Obama: Trump 'Violated Core Tenet of Democracy' by Not Accepting Election Results
Former President says Trump 'fabricated and make up a whole bunch of hooey'
Former President Barack Obama claimed Donald Trump violated a core tenet of democracy by not accepting the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
During a video played on CNN’s “Don Lemon Tonight,” which shows a fundraising call for the National Democratic Redistricting Committee with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and former Attorney General Eric Holder, Obama warns "it could happen again."
“Then there is former president Barack Obama, he warns it could happen again, and it could even be worse the next time.”
“In this election, what we saw was my successor, the former president, violate that core tenet that you count the votes and then declare a winner and fabricate and make up a whole bunch of hooey.”

“So that as bad as January 6 was if we had to repeat in future elections in which, let’s say, the Republican-controlled Pennsylvania legislature decided we’re not going to certify all those votes coming out of Philadelphia because we think that those urban votes are shady."
"Imagine what would have happened. We would have had a worse constitutional crisis than we did.”
“That’s actually the perfect word to describe it, hooey.”
Earlier this month, Donald Trump said he never conceded in the 2020 election.
“No, I never admitted defeat,” Trump said.
"I never used the word concede; I have not conceded,” he stated.
Neon Nettle reported that almost one-third of Americans believe that Democrat Joe Biden was elected in November due to widespread voter fraud, according to a new poll.
The poll, conducted by Monmouth University and released this week, shows that 32 percent of voters believe election fraud was behind Biden's "victory" over President Donald Trump.
