Did Arizona’s Governor Just Hang Up on Trump While Certifying Biden’s Victory? (Video)

New president, who dis

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey’s phone starting ringing while he was certifying the state’s presidential election results on Monday morning, and his very unique ringtone appears to have identified the caller as Donald Trump.

Back in July, Ducey told reporters that he set his ringtone for calls from the White House to “Hail to the Chief” by composer James Sanderson so that he never misses a call from Trump or Vice President Mike Pence.

Now take a wild guess as to which song was playing before Ducey quickly silenced it in the middle of certifying Joe Biden’s victory on Monday.

In the video below, posted to Twitter by Phoenix-based NBC 12 News reporter Brahm Resnik, Ducey reaches into his jacket pocket and quickly silences his phone as it plays “Hail to the Chief,” which can be heard very faintly at around the 7-second mark.

Trump has been very vocal about his baseless claims that the election was “rigged” and his false accusations of voter fraud — despite the fact that even his own lawyers have disagreed with the term “fraud” in court. Trump has applied enormous pressure to Republican governors in an effort to convince them to overturn the election results in their states, and when those governors refused to do so, Trump has attacked them.

It’s part of a pressure campaign that also included Trump inviting Republican lawmakers to the White House from the swing state of Michigan, presumably with the intent of convincing them to flip the vote in his favor despite his loss to Biden by a significant margin. Fortunately for the country, Trump was unsuccessful and Michigan has since certified Biden’s win in the state.
