    Obama casts his bait at Trump. How long until he takes it?

    Ai that canard again. The DNC had the right to deploy superdelegates according to its own party rules. Everyone concedes the DNC leaned to Clinton but she won the popular vote and its delegate allocations and her nomination was not rigged. If it had been then Bernie Sanders would not have supported her now. Ask Sanders.

    If the GOP had had half the sense to deploy better superdelegate rules in 2016 the Republicans would have put up a candidate that could have won the general election.

    Instead they put up Trump, the one candidate the Dems' admittedly (imo) poor choice could actually beat in November.

    So if it makes you feel better that somebody rigged something, the Republicans rigged their own primaries to elect Hillary Clinton in the fall; :eek: nice going.

    So Republicans were never accused of rigging elections in the past or sending people to vote to the wrong location or on the wrong day? Or Democrats? Do a web search: "2014 election rigged" Replace the year with 2012, 2010, and previous ones. People to this day still say 1980 was rigged thanks to some hostages... nobody tells them to stop whining and it's been 36 frigging years now...

    Wait, who put up Trump? Surely not the voters, they voted him because they believe he's not owned or paid for by anybody.

    Was Obama saying that back when Democrats were claiming it was rigged for Bush in 2004?

    To say it cannot be rigged because of the decentralized nature is absurd. Presidents aren't elected by nationwide popular vote, they are elected by a handful of swing states, or even swing districts in those states. The Democratic party's complaint in 2004 is the perfect example of this, as it was specifically about Ohio turning the entire election results around.

    On the other hand, it's hard for me to take Trump seriously. It sounds like his usual populist blustering. Is there any evidence? I have not heard of any.

    There isn't any to hear. Not just because there is very little voter fraud to begin with, but also because early voting has barely started in some places and in others there is no such thing. How can one claim an election is rigged that most voters haven't even voted in yet?

    Obama was right, Trump needs to stop whining. It's immature and not presidential. Sniffles is unfit for the job. But this is about Trump saving face. He can never admit that he is a "loser" and "choked". So it has to be someone else's fault. Like a child, he didn't break things, his invisible friend did!

    How funny this thread has become. But let's throw some brevity into this.

    This just in from those who have rigged elections (and served their time in prison for it):

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-election-rigged_us_580548c8e4b0dd54ce34b492

    And finally, five reasons (and then some) to not worry about a rigged election:

    But by all means, Trump supporters; don't let facts get in the way of what you may see on an episode of House of Cards or Scandal stop from clouding your judgment. If not, we can always find a strict, overbearing schoolmarm take one of her paddles and beat it out.. :rolleyes:

    All you phonies so concerned with voter fraud but have nothing to say over Republican state legislatures suppressing the vote (been proven in courts several times). A far greater danger than a few fraudulent votes.

    I think Trump fails to realize that he's not going to win because he has no experience and is not the candidate people want in the white house - it's not a question of rigging.

    That would have been ideal. Who knows, there's still time for her to keel over and die.

    Still, I'll take Leonardo DiCaprio over Michael Bay.
