Obama says Trump’s election fraud claims delegitimize ’democracy generally’

Former President Barack Obama assailed President Donald Trump’s claims that a massive election fraud enabled Joe Biden to win the presidency. Talking to CBS, Obama said, ’It is one more step in delegitimizing, not just the incoming Biden administration, but democracy generally,’ adding, ’And that’s a dangerous path.’ So far, Trump couldn’t back his claims of large-scale voter fraud with evidence.

Yeah, very dangerous path! Like when he said the Russians had interfered with the elections and it was an illegitimate Administration that should be impeached...oh wait.

So I’m assuming the Russian interference claims delegitimize democracy as well? Or is it only when Trump does it?

If they are confident they won legally, why fight the recounts and audits??? Recounts, audits, and transparency would only serve to increase confidence in the voting systems.

What a nice example of reverse logic. The mere existence and possibility of those claims is proof that USA is still a democratic country that values rule of law. The due process has to run with outmost diligence. The results should be published transparently and honestly. What do I get wrong?

That is a ridiculous thing to say... because that effectively means: "the crime doesn't destabilize the democracy, the investigation and questioning of it does." That is 100% backwards. We should be exceedingly quick to investigate, because if we don't find anything, Great!, but if we do find something, then it strengthens the democracy (republic) to fix it. The only way investigating can be a "dangerous path" is if that was really a veiled threat of future "unrest" and "peaceful protests" if Trump becomes the victor. You can't be hurt by looking at something under the microscope, only if you find something that someone else doesn't want you to know.

Trump is acting squarely within the Consitution and the rights of the 72 million Americans that voted FOR him. Democrats of course would love to delegitimize and disenfranchise their opponents, same values, or lack thereof, that it takes to steal an election.

F U Obama! The seditious behaviour of the left and their corporate backed mainstream media and social media has led a soft coup for the past four years that has destroyed any shred of democracy that this country had.

Obama is not the right person to talk about delegitimizing the democratic process. Unless it is a how-to lecture. The history of his administration gives a scary example of what can (and does) happen when you have activists occupying important positions in governmental organizations.

Obama is just saying out loud what the consequences are for DTs total lack of comprehension and lack of respect for our Constitution, and Western union of Democracy. Obama like all the other Western World leaders understand what the consequences are for disrespecting our Democratic process' that all western countries signed up to - for Peace and for our Freedoms and Liberty's. — DTs lack of comprehension and respect for it IS a direct threat to our Democracy, Consequences people!
