After what appeared to be a refusal to concede late last night (via John Podesta), followed by Trump’s victory speech, in which he referred to a concession call by his opponent, Hillary Clinton finally issued her concession speech at around 11:30 AM Eastern time.
The tone was clearly bitter, though it was cloaked in the hopeful language of continued efforts.
After questions about whether or not Donald Trump would have the wherewithal to admit defeat and accept election results, it turned out to be Hillary who had apparent difficulty in giving up.

But reality set in, and she went on stage, albeit more than an hour after she was scheduled to do so, to admit her loss.
She played to what might have been her largest and most enthusiastic crowd to date on the 2016 campaign trail.
Thank you so very much for being here. I love you all, too. Last night I congratulated Donald Trump and offered to work with him on behalf of our country.
I hope that he will be a successful president for all Americans. This is not the outcome we wanted or we worked so hard for, and I’m sorry we did not win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country.
But I feel pride and gratitude for this wonderful campaign that we built together. This vast diverse creative unruly energized campaign. You represent the best of America and being your candidate has been one of the greatest honors of my life.
I know how disappointed you feel because I feel it, too. And so do tens of millions of Americans who invested their hopes and dreams in this effort. This is painful, and it will be for a long time. But I want you to remember this.
Our campaign was never about one person, or even one election. It was about the country we love and building an America that is hopeful, inclusive, and big-hearted. We have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we thought. But I still believe in America, and I always will. And if you do, then we must accept this result and then look to the future. Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power.
To anyone that sent contributions, even as small as $5, that kept us going, thank you. To all of us, and to the young people in particular, I hope you will hear this — I have, as Tim said, I have spent my entire life fighting for what I believe in.
I’ve had successes and setbacks and sometimes painful ones. Many of you are at the beginning of your professional, public, and political careers — you will have successes and setbacks too.
This loss hurts, but please never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it.
And so we need — we need you to keep up these fights now and for the rest of your lives. And to all the women, and especially the young women, who put their faith in this campaign and in me: I want you to know that nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion.
Now, I know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling, but someday someone will — and hopefully sooner than we might think right now. [Cheers and applause]
And to all of the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams. [Cheers and applause]
now you go to the gallows for treason you criminal, corrupt, treasonist bitch! bye bye!
I don’t want to see her face again. I don’t want to hear about Clintons anymore.
Me neither. Sickening crime family.
the only time i want to hear the Clinton name again, is that they are going to prison!! other than that YES, never want to hear that scum name again!!
Everyone, I’d love to hear about the Clintons having an ‘accident’.
BH. Remember the last BS’n prick who wished death on others? He fell flat on his lying face, and had a heart attack. Uncle Karma.
How sweet, I know it’s WWTI posting under a new name. Not trying to tell ME anything, are you? Not really f#$%in interested in the message.
Yeah, its real painful, she says… no more opportunities to scavange from the American people!!! What a shame!!! Lets hope it is even MORE painful for her…like she gets locked up in prison or HUNG for treason!! The scumbag!!!
Anonymous, my heart bleeds purple peter juice for her. The poor commie/feminazi bitch! [SARCASM DEFINITELY INTENDED FOR THE HILDEBEAST]
Not THIS woman. Not THIS time.
Thank God I won’t have to listen to this wench screech for the next 4 years. As far as Hillary goes, lets hope that justice prevails but not that anything evil befalls her. Trekker Out.
is pleasure derived from the misfortune of others. Borrowed from German into English and several other languages, it is a feeling of joy that comes from seeing or hearing about another person’s troubles or failures. It is similar in meaning to the English term “gloating”, an expression of pleasure or self-satisfaction at one’s own success or another’s failure.
What do you call it when
“The greatest happiness is to scatter your enemy, to drive him before you, to see his cities reduced to ashes, to see those who love him shrouded in tears, and to gather into your bosom his wives and daughters”.
I call it a thing that is best in life.
A guy by the name of Khan made that quote,
The Democrats haven’t been beaten bad enough,
…so let me express my joy at Trump’s victory by saying “suck on that, Hitlery!!! Suck on that, Obama!!!”
Ding Dong the witch is dead, the wicked witch, the wicked witch. Perhaps we should all email/twitter obama to make sure he leaves the china and silverware and to leave the “T” on the computer keyboards.
Im surprised she didn’t burst into flames when she started quoting scripture.
LOL!!! 🙂 Good one, Jim!!
