During his national security press conference today, the President was asked about whether he could "guarantee" that the November vote would not be rigged.

His answer was priceless.

"I don't even really know where to start on answering this question. Of course the elections will not be rigged," he declared.

The President went on to liken it to people playing sports "in a schoolyard or a sandbox," who sometimes lose. "If they lose they complain they got cheated but I never heard someone complain about being cheated before the game is over or before the score is tallied," he said.

That was the shot. Here is the chaser.

"If Mr. Trump is up 10-15 points on Election Day and ends up losing, then he can raise some questions," he added. "That doesn't seem to be the case at the moment."

It sounds like the President must have heard about the Marist poll out today putting her up 15 points, and the new NBC/WSJ poll putting her up 9 points.

Ooooh, burn. As Michael Cohen says,
