RUSH: We have sound bites from Trump in Delaware, Ohio. He’s still tweaking ’em. He said, “I don’t want to be misunderstood. I promise I will accept the results of the election, if I win.”
TRUMP: Ladies and gentlemen, I want to make a major announcement today. I would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all of the people of the United States that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election, if I win.
TRUMP: John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, was quoted in WikiLeaks as saying illegal immigrants could vote as long as they have their driver’s license.
TRUMP: What I’m saying is don’t be naive, folks, don’t be naive. One of the big issues that came up last night was the fact that the Clinton campaign has the paid people to disrupt violently our rallies and to incite absolute, total bedlam. This is criminal behavior that violates centuries of tradition of peaceful Democratic elections. A campaign like Clinton’s that will incite violence is truly a campaign that will do anything to win.
RUSH: By the way, something I noticed last night, she didn’t deny all of this. All she said was (imitating Clinton), “It’s the Russians, the Russians are trying to steal our election, the Russians are trying, I’ve never seen it before, the Russians are releasing emails, and it’s not fair, it’s not right.” People bitching and moaning at Trump are actually at the same time complaining about a rigged election, and it’s the Russians doing it, it’s Putin. If I’m Putin I gotta be having the time of my life. I’m sitting there in the Kremlin smoking a cigar, having some vodka, and I’m watching the American Democrat Party give me credit for screwing them up.
“Yeah, the Russians, the Russians are interceding in the American election, the precious American election, it’s never happened before.”
They don’t deny anything. Hillary didn’t deny it when Trump even accused her of being behind all these imaginary women that came forward and said Trump was grabbing ’em and doing this and that to ’em. Didn’t deny any of it. Didn’t deny what was in the WikiLeaks. And Donna Brazile (imitating Brazile), “That stuff was produced by criminals. I’m being persecuted. I’m not answering that.” For once these people are having to deal with the stuff they dish out and there are a lot of people celebrating that. There are a lot of people on Trump’s side applauding that. It’s worth it for that alone.
RUSH: Now, I mentioned earlier that anybody in their right mind knows that Donald Trump was not promising a civil war. He was not promising to blow up the country. He was not promising to not accept the results if he lost. And these people know it, folks.
The people stirring this up know full well. And I know this because I know how they really know things I say when they act totally outraged and make a big two-week deal out of various things. They know. And here is Trump demonstrating it. This is from today in Delaware, Ohio, and you can’t say it any better than this, exactly what he means.
TRUMP: I was asked a question about whether I would agree in advance to concede the results on election night if for some reason we should lose, which we’re not going to lose.
TRUMP: And that was sort of an unprecedented question. If Algore or George Bush had agreed three weeks before the election to concede the results and waived their right to a legal challenge or a recount, then there would be no Supreme Court case and no Gore vs. Bush or Bush vs. Gore, and there have been numerous other cases. In effect, I’m being asked to waive centuries of legal precedent designed to protect the voters. Of course I would accept a clear election result, but I would also reserve my right to contest or file a legal challenge in the case of a questionable result.
RUSH: Of course. Why should he concede that? Why should he foreclose that? Why should anybody running against the Democrats foreclose that, given what has already happened in this cycle? Given what we’ve learned from the Project Veritas videos of James O’Keefe, given what we’ve learned from the WikiLeaks email dumps, consisting of things from John Podesta. Smart thing to do.
