DNC Chair Tom Perez Just BLATANTLY LIED to a Group of Law Students

DNC Chair Tom Perez  is either a liar or has no clue when it comes to the constitution.
Lecturing at Indiana University, Perez claimed the electoral college is not a creation of the constitution and pushed for a popular vote instead.
The only problem is he is 100% wrong.
In addition, Democrats don’t seem to realize they lost in an electoral landslide because the Trump Campaign intelligently prepared for the contest the way it is.
If the election were to be by popular vote, ad dollars would instead be diverted to big cities that were ignored due to their strategic insignificance.
Liberals always want a quick excuse to be the victim even when their failures are their own and this is no different.

Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez incorrectly stated “the Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution” during a Tuesday night speech.
“The Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution,” Perez said during a lecture at Indiana University Law School. “It doesn’t have to be there.”
The Electoral College, a mechanism for indirect election of the president created by the Founding Fathers as a compromise between smaller states and larger states, is clearly laid out in Article II of the Constitution: “Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress.”
Perez has previously stated that President Donald Trump “didn’t win” last November’s election because Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, but he has never denied the fact that it is part of the Constitution.
The DNC did not respond to an inquiry into whether Perez truly thinks the “Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution.”
There are many educational resources available on the Internet that provide clear explanations of what is in the document, including many from the National Constitution Center, which was established by Congress to provide a “non-partisan … understanding of the Constitution among the American people.”
“Rather than being elected directly by the people, the president is elected by members of the Electoral College, which is created by Article II, Section 1,” it explains.
Following his comment, Perez went on to explain his hopes that states agree to a “national popular vote compact,” in which states agree to give their allocated electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote.
“There’s a national popular vote compact in which a number of states have passed a bill that says, we will allocate our vote, our electoral votes, to the person who wins the national popular vote once other states totaling 170 electoral votes do the same,” Perez said. “I’m frankly proud to tell you that the first state to pass such a law was Maryland.”
