Obama has long been known as the “divider in chief” as he is always spewing divisive rhetoric and his agenda. This will be his lasting legacy.
Following recent violent protests against Donald Trump, Obama has finally addressed the situation. He said the protesters should “not be silent.”
According to Politico, President Barack Obama has little sympathy for President-elect Donald Trump when it comes to the protests against him, and he offered up some advice for his successor: Get used to it.
“I’ve been the subject of protests during the course of my eight years,” Obama said at a joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday. “And I suspect that there’s not a president in our history that hasn’t been subject to these protests. So, I would not advise people who feel strongly or who are concerned about some of the issues that have been raised during the course of the campaign, I wouldn’t advise them to be silent.”
Unreal, isn’t it? However, it’s not the first time Obama has stirred the pot when it comes to anything-but-peaceful protests. Check out this little gem during the Ferguson race riots.

According to the Rev. Al Sharpton, who has appeared frequently in St. Louis with the Brown family and delivered a speech at Mr. Brown’s funeral, Mr. Obama “was concerned about Ferguson staying on course in terms of pursuing what it was that he knew we were advocating. He said he hopes that we’re doing all we can to keep peace.”
He is supporting the destruction of property and people’s livelihoods.
