Why investigate the "red" states?

Just in case you thought Trump's investigation into "voter fraud" is not a matter of ego satisfaction, Sean Spicer wants to disabuse you of any such notion:

"There's a lot of states that we didn't compete in where that's not necessarily the case. You look at California and New York, we didn't look at those two states in particular," Spicer said. "I mean, as the president has noted before, he campaigned to win the electoral college, not the popular vote."

He said that Trump would have campaigned more in "big states, very populous states in urban areas" if he was trying to win the popular vote.

"But he played the game according to the rules of the game, which is electoral strategy," Spicer said. "That being said, I think when you look at where a lot of these issues could have occurred in bigger states, that's where I think we're going to look."
It's all about why Trump didn't win the popular vote, and why California and New York, at least, were involved in voter fraud.  Because, you know, "large urban areas" and all that.

It's obvious from his ... I can't bring myself to say "inauguration" diatribe, it's obvious that when the Trumpzis say "large urban area" that they mean Black People, Latinos, etc. in other words, not white people.

The media has to face that Trump's rise, as that of the Nazis is intrinsically tied to racism and an appeal to the worst of exploitation of the paranoia and self-serving resentment of racists. The media has covered up for him just as much of the German press covered up and enabled the Nazis.

I am convinced they or Putin in his own interest will stage a terror incident just as the Nazis did to gain total control, even more than they've got now. In reading more about the allegations of FSB involvement in the Moscow theater attacks and the murders of Anna Politkovskaya and Alexander Litvinenko and others I'm certain they wouldn't hesitate to do something like that to enhance the power of their puppet and destroy American democracy. And if they didn't, there are lots of people around Trump who would do the same thing.
