Yes, I believe he is. He is still our President and some well chosen words from him could go far toward making this a peaceful transition.
His silence on this issue speaks volumes regarding his personal feelings about the protests. It seems he thinks this will be a great chapter in his Legacy and wants it to continue for a long time to come.
If he doesn't want to lead this country until inauguration day he should just go play golf and let Trump take over.
Obama & Hillary have both been gracious losers in 'saying stuff' to unite people. Trump needs to apologize & play nice. The other side was threatening us with GUNS if they lost. Do you suppose God might actually know what he's doing down here
You are giving Obama too much social power.... He is out of office in every way but physically... the only way for his regime to continue is if we were attacked... [at least I think he would still be in charge].
"Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power."
"I count my blessings every single day that I am an American, and I still believe, as deeply as I ever have, that if we stand together and work together with respect for our differences, strengthen our convictions, and love for this nation, our best days are still ahead of us.
Because, you know, I believe we are stronger together and we will go forward together. "
Where is she and Obama now that their party operatives are paying people to riot, people who don't even vote, and encouraging teenagers who can't even vote to reject the results of our legitimate and constitutional election?
Hypocrites all....or could it be Hillary is just too ill to comment?
ptosis, Yup, just like the alt right was wrong about hillary killary being sick, until --- wait for it, wait for it, SHE WAS ILL and the mass media had lied!!! Another amazing turn of events showing the mass media does not report the truth!!
Obummer isn't saying anything to quell the rioting, and he surely could. But wow, he's jumped in before when there was a situation involving a conflict between a white and a black man, or between a police officer and a black man; he should have let local law enforcement handle the situation. So at the least, in this case, Obummer is an accomplice by failure to speak.
This is a puzzle for me, and I would LOVE a decent, logical response that makes sense: Why do Trump supporters see him as being faultless in quelling the uproar that he created? All he has ever done is act like a bully and we should be okay with it?
misfit Trump didn't cause anyone to riot. The rioters are spoiled brats that didn't get their way, and they have taken to rioting. They are responsible for their actions, no one else. No wonder you rant the way you do. What an idiotic statement.
Trump is not our President yet. Obama is still the leader of this country and he should not just ignore this problem. He could at least try to discourage more protests. His absolute silence is pretty much telling them to just keep protesting.
You're CORRECT Mike, Trump is NOT President & he's LOSING the VOTE to Hillary by over 1 MILLION Ballots ~ The "Electoral COLLEGE" Votes 4 PREZ on Dec. 19 & Hopefully they will EXERCISE their RIGHTs to VOTE 4 the REAL Winner ~ PROTESTING is a
Remember the NRA is NOT supported by socialists. 20 + million guns in the U.S.. Millions of rounds of ammo. There's a reason for the second amendment. Something to consider if you plan on screwing around with those that voted. Have fun!
If Trump manages to make it past the "Electoral C" on DEC. 19, 2016 he has a LONG Way to GO to EXCEED Pres. Obama's Accomplishments of 5% Unemployment, ZERO Inflation, Stock Market HIGHs, RE Market Stabilized, Wages Up, SS & Medicare SOLID etc
AP - Just keep on believing those numbers if they make you feel good. Most of us know those numbers are badly distorted. I say give Trump a chance to show us what he can do. I hope we are quite surprised at the results.
Old-Poolman ~ There's NO Credible Info to Prove the Numbers are DISTORTED ~ Hxprof ~ If U "COUNT Every VOTE" as a "VOTE" Trump LOST ~ "Dire Circumstances ? Communist Influence, Conspiring with COMMUNISTs, Facism, Misogyny, Mental Disorders etc
AP, the dire, communist conspiracy is not getting into the white house - hillary killary lost. You've got a guy who's a businessman, that in and of itself negates any socialists ilk in his thinking. Though he did buy off hilary killary
Hi Norma ~ The most ACCURATE Reflection of Unemployment can be found at the "Dept of Labor" Website & right now, unemployment is around 5%, a HISTORICAL Low & that's a FACT ~ Any other OPINIONs, Guesses, SPIN etc is just that ~ NO Comment 4 J
Yeah, best place to find "truth" is from the U.S. Government HAHAHAHAHAHA Google "Actual Unemployment" and read some articles brought up. Like most propaganda issued by the U.S. Government, it's made to look good, not to show reality and truth.
AP The unemployment numbers are horribly distorted. They do not include those who gave up looking for work nor do they separate part-time from full time work. Thanks to Obamacare many are now limited to 30 or less hours per week.
