Republicans: Facts? We don't need no stinking facts!

The Washington Post just published an article stating why many Republicans will believe in cheating if Hillary Clinton wins the election.  Why?  Because Trump has already said so.  Trailing by double-digits in the polls, Trump continues to spew lies, blatantly in the face of facts and Republicans believe it, because they want to.  It's more comfortable for them to believe in what makes them happy, i.e. hate Obama and Clinton, than to actually face the truth.

Trump led the effort to find out whether President Obama was born in the U.S.  After Obama produced his birth certificate from Hawaii, still 20% of Republicans believe he wasn't born in the U.S.  Is the State of Hawaii lying? Oh, right.  Hawaii is mostly a Democratic state so they can't be trusted.  Whatever.

Also, Obama is Christian but 43% of Republicans still believe he is a Muslim.    WTF?

Have Republicans forgotten the most egregious moment of presidential election cheating?  Remember the Hanging Chad?  Hmmm.....Shrub was elected in a controversial vote count that was ultimately decided by Florida, a state governed at the time by Shrub's brother Jeb.
