised and maintained significant influence over the GOP since losing last year’s election, all while heavily promoting false claims that it was rigged against him, allowing him to build up a war chest of tens of millions of dollars.
