Final Trump vs. Clinton Debate 2016

And the whole country sighed with relief when it was over.

However, Trump gave a caveat when asked if he would accept the results of the election in November if he loses, as most polls tell us that he will:

When first asked, Trump refused to say yes, replying in part, "I will look at it [the election results] at the time." When pushed on the issue, Trump told Wallace, "I'll keep you in suspense."

Stephen Colbert let him have it on Trump's "suspense":

Oh my God. That's...uh...what's the word?
(Shows tape of Hillary saying "horrifying" during the debate)
That's it! Thank you! Thank you!
(Stephen blows kiss to Hillary/camera - crowd cheers)
I want to make sure I heard that correctly.
(Plays Trump saying "I'll keep you in suspense")
Oh! Oh - Suspense! Democracy's going to end with a cliffhanger. I guess we're all going to have to wait until November 9th to find out if we still have a country! If Donald Trump is in the "mood" for a peaceful transfer of power. Or if he's just going to wipe is fat ass with the Constitution!

The day after the debate, Donald doubled down, saying he would only accept a win, not a loss:

In front of an exuberant crowd Thursday in Delaware, Ohio, Donald Trump again addressed whether he would accept the outcome of the November election.

"Ladies and gentleman I want to make a major announcement today," Trump said, continuing, "I would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters, and to all of the people of the United States, that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election - if I win"

End Times: Trump Killing the GOP

 photo dumpster-fire-o_1.gif

In the never-ending dumpster fire that is the modern GOP, Donald Trump has found new and unique ways to throw gasoline on everything. And no one seems able to stop the conflagration, although voters are running from the Republican Party in droves, not to mention the donors who are now asking for their money back. Fundraisers are also being cancelled due to "lack of interest." He's even lost the Mormons of Utah thanks to his porn-laced comments about women, and they are flocking to Mormon alternative candidate Evan McMullin who could make Trump irrelevant in several Western states.

Is this the end of the Republican Party as we know it? As they say in the musical Oklahoma, have they "gone about as fur as they kin go?" We can hope!

Of course, Trump himself is pushing back by squalling like a cranky toddler without about rigged elections, unfavorable Saturday Night Live skits, and accusations that Hillary is on drugs. I would call that "classic projection" myself. Trump would love to rig elections himself, he vilifies and puts down everyone, and he sniffed like a Coke addict through the first two debates. So, who is what?
