Liar-In-Chief Donald Trump Backs Off Promise Of Investigating Voter Fraud

Just five days after he was sworn in, Donald Trump once again returned to the issue of why he had lost the popular vote by some 3 million ballots, tweeting out:

There was even an executive order drawn up which would have launched this YUGE investigation into voter fraud. So when does said investigation begin?

Turns out it doesn’t.

A senior administration official confirmed to CNN that while such an investigation might happen sometime in the future, it’s no longer a major priority. What?! If 5 million people voted illegally in 2016, shouldn’t that, along with probes into how much influence Russian meddling had in the results, be placed at the top of the agenda? Nope. Because it’s yet another lie from this pathological liar.

Perhaps senior advisers to the Liar-in-Chief informed their boss of a recent Politico/Morning Consult poll which showed that only 1 in 4 Americans–a mere 25 percent–believe Trump when he says voter fraud is rampant in the United States.

It should also be noted that being registered to vote in more than one state is not voter fraud. If it were, President Steve Bannon and Trump’s own daughter, Tiffany, would be under indictment because both are registered in multiple states.

What this is really about is simple: Trump cannot accept the fact that he lost (and to a woman!) so badly. He is not able to wrap his damaged mind around the fact that he is an illegitimate head of state who was not the choice of most Americans. Trump lives under the illusion that everyone loves and supports him.

In a month or so, Trump will probably trot out the voter fraud lie yet again, then back away when he realizes he cannot support his preposterous claims with actual facts. This is the pattern. And just think, we potentially have to put up with this crap for four more years.
