Joan Walsh: Republicans Don’t Accept Legitimacy of Elections They Don’t Like


On Saturday, MSNBC political analyst Joan Walsh argued that Republicans fail to accept the legitimacy of presidents they do not agree with.

Walsh said, “I don’t believe that Republicans accepted the legitimacy of Bill Clinton. There was an attempt to undermine Bill Clinton from the beginning, and that’s what impeachment was about. They certainly haven’t accepted the legitimacy of Barack Obama, elected twice. He had a backlash on the night of his inauguration in 2009, that has continued through the present day. So, there is a really worrisome, pre-Trump, this predates Donald Trump, tendency in this party to negate election results when they don’t agree with them.”
