President Hillary Clinton

President Clinton

Let’s just call it what it is: Donald Trump is not the legitimately elected President of the United States. If you’ve been paying attention for the past fourteen months, you already knew that. But now a grand jury has looked at the evidence that the Russians conspired to rig the election in Trump’s favor, and concluded that there’s enough evidence to indict thirteen people for it. If Trump isn’t legitimately the President, it means that someone else is – and we all know who.


Hillary Clinton won the popular vote over Donald Trump by three million votes. Trump was only named the winner of the election because he pulled off incredibly unlikely upsets in a few specific swing states which caused the Electoral College math to go haywire on a level that’s never happened. Polling proved to have been generally accurate nationwide, with the notable exceptions of those few conveniently out-of-whack states. This was on a nearly mathematically impossible level.


Logically speaking, it’s always been rather obvious that something was wrong. Now we have a grand jury indicting more than a dozen Russians for having specifically targeted a handful of key swing states with everything from targeted fake news online, to in-person rallies aimed at creating the appearance of more support for Trump than there was, so more passive voters would fall in line. Today’s indictments did not prove that the Russian election rigging effort succeeded in handing the victory to Trump, but at this point we know without a doubt that it’s coming next.


How much longer do we have to wait? It’s time to acknowledge that Hillary Clinton is the rightfully elected President of the United States. Even if it can’t be undone, even if she can’t take office, we must acknowledge that Donald Trump was never elected President. He’s holding the office illegally. He wasn’t even legitimately the Republican nominee, because today’s indictments confirm that the Russians conspired to rig that in his favor as well. It’s not clear how we’re supposed to get out of this unprecedented mess. But let’s start here: Hillary is the President, and Trump is just a guy who ran a bad campaign and lost.
