There was one particular line in the final Presidential debate that sent the mainstream media running for the smelling salts when Donald Trump refused to say definitively that he would accept the results of the election.
It’s no secret Trump has concerns about a rigged election so is it really such a horrible thing for him to say?
Time and again we heard in post-debate analysis that this was “un-American” of Trump, but does this judgment meet the media’s own standards?
Is that what they said back in 2000 when Al Gore conceded to Bush but then took his concession back and proceeded to fight in court for weeks on end?
Is that what they said in 2002 when Hillary Clinton said George W. Bush was “Selected, not elected”?
Is that what they said in 2004 when then Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry said the election was stolen from him?
Of course not. The media didn’t even make such accusations the many times Democrats hurled rigged election accusations within their own party.
It’s the ultimate hypocrisy from the media.
Donald Trump will have to concede defeat if he loses but if there’s any question, he’s well within his rights to fight it out in court.
That’s the American way, as even the biased media would agree if the candidate challenging the results was a Democrat.
