Democrat Stacey Abrams, viewed by many as a legitimate candidate for president, claimed she is “not delusional” before declaring herself the victor in the 2018 election for governor in Georgia, a race she lost by over 54,000 votes.
If that’s not considered ‘delusional,’ we’re not sure she even knows what the word means.
At a luncheon in Houston this past weekend, Abrams stuck to her typical complaint that voter suppression affected the outcome of her election, a claim not supported by actual evidence.
She then revealed that she has yet to achieve any grasp on reality when she made this statement:
“I’m here to tell you a secret that makes Breitbart and Tucker Carlson go crazy: We won. I am not delusional. I know I am not the governor of Georgia – possibly yet.”
Let’s see – You think you won an election you didn’t win. You think you might be the governor of Georgia, possibly. And you think it’s all a secret that has ‘yet’ to be discovered.
We’d say that’s textbook delusion.
Refuses to Be a Good Sport
Abrams also told the crowd in attendance that she refuses to be a “good sport” about the election results.
“If you want to run for office again you’ve got to concede the election so that everyone knows that you’re a good sport,” she said to an adoring crowd. “I am not.”

Abrams refusal to accept reality and concede an election she lost well over a year ago has to be concerning … to Nancy Pelosi.
The House Speaker recently told the New York Times that she’s concerned President Trump would not accept the legitimacy of an election loss in 2020.
“We have to inoculate against that, we have to be prepared for that,” she advised.
Look Within Your Own Party
Not only has Abrams spent months declaring she actually won an election she didn’t win, but former 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has spent two years contesting the results of her own election.
It was just days ago that she said the White House was “stolen” from her.
In offering advice to this year’s crop of Democrat candidates, Hillary claimed: “You can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you.”
That this party has the audacity to continue questioning the President on whether or not he’ll accept election results is, in a word, delusional.
