U.S. Sen. Rob Portman did exactly what he is accusing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of doing: making barbed remarks that are partisan. Portman, R-Ohio, is a Trump supporter and behaves as a Trump supporter, throwing barbs. I was glad to see Pelosi stand up to Trump because the Republican senators have lacked the chutzpah to do the same. ‘”It took a woman.”’
As for the letter by Eugene Holmes, he must be forgetting Hillary Clinton beat Trump by 2.9 million votes.
The Democrat outpaced President-elect Donald Trump by almost 2.9 million votes, with 65,844,954 (48.2%) to his 62,979,879 (46.1%), according to revised and certified final election results from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Clinton’s 2.1% margin ranks third among defeated candidates, according to statistics from US Elections Atlas. Andrew Jackson won by more than 10% in 1824 but was denied the presidency, which went to John Quincy Adams. In 1876, Samuel Tilden received 3% more votes than Rutherford B. Hayes, who eventually triumphed by one electoral vote.
