Donald Trump's comment Wednesday night that he will have to wait and see whether to accept the results of the 2016 election was shocking for a presidential candidate.
It was also a total flip-flop.
Asked by debate moderator Chris Wallace whether he would accept the election results, Trump said some version of "I will look at it at the time" repeatedly. He added: "I'll keep you in suspense, OK?"
What many didn't note on Wednesday night, though, is that Trump has actually been asked this question before - at a debate! - and offered a totally different answer.
Here's the exchange with NBC's Lester Holt from the first debate, which seems like three months ago but was actually just 25 days ago:
HOLT: Mr. Trump, very quickly, same question. Will you accept the outcome as the will of the voters?
It took prodding, but Trump said he would "absolutely" support Clinton as president. It was unmistakable and firm.
