Earlier today, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell remarked:
“Let’s not have any lectures, no lectures, about how the president should immediately, cheerfully accept preliminary election results from the same characters who just spent four years refusing to accept the validity of the last election and who insinuated that this one would be illegitimate too if they lost again — only if they lost,” the Kentucky Republican said.
“The people who push this hysteria could not have any more egg on their faces than they do right now,” McConnell said of charges that foreign countries would interfere in the presidential election.

And lest we forget that one of the most prominent voices telling President Trump to concede is former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams who never conceded to Governor Brian Kemp.
The irony will not be lost on the American people.
