Trump’s inability to accept the inevitable was on full display last night… he’s losing this campaign and will fall in the election by a yuuuuuge margin. Scowling his way through the final debate, Trump hinted again at not accepting defeat on Nov. 9. Rather than admit his shortcomings as a candidate, he has perpetrated the false narrative of a “rigged system.” His colossal insecurity is actively undermining our democracy. Media bias is not “rigging the system”, it is simply a response to HIS OWN hostility. If this irresponsible rhetoric causes any illegal or destructive behavior by his followers, Trump must be held accountable.
Attempts to link Trump’s absurd notion of refusing to accept election outcomes… with Al Gore’s actions in 2000 fail the test of history. Gore drew back his concession because the decisive electoral verdict would come from a state that had instituted and mandatory recount. Florida went to George W. Bush by a margin of 537 votes. Gore’s hesitation was understandable, his continued litigation, debatable.
The election of 2016 is not coming down to one state… the electoral result is going to be decisive. Any attempt to claim that it was somehow stolen, or manipulated is foolish talk from an irresponsible candidate.
