Obama Was Right in 2016: The Election Wasn’t Rigged
Feb 20, 2018
RUSH: Go back and grab audio sound bite number 3. I want you to hear this again. This is Obama, October 18th, 2016. This is like three weeks before the election in the White House Rose Garden. He’s with the Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi, and they’re having a joint presser. The question comes from the Drive-Bys about Trump telling his supporters the election’s rigged and all that, and Obama is flat-out ticked off at that. And this is what he said.
OBAMA: I have never seen in my lifetime or in modern political history any presidential candidate trying to discredit the elections and the election process before votes have even taken place. It’s unprecedented. It happens to be based on no facts. … [T]here is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections, in part, because they are so decentralized and the numbers of votes involved. There is no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there are instances in which that will happen this time. And so I’d invite Mr. Trump to stop whinin’ and go try to make his case to get votes.
RUSH: Three weeks before the election: no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections. Three weeks later Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and the entire American Drive-By Media did a 180 and started doing just that and ignored what their revered leader had said three weeks prior. Obama’s right here, by the way. Impossible to change the outcome of an election like they did.
