President Obama had some advice for the anti- Trump protesters at a recent press conference in Germany.
Standing next to a doomed looking Angela Merkel, soon to face her own Brexit, president Obama said,
“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.”
He went on,
“Voting matters, organizing matters and being informed on the issues matter.”

Barrack Obama’s last trip to Europe as POTUS, what was supposed to be his victory lap, has turned into a funeral procession. For his failed policies. For the the failed European leaders who are about to be voted out. And for democracy itself (you have to watch until the end to see that part.)
But Obama did promise to help make Trump’s transition smooth didn’t he? Does inciting the protesters while out of the country seem like a help?
I’m really curious to know what you think about this.
