The same people who now want to the nation to “heal” (Translation: “Surrender, America.”) and who bellow that the president is wrong to legally challenge corrupt election results are they very same people who four years ago encouraged presidential electors to switch sides and throw the election to Hillary Clinton. Wonder if they think that is still a legitimate move? If so, I’m all for it.
FNC: “MSNBC host Chris Hayes has been one of the most vocal critics of President Trump, accusing him in recent weeks of undermining democracy by not conceding the 2020 presidential election, but resurfaced comments he made back in 2016 suggested he also did not respect the country’s electoral process. Back in December 2016, following Trump’s Electoral College victory against Hillary Clinton, Hayes offered a ‘fun fact’ that suggests that the 306 electors that handed the president-elect the White House didn’t actually have to abide by their own state’s ballot outcome.”
“Fun fact: states decide how to apportion their electors. They could give them all to, say, whichever candidate won majority of counties!” Hayes tweeted.

“There are people who have been pushing very hard who think that because of some of the constitutional perils of the emoluments clause, because of the popular vote margin, because of fundamentals they think threat to liberal democracy that electors should be persuaded and pressured on Monday and to part to what their pledge is and vote against Donald Trump,” Hayes added.
Leftist hack propagandist Michael Moore agreed, “I believe that right now that there are electors — we only need 38 of them, who have a conscience or are worried about a man who won’t attend daily security briefings, who we now know Russia was trying to help get elected. I mean, could you imagine if you or I been running for office and they showed that the Iranians were somehow involved in helping you or me get elected? What would happen to you or me, Chris? I’m just curious. What would happen?”
“I think it would be a totally chill situation,” Hayes moronically responded.
Republican pundits were quick to jump on the present hypocrisy, “I have no doubt Chris Hayes still considers this a ‘fun fact,'” said Daily Caller reporter Chuck Ross.
“Funny how @chrishayes completely memory holed this,” said National Review contributor Pradheep J. Shanker.
“But I was told Democrats didn’t try to undermine the results of the election in 2016,” RedState contributor Sister Toldjah sarcastically quipped. To paraphrase Rick Blaine, she was misinformed.
