Fox News’ Chris Wallace absolutely obliterated former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein for her ridiculous recount campaign.
Wallace pointedly asked why, if her efforts are not partisan, Stein didn’t choose states like New Hampshire where Hillary Clinton won by narrower margins than Donald Trump won in the states Stein selected.
Stein said she couldn’t have petitioned for a recount in New Hampshire because the deadline had passed.
A fact that didn’t stop her from persuing a cecount in Pennsylvania.
But the discussion got personal when Wallace confronted Stein on her motivation, based on the fact that there is no chance the votes could switch to give her a win in any state.
“How many votes did you get in — Dr. Stein, how many votes did you get in this election?”Wallace asked.
“Excuse me, excuse me, how many votes did Donald Trump get? He got about 2.5 million less votes,” Stein said.
“He got 62.5 million votes. How many votes did you get, Dr. Stein?” Wallace fired back.
Stein tried to change the topic but Wallace persisted.
“He got 62.5 million votes. How many did you get? I mean the question really is, who’s speaking for American voters, him or you?” Wallace asked.
Stein insisted that she didn’t expect to benefit from the recount herself but that the “American people” are the ones who want the recount.
“Where do you get off saying that the American people are calling for this?” he said. “I think the vast majority of the American people think we should accept the result of the election.”
