Once Barack Obama announced for the presidency, some rightwing idiots claimed he couldn’t be president because he was born in Kenya. They didn’t have a shred of evidence but that didn’t stop them. Of course they changed their tune when Ted Cruz (born in Canada) decided to run.
Now leftwing idiots are saying the same thing about Trump. They give a number of reasons. Since Clinton got more votes, they say we should ignore the Constitution. Many cite the Russians hacking. Filmmaker Roger Moore came up with six reasons.
This is all utter nonsense. It is an attack on our Constitution and our democracy. Much like the birthers, they have nothing solid. I’m not sure what they are proposing. Perhaps they want the Supreme Court to throw Trump out of office on the grounds that Clinton should have won. Maybe they want to stage a coup and declare her Queen Hillary I.
I am saddened that Congressman John Lewis has joined the group. He was a key civil rights leader in the 1960s and has faithfully represented his district for over thirty years. He should know better.
Trump will be inaugurated in four days. Regardless of people’s opinion of him, he won the election in the manner prescribed in the Constitution. Obviously he is a legitimate president.
