Trump repeats lie that 3-5M illegal ballots cost him popular vote, cites no evidence

At a small reception for a bipartisan group of congressional leaders, President Trump claimed that 3 to 5 million illegal ballots cost him the popular vote, CBS News’ Nancy Cordes and Catherine Reynolds confirmed on Monday night. The claim is unproven.

Mr. Trump made a similar claim before. After the election, he tweeted that he “won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally,” but he cited no evidence to back up his claim.

Politico first reported Mr. Trump’s comments, which were made at the Monday evening White House reception for congressional leadership, his first meeting with them at the White House.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi were among those who met with Mr. Trump.[...]


  1. The Liberals are the ones that excel at evidence free claims such as the non existent Russian impact on the election. Anything the MSM brings up is bound to be baloney.

  2. And 17 intelligence agencies did not concur that Russians hacked the DNC & were the source of the Wikileak? That's baloney?
    I'm asking honestly. What is it you think they've fabricated?

  3. Any so called intelligence agency under the foreigner Obama were either incompetent, biased or simply mendacious. Where did you get the number 17 from?

    Trump is investigating the true violation of election distortion in the massive voting of illegals. All those ridiculous, evil idiots who denied states the rights to check for voter ids were begging for and seeking fraud.

  4. Please don't bother. The person you are engaging with has no facts, his moniker notwithstanding.

  5. So, you're back at it! The reason I ignore is because you feel you have the right to be snarky, and through civility to the wind, in order to advance your agenda. Good luck.

  6. Well, at least he does answer questions directly, which frankly, given the answers, I have to give him credit for. Some time in the past I think I suggested he suffered from 'magical thinking', and now he comes right out and attests that bikhlal Obama being Commander-in-Chief automatically makes all reports from anyone under his Administration, no matter how far removed (and many of these intelligence researchers are lifers), de facto lies. Now there's the best evidence for my speculation I could ever hope for.

  7. I admire your honesty. That's quite a sweeping klal you've contrived for yourself there. But do you really believe it's realistic? Even corporations, which have, practically speaking, no First Amendment protection & less whistleblower protections, don't function so absolutely as to lie/distort/fumble all the way down so as magically to serve & protect their CEOs. Any support for such a notion as this, that governs your judgments, that all intelligence reports under Obama were conspiring to aid his purported nefariousness?

    The "17" are the words of the DNI, James Clapper, in an Oct 7 open briefing to Congress.

    Just to keep a balanced standard, however, and seeing as you're so maqpid to check evidence: What evidence is there for Trump's 3-5M. I understand you feel it's a good havamina; you've explained that. But evidence is something else; is there any?

  8. What would you know about facts?

  9. Sweet. All on has to do is to scroll through the previous comments of "Facts of Life" to see that my comment is not snark, it is a simple assessment of reality.

  10. Clapper is a known liar.


    NPR is a famously Leftist organization created to support all Democratic initiatives.

    I didn't claim 3 - 5 million. However, there is significant evidence of illegal immigrant voting.



  11. Do you agree that Trump is a habitual liar?

  12. He's less of a liar than Obama and Hillary and you weren't so upset about them.

  13. You have an idiosyncratic definition of a liar. Trump tells more whoppers and insists on repeating them even after they have been refuted or shown to have no evidence except Trump's gut feelings.

  14. I don't think he can beat Hillary's repeated lies about her emails and her milsa davida ligluyay lies about the movie being the cause for Benghazi.

    Obama was a world record liar with his you can keep your plan and you can keep your doctor open lies.
