Remember when Hillary Clinton said this just days before the 2016 election:
Donald Trump refused to say that he’d respect the results of this election.
That’s a direct threat to our democracy.
— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) October 24, 2016
Ever since November of 2016, Democrats have added “unless it’s the Democrat who loses” to Hillary’s tweet. Kamala Harris had a two-fer over the weekend with this pander-palooza of a statement designed to rile up the Dem base:
Sen. @KamalaHarris speaks to Detroit @NAACP: "Let's say this loud and clear — without voter suppression, @StaceyAbrams would be the governor of Georgia, @AndrewGillum is the governor of Florida. So the truth is we need a new Voting Rights Act." pic.twitter.com/j37Rjkhcmb

That’s nothing short of shameless:
When Dems say Trump is a “threat to our Democracy” and “undermining Democratic norms” show them this.
What a dangerously deranged party. https://t.co/4WSGsc16yh

More dangerous talk from people obsessed with power and unable to handle defeat. https://t.co/h0HfVePzVe

And it’s quite possible we haven’t seen anything yet.
Yelling something doesn't make it true

Lying, pandering and sore loserdom are prerequisites in the Dem field https://t.co/BB1Wh3QTWc

Abrams herself has talked about the high turnout in Georgia for the gubernatorial election, but “voter suppression,” or something.
“Refusing to accept the outcome of an election is a threat to democracy itself” – every Democrat on November 7, 2016. https://t.co/zVJ8pnlSHJ

If the job went to the person with the second most votes… sure. But weird thing to talk about. https://t.co/tGTPklbWPg

Can Dems start speaking up about this stuff being dangerous? Please? https://t.co/SHUJDMUfv6

Not being challenged on this statement by anyone in media ( I don't say journalism anymore ) continually reinforces how much they suck. https://t.co/0g1CTW9079

Harris won’t be challenged on it, but if Trump takes issue with what she said, at least the media will be able to take another “Republicans pounce” approach.
