Is Inslee a legitimate governor?

Democratic Rep. John Lewis of Georgia said in an interview that he does not consider President-elect Donald Trump to be a legitimate president. In a preview clip of an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd that ran Sunday on “Meet the Press,” Lewis says his view on Trump’s presidency is attributed to Russian meddling in the presidential election, which he called a “conspiracy.” When Todd asked Lewis if he planned to try work with Trump to pass legislation, Lewis said he believes in forgiveness but that Trump is not legitimate.

So, the tables are turned the Republican are in power and now the Democrats are whining. But wait, if that is true, then the same logic can be used for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee. I live in Everett but I did not vote for him. So the Russian’s must have hacked Washington’s election. Thirty-four counties did not vote for him. Only the most liberal “progressive” Democrats in Whatcom, Snohomish, King, Pierce and Jefferson counties voted in a slight majority. Why it is alright for the Democrats to say anything but not anyone else? But Jay is our governor and he’s a Democrat and he is only asking for $4.4 billion in new taxes. Thank you, five of 39 counties.
