Nearing the end of his reign as self-appointed (unclothed) emperor, and disappointed with his party’s criminal and failed 2016 candidate, Obama claims Hillary was not “treated fairly” by the MSM. I think we can all agree on that…
‘I think she’s worked tirelessly on behalf of the American people and I don’t think she was treated fairly during the election,’ Obama said as he avoided critiquing Russia outright.
‘I think the coverage of her – and the issues – was troubling,’ he added.
Obama also criticized the media for its ‘obsession’ with the hacked emails from both the Democratic National Committee and senior aide John Podesta.
‘I’m finding it a little curious that suddenly everyone’s acting surprised that this looked like it was disadvantaging Hillary Clinton, because you guys wrote about it every single day,’ Obama told the room full of reporters.
‘Every single week. About every little juicy tidbit of political gossip, including John Podesta’s risotto recipe.’
‘This was an obsession that dominated the news coverage.’
Obama’s comments echoed what he said during an earlier interview with NPR as he discussed the Russian hack.
Although the president refused to say if he agreed the hack’s motivation was to help Trump, he said the intended result of the leak of emails was clear.
‘What the Russian hack had done was create more problems for the Clinton campaign than it had for the Trump campaign,’ he said.
‘There’s no doubt that it contributed to an atmosphere in which the only focus for weeks at a time, months at a time, were Hillary’s emails, the Clinton foundation, political gossip surrounding the DNC.’
Actually, I believe there are watchdogs on the MSM, such as NewsBusters.org, who noted the (minute tally) LACK of concern or coverage of the WikiLeaks by said MSM, so, Bam is blowing smoke out his ass again.
MEANWHILE… Hillary’s “historic” 2016 POTUS run continues with, well, historic proportions. Yesterday she broke a 104 year old ‘glass ceiling’ with the EC:
