Democrats are furious because Donald Trump has refused to preemptively concede the presidential election to Hillary Clinton. During the third and final debate on Wednesday, Trump said he would keep us “in suspense” at to whether he would accept the outcome of the election, which he on numerous occasions has described as being “rigged” or potentially “stolen.”

Apparently, Democrats have a short memory, because it wasn’t so long ago that they were viciously complaining about a “rigged” and “stolen” election in 2000, the outcome of which many Democrats continue to dispute. Former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, for example, insisted just last month in an interview that former Vice President Al Gore had won the state of Florida in 2000, which is factually inaccurate.
