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.
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.
Al Gore demanded a recount, he refused to concede the election.

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.
Ancient history now. I felt old just thinking about 2000.
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
I love his sense of humor...thanks, that is funny.
This video started to play right after that one. Love it!

"I would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all of the people of the United States that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election, if I win." - Trump
You got Trump trolled!
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.”
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.
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!
Take that pundits. Hilarious! It'll be all over the networks. heehee

Trump went a step further … He said if Hilarity wins, he will take steps to prosecute her.
And get her removed.
~~~> still don't know why she is allowed to run for ANYTHING ... let alone
PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!
When did Americans become a bunch of blabber mouths and nosey Nellys? Didn' t your mother or grandma ever answer your question with ,"You will have to just wait and see?" Why is everything political?
“And just thinking to myself right now, we should just cancel the election and just give it to Trump, right? What are we even having it for? What are we having it for?” - Donald Trump

Some are saying that the defiant protests over the election are undermining the authority of the Ayatollah and his government and may make future protests more likely and harder to control whether or not the immediate goal of a recount or another election is achieved.
