Lewis’ claims about Trump being an illegitimate president is based on that the incoming president lost the national popular vote by 3 million votes and only won several key states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Florida, and North Carolina by a total of 100K votes. It is also based on intelligence reports stating that the Russian government orchestrated a coordinated effort to try to influence the recent presidential election by disseminating inflammatory stories and an e-mail hacking operation in order to discredit Hillary Clinton.

But back to Mr. Preibus’s claim that Republicans never questioned Obama’s legitimacy to office, I wonder if he has ever heard of Google.

This is what I found

Wikipedia has an article dedicated to Obama citizenship conspiracy theories.

Maybe Priebus could talk to his boss about delegitimizing Obama’s presidency. After all it was Trump who claimed that people who went to school with Obama never saw him (rated Pants on Fire by PolitiFact), was called out by The View Panelists Joy Behr & Whoopi Goldberg on the claim that Obama wasn’t born in this country, and was embarrassed by Obama at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner.

By the way, Priebus was the RNC Chair for a majority of the Obama’s presidency and allowed this spectacle to happen. In April 2011, Trump received an introductory phone call from Priebus when Trump was flirting with a presidential bid.

And now Priebus is asking Obama, the president whose legitimacy was frequently questioned, to step up and quite Democrats who question Trump’s legitimacy.

My answer to Priebus is this

Why should he?
