UNREAL! Obama FINALLY Speaks About Protests…Has ONLY THESE 7 Words!
By Kathy Shaidle|November 18, 2016

Angry supporters of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders took to the streets right after Trump won the election, and many are still at it, vowing to continue their often-violent protests.

(Ironically, it turns out many of those so-called fans of Bernie and Hillary didn’t even vote on November 8 and are now the ones chanting: “This is what democracy looks like”…)

One of the president’s jobs is to address the nation during times of turmoil, discouraging this kind of ugly display. However, Obama took almost an entire week to talk about these riots publicly, and he waited until he was in another country to do so. But that wasn’t the worst part.

Politico reports:

President Barack Obama has little sympathy for President-elect Donald Trump when it comes to the protests against him, and he offered up some advice for his successor: Get used to it.

“I’ve been the subject of protests during the course of my eight years,” Obama said at a joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday. “And I suspect that there’s not a president in our history that hasn’t been subject to these protests. So, I would not advise people who feel strongly or who are concerned about some of the issues that have been raised during the course of the campaign, I wouldn’t advise them to be silent.”

Yes, demonstrators targeted LBJ, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, but there have never been protests like these — violent, ongoing riots — directed at Obama. Is he actually thinking of peaceful gatherings like those of the Tea Party movement? It’s a mystery.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump was successfully pressed to tell the perpetrators of imaginary “hate crimes” to “stop it” when he was interviewed on 60 Minutes.

Incredible.
