Today is the day where electors gather together in their respective state capitols and formally vote for Trump to be president and Morning Joe is reporting on the widespread harassment and threats of violence against electors to change their votes from Trump to Hillary. In fact they point out that it’s so bad that some electors are under police protection.

Last night Trump tweeted this out in response to all the electors getting threats by angry liberals:
If my many supporters acted and threatened people like those who lost the election are doing, they would be scorned & called terrible names!

The Morning Joe panel, including Mark Halperin, says this is the most accurate tweet ever by Trump. They agree that if Hillary had won and Trump’s people were making these threats, the media would be doing exactly what Trump said, scorning them and calling them terrible names.
The panel also agrees that while there’s all this pressure to get electors to change their vote, it’s just not going to happen.
