The Electoral College this week is expected to formally make Joe Biden the President-Elect, and Hillary Clinton is an elector in New York who is clearly still upset about 2016:
I believe we should abolish the Electoral College and select our president by the winner of the popular vote, same as every other office.
But while it still exists, I was proud to cast my vote in New York for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. pic.twitter.com/th9qebu9ka

There’s actually a bit to unpack there:
The system that elected Joe Biden is broken, and I am participating in it. https://t.co/c1ZJKnmZDq

And what’s with “same as every other office”?
Um…there is literally no person who is elected by a national popular vote.
Maybe this kind of ignorance is why you lost? https://t.co/xbCTbu7PHC

Same as every other office?
There is no office that is elected by a national popular vote in this country. https://t.co/yQ3Gj7Gl5U

What Clinton’s trying to say is that she’d be president but for that pesky Constitution!
Hillary would never push to abolish the EC if NY and CA were red …
Georgia, you better start paying attention to your Senate race in January. Seriously. https://t.co/FZzohopr9I

Hillary should apply pressure to change the Democratic presidential primary contests to a popular vote asap. We can see how that goes (are you guys still counting Iowa or has that wrapped up?) and take it from there. https://t.co/JEKotXdeoS
