“George H.W. Bush wrote this note to Bill Clinton 20 years ago when he lost the election.”

Trump’s disrespect for the electoral process is inexcusable.

It was the worst moment of the final debate: “I’ll leave you in suspense.”

“Not accepting the result of the election is the final nail in the coffin, voters will not accept that answer.” ~ Nicole on NBC

Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine stepped up the [Democratic] party’s attack on Donald Trump…telling voters and reporters in North Carolina that it would try to preempt any attacks on the election’s integrity by winning in a rout.

“I am the most fabulous whiner. I do whine because I want to win. And I’m not happy if I’m not winning. And I am a whiner. And I’m a whiner and I keep whining and whining until I win.” ~ an actual Donald J. Trump quote

It’s heartbreaking:

It’s also, as Hillary said last night in the debate, horrifying. It’s a threat to democracy.

And finally, by contrast, “George H.W. Bush wrote this note to Bill Clinton 20 years ago when he lost the election. Perfectly shows the difference between a good, respectable man and a deplorable sack of shit like Trump.” Via Reddit:
