Laura Clawson — The new birtherism? Donald Trump is setting the stage to delegitimize Hillary Clinton's presidency


Yes, I know that Daily Kos is a Democratic organ, but this has legs and Laura Clawson is not the first to notice it. The US is deeply divided and likely to become much more so, regardless of the outcome of the election. IF Trump wins,  the bipartisan establishment will unite to wreck his presidency, and if HRC wins, the populist right will delegitimize her as they did with Obama, forcing Republicans in Congress to continue obstruction. Unless Democrats take the presidency and both branches of Congress. Even then, the divisiveness will manifest in other ways, only more asymmetrically.

"I haven’t seen it since 1860, this threat of delegitimizing the federal government, and Trump is trying to say our entire government is corrupt and the whole system is rigged"

It's Trump's fault that Hillary is corrupt. It's Trump's fault that Dems have marginalized poor whites, It's Trump's fault that Hillary was exposed cheating Bernie out of the election. And everyone should just accept this, and play nice happy family. Seriously? Trump is a Nazi fascist in your article, give me a break. Deluded. The country will get over the election, and Dems will continue their elitist ways and the disenchantment will grow from the right and left, waiting for the next charismatic leader for the Dems to call Racist, Sexist, Nazis. Because that is what Dems do. And they know all those other policies they don't like are impossible to even compromise on.

Looks like it's over for Trump. A dozen women have come forward alleging sexual abuse.
