President Obama Tells It Like Is As Is STILL His Right To Do Until January 20

Today during a press conference, President Barack Obama responded to a reporter who asked if he is uneasy about President-elect Donald Trump‘s close ties to Russia and Vladimir Putin. Obama responded that

He began by addressing the
intelligence report that indicates Russia had a hand in influencing the election, then moved on to what that meant for politics in America.

This is part of what I meant when I said we gotta think about what’s happening to our political culture here. The Russians can’t change us or significantly weaken us. They’re a smaller country, they’re a weaker country, their economy doesn’t produce anything that anyone wants to buy except oil and gas and arms. They don’t innovate but they can impact us if we lose track of who we are. They can impact us if we abandon our values. Mr Putin can weaken us just like he’s trying to weaken Europe if we start buying into notions that it’s okay to intimidate the press or lock up dissidents or discriminate against people because of their faith or what they look like.”'

Donald doesn't like it when you bad mouth his guy. I mean his on his fourth leg of his victory tour now thanks to comrade Putin. But, sadly, for Donald, everyone except the most tone deaf wingnut now believe that the Russians were all in when it comes to getting trump elected.

Of course, if you are trump, this is the last thing you want to hear, and it is the worst thing that you could do to his huge ---but very fragile--- ego.

Possibly the swan song of a once pretty cool place to live. I still have some hope that this will wake most of the people up in this country and do something about this slide into craziness. It's still one of the two best country's to live in but the fact that a percentage of folks are stark raving ignorant could bring us down. I was born in 1950, so I think I got to grow up in the best of times. Sure would be a shame to let the extreme elements of our society rule over this great place.

No matter who was President I was always secure in the fact that there were smart people around him that would keep things from getting out of control. I no longer feel that. Trump is such an amateur and not a diplomat so he has no business being President. The joke is over. When I hear about him not using Secret Service but his own private force and his recent fuck up over that Drone that China has I am fearful for us all.

No shit. The people around him are even more despicable than he is, and that's saying a lot.

They are gonna loot that place five ways to Sunday. But to his believers Commisar Trump can do no wrong. I hope there is a moment when that changes but they will NEVER admit they were wrong about him. Just like Trump himself.
