Misplaced Moral Outrage (At least I think so)

I was reading through some news here.  There’s a feud going on between a Georgia Representative and civil rights activist John Lewis and President Elect Donald Trump.  After referring to the president elect as “not a legitimate president”, Donald had the following to say
“Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results, All talk, talk, talk — no action or results. Sad!”

I’ve read it over and over. I agree with it except for perhaps the “all talk” part of the tweet.  I don’t know what John Lewis’ record as a representative is (and I’d be willing to bet a lot of money that Trump doesn’t either) but I would think that his civil rights record speaks for itself.  However, to say that this tweet demonstrates his disdain for the African-American community or that he is “spitting in the face” of all black people is simply ridiculous.  It does nothing of the sort.

Like it or not, Trump is the legitimate President.  All of this whining and moaning about him not being a legitimate president, or Russian hacking effecting the results of the election are starting to get really old.  Yes, he’s an idiot and an ignoramus and an egomaniac.  He won the election fair and square and whether you voted for him or not, whether you like him or not, he’s your President.  The democrats had their chance, and they blew it.  Just think how incompetent and out of touch you have to be to lose a general election to an illiterate orangutan internet troll.  (Granted Hillary won the popular vote but not the one that counted)  No really – sit and think about that.  Instead of railing against Trump, maybe try and figure out how you could f*&k something up so bad so you don’t make the same mistake 4 years from now.
