Black Lives Matter activist and professional protester Deray Mckesson isn’t taking the election results well. That’s why, like so many other liberals, he’s opted to make up his own reality:
Why is it important to remember that HRC overwhelmingly won the popular vote? Because you then remember that we have the mandate, not them.

OK … wait, what?
Why is it important to remember that you won the popular vote? Because when you're at Walmart with fifty cents, then you can buy a Coke. https://t.co/fFwAEbbgnq

Yes, but I have the magic unicorn charm, which is about as consequential and relevant. https://t.co/4hq97vJnOO

Deray may not be good for much, but at least he’s good for a chuckle — and a reminder about the importance of understanding basic civics.
There is no such thing as a presidential mandate. The Constitution gives every president the exact same powers. https://t.co/7U520R3Cwh

@deray It is unimportant HRC won the popular vote given an EC w/the final decision. Accept that fact. You aren't going to change it.

It’s not as if he’s got anything better to do.

(Actually, it was more like two percent. But who’s counting?)
