WATCH: Obama Says That He’s Troubled by GOP’s Willingness to Cast Doubt on Election

Joe Biden didn’t win the 2020 election all by himself. He had a lot of help from people like Stacey Abrams, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Beto O’Rourke and many others. Of course, one of the biggest allies of Biden’s campaign was former president Barack Obama.

Obama spoke for Biden in a number of states including Pennsylvania, Georgia and Florida. And the 44th president is certainly disturbed by the GOP’s attempts to cast doubt on the results of the election. He recently discussed the matter with 60 Minutes.

In a sneak preview to the interview which will air on Sunday, host Scott Pelley asked, “What are these false claims of widespread election fraud doing to our country right now?” Obama answered, “They appear to be motivated – in part because – the president doesn’t like to lose and never admits loss.”

The 44th president continued, “I’m more troubled by the fact that other Republican officials who clearly know better are going along with this, are humoring him in this fashion. It is one more step in delegitimizing not just the incoming Biden administration, but democracy generally. And that’s a dangerous path.”
