Hillary Clinton's popular vote lead has now reached over 2 million. Just a little ammo for you as you head off to face that conservative uncle this Thanksgiving day.

Our real President at a Rhode Island bookstore.
Courtesy of Politico:  

Hillary Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump in the popular vote surpassed 2 million Wednesday morning, according to Dave Wasserman of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report

Clinton has garnered 64,223,958 votes, compared to Trump’s 62,206,395 votes. 

By Nov. 15, the Democratic nominee’s advantage had crossed the 1-million mark and ballooned to 1.5 million by Sunday.

This is now the largest discrepancy between the electoral college and the popular vote in American history.

So when that conservative family member starts strutting around the dinner table crowing about how your side lost and their side won, remind them that it is only because of our archaic voting system. And that in hearts of the majority of the American people Hillary Clinton is the actual winner.

Also remind them that Hillary Clinton was unjustifiably investigated and attacked by the Republicans over her private e-mail server in the early days of the campaign, even though the Bush administration also used private servers and destroyed 22 million e-mails that the American people were never allowed to see.

That led to a completely unprecedented FBI "investigation" which ultimately exonerated her. 

Then remind them that the Russian government hacked the White House, the State Department, the DNC, and the Clinton Campaign all in an attempt to get a hold of Hillary's e-mails, most of which she managed to keep out of their clutches by utilizing that private server.

You might also remind them that the Russians then leaked what they DID find to Wikileaks who distributed it for media consumption in an attempt to help Donald Trump win this election.

At that point you should mention that when it looked like that might not be enough, and Clinton was handily leading in the polls, that FBI Director James Comey then broke longstanding protocol to essentially suggest that Hillary Clinton might still be under investigation due to new evidence that might or might not exist. (Of course it did not exist which is something Comey could easily have discovered well before his announcement.)

You may or may not inject into the conversation at that point the fact that there are also a number of top computer experts who are urging the Clinton campaign to call for a recount after finding numerous troubling discrepancies in the vote count.

To sum the whole thing up you might look into that smug face of theirs and declare that maybe Trump won, and maybe he didn't.

But what we know for sure is that he not only lied about his opponent at every opportunity, but that also he benefited from the criminal cyber attacks against our country by a foreign nation and the interference of the FBI, without whom he would NEVER have had a shot at wining.

In other words he would have lost if he had not cheated, and if others had not cheated on his behalf.

Then you reach over and grab that last serving of pumpkin pie, because you just won the argument and you totally deserve it.

      Why would they choke on dumb people throwing money down the drain? Probably get a good laugh at it though.

    3. It will probably come to about $6-7 million by the time it's over with the lawyers and all.

      I think this is important to send the message that we are keeping a close eye on hanky panky and are not just going to roll over and play dead.

      The disenfranchisement especially has to be exposed, fought, changed and prevented.

    These are days of temporary euphoria for the limited info voters, religiofascists, and meglomaniacs. Banning et al will push their outrageous agenda far enough until resistance is in the streets, implanted violence will justify martial law.
    Putin will give up a few pawn properties to embolden the Trump regime to over-reach, justifying Putin the psychopath to make his planned checkmate move to world domination. Game over.

      @8:20 "Ukrainian steel magnate Victor Pinchuk’s foundation was the single largest outside donor to Donald Trump’s private charity in 2015, according to new IRS" "“This is at the time that he’s making a big deal about the Clinton Foundation getting money from foreign sources,” "Pinchuk donation of $150,000—reportedly for Trump’s video appearance at the Yalta European Strategy conference—still raises questions about whether Trump is diverting personal income to his tax-exempt foundation." Victor by the way is a very very special man a special entrepreneur,” Trump said. “And when he was up seeing me I said, ‘I think I could learn more from you than you could from me.’

      We will all be laughing at you morons in a few months when reality sinks in that trump is not going to create any jobs, no wall, no jail for Hillary, no healthcare, medicare or social security, no ban on Muslims or deportation of all immigrants and raise taxes on the poor and middle class.

    6 Electoral College members sign up to block Trump from winning

    “...Trump is unfit to serve. His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the Republic,” part of the petition reads. “Secretary Clinton WON THE POPULAR VOTE and should be President.”

    Moscow’s memory is long for the former presidential candidate who called Putin’s regime the ‘number one geopolitical foe’ of the United States.

    I know Stein will go forward with the recounts. However, do we even know if Hillary would take the presidency if offered? It would lead to an unsurmountable mountain of sour grapes possibly transformed into violence.

    There will be NO discussion at the table, as I will just walk away if it erupts. Not worth my breathe to try and sway IDIOTS.

    Making the rounds of right wing "media" is the idea that "illegals" voted in the millions to help Clinton win the popular vote (not true, I live in California, we have orderly procedures) and that dead people voted (also not true, just a misinterpretation of the fact dead people have sometimes not been cleared from voting rolls - however, they don't actually get to vote!).

    So you always have the crazies coming back with some ridiculous argument.

    Rachel Maddow's opening segment Wednesday night told of Rutherford Hayes being GIVEN the presidency though Tilden (the Dem) won both the electoral and popular vote by a wide margin. It was in exchange for removing the US Military from the south who were there to make sure the slaves were no longer enslaved.

    Happy Turkey day and black Friday deals to you all. Me. Just gonna sit at home and try not to implode. I have been sad since that fate filled Tuesday. Hillary looks fucking happy. Good for her. G, don't let this all get to you. There will be better days ahead. There always is. Hitler is long gone. His followers are here. But to what avail? They are such an unhappy lot. No endorphins whatsoever. May we all have a good peace filled day today. If relative and friends gloat over Donald Trump's victory, let them have this day. We had eight wonderful years of a wonderful person in the White House. Thankful for that. Breath. Now let go of those toxins. On a personal level all that hate can't be good.
