One the most misguided beliefs I’ve encountered among many supporters of Donald Trump has been this idea that people who strongly oppose the successor to President Obama are just “sore losers because we lost.”
That is not what this is about.
While I’m not going to claim that I speak for everyone on the left, I have had more than enough discussions with people to know that the disdain shown by many on the left toward Trump’s “win” has almost nothing to do with being “sore losers because we lost.”
Though I do find it extremely ironic that people who support the biggest crybaby I’ve ever witnessed are accusing other people of “whining because they lost.” They certainly didn’t seem to have a problem with Trump whining about the possibility of losing months before the election.
I can only imagine the toddler-like hissy fit he’d still be throwing had he lost. Especially if Hillary Clinton “won” the same way he did: Receiving 3 million fewer votes, while getting help from a Russian cyber attack aimed at undermining the integrity of our election.
I’d also like to point out another rather ironic hypocrisy of people who support a man who cries “FAKE!” whenever his bullshit is called out, who often claims there are any number of ridiculous conspiracies against him, accusing other people of being “sore losers.”
New Rule: When you support a man-child who constantly claims something is rigged, or pushes some sort of asinine conspiracy whenever his propaganda is exposed — you don’t get to accuse others of whining about anything.
The truth is, Trump and his supporters are fragile little snowflakes who have complete meltdowns whenever someone tells the truth about what a pathological liar he is.
That being said, the extremely negative reaction to Donald Trump succeeding Barack Obama isn’t because a Republican won — it’s because Donald Trump “won.”
I definitely wouldn’t call myself a fan of Ohio Governor John Kasich. I’m sure if he and I sat down to discuss our stances on several major issues we’d disagree a whole lot more than we’d agree. But I wouldn’t have feared a “President Kasich.” I wouldn’t have been happy that a Republican won, but I can humbly accept losing.
The same goes for Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz. I wouldn’t have been excited about the prospects of any of them winning, but I would have viewed them as a legitimate president.
It’s not losing to a Republican that has many on the left so disgusted. It’s the fact that the man who succeeded Barack Obama is a blatant racist, conspiracy theorist, self-admitted sexual predator, sexist, and someone many of us believe might have committed treason on his way to the White House.
It’s not about being “sore losers” because a Republican was elected. That’s a childish way to dismiss adult concerns over the most incompetent and corrupt person to ever be “elected” to the Oval Office.
This is about Donald Trump only “winning” because he got help from a cyber attack launched by the very country he refuses to criticize; an attack that was ordered by an anti-American tyrant he’s repeatedly praised. This is about a man who “won” while pandering to racism, bigotry, and hate. This is about a man whose sheer incompetence makes him one of our country’s top national security threats. This is about a man who “won” despite losing to his opponent by 3 millions votes, who had 54% of the country vote against him.
While you all continue to falsely believe that this reaction to his “win” is because we’re “sore losers,” doing so only confirms how simple-minded many of us believe his supporters are.
Many of us don’t view him as an illegitimate president as some sort of “payback” for the way Republicans treated Barack Obama when he was elected. We don’t view him as a legitimate president because:
- He lost the popular vote by 3 million.
- 54% of the country voted against him.
- He’s praised our enemies while attacking U.S. intelligence officials.
- He was the most pro-Russian candidate in history during a time when Russia did its best to help him get elected.
- Reports have surfaced where intelligence agencies from other countries are concerned Trump’s been compromised by Russia.
- While he’s gone after and criticized an endless list of people, organizations and countries — he still refuses to condemn Russia.
- His campaign and cabinet had/have quite a few people with ties to Russia.
- With all these rumors swirling about possible financial conflicts of interest with Russia, he refuses to release his tax returns.
- His behavior isn’t that of a man who’s innocent of accusations that he might have committed treason, it’s that of a man who’s terrified of the truth being made public.
This isn’t about being “sore losers” over a Republican candidate winning. It’s about Donald Trump — a possible traitor — “winning.”
