Instead of just admitting she botched it by not going to Wisconsin and running an inept campaign based on the assumption she was going to win combined with calling half the country “deplorable,” Hillary Clinton figures it’d be easier at this point to just alter the constitutional way we elect our presidents:

“Do you think the Electoral College should be abolished?” he asked.