John W ~ Sorry, but I happen to believe in FACTs not POLITICALLY Manipulated Phoney Numbers PEDDLED by Numbskulls like Sean Hammerhead etc ~ The "Dept of Labor" has an Abundace of INFO to supply "WE the PEOPLE" with the most Accurate Data ~
AP, "facts" as in obama being the record setter for denying Freedom of Information requests for the last 2 years. Yeah, he really wants American's to know the "truth". Reading what others have to say is a good way of getting to the "truth"
OldPoolman ~ I RELY on FACTs provided by my Gov. Agency the "Dept of Labor" which has more Individuals Analyzing more Raw Data than any other ENTITY ~ Their "FACT Based" Conclusion sets Unemployment at 5% ~ But U are FREE to Believe what U wish
John W ~ I'm not interested in a Conversation with a NUT-Case Republican who believes his Physical & Psychological INSECURITIEs can somehow be "CURED" by Gun Ownership ~ P.S. ~ "CLIMATE Change" will turn Montana Land into OCEAN-Front Property
Old-Poolman ~ If U are UNWILLING to Accept Factual Data, how will U be able to ACCURATELY Measure "Drumpy Trump's" Progress or Lack thereof, if he becomes OUR Next President on December 19, 2016 when the "ELECTORAL COLLEGE" Votes ?? GOD FORBID
There is no denying that Trump is unqualified, unbalanced & dangerous. Arguing that he is not in the face of the obvious is a way to HIDE the REAL reasons why anyone would vote for him. Sorry, 'Trump was best choice' is BEYOND debunked.
Absolutely Catherine ~ In the Debates, Hillary turned Donald into a BABBLING Idiot within 15 Minutes & NOW, he's ATTACKING Broadway Actors via TWITTER 4 CRITICIZING his Racist, ANTI-American Agenda ~ Wait til' TERRORISTs get ahold of his PSYCHE
AP, I love how you ignore the fact that obamamama allowed actual criminals to walk - the TBTF banks. And you're afraid of words? Someone says boo, do you run and hide? Why not go after the money laundering at the Clinton Foundation?
JW ~ ALL Presidents "PARDON" ~ U should be THANKING Pres. Obama 4 SAVING this Country from George W Bush's Catastrophic Tenure ~ NO, unlike INSECURE Weak CONservatives who run & "GRAB" a gun before HIDING when someone says BOO, I don't need a GUN
Obamama saving this country? HAHAHHAHAAHHAAHAHAHAHAHA What a card you are AP. obammama is the worst president ever. Don't think hillary killary could of topped the cesspool he created. But, I think she would have tried!! You're such a card HAHAHA
Know what's funny? You actually believe that most people voted for Trump for the same reasons you & your ilk did: to destroy and then save America for White Nationals. Have U ever thrown a pop can away instead of recycling it in front of a lib? L
He has free speech & free press hurdles to get past. We'll see. I'm not sure stifling the press is such a good idea with him in that office. I advise people to verify wild-sounding stories. Don't believe harsh stuff just bcuz U hate the person.
misfit, You believe wild stuff because you hate the person, aren't we all entitled to do that? Your socialist friends in Europe are calling you can sing kumbyeha with your muslim friend, pray to he/she/it to your hearts content! Go now!!
Sychophantastic ~ Please keep NAZI Propaganda GARBAGE like the "Daily Stormer" away from this THREAD ~ We believe in REALITY, not MORONIC Hate Filled "FANTASY World" TRASH ~ If the "Electoral C" Votes 4 Trump, IMPEACHMENT will be imminent ~
Yeah, we only believe the lies like, "You can keep your doctor" You can keep your Healthcare Plan. We're going after the bankers but none go to jail Fast and furious selling guns to drug cartels, That sort of thing. Only lies that fit the agenda!
Believe whatever NONSENSE you'd like JOHN but here's the REALITY ~ I've kept my HEALTHCARE Plan & if I do Convert to OBAMACARE I can also keep my DOCTOR ~ BANKERs? ~ If Elected Pres., what do U think Trump would do 4 BANKERs ? He'll ENRICH them
Wikileaks shared Podesta's emails with the Democratic Party saying let's organize violence at Trump events to make Trump supporters look violent, and Project Veritas managed to get video of Democrat leaders saying yes, we hire people to instigate violence at conservative events to blame on conservatives. Now the election as passed. They lost. And there are Craigslist ads for $15-20 an hour and $1500/week to "protest Trump". There are videos of buses coming in to drop off protestors. These are organized riots to make Trump look bad. And you know Clinton and Obama support it because they haven't said "stop it".
Sycho, You R not in charge of anything. The govt. is in charge of you no matter who is in office. You will continue to pay your taxes and do as you are told. By the time they "Make America Great Again" on the 12th of Never, you'll be in heaven.
