In the last debate, Hillary blew up at Trump when he didn’t give a straight answer.
“We have accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them. And that is what must be expected of anyone standing on a debate stage during a general election. You know, President Obama said the other day, when you’re whining before the game is even finished, it just shows that you’re not up to doing the job. And let’s be clear about what he is saying and what that means, he is denigrating, he’s talking down our democracy, and I for one, am appalled that someone who is the nominee of one of our two major parties would take that kind of position.”
Whew! If that isn’t a hissy-fit, we don’t know what is. Hillary had a lot to dish out against Trump but she somehow forgot how she’s acted after Bush won the election back in 2000.
Hillary has suggested on multiple occasions that former president George W. Bush did not actually win the 2000 election, and that his brother, then-Florida Governor Jeb Bush, may have had something to do with it.
In 2002, Clinton attended a private fundraiser for Democratic Missouri Senator Jean Carnahan in Los Angeles. According to Newsweek, Clinton told the crowd that she believed that Bush– then the sitting president– was “selected,” not “elected.”
Later in 2009, Secretary of State Clinton was holding a town hall in Abuja, Nigeria. When asked about electoral irregularities in the African nation, Clinton said that even the United States was not perfect in that regard. “Our democracy is still evolving. We had all kinds of problems in some of our past elections, as you might remember,” she said.
There, she had this to say about the election:
“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 I mean, we have our problems too. But we have been moving to try to remedy those problems as we see them.”
That doesn’t sound very accepting of the outcome to us. Don’t you agree?
