FOX: Hillary Clinton visited Georgetown University’s Institute for Women, Peace and Security on Monday and presented an award named after herself to Nadia Murad, a former ISIS prisoner; and Wai Nu, a former political prisoner from Myanmar.
During her speech, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee continued many of the themes she had spoken about during and after the campaign – the power of women; the inequalities they face; and, of course, how terribly unfair the world has been to Hillary Clinton.
During a pivotal moment in the presidential campaign, Donald Trump was asked if he would concede the election should he lose to Clinton. He responded that he “will keep you in suspense.”
Clinton called his answer “horrifying” and said he was “talking down democracy.” I was also critical of Trump’s comment. The idea that a candidate for president wouldn’t accept the legitimacy of the eventual winner was indeed horrifying.
But since then, Hillary Clinton has consistently complained about President Trump’s legitimacy. She alludes to the election having been stolen and engages in the same type of attack on our democracy that she accused candidate Trump of making with his comments.
