    Donald Trump's enormous ego would not allow him to accept that he lost the popular vote in 2016 by nearly 3,000,000 votes so he made a false claim that 3,000,000 people voted illegally, then convened a commission to investigate. After finding no evidence of voter fraud, the commission disbanded. Trump continues to make false accusations of voter fraud and his blindly loyal supporters never question him. However, the head of the Federal Elections Commission has been questioning him for three years, asking for evidence to support his claims. Of course no such evidence exists but Trump continues to spew his lies which undermine Americans' faith in our election process.

    Donald Trump believes every loony conspiracy theory spread by right-wing wackos, especially when it's a conspiracy theory that appeals to his galaxy-sized ego. Thanks to the 18th-century relic known as the Electoral College, Trump won the Presidency. How much longer is he going to keep alleging "voter fraud" and attacking Hillary Clinton?

    Trump accuses Google of election interference
    Newsmax, Aug 19 2019 1:46 PM

    President Donald Trump claimed today that Google "manipulated" millions of voters ahead of the 2016 election in an effort to help Democrat Hillary Clinton win. "Wow, Report Just Out! Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election! This was put out by a Clinton supporter, not a Trump Supporter! Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought! @JudicialWatch," Trump tweeted.

    According to The Hill, Trump was likely referring to data from researcher Robert Epstein of the American Institute For Behavioral Research & Technology. Epstein detailed some of his conclusions in an opinion piece for USA Today nearly one year ago. Google has dismissed Epstein's research, telling The Washington Post in 2017 that it amounted to "nothing more than a poorly constructed conspiracy theory."

    Our racist Tweeter-In-Chief has found another person to attack: Fox News political analyst Juan Williams, who was born in Colón, Panama and who yesterday dared to criticize the President. Trump called him "nasty" and "pathetic" and said Williams asked for a photo to be taken of himself with Trump. Williams did not ask for a photo. Trump lied. Again.

    Fox News' Juan Williams responds to Trump tweet: 'I didn't ask for the picture!'

    Emperor Trump's 2017 tax cuts made banks, big corporations and the wealthiest Americans very happy but failed to stimulate the economy and failed to boost capital spending. They did, however, boost the federal deficit. Trump likes to brag about our "great" economy – never mind all the struggling farmers and bankruptcies and store closings and layoffs and housing shortages – because he knows a good economy will improve his chance of getting re-elected. Spoiler alert: The economy isn't as "great" as he claims.

    Psychologist Robert Epstein, who studied the possibility of undecided voters being influenced by online search results, did not say Google "manipulated" votes. He said Google seemed to be more pro-Clinton than other search engines – and even that is debatable. So Emperor Trump, with zero evidence, believes Google interfered in the 2016 Presidential election but, despite overwhelming evidence, believes Russia did not. Welcome to Trumpworld.

    A majority of truck drivers are conservative Republicans. A majority of farmers are conservative Republicans. Emperor Trump's tariffs and trade wars are hurting both groups. At least 2,500 truckers have lost their jobs so far this year and the federal government has had to give $28 billion in bailout money to struggling farmers. Is America "great" yet?

    Truckers voted for Donald Trump in droves. Now, they say his trade wars and a slew of tax changes are 'killing' their ability to make a living.

    "Our steel industry is the talk of the world. It has been given new life and is thriving." Donald Trump tweeted those words on September 27, 2018 and made similar claims on April 29 and August 13. Of course he was lying.

    Our racist, bigoted, divisive President is becoming more skillful. He can now insult Jews and Democrats simultaneously. And who does he want Jews to be loyal to? Himself, apparently.

    Responding to Emperor Trump's interest in buying Greenland, Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen told Sermitsiaq, "Greenland is not for sale. Greenland is not Danish. Greenland belongs to Greenland. I strongly hope this is not meant seriously. It's an absurd discussion." Trump's response (paraphrased): "Boo hoo hoo, you can't talk that way about me. I'm the Emperor and I deserve love and respect. I'll show you! I'm canceling my plans to visit your country." Trump has the maturity of an eight-year-old. Or maybe a seven-year-old. Or six.

    For the second day in a row, our racist, bigoted, white nationalist President is calling Jews who vote for Democrats "disloyal." He also thanked radio host and right-wing conspiracy theorist Wayne Allyn Root for saying Israelis love Trump as though he's "the King of Israel." Actually, nobody in the world could ever love Trump as much as he loves himself.

    Trump again accuses Democrats of disloyalty
