There is no doubt that Secretary Hillary Clinton is enjoying the moment. Donald Trump tried to have “his” people throw her in jail, along with President-elect Joe Biden, and President Barack Obama, too. The Republicans grilled her in committee hearings like pork at a Hawaiian luau for 11 hours straight. Trump stalked her on the debate stage and brought her husband’s alleged mistresses along for good measure. Now, Clinton can sit back and enjoy the sweet taste of revenge.

She is promoting an idea whose time has come, abolishing the Electoral College. This mechanism lets a designated number of individuals from each state vote for the state’s presidential election win. In some states, these people must cast their vote in the same direction as their state’s election win. In other states, though, the electors can vote for Santa if they wish.

In 2016, Clinton took the popular votes 65,853,625 to Trump’s 62,985,106. But he won the Electoral College 304 to 227. In a Monday tweet, she wrote:

‘I believe we should abolish the Electoral College and select our president by the winner of the popular vote, same as every other office. But while it still exists, I was proud to cast my vote in New York for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.’

According to 270 To Win:

‘There are electors relative to the number of members of the House of Representatives and Senators in each state, plus three electors for Washington DC. A winning candidate must receive at least 270 electoral votes to win the presidency.’

Twitter world caught fire and spread faster than Trump’s lies. Check out these great responses to Secretary Clinton’s tweet below:
