As we get closer to the November presidential election, Democrats are increasingly pushing the baseless conspiracy theory that President Trump will not accept the results of the election if he loses.

Presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said last month he was “absolutely convinced [the military] will escort him from the White House with great dispatch” after being asked about the possibility of Trump refusing to concede.

Failed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made similar comments Monday when asked her thoughts on whether or not Trump would concede if he lost. As my colleague Alex Parker reported, Clinton said, “Well, I think it is a fair point to raise as to whether or not, if he loses, he’s going to go quietly or not. And we have to be ready for that.”

That fact that this claim is both laughable and absurd for many reasons – as WH press secretary Kayleigh McEnany pointed out Tuesday, has not stopped the “he’s gonna steal it!” crackpots from continuing to warn of “the possibility.”

Such was the case this morning with liberal New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, who posted a bizarre thread detailing how he thought Trump would go about trying to steal it:

This is just about as wacko as it gets, folks, and it comes from the same people who have screamed RUSSIA COLLUSION for four years as if saying it loudly and often enough will somehow make it true.

What Krugman’s doing here is preemptively discrediting the election results in the event Trump does win. In fact, it’s almost as though the people pushing the idea that Trump will “steal” the election believe he’s got a real shot at winning, so they’re trying to delegitimize it before it (possibly) happens.

In reality, the only “October surprise” will be one of the Democrats’ making, and it will have something to do with Russia Russia Russia. And the only “unidentified federal agents” showing up at the polls will be the ones in white coats to cart Krugman off for “observation” after the meltdown he has in the event Trump is victorious.
