Donald Trump Warns Vote Could Be ‘Rigged’
Trump is preparing his supporters for a coming loss, but not in a good way. He’s setting the table for the ignorant rubes in the GOP to consume another long lasting myth that will keep their anger and bile flowing, because that’s the only way that people like Trump can hold their attention post election and keep the dim bulbs donating.
He told a rally in Columbus, Ohio, that he had heard “more and more” that the contest would be unfair. He offered no immediate evidence.
At another event he called Democratic rival Hillary Clinton “the devil”.
Mr Trump has come under fire from across the political divide for remarks he made about the parents of a US Muslim soldier killed in action.
On the forthcoming vote, he told supporters “I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged, I have to be honest”.
Note this ominous threat from Stone in the Washington post:
Meanwhile, longtime Trump confidante Roger Stone is explicitly encouraging Trump to make this case to his supporters. “I think we have widespread voter fraud, but the first thing that Trump needs to do is begin talking about it constantly,” Stone told a friendly interviewer, adding that Trump should start saying this: “If there’s voter fraud, this election will be illegitimate, the election of the winner will be illegitimate, we will have a constitutional crisis, widespread civil disobedience, and the government will no longer be the government.”
Stone also said: “I think he’s gotta put them on notice that their inauguration will be a rhetorical, and when I mean civil disobedience, not violence, but it will be a bloodbath.”
