Cenk Uygur: Why Is Team Trump ‘So Jittery’ About Recount?

cenk-uygurThe Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur was on the ABC This Week roundtable today to discuss, among other things, efforts by the Jill Stein camp to get recounts in three states.

Uygur recently said he has no problem with a recount and Martha Raddatz asked him this morning if it’s hypocritical for team Clinton to join the efforts when they were criticizing Donald Trump for perhaps not being willing to accept the results.

Uygur responded, “Not at all.”

He said recounts are perfectly reasonable to call for, while making this observation about how Team Trump is responding:

“I don’t know why they’re so nervous. They’re just so jittery. ‘No recount! No recount! Whatever you do, don’t do a recount!’ Just calm down. If you think you won, the recount will show the same thing.”
