Will Clinton Challenge the Election Results?

She's lied to herself and others so often, she seems to believe she really was robbed.

Hillary Clinton is the sorest of losers. As we have recounted time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time again (and those are just the instances we bothered with), Clinton blames everyone and everything but herself for her election loss. In fact, she’s lied to herself and others so often that she’s now evidently pondering a challenge to the election results.

During her umpteenth What Happened book tour interview, she was asked if she would “rule out questioning the legitimacy of the election.” She responded, “No, I would not rule it out.” As Gary Bauer muses, “It would not surprise me at all if somewhere in New York City, Los Angeles or Chicago, there is an office of left-wing legal eagles scheming to use the courts to overturn the election.”

Remember after the second presidential debate, in which Donald Trump demurred on accepting the election results, how Clinton and her Leftmedia cohorts went nuts? And that was after all Democrats and the media had done to rig the election in Clinton’s favor. When that didn’t work, leftists came down with a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, vowing to #Resist everything he did. Now Clinton is giving voice to their greatest hope — that they’ll challenge the election results and wake up to find it was all a bad dream.

This isn’t really new for Clinton, though. It took a 2:00 a.m. phone call from Barack Obama on election night to convince her to concede. And she’s spent every day since either dishing out blame or reminding people that she won the popular vote and thus we should ditch the Electoral College. Wrong — the Founders’ wise creation saved the nation from being forced to abide the decision of a couple million Californians. That’s right; if it weren’t for the Golden State, Trump would’ve won the popular vote too.

So keep that all in mind as Clinton rages in spoiled and entitled disbelief.

Update: Or never mind: “I think no one, including me, is saying we will contest the election,” Clinton later clarified. “I’m in the very large group of people who believe that, you know, there’s no legal basis, no constitutional basis for that.” As if constitutional basis stopped her from anything else.
