This is How Presidential Transitions are Supposed to be

One of the cornerstones of our democracy is the peaceful transition from one administration to another. It signals that there is a respect for the country and for the end result of a Presidential election.

As we all are too keenly aware of, you know who has far too many people believing that his loss was due to voter fraud. In denying the Biden/Harris transition team access to the necessary materials needed to do their job, the message from the current administration is loud and clear. They are concerned with soothing their boss’s fragile ego than following the will of the people.

Over the last few days, former First Daughter and granddaughter Jenna Bush Hager has been reflecting on how her late grandfather, George H.W. Bush and father, George W. Bush graciously welcomed the next President into the White House.

The letter from her grandfather to then President elect Bill Clinton states the following:

“Dear Bill, when I walked into this office just now I felt the same sense of wonder and respect that I felt four years ago. I know you will feel that, too. I wish you great happiness here,”

She also fondly recalls how she, her sister, and her mother were tour guides for Michelle Obama and her girls when President Obama won the election twelve years ago.

This is how Presidential transitions are supposed to be. But it cannot happen if you know who refuses to concede the election.
