'University of California-Irvine election law professor Rick Hasen said, "Our democracy is a fragile thing which depends upon accepting the rules of the game."'
Mediaite.com reports that Joe Scarborough of Morning Joe on MSNBC had a different take, quoting him as saying, ""How many people in Scranton, Pennsylvania care about what he said in that answer compared to people in news rooms that are whimpering and whining with their, you know, soy lattes?"
and further, Mediaite reports Scarborough said,
'"I think for elites and media people ["] to try to boil that entire debate down to that one answer, that's very predictable," he said. The notion that Trump said he would challenge the election was a media fiction, Scarborough insisted. "He never said that! Which is extraordinary -- the leap that all the media has made," he said.'The list is long and deep. This message, that the election system is trustworthy, is a core part of keeping the crooked corporate system up and running. If millions of people start questioning our election process, if they question Hillary's win, who knows where it will go? One thing I am sure of. We need more people waking up to the reality that the system IS broken, that the system has been rigged for a long time, that big corporations and the plutocrats have been at war with the middle class. Bill Moyers said it 13 years ago. It's even worse now, and a big part of the reason it's worse is because most Americans, especially liberals, the ones who supported Hillary in the primary, have not awakened to the reality.
It's freaking the powers that be out that a presidential candidate is speaking the truth about the system.
I can't bring myself to vote for Clinton or Trump, but at least Trump is bringing some truth to the process. It's no surprise that the powers that be are trying to make Trump look crazy.
