As the New York and Beltway media light their collective heads on fire over Donald Trump’s reluctance to accept the results of an election that has yet to take place, let’s walk down memory lane for a moment to see how willing Hillary Clinton has been to accept past election results she wasn’t pleased with.
Thankfully, we don’t have to go too far back in time. How about just last week as Clinton appeared with Al Gore in Miami, FL.
While Gore tried to stress the importance of voting he referenced his loss to George W. Bush in 2000. As the crowd begins chanting “YOU WON! YOU WON!” Watch Mrs. Clinton smile and nod in agreement.
GORE: Take it from me, it was a very close election. Elections…
CROWD: YOU WON! YOU WON! YOU WON!
GORE: Here’s my point. I don’t want you to be in a position years from now where you welcome Hillary Clinton and say ‘Actually you did win, it just wasn’t close enough to make sure that the votes were counted’ and whatever. Elections have consequences.
As the crowd chanted and Hillary smiled and nodded approvingly, Gore continued his thought process by suggesting that he actually won the 2000 election by warning the young voters to not be in a position “years from now” welcoming Hillary Clinton and saying to her “actually you did win, it just wasn’t close enough to make sure that the votes were counted.”
Through this entire sequence, Mrs. Clinton continued to smile and nod in agreement.
