In three viral videos, a staunch Trump supporter and TikTok user tells the platform that Trump won the election because he “broke the algorithm.”

The trio of videos was posted by performance artist and anti-Trump troll, @special_head, and have combined to garner over 1 million views. The woman in the video is Trump-dripped from head to toe, complete with a flag and a Captain America shield covered in the president's name and image.

TikTok put "Get info" disclaimers on the videos. But, as the TikTok stan basically said, perhaps there was more to the election results and we didn't keep our third eye open...

"Trump won the second all these swing states decided to stop counting votes," she states in the video, based on nothing factual.

"We broke the algorithm; because see how algorithms work is because if they set the algorithm and Trump hits like 80% of one particular state, the algorithm can stop that. But what happened is so many started pouring in for Trump that it broke the algorithm, so they had to stop for the night."

In part two, the woman claims that Newsmax had committed to researching the election results, incorrectly suggesting Trump had actually flipped California somehow.

Of course, Newsmax has been the unabashed, propagandized counter, and Trump's favorite, over Fox News. 

In the third part, she claims Trump is the "last hope."

It appears as Trump won't be the last of anything. There's no evidence he "broke the algorithm" and that the country will press on just fine, without his sage guidance after all.
