Trump’s Chief Of Staff Demands That Obama Forget Birthers And Legitimize Trump

By Jason Easley on Sun, Jan 15th, 2017 at 5:09 pm

On ABC’s This Week President-elect Trump’s incoming chief of staff, Reince Priebus, demanded that President Obama forget about the years of Republican birther attacks and step up to legitimize Trump’s presidency.

Transcript via ABC’s This Week:

STEPHANOPOULOS: Well, the president-elect has stirred up quite a firestorm with his latest tweet. Was this the right fight for him to pick?

PRIEBUS: Well, look, here’s the issue — I and we look up to John Lewis and his historic contribution to civil rights.

STEPHANOPOULOS: But the president-elect said he was all talk, no action.

PRIEBUS: But — let me answer — but here’s the problem, we need folks like John Lewis and others who, I think, have been champions of voter rights, to actually recognize the fact that Donald Trump was duly elected. He’s going to put his hand on the bible in five days. And I think it’s incredibly disappointing, and I think it’s irresponsible for people like himself to question the legitimacy of the next United States president. I think putting the United States down across the world is not something that a responsible person does.

And so look, I think, in fact, I think President Obama could step up. We have had a great relationship with the White House, George. We just had every cabinet person designee of ours meet with the cabinet members of the Obama administration on Friday. I’ve met numerous times with Denis McDonough, they’ve been nothing but helpful.

So, I think the administration can do a lot of good by telling folks that are on their side of the aisle, look, we may have lost the election on the Democrat side, but it’s time to come together.

The Republican argument is basically that when a Democrat wins the White House, it is perfectly fine for them to spend eight years floating baseless conspiracy theory, but when a Republican wins the White House under circumstances that raised questions with 17 intelligence agencies, the country must rally around Trump.

Dear Reince…..

PHUCK.OUTTA.HERE.

No, Boo. It’s not President Obama’s responsibility to legitimize your illegitimate President.

Uh uh.

Not in this lifetime.

Let Joe Clark tell you all that President Obama ‘ must do.’

Saturday Open Thread | Old School Music That Make You Wanna Jump

gq_band_promoGQ was an American group, formed in The Bronx, New York, primarily noted for its success in disco and R&B. The core membership of the group commenced playing professionally, under different group names, as of 1968.

GQ was first formed in 1968 as a quartet called Sabu & the Survivors, with “Sabu” being a moniker of member Keith Crier. The group then evolved in the 1970s as The Rhythm Makers, playing primarily funk music. They were Five Percenters. The Rhythm Makers were composed of Emanuel Rahiem Leblanc (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Keith “Sabu” Crier (bass and vocals).[1] Herb Lane (keyboards and vocals) and Kenny Banks (drums and vocals) The group released one album, Soul On Your Side in 1976 on the De-Lite Records subsidiary Vigor Records, from which the group had one major international dancefloor hit, “Zone”. At the time that Kenny Banks was replaced by Paul Service in 1978, and the group’s manager Tony Lopez suggested that the group name be changed to “GQ”, which stood for “good quality”.[2] They would sign with Arista Records.

GQ became quite successful playing music representative of the period’s disco influenced sound. They had several highly ranked singles in multiple markets (US Pop, US Black, US Disco/Club). Their biggest hit was 1979’s “Disco Nights (Rock-Freak)”, a single from their debut album Disco Nights, which reached #1 (for two weeks) on the R&B singles chart, #3 on the Hot Dance Club Play and #12 on the Billboard Hot 100. It sold over one million copies in the US alone. The track also peaked at #42 in the UK Singles Chart.[3] (It was a reworked version of The Rhythm Makers title-track to Soul On Your Side). The follow-up Billy Stewart remake, “I Do Love You”, was also successful, reaching #20 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Why Steve Harvey’s Coonery today is so disturbing

So, I’m minding my own business, and I read from twitter that Steve Harvey’s taken his cooning behind to Trump Tower to see #NotMyPresident.

He comes out, and this is the bullshyt that he’s spreading.

JUST IN: Entertainer Steve Harvey says he will team up with Housing Secretary-designate Ben Carson on inner city initiative

The same Ben Carson, who is wholly unqualified to lead the Department of HUD.

Did you watch his hearings? It’s clear he hasn’t a clue as to what the Department actually does.

So now, we have an unqualified Secretary of Housing coupled with a comedian.

Do you not see how ridiculous this is?

.@IAmSteveHarvey: “It’s an honor to be invited to talk & I think that’s the only way we’re going to unify our country – we’ve got to talk.”

We’ve got to talk?

Negro, what the hell are you talking about?

PragmaticObotsUnite @PragObots

You mean the same @realDonaldTrump who was sued TWICE by the DOJ for racial housing discrimination?

Why is it always someone BLACK willing to shin and grin.

This racist piece of garbage, who did nothing but disrespect our President, as well as Blacks, Latinos, Asians and Muslims…..

We’ve got to talk?

Talk about what?

Will America inaugurate an illegitimate president? Rep John Lewis says doesn’t see Trump as a “legitimate president”

john-lewis-says-he-doesnt-see-trump-as-legitimate-presidentRep John Lewis is a Civil Rights icon, a man of stature and he is saying he doesn’t see Donald Trump as a legitimate president.

What was revealed in that briefing? Some Dems are shook, outraged, confidence gone.

In an exclusive interview with NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) said he does not believe Donald Trump is a “legitimate president,” citing Russian interference in last year’s election.

Asked whether he would try to forge a relationship with the president-elect, Lewis said that he believes in forgiveness, but added, “it’s going to be very difficult. I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president.”

When pressed to explain why, he cited allegations of Russian hacks during the campaign that led to the release of internal documents from the Democratic National Committee, and Hillary Clinton’s campaign co-chairman, John Podesta.

“I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton,” Lewis told NBC News’ Chuck Todd.

Trump appeared to acknowledge this week that Russia did engage in hacking during the campaign, but he has vigorously argued that any foreign interference had no impact on the election’s outcome.

The long-serving Georgia Congressman and civil rights leader also said that he would not attend President-elect Trump’s swearing-in. “I don’t plan to attend the inauguration. It will be the first one that I miss since I’ve been in Congress. You cannot be at home with something that you feel that is wrong, is not right.”
