Despite more than two years having past since the 2016 election, it is apparent that failed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has not yet come to terms with her loss to President Donald Trump.
During an event Saturday night that was part of the Clintons’ ongoing speaking tour, the failed candidate claimed once again that the 2016 election was “stolen” from her by Trump in coordination with the Russian government.
Still in denial
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton were in Los Angeles on Saturday for an stop on the formerly powerful political couple’s self-promotional speaking tour, an “Evening with the Clintons.”
At one point during the event, Hillary Clinton revealed just how out of touch with reality she is when she not only claimed that Trump and Russia had stolen the election from her, but also that she had run a stellar campaign that deserved to win.
“You can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,” the
Irony of ironies
Mrs. Clinton has made similar claims many times since the 2016 election, which is rather ironic, not to mention hypocritical, given her sharp rhetoric prior to the election bolstering the left’s general suspicion that then-candidate Trump would refuse to accept the election results or promptly concede defeat if beaten.
In October 2016, when Trump was asked during a debate if he would accept the results of the election ahead of time, he demurred and announced that he’d prefer to wait to see the actual results, a perfectly reasonable stance.
Yet the left and Clinton exploded, with Clinton even declaring how “appalled” she was that Trump wouldn’t blindly accept the results of an election that hadn’t even taken place yet.
Clinton said at the time, “That is not the way our democracy works. We’ve been around for 240 years. We’ve had free and fair elections. We’ve accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them. He is denigrating, he’s talking down our democracy and I, for one, am appalled.”
The problem, of course, is that Clinton and her most ardent supporters most certainly have not “accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them,” and it is Clinton and her comrades who have denigrated and talked down our nation’s democratic systems in disgraceful fashion by suggesting a top candidate and foreign power colluded to “steal” an election away from its rightful winner.
Rock-bottom ticket pricing
On a lighter note, tickets for the Clinton event were practically being given away to anyone who would take them to ensure there were at least some warm bodies present in the venue, with seats reportedly going for as low as $2 on secondary ticket resale websites.
Apparently, there aren’t very many people — even in deep-blue cities such as L.A. — who are willing to pay top dollar to listen to a delusional failed candidate unironically cast aspersions on a duly elected president and the decentralized election system that placed him in office.
