Time to be Horrified?

November 5, 2017 --

At the third Clinton-Trump presidential debate, moderator Chris Wallace asked Trump , "Do you make the same commitment [of running mate Gov. Pence and your daughter Ivanka] that you will absolutely-- sir, that you will absolutely accept the result of this election?"

Trump answered: "I will look at it at the time. I'm not looking at anything now. I'll look at it at the time." Hillary Clinton reacted by terming Trump's response "horrifying."

Apparently, not horrifying, is the refusal of all Never Trumpers, Democrats, Republicans, in the media, in the bureaucracy, to accept the results of the November 8 presidential election. But isn't it horrifying that the Democrats funded the anti-Trump dossier, and kept quiet about their involvement while the anti-Trump media alluded to the collusion between Trump and Russia, indeed some media sources even accusing the president of being a traitor. What is more damaging to our democratic institutions than baseless charges intended to topple the duly-elected president of the United States?
