The left is desperate to find any and all excuse to delegitimize Donald Trump's surprise victory in the election, but one attempt really blew up in their faces.

The results of the costly recount from Wisconsin are in, and all they do is further dash liberals' hopes:

The results of the Wisconsin recount were finalized Monday, reaffirming Donald Trump's victory in the traditionally blue state.

The Associated Press reported Monday afternoon that Trump actually picked up 162 additional votes, keeping his margin of victory around 22,000 over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Not only did Trump win the recount, but he got extra votes in the bargain too. Fewer than 1,800 ballots were changed, and yet it cost $3.5 million dollars to pay for the recount certification by the Wisconsin Election Commission.

Ironically, Trump had filed to stop the recount that some were beginning to call a scam by Jill Stein to raise money and build up an email list of gullible left-wingers. Both Pennsylvania and Michigan recounts have been halted by court decisions.

The Wisconsin recount found no "widespread voter count or hacking."
