I hear this over and over again, by conservatives and liberals alike. By commentators and pundits of all stripes on the infotainment programs. Where did this wrong and phony notion come from? Is part of it conceding Trump’s win in order to be able to ask other questions……the price of admission to a dialogue? Wimpy behavior?
I for one cringe every time I hear this shallow and false notion tossed out as a prelude to any statement or question. It’s bullshit. Most often it prefaces discussions with Trump supporters by reporters or commentators.
This guy did not win anything fair and square, unless you consider deception, lies and false promises to be the norm for persuading a stressed electorate that you are their savior, when in fact virtually everything you do after the election proves the deceit.
Let’s take it back to PRIOR to the election. All of this BS behavior and con man campaign did affect the election outcome. The media owns a big piece of the problem by covering the Trump circus as a reality show, rather than a campaign for the presidency.
The lies and exaggerations about Clinton affected the campaign. The selective hacking and release of information from the DNC affected people’s attitudes. The Russian manipulation of social media by thousands of fake Facebook accounts and other resources to spread fake stories about Clinton. The National Inquirer targeted Clinton at every grocery store checkout line as a personal favor to Trump, who is a buddy of the owner. She had cancer, was almost on her deathbed, was an alien from outer space. She was supposedly running a child slavery sex ring out of a DC pizza parlor.
And the above are probably only the tip of the iceberg. Crosscheck efforts to knock minorities off of the voting rolls in key states prevented votes from being cast in the first place. That is voting fraud on a mass scale and these were to favor Trump. Eliminating Souls to the Polls voting hours is manipulation. Putting few and crappy polls in minority areas is manipulation. Make no mistake, Trump got a lot of help from a lot of Republican officials and politicians to tilt the table his way. Many of them still struggle to cover his tracks on a daily basis by pretending to be deaf or blind to disgusting behavior.
And the bogus congressional Republican controlled committees investigating Bengazi and other server BS went on ad nauseum, pounding away at phony, exaggerated, negative Clinton messages.
So let’s not be so naïve about these seemingly simplistic and false statements that “no one is saying that that Trump didn’t fairly win the election.” Simplistic notions equating winning fairly to bogus votes alone are pathetic.
HE DIDN’T! PERIOD! We should all say it and call anyone out who tosses this dead fish into a conversation.
There are more revelations in the works. The bloodhounds are on the scent.
