President Elect's 24 Hour Twitter Rampage Ends With False Attack of 'Serious Bias' by the Media Against Him
Rather than spending the long Thanksgiving weekend being thankful for a stunning Electoral College upset that handed him the White House, Donald Trump ended the holiday respite in tweetstorms that literally question the legitimacy of his impending ascendance to the Oval Office.
On Saturday night he attacked Jill Stein's campaign to recount the votes in the three states Trump narrowly won (assuming Michigan, which is leaning Trump but still isn't finished, doesn't flip) that could hand the White House to Clinton if just over 100,000 Trump votes in the right states get tossed.
On Sunday, he attacked the Clinton team for wanting to be present during the recount - which is both their right and their duty.
Then, later on Sunday, Trump exploded in rage, tweeting a stunning and clearly false lie:
"In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally," the president-elect wrongly claimed.
Not a single element of those 140 characters is true.
Donald Trump did not win the Electoral College in a landslide - hence his growing nervousness over the recount in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.
Donald Trump did not win the popular vote in a landslide - nor did he win the popular vote at all. Hillary Clinton did, and if the word "landslide" is to be used, she has more right to it than does Trump. 2.2 million votes and counting.
Donald Trump is a serial liar, and, apparently, a sore winner.
But all this brings us to his most recent tweet, Sunday evening's insane missive.
"Serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California - so why isn't the media reporting on this? Serious bias - big problem!"
Serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California - so why isn't the media reporting on this? Serious bias - big problem!â€” Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 28, 2016
Apparently, Trump jut can't stand the fact that he's won the presidency, and apparently he just doesn't know what to do with it.
Of course, there was no "serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California," and if there were, and incoming president would use his power to call for an investigation into that voter fraud, fix the problems by partnering with the Federal Elections Commission to protect the integrity of our free and fair elections, and prosecute those involved.
As much as we would like the media to discover everything that needs fixing, the federal government has both the tools and the power to act in areas the media does not.
THere's no reason anymore to continue trying to get inside Donald Trump's rotten mind and divine what makes him tick.
The facts are the facts:
Donald Trump appears to have has some serious mental health issues which result in him holding the nation hostage when they aren't controlled.
Donald Trump did not win by a landslide.
Donald Trump lost the popular vote, bigly.
There is no credible evidence of serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California.
