Since the election and victory of President Donald Trump, Democrats and liberal elitists have latched onto the unfounded theory that Russia was somehow responsible for hacking into American voting machines and rigging the election in the President’s favor. Despite the overwhelming lack of evidence, the Left insists that the President must have some kind of connection to”the Russians”. During the 2016 Presidential election, Hillary Clinton asserted that Putin wanted Trump to win the Presidency. Interestingly enough, when leftists believed that Clinton would win the election, they dismissed all claims of any election fraud or tampering. Since their epic defeat in November, they have changed their tune considerably.
Even after former President Obama wiretapped Trump Towers during the soon-to-be-President’s campaign, there was no evidence or information linking President Trump to Russia, Putin, or the like. It appears as though radical leftists are incapable of grasping the simple fact that President Trump rightfully won the votes of the American people. Hillary Clinton recently declared Russia and former FBI director James Comey as responsible for her loss. She claimed Putin interfered to ensure Mr. Trump’s victory and later cited sexism and misogyny as the forces that led to her defeat in November.

This very mentality is why Clinton lost; it had nothing to do with Putin or the Russian government. Donald Trump won the 2016 election because, unlike Hillary Clinton, his policies were feasible and would engender the rise and prosperity of this nation. Additionally, his message and campaign slogans inspired and lifted the spirits of the American people. He was not plagued by an alarming plethora of corruption, scandals, and lies. Donald Trump proved over a course of years that he was effective and successful when placed in leadership roles; Hillary Clinton failed to prove her leadership capabilities on multiple occasions. Collectively, this is why Donald Trump emerged as the victor.
Ultimately, the Trump/Russia conspiracy theory stems from sore losers and sour grapes. If there was solid and concrete proof of Russian interference in the 2016 election, then perhaps the matter would be worth discussing. Unsurprisingly, no such evidence exists. One would think that the wild theories and blatant accusations would gradually cease to exist after the election, but sadly that is not the case. It appears that liberal elites and leftists still have yet to learn that their policies and actions engendered their downfall in November.
