Since election night in November, liberals and Democrats have cried out over the loss for Hillary Clinton. They blamed everyone from FBI Director James Comey to the Russians to their own staff. Since day one, they have complained about the electoral college and dismissed the voting rights of millions of Americans who do not live in major cities.
The electoral college worked in November the way it was designed to. It was created to ensure that large cities and large states could not hold a monopoly on the presidency. To say that President-elect Trump is an illegitimate president despite winning in the electoral college is, therefore ludicrous. Yet that is exactly what continues to happen.
Huffington Post contributor Alex Mohajer wrote a column for the paper where he called for the courts to get involved to prevent President-elect Trump from taking the Oath of Office on Friday.
“The evidence is clear,” Mohajer wrote. “Courts must use the broad discretionary powers with which they are vested to enjoin Donald Trump, an illegitimate president, from taking office.” Instead, he claims that Hillary Clinton is the rightful president and that the election was “stolen” from her. His argument is based on Clinton’s win of the popular vote, the way Trump’s campaign was run, Russian interference and Comey’s late decision to re-open the investigation into Clinton’s email practices.
Mohajer appeared on Fox News with host Tucker Carlson Wednesday to defend his column. Carlson blasted his arguments, calling out Mohajer on the fact that one of his sources was a newsletter published by an anti-Semitic organization. That publication argued that the Russian government recruited Trump to run for office more than a decade ago.
“It’s a piece by a lunatic!” Carlson declared. But Mohajer attacked Carlson’s history with The Daily Caller rather than discussing his own piece and his own source.
“You say that we need to remove Donald Trump from the presidency for the sake of Democracy,” Carlson continued. “So you had over 60 million people vote for him and you’re saying that one judge or a panel of judges removing him would be more democratic than election results. It seems like the opposite of democracy to me.”
