Hillary Clinton: I Only Lost the Election Because It Was Rigged by Voter Suppression

I trust everyone remembers the hysteria the media engaged in -- especially people like Jake Tapper -- claiming that Donald Trump's doubts about the fairness of our elections threatened to undermine our republic.

But now that Hillary Clinton isn't expressing a hypothetical concern, but is flatly asserting that the election was rigged, hey, maybe she's got a point, right?



So let me tell my favorite Jake Tapper story again. I think this is the first time I've mentioned it in a main post, rather than in a comment.

You may have heard that Jake Tapper is a deranged obsessive and near-stalker when it comes to hounding his Twitter critics with Nasty Jake DMs. (DMs are Direct Messages, private messages that no one but the sender and addressee see.)

DM abuse that sometimes ends with torrents of profanity.

I've gotten so many Nasty Jake DMs I had to unfollow or block him (or both; I forget), thinking that would block his DMs (it didn't).

Then I escalated, telling him, "Do not DM me any longer. You are being specifically told your DMs are not wanted. I will tell you further that if you continue with this DM harassment, your DMs are not private and will be enthusiastically shared publicly, so that everyone can see your behavior."

I did tell him he could contact me publicly-- so that people could see the bullshit claims he was making. But I was tired of the "I'm going to keep my bullshit reputational management efforts secret."

No, public or nothing.

It didn't work, though.

This was shocking to me -- he didn't even stop after that. He just tried to keep it more even-tempered so that the DMs, if revealed, wouldn't be quite as embarrassing.

Anyway:

Back when I was on Twitter, after Trump was elected and when Hillary Clinton and her media supporters were advancing their "Hillary really won, but Russia stole the election" storyline, I saw a story on a news network that Hillary Clinton claimed at a fundraiser that Russia had hacked our "vote."

This was a major conspiracy theory Rubicon to cross -- Democrats usually used vaguer terms like "interfered with our election," referring to the scary-influential $150,000 in FaceBook ads. Or talked about hacking the election generally, meaning, "hacked John Podesta's email account using the silliest most basic trick an eight year old would know."

But now Hillary Clinton was alleging that Russia changed our vote totals.

Because I knew Jake Tapper was one of the Leftwing TV Moralists who had screamed and cried the loudest when Trump suggested the election might be rigged, I wrote something like "For some reason I don't think CNN will be decrying Hillary Clinton's claim that the vote was actually hacked by Russia."

Jake Tapper, you might have heard, is an absolute obsessive about protecting his Twitter Image, and even protecting CNN's Twitter Image as that reflects on him, and within moments DM'd me demading, "Cite?"

Jake Tapper uses the "Cite?" rebuttal the way all leftwingers use it. It's their way of saying "You're lying, so I don't have to respond to this." But every time you actually do provide the citation, it changes absolutely nothing -- they do not concede the point, they just move on to their next defense.

It's a pointless exercise.

But in this case I had the cite very handy. Very handy indeed.

In fact, Jake Tapper also had the cite handy, but apparently he was too busy patrolling Twitter for Negative Mentions of Jake Tapper or CNN to notice.

See, I never watched Jake Tapper's show, but for some reason (I can't remember why) I was watching it on this day. Or at least I had it on in the background.

So at around 4:25 pm or so, Jake Tapper, on his very own show, introduced a report from some CNN "reporter" who dutifully reported that Hillary Clinton had claimed Russia hacked the vote.

After the package, they went to commercial.

At around 4:27, I posted my tweet, and at about 4:28, Jake Tapper demanded: "Cite?"

So my answer was simple: "Jake, my cite is your own show. You literally just ran a package including a videotape of Hillary Clinton claiming the 'vote was hacked' two minutes ago. It literally just happened. It literally just happened on a screen your face was tilted towards."

Jake Tapper said something like "Oh I'm so busy in the studio" or whatever.

And I'm thinking: "You little narcisisstic, megalomaniacal, Twitter-addicted OCD freak."

He's super-busy in the studio -- busy patrolling Twitter for aspersions on the good name of Jake Tapper.

I mean, I know Jake Tapper has low ratings, and basically the people who watch him are just his Twitter Beta Orbiters hoping for a shout-out or whatever, but shouldn't he at least be expected to watch his own show? Especially while he's performing it?

But no, this little pissant is so busy scouring Twitter for negative mentions he introduces news packages which he apparently hasn't watched previously nor read the script for, and then doesn't even bother watching the news package he's running on his own show.

He's just sitting there on Twitter doing Vanity Searches for his name or CNN.

Even when he's on the air.

Now, a lot of people have Nasty Jake DM stories, but I bet you very few have a Nasty Jake DM story like this.

Or who knows -- maybe a lot of people do. I can't imagine this was the only time someone caught Jake Tapper doing some Twitter Reputational Management when he was on-air and supposedly on CNN's clock.
