Former President Barack Obama raised the alarm over how a majority of the GOP is throwing its support behind President Donald Trump as he falsely denies that he lost the election to President-elect Joe Biden and spouts bogus accusations of voter fraud.
During a pre-taped interview on “60 Minutes,” Obama speculated that his successor’s lies about “illegal” voting “appear to be motivated, in part, because the President doesn’t like to lose and never admits loss.”
“I’m more troubled by the fact that other Republican officials who clearly know better are going along with this, are humoring him in this fashion,” Obama added.
“It is one more step in delegitimizing not just the incoming Biden administration, but democracy generally,” he continued. “And that’s a dangerous path.”
Few Republican lawmakers have acknowledged Biden as the winner of the race, though the number has been growing slowly as Trump’s desperate efforts to undermine the election with furious tweets and clumsy court battles continually prove to be a failure.
