Charlie Kirk is a MAGA-dolt whose main claim to fame is embarrassing himself online.
This was his contribution to Sunday's public discourse:
On the off chance Charlie gets a clue and deletes his tweet, he posted the following numbers and quipped: ". . . And we're not allowed to question his 'victory'":
Barack Obama:— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) December 21, 2020
...And we’re not allowed to question his “victory”
Barack Obama:—69,000,000 votes—873 countiesDonald Trump:—75,000,000 votes—2,497 countiesJoe Biden:—81,000,000 votes—477 counties
Charlie is operating under the assumption that the number of counties won by a candidate is more important than the number of actual votes cast for that candidate.
Charlie also believes all counties are alike. They are not.
The United States contains 3,142 counties. The Census Bureau reported that more than half of the US population lives in 4.6% of them (143 counties). For example, here are the least- and most-populated counties in the US.
Kalawao, Hawaii: 88
Loving, Texas: 113
King, Texas: 289
Kenedy, Texas: 404
Arthur, Nebraska: 469
Los Angeles, California: 10,137,915
Cook, Illinois: 5,203,499
Harris, Texas: 4,589,928
Maricopa, Arizona: 4,242,997
San Diego, California: 3,317,749
Twitter tried to help Charlie understand some basic math.
Such as 88 is a smaller number than 10,137,915.
The basic point was: Dirt don't vote.
Counties don't vote, people do. pic.twitter.com/T6Slr4TW1o— pmiLA (@Fzenman) December 21, 2020
Because land doesn’t vote 🤡🤡🤡— Albert 永康 🏳️🌈 (@WingHong2001) December 21, 2020

What counties do the people live in? pic.twitter.com/Sqtwn1MCN0— Nobody special (@NobodySpecial_3) December 21, 2020
Trump won Lassen County, California (4,720 square miles, more than 10,000,000 people)
Biden won Los Angeles County, California (4,751 square miles, fewer than 35,000 people)
Population of Los Angeles County, California: 10,000,000 (1 Biden county (the most populated US county)
Population of Idaho, Kansas, and Kentucky (combined): 9,500,000 (259 Trump counties)
Trump won Loving County, Texas (60 votes to 4 votes)
Biden won Los Angeles County, California (3,028,885 votes to 1,145,530 votes)
Population of California: 40 million (58 counties)
Population of Montana: 1 million (56 counties)
Remember that extremely red map from 2016 that Trump's cult members loved to post? It used the same idiotic logic Charlie used.
Dirt don't vote.
And some people are as dumb as dirt.

Giuliani can say all of this but I’ve spent the past four days on the phone to Trump aides and the consensus is that the president is listening to Sidney Powell more than just about anyone who is on his payroll, certainly more than his own White House Counsel. https://t.co/7oWtuZDtEQ— Jonathan Swan (@jonathanvswan) December 22, 2020
Some folks around the president (not Rudy) keep wanting to pretend the president is playing a game/is just enjoying watching a fight in front of his desk, but that phase ended a few weeks ago. Powell and folks like her have his ear. https://t.co/450siUSYQ1— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) December 22, 2020
