Hillary Clinton Does Complete 180 on Questioning 2016 Election's Legitimacy
Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who warned that questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 election was "threatening our democracy," has reemerged as sore loser Hillary Clinton now questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 election.
Her comments attacking the legitimacy of the last election came in an interview with Mother Jones published this past Friday:
Just days before last year's election -- when all of the media pundits and polling had her believing she was well ahead of Donald Trump -- she was singing a much different tune on the topic:
That was in response to a question posed to Donald Trump during their third and final presidential debate last year:
A defiant Donald Trump used the high-profile setting of the final presidential debate here Wednesday night to amplify one of the most explosive charges of his candidacy: that if he loses the election, he might consider the results illegitimate because the process is rigged.
Questioned directly as to whether he would accept the outcome should Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton prevail on Nov. 8, Trump demurred. “I will keep you in suspense,” the Republican nominee said. Clinton called Trump’s answer “horrifying,” saying he was “talking down our democracy.”
