For John, BLUF: The question was if Mr Trump could accept the election outcome. It should have been could the Left accept the election outcome. Nothing to see here; just move along.
A little context.

The New York Times finds President-elect Donald Trump’s appointment of Stephen Bannon as counselor to the president to be so alarming that it devoted both its lead front page news article yesterday, a second front-page news article, and its lead editorial to the development, airing the worry that, as one of the news articles put it, Mr. Bannon “will bring anti-Semitic, nationalist and racist views to the West Wing.”Not likely.
It is sad what a great newspaper has come to.
Read the article.
