WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) — Following the results of Tuesday night’s election, President Obama has signed Executive Order 13805, which orders a full recount of all votes cast in the election and calls for a special election to be held on December 19th. Obama signed the order in response to the concerns of thousands of voters across the country who said that they were prevented from casting a ballot on election day, too many absentee ballots have not been found or counted, equipment failures, as well as concerns that some members of the electoral college may have acted unethically.

“People all over the country have been flooding my office with calls, telling my staff of horror stories about being harassed and intimidated by poll workers,” Obama told reporters. “Many have even said that they were flat out denied entry into the voting booths to cast their ballots if they were wearing a Hillary Clinton shirt or other signs showing support for her as President. This was especially bad in areas of Florida and North Carolina where there are high numbers of Latino and African American voters. We must investigate these claims. The margin of victory is too close to call, and the outcome of this election is too important. There is just too many legal challenges in too many states to just call this a victory for Trump.”

Under the President’s order, the votes cast in all precincts nationwide will be recounted, and all poll workers who took part in Tuesday’s election will be subjected to strict background checks. This process is expected to take 30 days. In precincts where the Department of Justice has cause to believe that voter suppression has occurred, new elections will be held on Dec. 19th, with those results being used to help determine who will represent the individual states in the electoral college.

Not surprisingly, Donald Trump is not happy with the president’s decision.

“Crooked Hillary lost this election fair and square. They tried to rig this election against me, but the American people didn’t allow that to happen. President Obama doesn’t care about what the American people want. I said the system was rigged all along, and this proves I was right.”

The president also said that the DOJ will be taking a close look at the members of the electoral college.

“We have received information from a very reliable source that suggests there may have been some collusion between the members of the electoral college and poll workers in certain swing states. We still need to investigate these claims, but if they are true, we will take all the appropriate actions necessary.”

Paul Horner, a professor of political science at UCLA, believes that the issues with the electoral college run much deeper that this election.

“Most people feel that it is their right as citizens to pick the president of the United States, but there is nothing in the constitution that says that. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by more than 200,000 votes, but because of the electoral college, she still lost. That decision is reserved solely for the 538 electors who meet in their respective states on December 19th. What the people are actually voting for are their states’ electors, not for the President. Though the system is odd and unfair, it has persisted because many insist that it works just fine as it is, with the winner of the popular and electoral vote usually matching. That does not mean, however, that it will continue to work just fine in the future. The way the system is set up could cause it to malfunction in some potentially terrifying ways, this recent election being one of them.”

Political Analyst Matt Daemon told ABC News that he agrees with the President’s Executive Order and said that he would like to see the electoral college done away with altogether.

“[The electoral college] is a f—king joke; we should be using the popular vote instead. It may have made sense in 1788, but so did the three fifths compromise. Everyone should have an equal vote, and that’s just not the case with the electoral college. You know what the electoral college gave us? It gave us George W. Bush. It gave us a war in Iraq, and the worst recession since the great depression. It’s time to bring our system into the 21st century. I hope Obama fixes this, because president Trump is going to be a nightmare.”

Obama finished up the press conference explaining his plans for moving forward.

“We’re going to investigate the FBI into their role in all of this,” Obama said. “Why did FBI director James Comey on Sunday say that the agency is not recommending charges against Clinton after reviewing all of her emails; declaring Hillary Clinton a free women conveniently just one day before the election? Why wasn’t this news released earlier? How many votes were lost because of this?” Obama said. “If all of these questions cannot be answered by our deadline set in December, a recount will be ordered.”

If you have any questions about the recount or the special December 19th election, you can call the Obama administration’s special election hotline at (785) 273-0325.

    • Go kill yourself talking like that. Disrespectful you would never say that to a black person’s face. People like you is why this country will never be great!

    • You are a sad individual. I’m sure you work around and with us everyday, I know for a fact you wouldn’t say that in our faces. Just pitiful how y’all do this stuff on social media!!😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡

    • Donald Snyder as an American I am appalled you think it’s ok to call anyone the N word! You are the problem and NOT the solution! Disgusting and beyond hateful! I’m not a fan of Obama for his policies, but I would never disrespect the office of the president NOR would I ever call him the N word! You are so ignorant and filled with vitriol and hatred. You are mentally ill for making a statement like that. Just because you sit behind your computer and think nobody can see you doesn’t mean you can act like a repugnant fool. He is the president until January 20, 2017 and you need to respect the office he holds. Go look in the mirror and see yourself saying such hatred so you can see how evil you truly look when you say something like that! Think before you type! Grow up! You would never say this to his face and you’re a coward!

