Hillaryous jail time

On 26 September 2016, after the 1st presidential debate, Donald Trump told reporters that he “would absolutely” honor the results of the 2016 Presidential election, should he lose (NBC). Four days later, he backtracked on his earlier statement during a 30 September NYT interview by suggesting that he would not necessarily accept the results of the presidential election in the event that Hillary Clinton defeated him. Trump: “We’re going to have to see. We’re going to see what happens. We’re going to have to see.” (eg, GuardianNYT).

For a long time, The Donald has been stating things like:

– “I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged, I have to be honest” (eg, BloombergPolitico)

– “We gotta beat a totally dishonest machine.” (eg, BloombergPolitico);

– It’s a crooked system. We’re running against a rigged system, and we’re running against a dishonest media.” (eg, BloombergPolitico);

– “The only way we can lose, in my opinion – I really mean this, Pennsylvania – is if cheating goes on.” (eg, CNN, Vox).

Just when you think that things can’t get any worse, Donald Trump does it again. 

On 9 October 2016, in the 2nd debate Donald Trump stated: “And I tell you what, I didn’t think I would say this, but I’m going to and I hate to say it. But if I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation. Because there has never been so many lies, so much deception.” Hillary Clinton’s reply: “It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.” Trump: “Because you’d be in jail,” referring to his earlier vow to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton’s private emails and handling of classified information. (eg, Politico full transcript, WP)

Politico: “Former Republican appointees to senior Justice Department posts used words like “abhorrent,” “absurd” and “terrifying” to describe Trump’s threat to use the legal system to imprison Clinton. “For Donald Trump to say he will have a special prosecutor appointed and to have tried and convicted her already and say she’d go to jail is wholly inappropriate and the kind of talk more befitting a Third World country than it is our democracy,” said Paul Charlton, who spent a decade as a federal prosecutor before serving as U.S. attorney for Arizona under President George W. Bush.” 

NYT, 10 October 2016: Donald Trump “lied about a sex tape, lied about his lies about ‘birtherism’, lied about the growth rate of the American economy, lied about the state of the job market, lied about the trade deficit, lied about tax rates, lied about his own position on the Iraq War, again, lied about ISIS, lied about the Benghazi attack, lied about the war in Syria, lied about Syrian refugees, lied about Russia’s hacking, lied about the San Bernardino terrorist attack, lied about Hillary Clinton’s tax plan, lied about her health care plan, lied about her immigration plan, lied about her email deletion, lied about Obamacare, more than once, lied about the rape of a 12-year-old girl, lied about his history of groping women without their consent. Finally, he broke with basic democratic norms and called on his political opponent to be jailed — because, in large part, of what he described as her dishonesty.”

Donald Trump’s view is another example of reverse psychology and projection. The only person that truly belongs in jail is Donald Trump himself. Not for lying or boasting about sexual assault. For crimes like bribing, cheating, fraud, scamming, theft, and underpaying. The Donald is up for some Hillaryous jail time.
