Oh, Just Deduct Those Millions of People.

The liar continues to lie. For people who are interested in the truth, Think Progress has the full story.

Donald Trump presented no evidence to support his outlandish claim, and that’s because none exists. There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud in this or any presidential election, and certainly not on the order of “millions of people.” One of the only documented cases of actual voter fraud in this election came when a Trump supporter tried to vote for him twice.

Hillary Clinton’s lead in the popular vote has grown significantly since Election Day as large states like California continue to tally their votes. Her margin of victory now stands at more than two million votes, by far the largest gap by a presidential candidate who lost the election.

Trump supporters have pointed to fake news websites like InfoWars, which claimed that Clinton’s popular vote win was the result of three million illegal votes by undocumented immigrants and dead people. During the campaign, Trump himself repeatedly tweeted memes and fake stories from white supremacist websites as fact.

My previous posts on fake news, especially on facebook: one, two, three. A recent post on the Facebook Fake News problem.

    Everybody knows all proper Amurricans vote Republican. Only illegal, illicit, illegitimate and deceased voters vote for Anybody Else. Therefore, all those not-Trump votes don’t count. Quit Egg something something some foreign words or other.

    I’m afraid this is prelude to massive voter suppression efforts. Welcome to the American Reich. (spits)

    Yes, if we deduct all the people who didn’t vote for Trump then everybody voted for Trump.

    “Illegals”: People I think shouldn’t be allowed to vote on accounts of them not voting for me.

    I’m afraid this is prelude to massive voter suppression efforts.

    As I said before: If the decent people in the USA want to be able to stop this then voter registration must be one of the main efforts. Again. Mississippi Burning and Selma and all that stuff. Again.
