Trump Already Preparing for Defeat

Here's a story from Talking Points Memo about some comments from Trump and Roger Stone today:

"Trump: 'I'm Afraid' The General Election's 'Gonna Be Rigged'

"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," (longtime Trump advisor) Stone said. He also promised a "bloodbath" if the Democrats attempt to "steal" the election."

So they are already preparing to lose, and they are beginning the active incitement of violence and subversion on the part of their deranged supporters when that happens.

We all know that there is essentially no such thing as voter fraud, but the country has faced massive Republican attempts to rig elections in recent decades.

Could Trump incite any kind of widespread violence if he loses?  I just don't know at this point, but I'm not betting against it.

Oh, they are so full of shit. The only case for voter fraud will be if Trump wins, and he is not smart enough to pull that off, and the republican establishment will not do it for him. Trump loses in November because he is supported by losers only.

You can take that to the bank!

The only case for voter fraud will be whether or not Trump wins. I'm sure you agree with me that if he does lose, it will not be because he didn't try hard enough to cheat.
