The Republican National Committee wrote on Twitter Wednesday that it “will do everything it can to make sure Americans can have confidence in our elections.”

But the claim ― an attack on Democratic attempts to reform voting rights ― failed to get the vote of many social media users, who reminded the GOP of its gaslighting, gerrymandering, voter suppression and promotion of ex-President Donald Trump’s conspiracy theory that the 2020 election was stolen from him.

The RNC will do everything it can to make sure Americans can have confidence in our elections. "Democrats are attempting an egregious power grab through H.R. 1 that will fundamentally alter our entire election system.”—@GOPChairwoman

“It must be Opposite Day,” one person snarked.

Added another: “Party of sedition and minority rule says what?”

Step #1 stop lying to the people. step 2: stop supporting those who lied by gaslighting the people at every opportunity.

Behavior since the last elections says otherwise. Particularly all of the failed lawsuits.

Translate "Americans" for me, please.

Let’s talk voter suppression

You mean by making it easier for minorities to vote?

You guys literally have free cover to a baseless conspiracy theory meant to undermine an election for no reason other than your candidate lost. Sit down.

The RNC literally spent months repeating the lie that the 2020 election was rigged.

When create the doubt with no evidence, you can hardly be said to be protecting Americans from anything #GOP. How about those 550,948 Americans you’ve killed during Covid with your lies? You should be ashamed.

Get a better platform so maybe you can win without gerrymandering and voter suppression.

@GOP "Remember the time President Trump told his supporters to storm the Capitol building while Congress was in session counting votes in a free and fair election – an unprecedented act of domestic terrorism?That wasn't even 3 months ago." ~AO @GOP egregious power grab/treason
