Donald Trump told the world the U.S. presidential election was going to be rigged. Then he won. But, he didn’t win the popular vote, and that has apparently been driving him crazy. He made up a claim that around three million votes were cast illegally, and that was the reason Hillary Clinton received more popular votes than he did. And when he got to the White House he announced he would call for a YUGE investigation into voter fraud. Now he’s quietly letting that go.
Trump was supposed to sign an executive order calling for a Justice Department investigation of his claim, but, despite Sean Spicer’s insistence that such an order was coming, it never materialized. They even called reporters to the West Wing to watch Trump sign it. But after the media waited for about 30 minutes Spicer said Trump had gotten “jammed up” in meetings and he promised the order would be signed within the next couple of days.
That’s a win for the American taxpayer, as virtually everyone with any knowledge of the issue agrees that voter fraud on that massive of a scale not only didn’t happen, it is almost impossible to happen thanks to our decentralized election system. And not only are the experts not buying it, American voters aren’t either. A February 2 poll found only 1 in 4 registered voters surveyed believe what Trump has been saying.
There are so many unanswered questions about so many things. So why did Trump focus on something so easily disproven? If he wants to get to the bottom of something…
- Who WAS D.B. Cooper?
- Whatever happened to Hillary’s alien baby?
- Who put the bomp in the bomp bah bomp bah bomp?
- And of course, who put the ram in the rama lama ding dong?
Trump’s favorite “fake news” organization, CNN, along with FactCheck.org, took a look at Trump’s voter fraud claims. Here’s what they found.
