Arizona's Republican governor dunked on Trump after the president criticized him for certifying that the state voted for Biden
  • Arizona's Republican governor Doug Ducey has defended his state's election procedures after President Donald Trump singled him out, without evidence, for alleged corruption.
  • Ducey certified Arizona's election result in President-elect Joe Biden's favor on Monday, enraging the president.
  • Trump phoned in to Arizona's election hearings on Monday, alleging "horrible fraud" on Ducey's part, and then took his anger to Twitter.
  • Ducey then tweeted a thread outlining his pride in the state's election procedures and his commitment to the law.
  • Trump has hit out several times at GOP figures whom he deemed insufficiently loyal as he continues to challenge the election.
Trump criticized Ducey early by calling in to the hearing itself and, provoking boos from supporters, saying without evidence that Ducey had shown "such corruption, such horrible fraud."
