Isn’t it amazing just how fragile and whiny Trump supporters are when the subject turns to lawsuits or other legal action against their orange savior?
On MSNBC Saturday afternoon, the topic was a suit filed Friday by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) against the 2016 Trump campaign, WikiLeaks, Russia, and other entities which helped assure Donald Trump won thanks to the Electoral College, even though he actually lost the popular vote by some 3 million ballots.
Host David set the stage for the debate, announcing:
“This is a 66-page document, among the names in this suit, Julian Assange, Donald Trump, Jr., Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, Jared Kushner, George Papadopoulos, Richard W. Gates — names that are now familiar to a lot of us.”
Fox News mainstay Jen Kerns had this to say in response:
“I think this is sad, I think this shows that the DNC is still not able to get over the 2016 election. You start to doubt what the American people did, you start to tell the American people that their choice of president was wrong in 2016, I think that’s the wrong direction to go.”
Former Hillary Clinton advisor Philippe Reines was more than ready for Kerns, commenting:
“I would love to hear from Jen the answer to a simple question: What on earth is this president — and this Republican Congress — doing and protect our elections?
“And that’s what I think this lawsuit comes down to and it’s a last resort,” he continued. “If the Republican-controlled Congress would have had any committee hearings or any legislation or anything at all to follow-up on its own intelligence, there would be no need to file a lawsuit.”
In response, Kerns managed to shoot herself right in the foot:
“I think a lot has been done. You have Kris Kobach is doing an analysis with each of the Secretaries of States throughout the states. I was an Assistant Secretary of State in California, tasked with ensuring the integrity of the votes.”
Kris Kobach? Really? The head of Trump’s so-called Commission on Election Integrity has been the subject of numerous controversies and specializes in putting up obstacles to people voting.
Raines destroyed Kerns by telling her:
“Jen, with all due respect, when you’re answering the question with Kris Kobach right off the bat, you are absolutely making my point.
“This lawsuit is the only thing that Donald Trump cannot fire and that’s why it’s being filed.”
