    Of course after rusty odonnell spews her arrest Trump nonsense this morning, michael moore; her half wit twin {the more feminine one}, is calling for 100 days of protest.
    Curiously enough, they aren’t protesting any of the democrat politicians who caused most of their situation.
    And noticeably absent is hillary clinton {including her financial support} for any of the people or causes she was so ‘passionately concerned’ about during the election.

    Great. I’m sure the occasion will end at a decent hour unlike Friday nights cokefest in the White (crack) House. It will be nice to see Ice Cream and Cookies offered again instead of designer drugs.

    Remember that scene in It’s A Wonderful Life where George is never born, and he sees Violet Bick getting busted in a prostitution sting being dragged kicking and screaming into the Paddy Wagon?
    That’s Mrs. Clinton on inauguration day.

    I heard recently that Hillary now has more than 3 million more votes than Trump. Not long ago, she was at 2.8 million. I believe it began with just a matter of a few hundred thousand or so on election day. How is it possible that only Hillary has really added to her vote total since the election? How could such a high percentage of votes go only to her? Isn’t this statistically impossible? It seems, given Trump won, it should be much more evenly split. Is there any information available on this topic?


    • sunnydaze says:

      CA., Ill. and NY, etc. are really high population states. Hillary could win every single vote in those states and her total for the Electoral College (the thing that’s actually important and determines elections) would be the same.

      She could win very single vote in all the states where she did win the Electoral College and she would STILL be the loser. Because Trump won the EC in way more states than Hillary did.

      EC: Hillary 220 , Trump 306 = not even close.

      (Someone correct those EC vote tallies if wrong, please. Details getting fuzzy cuz….who cares….He won!!!)


      • SteveInCO says:

        It was something like 304 to 227 I believe, with seven electors saying “screw it” and voting for someone else.


      • JFK, a beloved president lost the popular vote against Richard Nixon and JFK only won by a little bit more than 100,000 (one hundred thousand) votes. AND this with even their vote rigging in CHICAGO [by Sam Giancana who rigged Chicago for JFK as a favor for JFK’s dad whom he knew from Kennedy’s “rum running days”) — Doublecross, by Chuck Giancana]

        REMIND FOLKS that one of the most popular presidents of recent times JFK did not win the popular vote and won by a way less margin AND electoral votes than Donald J. Trump:

        Electoral vote JFK 303 NIXON 219
        States carried JFK 22 NIXON 26
        Popular vote JFK 34,220,984 NIXON 34,108,157
        Percentage JFK 49.72% NIXON 49.55%

        compare to Trump vs Hillary
        Electoral vote TRUMP 304 HILLARY 227
        States carried TRUMP 30 + ME-02 HILLARY 20 + DC
        Popular vote TRUMP 62,979,879 HILLARY 65,844,954
        Percentage TRUMP 46.0% HILLARY 48.0%

        TRUMP HAD A LANDSLIDE even with Hillary’s cheating.

        Which reflects the brilliance of the Founding Fathers – 2 elector votes from each state making them equal, so that the populations of only 2 or 3 states didn’t determine the outcome. The massive growth and takeover by the “Federal” government has been the problem – centralizing power in one place – taking it from the individual states – pushes the meme of a popular vote choosing the winner. Ultimately, if they create enough Democratic welfare cesspool states, they could pull off an electoral college win, but so far they haven’t.
        Also of note, is the massive vote fraud, not just illegals voting, but other fraudulent voting machinations by the Dems has always been a problem, and remains so – which is why they fight voter ID. It’s was also vote fraud that gave JFK the win in 1960, out of Chicago no less.

      Paris, I’ll explain another way:

      Each state gets a specific number of EC votes.The number is based on that states population. So, for example, CA. gets away more EC votes than Maine.

      When a candidate wins a states Popular Vote, that candidate receives the EC votes for that specific state.

      Trump won the Popular vote in way more states than Hillary so won way more EC votes.

        Here you are again Sunny, clearing the fog.


        • sunnydaze says:

          Thanks, Derek. I was hoping to explain it in a way even non- Americans could understand.

          We’ve got a pretty long, complicated election system compared to some other countries, it seems.

          And with this particular election, it seems even some Americans have forgotten how our Presidential elections work! hehe. They are faking “misunderstanding”, but it is what it is. Total Fakers.


      • paris23 says:

        Hi Sunnydaze, I understand that. I was talking about the fact that her vote total popular has risen to more than 3 million more than Trump’s since the election. My question was how is this possible? How is it possible that only Hillary has been gaining votes since the election- how are we to believe this is credible? Is this part of an ongoing scam by the Democrats? It seems to indicate they want us to believe that most absentee votes were cast for Hillary. I don’t believe it. Shouldn’t we be questioning this – or is it simply irrelevant to people given Trump won? It could have implications for future elections. That is why it seems important to me. If I am missing something here, maybe someone can edify me.

    Three Hundred Hours

    Twelve and a half days precisely, or 300 hours, until that pompous pustulous poseur in the White House is outta there! And a real American goes in!

    Not that I’m counting, mind you.
