For many months, the LeftMedia have been warning that Trump supporters were so clearly violent they would likely riot when he lost the election. The media were salivating at the ratings triumph of this imagined scenario. They knew that it was coming, and it was going to validate their contempt for Trump and anyone who supported him.
So prevalent was the conviction that Trump was going to lose, and lose badly, that Chris Wallace, in the last debate, asked Trump if he would concede if he lost. It never occurred to him to ask Clinton the same question.
