Here we go again! Donald Trump took the opportunity on the stage of the final debate to claim once again that the election is rigged, and he took it one step further by refusing to say whether or not he’ll accept the outcome of the election. Hillary Clinton wasn’t having it, and totally slammed him.
Not this again! Donald Trump, 70, has recently become convinced that the presidential election is rigged so that he can’t beat Hillary Clinton, 68, on Nov. 8. He brought up the idea yet again at the final presidential debate on Oct. 19, and this time he said that between the media, people who shouldn’t be able to vote, and Hillary’s email scandal, he should win.

“What I’ve seen is so bad,” he began ranting. “First of all the media is so dishonest and so corrupt. They poisoned the minds of the voters, but unfortunately for them I think the voters are seeing through it. Millions of people are registered to vote, that should not be registered to vote. Let me just give you one other thing:she shouldn’t be allowed to run. It’s crooked. She’s guilty of a very serious crime, just in that respect I say its rigged.”
Hillary verbally eye-rolled to the rant, saying that whenever things go bad for Donald, he insists he’s being treated unfairly. She called attention to a tweet where he claimed the Emmys were rigged because The Apprentice lost three years in the row. “I should have gotten it,” chirped Donald. Is he for real?!
To go one step further, Donald says that he may refuse to concede after the election and accept that Donald won. “I’ll decide at the time,” he snapped. “I’ll leave you in suspense.” Historically, every nominee concedes at the end of the election. But would you even be surprised if Donald didn’t at this point?
Plenty of celebrities couldn’t believe what they were hearing:
"Should have gotten it." – A person up for President of the US talking about the 3rd rigged Emmy he didn't win for his reality show. #debate

Throughout his campaign, Donald has maintained the theory that Hillary’s team and the Democratic National Committee had made it so that Bernie Sanders had no chance of beating Hillary, even though Bernie is now supporting the former Secretary of State in her bid for president.
Donald has had nothing but complained about the fairness of the election for the majority of his run. On top of saying that it’s “rigged,” he also believes that the media has an agenda, and that all of the attacks he’s received were just lies to take him down. Even his wife Melania claims that the sexual assault accusations against him were made up by his “opponent,” and that all of the women were lying. Yikes.
HollywoodLifers, do you think that Donald is right about the election being rigged, or is that a razy thing to say? Share your thoughts with us!
