Trump: “one of the greatest defeats in the history of politics” we call bullshit

Trump’s pissed and lying his ass off

Trump quotes (lies)

“We had a massive landslide victory, as you know, in the Electoral College. I guess the final numbers are now at 306,” Trump said in an interview on Fox News Sunday.

A statement from his transition team on Friday, in response to reports of the CIA assessment, said, “The election ended a long time ago in one of the biggest Electoral College victories in history.”

Trump also said in his Fox interview, “I think the Democrats are putting it out because they suffered one of the greatest defeats in the history of politics in this country.”

 

The Examiner went back over the last hundred years and looked, see for yourself!

  1. As Carl Bernstein says, Trump really does live in a fact-free universe.

  2. Has the Biggest Loser lost by over 3 million votes yet in the popular vote?

    The recent PPP poll shows that he has more than 2/3 of people against him now

    Please proceed mr trump, finish off the republican party with your nonsense, meanwhile the democrats are recovering and are finally energized.

  3. I’d say Trump’s right. If he tied, or even barely lost to Clinton, it was a huge, humiliating defeat for Clinton if only because who she was running against. To lose, or come out 50/50 to Trump? That’s gotta hurt and is a huge defeat in itself. Any other candidate, maybe not, but Trump?

    Don’t worry. I don’t think we’ve seen the last of HIllary. Her thirst for power is too strong. She’ll keep trying. I hope not, but I think it’s her nature to try to acquire as much power (and money) as possible.

    • It’s not 50-50 Freddy boy it’s 46.3% to 48.2%
      That’s a very significant 2,641,608 vote difference
      For the record we strongly backed Bernie and only supported Ms. Clinton because she wasn’t Trump

        Nope, still pretty close, and humiliating, considering who she was running against.

  4. If the democrat(ic) party recovery consists of futile recounts and trying to get electors to change their vote, then you really haven’t learned anything. And you re-elect fossils like pelosi and hoyer to lead your party, and you call that energized?? Please, stay the course…

  5. Adding a third column to this report would go a long way in explaining the 2016 election and America’s persistent turn to the right.

    “Number of Voting Age Americans”.

    If every election report included the overwhelming context of 70% abstentions by potential voters, the democratic party might begin to be shamed into returning to its roots of representing the common person, ie, voter registration canvassing.

    Humboldt County’s Democratic Central Committee has never canvassed unregistered households, (the majority)…neither has any candidate nor initiative drive.

    It’s not too late for a 2020 rent control measure as Eureka rushes headlong onto feudalism.
