Hillary Clinton has responded in style to Donald Trump’s latest attempts to spread a conspiracy theory related to her victory in the popular vote in the 2016 presidential election.
The president took to Twitter at the start of the week with his usual level of subtlety, akin to Jim Carrey’s acting style in the early 1990s after a couple of cups of coffee.
Wow, Report Just Out! Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election!
This was put out by a Clinton supporter, not a Trump Supporter! Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought!
Trump proceeded to @ in Judicial Watch, a foundation described in their own bio as both conservative and non-partisan, as much of a contradiction in terms as “military intelligence” ever was in the eyes of Groucho Marx.
Clinton was having none of this and quoted Trump’s tweet with a comment of her own.
The debunked study you’re referring to was based on 21 undecided voters. For context that’s about half the number of people associated with your campaign who have been indicted.
This was clearly a reference to the six operatives with ties to Trump or his campaign engulfed in Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel Investigation.
Trump, despite being president, remains remarkably embittered about the fact that he didn’t win the popular vote. It’s almost as though he cares more about status and popularity than politics.