Deleting comments is the equivalent of admitting you're wrong& don't want others to know. Its pretty obvious that Trump's supporters R acting like him in here; and ganging up to 'like/dislike' their questions to bring them to the top. Wah, wah -
It plays right into the demoncraps hands. The little snowflakes, being the obedient little puppets they are (and paid by the demoncraps) certainly are being encouraged by obmama and hillary killary. Watch hillary killary start siphoning off money from the money laundering Clinton Foundation to start a new movement with the color purple as it's choice. "Against" the supposed hate of the quiet and peaceful voters who put Trump in office. The left certainly hasn't shown any "love trumps hate" since Americans elected Trump. The demonstrators are a spiteful, hateful and bigoted group of people. It wouldn't surprise me if they started burning books at their next demonstration. Got to wipe out everything that shows their ideology to be wrong. As bad as McCarthyism in the 50's. Lest we forget obamama and hillary killary have most of the media behind them, spewing out the ideology over the airwaves. Google and twitter censoring those that oppose the lefts agenda. I'm sure many dictators are joyously singing their praises to the demagogues in America that go be names obama and hillary killary. Marxists like obama and hillary killary love demonstrators like we have in the streets today.
You forget about fake news and how vulnerable you are to it. Fake-news writer: I think Donald Trump is in the White House bcuz of me. ADMITS to creating that 'paid protestor' FAKE news & MORE: http://tinyurl.com/FakeNewsConfession
Misfit, CNN, ABC, FOX, New York Times are all fake news. Can't help it if the propaganda by the U.S. Government and socialists work so well on you. When obama denies a record number of FOIA requests, you know the truth is hidden. .
Misfit Chick telling republicans to grow up? LOL! I don't think any conservatives were crying for safe spaces and requesting therapy dogs when Obama won in 2008.the "everyone gets a trophy" crowd has just been taught a lesson. Suck it up snowflakes
Wow, even with the election over and Clinton is anon-issue, people are still rabid about how terrible Obama is .blah blah blah. Get over it people. Look to the future, quit wallowing in the past. Never going to get anything done with a B&M session such as this Q.
"I'm not in the dark anymore since I started reading The Daily Stormer." This is a very alt-right 'white nationalists' site that has a graphic at the top of the front page: Operation No Survivors. And Trump's haters WONDER what our problem is.
Get used to it, misfit. You cannot force me to be something that I do not want to be - the beauty of freedom. You want to be enslaved, go to Europe, China. Myself, I like the founders view of individual freedom. Hence, we get Trump, not hillary
Serious question to white liberals who voted for Obama & Trump even though unlikely that you'll respond: were you REALLY intending to get into bed with people like Old Guard, Taze & Sychophantastic? Were you THAT ignorant about Christian mili
I stand corrected, LoL! You should be afraid, be VERY afraid of people like me who call your conspiracy theories out as BS. Really? David ICKE's site is listed as a 'source'; and you're SURE Trump isn't a reptilian getting ready to EAT us all?!
Good points. I'm really not so sure that its mainly college kids, most adults are working and probably are not taking off. I think we'll really see who & how we are divided on Inaguration Day. Big protests are being planned. We'll see who comes.
To be sure, there IS NOW planning for protests - but, no one needs to hire them, LoL! "I think Donald Trump is in the White House bcuz of me". ADMITS to creating that 'paid protestor' FAKE news & MORE: http://tinyurl.com/FakeNewsConfession
misfit, Protest away. It ain't the left that support the NRA. it ain't the left that's got millions of guns and rounds of ammo. There's a reason for the second amendment - to stop people from usurping power. obamama came close.
promisem Alt news as been around forever. Same as the propaganda from the U.S. Government. You folks are scared of words, but let criminals walk freely around thanks to your government. You ought to get your priorities straight
Thanks for the continuing war rattling. I happen to be a crazy lady with a couple of firearms in the house. Then again, I USED to be a fanatical Christian militant like you; and am WELL-AWARE of how dangerous you are. Its why I voted Hillary.
Tell your new Commander in Chief to clean up his own mess. You can't expect people to welcome him with semi-open arms with all the hate-mongering he has done. An apology from his rabid supporters who helped ramp UP the hate might help, also.
Obama has done more 'uniting' than should have been expected under the circumstances; while Trump continues to do nothing but shoot his mouth off in offensive ways. Unless he can manage to get a handle on that one big/little thing, don't expect him to last long.
Republicans have been trying to convince citizens for years that government is bad bcuz of Dems (liberals, leftists, elitists); WHILE forgetting that THEY are the power-hungry, rich white men we were intentionally-replacing with Obama.
For 8 years, GOP refused to work across partisan divides as people got angrier; WHILE blaming Obama and the majority of We the People who voted for him – both in the electorial college & popular vote. GOP have CLEARLY demonstrated that THEY don’t have to respect the vote of the PEOPLE nor our President – so WHY should we now?!
Nasty women were calling Trump and his supporters racist & misogynistic LONG before the election for obvious hate-rhetoric reasons. Protests are here to stay until Trump has something ELSE to say to us beyond the SAME hate speech he used to get into that office.
MORE than that, many men have had misogynistic attitudes toward Hillary for DECADES: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrcQeFl76cg Even though, most women were able to separate her from Bill’s scandals; and could see that the ones she DID seem to participate in weren’t NEARLY as ugly or incriminating as any other male politician before her. Really. HOW is her email scandal or any other one so much WORSE than any other male political candidate’s INCLUDING Trump’s?!!
