It would seem that the fact that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by 2 million votes and counting and the recount of votes in Wisconsin has gotten under the aging orange thin skin of the bad tempered liar-elect. Over the weekend after gorging himself on dishes named after himself at his resort in Florida, he took to Twitter spewing another litany of lies that began with this:
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

First, he only won the EC with 302 votes, only 32 votes more than he needed. Considering President Barack Obama won with 365 and 332 in 2008 and 2012, 302 is hardly a “landslide.” And, btw, the EC hasn’t voted yet.
On the prevaricator-elect’s claim that millions of people voted illegally, where is the evidence? Since he only reads web cites that promote conspiracy theories, this lie most likely came from Alex Jones’ InfoWars (No link. You all know how to find it.)
What set off this latest tirade was Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein’s fund raising for recounts in three states where the bad comb-over yapping yam won by narrow margins and questions about voting machine and count integrity. As of today, the fund has raised $6.3 million of the $7 million goal. Wisconsin has agreed to the recount and the paperwork has been filed in Pennsylvania. The Michigan request must be filed by Wednesday.
Many think that this is a futile waste of time that won’t change the outcome and just a ploy for Dr. Stein to garner attention. Maybe. Others believe that, no matter the outcome of these recounts, it is more important that the American people be assured of the integrity of our voting system. The angry orange buffoon has inadvertently made the best argument for a recount wherever there is a question. Maybe someone on his staff should take that unsecured phone away from him before it gets hacked.