    • Donald,
      Calling them n is so uncalled for. You are part of what is wrong with this world. I feel sorry for you that you have so much hate in you.

    • Don’t you dare use that kind of racist, hateful language, ever! Please, stop spreading hate. We are all humans and we all deserve basic human rights and respect.

    • Slave days are over mother fùćker . You can take that taklk and take it to hell. Nobody is gonna sit here and let your racist illiterate aśś talk about anyone like that. Especially the POTUS.

    • donald snyder. your comments have been copied and pasted to the federal bureau of investigations, washington, dc. we recommend you refrain from using racially biased terminologies towards this countries current leader. you can be held criminally and/or civilally liable for any other negative statements.

      • Why don’t you do the same for all these people sending out death threat against Mr. Donald J Trump . Because you are trying to pretend to be someone you are not. You sure Do not care about all the Criminal behave toward Mr. Trump. That the reason we in the mess we in. Because of IGNORANTS .Donald Snyder has a right to say what he please Just like you do . What Obama did is against the Constitution .This election has been rigged from day one . The way the New World Order had it set up. It was supposed to Hillary Clinton and Jed Bush but the American People had other plan. We are tired of the Lame Stream Media and The Washington Mafia telling us who should be our leader. Obama has been a disgrace to America.He has done more damage to America than has been in 240 yrs. Just Like The Clinton Cartel .But the Lame Stem Media has covered up their corruption. So of you wasn’t to report something report something that is not covered by the Constitution. Besides the KKK was a Dem. organization not a Rep. Take a look who is doing all the damage to the cities across America.Why didn’t the American Rep. Take to the street and burn down cities ,vandalize ,right , hurt people like the articles have . Because Obama stole the election in 2012. Because we are not a bunch of ignorant people like the Dem.You can be reported to the NSA for using their name .pretending to be someone you are not. Because I just did it. Their no NSA Operative on any site that would let anyone know they were there . So you have been reported !!!!

    • Donald Snyder, please leave the union. It is no longer 1865 and we in the United States of America don’t speak that way. So Mr KKK, why don’t you gather your friends and go find another place to live. You are so low class.

    • Who the fuck are you calling a NIGGER????
      I want to say what I think of your kind of ignorance but I guess if I want to run for President I should at least talk somewhat civilized
      STFU Don’t care what color your skin is Your an IGNORANT (white) Uneducated drop out. Maybe you returned (yeah right) you seem the stype to do car repair or changing tires. I am sure you have the qualifications to pump gas or bag groceries (oooops jobs are obsolete) Oh My What will you do? No more welfare, so now go find a real job. Lumber jack, washing cars, washing dishes, ETC

      • My god you are both morons. The both of you can leave and take that stupidity with you. You both are bigots, and yet you’re somehow better than the other?

    • It is SECEDE, not SUCCEED, Donald! SECEDE is when a state or group of states chooses to leave their union. SUCCEED is what successful people do when they make the right choices and have fortunate opportunities. Did your white trash, hillbilly educational system teach you nothing? You should have learned it’s rude to use the n word. You should have learned spelling, common decency, and that all men are created equal (that’s in our Constitution – a document written by our country’s Founding Fathers, a bunch of white guys that you would probably like because they’re white). It is also in the Bible that there is no Jew, no Greek, no male, no female, etc., because God LOVES all people. – It’s so sad when stupid people are let out of their cages to vote. But even in saying that. God loves you, even though the rest of us think you’re an ignorant, hateful asshole.

    • Obama did not get the popular vote in the 2012 Election, He won by the Electoral College vote…. Should we take him out of Office now so he can not sign this executive order ?? And honestly, I do not really believe if the election was HONEST to begin with, Hillary would have the popular vote. If we would take out the non citizen votes, the special pardons the Governor of Virginia did for 60,000 Felons, the over 1 million Military abroad that did not get their votes counted yet again because of Obama (2012 and 2016), and all the Soros owned electronic voting machines that switched Trump votes to Hillary…. plus look at Trump turn out at events and rallies vs Hillary turn outs !!! And let’s not forget the Swap My Vote website that allowed voters to pick Hillary, Jill, or Gary and pick someone on the site in another State that they could swap their vote with in order to strategically place a vote to help Hillary better !!! Sorry but that one should never be allowed period !! We all have one vote as citizens of the United States. We should place that one vote in the County of our legal residence, period !!!