Hillary has had to fight in a male-dominated culture WHILE 'being a lady' – and obviously failed miserably up against Trump, a ‘good ‘ol locker room pal’ with a hot-headed, cocaine-mentality with practically NO experience in politics aside from knocking elbows with the rich & famous. Plus, he obviously knows how to use his big businesses to both rip people off & evade heavy taxes.
Our divisions are profitable as any war; and are very possibly perpetuated intentionally. It is always the SAME government - just varying shades of who cares about people who live here. The chasm that exists between us is a lot simpler than most people realize. Christians & ex-Christians have proven God exists by debunking salvation. Look it up.
obama's been one of the most bigoted presidents that I can ever remember. And on top of that, he hates america. A disgusting person that should never have been in the W.H. At least sense prevailed and we kept hillary killary out!!
Read the first 3 paragraphs and the rest of this post; then TRY REALLY HARD to remember, OG. I think Donald Trump is in the White House bcuz of me. ADMITS to creating that 'paid protestor' FAKE news & MORE: http://tinyurl.com/FakeNewsConfession
obama and hillary killary are the two most bigoted people that I know of. Both have divided and tried to push an agenda that's so un-American it's pathetic. If the likes of misfit support it, it's got to be terrible!
Yup, amazing how things have been tainted then twisted into your mind, OG. I honestly wonder if you even know the definition of the words you speak. Lookup: bigot, divisive behavior & un-American. You might be surprised at what they actually mean
The Daily Stormer outlines everything Old Guard is saying. The Children of the Sun need to band together. These riots are trying to undo the will of the voters. People like Richard Spencer are showing us the true path. www.dailystormer.com
‘Let’s go, Democrats. I’ll kill you all.’ That's been Trump's supporters threat to us since BEFORE the election. We have guns, too; and we're SO DAMN TIRED of being LIED ABOUT by GOP. We're your NEIGHBORS not your enemies. Grow up!
Like I said, The Daily Stormer is the New Bible. Choosing to allow your brain to become so wrapped up in one-sided, inflated semi-truths & lies leaves you seriously vulnerable & skiddish. No wonder people like you are so full of fear. Balance
Misfit, yup - terrible that Trumps the next president. Going to have to fend for yourself, maybe. Why not go to Europe as a political refugee. You'll get your free food stamps, free housing, just like hillary killary promised you. Ya leaving?
I'm sure God is very proud of his many misplaced soldiers who have diligently remained steadfast at the watch & at the ready for this moment. SHOWERS of BLESSINGS will be your's. *I* have a higher standard than your spiteful God who RAINS HATE
I don't want nor need free stuff, you jerk. Just keep talking trash, you're only making things worse - then again, that's what you want, isn't it? *I* don't leave when things get tough like some people (you!) do. I will stay & continue to fight.
misfit, yeah, in Europe you'll get your free abortions, be able to hang with your muslim buddies, get that socialist movement in your veins. Get all the free stuff from people who actually work for a living. Political asylum, right up your alley!

Well Sharon, Trump is LOSING the VOTE by about 2 MILLION ~ Most are "RESERVING Opinions" until ALL Votes are COUNTED, The Electoral COLLEGE Votes & ALL RECOUNTs to INVESTIGATE Communist Infiltration are Concluded ~
Are you an actual person or an internet troll? Seriously...this is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Look at Obama's record as president and his well-documented temperament throughout not only his life, but his tenure. Now compare that to Trump's. If you actually believe this stuff then you're not paying attention. The fact that you're perpetuating it is criminal and hub pages is no place for this crap.
Hub pages is no place for name calling people who call anyone who asks a question they can't answer or disagrees with them, a troll. And then wants them censored from the forum...You should be the one to leave.
I thought my question was a good one. You here so many things about situations and I just wanted to know what people on Hub Pages thought. I can tell by your insults you are in the dark about what is going on around you. Thanks for you comment.
Jaynie, Most great tyrants and "leaders" have self control. In order to get his "policies" enacted, he did remain cool and calm. Something to ponder - are we better off after 8 years or worse? Is the country more "together" or divided?
Its the way you asked the question that implies Obama is splitting the country apart by not doing what Trump should be doing: APOLOGIZE to ALL the people he has offended and 'make nice'. Kind of hard to do when you're out of touch with non-racists.
If Trump does become President which is an OPEN Question until December 19, 2016 ~ When Terrorists or Sinister WORLD Dictators begin to Torture him Psychologically from afar, even those who BLINDLY VOTED 4 him will PRAY 4 Pres. Obama's Return

Obamacare is not something to be afraid of; and WHAT has Obama ever done to you that any shady President B4 him hasn't done & worse? This is the most scandalous thing you can come up with about him - oh, and he's GAY & his wife is a TRANNY! G
Misfit, What's your point? What are you trying to prove? obama's a bigot and one of the worst presidents ever. U have two eyes but can't see. You think you'll share something that will make me change my mind? Don't waste your time.
