HILARIOUS Meme – Summing Up Hillary and Bernie PERFECTLY!

Hillary Clinton has got to be fuming mad right now — this year’s Democratic nomination was supposed to be hers for the taking, and then Bernie Sanders showed up and actually got people to follow him. Now the nomination isn’t a lock for Hillary anymore, and this hilarious meme sums it up perfectly.

Welcome to the bizarre world of Iowa Democratic caucuses.

In their confusing mathematical calculation, Hillary won 699.57 “state delegate equivalents” to Bernie’s 695.49. That’s a difference of 4.08 delegates.

While that seems like a victory – barely – it turns out that six of those delegates were determined by a coin toss. Here’s how The Des Moines Register explained it:

It happened in precinct 2-4 in Ames, where supporters of candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton disputed the results after 60 caucus participants apparently disappeared from the proceedings.

As a result of the coin toss, Clinton was awarded an additional delegate, meaning she took five of the precinct’s eight, while Sanders received three.

Here’s what happened, according to David Schweingruber, an associate professor of sociology at Iowa State University (and Sanders supporter) who participated in the caucus:

A total of 484 eligible caucus attendees were initially recorded at the site. But when each candidate’s preference group was counted, Clinton had 240 supporters, Sanders had 179 and Martin O’Malley had five (causing him to be declared non-viable).

Those figures add up to just 424 participants, leaving 60 apparently missing. When those numbers were plugged into the formula that determines delegate allocations, Clinton received four delegates and Sanders received three — leaving one delegate unassigned.

Unable to account for that numerical discrepancy and the orphan delegate it produced, the Sanders campaign challenged the results and precinct leaders called a Democratic Party hot line set up to advise on such situations.

Party officials recommended they settle the dispute with a coin toss.

A Clinton supporter correctly called “heads” on a quarter flipped in the air, and Clinton received a fifth delegate.

Similar situations were reported elsewhere, including at a precinct in Des Moines, at another precinct in Des Moines, in Newton, in West Branch and in Davenport. In all five situations, Clinton won the toss.

This is the insanity of the Iowa Democratic Caucus process. This is what the Democrats call “democracy,” folks.

It’s hard to believe that there are so many Americans willing to get behind either one of these candidates, to be honest. One is a corrupt crook, and the other is a flaming socialist. What’s to like?
