Stacey Abrams: We Should ‘Jerry-Rig System’ And ‘Go Around Constitution’ For Popular Vote

Former Georgia State House Minority Leader and gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams joined 'The View' on Monday and boasted that Democrats can "jerry-rig the system and go around the Constitution" to win the 2020 election.

Former Georgia State House Minority Leader and gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams joined ABC’s ‘The View’ on Monday and suggested that lawmakers should “jerry-rig the system and go around the Constitution” to bring in a popular vote system.

Stacey Abrams is one of the Democrat Party establishment’s top picks to be their presidential nominee’s running mate. Just like clockwork, the Oprah-endorsed Democrat showed up on The View to be promoted to the public and anointed by Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, and the rest of the shrews.

Former Georgia State House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams joined 'The View' on Feb. 17, 2020 and boasted that Democrats can win the 2020 election by "jerry-rigging the system."
Former Georgia State House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams joined ‘The View’ on Feb. 17, 2020 and suggested that lawmakers can should be “jerry-rigging the system.”

MadWorld report: After an enthusiastic welcome, the hosts were eager to get Abrams involved in the 2020 election: “Rumors are flying that a lot of presidential candidates want our next guest on their ticket as V.P.,” a beaming Whoopi began, before tying in today’s national holiday to that push.

Today is Presidents’ Day and while you’re not running at the moment, at this very second you’re not running, a lot of people want to see you on that ticket first as vice president,” she prompted Abrams.

Abrams didn’t disappoint her leftwing fans, saying it would be a “disservice” to not say yes as a woman of color. But the hosts wanted more. Whoopi touted, “You also see yourself running as president too? to which Abrams gushedAbsolutely!

Co-host Joy Behar followed that up by frantically trying to get Abrams’ 2020 endorsement. “I don’t think you’ve endorsed a candidate yet, have you? Do you think you should? Would you like to? Would you like to do it here?” she begged.

After all the flattery, the hosts let Abrams explain at length her group’s work in fighting “voter suppression.” Abrams ranted about the importance of the census for non-white citizens and immigrants. She even warned illegal immigrants and criminals evading arrest that it was important they answer the census to gain political power:

[I]f you want to make sure that the person knocking on your door isn’t I.C.E., answer the census online….People who are afraid that if you answer the census they’ll be able to find you because you have a warrant, you owe somebody money, whatever, if you have a light bill or a cell phone, they know how to find you [already].

So answer the census so you can get your money and your political power because that’s how we decide congressional leaders, how we decide school board members, how we decide every level of political power. Answer the census in 2020, get your money and be counted.

That’s when co-host Sunny Hostin begged Abrams to teach us all about how the Electoral College is “racist.” It was so sugary and over the top. Abrams went into a tirade about the slavery days and claimed the Electoral College was born out of the racist “South.”

She also argued it was an antiquated racist system that we needed to get rid of, and that’s when Joy Behar complained she would have a hard time with Republicans in power.

Amazingly, Abrams calmly explained how lawmakers could jerry-rig the system and go around the Constitution by using the popular vote because they “didn’t have time” to make a Constitutional amendment.

This question was edited out of the aired show but The View’s Twitter account promoted it online,” Newsbusters reports

Update: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that Abrams intended to secure a Democratic 2020 victory by moving to a national popular vote system. Her desire to change to the popular vote system has nothing to do with the 2020 election or the Democratic Party. The headline has been updated to reflect this.

  1. It’s very apt that democrats original name was terrorists They like to erase that from history too But it’s what they are And they are the drug dealers and money launderers and murderers still today The fraudulent pedophiles murderers and criminals without conscience Still the psychopaths that butchered babies with GLEE .

  2. This is a woman who lost her race by 50,000 votes and still claimed she was robbed. She is a delusional cow and the fact that the libs still give her a platform and an audience is very telling as to how deeply crooked they are.

