  • Obama Seemed To Know EXACTLY What Would Happen To Trump In Post-Election Presser (TWEET)


    As if a fortune teller of what was to come, former President Obama so clearly seemed to predict the future during a press conference that was held six days after the 2016 election.

    Here’s a portion of the presser that makes it seems as if Obama knew exactly what was to come with Donald Trump in the coming months:

    “One of the things you discover about being President is that there are all these rules and norms and laws and you’ve got to pay attention to them. And the people who work for you are also subject to those rules and norms. And that’s a piece of advice that I gave to the incoming President.

    I am very proud of the fact that we will—knock on wood—leave this administration without significant scandal. We’ve made mistakes, there have been screw-ups, but I will put the ethics of this administration and our track record in terms of just abiding by the rules and norms and keeping trust with the American people—I will put this administration against any administration in history.

    And the reason is because, frankly, we listened to the lawyers. And we had a strong White House Counsel’s Office. We had a strong Ethics Office. We had people in every agency whose job it was to remind people, this is how you’re supposed to do things. It doesn’t mean everybody always did everything exactly the way it’s supposed to, because we’ve got 2 million people working in the Federal Government, if you’re including the military, and so we had to just try to institutionalize this as much as we could. And that takes a lot of work. And one of my suggestions to the incoming President is, is that he take that part of the job seriously as well.”

    And now look — Trump is officially reportedly under investigation for obstruction of justice because he didn’t know how to follow the rules.

    Can’t say Obama didn’t warn him.
