Rep. John Lewis Wishes Happy Birthday to 'Madame President'

I've already written about how today is Hillary Clinton's 70th birthday, and how last year she sent what is quite possibly the worst-aged tweet in the history of the platform.

Not to be outdone, Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) sent out a tweet wishing "Madame president" a happy birthday and tagging Hillary Clinton. 

...

Well, perhaps the multiverse theory is real and Rep. Lewis is dropping in on us from Earth 2, where Clinton defeated Donald Trump in last year's election? 

This is all trending towards the absurd. Clinton did not win the election because she did not win enough Electoral College votes, which is how the United States elects its presidents. She did not win these Electoral College votes for a whole variety of factors, but the fact remains that she did not win them. The national popular vote does not matter in the presidential election. She is not the president. She will (barring a surprise 2020 run) never be president. It is not going to happen. Her political career in elected office is effectively over. 

Perhaps Lewis should take some of Clinton's words to heart and stop, ahem, threatening our democracy:
