Obama to Trump: 'Stop whining' about rigged elections
by Theresa Seiger, Cox Media Group National Content Desk
6 minutes ago
WASHINGTON --
President Barack Obama told Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to "stop whining" with patently false claims of rigged elections while addressing the public Tuesday with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.

Obama brushed off Trump's assertions that if he loses the race for the White House in November it will likely be because of voter fraud. Trump has ramped up his claims in the days since a 2005 "Access Hollywood" video of the GOP presidential hopeful speaking in a vulgar way about women sent his campaign careening.
"The election is absolutely being rigged by the dishonest and distorted media pushing Crooked Hillary - but also at many polling places," Trump wrote Sunday in a Tweet. "SAD."
https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/787699930718695425
"I have never seen in my lifetime, or in modern political history, any presidential candidate trying to discredit elections and the elections process before even elections have taken place," Obama said Tuesday in response to questions from reporters. "It's unprecedented."
He implied that Trump was "whining" because of his slipping poll numbers.

"That doesn't really show the kind of leadership and toughness that you want out of a president," Obama said. "He started whining before the game's even over. If whenever things are going badly for you and you lose you start blaming somebody else, then you don't have what it takes to be in this job."
Trump took to Twitter on Monday to reinforce his claims, writing that the Republican establishment was ignoring that "Of course there is large scale voter fraud happening on and before election day."
https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/787995025527410688
PolitiFact gave the statement its "pants on fire" rating, meaning it has no basis in fact.
"The larger point I want to emphasize is that there is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America's elections," Obama said, pointing at how decentralized the process is and the sheer number of votes involved.
"There's no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there are instances in which that would happen this time. And so, I would advise Mr. Trump to stop whining and go make his case to try to get votes," Obama said.
Trump did not immediately respond to the comments.

Gotta love this. One of the whiniest people on the planet, and certainly the whiniest President of my lifetime advising someone to stop whining. Typical Obama.

Curious what Obama has to say about coordinated efforts to disrupt GOP rallies, block interstates providing access to those events, sending in paid operatives to provoke Trump supporters, ect.

Probably nothing.

You are correct. Since those things online occurred in your tiny little mind, he will have nothing to say about it. The only political blocking of an interstate was Christie blocking the George Washington Bridge.


Oh, BTW genius, it is etc. not ect. LOL

Let's keep in mind that whining about voter "suppression" is perfectly OK. Everybody knows it's next to impossible to get an ID or find a polling place in the US. Just too difficult!

You mean those things that have actually happened and can be clearly documented, as opposed to things that Trump and others are making up which have no (as in zero, nada, nothing) data to support them? Yes, perfectly ok indeed.

From a friend of mine...

"I've worked as an election official for several years now. I've participated in state, local and national elections. I've even participated in a recount, and I've had observers from both parties literally standing behind me as I did so. I sit at my post in a totally redundant position, because always sitting next to me is a member of the opposite party performing the same function. There is plenty to do, so I wouldn't want to do it alone. Plus, I know that nothing underhanded is going on because we're all there to make sure nothing does. I've sworn an oath to make sure nothing does, as does every other person in the room with me. There is no animosity between us because we're neighbors, not enemies. We are also both Americans and we love our democracy and would do anything we could to protect the sacred right to vote we all possess. If there is ever any person who should not be there we have local police officers there to help enforce our state's elections laws. The implication that I or any of the hundreds of thousands of other locally appointed elections officials and police officers would stand by and allow any election we administer to be "rigged" is insulting. I can assure you that it would not happen at my polling place, and I am confident that it won't happen anywhere else either."

Cases of voter fraud haven't been documented?

The goal in a free society should be to have everyone participate in the voting process; not eliminate the rights of those who wouldn't vote for a particular party. Research just about any state where the GOP is in control and let us know the findings, and leave the snark at home Check out Arizona & North Carolina as proud examples of GOP legislature actions. Be proud to make voting more difficult and Make America Great Again.

alloak - You're probably more than OK with the following:

eliminating polling places

reduce periods of early voting

eliminated same-day voter registration

eliminate pre-registration for 16- and 17-year-olds.

cut out-of-precinct voting

etc.

I've never had any problem WHATSOEVER casting my votes. It's been easy. Maybe you're asking the wrong person, because I can't think of a single example of having any difficulty and I'm a totally unhinged moron and nut case.

Well, it really isn't about you. It was a question about suppression tactics in general. It was a question posed to you which you didn't answer.

Just an FYI - several of the items that you deflected from were ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court for the North Carolina case. But it didn't stop those fair minded legislators from trying to limit voting. NC is just typical of other GOP led states. Wonder why they're all trying to enact this type of legislation since it's not impacting alloak. Go figure.

DEMOCRATS PAYING PEOPLE $1,500 TO PROTEST AND CREATE PROBLEMS

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3849570/They-paid-1-500-Trump-says- Hillary-s-campaign-PAYING-protesters-disrupt-rallies-video-expos-catches-or ganizer-boasting-team-country-does-that.html

'They were paid $1,500 each!' Trump says Hillary's campaign is PAYING protesters and giving them IPHONES to disrupt his rallies after video exposť catches organizer boasting of 'a whole team' that does it

Donald Trump told two rally audiences in Colorado that liberal protesters have been paid to disrupt his rallies 'I sort of always knew,' he said, describing a hidden-camera video exposť that showed left-wing organizers discussing it

Video package came from Project Veritas Action, a right-wing group that says it has more footage implicating Hillary Clinton

One consultant appearing in the video describes a money trail that starts with the Clinton campaign and ends with the group that 'executes the s**t on the ground'

'They pay $1,500 and they give iPhones to everybody if you go in and disrupt!' he claimed in Grand Junction: 'These are bad people!'

Hillary Clinton's campaign, Scott Foval says on video, 'pays the DNC. DNC pays Democracy Partners, Democracy Partners pays the Foval Group, the Foval Group executes the s**t on the ground.'

'It doesn't matter what the friggin' legal and ethics people say,' Foval concludes. 'We need to win this motherf*****r.'

He says his staff trains protesters 'on how to get themselves into a situation on tape, on camera, that we can use later.'


REMARKS: Whining? Get him a bullhorn!

Will the elections be rigged? Yes. have they been in the past? According to some of the activist spokesmen, Yes, they have been for the last fifty years. Will America ever be run by ethical, honest people who represent other good people?

they keep talking about a rigged election....which is bogus....but i think.....what they are doing is setting the table to tighten up the identification standards, which tends to favor conservatives. they are preparing for the 2020 elections with this line of attack

Kind of a nebulous argument at this point. It's laughable, taking into consideration that the DNC conspired to rig their own primary! Hence, the election has already been rigged.

So if elections are rigged, did Trump win a bunch of rigged primaries? Did all of those GOP members of Congress sitting in the majority that you go on about all the time, did they all win rigged elections?

If Trump wins, is it all still rigged?

When a candidate starts talking about rigged elections, it's a concession that they already know they lost. If he was up in the polls there would be not talk of rigged elections.

Donna Brazile has been nailed by her own emails offering debate questions to the Clinton campaign in advance.

Her response is suitable for the Whipping Post. It's meaningless because the emails were stolen.

Perfect.
