The legitimacy of the election is one thing. The legitimacy of his behavior in office is quite another.

Thank you for your comments.

Terry, I question the outcome of the election for one thing.The electoral college plays a role as well.Trump's behaviour is more than questionable. His criminal acts alone are intolerable. His unpredictability is cause for potential danger not only to the USA but to the whole world. Spiegel.online has issued a psychogram of him. There has been one on Facebook as well. Both confirm the weak personality traits in Trump, the explosive nature.

JMac, are you referring to the incident about Obama?

Kosher, there are so many signs of racism and other factors that I am concerned about the parallel structures we have had in 1933, the time when Hitler pressed into politics.

The eery part about the whole situation is that Bannon has the strings in his hands, a man from the far right who has already intermingled with the far right movements in Europe.

None of which, sadly, affects his legitimacy given the crazy US election system. His unfitness - no question. I'm sure we would never have let Germany institute such an undemocratic system in 1945.

I couldn't find the psychogram on Spiegel.online - could you link? (Preferably the English version. Ironically my mother's family spoke primarily German for the first 75 years in this country but once they went to English apparently they went all in and we're now all  mono-lingual like good Americans!)

" ... The legitimacy ought to be scrutinized."

Federalizing the presidential election process, making it all on-line, secured and verifiable --state registries be damned-- couldnt hurt a bit.
