Kaine: Trump Claiming Election Rigged Because He’s Losing
Sen. Tim Kaine said on Saturday that Donald Trump is whining about the election being rigged because he is losing.
“Donald Trump realizes he’s losing, and Hillary Clinton definitely made him realize in that first debate that he was a loser,” Kaine said at Miami Dade College, according to BuzzFeed.
“He’s blaming everybody. It’s the media’s fault, it’s the GOP’s fault — it’s everybody’s fault,” Kaine continued.
“Now that he thinks he’s gonna lose, he’s going around and saying, ‘Oh, the whole thing’s rigged. It’s just rigged against me. Poor me,'” Kaine said.

The Hill reports:
“This election is being rigged by the media pushing false and unsubstantiated charges, and outright lies, in order to elect Crooked Hillary,” Trump, the Republican nominee, declared in a tweet Saturday.
Democratic National Committee (DNC) interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile suggested Trump was fanning “conspiracy theories” to distract from new groping allegations against him.
Trump has ratcheted up his attacks on a series of women who have come forward in recent days claiming he groped or kissed them without their consent.
The office of Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) dismissed Trump’s claims of a rigged election Saturday, with a spokesman saying Ryan “is fully confident the states will carry out this election with integrity.”
