Obama rips media, says Clinton was covered unfairly

Image result for liberal tears memePresident Obama rebuked the media on Friday for its coverage of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign, saying she was not "treated fairly."

“I’ve said before that I couldn’t be prouder of Secretary Clinton, her outstanding service,” the president said during his year-end press conference at the White House. “I think she has worked tirelessly on behalf of the American people, and I don’t think she was treated fairly during the election. I think the coverage of her and the issues was troubling.”

Earlier in the briefing, Obama addressed the theft of emails from the Democratic National Committee and John Podesta, Clinton campaign's manager. Those emails were released by WikiLeaks and received heavy media coverage during the campaign.

The president chided the press for not covering the publication of the stolen emails as an assault on national security, given the intelligence community's assessment that Russia carried out those hacks.

WHAT A JOKE! WHAT A LIE!

Yep, but this guy is sick and demented. His mental status is really becoming into question. 

In other words, Obama believes that it is the Media that is responsible for National Security, not him.

Talk about arrogance. But, Clinton also displays her own version of arrogance in the pathetic blaming of , get this, Putin for hacking in order to throw the election to Trump. What?

Putin, according to Clinton, must be so afraid of Clinton in the White House that he would clandestinely support Trump? Hell, if he liked Trump he could have publicly said that he would like to see Trump win.

What puffed up arrogance. She and Obama are sick. Mentally ill. Talk about deplorable.

Just leave and enjoy your vacation.

The reason Hitlery lost was because she had the Most Worthless President & his boyfriend Michael helping her campaign! When you have that many liars & losers helping another liar get elected-somethings going to give! Clinton being a worthless Commie caused her own demise & having liar Bill in the picture didn't help either! Being devil worshipers cost them the election & blaming the Russian's is a "Smoke Screen" to blame others for their FAILURES! They should ALL be prosecuted!

Liberal mainstream media ripped into Trump all the time. All of media and the entire establishment was against Trump. We the people still chose Trump in a huge landslide. Now he is draining the swamp, he is going against the establishment, he is creating good paying jobs with great benefits, he is going to lock her up, he is making America Great Again!

While draining the Swamp, please BEWARE the ALLIGATORS!

Obama has a list of "whines" he has to get out and only 34 more days to do it, as President.

One shouldn't wish their life away, but I'm more than happy to give the next 34 days away! 

Obozo and Moochelle, BE GONE!

Clinton lost because she was going to give America more progressive politics of Obama. 

SUCK IT UP DEMO AMERICA---YOU LOST!

"Elections have consequences"! OBAMA

STOP CRYING, LIFE WILL BE BETTER!

BS!!  The media spent ALL of its time attacking Trump but the U.S. Citizens are not as dumb as obama would like us to be.  What an A**hole!!

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
