SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Let's go back to the earlier issue of Trump saying, we've got to be careful that it's rigged. We did learn that the DNC rigged a system with super delegates, and the DNC was fully behind Hillary Clinton the entire way, and the e-mails proved that. Here's an interesting statistic. The Philly Inquirer, one week after the 2012 election pointed out that in 59 separate precincts in inner-city Philadelphia, that Mitt Romney did not get a single vote, not one. And according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, there were nine precincts in Cleveland alone, again, not a single Romney vote -- not one. Now, maybe I'm conspiratorial. Maybe this is a stretch. But 70 districts in two cities? Seventy-plus districts, not a single vote for Romney? Is that possible?
