ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The coverage given by the media to the Democrats on the claim that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote and therefore should be president shows one of two things: either the undeniable ignorance or the absolute deceit and collusion of the media and the Democratic Party.

If one had any understanding of Article ll of the Constitution, one would immediately dismiss this claim by Democrats as a joke or a deceitful statement. If they allow this statement without challenge, knowing of Article ll, they add to the deceit.

Yes, Hillary Clinton received 2.5 million more votes than Donald Trump. Mrs. Clinton won by 4.5 million over Mr. Trump in our five largest cities, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, and Philadelphia, all of which are controlled by Democrats. That would mean Mrs. Clinton lost the rest of America by two million votes. Yes, Mrs. Clinton was rejected by the majority of the states; 60 percent of the states voted for Mr. Trump, and Mr. Trump won the electoral college 306 to 233, as Constitution mandates in Article ll.

These five large cities represent less than six percent of the population. This is clearly why the Founders of this republic penned Article ll, allowing all to have a say. This way the desires of one region cannot dominate the country.

Which is it, ignorance or deceitful collusion?
