Liberals have lost their minds. They simply can’t accept the fact that Trump won the election so they’re clinging to all kinds of crazy theories about how they can still make Hillary the winner.
After crowing about “fake news” all last week, liberals, even some in media, are promoting this story:
Experts Urge Clinton Campaign to Challenge Election Results in 3 Swing States
Hillary Clinton is being urged by a group of prominent computer scientists and election lawyers to call for a recount in three swing states won by Donald Trump, New York has learned. The group, which includes voting-rights attorney John Bonifaz and J. Alex Halderman, the director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society, believes they’ve found persuasive evidence that results in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania may have been manipulated or hacked. The group is so far not speaking on the record about their findings and is focused on lobbying the Clinton team in private.
Of course, if you keep reading the story, it eventually says this:
While it’s important to note the group has not found proof of hacking or manipulation, they are arguing to the campaign that the suspicious pattern merits an independent review — especially in light of the fact that the Obama White House has accused the Russian government of hacking the Democratic National Committee.
Got that? NO PROOF.
Mediaite took liberals to task for this:
Shame on Liberal Journalists For Running With Baseless Election ‘Hack’ Story
You may think that the reason Hillary Clinton lost the election was because she failed to excite the Obama coalition, failed completely to campaign in contested states like Wisconsin and Michigan, and chose to actively ignore the rural, working class voters being courted by Donald Trump.
Those are good guesses, with empirical data behind them. But no, it turns out the real reason Clinton lost was… (dun dun dun!) HACKERS.
If you don’t think the left has lost its mind, just look at this tweet from filmmaker Joss Whedon:
The crafty move was forcing the Dems to debunk voter fraud, so when the Trump/Putin cabal ACTUALLY COMMITTED it, we'd sound hypocritical

Do these people even hear themselves?
Also, have they forgotten this?
Donald Trump refused to say that he’d respect the results of this election. By doing that, he’s threatening our democracy.

Who’s a threat to democracy now?