  3. So the idiot got it wrong, they counted blacks as 3/5 so that the southern “Democrats” wouldn’t get a majority of house seats since the districts are based on population

  4. This fat-arsed bonehead lost her election and is still claiming she was robbed. Another moron with the Hillary syndrome.

  5. The only thing special about her is that mile wide tooth gap she has…I guarantee you, if there was more Republicans in the country than democrats, she wouldn’t be advocating a popular vote.

  6. She is an idiot. Has no respect for the Constitution of the United States and the intentions of our forefathers and the plan for our great nation.

  7. So, the Democrats want to hoist this irresponsible woman almost a quarter of a million in debt to one of the highest offices in the land? Based on what? Her skin color and gender? This’s what ‘leadership’ is to the Democrats? That’s what you call ‘sexism’ and ‘racism’: giving someone power because of their race and gender. Sexism and racism work both ways, like most everything else. If you are granted positive things due to your race, that’s exactly as racist as NOT granting positive things due to your race.

  8. Jerry-rigging is another word for CHEATING, and ‘going around’ our constitution is CROOKED. Why am I not surprised that these words came out of her mouth?

  9. She is with Obama ‘s policy with full corruptions. She and demonic Democrats and Hollywood cheated so much but still she couldn’t win with frauds.

  10. How do people square taking an oath to defend the Constitution, with their push to violate said Constitution? Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t she a member of the Georgia House of Representatives, and wouldn’t she, as such, have, as does the Governor, taken an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States? I thought once you took an oath, unless it said it was for a limited time, that oath was lifelong. She is talking about violating the Constitution.
    If we became really stupid, and changed to the popular vote so California and New York to determine the Presidency, democrats would scream to change back if their candidate lost the popular vote but would have won by the electoral college.
    I think the country would be much better off if only those with “skin in the game” were allowed to vote. For decades, democrats have bought votes with the tax dollars of working people. That’s what promises of cellphones, birth control, college tuition,… are, it’s vote buying. People who don’t pay taxes shouldn’t be allowed to vote for “free stuff” from the pockets of their fellow Americans.

  11. NO ONE who wants to “get around the constitution” is qualified for public office in this country. And any member of any minority has to realize that they will eventually be screwed by a popular vote. That’s why America is a Representative Republic.

  12. Allow me to educate Adams (and anyone else who doesn’t know).
    The President is not elected by “We, the People”, but by the several states.
    The people get to elect, by a direct election, the person who will represent them at the federal level (House).
    Before the ratification of the 17th amendment, each state chose two people to represent the state, at the federal level.
    The president is chosen by (now) 538 people chosen in a manner decided by each state.
    In fact, there is no right, promise, or guarantee, that any citizen may “vote” for the president. For example, if Wyoming decided that the state legislature will pick their three electors without consulting the citizens of Wyoming, they have the Constitutional authority to do so.
    So, as anyone can plainly see, the STATES elect the president, not the people.
    Stacy Adams- you can go suck eggs, okay?

  13. There is definately a lot to learn about this topic.
    I really like all the points you’ve made. Howdy!
    This article could not be written any better! Going through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept talking about this. I am going to forward this
    article to him. Fairly certain he’ll have a great read.
    Thanks for sharing! I have been browsing online more than 3
    hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site
    owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

  14. She is completely right. People of Georgia know she should be Governor but current Governor controlled the votes and of course stole the election. Those who say she is a sore loser either doesn’t know the current Governor lost millions of votes and made it extremely difficult for Black voters to vote or know and don’t care.

  15. “Jerry-rig” is a slur against the Germans. She shows her ignorance every time she opens her mouth.

  16. And we should be arresting, trying, and HANGING ANYONE caught jeopardizing or cheating our election system!

  17. Fact is, Dems have rigged the system since the 1800s. They created the KKK to intimidate people and to get elected, They have stuffed the ballot box in every election. Dead people voting for dems, pets voting for dems, illegal aliens voting for dems. They need to be removed from power.
