Trump Goes On Twitter To Complain About Recounts In Florida And Georgia, Doesn’t Know How Elections Work

That's not how it works, Mr. Trump.

Republicans really don’t want every vote counted and have gone out of their way to win elections by disenfranchising voters. Donald Trump is no different. The former reality show star took to Twitter to say that Brian Kemp, who ran a massive voter suppression effort in Georgia, “ran a great race” and said that “it is time to move on!” Abrams and Kemp are locked in a tight race for Governor as absentee and provisional ballots are still being counted.

By the way, no outlet, including the Associated Press, has called this race yet.

Trump doesn’t understand why votes are still being counted in Florida.

“You mean they are just now finding votes in Florida and Georgia – but the Election was on Tuesday?” It asked. “Let’s blame the Russians and demand an immediate apology from President Putin!”

However, a recount is automatically triggered in that state if two candidates are within 0.5 points of each other, and a hand recount is mandated with a margin of 0.25 points or less. The Hill reports that as of Thursday night, Scott led Nelson by only 0.18 points.

Twitter users piled in.

Kemp oversaw the election he was running in and used that power to suppress the vote. That’s a fact. Absentee ballots need to be counted that were received after the deadline because of Hurricane Michael.

Conover makes tea partiers cry as a hobby. She was Commander of Jade Helm15 during the failed takeover of the South. She's also one of the biggest arseholes on Twitter. At night, she can be found drinking Conservative tears while pulling off the wings of flies just because she can. She is the founder of a Marxist, Commie, Maoist, Socialist site and has contributed to several other sites, blah blah blah. She is an awful person but she doesn't like to brag about that.
