Democrat Stacey Abrams claimed she won the race for governor in Georgia last year, despite election results showing she was soundly defeated by nearly 55,000 votes.
Abrams continued unwillingness to accept the election results is making Hillary Clinton seem gracious by comparison, and in the former First Lady’s own words is “a direct threat to our democracy.”
While her past statements on losing to Republican Brian Kemp have mostly focused on her ‘not losing’ the election, this is perhaps the first outright claim to having flat-out won.
“We had this little election back in 2018,” Abrams said before a crowd at the National Action Network. “And despite the final tally and the inauguration and the situation we find ourselves in, I do have a very affirmative statement to make.”
“We won,” she said, despite losing by 54,723 votes, despite not occupying the Georgia governor’s mansion, and despite what reality has dictated.

Abrams, continuing to play the role of grievance-monger like a champ, said the final vote tally was skewed due to “voter suppression” and a system “designed to oppress you.”

“Remember I told you about my opponent?” Abrams stated. “You see not only was he the Secretary of state he was also the architect of voter suppression.”
Voter suppression is code for making people prove they are who they are to protect the integrity of elections, something Democrats strongly oppose.
Abrams then goes on to explain why she refuses to concede in the election: Concession means to say something is right and true and proper…But you can’t trick me into saying it was right. pic.twitter.com/EkuBhulioZ

“We can work as hard as we want, we can fight rights, but if you’re fighting against the system that is designed to oppress you, sometimes you got to fight a little bit longer than you think,” she said.
Always the victim. It might as well be the next Democrat nominee’s – which incidentally could be Abrams – slogan for 2020.
Abrams not only lies with impunity, but she also seems to have a general misunderstanding of reality. She didn’t win the election, yet she continually pretends she did.
Last month, she was asked by a reporter if she is “ever going to concede.”
Abrams refused to utter a word, then went inside the conference she was attending and lied to everybody, saying she told the reporter “no.”
Stacey Abrams, fresh off her meeting with Joe Biden earlier today in DC, said someone outside asked if she’s ever going to concede the Georgia gubernatorial election.

Then there is the alternate reality where she insists politicians are supposed to graciously concede their races.
“Trump’s refusal to concede the election if he loses proves he is a petty man uninterested in our national stability,” she said weeks prior to the 2016 election.
So what does that make Abrams? Petty, uninterested in our national stability, a threat to our democracy, or just an unhinged reality denier?
The answer to that question is ‘yes.’

HEY ABRAMS WHY DON’T YOU TAKE A TRIP TO THE HOSPITAL TO GET THE CRAMP OUT AND EXCEPT THE FACT YOU WERE THE LOSER. NO BODY WANTED YOU SO GET USED TO IT
She is like a little girl that did not get her way and keeps ranting on about it.
Thank God Soros wasn’t able to steal that election and seat this insane nincompoop!!
Would you want a delusional person such as this as your Governor? Nope.
‘Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen. Nobody knows but Jesus.”
those who scream it are the ones doing it not just to themselves but to others too!!
It’s always like that.. One sees his own flaws best but tends to see it in another.. whatever flaws we possess is what we see in others.
Does she think that by continuing to say she won, that makes it true? If she really believes that she won, she is truly delusional and needs to seek mental help. Those who believe her are just as bad. They want to scream OPPRESSION by the white man, but in actuality, it’s those who scream it the loudest that are oppressing themselves. Move on Stacey–YOU LOST!
They truly are all delusional.
They live in an alternate mindset.
and as ugly as waters, pelosi, and hildabag.
that woman is not only brainless, she’s a sore loser
More colonials taking over.
