Obama White House Refuses to Call Trump ‘Legitimate’ President

Written by  Joel B. Pollak

Outgoing White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough declined to call President-elect Donald Trump “legitimate” when questioned by CNN’s Jake Tapper on State of the Union on Sunday morning.

McDonough would only say that President Barack Obama considered Donald Trump’s election “freely elected.

He added that the Democrats that are boycotting Trump’s inauguration on Friday have “significant” concerns.

Specifically, McDonough suggested that Trump’s election was influenced by Russia. He also suggested Trump could allay those concerns by “reaching out” to Democrats who refused to attend the ceremony.

The following exchange took place:

Tapper: There are now at least eighteen House democrats who are boycotting the Trump inauguration. Does President Obama think that’s appropriate, or do they think, does he think they should follow his lead and attend for the sake of honoring the office and the peaceful transfer of power?

McDonough: Well, the president has made very clear since the election that we should do everything in our power in this transition period to make sure that the next president and his team are up and ready to go. In fact, on Tuesday night in a speech he called him the “freely elected” President of the United States. So that’s the charge that we have taken.

That's alright, Being a Muslim and never accepting Jesus as his personal savior even though he calls himself a Christian, Obama will only be recognized in the Hellish Pit, will never make it to Heaven. and Jesus will say I never knew you.

And every time a Conservatard snivels about 'cant we all just get along' I laugh at the hypocrisy and dishonesty and stupidity of the Reich wing extremists who are determined to destroy this country and turn it over to the 1%ers who are only interested in feathering their own nests and lining their own pockets

Sounds to me that you can't stand losing but guess what?, you LOST. I hope you cry for the next eight years because it provides a great sense of pleasure in people like me who actually understand how much the democrats screwed this country up. The great Donald Trump will come to our rescue and we will finally have a country worth living in. And I hope he doesn't try to work with the whiny liberals that would not work with him if they had won. Donald Trump's win, or should I say slaughter, over Clinton is the best thing that ever happened to this country and his presidency will go down in the history books as one of the greatest and most prosperous times in our history. I only wish there was a way to stop democrats that didn't vote for Mr. Trump from prospering under his leadership because they surely do not deserve it. Democrats are going to lose even more seats in the midterms when they see how well the republicans run things.

Does that mean he thinks his presidency IS legitimate ? Who is he trying to kid ? If there was ever an illegitimate president , it is Barak H. Obama ! We only have less than five days , now , to get rid of the REAL, ONE AND ONLY illegitimate president ! I can hardly wait !

Why should anyone be interested in what an Obama official says after American voters soundly defeated him and his party? These people are history, dustbin history.

"He also suggested Trump could allay those concerns by “reaching out” to Democrats who refused to attend the ceremony."

It's not PRESIDENT-ELECT Donald J. Trump's responsibility, as the duely ELECTED 45th PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES to go to the deniers!!

It's the whining sniffling pampers-attired left-wing liberal socialist hate-driven race-baiting PC demoncrats to 'reach out' to PRESIDENT-ELECT Donald J. Trump and convey their baseless concerns and offer to work with PRESIDENT-ELECT Donald J. Trump and help the inner cities, restore public respect for law enforcement and hold them responsible for proper police work, help fix the obama-momma UNaffordable UNcaring MANDATE, etc.

First of all thanks to Obama and Hillary the Democratic Party has found itself caught up in their own deceit and lies. The Democratic Party died in the 60s and was taken over by the social progressives in the counterculture hippies, flower children, and cowards. If you doubt this find a Democrat who is 50 years old or older and ask him to describe what the Democratic Party stands for. I guarantee that it will be unrecognizable from the trash that's running the Democratic Party now.
With Obama calling Trump illegitimate is probably one of the best jokes of the year. No one knows where Obama came from, they don't know what his grades were in college, they don't know anything about his social background, and suppose it classmates and instructors do not remember him at all. And you would remember someone who grew up to be president.

These screwballs on the left need to get over it, THEY LOST, and they lost because of their candidate and their foundation of lies and traders dealings. The same thing happened when Obama was elected the only difference was that he was able to play the race card and more importantly no one bothered to check the illegal votes and out now voter fraud.

You look at the US map with all the counties showing on the map and the only places where Hillary won where the areas in the cities that were dominated by the uneducated, slow witted, bottom feeders who are incapable of taking care of themselves. They depend on the taxpayers for everything because they are either too stupid or too lazy to get an education and get a job. These are your fundamental Democrats voters that are bought and paid for by taxpayer money.

This election something changed the rest of America realized that they have been lied to, misled, and totally ignored by not only the Democrats but by Washington as a whole. We were sick and tired of career politicians who spend 10% of their time doing the jobs that the office was supposedly responsible for 30% of the time in wasting taxpayer money on frivolous parties and free vacations all over the world at taxpayer money. The other 60% of the time the users running for office to make sure they don't lose their cushy job and benefits package. The career politician is the lowest form of life on the face of the earth.
These people are the ones who decided that enough is enough. Were sick of career politicians and were sick of maggots like the Clintons, the Obama's, and other past administrations. Trump was elected because he is not a politician, is not a member of the good old boys club, he honestly appreciates what America stands for because of the opportunities granted to all Americans.
He hasn't even taken the oath of office and already he is saved America more than $1 billion in defense contracts alone is saved American jobs going overseas and has commitments from other corporations to bring jobs back to America. He also has a commitment from an organization to invest over $3 billion in America building factories and creating more jobs.

If you want an illegitimate president look no further than Barack Hussein Obama who is a traitor to his nation,a disgrace to America, has alienated most of our allies around the globe, brought us to the brink of the Civil War, is working overtime to try to pick a fight with Russia, has stolen over 500,000 acres of lands belonging to the states, has increased the national debt more than all previous presidents combined, as pretty much destroyed our healthcare industry, and is given the green light to perverts, dirty old man, to be allowed in the women's restrooms and dressing rooms proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that he's a pervert himself.
Even more so he has done less for the black community than any previous administration all the way back to Lyndon Baines Johnson. He is set race relations back to what they were before the 60s and has increased racial hatred a hundredfold. He's brought higher unemployment to the black community, lower paying jobs, and has increased food stamp and welfare programs. The latest revelation come from his team of attorneys that have been trying to cover his rear end for eight years by hiding and burying his background and personal history. They publicly stated and admitted that Obama's birth certificate on file IS A FORGERY.

I refused to call Obama my President,for (8)sickening years,but I made it through
He tried to take my Country down,he tried to open our borders, to every terrorist
in the world,he gave our Taxpayers money to those haters and raciest,not to mention
his Islamist friends.I cried when he got reelected,I thought,we were doomed for sure.
He couldn't prove then and he can't prove now,that he is an American Citizen,he's a
practicing Muslim,so get off Trump,he's an American.

Trump is more Legitimate than Obuttface who wasn't born he crawled out from under a rock.
