As campaign promises go, there are really dumb things said, and then there’s downright stupid.
Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts is now promising something really stupid, as in IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.
Warren posted a video Tuesday stating her hope that she will “be the last American president to be elected by the Electoral College.” She went on to say that she wanted to be “elected by direct vote” to serve her second term as president.
The last time ANYONE with a rudimentary knowledge of the American system of government looked, it takes 38 state legislatures to change any part of the Constitution. At this time in history, at least 30 would most likely vote AGAINST revoking the Electoral College. Does Senator Warren not get this?
Making absurd, completely unrealistic promises is rapidly becoming her specialty. https://t.co/py1s6D84aS

The POTUS literally has zero say in the process to eliminate the Electoral College. If your goal is to help push through a bunch of moronic constitutional amendments, you should stay in the Senate. https://t.co/1IxE2od4Va

That about says it. Elizabeth Warren is crazy if she thinks the Electoral College is going away any time soon.
