FOX News and Deroy Murdock Cite Gateway Pundit In Report on Trump’s Stunning 2016 Win: It Wasn’t Russia It’s Because He Outworked Hillary

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Deroy Murdock reported at FOX News that it is now clear that Donald Trump is President of the United States because he outworked Hillary Clinton.  This is absolutely true!

Deroy Murdock reported on FOX over the weekend that President Trump won the 2016 election, not because of Russia, but because he outworked Hillary [emphasis added]-

Donald J. Trump won the presidency, fair and square.

He does not occupy the Oval Office due to an elaborate plot involving the KGB, the Kremlin, Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin, or the ghosts of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg. Instead, he won the old-fashioned way: He followed the rules and out-foxed and out-worked Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton.

Hillary, in turn, appeared at only 63 rallies in the final 99 days of the 2016 general-election campaign (versus 132 for Trump), as Gateway Pundit’s Joe Hoft calculated. She addressed, on average, 1,734 people at each of these rallies (versus 7,297 for Trump). Hillary barely made it to Michigan and never managed to find Wisconsin on a map of the USA.

We noted before the 2016 election the following at the end of October 2016:

We have kept track of the number of participants at both Trump and Hillary rallies since the conventions in July. Since August 1stTrump has crushed Hillary in these events. Trump rallies have accumulated more than 710,000 in August through October while Hillary’s only at 60,000. These numbers are so huge they cannot be ignored!


Social Media

Social media numbers for Trump heavily outpace Clinton.


We went on to predict a Trump win and he won!

Americans didn’t want Hillary because she was so corrupt.

Very few wanted a crook in the White House.  We are now finding out that she was more corrupt than we thought.
