Obama left White House only 10 days ago but is already speaking out against President Trump

He’s baaack!

An unspoken rule among U.S. presidents is that a president who had left the White House refrains from criticizing his successor.

The reason for that etiquette isn’t politeness, but rather the recognition that a new president needs breathing room to familiarize himself with the job, find his footing, and establish his policies and way of doing things without the distraction and detraction of what the former president thinks or says.

The etiquette also pertains to the relationship between a new president and the press, with the latter according the former a “honeymoon period”.

Neither tradition is being observed in the case of President Donald John Trump.

It’s been only 10 days since his presidency ended, but former president Barack Obama is already speaking out and mobilizing against President Trump.

Vox reports that today, January 30, 2017, Obama’s office released a statement  praising anti-Trump protesters and stating that Obama “fundamentally disagrees” with Trump’s executive order on immigration and refugees.

The full text, attributed to Obama’s spokesperson Kevin Lewis, reads:

President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country. In his final official speech as President, he spoke about the important role of citizens and how all Americans have a responsibility to be the guardians of our democracy — not just during an election but every day.

Citizens exercising their Constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake.

With regard to comparisons to President Obama’s foreign policy decisions, as we’ve heard before, the President fundamentally disagrees with the notion of discriminating against individuals because of their faith.

While praising “the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country” against President Trump, Obama makes no mention of, much less disavows or condemns, the many violent anti-Trump “engagements” and death threats, such as:

Nor is Obama condemning the verbal assaults and insults directed at President Trump’s wife and children:

  1. Barrack Hussein is uncivilized, he has never understood etiquette. He was never a Constitutional expert. In fact he was never a lawful president. He should be impeached for Treason.

    • He was never an American either. He and his ‘husband’ needs to be deported.
      Who’s paying him anyway, Soros?

      • Soros, and others. I remember how he bowed to Saudi King, he owns property in M.E. I’m thinking a percentage of the $1.8B HRC transferred to Qatar might be headed his way also. And unless he’s impeached and found guilty, we’ll be paying not only him but the extended family for a lifetime.

  2. So does this mean the BO is disagrees with BO?
    He just can’t help himself. We know he has no class, proven many times over.
    Most of the previous Presidents waited several months. He just can’t give up the limelight.
    And as for Gollywood, this is all about going against Trump and no more failure bailouts for them and the future money for performing arts.
    If anyone in this country actually think Gollywood actually gives a rat’s patootie about them or any potential refugee, they need to take a reality pill. Because the shallow and egotistical people in Gollywood have all taken in and placed so many of them, right? And they don’t live behind big fences and they all work at the shelters and food kitchens.

  3. So now the Obamamama has a new role to play: VIC, aka Villifier in Chief. Such a scum-sucking posture really does suit him to a T. As if the world –never mind the USA!!– hasn’t had enough of this communist Muslim creep sent out of the back rooms of Chicago’s ward system, which steadily cranks out ‘dark horses to order’ as per its shadow gubbmint’s needs.

  9. Well, we now see what we have always suspected . . . Barry is an A$$hole and he will act in that manner until such time as he either leaves the earth, or develops such severe dementia that he looses his mind. This is but the first of I am sure many, many outbursts we will have to endure from him. Perhaps, he should be investigated for something, anything just to shut him up. (I for one would like to have his real birth authenticated . . . . . . . )

    *i.e. protect the Liberals’ government JOBS.

    Citizens exercising their Constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials (violent protests,destruction of property) is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake. (The burning Police cars are just an added bonus.)
