Donald Trump twitter response to election recount is pure genius
Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania
Jill Stein’s push for a presidential recount unlikely to change Trump’s victory.
If it’s not going to change anything why bother then?
Well according to Jill, she is concerned about the hacking of election machines, which by the way doesn’t make 100% complete sense because in Michigan the votes are all cast by hand, machines are not used in the state.
In all reality I suspect that Jill is simply trying to prove that Hillary did in fact win the popular vote, or more rather that Donald did not, which doesn’t matter because the Sunday before the election, I published a piece about presidents who made it into the oval office without the benefit of having the popular vote.
This move has really made an already fed-up nation even those that are anti-Trump, even more fed-up. People are ready to just move on.
Hillary Clinton’s team even hopped right onto the bandwagon here although they were very careful not to make it appear that Hillary was somehow going back on her word, she has after all already conceded that Donald Trump won the election.
What happened to losing gracefully?
Many suspect that in the end by the time it’s all said and done Hillary will garner more of the popular vote but still not near enough to even remotely put a dent in the sheer numbers that Trump has.
You win some and you lose some, our nation really needs to get over the mentality of you get a trophy just for participation.
What happened to winning gracefully?
Trump as per usual ran to rant on twitter, one of the tweets stated “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”
He later tweeted “Serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California – so why isn’t the media reporting on this? Serious bias – big problem!”
Saying something along the lines of “I am confident the recounts are not going to change the outcome, even Jill Stein herself admits she doubts the recounts will change the outcome.” And leaving it at that would have more than sufficed according to many.
But….why play nice guy when you have the opportunity to cut the head right off of the snake?
You do have to give Donald Trump a little credit here, rather than wait this one out and allow for the recounts which will drag on for weeks, to trump up (no pun intended) suspicions galore, he in turn cut the head off of the snake in a rather creative way.
He was able to grab headlines, thus overshadowing the recount headlines and forced the media to focus on the fact that the recounts most likely are in fact, not going to change anything but more importantly, his outrageous tweets.
He effectively took control over casting doubt over his numbers and win away from the mainstream media.
You have to love that.
The mainstream media has said that he has made unfounded and outrageous claims, made him out to be a complete idiot, a fool, a poor choice as our leader, some have said that his comments are leaving many to wonder “if he isn’t in over his head” and I forget who it was now that had a headline that said he was paranoid, some headlines hinted at him quoting fake news with his tweets…
While what he said may have “seemed” outrageous, the truth is, it was rather pure genius on his part and I am sure quite planned that way.
Some of his past rhetoric has cost him support and he has some ground to make up in order to smooth some of what he has said over during his campaign days.
While I do not always agree with Donald Trump, his voter fraud tweets from this past weekend go down as a win in my book.
I do believe without a doubt that mainstream media got a little bit owned by Donald Trump this past weekend.
