|Donald Trump harried|
And here is another prime example of Donald Trump’s instability; he continues to be riled over the fact that Hillary Clinton is more than 2.3 million ahead of him in the popular vote. Instead of enjoying the fact that the Electoral College deemed him President–although that is currently in contention–and going on with the job of planning his presidency, he broods like some second grader who lost his crayons on the way to school. Here’s his tweet:
“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.”
To begin with, he didn’t win the Electoral College in a landslide (306 to 232). Barack Obama won in a landslide in 2008, 365 to McCain’s 173. And there is absolutely no evidence the 2016 popular vote was “illegal,” although Jill Stein has embarked on a crusade if there were mistakes made or anything intentional favoring Trump in her state recounts. In 2012 Trump made this statement:
“The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy.”
Then, a week after the election:
“The Electoral College is actually genius in that it brings all states, including the smaller ones, into play. Campaigning is much different!”
Unstable on the one hand and indecisive on the other. Excellent qualities for a president.
