Hypocrisy: Morning Joe Lists The Many Times Liberals Said The GOP Was Rigging or Stealing Elections...Especially The 2000, 2004 Races

Liberals are going nuts over Donald Trump’s endless trolling that he might not accept the final results of this presidential election. Today, he took it up a notch by saying; “I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election…if I win.” Besides the epic trolling here, which worked because the media took the bait—Trump will accept the results. “Of course I would accept a clear election result,” he added. “But I would also reserve my right to contest or file a legal challenge in the case of a questionable result.” Guess what? That’s not controversial and every candidate reserves that right to challenge the results. It’s not a story. Take a shot of Wild Turkey, liberal media and allies. He’s playing you.

What isn’t true is that this is unprecedented for people to say that this election is rigged or is being stolen. When Democrats found themselves losing for the better part of a decade under President Bush (aka the best living president ever), they too spewed out stories about how Bush v. Gore stole the election, how the GOP is rigging things in Ohio, and how Howard Dean said that we shouldn’t be shocked that the GOP are willing to manipulate elections in a 2006 Rolling Stone interview. Dean was then the chairman of the Democratic National Committee:

I’m not confident that the election in Ohio was fairly decided...we know that there was substantial voter suppression, and the machines were not reliable. It should not be a surprise that the Republicans are willing to do things that are unethical to manipulate elections that’s what we suspect has happened, and we’d like to safeguard our elections so that democracy can still be counted on to work.”

MSNBC’s Morning Joe documented the history of liberals complaining about rigged elections today. As for unethical actions, it should never cease to amaze us how these people can just lie. The videos that James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas group released show Democratic operatives scheming to commit voter fraud, admitting that they paid operatives to instigate violence at Trump rallies, and facilitating lines of communication between pro-Clinton super PACs which is illegal under federal election law. So, we have evidence here, whereas the 2004 Ohio whine fest was simply that Democrats couldn’t convince enough voters to cast their ballot for weak, tepid, and aloof John Kerry. Kerry sucked, Bush won—get over it.

Cortney and Katie also wrote today about how Clinton even believed that Bush didn’t win the 2000 election. Bush won. He won both times, but liberals, like a bunch of high school girls, just can’t seem to let this go. And when a Republicans alleges that voter fraud schemes are being cooked up, with videos showing as much, they go ballistic. I don’t think this election is being rigged. Certainly some bad stuff from the progressive left had been executed this cycle, like shutting down Trump’s rally in Chicago. But it would be best if Trump focuses on listing what he would do to make America great again, while reminding folks about Hillary’s email fiasco and foundation dealings.