You can say whatever you want until you're blue in the face, OG - doesn't make U right. There are MANY people in this country who insist Obama will be 1 of the top 10 Presidents simply for bailing us out of the Bush regime's many lies & failures.
notnym, More than happy to deal with the unknowns> I travel full time, every days is "unknown" What I dislike about the left is that their way is forced upon those of us that see the flaws. Freedom is scary, socialism is safe. I'll take scary.
How does 'the left' FORCE 'their way' onto people like you who can only see life through FEAR? Democracy is a slow-developing, constant process - unless you erroneously view it as something that completely resets every 4 years, which, it doesn't.
Yes, Trump obviously emboldened white nationalism. If you're a white racist bigot, you can see that as not ONLY being 'okay', but NORMAL again, now. The saddest part is, you jerks are PROUD of that fact. The Inaguration is coming; and so is winter.
Typical loony liberal, can't handle the facts (like America has seen through liberalism and reject it because it has failed everywhere it has been tried) so all you have left is to resort to name calling, childish.
Is it my imagination, or are Trump supporters starting to sound like him? "I got words to say, I got a lot of words: You're dumb!" If you can't come up with a constructive retort to a response that is over your head - resort to his lame defense.
Catherine ~ May I ask you: What color is racist? What political party do you need to support to be a racist? If I don't believe in climate change am I a racist? If I don't support free healthcare am I a racist? What if I am against abortion?
"The majority of Americans were opposed to Trump"A LIE.Majority of Americans were opposed to HRC.Over half the electorate didn't vote so where so you put them?Absentee votes not counted yet and won't be https://youtu.be/XWvcSH346sw?t=58
That's NOT a lie, Taze 1) popular vote NOT won by Trump; 2) read my answer on misogyny & racism that details WHY Trump won 3) FAKE NEWS you can't discern. 4) THREATS against non-Trumpsters: ‘Let’s go, Democrats. I’ll kill you all.' CHILL, you WON
You don;t even know what the significance of the pop vote is, it isn't finalized, absentees aren't in many won't be counted,3 million illegals voted and no one ran to win the total popular vote - it's meaningless and SO ARE YOU.
Jo, You want to stifle free speech, is that the goal like obamama tried to do? If you don't like it, protest. But, the votes been taken, and 36 states chose Trump. I'm more concerned with the criminal activity of the DNC than Trumps words.
*I* understand the significance of the pop vote. In this case, it means that our country is SERIOUSLY DIVIDED - as opposed to united as you seem to think it means. That isn't meaningless, its an idicator for The Donald who he has NOT been talking to.
Misfit, why waste your time protesting words, when obamama let the criminal's a the banks get off scot free? Or the money laundering scheme Clinton Foundation? Words are used to sway people , like you have been with the propaganda fro the DNC.
I'm of the opinion that Trump's much better than hillary killary. That's enough right now. I'll let him show what he can do. I put up with 8 years of lies from obamamama - I can give Trump 6 months. So, why aren't you protesting over the TBTF banks?
Believe it, there are some things I'm not that happy about - which is the reason why I am an Independent as opposed to Dem. That doesn't mean I'm stupid enough to hand my beloved country over to a dangerous, inexperienced, misogynistic racist.
It would be a wonderful thing if he would openly, convincingly, and unequivocally call for, even demand, an end to the rioting. Considering the office he holds and the sway over so many he enjoys, he had a responsibility to do that immediately. It seems that by not doing so he was the silent majority giving approval.
Obama & Hillary BOTH did that; and its getting really irritating that Trump's fans refuse to acknowledge that. Voters simply are not listening to them bcuz we have DAMN GOOD reasons to keep the pressure on. Expect it to continue for four solid ye
misfit, Why not protest about obamama letting all the bankers off after committing fraud, basically stealing trillions from Americas? There's specific criminal activity, not just words. Why not get upset over that? Or the DNC collusion?
You mean the bankers who committed fraud bcuz they refused to regulate themselves during the Bush regime that caused so much economic commotion? Why do you believe GOP lies about us; and support their hate-mongering ideals?
misfit, Your buddy bill clinton rescinded the law that allowed them to do that. Your buddy, obammaama hired the bank lobbyist Holder, to work out deals with his buds at the banks, to let the off scot free. All on the democrats on that one babe.
You must have missed this: ADMITS to creating that 'paid protestor' FAKE news & MORE: http://tinyurl.com/FakeNewsConfession No need to pay anyone, we're as MAD as Trump supporters threatening us with GUNS if they lost. THAT should be investigated
The snowflakes at Edgewood College in Wisconsin are now triggered, micro-aggressed, and presumably in terror due to a post-it note containing "hate speech" ("Suck it up, pussies"). There MAY be a danger that Trump supporters will die laughing.
