Joe Manchin Rejects Fellow Democrat John Lewis: TRUMP IS LEGITIMATE PRESIDENT ELECT (VIDEO)

Rep. John Lewis caused quite a stir this week by saying he doesn’t accept Donald Trump as a legitimate president elect. He blames Russia for Hillary’s loss, naturally.

Senator Joe Manchin, a fellow Democrat from West Virginia rejects that idea. He accepts Trump as legitimate, as he said in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

“There is no doubt the Russians were involved in hacking, they were responsible for the hacking,” Manchin said. “But there is no credible evidence showing that that intervened and had one iota to do with the outcome of the election.”

Manchin mentioned Trump’s overwhelming victory in his home state of West Virginia as an example of how the president-elect won before calling for national unity.

Good for you, Joe!

John Lewis is still just having sour grapes. He’s angry that a Republican won. He’d be angry over any Republican winning.
