Because we don’t actually get President Trump until he is inaugurated in January, what we do get is endless speculation about his Cabinet picks and a little bit more of the Don dancing on the grave of the Democrats. His latest thing to yell about is the Hillary Clinton camp’s backing of Green Party candidate Jill Stein‘s attempt to secure a vote recount in various battleground states.

Basically Stein has been raising money to force a recount in three states – Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan. There will be a recount in Wisconsin, with the other two pending. To flip the result of the election, a recount would have to hand all three states to Clinton, and quite frankly that is not going to happen. Sorry.

The Clinton campaign’s choice to join the recount was a curious one, given that even the Obama admin considers Trump’s victory as a fair one and representative of “the will of the American people”.

So they’re careful about the reasoning. In a statement, they skirted around saying they’re looking for an actual result here:

Regardless of the potential to change the outcome in any of the states, we feel it is important, on principle, to ensure our campaign is legally represented in any court proceedings and represented on the ground in order to monitor the recount process itself.

As you might expect, Trump’s means of prodding Hillary happens to be on Twitter. Apologies for the block of Tweets here, but the man has spun a multi-post yarn. Not the most efficient way of conveying information, but he’s President now.

For her part, Stein is denying that the Clinton camp has much of a role in the recount at all:
