Priebus to Obama: ‘Step up’ and quiet Democrats who question Trump’s legitimacy

Are you joking. That orange sack of shit spent three years lying about Obama in order to “question his legitimacy.” Lying. He lied. People now are questioning Trump’s legitimacy based on the truth.

Trump never bothered to apologize for those three years of racist lies.

Speaking on ABC’s “This Week,” Priebus acknowledged Lewis’s “historic contribution to civil rights and voting rights” but said his doubts about Trump’s legitimacy are “insanity” and “incredibly disappointing.”

“I think President Obama should step up,” he said, praising the cooperation from the White House on other transition issues. “I think the administration can do a lot of good by telling folks that are on the Republican side of the aisle: Look, we may have lost the election on the Democratic side, but it’s time to come together.”

I think Trump can do some good by apologizing for all his racist lies and insults. I think he should go first.

Vice President-elect Mike Pence separately criticized Lewis on Sunday for questioning Trump’s legitimacy in interviews on Fox and CBS, calling his remarks “deeply disappointing.” He also defended Trump’s recent tweets attacking Lewis, saying Trump “has the right to defend himself.”

The “right,” sure, technically. His doing so isn’t a crime. But should he? Is it a good thing to do? Especially the way he’s doing it? Of course not.

Many Democrats have bristled at the GOP calls to quietly accept Trump’s presidency, pointing to the president-elect’s prominent role in promoting the false “birther” movement to question whether Obama was born in the United States. Trump refused to unequivocally accept Obama’s status as a natural-born U.S. citizen until September — less than two months before Election Day — and has never apologized for his role in spreading doubts.

His role in spreading doubts by lying. John Lewis hasn’t told any damn lies about Trump. It takes lies to throw suspicion on Obama, but it’s the truth that disgraces Trump.
