Cry-Baby Trump Vows "Major Investigation" Into Non-Existant Voter Fraud Because He Refuses To Admit He Lost The Popular Vote

We all know Donald Trump is incapable of admitting he is wrong even when it comes to the most trivial of issues. We all know this goes double when it comes to the matter of size.

So let us ask a question...

How do you feel about your tax dollars going to fund an investigation so Trump won't have to admit Hillary Clinton's vote count was bigger than his?

Well he's doing it whether you like it or not as he has already called for an investigation into his thoroughly debunked claim that upwards of 5 million immigrates voted in our US elections?

All of this just so the man-baby won't have to admit that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by 3 million people.

Trump backed his way into this mess when he told congressional leaders on Monday that “3 to 5 million” undocumented immigrants cost him the popular vote by casting ballots for Hillary Clinton, and now refuses to accept the fact that it just isn't so.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer confirmed on Tuesday that Trump actually believes this, citing two recent studies. One, a Pew study that does not support this claim and another that Spicer may or may not have purposefully conflated with the Pew study that — again — does not support this claim.

In fact a study - a non-debunked study -  found that 31 credible incidents out of one billion ballots cast!

Nonetheless Trump on Wednesday again vowed an "investigation" into alleged voter fraud tweeting...

The Justice Department, which would investigate violations of the federal voting rights laws, declined comment Wednesday on the president’s call for an inquiry.

Now, whether or not this was Trump's original intent, congressional Democrats are saying his plan all along was to use the claim to institute new voter qualification rules, making it harder for people to vote in general.

Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the top Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said that Republicans may be seeking...

"another tool and another reason" to ''deny people the vote."

Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., said that...

"if this is the beginning of an effort to suppress legitimate voters from exercising their rights, I will fight like hell against it."

Voting rights groups also expressed dismay as Myrna PĂ©rez, director of the Voting Rights and Elections Project at the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law, said...

Voter fraud and threats of voter fraud have been used throughout this country’s history — and very recently in a numerous amount of circumstances — to justify policies that don’t make our elections more secure and suppress voters,"

Even Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted — a Republican — retweeted Trump and said...

"We conducted a review 4 years ago in Ohio & already have a statewide review of 2016 election underway. Easy to vote, hard to cheat."

Other Republicans have also suggested that Trump stop claiming voter fraud, or at least provide evidence of it.

Sen. John McCain said during a televised interview...

"I think that those who allege that have to come up with some substantiation of the claim," 

The Senate's top Republican, Mitch McConnell said...

"There are always arguments on both sides about how much, how frequent and all the rest."

You know you have issues when even in this most partisan of times you can't even get members of your own party to back you up in an argument of who has the biggest throng.