Protests wah - free speech is only 4 us wah wah - election is rigged to Hillary wah - Russia no big deal wah - no reason to recount we WON squirm. If Trump was smart joining in the recount would have inspired unity since he supposedly has no worries.
Most people R just afraid bcuz they've been so jerked around & lied to from many directions - they don't know who/what to believe, anymore. If you are really afraid, read my 1st spotlight hub. We all have a LOT more power than we realize. No fear
Because he'd be facing a HUGE backlash from us brazen protestors about not allowing our rights to free speech and the right to protest about Hillary receiving over 2 million of the popular vote; and Trump & GOP seeing that as a GO sign to ignore
Of course Obama is encouraging people to riot. By not doing anything to stop the rioting, he's encouraging it. By not saying anything, he's quietly sending the message that it's okay. As President, he's been responsible for all kinds of things he hasn't explicitly opposed. It's his way of giving tacit approval. It's all outlined on the Daily Stormer (www.dailystormer.com). First in facts and integrity!
Like it or not, Trump HAS to speak to the American people who didn't vote for him and 'make nice'. He hasn't done that, and seems to think that he doesn't owe any of us an apology. He's done nothing but perpetuate it. Why should Obama bail him out?
No. The incoming administration is encouraging protest by appointing extremists to key positions--I'm speaking of the likes of Jeff Sessions and Steve Bannon. Donald Trump promised to be a uniter, but he is already betraying that promise.
I honestly thought for a bit that Trump was intentionally trying to implode the GOP b4 he won; and now it really does seem like he's completely focused on finding every way he can to make people angrier. Heck, some of his voters are starting to blink
Not directly, although it probably pleases him. I think George Soros is paying people to incite the disenfranchised and ignorant to do so, however, just as he did Occupy Wall Street and the Ferguson riots.
No, I do not sense that, President Obama is encouraging nor causing people to riot, however, i do sense that people are encouraging and causing other gullible people to riot. Knowledge is power, this I do believe! and hate has been continously taught, among our very diverse societies, whereby, it continoues to encourage and cause people to riot. I can assure you, that we do not have to go Iraq for war, when war is being created among us as people, indeed, this is hurtful to my heart, because so many children, are being hurt, based on this simple truth.
"people are encouraging and causing other gullible people to riot" I would semi-agree. All of us are overly-angry for lots of reasons that have been hyped; and people are looking for any & every excuse to vent. I really wish the shootings would s
Nope. Trump made his bed; and those of you who expect Obama to fix it for him are not taking responsiblity for your own part in helping Trump make our divided country as divided as possible. Then, after we implode - you can blame Obama AGAIN. Cool!!
You certainly do. GOP should have disqualified Trump as a candidate when he started spewing hate long before the election instead of letting this country be bombarded by it. In the end, they are probably the most irresponsible ones among us.
You leftys forget that it is a good idea to find some evidence to back up your claim before you make it. Not everyone believes everything that is spoon fed to them like you gullible leftists. Obama does not support Law enforcement, period.
I just did a simple search for Obama + police violence. He addressed Iowa police death Nov 2nd & there are more down thru the years. Not sure if he covered every one. Us silly 'leftys' care about all races, police, soldiers, children, kittens, e
Alright this is what my search turned up; "President Obama gives voice to police brutality victims", President Barack Obama said early Friday that Americans should feel outraged at episodes of police brutality since ... Must I go on?
When you don't want to find anything, you won't. Obama has dealt with a whole lot of crap for this country; and no matter how he handles it, he gets it from both sides - damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. He's leaving. You can relax, now.
Obama probably has little to do with it. It appears that Soros and perhaps others are paying people to riot or incite riots. There have been many screen captures of Craiglist ads offering to pay demonstrators, both now and during the election. There are organizations engaged in inciting riots, and they are well organized and well funded, even though this kind of activity is illegal.
There is ABSOLUTELY Zero Evidence that Soros is "Financing Incitement", however there is "AMPLE Prima Facie" EVIDENCE which Depicts Trump Inciting Violence / RIOTs & Conspiring with COMMUNISTs AGAINST the USA etc ~ Check your FACTs ~
Facts R not something Trump supporters care about. http://tinyurl.com/FakeNewsConfession We have as MUCH to be angry about as Trump supporters; and EVERY RIGHT to protest. U should be GRATEFUL for us peace-loving, non-reliant on gun-threat liberals.
I guess you didn't hear about the collapse of the USSR about 25 years ago, and were unaware that Russia has not been a communist country since that time. Try to keep up. You are a quarter-century behind the times. Trump supporters rioting, you say?
Sharon ~ If an UNSTABLE Individual like Trump does become President & This country "COLLAPSEs" will that mean Republicans will cease to be Republicans ? PASSIVE Attitudes toward Vladimir Putin, Communism & Trump's Involvement is Stunning
Russia hasn't been a Communist country for 25 years. Putin has worked hard to restore religion and traditional culture, and to remove asset-stripping oligarchs and give Rothschild the boot. This is the globalists' actual beef with Russia.
