He's still dissing on Hillary at these rallies too. His ego is still bruised every time the fact that she won the popular vote but such a large margin is brought up by the news.

A president getting elected and losing the popular vote has only happened twice since 1900. Bush v Gore in 2000 when Gore got 544 thousand more votes.

And now Trump v Clinton where she beat him by 2.8 million votes. Thats more than a 5 times larger margin than Bush v Gore.

That's also why he created the whole fake 3 million illegal votes story - as if there were they must haved for Clinton.

It still chaps his ass.

This is true. What's also true is that Gore won by a much larger percentage of the votes than HRC did, which (subjectively speaking of course) makes the 3 million number a lot less impressive.

On a slightly different subject, what do people think of his reinstating the ban on transgender people serving in the military, esp his reasoning?
I think it's bullshit. Yet another stupid thing he's done that drags the country backwards and downwards.

He is mostly dissing Hillary to take some of the Russian allegations off of him. Why are they doing this to me and not to her? Waah. A whole bunch of whining.

What you talking bout Willis? Gore beat Bush by 0.5% of the vote. Clinton beat Trump by 2.1%.

Going back to 2000. How much does everyone remember about the Florida fiasco, which handed the presidentcy to Bush? Of the millions of votes cast, Bush was determined to have beat Gore by 537 votes - .009%.

Republican Florida Secretary of State, and Co-chair of Bush's Florida campaign Katherine Harris, was instrumental is blocking re-count efforts. Eventually the right leaning Supreme Court voted 4-3 to halt recounts and give Bush Florida which also gave him the electoral college.

You mean that thing I read on the internet wasn't true? GAH!

I think I was misremembering it actually, I bet it pertains to a much more clearly wrong point.

You should look into a career in politics.

Ofc I wouldn't think so

But it pertains to the point i made that a criminal didn't necessarily ever do anything wrong despite having broke the law and can be said to not be at fault

Sometimes authority/society is in the wrong and the betrayer a victim

Richard Dawkins' Berkeley event cancelled for 'Islamophobia' - BBC News

The sad part is that I find it easy to believe.

I know Islamaphobe is such a touchy word for snowflakes in present day, but he did call the religion "the greatest force of evil in the world today" (rofl)

The sad part is actually that Dawkins is able to be pretty smart/insightful on a good day for instance when he talks about things in his field of study
