Isn’t it ironic that in the Republican Primaries at the first debate the moderator asked all the candidates if they would support the winner and not form a third party and Trump reluctantly did so? And he was severely criticized by his peers for reluctantly doing so. So what happened? Trump won and some of those who pledged to support the nominee refused to do so.
Then in the general election, Trump was asked if he would support the outcome of the election and he said he would look at it when it’s over and tell us then. Hillary hands down said she would support the winner – because she thought that there was no way she could lose – and lambasted Trump for not automatically doing so. And the rest of the Democrats bashed Trump for not giving up his right to contest an election. Trump wanted to see how much voter fraud had influenced the election. Now the I’ll-support-the-winner Hillary is contesting the election for no good reason.
Honestly, the Democrats will win by any means necessary. The Left never gives up even when it loses. And if they still can’t win they can embarrass you. They can make you look illegitimate which is what they are trying to do with Trump.
One last tidbit. Michigan has already been recounted and Trump won twice. That’s why it took so long for Michigan to declare a winner. Now they may recount it for a second time.
The Democrats’ real strategy in launching recounts
The recount in Wisconsin, and the coming ones in Michigan and Pennsylvania will not change the outcomes in any of the states. No recount ever changes thousands of votes. I do not think that is the purpose.
The recounts, if done by hand, which can be demanded, may take longer than the last day for completing the official counts in a state and directing Electoral College voters. If all 3 states miss the deadline, Trump is at 260, Hillary at 232. No one hits 270.
Then this goes to Congress, where the House voting 1 vote per state elects Trump, and Senate selects pence. This would be first time this happened since 1824, but in that case, John Quincy Adams won in the House, though he had fewer electoral college votes than Andrew Jackson.
If this goes to the US House and Senate, and the result is the same as result from the Electoral College without the recounts, why do it? The answer is to make Trump seem even more illegitimate, that he did not win the popular vote (he lost by over 2.1 million), he did not win the Electoral College (did not reach 270), and was elected by being inserted into the presidency by members of his own party in Congress.
What the Democrats are trying to do here is gum up the works so that there is no new President authenticated at inauguration time. Then they will push to have Obama stay in the Oval Office until it is all sorted out – the mess they deliberately created so that they could inject chaos into the system and make Trump look illegitimate.
They will drag it out as long as they can. Meanwhile, Obama will keep the Southern Border wide open so that as many illegals as possible can flood into the U.S.A.
