NervousÂ President-Elect Is Fighting Against Jill Stein's Recount
An increasingly unhinged Donald Trump, appearing to be growing more and more nervous by the minute about the recount of Wisconsin and possibly other states, has now spent the past 24 hours or so on Twitter attacking both Hillary Clinton and Jill Stein, and calling the Green Party-funded investigation into possible voting abnormalities "ridiculous" and a "scam."
Minutes ago the president-elect launched into yet another tweetstorm, by extension attacking possibly hundreds of election officials and even Republican Governors and Secretaries of State, claimingÂ that "millions" of people voted "illegally" â€“Â and apparently, all of them voted for Hillary Clinton.
Trump, who won the Electoral College vote but is currently losing the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by well over 2.2 million votes, with many more ballots, especiallyÂ in California yet to be counted, actually claimed that he won the popular vote too:
In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegallyâ€” Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 27, 2016
That of course is a bald-faced lie, a lie so divisive and so disingenuous â€“Â not to mention damaging to our nation's institutions â€“Â it boggles the mind.Â
No, he did not win the Electoral College vote in a "landslide," and no, he did not win the popular vote, and no, there were not "millions of people who voted illegally." Period.
It would have been much easier for me to win the so-called popular vote than the Electoral College in that I would only campaign in 3 or 4--â€” Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 27, 2016
states instead of the 15 states that I visited. I would have won even more easily and convincingly (but smaller states are forgotten)!â€” Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 27, 2016
Trump of course has zero proof that millions of people voted illegally, but, if it were true, why wouldn't he support the recounts? Wouldn't he want to prove his assertions correct? Wouldn't he want a full investigation? Wouldn't he want to show people just how "popular" he is?
Curious too, as an aside, that Trump admits he only campaigned in 15 states, but that is the least of the issues at hand.
We now have an incoming and soon-to-be commander-in-chief who is literally â€“ and fraudulently â€“Â claiming millions of people voted illegally.
What should we expect him to do about this?
Just how safe are our state-run elections from this fascisticÂ paranoid soon-to-be leader of the free world?
