It is one thing to say several types of foolishness when he was running for office and a completely different thing to make Claims Without Foundation when President-elect. Since our Democracy doesn’t have a formal acceptance of monarchy, the President must do both. When the office of the Presidency is immersed in speaking layers of shit and by making comments appropriate for the contents of an outhouse, the office of the Presidency is diminished.
“Trump claims he would’ve beaten Clinton in the popular vote had it not for “the millions of people who voted illegally.” (Joe Raedle/Reuters)”
“President-elect Donald Trump, who defeated Hillary Clinton by winning the Electoral College in the election earlier this month, claimed Sunday that he would’ve beaten her in the popular vote too if not for “the millions of people who voted illegally.”
“It’s remarkable and unprecedented for a victorious presidential candidate to claim widespread voter fraud. There is no evidence to indicate that there was a significant number of people, let alone millions, who voted illegally in the election on Nov. 8.” https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-issues-stunning-claim-that-millions-voted-illegally-205918708.html
Americans need jobs. All Americans. And Healthcare and at least the semblance of a retirement/pension system. And Research in a myriad of sciences. And climate control so we don’t kill our children and grandchildren. They need roads to be improved and refurbished and for State services to be fortified by additional workers so that a visit to something like the DMV is not an all day trial.
Republicans don’t believe in at least some of these services. I get that. What none of us need is a President that increases disillusionment by making spurious comments. Getting the things done that need to be done is hard work. Not contributing to our divisions by making unproven accusations makes the ability to complete that hard work so much harder.
“Donald Trump on Sunday used the platform of the presidency to peddle a fringe conspiracy theory to justify his loss of the popular vote, claiming without evidence that millions of people voted illegally Nov. 8.”
“Trump’s tweets marked an unprecedented rebuke of the U.S. electoral system by a president-elect and were met with immediate condemnation from voting experts and others. And they offered a troubling indication that Trump’s ascension to the highest political office in the United States may not alter his penchant for repeating unproven conspiracies perpetuated by the far-right.” http://www.politico.com/story/2016/11/trump-illegal-voting-clinton-231860
