President Obama condemned Donald Trump’s “rigged election” claims, describing these remarks as “dangerous,” at a campaign rally for Hillary Clinton on Thursday in Miami Gardens, Fla.
“When you try to sow the seeds of doubt in people’s minds about the legitimacy of our election, that undermines our democracy,” he told the crowd.
“When you suggest rigging or fraud without a shred of evidence, when last night at the debate, Trump becomes the first major party nominee in American history to suggest that he will not concede despite losing… that is not a joking matter,” Obama declared.
Well, there’s one huge problem- Obama did the EXACT same thing back in 2008 where he warned his sheeple about voter fraud and suggested that Republicans could try to sway the election in their favor.
“Well, I tell you what it helps in Ohio, that we got Democrats in charge of the machines,” Obama said regarding the threat of election-rigging.
He continued, “Whenever people are in power, they have this tendency to try to tilt things in their direction. That’s why we’ve got to have, I believe, a voting rights division in the Justice Department that is nonpartisan, and that is serious about investigating cases of voter fraud.”
“That’s why we need paper trails on these new electronic machines so that you actually have something that you can hang on to after you’ve punched that letter—make sure it hasn’t been hacked into,” he added, admitting that even Democrats have “monkeyed around” with election results:
“I want to be honest, it’s not as if it’s just Republicans who have monkeyed around with elections in the past. Sometimes, Democrats have, too.”
