Donald Trump Has ANOTHER Election Recount Meltdown, Claims WILD Conspiracy (IMAGES)

Now that Jill Stein has raised enough money to request election recounts in three battleground states, President-elect Donald Trump has taken the bait and begun issuing statements and admonishments.

He’s so riled up that anyone would dare question the legitimacy of the results, that he’s gone on a Twitter tirade over it. He may still be on it.

Jill Stein launched her recount efforts just a few days ago, and at the time of this writing, has already raised over $6.1 million of the $7 million estimated in order to pay for fees and expenses related to recounts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan — states that Donald Trump only won by small margins. According to The Guardian, Trump won by just 0.3 percent in Michigan, 1.2 percent in Pennsylvania, and 0.7 percent in Wisconsin. The request for a recount and its acceptance was filed and begun on Friday in Wisconsin, and is already showing tally errors.

Despite many hopes that the man who would be president would develop some filters after being elected, and would know better than to throw a childish temper tantrum on social media, it appears those hopes were dashed.

Even Donald Trump didn’t really think he was going to win on Nov. 8, and one would imagine that he’d be a bit more gracious about recount efforts. Especially when it appears that his rival, Democrat Hillary Clinton, actually received over two million more votes than he did.

However, Trump started his rant on Saturday night by complaining about the Democratic Party:

‘The Democrats, when they incorrectly thought they were going to win, asked that the election night tabulation be accepted. Not so anymore!’

In fact, the recount seemed to bother The Donald so much that he was up again at 4 a.m. to continue his complaints. It must have been a restless night in Trump Tower.

‘Hillary Clinton conceded the election when she called me just prior to the victory speech and after the results were in. Nothing will change’

‘Hillary’s debate answer on delay: “That is horrifying. That is not the way our democracy works. Been around for 240 years. We’ve had free –‘

‘and fair elections. We’ve accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them, and that is what must be expected of anyone standing on a -‘

‘during a general election. I, for one, am appalled that somebody that is the nominee of one of our two major parties would take that kind –‘

‘of position.” Then, separately she stated, “He said something truly horrifying … he refused to say that he would respect the results of –‘

‘this election. That is a direct threat to our democracy.” She then said, “We have to accept the results and look to the future, Donald –‘

‘Trump is going to be our President. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead.” So much time and money will be spent – same result! Sad’

But that early morning rant wasn’t enough. It continued to stick in his craw, and Trump continued his Twitter tirade into the afternoon. This time, he claimed that he would have won the popular vote, too, if it wasn’t for all those darn illegal votes. He also continued to insist that he could have won the popular vote if he had campaigned more in a few more populous states. Trump has claimed this before, referring to Florida, California, and New York. However, odds are that neither California nor New York would have swung for his racist B.S. no matter how much campaigning he had done in those states.

‘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’

‘It would have been much easier for me to win the so-called popular vote than the Electoral College in that I would only campaign in 3 or 4-states instead of the 15 states that I visited. I would have won even more easily and convincingly (but smaller states are forgotten)!’

 

Donald Trump himself said at the final presidential debate that he may not accept the results of the presidential election. Afterward, he clarified that he would only accept them if it appeared that there were no anomalies. He even joked that he would “totally accept the elections results” — if he won.

Time to dial back the hypocrisy. Considering that it’s already been discovered that there were more votes cast for Trump in one state than there were total votes cast, a recount seems reasonable. If the American people want to donate to have the results verified, then that too is the will of the people.

Otherwise, people might suspect he was afraid of the truth.
