TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! KANSAS CITY SIGNS OF HILLARY CLINTON RECOUNT SUPPORT AMID DEAD TREE MEDIA MISPRINT!!!
Looking through the discount bin of my favorite box store last night in order to possibly find a bargain on canned meat or maybe a case for my cheap, Indian, refurbished knockoff iPhone . . . The sight of a remarkably incorrect magazine cover evoked fear of a time warp, worm-hole or maybe just an alternate reality wherein people were more comforted by a legacy of corruption rather than the promises of a reality TV game show host.
Thanks to the power of the Internets, it was easy to discover that this magazine is actually a real thing and provided yet another embarrassment for Dead Tree Media amid the ongoing devastation and decline of that industry.
There was actually a recall of the mag but it's not like anybody really noticed in this part of town as they filled their shopping carts with junk as the merciless slouch toward the holiday season persists.
Wide angle view to provide a bit of context and show the magazine amid current newsstand offerings . . . Notice that most of it is "commemorative" because nobody actually gets their news from a newsstand . . .
Anyhoo . . .
More than a few people actually have a bit of faith in the recount effort.

CNBC: Trump trashes 'ridiculous scam' Wisconsin recount by Jill Stein, calls on public to accept results

And so we reached out to KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY DEMOCRATIC PARTY INSIDERS who offered just a bit of insight on the topic.
Here's the word:
"She won the election. Look at the votes, it's not even close. What we're seeing here is a massive uprising against the way the vote was stolen with the help of the media. It's good to see people pushing back against this effort and standing up for Democracy in its purest form."
And so . . .
WAS THIS ELECTION HACKED AND SHOULD THERE BE A RECOUNT?!?!
It's a question that's coming up more often via national media . . . And while there's no question that KCMO is planted right in the middle of Trump country . . . The politically active denizens of Midtown Kansas City seem to be putting a lot of faith in this effort from the looks of so many social media feeds.
You decide . . .
