Sara Huckabee Sanders is a national treasure. I have no idea why a gay hillbilly restaurant in Virginia didn’t want to serve her. The White House Press Secretary just decimated Obama’s lawless and unconstitutional presidency in one short statement and it’s the funniest thing to happen all month. The best part is, there is no counter argument to what she said, because it’s 100% true.
Check this out from Fox News:
“You mean are we walking around making up laws? No, because we’re not the Obama administration. We’re actually trying to enforce the laws that are on the books.” —@PressSec to reporter responding to a question on immigration pic.twitter.com/6XF3RqFL1X

During the White House press briefing a reporter asked if President Trump was going to “fix” the broken immigration system with executive orders.
“You mean are we walking around making up laws? No, because we’re not the Obama administration. We’re actually trying to enforce the laws that are on the books,” replied Sanders in her no nonsense way.
Boom! That was the Mother Of All Bombs and Obama’s sad legacy now has a huge smoldering crater in it. I actually can’t think of a better way to describe Obama’s 8 ineffective years in office.
Besides ramming through ObamaCare early in his presidency, Obama couldn’t get anything done except signing executive orders to make his own laws. He is allegedly a Constitutional scholar, but for some reason was unaware that POTUS doesn’t get to make the laws. He made health care laws with his pen and he did that same for immigration and even gun control.
Luckily the courts undid most of Obama’s unconstitutional crap and whatever was left over, President Trump took out with his own pen. It really says a lot about Obama’s presidency that his successor could essentially wipe out his entire 8-year legacy with a few strokes of a pen.
Sanders’ statement gets even funnier because she also implies that the Trump administration didn’t enforce the laws on the books, something that is also true. When Obama couldn’t change a law he didn’t like with executive action, he simply ignored it. Again, you’d think that a Constitutional scholar would be aware the the President’s job is to enforce them law. The Constitution is actually pretty specific about the separation of powers, but maybe Obama never read that part.
And what’s the left’s defense against what Sanders said? Did Obama illegally legislate from the Oval Office? Yup. Did he pick and chose which laws to enforce based on his liberal agenda? You betcha.
My guess is the liberal response will be to call Sarah Huckabee Sanders a racist. Obama was the first African American president and according to liberals any criticism of him, even if it’s completely true, is pure racism. After that, then left will obviously mock the Press Secretary’s appearance because that’s what they consider legitimate political discourse.
The only thing that would make this better is if there were a reaction video of Obama watching Sanders say this about his administration. I imagine the look on Obama’s face would be priceless. It’d probably be even better in slow motion.
