We are getting attacked for participating in a recount that we didn't ask for by the man who won election but thinks there was massive fraud— Marc E. Elias (@marceelias) November 28, 2016
Clearly, Hillary and her campaign have not questioned the election result and are observing the recount process as they as well as Trump's camp should - especially since he appears to have a problem with the results.This shows a rather striking level of ignorance of what it means to be represented in a recount.https://t.co/4WpWEsNDDV— Brian Fallon (@brianefallon) November 28, 2016
Gotta love Victoria Brownworth's great graphic with this tweet!November 27, 2016“In addition to winning the electoral college in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.”
— President-elect Donald Trump, in a tweet, Nov. 27Angered by demands for a recount in the three states that gave him an electoral college victory, President-elect Donald Trump made a bold but unsubstantiated assertion in a tweet — that “millions of people” voted illegally in the presidential election. He suggested they voted for his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, who now leads in the popular vote by 2.2 million votes, and thus he actually also won the popular vote.Winning the electoral college is all that counts in the presidential race. But losing the popular vote by such a substantial margin apparently gnaws at Trump. Is there any basis for his claim?
Finally, in post-election mode, Hillary added her latest Twitter follow.Tweets from @HillaryClinton on winning the popular vote: 0— Victoria Brownworth (@VABVOX) November 27, 2016

Getty ImageHillary Clinton’s kept an understandably low profile since losing the election to Donald Trump. Her campaign team will join in recount efforts in every state where a petition is successfully filed by Jill Stein. However, Clinton will likely distance herself from these efforts and maintain her current routine of shying away from the limelight unless someone happens to catch her in dog-walking mode. This provides a nice transition for Clinton’s first post-election follow on Twitter, and those honors go to none other than Snoop Dogg. Writer Stefan Becket nabbed some screenshot evidence.
