Krauthammer completely Krauthammered Obama in an interview with Bret Baier. He perfectly explained why all of Obama’s recent actions have been a way to get revenge on Trump and delegitimize him. He first explained how Obama has been acting completely inconsistently.
He pointed out that although Obama is making a huge deal about Russia, he did nothing during the “Chinese hack of OPM where they took millions and millions of identification numbers, Social Security numbers of government employees.” However he also pointed out that Obama’s hypocrisy “doesn’t mean that the Russians weren’t behind it and that the U.S. ought to make a strong response.”
“This is a president who has appeased the Russians from day one. He cancels the missile defense system as he comes into office, Obama did. He then lies down, does nothing about Syria, essentially nothing about Ukraine. Does nothing about all the trespasses of the Russians vis-a-vis the U.S. They learned about the hacking 18 months before today. They do nothing at a time when it would actually have an effect,” said Krauthammer.
“[A]ll of a sudden with a month to go, he decides to do this. The timing and the severity of what he did is clearly — this is Obama’s revenge on Trump for the birther thing. Trump, he perceives, Obama perceives, tried to undermine his legitimacy,” explained Krauthammer referring to Obama’s Russia sanctions.
“That’s what all of this is about and that’s why I think that Trump is right in protesting this,” summarized Krauthammer. Check out the interview below.