Our divisions R profitable & verypossibly hyped intentionally. Its always the SAME government - just varying shades of who cares about people who live here. If you think you've escaped something by electing Trump, no. From the heart the mouth spe
I agree. These divisions are not REAL. I have a particular fondness for gays, and I've met many blacks I respect and admire. Immigrants too. But the media tries to incite me to hate them, just as it incites you to view Trump supporters as bigots.
Trump did that, himself - remember all his hateful rhetoric that EXCITED so many white men & Nazi Nationalists? You brush them off, others take them seriously while Trump continues to do nothing to unite us. Throwing fits only excites his support
I guess we'll have to outlaw "boy talk" in locker rooms the public use of the word "fat." But I suppose there are some who have never heard or engaged in naughty conversations or used the F word (fat). I think such people are probably certifiable.
You're missing the misogyny points. Scroll down to read my answer to this question - or not. Its a little too hot to handle for some, LoL! Usually, women who easily brush Trump's dispostition off live with men who taught them its 'no big deal'. Sad.
IF there is a global conspiracy, U are on the side of Jews. By Trump's words & actions since the election, he's not the answer. Conspiracy theories R WAY more fun than racism & misogyny - but, it isn't working. Hate is RAMPANT bcuz of Trump's
Well at least Obama is consistent. When black lives matter was rioting over deaths of blacks via police he did nothing to denounce riots in Fergison MO or in North Carolina. He had reversed about 50 years of racial progress. We still had a way to go but before Obama, things were looking better for black/ right relations. Because of his elitist and race bating actions, we are even more divided as a country. I thought things were going wrong with George W Bush but they are far worse now.
Very true. Blacks had a better quality of life in 1955 than they have now. Black kids got a good education, the unemployment rate was low, black families were relatively stable, and black neighborhoods were not violent and drug-and-gang infested.
Uh huh. BLM is a pet conspiracy theory among Trump supporters; and now they're going to embrace it? Actually, hypocracy would be consistent for them. I'm guessing this is a trolling comment made to keep things twisted & confused as Trumpsters are
Well, in my opinion, while i don't think obama is encouraging the people to riot on purpose, i think that he is encouraging them with out meaning to, and besides the point even if obama told them to stop rioting the people would not listen to him and would most likely riot more violently than they have been because of the fact that both trump and the Vice president have hate towards the LGBT community, african americans, immigrants, women, and many other minority groups in america that know that if they don't fight now they might never be able to fight again or in some cases might be deported or killed. i know you might think its obama's fault that there are massive riots going on right now but its not, its trumps. because of trump all of the minorities feel scared that maybe the next day they wake up they will be deported, be arrested, or in worst case scenario be killed. they feel this way because off all the ignorant things trump said during his campaign for president about minority groups that has put this fear in to the minorities and has caused them to riot and fight for them to be apart of this country, to have a say in what they can and cant do, and to stop trum from making relations between the united states of america and other countries that we ether have good relations or awful relations, that if they get any worse they might start a war, to get worse and to keep relations between are nations good.
No one has any reason for fear if they are here legally, or unless they worry that their plans for a late-term abortion may be foiled. I am not sure what the gay community fears. Blacks will likely find they will enjoy employment opportunities.
By the way, that you SO MUCH Norma for DELETING my very valid comments. We know where you stand on your own question; and how Trump's cronies can't handle logic. FREE SPEECH only reigns when you're right - and when you're not, WOOPS - get rid of it!!
sharon, you have a good point, except that a lot of immigrants have been deported just because they could not find their paper, because they could not get to the court, or just because the judge did not want to spend time on there case.
and about the late-term abortion, even though i think that it's awful, you have to remember that most late-term abortions happen because the baby is dead, the baby will be in huge pain, or because the mothers life is at risk.
"There is talk..." Wow, this is incredibly stupid. Btw, y'all burned Obama in effigy when he won. In fact, you bunch of racists voted the chief white supremacist birther as president in response to a seeing black guy in the White House #gtfohwtbs
You got one thing right, Obama (and his policies) are what gave America Trump, you should be blaming him, the race baiting president who has done nothing at all for his "race" whose stats under him are the worst in recent history.
Obama has often been accused by his angry supporters of acting more GOP than Dem (as an insult). He did a good job of walking a fine line. Its not like he was going to get much leway since he was a black man. P's & Q's were minded like a good boy
Obama doubled down on Bush's policies: More war, more bankster bailouts, more trade policies to crush the middle class. People dislike him because--apart from being an embarrassment on the international scene--he's a tool.
They're all tools, especially Trump. He told lies to sway suspicions - like, the election is rigged. He said as many hateful things as he could to make sure divides went as deep as possible. Again, thru the heart the mouth speaks. He's no savior.
