“We have seen hypocrisy on rank display from the left,” the former GOP presidential candidate said on Fox News’s “Fox and Friends” Thursday. "These are the idiots now protesting by laying down in front of cars and disrupting traffic.


“Right now the Democrats seem to be in this weird spiral of getting nuttier and nuttier. I hope some saner heads prevail in the Democratic Party.”

“All the polls, all the pundits, said Donald Trump couldn’t win,” he said. "The Clinton campaign had already popped the champagne bottles and they were already celebrating.

“The voters gave Trump a resounding win. The election was an incredible mandate. President-elect Trump campaigned on making America great again. I think that’s something voters desperately want to see.”

Trump repeatedly suggested during the 2016 race’s final days that the campaign process may be “rigged” against him.

Clinton and other Democrats hammered the Republican for the remarks, arguing they undermined the democratic process.

Protests have erupted in multiple cities across the country following Trump’s stunning win over Clinton last week.

Many demonstrators have chanted “not my president” during marches in locations ranging from Boston to Oakland.
