Donald Trump had better watch out.
President Obama, as most Americans are aware by now – and as he just confirmed in a new report – isn’t planning on disappearing from the public stage come January 20, when Donald Trump formally takes over the White House.
But perhaps it’s not yet clear just how involved Obama plans to be, or how involved he already has been, in terms of trying to undercut Trump’s upcoming presidency.
Well, count the ways, and at least seven emerge.
First, he betrayed Israel at the United Nations by ordering his U.S. ambassador to the United Nations to abstain from voting on a resolution the demanded the Jewish state stop building in settlement areas. Obama could have vetoed the resolution, but didn’t, and the abstention in effect allowed it pass.
But that’s just one. There are many more to consider, as Breitbart noted:
Obama’s started “a new Cold War with Russia,” enacted a “ban on oil drilling,” declared two national monuments totalling 553 million acress, eliminated “the national immigration registry,” transferred over 150 detainees from Guantanamo Bay, and consistently, loudly and viciously declared Trump to whomever would listed as an inept White House leader.
On that last, Breitbart expressed outrage.
“It’s hard to remember a previous instance of the outgoing president attacking the legitimacy of his successor this way, especially during the transition, before the new chief executive has actually done anything. And it’s probably not over yet,” the news outlet wrote.
The politically astute would agree with that: Obama still has almost three weeks to stir the pot of dissension and he’s certain to take as full advantage as possible.
Obama continues to be a thorn in Trump’s side and really, nobody is surprised. Even though he claimed to want a smooth transition, we’re all finding out now that it was just complete and utter bullsh**.
But really, we shouldn’t have believed that little buddy-buddy display, anyway. Obama will NOT disappear without a fight, that’s for damn sure.
