I said I wouldnt comment on tonights debate until tomorrow, when I host the third hour of Laura Ingrahams radio show. But I cant resist, having seen how the liberal press is trying to spin what, by any objective standard, was a pretty good night for Donald Trump. Its all about Trumps refusal to commit to accepting the result of the election should he lose:
Horrifying! Trump upends a basic pillar of American democracy by saying he will wait and see what happens on election day, because of his concern about voter fraud.
But wait! Who was the last candidate who refused to accept the result on election day, as certified by election authorities? Al Gore. Did Gore upend a basic pillar of American democracy when he tried to overturn the result of the 2000 election? I dont remember the Associated Press saying so at the time. In fact, I would bet that the authors of this piece of AP hysteria were rooting for Gore, at the time. Unbelievable.
The media has their panties in a wad, but guess what is not being talked about, Trump said squirrel they took the bait.
In light of the tapes we have all seen of Democrat operatives admitting to vote fraud, it would be foolish to not wait and see what transpires.
The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about!
Exactly. In order to talk about this they have to make at least passing reference to Trump’s view that the electoral system is rigged. Which the vast majority views as at least possible if not likely.
If was a planted question. Hillary new it was coming.
If Trump answered yes, the headline would be he expects to lose.
He answered no, the headline is he is destroying our faith in our system.
Hillary had a prepared response . . . and wasn’t even required to answer the question.
Ann Coulter was on Sean Hannity's radio show today talking about exactly this, and then went on to list the multiple times throughout recent history when Democrats contested elections that they lost.
Does anyone doubt for a second that Hillary won't unleash an army of lawyers should she lose this one?
Set up question was planted with wallace & dem talking points broadcast it to all their MSM outlets.
Results in contolling the media comments all day diverting attention away from veritas, wikileaks, & the beat down trump put on hildabeast &. xlintonista foundation scams last night.
Why should we accept the results if the black Muslims come out to intimidate us with based
Ball bats at the polls or they rig our machines? If that happens, “accepting thr results” is the least of those bastards problems
Recall Nixon-Kennedy 1960? Nixon was encouraged to contest the outcome and he refused; “Too divisive”. Eight years later he was elected President. Had Al Gore done the same, I do believe he may have become President in 2004.
