Former President Barack Obama has slammed Republicans who clearly should know better for standing by President Donald Trump’s legal move to contest the election results in several states, adding that it delegitimizing “democracy generally.”
The former president’s comments aired partly on “CBS News with Norah O’Donnell,” while the full interview is scheduled for broadcast Sunday on “60 Minutes.”
“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,” said Obama.
He, however, added that “It is one more step in delegitimizing not just the incoming Biden administration, but democracy generally. And that’s a dangerous path.
“They appear to be motivated, in part because the president doesn’t like to lose and never admits loss”.
There hasn’t been any official response from the Republicans so far.
