OMG! Politicians are HORRIFIED!! (Best Election Year EVAH!)

Lawmakers slam Trump for saying he won't commit to election results

Trump on abiding by election: I'll look at it at the time

Lawmakers from both parties blasted Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump Wednesday after he refused to say that he would accept the results of next month's election.

During his final debate against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, the real estate mogul said he would "look at [the results] at the time," later adding that he would "keep you in suspense."

Trump has repeatedly warned his supporters that voter fraud could swing the election and has urged them to act as monitors at polling places.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Trump's comment demonstrated "contempt for the sanctity of our elections.

"With his ‘wait and see’ position, he disrespects the voice and votes of the American people," Pelosi added.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a former rival of Trump's for the GOP nomination, said that Trump "is doing the party and country a great disservice by continuing to suggest the outcome of this election is out of his hands and 'rigged' against him.

"If he loses, it will not be because the system is 'rigged' but because he failed as a candidate," Graham added.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., called Trump's comments "horrifying" and demanded that he "immediately reverse course and state that he will accept the results of our free and fair elections." Reid added that such a statement "must come from Trump's own lips ... statements from staff or surrogates will not suffice."

Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller defended the statement, saying that the candidate was "putting those who might be looking to commit voter fraud ... on notice that we’re going to be watching and that we’re going to make sure that we’re gonna have honest and fair elections."

For her part, Clinton described Trump's statement as "horrifying."

"Every time Donald thinks things are not going in his direction, he claims whatever it is is rigged against him," said Clinton, who went on to cite claims Trump had made against various contests he believed to be fixed.

"He lost the Iowa caucus, he lost the Wisconsin primary, he said the Republican primary was rigged against him," she said. "He claims the court system and a federal judge is rigged against him. There was even a time when he didn't get an Emmy for his TV program ['The Apprentice'] three years in a row and he started tweeting that the Emmys were rigged."

Trump interjected at that point, "I should have gotten one."

"This is how Donald thinks," Clinton continued. "And it's funny, but it's also really troubling."

The politicians are horrified! HORRIFIED! That's the best news yet. They are putting the pressure on Trump to accept whatever voter fraud might be found, by capitulating right now. (Remember how they all promised to support whichever candidate rose to the top?? They are largely scum of the worst sort).

And obviously Trump is not a cowardly politician like all the rest of the scum in both parties. My respect for Trump has increased with his lack of timidness in addressing the putative Queen-by-ascension on all of her lies, her bloody failures in the middle east and the subsequent rise of both Putin and Boko Haram / ISIS, as well as the increased aggression of China and North Korea.

Electing Obama II would be insane, and yet quite possibly will happen despite the complete evilness of Hillary and the Democrat Party.

Trump is obviously correct in assuming that there could well be Democrat voter fraud, ESPECIALLY given the Democrat plans to commit voter fraud released on video, just yesterday.

Oh, geez. This is just getting better and better. I don't think I will ever vote again. It is a farce. None of these politicians represent me. They represent themselves.

If only these santimonious hypocrites had been around for Bush-Gore! They would have screamed for Bush to accept the results of the "free and fair" election via the popular vote (rather than the Electoral College vote) and allowed Gore to be President as he deserved. There would have been no appeal to the Supreme Court contesting the "free and fair" election of Gore.

Sorry, I got carried away: of course, Gore immediately accepted that he had lost - N-O-T! And neither did these hypocrites, Democrats and Republicans alike. The current crop of naysayers also were alive and active politically during that election, so they can't credibly claim that it was "ancient history" (prior to their birth).
