Clinton's campaign is joining with Jill Stein's to push for the recounts.

Exit polling was definitely off dramatically:

I donated a bit to the recount fund.  I have zero expectation of the outcome being changed in anyway, but I consider it my small bit of affording Trump all of the respect and regard that Obama was afforded by Republicans and conservatives for the last 8 years.

It'll never happen, but I think they should make a change to the system so that if you win the electoral college, but not the popular vote, you're automatically a lame duck and can't run for re-election.

I have felt that way ever since Bush beat Gore.

Can anyone explain what this man-child is saying?


I trust he has some PROOF about illegal votes.

EDIT: Just in case anyone is wondering, I do NOT follow him on Twitter (no desire to), but someone usually informs me of his ramblings.

Surely this is the first instance of the winner of an election questioning the legitimacy of said election; apparently Trump's ego is so fragile that winning the only part of the election that matters isn't enough, he also has to believe he won the popular vote as well.  As for proof?  Trump is the embodiment of the post-factual era; whatever one believes is what's true.

Man is a joke. I can only hope he gets bored with the role, steps down to return to his business dealings and lets someone else do it. Could anyone be worse?

Yes.  Mike Pence, for one.

Pence is someone I have no time for, but if he has one thing going for him, I bet it's that he wouldn't tweet "tantrum tweets" every few hours.

However, I don't like his politics or views, whatsoever. 

It's going to be a long four years.

Trump, asshat that he is, is complaining that "millions voted illegally", which is why Hillary is winning the popular vote.

Ok, if that's the case, I call for a full 50 state,plus DC and American territories, recount.  Let's see what happens then....

So here's my prediction: The GOP will lead the charge to impeach Trump themselves, probably in late summer 2017.
