For John, BLUF: Apparently the Democrats have no long game. The election of Mr Trump is the signal of the Apocalypse. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Well, it is National Review. The Author is Mr Andrew C McCarthy. The dateline is Friday, 31 March 2017.
During the last Presidential Debate, back in October of last year, Mrs Clinton asked Candidate Trump if he would accept the outcome of the election. Mr Trump waffled.
A flabbergasted Clinton responded that she was shocked — horrified! — to hear Trump “talking down our democracy.” This was a top theme in her campaign’s closing days: The election was absolutely legitimate; Trump was traitorously condemnable for refusing to say so.So what changed? Not the intelligence. That was already available.
What changed was that Mr Trump won. This was incomprehensible to the Democrats, who then changed their tune on accepting the outcome of elections.
