Donald Trump is not the first president to win the office by virtue of the Electoral College while losing what’s called the “popular vote.”
He is the first president, though, to keep yapping, yammering and blathering about the popular vote “loss.” He won’t give it a rest.
Uh, Mr. President? You won the damn election in 2016. The U.S. Constitution allows candidates to score enough Electoral College votes to win the election even if they fail to garner enough of the people’s actual votes to make it a clean sweep.
He won’t let go of the idiocy he keeps repeating that “illegal immigrants” cast votes for Hillary Clinton.
Good grief, dude. President Bush lost the popular vote in 2000 to then-Vice President Al Gore. It boiled down to counting those ballots in Florida. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled eventually that the ballot counting needed to stop. When it did end, Bush had 537 more votes than Gore had in Florida. He won the state’s electoral votes and, thus, Bush was elected president. It was done according to what the Constitution allows.
Did the 43rd president bitch and moan about losing the popular vote nationally to Al Gore? No! He took office and went to work immediately.
It’s too late for Trump to get to work now that he’s more than halfway through his term. He will keep griping about the alleged voter fraud. He won’t offer any evidence, or provide a shred of proof. He’ll just keep bloviating about it.
Donald Trump only validates the belief of many of us that political career is as fraudulent as his business career.
