The meme is now hardwired.
Russia flipped the election. If not for Russia, Hillary Clinton would be president.
On Friday the Obama administration rejected Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s effort to fund a recount in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. It looks like Stein may have had some help raising the money, although you will not read about that in The New York Times.
The Times, citing zero evidence (as usual), said the Russians expected questions to be raised about the legitimacy of the Trump win.
Democrats refuse to abandon the baseless conspiracy theory Trump colluded with the Russians to fix the election. The emphasis has shifted to an even more ludicrous conspiracy theory—evil Russians have infiltrated alternative media in the West and there are hundreds of useful idiots supporting the Russian who, after all, want to take over the world just like their Soviet predecessors.
From Business Insider:
A statement from the Obama administration cited by The New York Times acknowledged that the Kremlin likely expected the hacking of some Democratic Party entities in the run-up to Election Day to raise questions about the voting process and the legitimacy of President-elect Donald Trump’s victory.
“Nevertheless, we stand behind our election results, which accurately reflect the will of the American people,” the statement read.
Speculation that electronic voting machines could be hacked has largely been debunked, primarily because the machines are not connected to the internet.
