WND -- Which Suggested Obama Wouldn't Leave WH -- Complains Over Suggestions Trump Won't Leave
Topic: WorldNetDaily

An anonymously written July 14 WorldNetDaily article complained:

Hillary Clinton in an interview this week revived the conspiracy theory expressed earlier by presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden that President Trump, if he loses the 2020 election, would not leave the White House voluntarily.

The Washington Examiner noted Clinton said the nation has to "be ready" for such a scenario.

"Well, I think it is a fair point to raise as to whether or not, if he loses, he's going to go quietly or not. And we have to be ready for that," Clinton said.


An earlier Examiner report noted that it was Biden who confidently claimed that the military will escort President Trump out of the White House should the incumbent lose in November, and refuse to leave.


Biden then said, of the president, "I promise you: I am absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House with great dispatch."

Responding to Biden's theory, Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh called it "just another brainless conspiracy theory from Joe Biden."

WND would rather you forget that its founder and editor, Joseph Farah, pushed the completely unfounded idea that President Obama would not leave office when his term expired.

as we documented the last time WND complained about this, Farah used several columns in 2015 and 2016 to forward the idea that Obama wouldn't leave office, either because he was "living it up on our dime" and would be loath to give up "six all-expense-paid vacations every year at his venue of choice" or because he felt he had "an obligation to prevent Trump from assuming office."

Since then, Trump has refused to commit to accepting the results of the November election if he loses, making such concerns legitimate. Farah's fever dreams aside, Obama said no such thing.

Farah wrote in one column, "Will America follow the rule of law and the will of the people after the November election no matter what Obama might think about his successor?" WND can be counted on to never ask that question about Trump.
