Hillary’s election denial bulls—t is just as delusional as Trump’s
Democrats hate election deniers.
Specifically, they hate election deniers named Donald Trump.
Why, they cry, can’t the sore loser man-baby stop whining about having the 2020 election “stolen” and just admit he was beaten fair and square by Joe Biden?
To be honest, they’ve got a good point.
For all his constant indignant fulminating, President Trump’s never produced any actual evidence that the 2020 election was “rigged,” as he’d like everyone to believe.
So I agree with the Democrats when they lambaste him for refusing to accept the cold, hard reality that he lost.
In fact, I told Trump this to his face in an interview for my Fox Nation show “Piers Morgan Uncensored” last year, saying he should stop his ridiculous, democracy-damaging claptrap, only for him to respond by calling me a fool seven times.
But the passionate, angry, almost demented way the Democrats go about attacking election denial might seduce you into the massive misapprehension that they feel the same way regardless of who’s doing the election denying.
In an MSNBC interview on Sunday with President Biden’s former White House press chief Jen Psaki, Hillary Clinton launched into her favorite subject: why she herself had an election robbed from her.
Yes, Hillary still resolutely believes that the only reason Trump beat her is because Russian President Vladimir Putin interfered in the 2016 election to stop her winning.
“The Russians have proved themselves to be quite adept at interfering and if he has a chance, he’ll do it again,” she said. “I don’t think, despite all of the deniers, there’s any doubt that he interfered in our election. Part of the reason he worked so hard against me is because he didn’t think that he wanted me in the White House.”
Of course, Clinton has never been able to prove her claims that Putin fixed it for Trump to win.
Instead, a lengthy investigation into supposed “Russia collusion” between Trump and Putin resulted in a gigantic nothingburger that established there was no election-fixing collusion.
But this hasn’t stopped his defeated opponent from continuing to peddle that lie, and refusing to admit she lost fairly.
“I believe he knows he is an illegitimate president,” Hillary declared in 2017.
Later, she said: “You can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you.”
And after Trump lost the 2020 election, and he and his supporters said the exact same thing about their election loss, she was enraged.
“We never thought we had to worry about domestic enemies,” she told “Morning Joe.” “We never thought we had to worry about people who didn’t believe in our democracy. Sadly, what we’ve seen over the last four years and especially since the election is that we have people in our own country who are doing Putin’s work. They are doing his work to sow distrust, to sow divisiveness, to give aid and comfort to those in our country who, for whatever reason, are being not only disruptive but very dangerous.”
Fine words, Hillary — perish the thought that anyone like you would do Putin’s dirty work by sowing dangerous distrust in the US democratic process!
The brazen hypocrisy is truly staggering.
This is a woman who has relentlessly and deliberately used Putin to mislead the American people into thinking the only reason she lost in 2016 was because Russia colluded with Trump.
And as we saw on Sunday, she’s still doing it now despite it being an established fact that Russia didn’t.
The truth is that Hillary Clinton lost in 2016 because Trump proved to be a more popular candidate than her to the American people due to the “most qualified candidate in presidential history” running a dreadful, elitist campaign.
Yet here she is, still blaming the beastly Russians for her humiliation, a tactic straight from the Trump school of reality denial.
You might think Jen Psaki, who has regularly criticized Trump for his stolen-election claims, would be equally upset when she had a former presidential candidate sitting right in front of her doing the same thing.
But that would assume Ms. Psaki is an impartial journalist applying the same rules to everyone, when in fact she’s a hyper-partisan Democratic activist.
So MSNBC viewers, who for years have been told by all the network’s hosts to believe Trump’s election denial is an evil affront to democracy, were presumably left thinking: “Wait, is election denial OK now, if it’s our side doing it?”
My favorite moment of the interview came when Clinton told Psaki about Trump: “You know, the thing about him — and I’m not the only one person who’s noticed this — is he engages in what psychologists call projection. So, whenever he accuses somebody of doing something, it’s almost guaranteed he’s doing it himself or he’s already done it.”
Psaki didn’t even crack a smile as her guest spewed a double standard so laugh-out-loud absurd, it would have left me a hysterical mess if I’d been the interviewer.
So let me say what Psaki should have said to her:
“Pipe down, Hillary, you flaming hypocrite. When it comes to election-denying bulls–t, you’re wallowing in the same woefully delusional swamp as Trump.”
