Election 2016, The Left, and Losing with Dignity…or Not

From BarbWire:

Editor’s Note: So many of us who voted for Trump, who were vehemently opposed to Hillary Clinton, the Grand Dame of Corruption and Prevarication, have been appalled at the absolute meltdown on the Left.

My case in point is Van Jones on CNN from Election Night:
