This is absolutely wonderful.

Is this how Donald Trump will argue he lost the election?!
Speaking at a crowded political rally in Columbus, Ohio on Monday, The Donald asserted that he was very concerned this year's presidential election could be rigged against him — signaling the first time a modern presidential candidate has floated the extraordinary claim.
Without any evidence whatsoever to back it up (because of course, right?!) Trump told Ohio voters:
"I'm afraid the election is going to be rigged, I have to be honest."
Uh-huh. Suuuuuuuuuuuure, Donald.
He refused to go further, or state why he felt that way — or if he had any evidence to suggest the bold accusation — but he repeated the assertion later that evening on TV host Sean Hannity's program on FOX News.
There, The Donald said:
"November 8th, we'd better be careful, because that election is going to be rigged. And I hope the Republicans are watching closely or it's going to be taken away from us."
Didn't like the result? Rigged!
Lost to a woman? A set-up!
The Donald doesn't win? Planned against him the whole time!
We guess it'll allow him to save face with his supporters — while the rest of the world will laugh at him because he lost fair and square once again.
Side note: when (not if, but when) the real estate mogul loses in November, we know for sure there is one less thing he'll do afterwards!!
NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt spoke to reporters about the network's future plans, and said in no uncertain terms that the television powerhouse will NOT have The Donald back for The Celebrity Apprentice any time soon!!
"I have no idea if he has a future in television, but he would never be back on The Celebrity Apprentice, if that's the question. As long as I'm here."
Hey Donald — is NBC rigged against you too?
Hmm… maybe what's going on is Greenblatt — just like the majority of the American people — realized he doesn't want you around any longer!
