Remember when Democrats and the mainstream media were worried that Donald Trump would lose the election, refuse to accept the results, and then destabilize our democracy? They sure seem to have forgot. In the wake of unsubstantiated anonymous CIA reports that Russia meddled in our election, liberals are behaving as if Moscow was literally stuffing ballot boxes, and they’re demanding that electors ignore the will of the people and hand the nation to Hillary Clinton. Now, congress is getting into it. Via the New York Post:
A Democratic lawmaker is desperately lobbying the Electoral College to shun Donald Trump, and vote for Hillary Clinton — even though he conceded Monday that the Republican won the election “fair and square.”
The plea from Rep. Jim Himes (D-Conn.) comes a week before the Dec. 19 vote, which is expected to affirm the results of the Nov. 8 election, in which Trump beat Clinton with 306 Electoral College votes.
“We’re 5 wks from Inauguration & the President Elect is completely unhinged. The electoral college must do what it was designed for,” Himes wrote Sunday night on Twitter in response to Trump’s gripe that NBC “Nightly News” is “biased, inaccurate and bad, point after point.”
In an interview Monday on CNN’s “New Day,” Himes said that Trump’s refusal to say that the Russians hacked Democrats during the electionwas what prompted his plea to the Electoral College.
This is pathetic. It’s the most pathetic move by Democrats since Ted Kennedy begged the Russians to steal the election from Ronald Reagan in 1984. It is naked disregard for the voting public disguised as virtue. We hope the electors recognize their enormous responsibility and ignore this temper tantrum.
