In all fairness to our new President, I also can't figure out why 3 million more people like Hillary Clinton than, well, anyone else in the politics game.

It must be devastating to realize that you're less popular, overall, than her. In the parts of the country from whence I hail, her name has been used as a pejorative for almost 25 years, now.

Considering America likes to hold itself above all else as some sort of shining beacon of democracy (even though it's hardly a democracy.), you'd think you'd wanna make sure that the person that got 3million more votes than the other dude actually "wins". It is "democracy" after all.

He's obsessed with voter fraud because he lost the popular vote and can't understand why 3million more people like Hillary over him.
If he lost and got 3million more votes than Hillary he'd be calling for a complete change in system so that the person that got the most votes actually wins. He'd be on all the talk shows hammering that point home.
Note that he hasn't even mentioned changing the stupid system that allowed him to win...

3 million people didn't like Hillary more than Donald....

So many people were disgusted with the options - they stayed home and a plurality put her ahead by some votes.

Hillary didn't lose the election.

The public did.

Regardless of which candidate "won".

You can thank 2 party politics for such shitty results.

We need to start recognizing that Trump can think a few moves ahead. We underestimate our opponent at our own peril.

Trump can't accept the fact that he lost the popular vote.
Bannon may be thinking of suspending elections. Trump is the perfect stooge for Bannon.

Don't forget that Trump has a little monkey on his shoulder whispering to him...

Great thought. That makes a lot of sense. Tim Kaine said Bannon was the reason the White House didn't mention Jews in the Holocaust memorial statement. As a kind of nod to Holocaust deniers.

How easily you say that here. Yet, your idol cares more than anyone else apparently. Why don't you write him a letter that says "Who cares about popular vote? We don't use it" because he sure is looking stupid and making those who voted for him look stupid right along with him. Drinking Beverage

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

Got any evidence for this?

It wouldn't surprise me in the least, but this is the first I've heard of Bannon and the suspension of democracy.

Well, the United States is not a straight democracy and never has been. It's a federal republic, and was specifically designed to allow the individual states to have more say than they would in a straight "majority rules" democracy. We have an electoral college for the same reason(s) that we have a Senate (all states represented equally) as well as a House of Representatives. We can argue about whether that's a good design, but it's not an accident, and many would say the reasons for an electoral college are good ones.

I really hate to agree with LDH, but on this point, I do (agree with him). If you want to get rid of the electoral college, you should want to get rid of the Senate as well.

You'll get no defence of HRC from me.

But...

She's not a megalomaniacal, malignant narcissist with a predisposition to authoritarianism and the nuclear football within arm's reach.

Say what you will about HRCs faults - and they are legion - but they're nothing compared to the current Liar In Chief.

No evidence, hence the wording "may be". Just thinking out loud. It's not an unreasonable assumption given Bannon is a alt right person.
