Donald Trump just is the Boy Who Cried ‘Rigged’
On October 19th, when I watched the 3rd debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, I was appalled to hear Mr. Trump say he would not commit to accepting the election results if he loses. The next day he said he would, if he wins. (See the Washington Post articles titled At third debate, Trump won’t commit to accepting election results if he loses and Donald Trump says he will accept results of election -’if I win’).
He behaved like a spoiled brat. My grandparent’s generation would have scornfully referred to him as a “little pisher.”
The image of a crying boy was adapted from an 1877 chromolithograph by A. M. Willard titled The Bone of Contention found at the Library of Congress.