Sharon ~ Some FACTs ~ Pres. OBAMA has one the HIGHEST Approval Ratings in HISTORY, People like him ~ Obama REDUCED Troops in MIDDLE East & if BANKs Remain HUGE they must be "BAILED Out" Period & Corporate GREED Causes JOB Loss not TRADE Deals
Blame Obama for whatever you need to while watching a divided country rail against Trump's divisive disposition. He made only hollow efforts toward unifying us & has made things worse via immature Twitter rants. Plus, Kellyanne's mouth isn't help
Does anyone here ask themselves if President Obama is trying to use code to get messages to those who “go high, when they go low”?
Let’s look at what Americans divided would be, if President Obama came out and chastised under no uncertain terms, repudiated Mr. Trump?
I personally noticed a very tired and disappointed President Obama announce in a press conference the afternoon on Nov 9 that his pledge is to help the potential president elect, with assistance in a smooth transition.
Mr. Obama has stated “the majority” has responded.
It appears that until there is a time with hard evidence in hand and no speculation or theories. His hands are tied.
The President campaign his heart out for the democratic nominee, made these statements,
“If you can bait someone with a tweet, do you want them to have the launch codes”.
“Mr. Trump is the most unqualified candidate in all of American history and lacks the temperament.”
President Obama can only encourage for so long until the weight of all the hate becomes more than even he can carry.
Well, looks like "TRUMPETEERs" might be RIOTING Soon if the Presidency goes to the Rightful WINNER Hillary ~ She's LEADING the VOTE by about 2.5 MILLION & SWINDLER Trump is a bit FRIGHTENED by the RECOUNTs which will UNCOVER the TRUTH
It really is weird how Trump is so freaked out about it. It was started as a simple formality to help quell the protestors. If he would have joined in the recount as an action of good faith (since he had nothing to worry about) - respect. But, no...
Trump can't join the RECOUNTs, he knows what's about to be UNCOVERED ~ The National POLLs were RIGHT on TARGET Giving Hillary a SUBSTANTIAL Lead ~ If NOT "HACKED" in "COMRADE Trump's" Favor by Communists, WHY the DISPARITY in State Results ??
Of course he is. He and Hillary and Soros. They had their evil plans all set and the American people knew it, well the ones who have their eyes open and with any common sense and stepped up to stop it and thank God we did! Now after Hillary claiming it was a crime not to accept the results is fighting it still because her butt and Obama's could be in serious trouble with her not being the president. The treason they have been up to cannot just be swept under the rug as easily if Hillary is not in office for 8 years, although anyone can tell by looking at her she probably would not last that long but as long as the Dems got control same difference. He has had every chance to stop this rioting and should be responsible to make it but of course his silence is just like it is on the BLMs that keeps police officers in jeopardy when words from him could bring peace, peace is not what he wants. He is the worst president and trouble maker this country has ever known and I would say good riddance if I thought for a minute his ill will to be over after he is out of office, But I do not. He wants America as we knew it destroyed and he will never rest until he has done all he can to undermine any good efforts anyone else may try! https://youtu.be/deeBXWScl-4
Trump lied to sway votes: the election is rigged. Hypocrit on the recount. He said as many hateful things he could to make divides as deep as possible. Obama can't fix Trump's mess, he's tried & not been given credit. Trump hasn't tried at all.
misfit, Why is it you see so much of Trumps faults, but you don't see obamamama's nor hillary killary's. Trump didn't incite violence like the DNC did at Trump rallies. Nor did he smear Bernie Sanders like hillary killary. What's up?
Re-read what I've written throughout this question if you need reminders. Trump could have semi-united us by joining in the recount (since he has nothing to worry about) instead of throwing a tantrum. I think I dislike KA worse, ha! She helps not.
misfit, Doesn't answer the question of why you support corruption in the DNC, hillary killary's lies and obamamama's war mongering. hillary killary is unamerican (her words) if she can't accept the vote. That's what she told Trump What changed?
What changed was that some 'computer scientists' put it in protestors heads that 'something is wrong'. We know things are fine (except Trumps hypocritical reaction has raised more suspicions). Want protestors to go home? Eliminate their questions.
I think protestors ought to be made to stay in the streets. In fact, put barb wire around them, and make sure that they stay there . Wind, rain, snow, they are exactly where they need to be. Don't let 'em leave. That sound good, misfit?
Obama really does not have the clout. I realize Trump supporters have always been taught that all 'elitists' worship BO; but he's done too good of a job walking down the middle of the road trying to please all. Too many on both sides R mad at him.
Yeah, goes to a dictator and mass murderer's funeral, ignores cops killed in the line of duty. Those that support Trump see the hypocrisy of his ilk. He's always been on the side of dictators and communists. He's walked that line very well.
Sounds kind of racist to me , It just reminds me though that racism plays a huge part FROM the positions minorities too . 90 percent of Black voters voted for Obama , proving racism exists in the black community , now he says this , I...
