Former Georgia State House Minority Leader and gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams joined ABC’s ‘The View’ on Monday and suggested that lawmakers should “jerry-rig the system and go around the Constitution” to bring in a popular vote system.
Stacey Abrams is one of the Democrat Party establishment’s top picks to be their presidential nominee’s running mate. Just like clockwork, the Oprah-endorsed Democrat showed up on The View to be promoted to the public and anointed by Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, and the rest of the shrews.
MadWorld report: After an enthusiastic welcome, the hosts were eager to get Abrams involved in the 2020 election: “Rumors are flying that a lot of presidential candidates want our next guest on their ticket as V.P.,” a beaming Whoopi began, before tying in today’s national holiday to that push.

“Today is Presidents’ Day and while you’re not running at the moment, at this very second you’re not running, a lot of people want to see you on that ticket first as vice president,” she prompted Abrams.
Abrams didn’t disappoint her leftwing fans, saying it would be a “disservice” to not say yes as a woman of color. But the hosts wanted more. Whoopi touted, “You also see yourself running as president too?” to which Abrams gushed, “Absolutely!”
Co-host Joy Behar followed that up by frantically trying to get Abrams’ 2020 endorsement. “I don’t think you’ve endorsed a candidate yet, have you? Do you think you should? Would you like to? Would you like to do it here?” she begged.
After all the flattery, the hosts let Abrams explain at length her group’s work in fighting “voter suppression.” Abrams ranted about the importance of the census for non-white citizens and immigrants. She even warned illegal immigrants and criminals evading arrest that it was important they answer the census to gain political power:
[I]f you want to make sure that the person knocking on your door isn’t I.C.E., answer the census online….People who are afraid that if you answer the census they’ll be able to find you because you have a warrant, you owe somebody money, whatever, if you have a light bill or a cell phone, they know how to find you [already].
So answer the census so you can get your money and your political power because that’s how we decide congressional leaders, how we decide school board members, how we decide every level of political power. Answer the census in 2020, get your money and be counted.
That’s when co-host Sunny Hostin begged Abrams to teach us all about how the Electoral College is “racist.” It was so sugary and over the top. Abrams went into a tirade about the slavery days and claimed the Electoral College was born out of the racist “South.”
She also argued it was an antiquated racist system that we needed to get rid of, and that’s when Joy Behar complained she would have a hard time with Republicans in power.
Amazingly, Abrams calmly explained how lawmakers could “jerry-rig the system and go around the Constitution” by using the popular vote because they “didn’t have time” to make a Constitutional amendment.
“This question was edited out of the aired show but The View’s Twitter account promoted it online,” Newsbusters reports.
Update: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that Abrams intended to secure a Democratic 2020 victory by moving to a national popular vote system. Her desire to change to the popular vote system has nothing to do with the 2020 election or the Democratic Party. The headline has been updated to reflect this.
