President Barack Obama in a press conference on Tuesday implored Donald Trump to “stop whining” about a “rigged” election.
“There’s no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that . . . you could even rig America’s election — in part because they’re so decentralized and the number of votes involved,” Obama said. “There’s no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there are instances in which that will happen this time. And so I’d advise Mr. Trump to stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes. And if he got the most votes, then it would be my expectation of Hillary Clinton to offer a gracious concession speech and pledge to work with him in order to make sure that the American people benefit from an effective government.”

The call for calm came after a Monday tweetstorm, in which the Republican presidential nominee baselessly bemoaned “large scale voter fraud”:
Of course there is large scale voter fraud happening on and before election day. Why do Republican leaders deny what is going on? So naive!

Obama is not the first political figure to criticize Trump for “whining” about make-believe voter fraud. Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, guesting on Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show” on Monday night, also suggested the real estate mogul “stop whining.”
Monday’s “Late Show” was noteworthy for another reason: President Obama made a guest appearance.
Conspiracy? You make the connections here.
In June, Infowars.com founder Alex Jones had a perfectly justifiable Super Male Vitality-induced on-air tantrum regarding “sniveler” Bill O’Reilly’s phony conservatism, through which he said the Fox News host “bullies” his audience into denouncing the Second Amendment.
So, for posterity sake, when the globalists drone-strike my survival shelter for exposing their secrets, I want written on my tombstone: “Alex Jones was right all along.”
