If Hillary wins in the expected landslide, will Trump’s massive ego allow him to concede? Or will he spend the rest of his life in an alternative universe insisting that a vast left-wing conspiracy has stolen the election from him, and that he is the real POTUS?October 28, 2016 11:12 am at 11:12 am #1188811
You mean like Gore?October 28, 2016 11:59 am at 11:59 am #1188812
hillary in expected landslide????have you checked polls lately??
I predict hillary will have the problem conceding!!October 28, 2016 12:13 pm at 12:13 pm #1188814
did Gore not concede?October 28, 2016 12:40 pm at 12:40 pm #1188815
Hmm… Can Clinton admit that she’s a criminal? And will Trump make good on his word when he said he would put her behind bars after he’s elected? Stay tuned.October 28, 2016 12:46 pm at 12:46 pm #1188816
I guess that depends on how you define “concede”. As far I can tell, he and the Democrats still insist that he won, and the election was stolen by SCOTUS.October 28, 2016 12:48 pm at 12:48 pm #1188817
mw13 – shouldn’t we learn from Tzidkiyahu HaMelech’s mistake and also from Baba ben Buta righteousness?
The koach hadebur was given to us to learn Torah and to encourage others to strive to be holy. Any other purpose has to be scrutinized thoroughly before opening our mouths.
I worry that you may have done more harm to yourself than to Trump. Perhaps consider closing this topic.
…and to every other Yid posting, let’s stay far away from bad mouthing either Presidential candidate. Nothing good can come from it.October 28, 2016 1:18 pm at 1:18 pm #1188818
“I guess that depends on how you define “concede”. “
Gore on 12/13/00:
“Now the U.S. Supreme Court has spoken. Let there be no doubt, while I strongly disagree with the court’s decision, I accept it. I accept the finality of this outcome which will be ratified next Monday in the Electoral College. And tonight, for the sake of our unity as a people and the strength of our democracy, I offer my concession. I also accept my responsibility, which I will discharge unconditionally, to honor the new President-elect and do everything possible to help him bring Americans together”
That is pretty much how I define concede. If Trump makes a similar speech that would be fine.October 28, 2016 2:30 pm at 2:30 pm #1188819
So give him a month after the election to do that.
(If he doesn’t, how exactly does that affect anyone?)October 28, 2016 3:04 pm at 3:04 pm #1188820
“So give him a month after the election to do that.”
a. I wouldnt hold my breath
b. Gore’s concession wasnt a month after the election was decided. There were legitimate questions regarding FLA which wasn’t decided until the Supreme court decided. Once they decided gore conceded the very next day. IF their are legitimate questions, Of course Trump shouldn’t concede. but the election being “rigged” is not a serious allegation.
“If he doesn’t, how exactly does that affect anyone?”
his supporters are often violent, many are armed. IF he calls for a revolution (I’m not saying he will) do you really not see a problem? while denying the fairness of an election isnt quite the same as calling for revolution, it certainly is close.October 28, 2016 3:09 pm at 3:09 pm #1188821
Trump has come out for increased funding to private schools; including Jewish yeshivas. Trump also calls on lowering Federal Taxes on companies & families. Granted, Hillary has more experience setting up servers; destroying victims of Bill Clinton’s crimes and getting paid outrageous speaking fees. So I’m obviously voting Trump.October 28, 2016 3:12 pm at 3:12 pm #1188822
The Supreme Court needed to decide because Gore filed a suit.
Yes, there’s a big difference between saying the system is rigged and calling for a revolt.October 28, 2016 3:13 pm at 3:13 pm #1188823
While it has become the “protocol” for the loser to concede, there is no law or rule that says they have to.October 28, 2016 3:40 pm at 3:40 pm #1188824
I dont follow
There is nothing wrong with filing a suit. If Trump has legitimate concerns regarding the election he absolutely should file suit. that is his right and even duty. But as his word carries influence among many claiming it is rigged without any basis , while not the same as calling for revolt, is dangerous.
(“The Supreme Court needed to decide because Gore filed a suit.” not quite accurate, wasnt it Bush who took it to the supreme court after the FLa supreme court called for a stae wide recount hence “Bush v Gore” (Though Gore did go to court first)
At any rate. the bottom line is Gore did in fact concede the election in 2000October 28, 2016 4:12 pm at 4:12 pm #1188825
There’s plenty of basis to think there’s a lot of voter fraud, more heavily to the Democrats’ side.October 30, 2016 4:03 am at 4:03 am #1188826
The answer to the opening poster’s question is, No. But we will probably have a chance to see for ourselves in less than 2 weeks.
And, thank you, ubiquitin, for posting some relevant facts.October 30, 2016 4:24 am at 4:24 am #1188827
Let me fill you in on some awesome news:-????? ?????=424=???? ?? ???
?????=255=???????=255=?????? which is a female member of Amolek.
So I think the FBI is doing us a huge service, and many undecideds are now going to vote for President Donald Trump.
BTW although President Donald Trump wishes to throw Hillary into jail which is exactly where she belongs, only a Judge in court has the authority & wherewithal to throw her into jail.October 30, 2016 4:55 am at 4:55 am #1188828
Can Trump admit to anything?October 30, 2016 6:07 am at 6:07 am #1188829
Everyone’s making such a big deal out of this and it’s ridiculous. A) Everyone knows voter fraud exists. B) As iscrimna pointed out, there’s no law mandating him to concede to the winner. C) It was some more exaggerated bluff, basically saying Hillary’s horrible and there’s no way he’ll let her become president.
Leave him alone.October 31, 2016 4:03 am at 4:03 am #1188830
A Trump supporter in Des Moines was arrested when she tried to vote for him a second time. She said the polls are rigged and she was afraid her first vote would be switched to Clinton. It’s not clear if she thought her second vote would also be switched.November 2, 2016 9:30 pm at 9:30 pm #1188831
He’s going to win. How can anyone vote for someone under FBI investigation? It’s unprecedented and insane.November 2, 2016 11:32 pm at 11:32 pm #1188832
Gore conceded initially, and then withdrew his concession. Apparently, he didn’t hold of yi’ush.
