When asked if Donald Trump would accept the results of the election during the second Presidential debate, he said he would so long as the results are fair.
The next day, he stated that he’d accept the results – if he wins.
Naturally, Hillary Clinton wasn’t too pleased with his comments. They were a “threat to democracy” according to her.
Now, she’s the big loser, and how did respond? Initially, with silence.
As Conservative 101 reported:
Hillary had a big crowd gathered for her at the Javits Center in NYC. The crowd became upset as the night went on and Trump continued to win.
However, right before the final judgement was in, Hillary sent John Podesta to tell the crowd to go home and to still have hope. He told them to all go to sleep and find out the election results the next day.
“Several states are too close to call so we aren’t going to have anything more to say tonight. Everybody should head home and get some sleep. We’ll have more to say tomorrow,” said Podesta to the crowd.
“I want every person in this hall, and across the country, to know that your voices and your enthusiasm means so much. We are so proud of you, and we are so proud of her. She’s done an amazing job and she is not done yet. So thank you for being with her — she has always been with you. Goodnight. We will be back we will have more to say. Let’s get those votes counted and let’s bring this home,” said Podesta. It’s almost sad.
She didn’t give a concession speech until this morning, which, admittedly, was quite gracious. President Obama also gave a reasonably good speech acknowledging Trump’s triumph.
I imagine part of the reason she didn’t give a concession speech that night has to do in part with the shock of losing. She was undoubtedly one of those who believed the media narrative that a Hillary Presidency was an inevitability.
I’m sure her fans did as well. Hence, their amusing response to losing:
Good riddance Hillary. A political dynasty has been stopped in their tracks – and let’s hope this is the last time we hear abou tthem.
