FLASHBACK: Hillary Compares 2000 Bush Presidential Victory to Rigged Nigerian Elections

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has caught a lot of flack for stating that the 2016 presidential election is rigged. While his surrogates have attempted to make the case that the media is working to rig the election in favor of Clinton with their coverage, Trump himself has alleged widespread voter fraud. Trump’s argument has been widely criticized as being “unAmerican” and an insult to the “democratic process” of American elections.

What few are talking about, however, is the fact that while giving a speech in Nigeria in 2009, Hillary Clinton compared the 2000 George W. Bush Presidential victory over Al Gore to rigged elections in Nigeria. Essentially, Hillary alleged that there was something nefarious, and even possible collusion, between the George W. Bush presidential campaign and his brother, Jeb Bush, who was then governor of Florida.

“In 2000, our presidential election came down to one state where the brother of the man running for President was the governor of the state. So we have our problems, too.”

Will anyone in the mainstream media ask Hillary Clinton about that baseless accusation of wrongdoing and illegality by the Bushes?

Doubt it.
