As you may have noticed, the liberals are up in arms over unproven allegations that the Russian government hacked DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign e-mails to influence the election in Donald Trump’s favor. There are a lot of questions about this, but the biggest one is: why didn’t Obama do or say something about this before the election? The answer, it turns out, is one of the most hysterical things you will ever read. Obama didn’t take any action against Russian hacking because he figured Hillary was going to win, so why rock the boat.
NBC dropped this bombshell:
The Obama administration didn’t respond more forcefully to Russian hacking before the presidential election because they didn’t want to appear to be interfering in the election and they thought that Hillary Clinton was going to win and a potential cyber war with Russia wasn’t worth it, multiple high-level government officials told NBC News.
“They thought she was going to win, so they were willing to kick the can down the road,” said an anonymous U.S official familiar with the Russian hacking.
There are several ways to look at this and none of them make Obama look good, but the funniest way is that he was so confident that Hillary was going to win that this hacking, which is now a huge problem, was no big deal.
I think this whole thing is bullshit, but if we go by the official story, the Russians hacking Democratic Party e-mails hijacked the election for Trump and undermined our very democracy. And yet, before the election when Obama was so sure Hillary would win, he didn’t think much of it at all. If this is the story Obama really wants to go with it makes him look like a terrible leader with no foresight and weak foreign policy capabilities. I’m not going to dispute that one bit.
Because NBC is basically a propaganda arm for the Democratic Party, they tried to make it seem like Obama isn’t woefully incompetent by showing that he at least tried to do something about Russian hacking before the election:
The administration did take action in response to the hack prior to the election. In September, President Obama privately confronted Vladimir Putin about the hacks at the G-20 summit in China. He warned the Russian President of unspecified consequences if the hacks continued.
I can only imagine how hard Putin must have laughed in Obama’s face during this confrontation. The Russian President has made a career out of making Obama look bad from Syria to the Ukraine to…well everything.
Like I said, this whole Russian hacking of our election is a load of garbage. It’s Obama’s last-ditch effort to delegitimize Trump’s presidency. There is no evidence whatsoever that the Kremlin directed any cyber attack at all and WikiLeaks is saying they got the DNC and Hillary campaign emails from a disgruntled democrat.
Here’s how you can tell this is an Obama lie without having to see any evidence about who really did the hacking: Obama says that he knows Russia hacked the democrats to interfere with our election and then explains that he didn’t do anything about it because he didn’t want to interfere with our election.
The funny takeaway here is that Obama is so desperate to hang a cloud of suspicion over Trump’s presidency that he’s willing to make himself look like an ineffective buffoon. Again, I’m not going to dispute that one bit. I think it perfectly sums up Obama’s entire tenure in the White House.
