I’ve often wondered why Joe Biden has clung so strongly to the lie that President Trump called the neo-Nazis and white nationalists in Charlottesville “fine people”. Finally, Biden has told us: The lie is the reason he decided to run.
If Jill Stein’s votes had gone to Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Florida, Donald Trump’s win would’ve been 280-258 rather than 306-232. In Pennsylvania, had all of Jill Stein’s votes and just under 20,000 of Gary Johnson’s votes gone to Hillary, too, we’d have seen a 278-260 Clinton victory. Dear third-party voters: *You* elected Donald Trump.
