GOP should urge re­counts, too

The Washington Times Daily - - EDITORIAL -

Pres­i­dent-elect Trump and the GOP should be cheer­ful war­riors re­gard­ing the Demo­cratic re­counts. In fact, they should join them by ask­ing for re­counts in Vir­ginia, Colorado and New Hamp­shire, as well as any other state in which a Demo­cratic win was re­motely close.

Most vet­eran Hil­lary Clin­ton watch­ers know from prior Clin­ton his­tory that cheat­ing is just an­other proven Demo­cratic strat­egy. While the GOP is at it, why not de­mand a full re­count of all ab­sen­tee bal­lots in every state, since the Democrats are also known for throw­ing out ab­sen­tee bal­lots with­out count­ing them, as shown by Project Ver­i­tas’ un­der­cover videos? Even in states such as Mary­land, Cal­i­for­nia, Mas­sachusetts and New York, where Demo­cratic vic­tory is all but as­sured, they de­spise ab­sen­tee bal­lots. These tend to be mil­i­tary votes, which run about 70 per­cent to 80 per­cent Repub­li­can.

If Democrats are go­ing to claim they won the pop­u­lar vote for the next four years, let’s see if they re­ally did. Plus, the re­counts in Vir­ginia, New Hamp­shire and Colorado might give Mr. Trump even more elec­toral votes to add to his crush­ing win. In all things, give thanks, Don­ald.
