Here’s what William McGurn has to say in the WSJ about the strange reasoning of some anti-Trump elites:
Threat to American Democracy
The people aren’t stupid. The 63 million Americans who voted for Mr. Trump—some as an unappealing but better alternative to Mrs. Clinton, but many with gusto—recognize that what is going on here is a concerted effort to overturn the results of a legitimate presidential election. Is it really unreasonable to ask whether this might be as much of a threat to American democracy as anything Mr. Trump has said or done?
Here’s Holman Jenkins in his Business World WSJ column:
That Mr. Comey helped elect Mr. Trump makes it especially ironic that his early publicity tour has been so much devoted to bad-mouthing Mr. Trump’s character. Mr. Trump’s flaws are old news—he’s been bad-mouthed for decades by writers more knowledgeable and insightful than Mr. Comey. Millions of voters preferred him to the establishment alternatives anyway. This is the real news that continues to stick in the craw of Mr. Comey and many others.

Jenkins goes on to add, “Putin is right about one thing: Washington has gone insane.
Big Brother is here and his name is Mark Zuckerberg. Who knew? Last week he promised to use artificial intelligence to regulate speech on Facebook.
The UK is experiencing a crime wave – murder by knife. So now there’s a call for reasonable knife control measures. And London Mayor Sadiq Khan stands ready to enforce them.
The mayor says, “there is never a reason to carry a knife.” Not only that, “Anyone who does will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law.”
