Trump Continues to Ignore Reality, So Do Hillary Supporters

President-elect Trump continues to deny that there is any evidence of Russian tampering in the presidential election. Now, he's taking it a step further, denying that the issue was even brought up before election day.

I know politicians make a living on being less than truthful, but come on! Trump literally discussed this very issue during the final debate. Does he really think we've all just forgotten that? Or is he so delusional that he actually forgot?


It's telling that even many Republican politicians are agreeing that the possible Russian hacks need to be investigated. Any reasonable person would look at all of the information coming in and say, "Yeah, we should probably take a look at it." But we all know that our President-elect is not a reasonable person.

Now, that's not to say that the other side is completely honorable here. Millions of Hillary supporters are using this development as an excuse to say that Trump is an illegitimate president. So they, too, are ignoring reality. Even if Russia interfered, that is not what caused Hillary to lose Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Wisconsin.

Clearly, the shock of the election still has not worn off. The losing side just can't come to grips with the fact that they lost. And the winner still can't come to grips with reality.
