The one thing Obama has proven with his last days in office is that he doesn’t have any class. The sophomoric behavior of this lame duck president reflects poorly on his days in office, but it’s also just downright embarrassing for the American people. In his last press conference, Obama issued one final ugly threat to Donald Trump, and it deserves a colossal amount of ridicule.
While Obama takes himself far too seriously, the rest of America sees an old toothless predator growling and slobbering at the new alpha male. In addition to all of the last minute sentence commutations, participation awards, and idiotic foreign policy agreements, Obama went off the deep end to ensure his legacy is forever laughable.
According to Daily Mail, Obama used his last press conference as president to issue a warning to President-elect Donald Trump in regard to changing “core values.” He said, if there was systemic discrimination, efforts to silence dissent, or to roll back voting rights, he would be speaking out.
Over his tenure, Obama has done a lot of damage to our voting laws, and he wanted to warn Trump not to mess with the status quo of loose voting and citizenship laws. “If I saw systematic discrimination being ratified in some fashion. I put in that category explicit or functional obstacles to people being able to vote, to exercise their franchise,” Obama claimed.
According to The New York Post, Obama also used the opportunity to tell America that he will jump back in if he sees Trump interfering with Dreamers, children who were brought to the United States that Obama illegally granted citizenship to.
He said, “And for me, at least, I would put in that category efforts to round up kids who have grown up here and for all practical purposes are American kids, and send them someplace else, when they love this country, they are our kids’ friends and their classmates and are now entering into community colleges or in some cases serving in our military.”
He continued, “The notion that we would just arbitrarily, or because of politics, punish those kids, when they didn’t do anything wrong themselves, I think would be something that would merit me speaking out. It doesn’t mean that I would get on the ballot anywhere.”
Well, thank goodness Obama isn’t threatening to run for any kind of office in the near future. For all of the empty threats and warnings he made during his last press conference, Obama did say one thing we all wanted to hear. He said, “I want to do some writing. I want to be quiet a little bit and not hear myself talk so darn much.”
Yes, Mr. President, America is also sick and tired of hearing you talk. A long period of silence from you is exactly what this country needs.