      • Exactly! It is time to bind our country together–this will cause even more division. He needs to accept the fact that this election is over. The people of America have spoken.

      • Actually Obama Did win the popular vote in 2008 and 2012. The only Presidents to lose the popular vote and become president are as follows.
        2016: Donald J. Trump
        2000: George W. Bush
        1888: Benjamin Harrison
        1876: Rutherford B. Hayes
        1824: John Quincy Adams

        All Republican candidates. Except John Quincy however he was member of the The term “Democratic-Republican”, is used especially by modern political scientists for the first “Republican Party”.

      • Obama won the popular vote in 2012 by about 5 million votes, he also won the popular vote in 2008 by about 8 million. If your going to make an argument at least make it based on facts.

      • Uhm.. Yes, Obama won the popular vote in 2012. Maybe you’re thinking of the Bush/Gore vote in 2000, when Al Gore won the popular vote but not the electoral college?

      • Obama would go on to win a decisive victory over McCain, winning both the popular vote and the electoral college, with 365 electoral votes to McCain’s 173; he received the largest percentage of the popular vote for a Democrat …

    • I am Canadian but i studied and worked in the United State Of America,my work sponsored me but because of complication on my attorney and i came back with the hope to go back,i am a mental health therapist and America was my home and my daughter,any way i am following the election closely,if i had a choice i will vote to dear Hillary Clinton 100 times.I read about Hillary’s life and her achievements and i am sure she is the one could help people regardless of their ,gender,religious,ethnicity,race and most of that fight for women’s in every way.I wanted to add GOP and republications cheated on Hillary and Comey(FBI) worked with them to decrease her vote and they spread lies about her ,in the same time Trump had many cases pending and no one followed that,if America has freedom of right,President has a power to question and issue an executive order,but my question is how about electoral college,if house voted for trump they will do the same or not.I wish this order will determine and they can prevent him to get to oval office because he does not belong there and he has many cases,he is not qualifies to be the president of a great country.best wishes to see Hillary in the white house.

      • Well said. Madam President (Hilary) won the popular vote. The electoral college is wrong and should be abolished. Trump lied, he is racist, he disrespected women, too many things to talk about. Thing is he stole the election and America is not pleased.

  1. No problem. If Democrats want a second civil war, I’m good with it. It will not take 4 years to destroy them this time. We stopped The Democrats from CHEATING and STEALING this election. States followed their own laws to block people from showing campaign material inside a polling area. Since Obama cannot follow the law, and HE wants to invalidate the election, then let war come. PLEEEEASE do it. We are so ready for this because we knew he would try something stupid.

    Obama….you play your games, but we play ours.
    …and you can’t play with the big boys.

  2. We have a choice between ballots or bullets, and we did the right thing by casting our ballots. If Obama is trying to steal the election and our ballots, then we have no choice but to easily give the other. We knew he was going to try something stupid like this. We stopped Hillary from cheating…again…and now the crybaby liberals cannot handle it? No worries. The first civil war took 4 years, this one will take a few days at most, so go ahead and invalidate our election at the bidding of George Soros. We have the numbers, the guns, the ammo, and the military. Liberals have nothing but panty-waste crybabies and white collar criminals who will all run in a real fight.

    I’m definitely waiting to see if this is legit, but if it is, there will never be another Democrat in any office ever again. The people will see to that rather quickly.

    • You are an ignorant piece of trash and I’m reporting these threats…you sound like a terrorist. You have no authority to do anything but watch and see what happens, you prick

  3. In 2009 oboma stole names from medical records.saying people voted for him My unckle and grandmothers names were there.HOWEVER…My unckle died in My grandmother died in 2009. THE DEAD DONT VOTE>In 2012 ..MY cousins name voted.She died in 1992 .VOTING BOXES disapeared in the state of georgia the black mayer of ware county didn”t do anything.I complained when my name voted.YOU SEE I NEVER VOYED FOR THE LIEING HALF BREED OBOMA NIETHER.I AM FULL BLOODED AMERICAN INDIAN>OBOMA ….Should be in PRISON..for tampering with votes.YOU see he was illiegally place in office by currupt HILLARY CLINTONS FOUNDRTION .

    • @ melynda walker, if you are going to post something ,PLEASE learn to spell !! and for the record Mr.President Obama does not do the gathering of signatures for the election so maybe you should not have been sleep in History/Political Science or Civics class maybe you should have just been in school period !!

