WATCH: Obama Calls Trump’s Claims Of A Rigged Election ‘Ridiculous’

Share

President Obama held a news conference at the Pentagon on Thursday to discuss the war on ISIS, but as its been the case every time he answers reporters’ questions lately, he ended up responding to the latest ridiculous Trump controversy.

This time, it was about the GOP’s nominee’s claims that the November presidential election could be rigged.

“Of course the election won’t be rigged. What does that mean?” Obama said. “If Mr. Trump is suggesting that there is a conspiracy theory that is propagated across the country, including in places like Texas where typically it is not Democrats who are in charge of voting booths, that’s ridiculous. That doesn’t make any sense.”

Obama also used the opportunity to once again raise concerns about Trump’s ability to serve as commander-in-chief of the world’s most powerful nation.

“Just listen to what Mr. Trump has to say and make your own judgment with respect to how confident you feel about his ability to manage things like our nuclear triad,” Obama warned. “This is serious business.”

        Safe to say it was a snark but I still question the legitimacy of the 2000 election which was very suspicious. At least Al Gore didn’t create a constitutional crisis like Mr. Trump will likely do no matter how badly he gets beaten

            Trump is the one who should be locked up having sex with a 13 yo. Also for telling Russia to please hack the DNC looking for emails. Sounds treasonous to me. Judge Curiel will mete out some justice when Trump has to go before him in December. That will make a very Merry Christmas to all

            And you support a candidate who asks why he can’t use nuclear weapons as a first option. I’m fully awake unfortunately some people can’t see how unqualified a candidate Trump truly is. He lacks the temperament & good judgement required to be President. In all honesty I believe he’s mentally ill which is why so many conservatives will not support him. He claims he alone can take care of Americas problems. I could possibly have supported John Kasich who is sane & well qualified. You sir are the one that needs to get out of your rigid state of thinking.

    Many of us are very concerned with what may happen if Trump wins. Others are seriously concerned with the reaction of his supporters if he loses. Civil war? Remember these morons are angry, armed and uneducated.

    If anything, the election is being rigged for Trump. Most of those voter ID laws are still in place.

      I agree with you. I never had any misgivings voting for Mr. Obama & the strong jobs report yesterday shows the economy is moving in the right direction. It’s sad that the Republican Party is now the face of Trump. Lots of hate but America will be stronger in the end by electing our first female President. I could easily block the likes of GBA but I’m ready to rebut their ridiculous hateful comments.
