That was when Clinton and Co thought they had it in the bag.
My my, how times have changed. We've seem gratuitous violence from the left. Gratuitous insults and death threats are the order of the day.
Now they have outdone themselves with a concerted campaign to intimidate electoral college voters into ignoring the presidential votes in their state and vote for the criminally corrupt Hillary Clinton.
The presidential electors, mostly former Bernie Sanders supporters who hail from Washington state and Colorado, are now lobbying their Republican counterparts in other states to reject their oaths — and in some cases, state law — to vote against Trump when the Electoral College meets on Dec. 19.
All of which will improve Mr Trump's chances of securing a second term in four years' time.
When will they ever learn?
And so the lunacy escalates. Those masters of electoral fraud, the Democrats, enthusiastically supported by our resident expert on every little thing, accuse the Republicans of voter fraud.
The evidence for this accusation?
A couple of junior lecturers from some obscure institution got hold of a computer model from East Anglia which showed that Crooked Hillary won more votes in states with paper voting than in states with electronic voting. Oh no! It's those damned missing millions again. I tell you, they're everywhere.
Interesting to note the same computer programme, in different hands, could be made to show that Crooked Hillary's two million margin in the popular vote consists entirely of corpses and illegal Mexicans.
