    One thing in  this election season that has been proven over and over , the American people DO NOT trust  the election process , the media , the government , and so who can blame Trump ?  Even democrats no longer trust the DNC  and  certainly not Republicans.  Trumps entire campaign has proven one thing positively ,  He is the ONLY outsider when everyone wants  one to be outside of the system .

      But you don't come out and say it. That's the only thing they are talking about this morning.  As much as you don't want to admit it, the media matters (no matter how biased...and they are).  The media holds sway over a lot of "undecided" voters. 
      Every website I've visited and newspaper states the same thing this morning, that Trump won't respect the process. It's taken out of context, but now it's too late.   It doesn't help his appeal to non-core supporters. He already has the "election is rigged" crowd.  But what about the voters who don't think the election is rigged and might vote for him? 
      The first 45 minutes went pretty well for him and then he blew it (again).  Takes the bait every time.  No margin for error at this point.

        Yes.  Must lie and tiptoe around the question, never stating the truth.  Must be politically correct, in other words.

        Don't see Trump fitting into that mold very well.

      Hillary Didn't Accept The Results Of The 2000 Election
      http://www.hannity.com/articles/hanpr-e … -15221824/

      In October of 2002, during a heated midterm election, then-New York Senator Hillary Clinton declared that President George W. Bush had been "selected" and not "elected" in 2000.

      In 2009, Clinton again implied that the 2000 election was illegitimate at a town hall in Nigeria.

      Clinton said, "In 2000, our presidential election came down to one state where the brother of the man running for President was the governor of the state. So we have our problems too."

      I guess Hillary didn't accept the Supreme Courts ruling.

          That was Florida law. He did not demand a recount.  A full recount was never done.  I believe the Florida SC only ordered the ballots faulty ballots to be recounted.

            Good memory. Thank you, I believe you are right. I could have found a better article with greater detail.  I vaguely remember the tension surrounding that election decision.  I wasn't too interested in politics at the time.

                I felt the same way...that's going back in time.   My point was that history does repeat itself, but many people are unaware.   Chris' Wallace little speech to the Donald at the last debate about accepting the outcome of the election had no premise of truth.  He lowered my opinion of him further of being less than genuine, because I believe he knows better.  His dad: Mike Wallace.

    Trump's "wait and see" statement said it all.  He truly is an outsider. 

    Alan Schulkin, NYC Democratic Election Commissioner, admitted groups of voters get on buses and travel from polling station to polling station casting multiple ballots for their candidates or their issues.
    “You know, I don’t think it’s too much to ask somebody to show some kind of an ID…Like I say, people don’t realize, certain neighborhoods, in particular, they bus people around to vote.”

    People don't trust the government and the media. Free thinkers see right through them.

    Here's the clip of what Donald actually said:
    Presidential debate: Donald Trump refuses to say whether he will accept the result of the election

    Donald Trump didn’t go along with Chris Wallace’s demand he accept the results of the election regardless of whether or not Democrats commit massive voter fraud.

    Instead, Trump told Wallace he’ll have to “look at the results at the time” before making any sort of concessions and until then, “I’ll keep you in suspense.”

    Seeing how the Democrats are planning the steal the election, as James O’Keefe just showed they’ve done for the last 50 years. It triggered the hell out of the press.

    I remember the voter recount when the election was given to Bush. 
    I remember 9/11.

    Independent voters seem ,to me , to be the least trusting of the "system " and you all say they are wrong and  that he is wrong for saying that !  I do not trust the system and I slant conservative .     The left doesn't trust it - The GWB years- Don't generalize the distrust , the rigging is there  ,even if it's only a small percentage .

    I truly believe this election is  largely about government election distrust of all kinds . Hence , Trumps popularity , good or bad !

    Of course he's going to wait and see.

    "You've been hearing me say it's a rigged system, but now I don't say it anymore because I won. It's true. Now I don't care. I don't care." - Trump

    "But let me tell you, we've now exposed it. But here is the way I look at it. I won, so I don't care anymore. Right? We don't care anymore. I don't care. It's rigged. Let somebody else worry about it. Right? Let's somebody else." - Trump

              What, Mr. Trump, does not understand that he is supposed to surrender America to the international banks that Hillary has been conspiring with in secret with to destroy our U.S. sovereignty?  lol

              Leaked Wall Street speeches. Leaked emails.

    You got Trump trolled!   lol
    Trump said, “I will look at it at the time. I’m not looking at anything now. I’ll look at it at the time.”

    Make sense.
    What a DUMB question.

    “Yeah, Chris I will say right here and now that I’ll accept something that hasn’t happened yet.”

    Our media is so stupid.  roll

    Donald Trump MOCKED the media’s obsession over his “acceptance” of an election that has not happened yet, by announcing that he would indeed accept the outcome of the election……

    As long as he wins…..

    Ha ha ha!

    The ABSOLUTE MADMAN actually did it!  lol

    Take that pundits.  Hilarious!  It'll be all over the networks.  heehee
