Vox Mocked on Twitter Over Tweet About Trump and Electoral College
We're no strangers to lefties saying mind-numbingly stupid things. "AR-15's are sentient beings with grudges against schoolchildren and the Waffle House." "Jesus was a pro-infanticide Bernie Bro." "Mike Pence wants to wire your gay cousin's gonads to a car battery.
Though, this HuffPo tweet wins for most duncetastic bit of leftist douchebaggery in recent memory.
To be clear: Trump only won the presidential election in 2016 because of the Electoral College. https://t.co/0Eiri1qrrp— Vox (@Vox) 1531767901.0
Um, thanks Captain Obvious. Without a smug tweet from Vox, we might have never known Trump won the presidency in such a way. You know, the same as every other president in the history of 'Murica. Bravo.
Unfortunately for HuffPo, other people weren't as receptive to their "civics lesson."
That, my friends, is sarcasm of the highest degree. Such a reaction is warranted when HuffPo smugly details the rules of elections like it's supposed to blow our minds.

HuffPo seems to be implying the popular vote counts for something. It doesn't. Queen cankles could have won seventy percent of the popular vote. If she didn't also lock up the electoral votes, it still means jack squat. Them's the rules
As the pictorial evidence here demonstrates, the Donald achieved victory by performing well all across the U-S-of-A. Hill's fanbase was mostly made up of coastal leftist types. With the Electoral College, candidates have to appeal to Americans from all walks of life. Leftists, on the other hand, would prefer NYC, Chicago, and Los Angeles to exclusively pick our commander-in-chief.
@voxdotcom Having learned this, Vox and its readers may now pass 4th grade social studies. Congratulations 🎈🎊🍾🎉— Gerry (@Gerry) 1531777832.0
You might think all of this mockery to be a bit much, but Vox brought it upon themselves. By treating electoral victories like an earth-shattering revelation.
The left can kick and scream all they want about our election process being "unfair," but it ain't going anywhere. They'd have more luck adopting better policies.
Speaking of the Electoral College:
