People pointing to Al Gore taking the high road and conceding in 2000 really takes the cake. He challenged the results of the election, literally dragging out the process 40 days before he took the “high road”. And you still have Democrats saying Bush stole that election, even though the NYT own recount showed Bush won Florida.
I mention this because NYT’s own Tom Friedman tweeted out just this… that Gore took a bullet for the country in 2000 but Trump won’t…
And people actually think the media aren’t biased for Dems?
A. Al Gore won the recount in Florida. So he was right for dragging out the process and the election was absolutely stolen from him by Bush and the Supreme court.
B. If Gore had won the original count in Florida and the margin was the same, Bush would have wanted a recount as well.
C. The two situations are not equitable. The 2000 election came down to one state and it was extremely close in that state. It would have been understandable for either Bush or Gore to want a recount and drag it out. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to make sure the count is correct in a such a close all or nothing situation in a single state. But in this situation, Biden leads in four of the five remaining battleground states and the trend is in his favor in all of them. He’s about to secure an electoral college blowout. Trump has no chance at winning and still refuses to concede. I call that having no class and being a fat cry baby. Nothing new for Trump.
D. Anybody who seriously thinks Trump actually believes the election was stolen from him is an idiot. Trump is a world class liar and bullshitter. When he’s in private, he fucking laughing at his supporters who buy his bullshit. It’s disturbing so many people are fanatics over this clown and truly believe every word that comes out of his mouth when to the rest of us, it’s obvious he’s full of shit and doesn’t actually believe what he’s saying. Some people just aren’t wired right.
