Donna Brazile: Trump Victory Not Legitimate — ‘This Election Will Always Have an Asterisk’


Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile said President Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in 2016 presidential campaign was not legitimate, Brazile said, “My personal view is that it was not a legitimate election.” She continued, “Remember, I was the campaign manager of Al Gore in 2000, where, as you well know, the Supreme Court decided.
