Mara Gay joined Ari Melber on Thursday night to discuss the ongoing refusal of the Republican Party to accept that Joe Biden won the election (he did) and that Donald Trump lost (he did). What is behind it? Well, Mara breaks it down...and this is most concise explanation I have seen:
It's not just that Donald Trump is undermining Joe Biden, right? It's that he's delegitimizing and as are his allies, they are delegitimizing the votes of Americans that voted differently than Donald Trump supporters. So you're making them un-American and let's not forget that this country has really only been a truly representative Democracy in any form for a few decades so that history is far closer and we don't have to look overseas to see what anti-democratic movements look like. You can look in the American south just a few decades ago.
