Voter Fraud Conspiracy and Why President Donald J. Trump Needs To Grow Up

It sounds a wee-bit off that I'm saying to President Donald J. Trump, a 70 year old man, nearly 40 years my senior to immediately, grow up!

I've been watching the headlines, and I even read an article a couple of days ago about voter fraud concerning illegal immigrants being allowed to vote, to the tune of 3-5 million ballots cast. However, there has yet to be any evidence to support this claim. Furthermore, Trump is spewing allegations about winning the popular vote, saying that if illegal immigrants hadn't voted, he'd have won that tabulation...not to mention, he's been claiming that he won the popular vote since the day after the election. Again, another claim that has no evidence to substantiate it.

My position on the subject is, so what. Shut up and govern, because you are in fact the President of the United States of America. And whether I like it or not, or whether anyone else likes it or not, you are until you die, resign, or until your term(s) end, the President. Pat yourself and your campaign team on the back for putting together a winning campaign. Be reminded again, you won and you were sworn in. It is official.

The archaic system that is the electoral college does one thing right that I agree with. It allows the votes of smaller states, with smaller populations, to hold their weight in the election, and not have their opinion drowned out by bigger states. If the electoral college were eliminated (which I think it should be for one or two reason), or changed...campaign energy could be focused in states with the largest populations, and even based on the tally from November 8, 2016, Mr. Trump, you would not be the man holding court in the oval office. It would have been Hillary Clinton. Be happy that the old system trumps the opinions of many people and particularly lawmakers in this country.

So with that said Mr. President, please do me a favor and govern the nation. Get some meaningful legislation passed and draft some executive orders for the betterment of all U.S. citizens. The time for soundbites and acting like a buffoon came to an end when you were sworn in on January 20, 2017. Do me a favor and be a President, because you have more than enough Twitter followers, and there's enough bullshit in the news to distract the American public already. Maybe get Putin and the Russians to play ball and actually sit down with the Enrique Pena Nieto to talk seriously about the Mexico-U.S. border.

That would be most appreciated.

Here's the info from CNN.
