Sam Stein: It’s not normal for whom to cast doubt on the legitimacy of elections?
As he does with every tweet, President Trump triggered the press Friday with this tweet about the ballot counting in Arizona:
Just out — in Arizona, SIGNATURES DON’T MATCH. Electoral corruption – Call for a new Election? We must protect our Democracy!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 9, 2018
The Daily Beast’s Sam Stein doesn’t think that’s normal at all for a president.
It’s not normal to have the president of the United States actively trying to throw into doubt the legitimacy of elections https://t.co/E2eF4WcGKg

Thanks, objective journalist John Harwood, for always popping up with the Democrat response. Every time.
No, normally that’s the losing Dem candidate for President. https://t.co/qPWHJ5gIQv

Hi, Sam. Have you heard of a woman named Hillary Clinton?

But you’re ok with Hillary doing it. https://t.co/CJ6bckMANb

Here’s a fun exercise: search Twitter for “illegitimate” and “president” and see how many tweets you get. And Trump’s to blame for that?
Is pushing a “Russian Collusion” narrative and launching an investigation more or less damaging than questioning the legitimacy of a vote?

While true, elected and formerly elected Democrats have been doing this with regards to the 2016 election literally since November 9. https://t.co/8lAZQgv4cG

TWO YEARS, now.
TWO FRIGGIN' YEARS of implying "Russia" with every breath. And this failure of self awareness is suddenly concerned about suggesting that an election might not be valid.

It's also not normal to have elections stolen. https://t.co/gQNAqWHDA9

Forget impeachment: there are still people out there, believe us, who think that Robert Mueller will find that the 2016 election was rigged by Russia and Trump and therefore has to be done over.
You misspelled the Press. https://t.co/DzW0mM04xx

Yes normally this thing is left to an unbiased media. If only we had that. https://t.co/FBEgtxLGrH

No, we don’t want a new election in Arizona, but we also don’t want to hear about Trump after Hillary Clinton made such a big deal of how dangerous it was to question the results of an election, and then did nothing but.
No big deal, just Palm Beach County refusing to comply with the recount court order https://t.co/VqnpmiXUim
