Liberals mocked and jeered Donald Trump for suggesting that the election could be “rigged” in favor of Hillary Clinton. Now that Donald Trump has emerged victorious, winning the electoral college (which matters) but losing the popular vote (which doesn’t), Trump’s liberal critics are starting to think the system might be “rigged” after all.
Clinton won the popular vote. But she got 7m less than Obama did in 2012. Trump wins the election with 1m less than Romney got in 2012. pic.twitter.com/UFvIulmkJU

Markos Moulitsas, one of the main liberals, made the argument on Twitter.
America elected Hillary Clinton. Our rigged electoral system awarded the victory to someone else.

Ah, I get it now…Trump said the election was rigged because a majority of people voted for Clinton but Trump still won #notmypresident

The electoral college is wrong: Hillary Clinton got MORE votes than Donald Trump and she STILL lost. Who was this election rigged for?

Clinton supporters are pretty upset about the whole thing, probably because they assumed, like most of us, that Hillary would win.
