President-elect Donald Trump took to Twitter Sunday to take aim at sour Hillary Clinton supporters, who continue to call into question the legitimacy of last month's election results.
"If my many supporters acted and threatened people like those who lost the election are doing, they would be scorned & called terrible names!" Trump tweeted Sunday evening.

Following last month's election, which was likely one of the most polarizing presidential elections in American history, Clinton, her campaign team and her supporters have been grasping at straws when searching for excuses as to why Clinton lost when most assumed she'd handedly defeat Trump.
One of the biggest calls-to-action since the election has been for Electoral College electors to vote against Trump when they convene on Monday. Though Trump's tweet was lacking more context, this is likely what he was referring to, since some Trump electors have received death threats in the lead up to Monday's vote.
Still, Trump's point of a double standard is likely correct: since day one, his supporters have been "scorned" and for Democrats that's been OK. But if the roles were reversed, it would definitely not be OK.
Before the election, Clinton and Democrats scolded Trump and his supporters to accept the election's results. Now though, it appears their words were only sincere if Clinton had won.
