WELL, THEY STILL HAVEN’T ACCEPTED 2016: Liberal Media Scream: Anti-Trump media fears he’ll never leave office.
During one of the debates between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump during the 2016 election campaign, the Democrats became outraged when Trump said he might not immediately accept the election results should Clinton be declared the winner.
Questioned directly as to whether he would accept the outcome should Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton prevail on Nov. 8, Trump demurred. “I will keep you in suspense,” the Republican nominee said. Clinton called Trump’s answer “horrifying,” saying he was “talking down our democracy.”
The response from Democrats ranged from horror to fury. Articles from the entire liberal press attacked Trump for daring to suggest such a thing. Hillary Clinton response was typical, and quite pointed:
“That is not the way our democracy works,” Clinton said. “We’ve been around for 240 years. We have had free and fair elections. We’ve accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them. And that is what is expected of anyone standing on a debate stage during a general election.”
She continued: “He is denigrating — he’s talking down — our democracy. And I for one, am appalled that somebody who is the nominee of one of our two major parties would take that kind of position.”
A CNN panel discussed whether President Donald Trump will accept the results of the 2020 election if he loses, but completely overlooked remarks made by former Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Stacey Abrams, both who have repeatedly suggested their elections were “stolen” from them.
It began when Liberty University president and vocal Trump supporter Jerry Falwell Jr. tweeted over the weekend that the president should have “2 years added” to his first term for time “stolen” due to the Russia investigation, which he referred to as a “corrupt failed coup.”
STOP BEATING AROUND THE BUSH, KURT. TELL US WHAT YOU REALLY THINK. Kurt Schlichter: Our Lying Garbage Media Is Lying Garbage, But You Knew That. “They hate you, so feel free to hate them back. The MSM was not infuriated with Donald Trump when he called these hack transcriptionists for the liberal elite ‘the enemy of the people’ because he was lying. The MSM was not infuriated with Donald Trump because he was telling the truth.”
