Black Lives Matter activist and professional protester Deray Mckesson isnâ€™t taking the election results well. Thatâ€™s why, like so many other liberals, heâ€™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 â€¦ 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 heâ€™s good for a chuckle â€” 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.

Itâ€™s not as if heâ€™s got anything better to do.

(Actually, it was more like two percent. But whoâ€™s counting?)
