Jerk Loses Presidential Election And Demands Recount (Spoiler: Not Hillary)

The next time people complain about the election process here in the United States, just remember we have this crap going on in Gambia to make us feel better about ourselves. This dude makes Hillary look graceful.

After publicly conceding electoral defeat last week, President Yahya Jammeh of Gambia has reversed course and is calling for a new election.

Jammeh has ruled the tiny West African country since seizing power in a coup in 1994, and his public concession to President-elect Adama Barrow on Dec. 2 led to hopes of the first peaceful transition of power in Gambia since it became independent from the U.K. in 1965.

On Friday, Jammeh said the Independent Electoral Commission made errors in vote tallies.

“In the same way that I accepted faithfully the results, believing that the IEC was independent and honest and reliable, I hereby reject the results in totality,” Jammeh said in a televised speech.

There you go folks, this guy went straight up gangster and didn’t need a Jill Stein at all.
