By ‘declared’ they mean decided.
Did you get that? The winner isn’t declared by We the People. It’s decided by the media. That piece of pomposity was deleted after outraged people on social media told the leftwing rag to take a flying leap.
That’s been the pattern for years. Their candidate wins; they go ballistic at any scrutiny of the winner. Their candidate loses, they go ballistic at the winner and their supporters.
And they get to decide the winner.
