Was he asking for a recount, though? Seems like circlejerking when you're pointing out that fact that he can't ask for a recount if he wasn't anyways.
The idea that you can't ask for a recount when you're far enough apart in votes seems reasonable, but the question is where that threshold would be. According to the stats I just googled with minimal effort, Trump's win was by a large fraction of a percent. While it's not a huge win, it is large enough to where a recount wouldn't change anything, unless you've got outright election fraud going on.
