The recount shenanigans from the liberals just took a bizarre turn. Folks, you simply can’t make this stuff up.It’s been Green Party candidate Jill Stein at the forefront of the efforts to lead a recount, having raised millions of dollars in key swing states that tilted the election in Donald Trump’s favor. Considering how much Stein criticized Hillary Clinton throughout the campaign, it seemed like a bizarre move. Was she aiming for a recount because she found Hillary at least preferable to Trump?
Of course not. She wanted a recount because it gave her something to raise money for. The amount of money she claims to need for the recount only continues to rise, and anything not used will be at the disposal of the Green Party for future recruitment and failed campaigns.
And here’s another twist: after the Clinton campaign said they’d join the recount efforts (which even they think will be fruitless), they got slammed not just by Donald Trump, but…wait for it…Stein as well!Get a load of these (un)love notes:
Why would Hillary Clinton—who conceded the election to Donald Trump—want #Recount2016? You cannot be on-again, off-again about democracy.

Why would Hillary Clinton—who holds "public" and "private" positions—want to engage in something as transparent as #Recount2016?— Dr. Jill Stein (@DrJillStein) November 26, 2016
She’s managed to dupe Hillary supporters into sending her millions, and she isn’t even doing any of this to help Hillary – she’s doing it to enrich herself. Given that Stein is now playing politics for her own monetary benefit, it’s evident that she at least learned how to do one thing from the Clintons.[Note: This post was written by Matt Palumbo.
