In its coverage of this spectacle last Saturday, the Daily Mail fails to do jouranlistic due diligence to the most salient aspect of the story. I mean, is there anyone still drawing breath who wouldn’t want to see a video, or at least a still image, of this rotund bag of waste scaling an elevator à la Arnold Schwarzenegger in his adventure-movie prime?

There are plenty of other pictures of Moore’s protest, including the rather sad-looking photo of him above. In it he is wearing his signature many-sizes-too-small basbeball cap and standing amid fellow demonstrators who are much younger and many pounds lighter. In the end, he looks like a child in line for a kiddy ride who is told utlimately he’s too old and too big for the attraction.

Although he was ulimately denied audience with President-elect Trump, Moore tweeted out the vital message he had come to deliver:

This requires some translation for those who don’t speak Liberalese. Essentially, he is saying, “You lost the popular vote and, therefore, the election.” Naturally, as even Moore doubtless knows, it’s the electoral vote that determines the winner in a presidential contest, which means Donald Trump won with 306 to Hillary Clinton’s 232.

Needles to say, if the Left wants to abolish the Electoral College, as Eric Holder is now insisting, they can attempt to do that by going through legal channels. Unfortunately for Moore and company, the change would not be retroactive to the 2016 election.
