Donald Trump Needs a Lesson in Humility and Patriotism From Al Gore
With all of Trump’s latest whining about a “rigged” election that hasn’t even occurred yet, it made me want to re-read Al Gore’s concession speech. Below are some standout blurbs that exhibits what an actual patriot sounds like.
Just moments ago, I spoke with George W. Bush and congratulated him on becoming the 43rd president of the United States. And I promised him that I wouldn’t call him back this time. I offered to meet with him as soon as possible so that we can start to heal the divisions of the campaign and the contest through which we’ve just passed.
I know that many of my supporters are disappointed. I am too. But our disappointment must be overcome by our love of country.
President-elect Bush inherits a nation whose citizens will be ready to assist him in the conduct of his large responsibilities. I, personally, will be at his disposal, and I call on all Americans — I particularly urge all who stood with us — to unite behind our next president.
Now the political struggle is over and we turn again to the unending struggle for the common good of all Americans and for those multitudes around the world who look to us for leadership in the cause of freedom.
None of us should expect anything this graceful and humble from Donald Trump on the evening of November 8th. Contrast Gore’s words above to Trump’s unhinged rants below:
The election is absolutely being rigged by the dishonest and distorted media pushing Crooked Hillary - but also at many polling places - SAD
Election is being rigged by the media, in a coordinated effort with the Clinton campaign, by putting stories that never happened into news!
Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me.Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!
This election is being rigged by the media pushing false and unsubstantiated charges, and outright lies, in order to elect Crooked Hillary!
The contrast is clear and wide.
