Embattled Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ Chief of Staff bizarrely accused President Trump this week of “stealing” the 2016 election by defeating Hillary Clinton in the Electoral College.
“I used to like the idea of the popular vote until I lost it but managed to steal the election anyway because of the electoral college,” posted Saikat Chakrabarti on social media

Chakrabarti was referring to the President’s recent comments where he defended the uniquely American electoral process; saying the College protected the interests of smaller states across the country.