If Trump did nothing else, he stopped the Clinton crime family. It’s possible that Trump will stop the Supreme Court from becoming a Marxist tragedy for another 4 years at least. We never recovered from the Warren Court. He gets to replace Ginsberg. The court could very soon become 6-3 non-liberal. That’s big.
When President Trump replaces Ruth Bader Ginsburg, I hope the nominee is Ted Cruz.
Karma, it can be entertaining at times.
Him, stopping the Clinton crime family is a huge relief.
I don’t like to see anyone in physical pain,
but I’m glad “they’re” hurting.
59 million brainless idiots..(.ok, some are brain dead, others just dead, so it wasn’t really that many).
The other thing he will do (despite himself) is GET CONGRESS TO REVOKE ALL THOSE NEAR DICTATORIAL EXECUTIVE POWERS THAT HAVE BEEN ACCUMULATING SINCE BUSH 2. And that continued under Obama.
Come on tell me you’re not fucking sick and tired of “President Palpatine” (whomever it happens to be at the time).
Dems hate him. Repubs hate him. They’ll both move to castrate his official powers to the fullest extent they legally can.
Which is GREAT BY ME MAN.
It’s about time all this bullshit stopped.
She has only been campaigning for 10 years. I’m glad she’s out once and for all. The media was wrong, the polls were wrong, and the stock market was wrong (for now)……
The next time I have to look at Hillary Clinton, I hope she is in an orange jumpsuit.
You wonder if she’ll be the boss or someone’s female dog if she would actually go.
Not quite enough for what she did to those in Benghazi, but it’s a start.
is that a large purple bruise I see above her right eye? Did she fall down go boom?
Hopefully this election ends the Bush and Clinton hold on politics. The public is saying we’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take this anymore!
Are the dems and reps listening? We’ll see.
Speaking of investments, what about the millions of dollars funneled in through the Clinton Foundation to have President Hillary peruse the interests of wealthy donors?
Somebody could die over this.
one can only hold hope
At least we didn’t have to listen to that “laugh of hers”; that evil, cackling sound so much like the last thing Hansel and Gretel ever heard.
I wonder how long the liberal Supreme Court justices will try to hold out before retiring (or dying of old age) in order to keep President Trump from appointing 2 or 3 young conservative judges to the bench?
Obama is leaving office in January, but you can bet he’s not going far. He’s going to have his face in front of a camera criticizing Trump for at least 4 years.
Hilary, it won’t be as painful as how those four men you let die in Benghazi felt, or all those Haitians who died of cholara after you stole all those millions for the Clinton Scam… errr.. Foundation groiup.
The cabal still has 2 months…
War will never be over.
I’m hoping it won’t be for that long of a time knowwhatimsaying *hack cough*
AND WE DON’T SEE HAVE TO SEE HER UGLY, HALF DEAD HUSBAND AS THE NEW FIRST LADY!!! 🙂
We didn’t need another pussy in the White House!
Sorry, don’t buy any of it. Her words are without sincerity and are only scripted. Her past actions should never be forgotten and her 13 minute speech is only an attempt by her to cover her lies and blatant years of hatred and deceitfulness towards the undeceived American people. We have been betrayed time and time again by Obama, Hillary, the Federal Reserve, Loretta Lynch, and the whole worthless lot of them. Forgiveness, no, not at this time, I’m just not ready, and may never be. Our White House was covered in rainbow covered lights and our Nation was made a mockery of. Hillary needs to be charged, tried, and convicted for multiple treasonous acts. At this point she should be imprisoned for life. As for any accolades, are you kidding me! This women has manipulated so many people, and knowingly taken extreme advantage of their gross level of naivete, is all exceedingly beyond my comprehension. If you are not mad and pissed-off, after this post-election charade, then you have learned absolutely nothing from these past 8 years…
If she now retires from public life it’ll not come a day too soon. Such an unpleasant character.
Hillary,I hope your Parkinsons is the same as janets,yes will be a long painful road to your death but you earned it,as you are a murderess the same as that piece of shit reno,enjoy hell on earth you twat!
A highly effective global media stranglehold ensured nothing but positive press about the Clintons and their ‘good works’ got out. This was held up by the world’s media barons as they felt the Clintons would do their bidding in the New World Order. But now that Hillary is an electoral bust, the headlines are starting to turn and tell the truth:
Daily Mail: “Death of a dynasty that was rotten to its core: After 40 years of sex, lies and scandals, the Clintons are to leave public life beset by a crushing humiliation”
