Two-time presidential campaign loser Hillary Clinton once again suggested Donald Trump stole the election in 2016 and will need an “overwhelming” defeat to prevent him from doing it again.
Clinton made the remarks during her highly anticipated speech to the Democratic National Convention (DNC) this week.
Alluding to her own stunning loss, the former Secretary of State under Barack Obama warned that President Trump could lose the popular vote and still be reelected – a rather simple concept known as the Electoral College.
“Don’t forget: Joe and Kamala can win by 3 million votes and still lose — take it from me,” Clinton grumbled. “We need numbers so overwhelming Trump can’t sneak or steal his way to victory.”

Did Trump ‘Steal’ The Election?
Listen, Hillary – it’s not ‘stealing’ just because your campaign was too stupid to understand the difference between a popularity contest and how the electoral process works in the United States.
It isn’t ‘sneaking’ a victory because your opponent decided to physically campaign in key battleground states while your advisers dumped millions of dollars into Democrat strongholds in an attempt to run up the popular vote tally.

Isn’t it well past time Hillary accepted her defeat?
Even Stacey Abrams would be covering her face in shame at Clinton’s unwillingness to admit she lost the election fair and square.
Will Trump Leave If He Loses the Election?
Aside from a perpetual lack of grace, Clinton’s comments are further insinuating the need for such an overwhelming defeat of President Trump that he can’t attempt to hold onto power by refusing to leave office.
It is a dangerous conspiracy theory that has been spread by several Democrats in the event that their candidate, Joe Biden, actually loses in 2020.
It is paving the way for another four years of refusing to accept Trump as the leader of the free world.
It is a rejection of the peaceful transfer of power that made America the greatest lower-case ‘d’ democracy in the history of mankind.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) claimed the President’s use of federal law enforcement in response to violence in Portland is a “trial run” for when he refuses to accept his election loss.

Even Biden himself has alleged that the military may need to step in and forcibly remove Trump from office.
“I promise, I am absolutely convinced they [the military] will escort him from the White House with great dispatch,” Biden told Comedy Central when asked if he’s thought of the possibility that the President would refuse to leave.
It’s a song we heard a thousand times before during the previous election. Trump won’t accept the election results and that is a “direct threat to democracy.”
Reality has shown that it is the Democrats who try to sneak and steal their way to victory while refusing to accept defeat.
