Trump has spent the past several days crying about how millions of illegals fraudulently voted and subsequently rigged the election to help Hillary win the popular vote, but if he truly thought that was possible, you’d think he would welcome a recount to prove his
lie theory true. But no — he’s seriously freaking out about the idea and has now moved to block the recounts in Michigan, Wisconsin and, most recently, Pennsylvania — coincidentally, these are the three states that gave him the win. Very interesting, and possibly suspect?
The motion filed Thursday by Trump’s army of lawyers states:
Despite being no more than a blip on the electoral radar, Stein has now commandeered Pennsylvania’s electoral process, with an eye toward doing the same to the Electoral College. There is no evidence — or even an allegation — that any tampering with Pennsylvania’s voting systems actually occurred.”
After motions were filed to block recounts in Michigan earlier, Jill Stein’s camp waved Trump’s efforts off, calling them “outrageous.”
The recount in Michigan, which has been driven by an outpouring of grassroots support in the state — will go forward. The Michigan Board of State Canvassers and Director of Elections has been a model of professionalism in moving this recount forward in an efficient, transparent manner. Yet the Trump campaign’s cynical efforts to delay the recount and create unnecessary costs for taxpayers are shameful and outrageous.”
It’s likely that she feels just as strongly about this new development in Pennsylvania, especially now that she sees she has struck a serious nerve.
The margin of votes between Trump and Hillary in all 3 states has grown smaller and smaller as the days pass and is now less than 80,000 — again, that is counts from all 3 states combined! When the recounts proceed, and they likely will, since this is a grassroots project funded by donations, chances are that the margin will get even tighter.
Regardless of how this plays out, Trump is sending a clear message to the American people — he is very easily rattled and the fact that the entire world is watching this is really embarrassing.
