TRUMP WON'T LET GO OF HIS LIE THAT 3 TO 5 MILLION ILLEGAL VOTES COST HIM THE POPULAR VOTE
Trump's still selling his gold-plated pile of swill, hoping more people will believe it:
He lost the popular vote because 3 to 5 million illegal aliens voted against him.
BLOTUS* offers not one shred of a scintilla of an iota of evidence to back up his claim. We just have to believe him. Trump is undermining and disrupting the very democracy he leads.
If he really believes this lie, then he needs to call for a full investigation right now because 3 to 5 MILLION FRAUDULENT VOTES is a MAJOR scandal and threat to our democracy and needs to be investigated immediately. If trump does not act on his accusations and call for Congressional hearings, then we know he's just peddling more bullsh*t. And he's a disgrace to our country.
Keep this in mind whenever trump makes a claim about anything:
Graham blasts Trump after latest voter fraud claim
"Trump surprised the top Republicans and Democrats in Congress on Monday when, during a dinner at the White House, he repeated his claim that millions of undocumented immigrants voted for Hillary Clinton -- allegedly depriving him of the popular vote.
"I wasn't there, but if the President of the United States is claiming that 3.5 million people voted illegally, that shakes confidence in our democracy — he needs to disclose why he believes that," Graham told CNN on Tuesday."
Presidential historian, Douglas Brinkley: Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian, said yesterday Trump is “off to the worst start of a presidency in a very long time,” and it’s worth appreciating why.
The Republican, unaccustomed to public service, running a large organization, or weighty responsibilities, simply lacks the maturity he now needs. Much has been made in recent months about the dangers of putting an amateur in the Oval Office, but those concerns tend to focus on problems associated with Trump’s ignorance of public policy and public institutions.
There’s a related angle that goes overlooked: political amateurs are also unaccustomed to scrutiny, criticisms, and the pressures of the international spotlight. When the amateur lacks a mature temperament, the problem is that much more acute.
New York’s Jon Chait concluded yesterday, “Oliver Wendell Holmes famously summed up Franklin Roosevelt as a second-class intellect but a first-class temperament. Trump has a third-class intellect and a third-class temperament.
The frightening surreality of what has happened to the United States has only begun to sink in.”
