Donald Trump’s suggestion that the election could be rigged or stolen through voter fraud has sent the entire media into a hyperventilating fit. From their fainting couches, countless journalists have suggested that Trump is putting our democracy at risk by bringing this up.

Back in 2008 however, this issue came up with Obama and no one said a thing.

In the video below, Obama is holding a campaign event at Kent State University in Ohio. A woman in the audience asks Obama for reassurance that the election won’t be rigged or stolen.

Obama responds:

“It helps in Ohio that we’ve got Democrats in charge of the machines.”

He then acknowledges that he’s from Chicago and that Democrats have been guilty of voter fraud in the past.

He also says:

“Whenever people are in power, they have this tendency to try to tilt things in their direction.”

Hmm… You don’t say.

Watch the video:

The media will continue to rebuke Trump’s concerns but had no problem when Obama supporters had the same questions.

What a difference an election makes.
