Karl Rove Slams Jesse Jackson and Democrats For Saying George W. Bush Wasn’t a Legit President

karl-rove-fox-news-sundayeditedDuring today’s broadcast of Fox News Sunday, panelist and former Bush adviser Karl Rove claimed Democrats were engaging in “hypocrisy” by ripping Donald Trump’s “suspense” debate remarks when they questioned the legitimacy of George W. Bush’s presidency.

Discussing the GOP nominee’s debate answer and his constant complaints that the election is rigged against him, Rove did comment that this is a very dangerous path that he’d going down. He also said Trump did himself a disservice because the news became all about that particular answer, rather than what he had done during the rest of the debate.

The Fox News analyst then focused on liberals and Democrats who have been railing against Trump for playing the rigged game when those same people didn’t accept the results of the 2000 election.

“I want to say something about the hypocrisy of some Democrats on this,” Rove told host Chris Wallace. “The night of the debate, one of the most ardent voices on this was the Reverend Jesse Jackson, the ever voluble, ever heard from Jesse Jackson, who said how dare he do this. This was the guy who, even after the Supreme Court acted in 2000 and ended the election controversy, said Bush is not the legitimately elected President of the United States.”

He also brought up Dick Gephardt and Paul Begala, among others, who have stated that Bush wasn’t legit.
