Fox News has been ridiculed over a bizarre interview with a disguised woman, who claimed that the Biden campaign committed voter fraud outside of a Nevada polling station.

On Tuesday, Fox News’ Laura Ingraham interviewed a woman who claimed that she saw the Biden campaign committing voter fraud in broad daylight in Nevada. Her claims have not been substantiated or repeated by anyone else at the Nevada polling place.

The woman’s identity was concealed for her “own safety”, as her voice was disguised and her body and face were hidden in silhouette throughout the conversation.

Before the interview started, Ingraham said: “We are going to be concealing her identity, even disguising her voice over her own safety concerns.”

The host then asked the anonymous woman about “something suspicious” she claimed she had seen outside of a Nevada polling station, where she said she worked during the election.

The woman said that she went out for her lunch break wearing her “polling uniform”. Workers at polling centres and vote-counting centres do not generally wear uniforms.

She said that as she walked towards the official van for the Joe Biden and Kamala Harris campaign, she saw two people filling in multiple ballots in broad daylight outside of the polling centre.

The woman claimed that she walked close to the van for her whole lunch break and witnessed them continuing to “mark ballots” and putting them in white envelopes. She did not provide any photographic evidence to back up her claims.

After the bizarre interview aired, the network was mocked by social media users over the claims made by the woman.

Twitter user @CharlesJhallory asked: “You seriously think they would make it that obvious? Seriously?”

While @TaylorsKidney commented: “But where is the evidence? Where is the proof? These are all just rumours.”

User @NycStormChaser wrote: “Let me get this straight. Someone from the Biden campaign had a bus that said Biden/Harris on it, stood outside of it and committed voter fraud in plain sight of the public?” and posted a gif of a woman spitting out a drink while laughing.

@argmntdreality joked: “When I’m doing fraud, I always do it standing next to very conspicuous vehicles in dark parking lots. Some cower indoors with good lighting and a cup of coffee, out of the view of others, but that’s just not how real fraud should be done.”

Donald Trump has repeatedly falsely claimed that voter fraud took place across several swing states, following Joe Biden’s victory in last week’s presidential election.

The Trump campaign issued lawsuits in multiple states, but there is no evidence to back up the claims of voter fraud.

Speaking about Mr Trump’s refusal to concede the election on Tuesday, Mr Biden said: “I just think it’s an embarrassment, quite frankly.”
