Donald Trump tweets yet another conspiracy theory about votes in 2016. Hillary Clinton smacks it down.

So Trump tweeted that out yesterday.

A number of folks quickly fact checked the claim and found it ridiculous, but perhaps none as well known as this person. 

Here is more courtesy of Mediaite:

Trump appears to be referring to the work of controversial psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein, who has testified before the Senate in July, “biased search results generated by Google’s search algorithm likely impacted undecided voters in a way that gave at least 2.6 million votes to Hillary Clinton (whom I supported).”

Epstein has been repeating this theory for years, and in 2017 Google told the Washington Post that it amounts to “nothing more than a poorly constructed conspiracy theory.”

It is very important to pay attention to what Trump is doing here because I really think he is laying the groundwork for challenging the outcome of the 2020 election, which I think he believes he will lose. 

Trump was all set to challenge the results of the 2016 elction, and then was surprised that he won. 

I think he is dusting off that same playbook for 2020.

    Hillary must shut down god*. That is the only way to break the evangelicals out of their trance of materialism and separation.

      Hillary is a devout lifelong Methodist.

      • WikiP August 20, 2019 at 7:02 pm

        “Clinton has been a lifelong Methodist, attending various churches throughout her lifetime; all belonging to the United Methodist Church:

        First United Methodist Church of Park Ridge, Illinois—in her early life,
        First United Methodist Church of Little Rock, Arkansas—while in Arkansas,
        Foundry United Methodist Church in Washington, D.C.—as the first lady of the United States,
        Metropolitan Community United Methodist Church in New York, New York—currently a congregant.
        Clinton discussed her faith at 2014 United Methodist Women church rally at the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville, Kentucky. However, she has seldom discussed her faith while campaigning. She has openly discussed her Christianity on several occasions, discussing for example the importance of loving one’s neighbor as oneself, of helping the poor and “creating opportunities for others to be lifted up”. Clinton has also expressed disappointment that
        “Christianity, which has such great love at its core, is sometimes used to condemn so quickly and judge so harshly.”

        Professor Paul Kengor, author of God and Hillary Clinton: A Spiritual Life has suggested that Clinton’s political positions are rooted in her faith. She often expresses a maxim often attributed to John Wesley: “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can.” In fact, Clinton repeated this saying in her acceptance speech at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, adding that her mother Dorothy “made sure I learned [these] words from our Methodist faith.”

          The limits of faith and belief. Welcome to the western mind.

    Even his lawyer The Fixer said in his testimony that he feared Trump would not leave the White House willingly if he lost the 2020 election. That’s scarier than anything he’s done so far.

    Oh shit! Now Trump is stating 80% of American Jews are stupid or disloyal for not voting for him. The man with only the Best words will next offer free tickets to any Jew to ride inside any box car of his choice.

    Maybe now’s not the most opportune time to bring up dubious claims by a man with the last name of Epstein.

    ‘He’s ‘a sinister master manipulator’: Why Trump’s narcissistic bullying energizes his base

      “The LameStream Media is far beyond Fake News, they are treading in very dangerous territory!”

      Raw Story interviewed counselor Rosemary Sword about Trump’s name calling and bullying. Sword recently published an article in Psychology Today:

      What we need are everyday heroes to begin acting wisely and collectively.

      How can YOU be a hero? Start with small steps in your personal life and locally, then expand your focus. Here’s how:
      ● Make somebody feel special today. For example, learn their name, look them in the eye, shake their hand, or give them a justifiable compliment.

      ● Ask questions, never follow the rules blindly. We teach our children to obey authority but let’s teach them to obey “just” authority and defy “unjust” authority.

      ● Always ask yourself, what is my ripple effect? What have I done today that will influence other people in a positive way?

      ● Get active in local, state, and even national politics. With the 2020 election around the corner, it’s not too soon to help out your chosen candidates, even if it’s with a small monetary donation. Most important is give your time to help get out the vote of your family, friends, and neighbors.

    ‘He’s getting more panicked’: Editor lays out how Trump’s self-destruction could set the world on fire

    “I think he’s getting more panicked,” said O’Brien. “I think — I suspect that Trump, when the Mueller investigation ended, thought that sort of existential threats to his presidency had been put to rest, and in very short order I think ‘Trump the racist’ became a very appropriate and damning moniker that got attached to him after Elijah Cummings, ‘Trump the racist’ will be part of his historical legacy. And now you have the economy starting to deteriorate a bit around the edges. Whether or not that’s going to be a recession or not, I don’t know, but there’s enough alarm bells on there for a president who has routinely attached his reputation, to a strong economy that’s a job creating economy, and markets are going bananas.”

    “When you start to see fraying around that, I think he’s worried, and I think he sees that gaining traction in a way he can’t control, and he can’t control the fact that he’s being labeled as a racist, and these two things are squeezing him like a vise,” continued O’Brien. “And what does he do in this situation? He responds like the seven-year-old that he is.”

    “there’s a twist.

    Gustavo Araujo Lerma is an avowed Trump supporter, and evidence expected to be introduced in his trial includes letters of thanks from Trump, former Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and current RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel.

    A June 2, 2017, letter from Trump to the defendant assures him that the president and Vice President Mike Pence “are deeply grateful for your resolve to help us make American safer, stronger and more prosperous than ever before.””

  10. just questions I have August 20, 2019 at 8:31 pm

    I really need someone to explain why they believe there is circumstantial proof Bristol could have been pregnant prior to March 2008.

    Nov 11 2007 – Sarah emails that she left Hawaii early due to legislative pressure (special session) and mentions kids and todd were there for the wedding which was that day, and would return Tuesday, two days later. On this trip, Bristol met up with her and Ws friend Alex, Erica’s son, and went parasailing.

    Dec 23 2007 comment on myspace where Lauden told TT “Bris and I saw your mom at the mall while we were xmas shopping.”

    Dec 30 2007 – Sarah emails an aide, “We’re snowmaching in Petersville tomorrow for Track’s last ride before he returns to
    Georgia, so can’t make Benson’s shin dig… I apologize for that be I know you guys are going to have a blast!” A photo from this outing was published in a book. Piper’s age at that time matches photo.

    Early 2008 – Bristol was definitely enrolled at West High, she definitely went on a friendly ice skating date with her cousin’s friend (whose name is known) when she and Levi were briefly off. And she did go on that hockey trip when she and Levi were one, not to mention seen in stands at the rink.

    Bristol was also constantly in the Anch office. This I also know for fact from 2 people, 1 Bailey.

    Feb 4 2008 – Bristol joked with Sarah that Piper needed a cell phone so she could join texting.

    Feb 8 – Bristol was in that minor car accident

    March 2008 – the heath family, including Bristol, gathered on Chuck and Sallys porch. Actually I have no idea when this was in 2008 because Track was there for it. When did he return? I thought it was May or June. But Trig is not in the photo and the other kids look the same as they did in 08.

      You need help for your obsession with Bristol and all the Palin’s. Who the fuck cares about this shit? Seriously!
