Donald Trump’s worst fear…..

Rep John Lewis voices it out loud…..

John Lewis: ‘I Don’t See Trump as a Legitimate President’1:22

In an exclusive interview with NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) said he does not believe Donald Trump is a “legitimate president,” citing Russian interference in last year’s election.

Asked whether he would try to forge a relationship with the president-elect, Lewis said that he believes in forgiveness, but added, “it’s going to be very difficult. I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president.”

When pressed to explain why, he cited allegations of Russian hacks during the campaign that led to the release of internal documents from the Democratic National Committee, and Hillary Clinton’s campaign co-chairman, John Podesta.

“I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton,” Lewis told NBC News’ Chuck Todd…..

  1. While I will be interested in the pending Senate nvestigation as to Russian meddling in the election,I am not prepared to claim Trump is “illegitimate.”

    As we have been discussing here the past two months,there are myriad reasons Clinton lost the electoral votes in the three states that accounted for Trumps victory.

    I don’t think,however, it will ever be possible to “prove” that whatever the Russians did in and of itself cost her the election.

    Indeed, a much better argument could have been(and was to some extent) made back in 2000 as to the legitimacy of Bushs “victory” by a mere 500 or so votes in Florida when the Supreme Court literally stopped the recount.

  2. Knew this was coming….
    This IS gonna be a touchy subject for Trump….


    Trump rips John Lewis: Worry about your ‘crime infested’ district

    ….President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday morning returned fire on a top Democrat who said he was not a “legitimate president.”

    A day after Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) said Trump was not legitimate, the president-elect told him to worry about his own district instead.

    “Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results. All talk, talk, talk – no action or results. Sad!” Trump wrote in a series of tweets….

  3. Remarkable that we have a President with – among many other serious character flaws – the emotional intelligence of an eight grader.

  4. I don’t think Lewis was focused on vote totals when he called Trump and illegitimate President. I think this was more in reference to how Trump had attempted, and made himself a hero to the haters (see Manila), to de-legitimize Obama with the birther crap and, in turn, how ironic that is now that Trump is about to installed in office.

    The British are working on stories of how the Russians conspired with Trump to not only influence the election, but how they have damaging information that they will use to blackmail der Donald to get favorable ruling out of the White House (see ending the sanctions).

    And it appears that Comey was also working hard to help Trump, especially since he had knowledge Trump’s hooker romp in Moscow. (I bet Manila gets thrill out of that one.)

    So, what I think Lewis was saying is that these were both illegal and treasonist acts that helped to make Trump President. Ergo, he is illegitimate.

  5. Trump gets pushback on his comments dissing Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga), who has a long history in the civil rights struggles of this country…

    ….Lawmakers took to social media on Saturday to defend Rep. John Lewis’s (D-Ga.) legacy after President-elect Donald Trump launched an early-morning Twitter attack on the civil rights leader.

    Pushing back against Trump’s criticism that Lewis is “all talk” and “no action or results,” Democrats and one Republican recalled Lewis’s role in the civil rights movement and painted him as a tooth-and-nail defender of justice….

  6. This is NOT going away and THAT is only justice against a guy who went into the gutter to get a win and must be watched and NOIT allowed to pay back the Russians while IN office…

  7. What’s up Daniel?

    By the way. On a personal level, I expect to be laid off in the next couple of weeks. My company has had three layoffs of 10% or more people in the past ten years, and my department has been especially hard hit each time. I am the only person left from my original department of 10 people. Last February, my job was downgraded – although I still got a 2% raise. But this time, It looks like I won’t survive the cut. I haven’t been invited to meetings that I normally go to and my boss can’t look at me in the eye. the technical skills I will need to be successful will change drastically, and since I make a decent salary, I am frankly a logical cut.

    As a 58 year old, things don’t look promising for me.

  8. Zreebs,

    I am sincerely sorry to hear about your impending layoff.I have been fortunate in life ,due to my profession ,never having to endure such.Try to be optimistic as difficult as that may be.Ive found that sometimes ,when you least expect it ,something good will all of a sudden come your way.

  9. Damn Z…..

  10. ‘He Has This Deep Fear That He Is Not a Legitimate President’

    ….’From his pick of nominees for posts in his cabinet to his belligerent use of Twitter (our conversation was a day before he traded barbs with Congressman John Lewis) to his unwillingness to cut ties with his business to avoid conflicts of interest, they see the same person they’ve always seen—the consummate classroom troublemaker; a vain, insecure bully; and an anti-institutional schemer, as adept at “gaming the system” as he is unashamed. As they look ahead to his inauguration speech in two days, and to his administration beyond, they feel confident predicting that he will run the country much as he has run his company. For himself.

    “He’s not going to be that concerned with the actual competent administration of the government,” D’Antonio said. “It’s going to be what he seems to be gaining or losing in public esteem. So almost like a monarch. The figurehead who rallies people and gets credit for things.”….
