Letter: It seems logic has been thrown out the window

It seems logic has been thrown out the window

Frankly, I don’t understand the comments being made as to who won the popular vote in the recent election.

A morning radio show host even made the inane comment that Donald Trump won the popular vote if the 3 million to 4 million unregistered aliens who, as he claimed, voted for Hillary Clinton were disregarded.

First of all, where did this conclusion come from? Where is the proof that this occurred? Were there poll officials at all voting places in the country who were tabulating who was an alien and who was not? And, assuming this count was accurate, how did they determine that they all voted for Clinton? Did they follow the voters into the booth and see who they voted for?

If one accepts this illogical comment, then I claim the Bills won four Super Bowls if the other team’s scores were disallowed. Or, in the recent Jaguars-Bills football game, the Jaguars won if the three big scoring plays the Bills had were ignored. Has logic ceased to exist in this country?
