    After showing his persona during the campaign, insulting women, blacks, hispanics, al, he thinks the nation just wake up and say.....“it's all good”?

    It's priceless hearing a white supremacist calling for unity in a diverse nation.

    Clinton 2 million popular vote lead, and 1.5 million ballots to go. Oh well......I hated Clinton as much as I loathed Trump. With Trump being a populist candidate, what was it that the ultra-conservatives posting on MP use to say about Argentine populism? Does anyone remember?

    Quick Quiz:

    1) Who expressed deporting certain races of people?
    2) Who had absolutely no government leadership of civic experience?
    3) Who promised to do the impossible?
    4) Who drew large crowds with racist rants?
    5) Who wanted to change the constitution?
    6) Who ranted how great he is to his crowds?
    7) Who strong armed and threatened and hated the media?
    8) Who proposed mass deportations?

    What will the “solution” be when he realizes that he cannot perform these mas deportations? Hitler and fascism started with mere words, not actions.

    Populism is a slow death of a nation.

    @ CP

    I do find it odd that The West used to mock the populist governments of SoAm and has now decided to favour them again.

    You mean the “West” who post on MP, not the less than 62 million of 320 million who somehow voted Trump into office, or the more than 64 million who voted for Clinton.

    But yes, where are those ultra conservatives who posted rants against South American populism? I say we need to do a little research on the posters and bring them up and compare to the current Trump populist supporters.

    There is an elector suing the State of Colorado for making him vote for interesting case as other electors might join in.

    @ CP

    The same people who mocked the isolationist policies of CFK and voted for Brexit?

    They all seem to be alike and have very little tolerance for the freedoms in democratic places, unless it pertains the them. “I will accept the results.....if I win, otherwise I reserve my right to challenge the results”. Now he is back to himself insulting Jill Stein.

    When you you suppose he will begin with the term limits for congress? Of will that be another lying Trump campaign promise?

    @ CP Trump seems very rattled by the recount. Why doesn't he just let is happen without fuss? Unless he has something to worry about.
