If Hillary and her devious DNC disciples stab a good man like Bernie in the back, how can she be trusted with the keys to the White House? By Piers Morgan for MailOnline

The narrative of this presidential race has been set in stone for several years: Hillary Clinton WILL be the next President of the United States.
This has been the widely held, inherently-understood belief amongst all the ‘smart’ political, media and celebrity elite in Washington, New York and Hollywood.
Oh sure, there will still have to be a contest of some sort.
But Hillary’s victory in this election is, to them, the biggest nailed down in-the-bag certainty since the Warriors went 3-1 up in the recent NBA Finals and Stephen Curry’s name was being slowly engraved on the MVP trophy.
Wait a moment.
Hold those horses.
Or, as Goldfinger used to say to 007: ‘Not so fast, Mr Bond…’
We all remember what happened at the NBA Finals; LeBron James suddenly morphed into Superman to wrestle back a 4-3 win for the Cavs and snatch the MVP title for himself from a distraught Curry.
Proof, not that any was really needed, that there really is no such thing as a certainty in either sport or politics.
Particularly when you have an opponent bursting with self-confidence who defies the conventional rules of engagement and simply refuses to bow down even in the face of apparently inevitable defeat.
Like LeBron James, and in his own way, Donald Trump.
As Trump moves ahead of Hillary in the polls for the first time, enjoying the traditional post-convention bounce, I am smelling a similar dramatic upset at the general election in November and if my nostrils are correct, then Hillary will have only herself to blame.
The shocking sense of entitlement that pervades from every pore of this Democrat nominee and her supporters is almost overwhelming.
Nowhere has this been more lamentably confirmed than in the sudden avalanche of 20,000 emails revealed by Wikileaks late last week, which laid bare a distinctly unpleasant Clinton-ite underbelly to the Democrats.
