Remember when Donald Trump hinted that he wouldn’t accept the results of the election unless he won, to which Hillary Clinton replied that his statements were “frightening” and a “threat to Democracy”?
Yeah, that was hilarious. In an ironic twist, it’s now her joining efforts for an election recount. It all began when Green Party candidate Jill Stein raised millions for a recount effort, which would only aim for a recount in key swing States that Hillary lost (and ZERO States that Trump won, of course). The Clinton campaign decided to get on board, even though various members of the Clinton campaign acknowledge that there’s no evidence of interference in the election whatsoever.
Personally, I think the whole recount is just to line the pockets of Stein and the Green Party, as Stein publicly attacked Hillary after her campaign announced it was on board with the recount. It’s a truly bizarre chain of events that I can’t explain any other way.
Meanwhile, Trump’s campaign is turning up the heat on Hillary, blasting her for daring to challenge the results of an election they were once attacked for daring to question. As Yes Im Right reported:
However, when this news broke, KellyAnne Conway, Donald Trump’s campaign manager made it clear that the Trump Presidency isn’t scared of some crooked recount, and she shut down the Trump haters in epic form.
“What a pack of sore losers,” Conway said. “After asking Mr. Trump and his team a million times on the trail, ‘Will HE accept the election results?’ it turns out Team Hillary and their new BFF Jill Stein can’t accept reality.”
The only inaccuracy in that statement may be the “BFF” claim, as previously mentioned, Stein made it clear Saturday that she wasn’t happy with the Clinton campaign joining her attention-seeking efforts.
How will this all end? I believe we all member that Trump promised we’d win so much that we’d be tired of winning. Considering the 99.99% chance this recount has no effect on the election, Trump will have already won twice when its over! I suppose that counts as fulfilling a campaign promise.
