Federal Judge Openly Taunts Trump: Al Gore ‘Was A Man’ About His Loss

On November 7, 2000, mainstream news outlets began calling the presidential election for Democrat Al Gore as Florida’s vote, the last state Gore needed to amass 270 electoral college votes, looked sure to go to him instead of his rival, George W. Bush. The race ended with Bush winning, after a long recount called to an end not by a conclusion, but by the Supreme Court. Al Gore lost that vote by 327 votes out of six million cast.

When that recount ended with Bush up by a razor thin margin, Gore bowed out and conceded the election.

Compare that with the twice-impeached ex-president who never won the popular vote. Trump lost by more than seven million votes and 74 electoral college votes nationwide, despite what he told his voters about the election having been stolen from him. One of the voters who believed Trump, a man named Adam Johnson, joined in on the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6 to try to stop the vote certification.

According to CNN, Senior District Judge Reggie Walton, a judge appointed by George W. Bush, told Johnson that:

‘Al Gore had a better case to argue than Mr. Trump, but he was a man about what happened to him. He accepted it and walked away.’

Walton told Johnson that he was afraid to let him out of jail at all considering the poor judgment and willingness to be led by a man who is still insisting that the vote was rigged and that Democrats, Republicans, a vote tabulating machine company, election workers, and Italy all conspired against him.

‘What concerns me, sir, is that you were gullible enough to come to Washington, DC, from Florida based on a lie and the person who inspired you to do what you do is still making those statements, and my concern is that you are gullible enough to do it again.’

Johnson faces six months in jail and $500 in restitution for damage done to the Capitol during the riot, where Johnson was seen and identified after smiling for cameras while carrying Nancy Pelosi’s lectern out the doors of the Capitol Building. His case is one of many.

‘More than 130 defendants have pleaded guilty so far to charges connected to the Capitol riot, with most to date admitting to misdemeanor charges.’
