Former Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has a well established reputation for being a bit of a fibber, to put it kindly.Recently, she’s flip-flopped on her word to accept the results of the election and has joined the demand for a recount of several blue states Trump miraculously managed to flip red.
What’s ironic is that Hillary’s concerned with things being “rigged,” yet, a new report shows she’s looking for “volunteers” to help with the recount.
Surely the folks she’s looking for are objective folks who care about preserving the integrity of our electoral system, right?
According to the New York Post, New pages have been set up on HillaryClinton.com for those eager to assist the retally effort in Michigan and Wisconsin.“Help with the Michigan recount,” one page urges. “Let us know if you want to get involved.”
The page features a sign-up form — but offers no other details, other than: “Someone from the team will be in touch.”
“Paid for by Hillary for America, a grassroots campaign of 3 million donors committed to electing Hillary Clinton (and keeping Donald Trump out of the White House),” reads the disclosure at the bottom of the page.A lawyer for the Clinton campaign announced last week that they’d be joining Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s effort to get a recount of the close vote in Michigan.
Michigan state officials certified earlier this week that Trump won the state by a narrow 10,704-ballot margin, receiving 47.6 percent of the vote to Hillary Clinton’s 47.4 percent.Stein received 51,463 ballots in Michigan, 1.1 percent of the vote cast there.
Clinton has also posted similar pages in Wisconsin, but come now, there’s no way she’s actually trying to overturn the results of the election, is she?
It certainly seems like that’s the case. Then again, maybe it’s all about pocketing some of the cash being raised to help cover the cost of the recounts? Bit of both?
Gee, remember that time Clinton told her supporters to give The Donald a chance? My how things have changed.
via Fox News:
“This is not the outcome we wanted or we worked so hard for, and I’m sorry we did not win this election … but I feel pride and gratitude for this wonderful campaign that we built together,” Clinton told supporters Wednesday in New York City.
She said “this loss hurts,” but said her campaign “was never about one person or even one election.”
“We must accept this result, and then look to the future,” Clinton said. “Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead.”
So much for accepting the results, huh?
It’s well past time for the left to suck it up, accept their defeat, and entertain the idea that maybe, just maybe, the reason folks didn’t vote Democrat is because they want something different, something that actually works?
