An amazing clip which I somehow missed yesterday. You’ll need to turn the sound on your computer way up to hear it (at least I did) but that is indeed “Hail to the Chief” playing when Ducey’s phone rings. And it happens to be true — Ducey *did* say publicly in July that he changed his ringtone to HTTC to let him know when a call was coming from the White House.
HE'LL GET BACK TO YOU Back in July, Gov. Ducey said he changed his White House ringtone to "Hail to The Chief" so he wouldn't miss a call from Trump/Pence. Guess who called while Ducey was certifying Arizona's election? (7 secs in) pic.twitter.com/bzBGpfSIDf

Trump or some aide (Mark Meadows?) was probably watching the certification on a cable feed and thought it’d be worth trying to dial up Ducey at the last second and threaten him before he signed off. He may have sent the president to voicemail!
