Members of Trump’s team have asked President Obama to appeal to the unhinged leftists tearing apart American cities because they’re angry Trump won. And he refused! What vindictive man.
The Hill reports:
Obama won’t call off anti-Trump protesters
President Obama won’t try to call off protests against Donald Trump, he said Thursday, ignoring pleas from the president-elect’s advisers to denounce the nationwide demonstrations.
“I would not advise people who feel strongly or are concerned about some of the issues that have been raised over the course of the campaign, I would not advise them to be silent,” Obama said during a joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Obama said protests are just something Trump would have to get used to as the leader of the free world.
“I’ve been the subject of protests during the course of my eight years,” he said. “And I suspect that there’s not a president in our history that hasn’t been subject to these protests.”
Make no mistake. Obama is doing this out of spite.
Conservatives may have protested Obama’s policies in the form of the Tea Party. But they didn’t riot after his election in 2008. And they didn’t disrupt his inauguration as these leftists have vowed to do with Trump.
Obama’s refusal to intervene makes him look like a very small man.
