Arizona GOP chairman and presidential elector Robert Graham found a silver lining in Democrats’ longshot bid to dissuade Republican electors from casting their vote for President-elect Donald Trump: getting to call Democrats “a loser one more time.”
Appearing on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” Monday morning, Graham noted the intimidation he and other electors have faced. “Our president should stand out and say, ‘hey stand down, people, this is the process.’ Hillary Clinton, if she had any class, and wasn’t such a hypocrite as it related to her comments about not supporting a democratic process. I mean, people are just standing back and letting this happen and it’s a full-on onslaught to where some of our electors, it’s affecting their health,” Graham said.
“In what way?” host Steve Doocy asked.
“Well, think about the stress you have. You have anywhere from 50 to 100 letters a day. Now, they’re sending Christmas card-type letters. And then you have the emails. We have one lady that’s on our electoral college who received 100,000 emails in one day. Her phone locked up. Her home computer — she had to bring in help to just clear it out just so she could function on a day-to-day basis.”
“Robert, doesn’t it just look to you, as this, you know they tried the recount thing, that didn’t work, they tried the Russia thing, that didn’t work, now they’re trying the intimidation thing. This is just one last chance for the sore losers to try and steal the election, right?” Doocy asked.
“That’s it. It’s unbelievable. And then we talk about voter suppression. I mean here it is at the pinnacle they’re trying to intimidate people away from voting, making them feel very uncomfortable to do it. But I agree with you,” Graham answered. “Today, they’re going to lose one more time and we get to call them a loser one more time.”
