“We have to inoculate against that, we have to be prepared for that”
Democrats still have not accepted their 2016 loss to Donald Trump. Nor have they accepted the results of the two year investigation they demanded. Yet they’re deeply worried about whether or not Trump will accept the results of the 2020 election.
It’s another classic case of projection.

Pelosi Warns Democrats: Stay in the Center or Trump May Contest Election Results
Speaker Nancy Pelosi does not believe President Trump can be removed through impeachment — the only way to do it, she said this week, is to defeat him in 2020 by a margin so “big” he cannot challenge the legitimacy of a Democratic victory.
That is something she worries about.
“We have to inoculate against that, we have to be prepared for that,” Ms. Pelosi said during an interview at the Capitol on Wednesday as she discussed her concern that Mr. Trump would not give up power voluntarily if he lost re-election by a slim margin next year.
Sitting in her office with its panoramic view of the National Mall, Ms. Pelosi — the de facto head of the Democratic Party until a presidential nominee is selected in 2020 — offered Democrats her “coldblooded” plan for decisively ridding themselves of Mr. Trump: Do not get dragged into a protracted impeachment bid that will ultimately get crushed in the Republican-controlled Senate, and do not risk alienating the moderate voters who flocked to the party in 2018 by drifting too far to the left.
“Own the center left, own the mainstream,” Ms. Pelosi, 79, said.
How exactly does Pelosi think Democrats are going to appeal to the mainstream? Democrats are currently calling for the abolishment of ICE and the Electoral College. Some of them want to spend trillions fighting climate change and others want to destroy private health insurance. Is that the middle?
Here’s one more question for Ms. Pelosi, regarding accepting the outcome of elections. Has she ever heard of Stacey Abrams?

Total Insanity: Failed GA Gov Candidate Stacey Abrams Declares ‘We Don’t Have to Concede Elections Anymore’
Okay, so remember when Donald Trump said, half-jokingly, that he would accept the 2016 results…if he wins? The media went has a spastic attack, Trump was a threat to the country, a threat to our institution, but it’s okay; Hillary was going to win. Well, that blew up in their faces.
So, what happens when the Democrats do it? There’s a deafening silence. It’s expected. But failed Democratic Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has become the gold standard when it comes to the Left throwing a tantrum over election losses. She says she didn’t lose, but in fact, “won” the race. That’s demonstrably false; she lost by more than 50,000 votes…
And alas, her latest episode of insanity when it comes to elections: the Left doesn’t need to concede anymore:
.@staceyabrams giving defiant speech to @AnniesListTX, saying she won’t be a “good sport” & go away quietly after election in which she was wronged. “We don’t have to concede elections anymore, b/c when we concede, we are condoning systems that are used to oppress us,” she says.
