  Obama Issues Major Threat to Trump Before Leaving Office

Share on Facebook 

Barack Obama has broken plenty of traditions during his time in office, 
and the outgoing president is yet again breaking another one, this time 
regarding former presidents jumping into the political fray after 
their term is up.

The New York Times 
reported that during his final news conference in office, Obama included 
a number of conditions that would cause him to get back into politics 
and openly oppose incoming President Donald Trump. Surprise, surprise, 
one of them involved rolling back his most controversial executive order 

“There’s a difference between that normal functioning of politics and 
certain issues or certain moments where I think our core values may be 
at stake,” Obama said.

And what a shocker: those “core values” all had to do with things Trump 
was elected to change.

“I put in that category, 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 said. “I’d put in that category institutional efforts to silence 
dissent or the press. 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.”

That all sounds great until you break it down. When he talks about 
“systematic discrimination being ratified in some fashion” and “explicit 
or functional obstacles to people being able to vote,” what he really 
means is enacting voter ID legislation 
“(I)nstitutional efforts to silence dissent or the press” sounds a lot 
like not acquiescing to every demand of the liberal media.

And then,of course, there’s the last part — basically, the president is 
saying that he’ll return to the public forum if Trump abrogates Obama’s 
monumentally unconstitutional executive actions on illegal immigration. 
Apparently, in Obama’s febrile mind, enforcing immigration laws

something akin to pogroms.

This isn’t the first time the current president has intimated that he 
would break the tradition of allowing the new administration to govern 
without the interference of its predecessor. In November, The New York 
reported, Obama told a conference call of supporters that, “You’re going 
to see me early next year, and we’re going to be in a position where we 
can start cooking up all kinds of great stuff to do.”

And yet, this was why Trump was elected. America was sick of Obama’s 
policies and wanted someone to change them. Maybe having Obama around 
won’t be such a bad thing, after all — just to remind us why we voted 
Republican in the first place.
