Sen. Elizabeth Warren doubled-down on her radical demand to abolish the Electoral College Wednesday afternoon; bizarrely suggesting “nobody comes to Alabama or Massachusetts” during presidential races because “we’re not in the game.”

“I believe we need a Constitutional Amendment guaranteeing the right to vote to every single citizen. I believe we ought to repeal every one of the voter suppression laws,” said Warren in Selma, Alabama.
“Nobody comes to Alabama in the general presidential election or to Massachusetts because they figure we’re not in the game because of the electoral college. So, my view on this is that we ought to get rid of the electoral college,” she added.
MORE EXCUSES: Hillary Trashes ‘MADDENING’ Electoral College for 2016 Loss
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton found another excuse for her 2016 defeat to Donald Trump this week, this time slamming the “maddening” and “troubling” electoral college for her election disaster.
The former Secretary of State was speaking at Harvard University when she predictably re-hashed her 2016 race for the White House; this time blasting the “odd system” she believes cost her the presidency.
“I know this is another really obvious thing to say. Vote in every election, not just presidential elections,” Clinton said. “You know, it is maddening because one of the panelists said we get the government that we vote for. Now, we have this odd system with the Electoral College.”
“It’s a little troubling… But nevertheless, we’ve got it. I’ve been against it, by the way, since 2000,” Clinton added. “Not that you need to know that … I have been, because I just think it is absolutely contrary to ‘one person, one vote.'”

PLAN B: Beto O’Rourke Now Supports Democratic Push to Abolish the Electoral College
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke threw his support behind the Democratic Party’s recent push to abolish the Electoral College Tuesday; saying there’s “a lot of wisdom in that” following the results of the 2016 race for the White House.
O’Rourke was speaking with supporters after leaving Penn State when he was asked if he agreed with fellow Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren in her efforts to end the uniquely American political process.

“Last night, Elizabeth Warren suggested getting rid of the Electoral College. Is that an idea you would support?” asked one reporter.
“I think there’s— there’s a lot to that,” O’Rourke fired-back. “You had an election in 2016 where the loser got three million more votes than the victor. It puts some states out of play all together… I think there’s a lot of wisdom in that.”
