Trump Supporters Now Making Dumbest Argument to Defend Popular Vote Loss

Our Zack Fink reports from Albany where former President Bill Clinton was one of New York's 29 electors who cast their losing ballot for Hillary Clinton.

In their Tuesday New York Times off-lead "news analysis", reporters Jonathan Martin and Michael Wines tried to keep anti-Trump hope alive in "Trump's Win, But Little Else, Is Now Settled - A Vast Divide Persists After the Electors Vote".

Having clearly read President Clinton's remarks, Trump took to his Twitter on December 20 to contest the former president's version of events, CNN reports.

However not to be outdone, Clinton then tweeted back stating: " "Here's one thing @realDonaldTrump and I can agree on - I called him after the election".

Christmas is coming, but Donald Trump still has a lot to say about November's election. "Why this insecurity about the legitimacy of the win?" The Electoral College gave Trump the win despite losing the popular vote to Clinton by almost two percentage points.

"We respectfully urge President-elect Donald Trump and Attorney General-designate Jeff Sessions to gather all appropriate evidence and submit it to the grand jury to make the potential decision about the Clintons' potential indictment".

More than two decades later, Clinton blamed the same group for Hillary Clinton's loss to Donald Trump.

With liberals determined to confront the president-elect and Mr. Trump continuing to scorn his critics while denying intelligence officials' assessment that Russian Federation was responsible for hacking Democrats, the divisions so stark during this year's campaign are on a course to grow worse. Hillary Clinton received 718,322 votes in the state's most populous county to just 216,339 for Trump.

She got 227 to Trump's 304. Will the United States work as a corporation now that a media and business tycoon is entering the White House, one may never know.

"Listen, this is somebody who's very scripted", Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said of Clinton on Fox News Radio's "Hemmer Time" Wednesday.

So, it is with this column that I will renew an idea that I first raised as a 16-year-old high school junior when I participated in the American Legion Oratorical Contest: It is time to abolish the Electoral College.

On Monday, four presidential electors proved that their word and promise do not matter.

The Constitution gets it wrong again: We are now in the midst of widespread anguish over the imaginary popular vote.

"I have been working on that messaging for 20 years, and couldn't get the most pro-life people you've ever met [to deliver it]", she said.

Some of the lingering concerns about Election Day (for example, about a foreign power meddling in US elections) are real.

On April 8, 1995, President Clinton addressed the California Democratic Party in Sacramento, speaking about the economy and race issues. And Mr. Trump lost one other Texas elector to Libertarian Ron Paul.

Hundreds of protesters gathered at the Capitol ahead of the vote, many carrying signs, including those that that read "Not My President" and "Love Trumps Hate". Bob Dole, receiving 379 electoral votes. "We do not accept Russian interference in our election", Pelosi announced, the electors applauding in agreement.
