While President-elect Joe Biden is working on his transition process before moving into the White House, President Donald Trump is occupied on social media still discussing the “election hoax”. Trump yet again took to Twitter to prove that the general election was rigged but received a rather unexpected response from fellow Republican Paul Mitchell, who is trending on Twitter after telling Trump to #stopthestupid.

What prompted Mitchell's reaction was a tweet shared by Trump, saying, "We have some big things happening in our various litigations on the Election Hoax. Everybody knows it was Rigged. They know Biden didn’t get more votes from the Black community than Obama, & certainly didn’t get 80,000,000 votes. Look what happened in Detroit, Philadelphia, plus!"

Mitchell shared Trump's above tweet and blatantly called out the president for his arguments that lack "factual basis". He tweeted, "Oh my God. [email protected] Please for the sake of our Nation please drop these arguments without evidence or factual basis. #stopthestupid". 



 

In no time, #stopthestupid widely circulated on Twitter as more and more people began sharing Mitchell's tweet directed at Trump. 

Who is Paul Mitchell?

Paul Mitchell from Michigan is a member of the Republican Party. He currently serves as the US Representative for Michigan's 10th congressional district. He ran for the United States House of Representatives in Michigan's 4th congressional district in 2014 but lost to John Moolenaar. He won the primary in 2015 run for the House of Representatives in Michigan's 10th congressional district defeating Phil Pavlov and Alan Sanborn. He's been a member of the Republican Study Committee. Mitchell is also said to be one of the richest members of Congress with an alleged net worth of $37.7 million.

With respect to his opinion of Trump's infamous tweets, this isn't the first time something that Trump said has caught the Congressman's attention. In 2019, Mitchell, along with many other Republicans, slammed Trump for saying some Democrat Congresswomen need to "go back". An irked Mitchell had commented, "@RealDonaldTrump, we must be better than comments like these. I share the political frustrations with some members of the other party, but these comments are beneath leaders."



 

The majority of people on social media are seen seconding Mitchell's tweet about the need to "stop" Trump's "stupidity". One tweeted, "Did the United States really just trend with the hashtag #stopthestupid? Can't tell whether other countries are laughing at us or applauding for finally realizing our stupidity." Adding to that one said, "Then why on earth are we still hearing about fraudulent votes? If there is no evidence presented and it’s been 39 days can we all agree that this guy has dementia? #stopthestupid" Another tweeted, "#stopthestupid is my new favorite hashtag. I've been saying "fight ignorance" for years but I'm thinking it's time for a change. :) @Fact_Check_Er". Yet another said, "If the Trump legal team had evidence they would have presented it in court. They haven't presented ANYTHING. They have lost 39 out of 40 cases. And held a press conference at Four Seasons Total Landscaping. #StoptheStupid."
