Isn't it funny that the one candidate that complained about the election being rigged, lost the popular vote and still won the presidency?

That is all this thread is proclaiming, so need for partisan animosity. I simply thought it was ironic. Now I'm anxious to see what Trump truly changes for the best.

Got my fingers crossed. Have a good one!!!

Very ironic.

Even more so since he called for a REVOLUTION over the EXACT SAME situation when he thought Romney had won the popular vote only to lose due to the electoral college:

In 2012 Trump called for a revolution saying "The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy".

Hes a two faced hypocrite, more than happy to dismiss his prior position simply because hes the beneficiary.

Its interesting the news isnt showing all the electoral votes still, just the popular vote count. Makes it seem closer, which is the narrtive I think they are pushing. With the actual count, its going to be closer to 306-232. I dont see how a 74 point difference can have a popular vote like that. I think the media is in full spin mode, trying to cause a revolution. Or the owners of the news. They are scared. We are being played. We need to calm down and focus. We need to come together against the establishment. They are still there. They are still working. We need to wake up, again.

I would not Call Losing the Popular Vote by 20,000 Votes being a Mandate for Hillary Clinton . If you Factor in that the Dems have a Larger Registered Voter Base than the Reps , that is Basically a Tie in the Popular Vote .

You really don't think the media was actively trying to rig the election with biased reporting and flat out disinformation?

What was the actual difference? Less than 1 million votes? A statistical tie.

I uploaded this about an hour ago, might as well get maximum usage out of it. This was our President-elect in 2012 expressing his upset over that election:

It's also ironic that Thom Hartman (Liberal Radio Show Host) was extremely pizzed off 3 weeks ago, when Donald Trump said that he might not accept the election results.

Yet today, he was angry that this country doesn't elect its Presidents, the way we elect our Governors. That the majority of voters choose the winner. Not gimmicks, like the Electoral College.

Are you paraphrasing Hartman or are you saying the electoral college is a gimmick?

Now, they are rigging the post election results. LOL Still in denial stage. "How can our *oversampled* polls be so wrong?" "How did he win, when we were always saying he won't???"

He disagrees with the system, but since they never changed the rules he'll use it to his advantage. Haven't we heard that before?

It was rigged, and he still won. That's the beauty of it.

Well, I expect anyone to accept results that fall in their favor, but I'm perplexed that he even got as many votes as he did.

We all wanted change... a change from the usual BS network, but only time will tell if he is the right instrument for that change.

I moved to Japan years ago, so I have no pony in this race. However, I wish my fellow countrymen and the world, the best. With a republican congress by his side, this is the time to get things done.

Keep your heads up, America.

You know the best thing about this? He didnt like the political system so he decided to get off his ass and do something about it.
Hats off to TRUMP>

Actually I think it is more ironic that the entire leftist media harped on trump and his supporters for weeks about him "not willing to accept the results" and now those same mouthpieces and their viewer's are doing exactly that, godamn hypocrites.

I would say the irony on both sides is equally delicious. To be honest, I am still utterly shocked that Clinton lost, since I did truly believe it to be a rigged (or at least massively unfairly influenced) election. Then again, I suppose it is harder to rig the presidential election than the primaries, and perhaps a few less of the insecure voting machines were used than she would have liked.

May be it was 'rigged' in his favor.. the insiders inside MIC/NSA wants Trump as their leader, not Hillary. It is not rigged per say, it is how they manipulate people to vote for one vs other - no Saudi/Russia connection leaks - no tax return leaks either. Media didn't pick up on his Saudi connection either..
