Reporter Asks WH if Obama Thinks He’s ‘the Emperor of the United States’

“Does the President still stand by what he said last year when he said, ‘I am not the emperor of the United States; my job is to execute laws that are passed.’ Is that still operative?” asked Jonathan Karl, reporter for ABC, during Tuesday’s White House press briefing.

“Absolutely,” replied White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest.

“Not a king either?” asked Karl, to audience chuckles.

“That’s right,” said Earnest flatly.

“Because [Obama] was asked very specifically about the idea of expanding the deferred action executive order for the DREAMers to their parents. And he said September 17th last year on Telemundo, very clearly: ‘If we start broadening that, then essentially I would be ignoring the law in a way that would be very difficult to defend so that is not an option. Is that still off the table?" asked Karl

Note that all of Obama's hired liars always refer to Immigration as a "Broken System".  Immigration works if the laws are enforced.  They use this phrase"broken": as propaganda.  If you tell a lie often enough it soon becomes fact. Reporters should respond with: "current Immigration laws have worked well for years, until we had a President and AG ignoring the law the make it look "Broken".

Also note that Josh Ernst , Liar-in-Chief, responds to Karl by refusing to say what Obama will do.  He says we'll have to wait until Obama takes action on Amnesty before we know what his action will be,  Sounds like Obamacare  "We'll have to pass the bill before we can see what's in it." It is clear to anyone that Obama has made himself King, and that he and his staff believe that all his "subjects" are STUPID !

the real issue here are the 3 branches of government....and congress is there to act as a check and balance from a president doing exactly what Obama is and has been doing. the will of the people are not being taken in with amnesty. also Obama is blaming the republican congress for not doing anything about amnesty...well congress is not obligated to...the same way Obama is not obligated to pass a border security bill, even though that is part of his responsibility to protect our borders...not to pass amnesty. 3 branches of government that sometimes work together and sometimes they do not. what the president should have done 2 years ago was to sign a border security bill....and today there would probably be a senate and house agreement for some type of amnesty....instead we have open borders....thousands more illegals are coming through.....and chaos will be the results....lets hope the congress in jan only funds those agencies that need to be funded and amnesty funding is left out.

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
