During the 3rd and final presidential debate in Las Vegas on Wednesday night, Hillary Clinton took stepped onstage like a woman on the verge of clinching the presidency, dominating Donald Trump in all topics for discussion, while the billionaire refused to say that he’ll accept the outcome of the election.
The Republican nominee, even after his running mate and campaign manager assured reporters Wednesday that Trump would accept the electoral result if he loses, shocked the political world by declaring he may not accept the outcome on Nov. 8.
“I will look at it at the time,” said Trump, descending onto his conspiracy about how the media has it in for him and how the overall election is rigged against his campaign.
“That’s horrifying,” Clinton shot back, offering several examples of Trump blaming his personal setbacks and disappointments on others’ cheating or rigging of the events, including The Apprentice getting passed over for an Emmy.
“Should have gotten it,” Trump blurted back.

Republicans seize on Trump election comments:
Trump’s campaign has been in free-fall since a video emerged revealing Trump boasting about how his celebrity allowed him to get away with sexual assault on beautiful women—and his on-stage denial of such behavior during the last debate brought forth a steady stream of women with striking similar allegations that he, in fact, had groped them.
Trump has only been able to drag attention away from the scandal by relentlessly pursuing another narrative — that the election is rigged against him.
