Danbury Mayor on Trump: ‘We Need to Move On’
On the Thursday morning (11/19/20) Ethan and Lou Show on I-95, we asked Danbury Mayor, Mark Boughton, about Donald Trump's unwillingness to concede the 2020 Presidential Election. This is what the Republican Mayor had to say:
"I don't know, I think he's coming to terms with the fact that he did not win the election. Ya know, it's so frustrating but look, one thing, I would concede that there are always problems with elections on this size/scale, but those problems are not large enough to overturn the election.
It doesn't matter, I don't care if you are electing somebody for dog catcher, there's always going to be somebody's ballot is spoiled or, ya know, crazy stuff like that. So, everything is not a conspiracy and we need to move on and I think he's just gotta come to terms with that."
We asked the Mayor about the traditional transition of power in the Oval Office and the Mayor had these comments:
"Yeah, he should, he absolutely should and I think he doesn't have to concede, there is nothing in the law that says somebody has to concede. I mean, just get it out of the way and let the transition begin and spend time at Mar-A-Lago going golfing.
You know, as somebody who thinks that the President did a lot of good things but just couldn't stay off Twitter, I think that's the best advice I would give him and you know at the end of the day, the country is bigger than any one person. The voters have spoken and let's move on."
Later, Boughton said:
"He shouldn't undermine the Democratic process, he really shouldn't and look, I'm on the same team, allegedly and so he should not undermine the process, it's not good for democracy. People need to have faith when they go to the voting booth that their vote counts and they matter and when you run around saying crazy stuff that doesn't make any sense, your lawsuits are thrown out one after another, it's not good for the country."
