Obama Says Republicans ‘Humoring’ Trump’s Election Complaints Are On ‘Dangerous Path’
Former President Barack Obama took an opportunity recently during an interview to promote his new book to scold GOP leaders for daring to actually back up their president as he calls for investigations into the many, many allegations of voter fraud that have popped up since last week’s election.
President Trump has not yet conceded the election to Joe Biden, as he’s awaiting the outcomes of several lawsuits filed in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, and Pennsylvania to ensure that no voter fraud was involved in the counts.
“They appear to be motivated, in part, because the president doesn’t like to lose and never admits loss,” Obama said during an interview with CBS News on Thursday. “I’m more troubled by the fact that other Republican officials, who clearly know better, are going along with this, are humoring him in this fashion.”
Obama described Republican kowtowing as delegitimatizing “not just the incoming Biden administration, but democracy generally.”
“And that’s a dangerous path,” he said.
Obama sat down with CBS to promote the first installment of his forthcoming two-part post-presidency memoir. A Promised Land is due to be released on Tuesday.
In excerpts circulated Thursday, Obama bluntly links his historic 2008 election to a rise in racial hostility around the country, a sentiment he said Trump tapped into.
“It was as if my very presence in the White House had triggered a deep-seated panic, a sense that the natural order had been disrupted,” Obama writes in his new book.
Of course he thinks the election of Donald Trump had to do with racism against him. Obama is the biggest narcissist on the planet, thus, he just had to find a way to make the 2016 all about him and the color of his skin.
The reason folks voted for Donald Trump is because he spoke his mind and cared about the issues that directly affected them. For eight years, middle America’s concerns were ignored. Then, on top of that, along came Obamacare, which really put a heavy burden on people.
We hired President Trump because of his anti-leftist stance and policies. Not because our last president was black.