    • I don’t know if you have ever thought of this or not, but maybe -just maybe- you, your cousin, your uncle, and your grandmother arent the only people who possess the names that you do. I don’t know your names, but is it conceivable that maybe someone else has the same name?

  4. Lmao recount much needed do what you got to do obama
    Trump isn’t a politician let him stick to business and being ignorant what’s needed is a real politician as president

  5. President Obama is our country’s savior! God bless him! As for Trump, the people will not rest until he is taken down for espionage and collusion with Putin and the Russians as well as voter intimidation and suppression impeding on the election and our democracy! Down with Trump and Pence!

  6. “Many have even said that they were flat out denied entry into the voting booths to cast their ballots if they were wearing a Hillary Clinton shirt or other signs showing support for her as President.

    In many states, this is illegal. There was an article about this posted just before the election.

  7. DONT WORRY. We hate you Devils. This won’t end. Call me A nigger. Act crazy. WE HATE WHITE AMERICA. AND NOW WE ARE COMING FOR YOU DEVILS.

  8. Unbelievable.

    He is gonna steal the election and gives it to Hillary, Obama is just as bad as Hillary! He should be in prison for life. together with Hill and Bill

  9. HOW CAN HE DO THIS?? No one is going to want to vote so close to Christmas unless their candidate wasn’t able to win office. Everyone will be on vacation, AWAY from home so that they cannot vote. THIS is fraud. I think we should have more video evidence. I haven’t seen or heard of this until now. I think of all of the THOUSANDS of people that called his office, we’d have a few social media videos out about how voting booths and places weren’t letting them in. Like video confirmation. BUT NO. Because it didn’t happen guys. WAKE UP! It’s all a lie! I guarantee you that we would have heard about it and it would be on the news. ESPECIALLY since the media was always in Hillary’s favor. ALWAYS! They would have been all over this

  10. Donald – feel free to leave the union, you will not be missed. Take all your KKK buddies with you. We don’t need people like you and Melynda who are so ignorant and vile that they have not respect for the human race. You both are such frickin bigots; what you have to say is meaningless. Trump says he loves the uneducated and your spelling and language clearly puts you in that category – were Hillary’s speeches too advanced for you to understand. I know she didn’t speak at the 3rd grade level Trump uses. Is that his appeal?

  11. I just knew Obama & Hillary would try to pull some crap. If Obama is claiming Hillary got the most popular votes & wants a recount then we all should demand all of the 2,000,000 dead people’s votes & all of the illegal immigrants votes don’t count. Obama said in a video to an illegal immigrant who asked if she could vote that she was allowed to vote. California let millions of illegals vote. We have laws & the Constitution that say you must be a legal citizen to vote in our elections. What about all of the voting machines that changed the peoples votes? So many cities reported cheating & fraud. I bet if all of the Democrats cheating wasn’t done Trump would have also won more of the popular votes than reported. Having Obama interfere is like having the wolf watching the hen in the hen house. Impeachment is long overdue, he is the worse president America has ever had. He is dividing & destroying our country. The News Media suck too. Tell us the Truth!

  12. Who in their right mind would take Donald Trump serious?! His background alone is just unspeakable, his was of thinking is unreasonable. He has no respect for anyone or anything. Obama is not the problem. The problem is the millions of people who try and divide us, when in God’s eyes, we’re equal. Money is the root to evil (the love of it) and just as sure as today is Friday, having that ugh, man if that’s what you want to call him, as our president is just a slap in the face to our ancestors, those who believed and fought for the American dream, different races fighting for what’s right! Call him what you want, but my president is black and he’s well educated, and well raised. Who wants a First Lady that’s just another pop up girl? Who wants a president that disrespects women, children, veterans, hell everyone. Recount is an order!!
    #ImWithHer

  13. Simple, redo the election, but only between Gary Johnson and Jill Stein. The Republicans and the Democrats have proven that they can’t get it right, so let the third parties have a chance!

  14. If they want to change to using popular vote vs. The Electoral College it needs to be done and put into effect for the 2020 election not reverse it now after this election was voted on as the law stood on that day

  15. Anyone of yall that scream racism and hate need to look in the damn mirror. Obummer has given yall of our money. You and the way you think is what’s wrong with this country. The fucking FREE ride is over….. now quit crying and go get a JOB. We are tired of supporting you and have you complain about you being oppressed.we don’t owe you nothing. I

  16. TRUMP did claim that the election had been rigged he should have no problem with this,,,,,,he even stated that he may not accept the results
