    No, I Can't Say the 2016 Election Was 'Legitimate'

    [Clinton] said she found “horrifying” the intimation he would not accept the will of the people on Nov. 8...In a striking breach of the country’s long-standing tradition, he twice declined when pressed to say whether he would accept the outcome of the election. "I will look at it at the time," Trump said. "I’ll keep you in suspense.” There was a gasp from the audience inside the debate hall. "That is not the way our democracy works," Clinton said. "He is denigrating, he is 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 a position.”


    Times have changed. In a new interview with left-wing magazine Mother Jones, Clinton refuses to concede that the election she lost had been legitimate. Horrifying?

    "Do you think it was a LEGITIMATE election?" Clinton: "I think there are lots of questions about its legitimacy, and we don't have a method for contesting that in our system. That's why I've long advocated for an independent commission to get to the bottom of what happened." https://t.co/XAEsK2V2wc

    This is a succinct and comprehensive smack-down of Mrs. Clinton's "appalling" efforts at "talking down our democracy" by a fellow at the left-leaning Brookings Institute:

    There is zero evidence, anywhere, that Trump was elected president for any reason other than the sufficient number of Americans in the right localities actually voted for him. That's a legitimate election. Period. https://t.co/fe9r5ZE5Ki

    Sore Loser Conspiracy Theorist: No, I Can't Say the 2016 Election Was 'Legitimate'
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Appalling.

    It does however confirm what the right has said for over a year - the entire issue against Trump is that they cannot accept that they lost.

    We learn as kids that when you lose, you thank the winner, and tell them "good game". And you practice to win the next time.
    The Brooklyn Dodgers had a SLOGAN - because they were always being beaten by the Yankees - "Wait Till Next Year!".
    Even winners say, better luck next time.

    Do you remember what BAD sportsmanship was? Throwing a fit; interfering with the game; insulting your opponent and REFUSING to shake their hand.
    And of course, NEVERENDING accusations of "cheating".

    I know. I had a little brother. When he was losing a board game, he would grab the board and toss it in the air, claiming EVERYONE ELSE was cheating.
    And this was AFTER we would tell him not to make that Monopoly deal, not to take that country in Risk, NOT to make such a risky play.
    Why would we HELP him get better? For one, beating him was easy - and that's no fun.
    And we tired of being told by our moms to let him play, only to have it end the same every time.

    What did we get? A refusal to concede. Calling for recounts where no anomalies occurred - or were required by law because it was all that close.
    Requests for electors to break faith and vote otherwise. Accusations of collusion with Russians. And a never ending barrage of calls for impeachment, even without the requisite charges of high crimes and misdemeanors. Despite any evidence - or hint of actual evidence - we have a major party candidate refusing to believe she lost.

    Frankly if I were Hillary, I might wonder - why won't they like me? Ok, I lost to Obama. Should have seen that coming. In 2016 - I ran against a socialist cadaver - and he almost won. I ran against a sexist pig - and he DID win. You know, if I ran for homecoming king, and they elected a pig - I wouldn't call for a recount, say they cheated, check the ballots and write a book about how bad the pig was. I'd wonder why I didn't walk away with a landslide.
    “Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.".Daniel Webster

    Knowing what we know about the Clintons, her behavior isn't surprising. Bill boning the help is a right wing conspiracy. Flawless cattle futures trading. Lying in depositions. Rigging primaries. Shaming sexual harassment victims. Pay for play foundations. Questionable land deals.

    I'm still trying to figure out how someone, when giving testimony couldn't remember ####, all of a sudden remembers enough #### to fill a book.
