Flashback: A “horrifying” assault on democracy.

Apparently, “horrification” depends on who is doing the assaulting.


Let’s loop back to the N.Y. Times coverage of the 3rd Presidential debate …

In a remarkable statement that seemed to cast doubt on American democracy, Donald J. Trump said that he might not accept the results of next month’s election if he felt it was rigged against him.

Hillary Clinton blasted that stand as “horrifying” at their final and caustic debate.

The horror became a cause celebre among Dems and the MSM.

Now, let’s fast forward …


The details according to the WaPo:

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign has been quietly exploring whether there was any “outside interference” in the election results and will participate in the election recount in Wisconsin initiated by Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein.

And if Stein makes good on efforts to prompt similar processes in Pennsylvania and Michigan  the Clinton campaign said it would do so there, as well.

Trump’s response:

The people have spoken and the election is over.

Hillary Clinton herself said on election night, in addition to her conceding by congratulating me, ‘We must accept this result and then look to the future.’


P.S. We scoured both the Washington Post and N.Y. Times articles on Clinton’s apparent refusal to accept the certified election results.

Looking for the word “horrifying” and the phrase “American Democracy” in combination with the phrases “cast doubt on” or “attack on”, we got a “no results” message.

    You may have left out a few of the dots here. Also in the same WaPo article, “Hillary Clinton’s campaign announced it would participate in the effort on Saturday, although Clinton’s top lawyer said that her team had not found any proof to back up allegations of hacking or tampering with voting machines.” Coupled with the fact that she has already accepted the results of the election and that Donald has fabricated “millions” of fraudulent votes it is pretty clear who is playing by the rules here and who is not.
