Krauthammer: Jill Stein 'The Ralph Nader of 2016 Cashing In' on Election
Monday on The O'Reilly Factor, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized 2016 Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein for her recount efforts in three key states won by President-elect Donald Trump.
"If she really cared about the outcome of Wisconsin, she would've campaigned there," Krauthammer said, calling the millions of dollars she raised over the past week a "fundraising scam" for the Green Party.
Krauthammer said her own candidacy caused Hillary Clinton to lose Michigan and Wisconsin, two of the states-- the third of which is Pennsylvania-- where Stein is seeking recounts.
If one-fifteenth of the people who supported her in Michigan and one-quarter of those in Wisconsin both voted for Clinton, the former secretary of state would've beaten Trump in those states.
He said Stein is the "Ralph Nader of 2016, now cashing in" on her candidacy.
Krauthammer also discussed Trump's contention that millions of illegal votes were cast in three other important states.
