Clinton calls Trump a "sore loser"

I think this the most dirty, mud slinging campaign I can remember in my 75 years. I wish our media in general was as interested in facts as they are: 1) name calling, 2) mud slinging and, 3) trying to get so much press from a loaded question (the reason for 'sore loser').

First, the missing facts - - About Hillary's private email server;

  1. who paid for purchase, installation, & maint.
  2. how much total cost?
  3. why duplicate a service already provided?
  4. of the deleted emails, who had access to that info. that we don't know of, & was that the reason for a "un-needed personal expense?
  5. did the FBI look into these areas of interest? if not, why not?

Now let's examine the question that caused the negative remark of "sore loser".

Any adult of reasonable intellect let alone a lawyer such as Hillary or a professional reporter/trained interviewer knows what a loaded question is. The classic example is 'answer yes or no, "Have you stopped beating your spouse yet?"' As you can see either answer leads the same place.

Mr. Trump has put a lot of personal time, energy, & yes personal MONEY into this campaign, where Hillary is spending someone else's money.

Trump's total focus should be expected on WIN, to ask about planning for loss is liking asking a person with a loved one in intensive care to relate their funeral plans. THAT'S not an option NOW!

As with Hillary, she would be better prepared for such a question, she has been losing since her days as first lady & we all know 'practice makes perfect'.
