Barack Obama constantly lied through his teeth and spewed falsehood after falsehood after falsehood, and he was completely ignored by the liberal mainstream media. As soon as President Donald Trump says anything that is inaccurate, the media pounce and denounce him as is he just committed a most egregious crime. Obviously, liberals can do no wrong in the eyes of the media and conservatives can do no right.
Donald Trump said Thursday that his victory in the 2016 election was “the biggest electoral college win since Ronald Reagan.”
It’s a claim that Trump has repeated numerous times since November. And by any measure, it is flatly and demonstrably false.
Trump officially received 304 electoral college votes when all the counting was over; he would have notched 306 from his performance on Election Day, but two “faithless” electors did not vote for him when the Electoral College met in December.
In comparison, in 2012, Barack Obama received 332 electoral votes. And that was significantly less than Obama’s 2008 showing, when he won 365 electoral votes.
