Why Trump is Obsessed with the Popular Vote
By Lawrence Pfeil, Jr.
Let’s play a game. You know it, so sing along!
“One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn’t belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song?”
“Did you guess which thing was not like the others?
Did you guess which thing just doesn’t belong?
If you guessed that Trump is not like the others,
Then you’re absolutely right!”
Trump is obsessed with the other 21st century presidential dictator’s elections.
Vladimir Putin and Bashar al-Assad both won their popular votes by large margins, and Saddam Hussein won his elections “unanimously;” but Trump did not win America’s popular vote. He lost it to Hillary Clinton by nearly 3M votes, and if the 7M votes that were cast for other presidential candidates are added as well, he lost the popular will of the electorate by closer to 10M.
Trump got 61.9M votes; which was just 46.7% of the total.
The population of the US is 322.8M, so in actually only 19.2% of America voted for him.
For a petty, insecure authoritarian like Little Donny T, that’s some embarrassing shit as a wannabe dictator, obsessed with his election “size” compared to his buddy’s presidential results!
Donald J. Trump, you did not get the popular vote; or the majority vote; but you are detested by most of your country, so you do have that in common with the others.
