Take a moment to ponder the hypocrisy of the angry demonstrators who think they lost something big last week. The Constitution and our free society honor their right to protest. They have the freedom to voice dissatisfaction after losing a completely legitimate election.
It began with a mean-spirited remark about Americans being deplorable. The reason? We were supporting Hillary Clinton’s opponent and she didn’t like it. Republican campaign rallies were disrupted. There were reports of violence. The trouble was pinned on conservative voters. The media stepped in.
